Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Do you dream of summoning a slew of skeletal minions to swarm your enemies while your companions conjure torrents of fire and lightning beside you? Are you someone who enjoys teaming up with others to create as much chaos as possible? In Diablo II: Resurrected, you can vanquish the minions of the Burning Hells with up to eight players in the cooperative gameplay mode, allowing you to effectively build your own mayhem-inducing army. But, with seven classes and 210 skills to choose from, the prospect of creating a perfect party to delve into the depths of Sanctuary with might seem daunting. Not sure what to bring? We’ve got you covered. 

Each suggested composition can be used for parties of 2, 3, 4, or more. Keep in mind that possible builds below are just a sampling of the many multiplayer combinations you can choose from – in the end, it’s important to always prioritize your own fun and try out new classes and skills that interest you.

Read on and get started in Diablo II: Resurrected co-op by testing out some of the builds below.

Damage boosting

Looking to create high-octane carnage? Try out a few different one-way damage-boosting builds. The basis of each build is simple: pair a class that provides damage amplification with any other classes built to cause some serious slaughter. While the damage booster won’t receive any enhancements of their own, they’ll get to reap the rewards accumulated by their companions as they hack their way through hordes of hellspawn.

There are numerous ways to build a party around damage amplification, so don’t hesitate to experiment with different skills and figure out what works best for your band. Here’s a composition concept to try out:

Elemental damage

Combine a Paladin with the Conviction skill or a Necromancer with the Lower Resist skill with any Sorceress, a Javelin-specialized Amazon, or a Trap-specialized Assassin.

Conviction is an Offensive Aura skill for the Paladin. It can be used to lower the fire, cold, and lightning resistance of nearby monsters, allowing the Paladin and their partners to break through most elemental immunities, save for poison immunity. Similarly, the Necromancer’s Lower Resist skill makes it so any elemental attacks deal more damage to cursed monsters, increasing enemies’ susceptibility to all elemental magics, including poison.

Either of these can be paired with any number of elemental damage-specialized classes. Since the Sorceress specializes exclusively in elemental magic, she’s the most ideal candidate to pair up with your Paladin or Necromancer, but she’s far from the only one. Other classes you can bring along include an Amazon using Javelins and an Assassin using Traps. The Javelin-wielding Amazon is a stalwart damage-dealer who can utilize skills like Lightning Fury, making her a powerful pick for any group. For the Assassin, the Traps tree has potent skills like Lightning Sentry that synergize well with other classes in co-op.

Combining damage types

If you’re looking for an extremely versatile way of creating a party, try pulling in a variety of classes where each member is specialized to put out a different type of damage. By combining elemental damage specialists with physical damage specialists, you’ll be able to cover your bases and tackle enemies with different immunities that you come across in your adventures.

The classic Sega games of Lost Judgment

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hey folks, are you ready to return to Kamurocho and set off on a new adventure in Isezaki Ijincho?

If you’ve previously experienced Judgment or the Yakuza series, you’ll know that despite all the investigations you take on, there’s still time to take a break from investigating and play some retro classics!

The Club SEGA arcade naturally has many games to offer, including a couple of new titles. However, this time our hard-boiled protagonist Yagami can also play Master System games in his office, and even switch between western and Japanese versions of these 8-bit wonders.

Here’s a breakdown of the games you can find throughout your adventure:


Space Harrier (1985) is the arcade shooter that put SEGA on the map. You are the Harrier, and your mission is to take down enemies including giant dragons while avoiding obstacles and enemy fire.

Building on the success of Hang-On, Super Hang-On (1987) has you steering a motorcycle across four difficulty classes divided into stages across continents. Here, your foe is time itself: make sure to avoid going off-track or running into other racers if you plan on reaching that next checkpoint!

Fantasy Zone (1986) is a shoot ‘em up (or indeed, “cute ‘em up”) where the adorable spaceship Opa-Opa must track down and defeat bases and bosses across each stage. Along your journey be sure to upgrade your ship – don’t underestimate just how tough your foes can get.

Fighting Vipers (1995) brings its own unique spin to the fighting game genre by adding armor to its roster of fighters. If you batter your enemies enough, their armor will explode off their bodies, and you can even launch them through stage walls if your final attack of the round hits hard enough!

Say cheese! Announcing Kena: Bridge of Spirits’ Photo Mode

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Looking forward to Kena: Bridge of Spirits’ PlayStation launch on September 21, we are very excited to announce a special feature we’ve been keeping under wraps for quite awhile: Photo Mode!

You can activate photo mode all along your adventure and capture epic and adorable photos of your journey! Characters (including all the Rot!) will freeze by default once you enter photo mode, but you can “resume action” to bring them back to life. As you move the camera, they will keep their attention on you; following and engaging with the camera as you set up your perfect shot.

Our favorite part is the CHEESE button! Once you’ve set up your photo angle, you’ll have the option to have the characters in the photo say “CHEESE!” and strike a pose. Many characters have multiple poses, so don’t miss getting a great variety of fun shots in the same location! It’s also a fun way to get to know the characters better.

Developing photo mode and the Cheese function were exciting animation opportunities for us! Not only does this function introduce another entertaining element for players, it also allowed us to showcase character personalities as we developed each unique pose. 

Throughout development, so much of our focus went into the dynamic story moments, epic action and battle animations, and beautifully crafted cut-scenes, but we also wanted to focus on the characters at rest. Who are they on their off time? Are they a little more shy, or are they a total ham? We hope that getting the chance to check in with every character in the more peaceful, interim moments helps you fall in love with the characters of Kena’s world, just like we have.
