Famitsu Ad Spoils Resident Evil 5 Character Death

The upcoming Resident Evil game looks to have a prominent character in the series kick the bucket.  Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has run an ad for Resident Evil 5, call Biohazard in Japan, featuring the details.  We aren't going to spoil it for you, but the above picture features the character's name.  Of course, this could just be a cruel trick on Capcom's part, or perhaps it's somehow integrated into the story.  Maybe the goal of the game is to use the Umbrella virus to bring this charcter back to life?

Winterize your NXE with Themes, Clothes and a SnowGlobe - More Accessories Soon

I spy with my little eye a BAPenguin avatar!  Can you see it?  The Good Major has brought word that Xbox 360 owners can download a neat and free app called the SnowGlobe which puts your friends list inside a..uh...snow globe.  Watch as the helplessly try to get out of your maniacal trap; tapping on the glass, screaming for help, and desperately gasping for air.  Ok, so I made that last part up, but you can shake it and watch it snow.  White X360-Mas indeed.

New 4 Player TMNT Title Announced... Can Co-Op Be Far Behind?

Here at Co-Optimus, we look back fondly on the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games.  TMNT IV: Turtles in Time is one of my favorite co-op experiences ever, as you'll recall from our coverage in Co-Op Classics.  If you look at the last few Turtles games, though, the experience was... not so great.  Most of the Turtles titles I've played recently were either single player (the horror) or just mind numbingly repetitive.

Lord of the Rings: Conquest - Positive Achievement News!

The other day, we posted a news story where we reported that Lord of the Rings: Conquest only had one Co-Op achievement.  Sad news, to be sure!  Luckily, our good friends at Pandemic sent along the official, complete list of both Achievements and Trophies, along with the clarification that any and all achievements related to the campaign are able to be earned in cooperative play by both players!

Call of Duty: World at War is Missing Save Option in Split Screen Co-Op...We're Not Amused

When Call of Duty: World at War was announced to have a four player co-op mode as well as split screen play, we were all pretty happy.  Then the Zombie mode was announced and we jigged with excitement.  Finally a Call of Duty game with co-op!   And even though we reviewed the game fairly positively there are some glowing problems, specifically with the split screen mode.

Father of the Co-Op Shooters, Doom Turns 15

Fifteen years ago a legend was released upon PCs.  I still remember the day my father brought home the shareware disks from a guy at work.  DOOM.  It was gory, it was dark, it was intense and it was 3d!  It was my excuse to buy a 14.4 modem.  Why?  It had co-op.
