Boy, do we have a multiplayer preview for you. Walk with us now, as we explore Demon Souls - the PS3 exclusive intense dungeon crawler, set to hit shelves just in time for Halloween complete with co-op. Well, maybe complete is a strong word, the co-op in Demon Souls is much different than you'd expect in a dungeon crawler. No Leroy Jenkins action. No loot splitting.

Even though I only recently (i.e., within the past year) bought a 360, the latest game in the Halo series wasn’t one that I just had to get hold of right away. I actually avoided it for as long as possible for a variety of reasons, but a certain someone, along with the price tag that comes with a game that’s close to two years old, convinced me that it was probably time to finally see what folks have been talking about. Buckle up tight, folks: this week in co-op, we take a day trip to New Mombasa.

We had played this game initially all the way back in February at the NY Comic-Con, but seven months later the rest of the world will be able to issue some kung fu action to a ninja's face, all with the help of a buddy.
It's been hot in these late summer days at the Co-Optimus HQ, so join us as we take a dip in the local turtle aquarium and discuss the past 14 days' worth of co-op news. We discuss this fall's upcoming releases, Nick lets us know just what's up with the co-op in Madden NFL '10 and a special 'guest' tells you what you need to do once you've listened.
PlayStation Blog's resident grunge Chris Morell spoke with Capcom's Chris Kramer about the PlayStation 3 version of Lost Planet 2 in an exclusive GamesCom interview; Capcom is adamant in making sure you understand that this release will be at the extreme opposite end of the spectrum from the lackluster Lost Planet PlayStation 3 release last year.
