Raygan and Shane fly solo this week as Raygan visits his bro-host in person! (Please forgive any dip in audio quality.) We discuss Helldivers for Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and Playstation Vita.
Helldivers, from the makers of Magika, is a top-down four-player co-op dual-stick shooter. (That was four, count ’em four hyphens!) It may appear a little generic at first, but it has some of the most thought out game balance of any online co-op game we’ve ever played. We discuss the many design decisions that lead to making this the rare online game that’s fun to play with literally anyone.
