The Best Co-Op Games on the 2018 Steam Summer Sale

The 2018 Steam Summer Sale is underway with an alien theme (cards and mini-game) to enjoy. As usual, just about the entire site is on sale right now which means you can get a lot of great PC games for a little bit of cash. We've combed through the titles, picked some from our Curator Store, and picked what we felt are the top 10 best deals in co-op gaming on Steam right now.

Pode Is Out Today On Nintendo Switch

At its core, co-op gaming is about working together to solve whatever problems a game throws your way, and no genres display this trait more explicitly than puzzlers.  The best co-op puzzlers, though, give each player a sense of distinct participation.  Everyone feels like they've contributed something meaningful to the cause, and no player dominates the path to a solution.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Sponsored By Ubisoft

While the Co-Opticrew's weekend plans certainly aren't dominated by Ubisoft games, they're getting their fair share of representation.  Maybe that's a testament to the lengthy support they've been offering for their franchises of late, or maybe it's a simple consequence of being knee-deep in the Summer Doldrums.  Either way, we'll be spending more than a few hours working our way through the best games France has to offer.

[E3 2018] - Fallout 76 May Allow For a Purely Cooperative Experience With Friends

If you watched Bethesda's E3 press conference on Sunday and thought, "hey! A Fallout survival game! I can get behind that!" and then thought, "But I don't want 'SSGSSBoneLord420' to drop a nuke on me," then there's some (potentially) good news! In an interview with Geoff Keighley, Todd Howard discussed how they're looking at implementing private servers for Fallout 76 "some period later" after launch.

[E3 2018] - Trials Rising Tandem Bike Mode Will Test Friendships

The next entry in the Trials series, Trials Rising, was announced during Ubisoft's press conference this week, but what they didn't mention is that it would include a two player couch co-op mode called "Tandem Bike." As the name implies, you and your buddy will ride on the same bike and have to successfully navigate through the levels as a team. The catch is that all the functions (i.e., gas, brake, lean) are split between you...

[E3 2018] - Latest Forsaken Trailer for Destiny 2 Reveals Big Story Moment

Bungie had a new trailer for the forthcoming Destiny 2 "Forsaken" expansion during last night's Sony press conference. Look, this thing and discussion of what's in it is everywhere, so I'm not even going to try and claim some kind of "spoiler warning" here, but if you really don't want to know about the story in the expansion until you're playing it, then just don't read any further.

[E3 2018] - Just Dance 2019 Drops In 2018

I truly admire Ubisoft for sticking with Just Dance being part of their E3 lineup. Every year they bringing out a dance crew, and they just commit. You may find it cringeworthy or awkward, but it is absolutely joyous and a refreshing break from how many of these presentations go. Just Dance 2019 will be marching its way onto just about every console produced in the past 13 years on October 23, 2018.

[E3 2018] - Pilot An Arwing and Play As Fox McCloud In Starlink

Last year, Ubisoft revealed a surprising partnership with Nintendo that lead to Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Yesterday, they announced they're teaming up again for their forthcoming action toys-to-life title, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The core conceit here is you pick a pilot, a frame, wings, and guns, and assemble your own ship to play in the game. If you pick it up on the Switch, you can do all that with Fox McCloud and his Arwing.
