Playing video games is one of my favorite things to do. One thing I love even more? Being able to play with my husband. That’s why we’re always looking for good couch co-op or multiplayer games that we can enjoy.
Recently, Juan and I decided to revive our Press Pause youtube channel and are now creating content based on games and things we can do together. Our latest video covers Unruly Heroes, an action adventure game that can be played with up to four people. It is inspired by the Chinese legend: “A Journey to the West”.
While playing it, I was enamored by the beautiful environment and range of colors (a lot of yellow, red and green tones). It reminds you of titles like Trine and Rayman Origins. Gameplay felt very fluid and the variety between the characters abilities were great. We used controllers when playing and movement felt great while using them. The story/campaign is local only, while the PVP mode has both local and online. We still haven’t tried the PVP mode but I hope we’ll be able to very soon!
We made a video playing the first level of the game, check it out if you can.
What are some of your favorite video games that have co-op and/or multiplayer?
Lately, when I have some free time to spend it on the computer, I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2. I bought the game when it came out but only played it once or twice. I had only leveled my character up to level 25 at most. I worked on getting to level 80 (which I did) and now I’m working on doing map and activities completion whenever I have some time to spare.
It really is such a fun game, and it’s one of the prettiest MMOs I have ever played. The vistas feature provide such an amazing addition to map exploration and the cut-scenes they feature when they focus on a specific landscape, it’s just beautiful.
My main character (the one I leveled to level 80) is a Human Elementalist and I’ve had a blast playing with that character. The great thing about this game is that, compared to other MMOs, it was more options of things you can do that add a replay value to the game (I’m obsessed with jumping puzzles!). Right now, I’m trying to get 100% map completion and I’m at 80%, so I still have some work to do. While I do map completion, I’m taking advantage of special events that happen around the region that I’m trying to complete so I can win some goodies and money for the character.
This game definitely became my favorite MMO, I like it even more than World of Warcraft (and I was obsessed with WoW back when I played).
