Super Motherload Is Out On Steam Today, And It's Still Fun

Super Motherload is a simple game about Cold War astronauts mining on Mars. It's a lot of fun, but beware the Hardcore mode, which is next to impossible. I took a look at it on PS4 if you want to see what you're in for.

Super Motherload Is Impossible On Hardcore Co-Op.

I'm a big fan of Super Motherload, and I was really looking forward to the co-op mode. After messing around in singleplayer, it seemed like it would be too easy, so I was determined to beat it on Hardcore. What a mistake.

I played with my friend Rob, and despite how it may seem, we really gave an honest attempt at not digging too far and EXPLODING. Because that's what happens when you run out of fuel. You EXPLODE. The problem is that both players share a fuel tank, but the tank capacity isn't expanded to compensate for the extra players. Half the time, we died before we could even gather up enough cash for the first upgrade.

Despite all this, we still played for several more hours on normal mode, so it's definitely not all bad.

Watchlist is where we show off gameplay of new and upcoming games. You'll see some videos that aren't on the front page of Kotaku, and hopefully some games you haven't seen before!
