Punisher: No Mercy Co-Op Review

Not every Marvel property is a "super hero." In fact, certain characters in the Marvel Universe stand out amongst the usual colorful and powerful cast of characters like Spider-Man and Iron Man. The Punisher has always been about a dark and tragic tale, about a man who's life was ripped from him, therefore giving him nothing to lose. It's surprising that such a violent and dark setting hasn't yielded more video games. Alas, we've been left mostly barren of game's starring Frank Castle. Punisher: No Mercy is a downloadable game for the PlayStation Network built by Zen Studios - but is it better than nothing?

Battlefield 1943 Co-Op Challenge Complete: 43 Million Kills - Our Impressions

Last month we told you about a different kind of cooperative effort with EA's Battlefield: 1943.  It was called the "Coral Challenge" and the goal of it was to collectively earn 43 million kills in the game between the two platforms to unlock a new map and game mode.  I'm happy to report that it's mission accomplished, as of this morning the game eclipsed the 43 million kill mark in just under 5 days.

Co-op In Metroidvania Style Games? Not Yet...

How many times have you sat down with a Metroid style puzzle and thought "I could really use a hand with this." Or, "wouldn't it be cool if there were co-op exploration here?" What about tackling a Castlevania monster, wondering "What if I attacked its legs, and my buddy climbed the beast to puncture its brain?" Shadow Complex, a "Metroidvania" style game, gave us hope that we'd see some co-op like this.

Trine Co-Op Review

It's been a long time since I have played a platformer that has entertained me as much as Trine. In fact, I'll go ahead and say this up front: If you for some unfathomable reason do not fall completely head over heels in love with this game within the first ten minutes, there might be something wrong with your brain. I'd go get that checked out. For purposes of keeping the game as fresh as possible, I will try to avoid spitting out too many examples of how to solve puzzles.

G.I. Joe Screenshots Help You Know the Battle

Every summer, movie studios pour millions of dollars into advertising budgets to promote theatrical releases of their biggest films.  These films are called Summer Blockbusters.  Just about every year we see tie-in games that closely follow the movie's story or borrow liberally from the movie's universe.  For the most part these tie-in titles are low budget, mediocre games that rarely excel to greatness.
