The Dynasty Warriors Gundam series is quite interesting. Obviously, Gundam is a nice game friendly franchise, with giant robots (not really giant robots, but still, GIANT ROBOT-LIKE SUITS, awesome) and lots of drama. Dynasty Warriors is one of the longest running co-op friendly series. The two meet and much fun can be had; I've enjoyed playing the first Dynasty Warriors Gundam over the past few weeks.
They may try to move quietly, and the monster might be "pretty small" but I'd still bring some heavy weapons. Perhaps it's the giant glowing eyes 25 feet in the air that does it to me, but I think they are going to need more than some rope.

To do something a little different here at Co-Optimus, we decided to go back and review one of our favorite co-op games. We have two perspectives for you too. Jim is a newcomer to Crackdown, having never played it. Nick on the other hand gives his perspective after two years with the game. Does it stand the test of time? Is it still a game for newcomers? Find out in our review.
Star trek D-A-C hit XBLA, PSN, and PC this week, featuring cool co-op outer space battles. I've not had time to sit down with it yet, but I have to say the graphics, at least, look spectacular.
See this screenshot? This is one of the more artistic captured moments from my gallery; it was taken near the beginning of "The Ark" on Halo 3. I was playing the campaign in co-op, and this bad-to-the-bone ODST Marine was playing it smart while we were being slaughtered mercilessly by Grunts.
At the start of 2009, our politics tag was fastened to a great many news posts here at Co-Optimus, and the reason was a horrible rash of layoffs and closings.
Arkanoid Live was release last week on the Xbox Live Arcade with a slick new co-op mode. Most gamers seemed pretty happy with their purchase until they reached level 62, or the end of Episode 2. Why? At that point the game asks if you'd like to play Episode 3 and 4 you'll need to pony up an additional 400 , that is, after spending 800 already on the game.
Microsoft has announced a fresh batch of their platinum hits titles with very wallet friendly pricing. Most titles will set you back $19.99, while a few still hover around the $29.99 mark. There's also some fancy smancy new packaging available for these titles, so it's easy to distinguish between the normal priced titles and these.
