How to play co-op in Temtem

While the Pokemon games have inched somewhat closer and closer to giving us the level of multiplayer functionality we've wanted from the series for years now, Temtem made playing with others a core of its design. While not quite an MMO, you will be automatically dropped into a server with dozens of other tamers roaming around the Archipelago. This makes the world feel far more alive and reactive, plus it opens up tons of new opportunities for co-operation.

What You Need

  • A friend with TemTem

There's a lot you can do together in Temtem. You can obviously battle it out with just about anyone you want, but the main appeal will certainly be teaming up to play the game in co-op. This will allow you to help, or get some help, with the main story. Of course, there are some limitations and things to know about how it all works. Since there's no real tutorial explaining the systems, we'll train you on how to play co-op in Temtem.

How to find and add friends

You can only team up with friends in Temtem, meaning you will, of course, first need to actually have some friends online to play with. Temtem has its own dedicated friend list and system to manage. Here's how it works.

Step 1: Load up Temtem and open your Main menu.

Step 2: Select the icon of Two people.

Step 3: Select the Friends option.

Step 4: Select Tamer search at the top.

Step 5: You will need to know either your friend's Tamer name or ID number from their profile to search.

Step 6: Once you've found your friend, select the Magnifying glass icon.

Step 7: Select the Plus sign to send them a friend request.

Step 8: Once they have accepted your request, they will appear in your friends list.

How to play co-op

Now that you've got at least one friendly tamer on your list and ready to play with you, here's how to start a co-op session.

Step 1: With you and your friend online, go to the same location. (You don't have to be in the same instance, but you do need to be in the same area regardless for co-op to work.)

Step 2: Open your Main menu and select Interact.

Step 3: Select your friend from the list and hit Co-op.

Step 4: Once they accept your request, you will be in a co-op session!

How does co-op work?

Now, just because you can team up with any friend in Temtem, that doesn't mean that you can somewhat break the game. Co-op sessions scale to the lower level between you and your friend, as well as lock progression only to where the lower-level player is. That means that the higher-level player will only be helping the lower-level player and not making any story progress. You will still earn XP, though.

To somewhat compensate, each co-op player will also only have access to the first three Temtem on their teams. On the other hand, each player can use any items on either their own or their partner's Temtem.

How to connect your Nintendo Switch to a TV

The Nintendo Switch has quickly become a household item. The system works as both a handheld device and a TV console, making it both versatile and convenient for players to use. Although using the Switch in its handheld form is awesome, the reality is that the graphics on a TV can enhance the experience of any Switch player. For those of us that struggle to put systems together, there is hope. Fortunately for us, the Switch is actually pretty easy to hook up to any TV, so long as it has an HDMI slot. Here's how.
Setting up the Nintendo Switch

For those who are new to the system, every purchase of the Nintendo Switch not only includes the Switch itself but also a Switch dock. This dock will be key in putting your system together for the TV. The first thing you're going to want to do is take out the dock and all the cords. Make sure that you have the dock, an HDMI cord, and a power cord for the system. If all three are present, you're good to start!

Exoprimal: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
A group of players fights a T-Rex in Exoprimal.

Warning: There's been a crisis detected. You might call it a dino crisis, but Capcom won't. Exoprimal may look like the long-awaited revival of the Resident Evil spinoff series that replaced zombies with dinosaurs for a new twist on survival horror, but it's not. It's a new IP entirely.

Revealed at the March 2022 State of Play showcase, Exoprimal was a very unexpected announcement from Capcom. We didn't know what to expect going into the showcase, let alone that Capcom would be there with a brand new game. Unlike its other popular ongoing series and recent output of new IP, Exoprimal appears to take itself a bit less seriously, judging by the trailer and premise -- and it looks like a ton of fun. While it might not be the next Dino Crisis as some had hoped, here's everything we know about the chaotic dinosaur-filled shooter game Exoprimal.

How to unlock augments in Fortnite

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible.
