What Happens to Abandoned Multiplayer Games?

Let them live!

Have you ever really enjoyed playing an online multiplayer game, only to have the server abandoned? This is one of the most frustrating aspects of online multiplayer games, but it does happen to all games eventually. Sometimes companies feel the need to officially move on from a video game and shut it down. Whether this is due to poor sales, a new ...

Game out in Alpha, Early Access Soon

Gunnihilation Is Part Contra, Part Broforce - All Bullet Hell.

If you're looking to get a classic gaming fix on, but with a modern day edge, the upcoming game Gunnihilation by Robopixel Games should fill the void. Heavily inspired by classic arcade games like Contra and Smash T.V., you're dropped into a 16-bit world filled with enemy soldiers, mechs, and other baddies as you jump, shoot, and dodge your way through the gunfire.

Local Co-Op Patch Coming to Alienation Next Week

Housemarque's Alienation may well be my favorite twin-stick shooter released this year. From the world progression to the loot progression, there's always a new challenge and better gear waiting just around the corner. While the game has been an online co-op only affair since its launch, the much requested local co-op option will be getting added in a free update on July 5.

GOD EATER: Resurrection Out Now on Vita and PS4

While many folks are familiar with the Monster Hunter series of games, Bandai Namco's Gods Eater Bust title was largely overlooked in the States. That may, in part, have been due to it being a PSP only game. The remastered version, GOD EATER: Resurrection, was released yesterday on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, so perhaps it will be able to reach a wider audience this time around.

Steam Summer Sale 2016 Co-Op Staff Picks

With Steam's 2016 Summer Sale in full effect, we here at Co-Optimus decided that it might be best to provide some sort of guide to help weary bargain hunters navigate the proverbial labyrinth of deals.  After all, what kind of cooperative gaming site would we be if we let our buddies get bogged down in the free-to-play quagmire?  What kind of authorities would we be if our site's stance on adventure games was "yeah, I dunno, they're probably all pretty good or whatever"?  I dare not dream of a world in which we cannot offer our suggestions to the unwashed masses.

Our Breakfast Buffet includes Blood and Bacon

Sometimes you have to dig deep...very deep into the Steam sales to find a gem. Sure it's easy to recognize the AAA titles and their 30% off values, but finding something that provides a real bang for your buck type scenario can be challenging amongst the thousands of titles. We did the work for you and found your next co-op game.
