Surgeon Simulator 2 screenshot of the wacky multiplayer mode

If you ever thought that Surgeon Simulator just wasn't chaotic enough, you might be happy to hear that the newly released Surgeon Simulator 2 has brought in a co-op mode for up to four players. Every doctor is the same and has exactly the same lack of competence and fine motor control, so whether the addition of new staff is a actually good thing for your patients will highly depend on how much they care about silly things like lungs and such.

As for what exactly all of this nonsense looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through one of the recent trailers. Have a gander, it'll clue you in quite nicely on just what Surgeon Simulator 2 is all about:

Necromunda: Underhive Wars official artwork and logo

[Update]: Necromunda: Underhive Wars has now arrived for PC and consoles, though not without a fair few bugs.

It has been quite a while since Necromunda: Underhive Wars was first announced, but the long wait is now almost over! You can expect to see Necromunda and its somewhat unique take on tactical gameplay this September 8th on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

When it comes to the actual gameplay, in Necromunda you'll be able to choose from one of three unique gangs, customize and specialize each of their members, and then send them to glorious battle in distinctly Warhammer 40k dystopian hellholes. While the primary focus is on the story-driven singleplayer campaign, there will also be four-way online multiplayer, just in case you feel like a standard battle simply isn't chaotic enough.

[Update #2]: Fall Guys' major Season 2 update has brought in plenty of medieval mayhem!

[Update]: Fall Guys' mid-season update has remixed the levels and added Easy Anti-Cheat!

While Fall Guys is a remarkably entertaining game, it does have one major flaw - the game modes can get very repetitive, very quickly. The maps themselves don't change, so once you've gone through them all a couple of times, there's very little that can catch you off guard. And given that Fall Guys is all about the chaotic action, having everyone be experts on each challenge isn't exactly ideal.

In order to fix this and add some much needed variety, the Fall Guys team has just announced a whole bunch of new content! Expect to see an assortment of medieval-themed maps, plenty of heavily armored cosmetics, new and wacky emotes, and naturally, a healthy dose of raw chaos.

In a bit of a stark contrast to the previous few patches that added highly thematic factions and units, the new Legacy Faction update has gone all out on the craziness. As such, the new faction sports not only obviously overcompensating spearmen and explosive barrel-riding maniacs, but also a modern tank - because why not!

As for what exactly all of this nonsense looks like in glorious combat, that you can find out through the recently posted teaser trailer. Have a gander, it's about as delightfully wacky as you would expect:

Rogue Legacy 2 screenshot of a broken throne

After being pushed back a couple of weeks in order to get everything nice and polished up, the roguelike action game Rogue Legacy 2 has now landed onto Steam Early Access. Much like its predecessor, Rogue Legacy 2 will have you explore a large and randomly generated world with a variety of equally random characters, each of which will have some sort of strange or interesting quirk for you to contend with.

Since this is a concept that's far easier to explain through actual gameplay, allow me to share the recently posted launch trailer. Have a gander, it's a rather informative one:

Dwarf Fortress screenshot of the improved UI

While Dwarf Fortress is a brilliant game with a genuinely stunning amount of depth, its archaic UI and rather bland art style can make it nearly impenetrable to new players. If you're starting out you pretty much need to play it alongside a step-by-step guide, and even then, figuring out how to navigate all of the menus is a rather herculean task.

As such, I'm very happy to say that the upcoming Steam version will not only have actual visuals that clearly represent what's happening on screen, but also a much more clean and usable UI! Best of all, the freshly reworked UI will have mouse support, so the days of having to memorize a myriad of hotkeys in order to quickly advance through menus are now finally coming to an end!

Factorio official artwork and logo

Factorio has been in Early Access for quite a while now, during which the developers have released update after update, constantly expanding and polishing up the various bits of content. Because of this, Factorio has felt like a genuinely finished game for at least a few years at this point.

However, the developers were never happy with its various small flaws, and so they opted to put in even more effort into getting Factorio polished up to a mirror sheen. Thankfully, all that hard work has definitely paid off as Factorio's version 1.0 is downright brilliant, as evidenced by even the fickle Steam reviews giving it a 99% positive rating!

Monster Crown official artwork and logo

While Pokemon inspired games have become a fairly common sight these days, Monster Crown stands completely apart from the rest by choosing to take things in a darker direction. Unlike the usual situation where you cheerfully roam the land and jam wild animals into your pockets, in Monster Crown it is the monsters themselves that rule over all, and it is you that will need to make pacts with them in order to receive any sort of aid.

From there you can either use your powers to help those around you and thwart the constantly looming threat, or simply become an even greater one yourself! As for how exactly this translates into gameplay terms, that you can find out through the recent launch trailer. Have a gander:

Fae Tactics screenshot of the combat and a crit

If you're a fan of oldschool strategy games, especially things like Final Fantasy Tactics, you might want to check out the newly launched Fae Tactics. To put it simply, Fae Tactics will have you explore the world while befriending a wide variety of characters, battle and capture a myriad of Fae creatures, and naturally, manage both your equipment and magical elements in order to best counter whatever challenge gets thrown right at you.

You can get a pretty good idea of how all of this translates into actual gameplay, as well as what sort of visual style Fae Tactics is going for, through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a peek:

Fall Guys screenshot of multiplayer shenanigans

[Update]: Fall Guys Season 2 is bringing in a bunch of medieval-themed maps and cosmetics!

If you've somehow managed to avoid seeing any mention of it, Fall Guys is a Takeshi's Castle inspired party game for up to 60 players that's all about competing in a variety of wacky and physics based challenges. It's simple to learn, extremely fun in short bursts, absolutely adorable, and unsurprisingly, pretty darn popular at the moment.

However, Fall Guys does have one rather major problem - after a while, the levels do tend to get a bit samey given that there's only a small amount of them. As such, I am very happy to say that the developers are already working on solving this little issue, and will be releasing a fan-favorite from the beta later today.
