Modern Warfare for the Wii Gets Co-Op... Barely

Poor, poor Wii gamers.  There's much to love about Nintendo's system, but when it comes to multi-console franchises, the Wii just falls short (with a few notable exceptions).  The fabled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is headed to the Wii this fall, and it will be quite different from its brothers on more powerful consoles.  All is not lost, however; there will be co-op in Modern Warfare, which was lacking from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.  Great news, right?

Hey Hey! The Monk Joins Diablo III

The latest class for upcoming co-op blockbuster Diablo III has been revealed.  The Monk joins Barbarian, Witch Doctor, and Wizard to take down Diablo's minions.  Gotta love the nice nod to the monk class inclusion in the expansion for the first Diablo, Hellfire.  The monk is pretty good with a bo staff, so you might want one in your co-op gang.  Two more words: reflecting fireballs.  Woot!

Lost Planet 2 MAY Feature Couch Co-Op

Undoubtedly the most asked for feature on our site when a game is announced is "couch co-op."  Couch Co-Op or split screen co-op allows two or more players to play in the same room on the same console with one copy of the game.  It used to be the only way to play a co-op game until online modes came around, but thankfully it's not a complete lost art.

Co-Optimus Staffers On The Lost Planet 2 Demo

The Lost Planet 2 demo went up yesterday, and most of the Co-Optimus staff rushed home to play it as soon as possible.  Our impressions of the demo range from giddiness (me) to grumpiness (Mike) and everything in between.  We're interested to know: what are your thoughts on the demo?  Did it sell you a copy of the game?  Or save you $60?
