MMO Co-Opportunities Volume LXXXIII: Winter Holiday Events

A round-up of winter holiday events for Tree of Life, EQ2, STO, and GW2

Since we’re decidedly in the midst of the winter holiday season, I decided to do something a little different for this month’s issue of MMO Co-Opportunities. Holiday-related events are often well-received in the MMO gaming community because they offer the chance to do something outside the normal routine and usually net players some exc...

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Gang Gets Shooty

It's one of those rare weekends when the Co-Opticrew has an almost fully unique set of gaming plans.  However, while we aren't necessarily playing the same games, there seems to be a common theme:  projectile weaponry.  Sometimes they're future guns and sometimes they're Nazi-shootin' guns, but whatever the case, they're being used to tackle whatever stands between us and sweet, virtual victory.

Your Favorite Films Now Featuring Aliens

Epic Loon Gameplay And Plot Reveal

What do the films It, Alien, Jurassic Park and Frankenstein all have in common? They’re all featured in the upcoming game Epic Loon from Macrales Studio, a small indie team devoted to diving back into classic movies and letting you take friends with you. In an interview from GamesCom, the team unpacked the direction for where their project is headed, as well as mentioning that, even though only four movies will make up the foundation for the game itself, there will be winks and nods to other popular movies.

THQ Nordic is run by a bunch of mad men... and I love it

Titan Quest Headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Next Spring

I'm sort of out of words for how stunned/impressed I am by THQ Nordic these days. After releasing new DLC for Titan Quest (an 11-year-old game) a few weeks ago, the developer/publisher told THEMSELVES "hold my beer" and announced yesterday that they'll be bringing the action-RPG to consoles in March 2018. Not only that, but they're releasing a Collector's Edition of it, too! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttt??!

Sword Coast Legends is On Sale for the Last Time

In March of last year, n-Space, the developer behind Sword Coast Legends, was shut down. The game, though, continued on and even got released on consoles a few months later. Presumably, it was the publisher, Digital Extremes that keep things going. Now, though, it seems that that particular publishing contract has expired and so, on December 31, the title will be removed from all digital store fronts.

New Trailer and Details for OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Shows

OVERKILL has been rather tight-lipped on their forthcoming co-op FPS title, The Walking Dead. In fact until recently, all we knew about the game was that it involved zombies and supported some kind of co-op, but no idea how many players or if it was just "PAYDAY with zombies" or what. On Monday, the Swedish developer shed a little bit of light on it all.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Demo Impressions

A few months ago, Fatshark teased a follow-up to their popular cooperative FPS, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide. Vermintide 2 is slated to come out sometime early next year with a number of improvements over the original, including a new hero progression system with different “career” options, a better loot system, and a new enemy force to face - Chaos. A beta is on its way, but ahead of that, we got to check out a limited demo and it left us wanting to see more.

The Division Is Having A Free Weekend

Ubisoft's cover/loot/toboggan shooter, The Division, hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire since its initial release in 2016.  Nevertheless, a core contingent of fans has been sticking with the game through thick and thin.  Why, you might ask, do said players seem impervious the allure of newer releases?  Well, you'll get a chance to see for yourself this weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One.
