More On: Conan Chop Chop

Funcom and Mighty Kingdom's Conan Chop Chop released yesterday onto PC and consoles, so the Gaming Nexus game came together to take a swipe at the the game's funny and chaotic multiplayer. Allowing players to choose from four different characters, Chop Chop drops them into a a fairly straightforward fantasy forest for a little bit of "chop chop". Before long, players find themselves in a trap-laden dungeon, culminating in a wicked boss fight.

Games N Moorer's Joseph Moorer was joined last night by Gaming Nexus luminaries Eric Hauter, John Yan, and Elliot Hilderbrand (you like how I just called myself a luminary there?) for an hour of Chop Chop fun. As you can see from the video below, we came to terms with the first boss fairly quickly, beating him on our first run. But nothing could have prepared us for the chaos and carnage unleashed by the second boss - nor could we have known how epic and impressive John Yan's last stand would turn out to be.

Multiplayer in Conan Chop Chop is fairly easy to navigate. Though you can pass room codes, on Steam we simply used the "Invite" option to join up with each other, which worked pretty seamlessly. The game does have a little story, but it all seems to boil down to the defeat of four bosses, which will unlock a big door and allow players to fight the big bad wizard and beat the game. Along the way, players will be able to stock up on epic gear and perks, though this is a roguelike, so these awesome goodies are not permanent. Still though, the stronger you are, the more likely you are to survive the apocalyptic boss fights waiting for you at the end of each dungeon. This is easier said than done - interested parties might want to recruit their three best gamer friends, because you will need to be operating on John Yan-levels of brilliance once you get further into the game. 

Conan Chop Chop is now available on Steam, PlayStation Consoles, Xbox Consoles, and Nintendo Switch.

About Author

Howdy.  My name is Eric Hauter, and I am a dad with a ton of kids.  During my non-existent spare time, I like to play a wide variety of games, including JRPGs, strategy and action games (with the occasional trip into the black hole of MMOs). I am intrigued by the prospect of cloud gaming, and am often found poking around the cloud various platforms looking for fun and interesting stories.  I was an early adopter of PSVR (I had one delivered on release day), and I’ve enjoyed trying out the variety of games that have released since day one. I've since added an Oculus Quest 2 to my headset collection.  I’m intrigued by the possibilities presented by VR multi-player, and I try almost every multi-player game that gets released.

My first system was a Commodore 64, and I’ve owned countless systems since then.  I was a manager at a toy store for the release of PS1, PS2, N64 and Dreamcast, so my nostalgia that era of gaming runs pretty deep.  Currently, I play on Stadia, PS5, PS4, PSVR, Quest 2, Switch, Luna, GeForce Now, and a super sweet gaming PC built by Joh Yan.  While I lean towards Sony products, I don’t have any brand loyalty, and am perfectly willing to play game on other systems.

When I’m not playing games or wrangling my gaggle of children, I enjoy watching horror movies and doing all the other geeky activities one might expect.
