Trials of Azra Co-Op Review

Dibs on that dead body!

So, your dog's dead. That's a real bummer, right? It was an ordinary afternoon when blam-o, lightning strikes and sends the little pupper to another world. Things start looking a little bleak until you realize you can possess and control your four legged friend. Surely that'll be useful in a world-spanning adventure where you fight sword wielding lizardmen while chasing down a sarcastic wizard?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Cruisin' AUS

Racing's on the mind this weekend, folks. The Co-Opticrew has gotten a taste of the latest in the Forza Horizon series, and now we just can't get enough. It's like they say: Once you pop, you become addicted to cruising the Outback in pursuit of growing your brand and enticing more fans to join your absurdly destructive car festival until you're a dust-covered husk of your former self.

Lost? But it\'s like, right there.

Lost Castle Co-Op Review

It's time for something that resembles a roguelike! Lost Castle shoves a random character in your hands and turns you loose in a world full of enemies and treasure. No puzzles, no platforming, just a lot of hacking and slashing followed by looting and upgrading. It's a sweet throwback to some classics in the genre, complete with local co-op...

New Creation Crystal Video Out For Skylanders Imaginators

Hey, kid.  Yeah, you.  Come on over here.  I know the hot new thing on the block is all them Skylanders with their "Spyros" and their what-nots, but what if I told you the rules ain't gotta be followed any more?  What if I told you that, with the upcoming release of Skylanders Imaginators, you wouldn't have to adhere to their strict limitations about being a dragon or a lava-person or a whats-it with the stumps for hands?

Forza Horizon 3 Co-Op Review

Cooperative racing games are incredibly rare. Besides The Crew and Burnout Paradise, you just don’t see many games that let friends team up on the road. That’s what makes this year’s Xbox and Windows 10 exclusive Forza Horizon 3 so special. Horizon has always been a fantastic open-world racing series, and now racers can finally wo...

Get a load of the new folks.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Fresh Meat

Ladies and gentlemen, I have the pleasure of introducing the two latest additions to the Co-Opticrew: Perron Wiley and Brian Harrison!  Naturally, in accordance with the 1986 edition of Gaming Journalism Customs And Bylaws, we'll be conducting a series of hazing rituals throughout their first week of employment.  Get this:  first, we have them "writing articles", and once that's done, they'll have to "play video games".  Then, once they think they're finally out of the woods, they'll be "telling dumb jokes on Slack".

Check Out The New Gameplay Trailer For Dark Souls 3's "Ashes of Ariandel" DLC

"This is it," you said to yourself back in April.  "One final time into the Dark Souls breach, and then I'm off the stuff for good."  You did it all.  You deciphered the obtuse lore.  You gathered the most hard-to-reach items.  You downed even the toughest of foes.  You died, over and over and over, and at long last, you emerged from the misty land of Lothric, battered and scarred, but all the better for it.  You were finally done.

Two More Monsters Added To Evolve Stage 2's Co-op Mode

Evolve Stage 2's latest update, 2.11, has been delivered to the swarming masses, and with it came a couple more foes for the co-op crowd to mercilessly hunt down - the Gorgon and the Meteor Goliath.  Neither is new, of course, as the duo was available in The-Game-Of-Which-We-Do-Not-Speak, but it sure is nice to have some more options when setting up a match in the game's new "Coop vs AI" queue.
