A breakout has happened within the SCP Foundation. SCPs 049, 096, 106, and 173 have escaped containment.
D Class have also been unlocked from their chambers.
Cause of the breakout is unknown, SCP-079 is currently unresponsive, unclear if SCP-079 is the cause of the breakout.
Nine Tail Fox are currently en route to the facility, ETA: 12 minutes.
All researchers are to evacuate the facility immediately and rendezvous with the N.T.F. and avoid both the SCPs and the D Class at all costs.
Chaos Insurgency has arrived onto the facility.
SCPs 049, 096, and 173 have been reclassified as Keter, all available units of the N.T.F. must eliminate any SCPs in sight, along with the Chaos Insurgency, and the D Class.
D Class must not escape from the facility.
Access to SCP-914 has been opened, all researchers must use SCP-914 to construct an administrator keycard and use it to activate the Alpha Warhead…
Destroy the underground facility…
Wipe out the Insurgents…
Wipe out the SCPs…
Survival is the only option…
If you see any of the SCPs…
RUN…

Okay seriousness aside, SCP: Secret Laboratory is the most fun I ever had with a multiplayer shooter. The visuals aren’t too amazing to look at, but I feel that adds to the creepiness factor, giving the game an uncanny look to it. There isn’t anything more terrifying than finding yourself alone within the foundation’s hallways only to suddenly come across the statue SCP-176 who will snap your neck once look away from it. Or getting caught by SCP-106’s personal dimension and trying to find out which door is the way out. And don’t get me started on SCP-096! Then you get gunned down by the either the Chaos Insurgency or the Nine Tail Fox. Some matches you’ll be on edge while hunting for the SCPs, and other times you’ll be having a good laugh with your teammates yelling out “D-BOIS” while stealing the keycards from the scientists and calling them “NERDS”. I’ve been coming back to this game quite often and had fun every time. The best part is that it is available for the low low price of… NOTHING. The game is still in development, so it is far from perfect. In my case, I had the game crash on me quite often, which can be quite annoying. Regardless there is a lot of potential for this game, and definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Nippon Marathon

Inspired by Japanese gameshows presents a crazy and fun local multiplayer foot race for fame! From heat seeking melons to old men in skirts, there is a lot of potential for this early access title.

I pretty much love this game, and I want to see more of it. So far I have been playing this game in single player, but even then it is still very fun to play through. One moment your in the lead and then suddenly you wind up tripping into a spectator, or getting knocked down by melons raining from the sky. It’s not all about winning the race, but being the most popular among the competition. You gain popularity by outrunning the competition, using items against your opponents, and answering the random question by Wedy Jones (The game’s field reporter). There is also (so far) a colorful cast of characters such as… man in lobster costume, girl in narwhal hoodie, a guy with a dog for a head, and an old man in schoolgirl uniform. This game is indeed a good time, especially with friends.

This game is an early access title, so that means this game is still unfinished (I mean you can’t even change the volume and sound effects, just turn them off and on). There are so far 4 courses, with 4 more coming later (I really want to see the Steamy Steamy Monkeys level), including a full marathon mode and even a planned story mode. My only criticism is that the character models don’t exactly look… amazing… but the game is seen from a top-down perspective so it’s not that big a deal. I would love to see more come to the game, maybe even see an online multiplayer mode get added to the game (though according to the devs it doesn’t look like they have any plans to add online multiplayer). As it stands this is a game I do highly recommend it, even in its current state. This is the ideal game to invite some friends over to your place and have a good laughing time.

Please note that a controller is HIGHLY recommended for this game.

If your interested in this title, its available on Steam for only $9.99! Check out the store page here!

Rainbow Six Siege

A fantastic and rewarding tactical shooter with a large focus on teamwork. Definitely worth a buy for your library. JUST DON’T BUY THE STARTER EDITION!

Okay… Starter Edition aside, Rainbow Six Siege is fantastic. Rainbow Six is all about TEAMWORK, and I like games that are all about teamwork. Every operator stands out fulfilling some role that can benefit the team, but what truly matters is how you use the operators, and how your team uses them. Communication is everything if you want to win a match! Where is the objective, what operators does the enemy team have, are they around that corner? It’s not about gunning down the enemy team, but HOW you take down the enemy team, and when you work together with your team the victory is that much sweeter. Ubisoft is always releasing new operators to add some flair to the competition and even including new event game modes like the outbreak event. It only just shows that more exciting and interesting things are coming to Rainbow Six.

Whether your casual or pro, you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of Rainbow Six Siege. Though I would not recommend picking up the Starter Edition since you only start with a 3 random attacking and defending operators, and you’ll have to unlock the rest through a slow 15-hour grind. If you want to play the game, I highly recommend you pick up the Standard Edition since you get all of the base operators from the start.

Check them out on Steam or their Official Site
