This week we're featuring another Co-Op Couples submission, this time from guest writer Ethan Kaye . Ethan helps us revisit Castle Crashers , Xbox Live's 2009 Live Arcade Game of the Year, as well as some other favorite co-op titles. Read on for a musing romp through the living room of a friendly new Co-Op Couple...
It appears as though the four player co-op Borderlands has gone from a realistic rendering look to a more artistic cell shaded technique. The shot above shows a comparison between Borderlands new cell shaded look (left) and the old look (right). The change is of course, controversial, it is the Internet after all. A Gearbox employee on the official forums has addressed the issue, confirming the game has undergone a graphical overhaul.
If you were a fan of Hellgate: London (not many were) - then you were probably looking forward to a re-launch of the game in West by the IP owner Hanbitsoft. The co-op friendly game requires official servers to play on, despite it not quite being an MMO. So what's the hold up? Namco Bandai, who owns the rights to the game, is refusing to let it relaunch.
If I go out and buy a Microsoft points card, one that I will use to purchase Xbox arcade games, there are set amounts that I am required to buy. For instance, if I would like an 800 game, which is equivalent to $10, I am required to buy at least a $20, 1600 card. Or, I could go for a 400 game, with the same point purchase requirement. Along with Xbox DLC, this leaves me with a perpetual balance, that I may, or may not ever fully drain.
I know what you're thinking: "How are any of the Phoenix Wright games Co-op in any way?" Well, I'm here to share a slightly different co-op adventure. One teaching an absolute non-gamer computer illiterate, how to play Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, with a little help, co-op if you will, from my sister. That's right, I spent an afternoon teaching my mother how to play DS.
"Being a Wii owner and an Indiana Jones fan, I am buying Staff of Kings. But I'm not proud of it."
MTV Games and Performance Design Products have announced the officially licensed double bass pedal with adapter for Rock Band and Rock Band 2. The new pedal comes with an adapater that allows players to use two kick pedals at once for a more realistic drumming experience. Come on...all the cool drummers are doing it.
We've been covering it for weeks, but FLOCK! is finally here. The two player co-op game from Capcom has players controlling UFOs gathering up heards of animals into the Mother Flocker.
