Level up your love life on Valentine’s Day with these co-op video games, Digital News

What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day this year? (If you’re single and looking for that special someone, try finding bae with these dating apps.)

Besides the usual dinner date, it may also be a good idea to spend some safe quality time at home with bae considering we’re not exactly out of the woods yet with this pandemic.

Here’s our suggestion: Check out our shortlist of eight co-op video games from different genres that are easy to learn, especially if your BB is new to gaming. Side effect: Bae might start enjoying video games too.

It Takes Two

PC, Playstation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X

This award-winning masterpiece comfortably made it into our best games of 2021 list. You can only play it co-op and, honestly, it’s so fun – can’t tell you how many times I’ve argued or high-fived with bae over some of the puzzles in this game.

It Takes Two is an action-adventure game where you play a couple planning to get a divorce. Somehow, the two of you get transported into the bodies of dolls made by your daughter, and now you must reluctantly work together to get back into your own.

The story is wholesome, and the gameplay is playful and creative. If you want to intro your non-gamer S.O. to video games, this is the one that will get them hooked.

Overcooked 1 & 2

PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One

This is the quintessential game to test your relationship. In “Overcooked”, you’ll both play as chefs dishing out various food such as cakes, burgers, and sushi. What better way to build (or assess your compatibility) than working together to assemble the raw ingredients, slice, cook, and plate the dishes before sending out the diners’ orders.

It starts off

10 Games To Play If You Love High On Life

High On Life has proved to be an incredibly polarizing game. Even from the first clips that were released of it, you either loved it or hated it. Fans said that the game was incredibly witty and funny, while detractors say it drags on with unfunny banter. Meanwhile, opinions on the gameplay are entirely split — not to mention the other drama the game has brought with it.

But, the game does have its fans who truly love the experience for its oddball humor that never stops (for better or worse), for the strange and unique artstyle the studio always has, and the weirder take on an FPS game. No matter what you love from High On Life, there’s a similar game here for you.


Metal Hellsinger-1

FPS games are a genre that hasn’t seen much innovation in recent generations, so new takes like High On Life are a breath of fresh air — and one other fresh take is Metal: Hellsinger. Metal: Hellsinger is an FPS that sees you control a lost soul as you blast your way through the layers of hell to recover your voice and get revenge on the demons.

The main draw of Hellsinger is how it combines the FPS and rhythm game elements, with you having to move and shoot to the beat to deal extra damage, requiring extra strategy and thought in your movement and how to keep the beat going. The game also features many well known metal artists with songs that metal fans are bound to fall in love with.

New Life is Strange Game Possibly in Development

Life is Strange: True Colors developer Deck Nine Games is apparently hiring for a Lead Programmer position for “an unannounced AAA single-player adventure game.” The position requires experience with Unreal engine and current gen platforms, and the listing also refers to the project as the company’s “next narrative adventure game.” The job listing was reported on by game/”VeryAli Gaming, and was apparently posted to Paycom, but the position has either been filled, or been taken down, so has been unable to verify its authenticity. For now, fans of the series should take this rumor with a grain of salt!

Online job listings have become a great way for fans to learn about new games in development long before official announcements are made. These often give fans a window into game development that wouldn’t be otherwise possible! In fact, earlier this week, a similar job listing hinted at a console release for Valorant, which has yet to be announced by developer Riot Games. Of course, the downside about trying to glean information from job listings is that these projects could be several years from release, and plans are constantly changing in the video game industry, so they could be canceled before they even get announced.

Square Enix’s Life is Strange released back in 2015 and was developed by Dontnod Entertainment. 2021’s Life is Strange: True Colors was the first entry in the series developed by Deck Nine Games, and is the franchise’s most recent wholly new game. Earlier this year, a collection featuring Life Is Strange and Life Is Strange: Before the Storm was released on PC and Nintendo Switch, as well as PlayStation and Xbox platforms. That collection will have to satisfy fans until an actual new game is released, but it’s clear
