B.Y.O.B. Co-op

While we at Co-Optimus do not generally condone the act of competitive gaming, which, by definition allows you to dominate another player; there is a kind of co-op that does include domination, one we would like to paste a label on. This type of co-op can, if used correctly, be used against that game-hog sibling, spouse or significant other. Co-optimus would like to proudly introduce: B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Bitch) co-op gaming. We've looked at a few examples of games that created the B.Y.O.B. co-op genre, all the way back to the days of the Sega Genesis, and culminate the list with recent entries on systems like the Xbox 360 and Wii.

`Splosion Man Title Update is Live, Contest is Soon, PAX Goodies for Sale

If you're fixing for some Splodin, you might notice a title update when `Splosion Man fires up.  Great you're thinking, finally the avatar awards and fixed lag issues are taken care of.  Sorry, no awards here, no lag fix to see.  Instead the update fixes a leaderboard exploit and clears off some cheaters who abused it to get obscene high scores.  This might be why your co-op score pales in comparison to quite a few people out there.

Thinking of heading to Seattle this weekend for the Penny-Arcade Expo?  Don't have a ticket yet?  I'm sorry to inform you that you are out of luck then as the show is 100% completely SOLD OUT. For the first time ever the show, which takes place at the Washington State Convention Center, sold as many tickets as they were legally allowed to do fire restrictions and code BEFORE the show even started.
