Orcs Must Die! Unchained Gets New Hero, Map, And Traps

Be it through books, games, or movies, the fantasy genre of late has started to take a closer look at mankind's greatest foe: the orc.  Stances have begun to soften, their portrayals as heartless monsters have been replaced with those presenting them as savage, yet honorable creatures, and certainly not created to oppose the forces of good.  The Orcs Must Die! franchise (including Orcs Must Die! Unchained) brings us back to the days of yore, when orcs were evil and needed to be slain.  That was that.

You drop the beat, I'll bust the moves.

Let's Play Warlocks vs Shadows as Beat Droppin Dub-Step Wizards

Warlocks vs Shadows has created a new genre of co-op gaming. One in which a bass dropping wizard can unleash phat beats upon enemies while his co-op partner dances like its his job unleashing a storm of fireballs from the sky. If that's isn't a unique co-op experience, I don't know what is. In our latest let's play, we take a look at the final version of the indie action game on Steam in two player co-op - though you can play four. Can you imagine the sick beats?

Killing Floor 2 Update Officially Available, Check It Out For Free This Weekend

The relaxation of Labor Day Weekend is nearly upon us, and with it comes the latest update to the decidedly un-relaxing Killing Floor 2.  Unless, that is, you find zombie dismemberment relaxing.  Look, Co-optimus is a judgement-free zone.  Some people need a quiet room and meditation, others need to rip the arms off legions of the undead.

Star Wars Battlefront Beta Drops In October With New Game Mode

Ladies and Gentlemen, in case you haven’t already seen the signs Star Wars fever is upon us and it’s looking to get a whole lot bigger this holiday season. With the recent launch of Disney Infinity 3.0, the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront game and Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters in December it is honestly the best year to be a Star Wars fan. So it looks like September, November and December are all covered with fantastic Star Wars stuff, but what about October? Are we really going to go a whole month with nothing to fulfill our Star Wars pallet? Well it looks like that is no longer the case thanks to EA.

Time To Team Up For Some Monster Hunting Action

Evolve Goes Free For Labor Day Weekend

Earlier this year Evolve was released and it pretty much fell by the wayside as gamers did not see the value in the 4v1 first person shooter. I myself had a blast with the game and though I agree the price was a bit high I never like I was robbed of my money while playing. Nonetheless those that have stayed away will get the chance to play the game for free this Labor Day weekend on both PC and Xbox One.

Sink Your Teeth Into Scalebound's Gameplay Overview

Hideki Kamiya isn't necessarily a name synonymous with co-op. The longtime game director is mostly known for fast-paced action games where a single instant can mean pulling off the sweetest 37-hit combo of all time, or getting knocked into a wall and then pounded into mush like a loser. The revelation of his newest game, Scalebound having a four player co-op mode where you team up to wreck havoc on colossal monsters was a bit of a shocker, especially since it gave off a very distinct Monster Hunter vibe.

Failure to Launch

Destiny’s Taken King DLC Will Launch Without Raid

So if you’re like me and my co-op buddies Destiny’s newest DLC The Taken King which launches on September 15th was a day to be extremely excited about. A day that you knew would be spent with friends for hours. Well it looks like after an interview creative director Luke Smith had with IGN that is less the case. Reason being is that Destiny's new raid, King's Fall, won't be available when The Taken King launches. The interview goes on to say that Bungie has an idea of when the raid will launch but that it defiantly will not be on day one.

A game where "witch doctor" is an honest profession.

Full Mojo Rampage Mojo's Onto Consoles Soon

Much like the skeletal minions inhabiting its dungeons, Full Mojo Rampage claws itself from an obscure grave on Steam and onto PS4s and Xbox Ones everywhere. The four player co-op roguelike comes to us from Nicalis Inc of Binding of Isaac: Rebirth fame, and slaps you and your friends down in a voodoo inspired dungeon romp. Choose classes based on various Loa, or "voodoo gods" and hex your enemies into oblivion.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Back To Basics Edition

Sometimes, you've just gotta get back to your roots.  Whether it's (virtual) toy soldiers, weekends in nature, or spiritual successors, at least a few of us want to hop a bit backwards in time and rediscover what really makes us happy.  The rest of the crew seems to already have this "happiness" thing figured out, though, so they're exploring metroidvanias and anime games galore.  Check it out:

Friday Awesomely Live Co-Op took some interesting twists the past few weeks. If you haven't noticed, the three of us are super dads, and sometimes dad duties or other family things get in the way of F.A.L.C.O., but the show must go on! I found myself with no co-hosts a couple weeks ago, and that would be fine if this were So-Loptimus, but alas, we are Co-Optimus, so I did what every super dad does in this type of situation: con their kids into work.

Ryan Leonard glumly scanned the dressing room walls surrounding him.  Celta de Vigo's facilities were undoubtedly nicer than the converted boat repair shop that his former team used, but they lacked character.  Where were the mold-emblazoned ceiling tiles?  Where was the pile of discarded Wild Cherry Capri Suns that marked Jack's domain?  Where was the plaque dictating his friend Han Kook's Thirteen Standards For Polite Social Interaction?

Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime Brings Romance To The Final Frontier This September

Space is such a stressful place.  When you're hurtling through the infinite void and encountering who-knows-what every half hour, odds are pretty good that things will eventually get dicey.  That's why you need a partner, someone to stick by your side no matter who you piss off or how many alien chainsaw guns you have to dodge.  Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime crystalizes this idea in game form, giving you and a galactic comrade the chance to guide your circular spacecraft through somehow increasingly dangerous situations.
