Be a hero for sick kids

Join Us For Extra Life 2017!

"Hate" is a strong word, and I only use it for things I absolutely despise. One of the things that I hate is seeing kids in the hospital with life threatening illnesses or injuries. I bet you hate that, too. Well, you can help. Co-Optimus is gathering a team of gamers to participate in Extra Life for the sixth straight year, and we invite you to join in on the fundraising! A Children's Miracle Network Hospital of your choice will receive all of the donations you raise on your page, and you get to play video games for an entire day!

Our Weekend In Gaming: Robots Of Yesteryear

Another weekend, another set of co-op plans for you to peruse.  Warframe appears to have snuck into our hearts in the days since we last met, what with its new "open world" and "cyborg ninjas".  Psh.  I remember when we took coffee black, our levels linear, and our ninjas thoroughly human, and we liked it.  I mean, sure, maybe we occasionally wished for broader choices and a couple laser arms, but we knew our place as consumers.  We'd get our sweet exploration/robot karate games when the developers were good and ready.

Mass Effect: Andromeda On Its Way To EA And Origin Access

Mass Effect: Andromeda was... well, let's say it wasn't particularly well received when it first hit back in March of this year.  Nevertheless, BioWare put in a good amount of work to address the issues levied at it upon initial release, and now, they're hoping to entice gamers back into the ME universe by making it available to play on both EA and Origin Access sometime in the near future.

The developers have a lot in store, but most importantly, set co-op activities

Frontier Expo Unveils Next Year's Plans for Elite: Dangerous

While Frontier Developments' Elite: Dangerous has allowed for a group of players to team up and fly around the galaxy together and complete larger community goals, which are larger objectives within a sector to which all players contribute. Next year, though, the devs have a whole slew of updates planned that are collectively going under the title of "Beyond," and one of the first things that will be introduced are new co-op missions.

It's officially the spookiest month of the year and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is getting in the spirit with "Willard Wyler's Halloween Scream."

Though the weather may indicate otherwise, we’re thick in the middle of fall. Fall: that mystical time of year famous for pumpkin-spiced food, horror flicks, and MMO content patches and expansions. For this issue of MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be looking at content expansions that either just launched on their corresponding live servers...

Our Weekend In Gaming: Combat Golf

Well, it's the gosh darn weekend already.  How about that?  The Co-Opticrew has mostly escaped Bungie's grasp for the time being, but we're all still in the throes of Sequel Town.  We're gonna have to churn through our follow-ups of choice, though, as release season is already getting hot and heavy.  Don't be surprised if, one month from now, our weekend plans are replaced by desperate gurgles as we attempt to not drown in a sea of new video games.
