PC Games to Play With Friends #2

The last time I covered this topic the feedback was very positive. In fact it was surprisingly positive and I haven’t really expected it to be so well received. So, when something succeeds like the last article about co-op gaming is the logical thing to do would be to make another one. After all, I did promise to touch on this subject sooner or later again so, here goes.

 

NBA 2K17

Last time I finished with a sports game but this time I decided to kick it off with one such as that.

It doesn’t really matter how much you are into sports or how much you’re not them. It doesn’t really matter if you’re playing a realistic game or some crazy fantasy that defines absolutely every law of physics that is known to mankind as long as the game is fun.

I’m saying this because I for one am not a fan of sport games but at a same time I absolutely love kicking it off with friends in NBA 2K17 (as of recently)!

The games just fine, as simple as that. There is no philosophy behind it, no complex game mechanics or story to uncover, no. It is as simple as it gets, a game of basketball.

If I had to compare it to FIFA, I’d say this one is a much faster game that relies heavily on reflexes and reaction while simultaneously making you come up with one strategy after another. Speaking of FIFA, NBA 2K17 has a similar in game purchase mechanics and it can take you a while until you get what you want so to save you some time and enable you to jump straight into the frying pan with your friends I found a way to easily get as many VC coins as you need with a simple online generator.

CRAWL

Well this game is technically still in its early access state, it is completely enjoyable.

I have a feeling like I’ve neglected my RPG loving fans in this game seems like a good way to redeem myself in your eyes.

There are a couple of things that are great about Crawl

  • you can get it for $15 on Steam
  • game supports up to four players and local co-op
  • you can play it with a keyboard and controllers at the same time
  • any kind of controller work since the game only needs two buttons and two analogue sticks
  • you can probably run it on a Pentium
  • is absolutely and ridiculously fun

In this game you take control of a hero trying to escape a complex of dungeons filled to the brim with deadly traps and even done their monsters. Now, if you thought this was a game of friendship and jolly cooperation, you’re wrong. The monsters and traps that I just mentioned are controlled by none other in your friends and they are very motivated to kill you because whoever gets to land the killing blowing you will become the next hero.

One moment you’ll be working with the people around you to take down a hero and if you succeed the tables will be turned and they will all be against you all of a sudden. Sounds simple enough, right?

Well to add some depth to the game let’s say that it has around 30 different monsters with unique attacks and skills while at the same time providing hero with a very rich choice of weapons to choose from that will enhance and define his play style even further. Now add some trinkets, special abilities and attributes to spice it all up and you should have a pretty decent idea of what Crawl is all about.

Definitely give it a try if you like dungeon crawling. And do not be fooled by its seemingly cheap design because this pixel art is one of the best I have ever seen in my entire life and believe me when I say that I have seen a lot of them!
