Sony has detailed February's line-up of PlayStation Plus games, which is headlined by top-down shooter Helldivers on PlayStation 4, PS3 and Vita.
Co-op twin-stick shooter Helldivers is coming to PC via Steam in December, developer Arrowhead Game Studios has announced.
Arrowhead's latest top-down action arcade game Helldivers has launched with a series of bugs - and not the fun to kill splattery kind. One of these is particularly egregious as it wipes players' progress when their controllers die.
When I was growing up, I spent more money on the magazine Mean Machines than I actually did on the games it covered. Games were just games, after all. Mean Machines was a whole world, and the king of that world was Jaz Rignall, a quick-witted and amusingly-haired writer who always called things as he saw them.
In the future, social anxiety will be weaponised. That is to say, in the future, social anxiety will have a lot to do with whatever weapons you'll be carrying around. Helldivers is a top-down shooter for up to four players, and it sees you blasting your way through procedurally-generated alien worlds as a cheery space fascist, spreading Managed Democracy across the universe. So far, so Heinlein. But this is also the latest game from Magicka developer Arrowhead Game Studios - a studio, right, whose logo shows an arrow going through somebody's head. In other words, you should expect a few quirks. The biggest of these is friendly fire: it is so terribly easy to shoot your own team-mates in Helldivers. It's so terribly easy to be shot by your own team-mates. Or stepped on by them if they've unlocked mechs. Hell really is other people.
