Bloodsports.TV Co-Op Review

Bloodsports.TV is the cooperative “MOBA-like” game I’ve been looking for over these past few years. It drops much of the competitive metagame concepts, like laning, jungling, and last hit, in favor of focusing on a friendly, team-based survival experience....

Free Helldivers Update "Turning Up The Heat" Teased

You've battled aliens insects, cyborg freaks, and illuminate tricksters across hundreds of worlds in the constant galactic battle defending Super Earth. You've also died like a trillion times on various alien planets, and your body (if it wasn't smashed into paste by one of your own drop pods) was probably defaced by alien scum. Such is the eventual fate of all who join the Helldivers

The Adventures of Average Dude In Space

Halo 3: ODST Campaign Headed To The Master Chief Collection

At long last, one of the best campaigns (in my opinion) in the Halo franchise is headed to Halo: The Master Chief Collection.  In Halo 3: ODST, players roam the streets of New Mombasa trying to figure out what happened to their fellow non-Master Chief teammates, all set to a swanky soundtrack.  By having players assume the role of human soldiers, the game took on a very grounded view of the overarching Halo storyline and gave a brief glimpse into how the antics of John-117 and friends affected the rest of the galaxy.

Happy Wars To Come Out April 24th On Xbox One

Who's that?  Well, it's your old pal, Enoch, here to tell you that Happy Wars will be coming out April 24th for Xbox One!  Now look, I know things haven't been so good between us since I left you to die in that underground Vietnamese lemur fighting ring, but things change, people change!  I'm different now.  No one's trying to get you to throw down five million Vietnamese dongs on a particularly tough looking lemur named "The Arm Ripper" because their Vietnamese girlfriend was feeling lucky.  Not anymore.

Find Out If Your Puny Body Can Handle This Trine 3 Gameplay Footage

Let's get something out of the way right now.  The Trine series has been known for consistently beautiful visuals since it first graced our liquid crystal-ridden screens, and Frozenbyte has long been the master of the whimsical fantasy aesthetic.  These two facts are infinite truths.  Pillars of all that we know to be real.  Trine 3, though?  Woof, guys.  Woof.

Start Modding Dying Light On the PC

Way back in the distant month of February, Polish developer Techland sent out an unusual invitation. They wanted to know what we, the children of the internet, would want when it came to mod tools for Dying Light. Asking the internet for advice is typically similar to asking an army of fire ants to investigate your internal organs, but in this case, it seems to have paid off. Dying Light's PC version now supports mod tools, available on the Steam Workshop.

Gaming for the folks with the REAL guns

Join Us for Operation Supply Drop's 4th Annual 8-Bit Salute

Next month, Co-Optimus staff and community will be participating in Operation Supply Drop's 4th Annual 8-Bit Salute. We're hoping to put together a team of co-op gamers (like you!) to attempt a 24 hour marathon of gaming for our troops. Of course, it's not all fun and games, we're raising money to send gaming-filled care packages to our troops who are risking their lives to defend the US and her allies. These courageous folks are under continuous stress, and could truly benefit from a mental escape that gaming often provides.
