Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 2.27.2012
It's a little slow this week. The only truly new co-op release is a third person shooter. I'll give you a couple hints, and you see if you can tell me where the game takes place. Hint #1: It's set in the future. Hint #2: Robots. Hint #3: Said future robots, or "frobots," as I like to call them, are becoming too human. Hint #4: It's not a Blade Runner game (you wish!).
Did you guess Detroit? Nah man, it's not Detroit. It's Japan -Tokyo, to be specific. Better luck next time.
Binary Domain (360, PS3) This squad-based shooter uses AI and voice commands for the single player campaign. So players are forced to use AI in a game whose tag line is; "Are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?" I'm sure I could use the word "meta" here, but I'm not going to. Four human players can team up and take on waves of enemies in the Invasion mode. 4 player online co-op.
