While the world remains on a competitive stage, the Co-Optimus community would rather remain working together. A lot of folks are still working on their back log, while others are on the go for summer travels, bringing their iPads or phones for their gaming fix. A few new releases are on our schedules too, Orcs Must Die 2 and A Virus Named TOM are both excellent co-op games released this past week after a 6 week drought.
Also - this is your weekly reminder to download (rate and purchase too) SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance on Xbox Live Indie Games. Do it...because if you don't, alien babies will die a cruel death.
Nick "bapenguin" Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Once again I'll be attempting to finish up Mass Effect 3 and hopefully wrapping up Xbox Patch 1 and a PC Beta for SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance."
Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill (@cubninja) - "I'll be creeping my way through Deadlight, popping heads in Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, and making my way through the Dahl Headlands of Borderlands for over the dozenth time. I may get in some Sniper Elite V2 or trek through act four of Diablo 3, as well. "
Mike "Pheriannath" Katsufrakis (@Pheriannath) - "I have a pretty busy weekend lined up, but I'm absolutely loving Orcs Must Die 2. Hopefully I'll be able to wrangle a co-op partner."
Marc "DjinniMan" Allie (@DjinniMan) - "I will be on the go most of the weekend, so I'll be iPad gaming it, playing Magic 2013 and my new guilty pleasure: Jurassic Park Builder, AKA Farmville with Dinos."
Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love (@JLove55) - "I'll be playing some more The Secret World and A Virus Named TOM as I attempt to dethrone as many of the game dev's high scores as possible."

Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "I'll probably be picking something from the myriad of games I picked up on the Steam Summer Sale. This means some combination of Max Payne 3, Age of Empires 3, Civ 5, and Darksiders."
Chris "The Lemko" Metz (@The_Lemko) - "I'll be working on going through Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP on my phone and possibly some Plants vs Zombies co-op with my little brother."
