Quick! Stop reading and go check out the sale on Xbox Live. An impressive number of co-op games are discounted from 50% to 75% off, including some well-liked indie titles and a handful of big-name games.
The obvious recommendations below are Gears of War and the Halo games. Because, duh, right? Charlie Murder is also worth a look, especially at that steep of a discount. Inspired by River City Ransom and bearing some resemblance to a grunge version of Scott Pilgrim, Charlie Murder is a brawler that revolves around the metal band trying to put a stop to evil activities carried out by rival band Gore Quaffer. Hard to say no, right?
And then there's BattleBlock Theater, a co-op game released by Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth. It's a platform game that encourages you to kill your playing partners to progress, but you do it cooperatively, so it's totally ok. We loved it in our review, and you will, too.
