This week on Xbox Live Arcade we have what looks to be a unique co-op puzzle game called Gel: Set & Match. The game is from Gastronaut Studios, the same folks who made Small Arms, and is a successor to their Xbox 1 title called Fuzzee Fever.
Hot on the heels of, well, pretty much every other Guitar Hero release, comes news of Guitar Hero 5. The game was announced, to no one's surprise, just over a week ago and now we have the first details, including a couple screenshots showing off the new art style, and even some of the artists featured on the soundtrack.
It seems like all we do is post "deals" lately, but I guess in these tough economic times a lot of folks are interested in them. That being said you can get yourself a solid co-op game for half price this week on both the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in Bionic Commando: Rearmed. The game normally runs $10, or 800 but is on special for $4.99 or 400 .
The latest Terminator movie hits theaters this Friday, and that means the latest movie tie-in game also releases with Terminator: Salvation.
XSeed Games has announced a new three player cooperative title for the DS called Raganarok Online DS. If the name sounds familiar, it's because there's a PC MMO of the same name, minus the DS of course.
This month's Games for Windows Co-Op Night we go back to one of our favorites. Dawn of War 2 from developer Relic is an Action/RTS that puts players in the role of gritty space marines as they take on three different aliens in an epic battle for survival. The entire campaign is playable in co-op - and we have the perfect night to meet up with friends to do just that.
The Steam deal this weekend is a good one for co-op fans. Call of Duty World at War is on sale for 50% off the regular price, and will just set you back $24.99 until May 18th. Adding to the value, the first map pack is included, featuring the co-op zombie slaying mode "Verruckt".
