Co-Op gaming is usually an incredible experience. There's nothing quite like being in the moment, communicating with you teammates.
Spider-man has had a long and generally successful video game career. Spider-man for the Atari 2600 was an early game based on the web-slinger, and it was quite fun and addicting for the time. A whole slew of Spidey games followed, for a large variety of game systems. The Amiga, PC, NES, Game Gear, Game Boy, Genesis, Super Nintendo, and more all had multiple titles, of varying quality. With the explosion of Spider-man's popularity after the movies, the wise cracking webhead hit the previous generation of consoles, culminating in what in my opinion, is the finest Spider-man game to date, Spider-man 2.
It's awfully quiet around Co-Optimus HQ...where did everyone go?
The final vidoc for Halo Wars has been released (Others: 1, 2, and 3) and this time the video focuses on different gameplay modes, including co-op as well as different tactics. There's even talk of some interesting tactics players can do in co-op. For instance, one player is able to manage the economy and just pump money into the other player while the main player focuses on combat. But really...where's the fun in that?
The Armored Core series has been around for a while now. And when you combine mechs with cooperative play you have a sure-fire winner on your hands right? We examine that question in our Armored Core for Answer review on the Xbox 360.
You'll recall that the PC version of Left 4 Dead was on sale for 50% off last weekend. Curious as to how that went for Valve? Check out this quote from Valve's Gabe Newell, who spoke at the recent DICE conference.
Capcom has released a brand new 3 minute Hollywood style trailer for their upcoming 2 player co-op survival horror game Resident Evil 5. With less than a month to go till the game's launch, you are gonna see the PR step up on this title, and despite some initial gripes, I'm still looking forward to this one very much.
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is the sequel to a classic PC title from developer Codemasters. The game is going to feature an epic, non linear, single and multiplayer campaign. It's unclear yet just how many co-op players will be able to play in this realistic military shooter.
I'm pretty sure CDV is very proud of their upcoming console port of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel. Every couple of days we get a new batch of gorgeous screenshots for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 four player co-op title.
Capcom is announcing a new downloadable game on Monday, and the only place you'll get to see the trailer is on Xbox Live. Of course with any new game announcement, we hope this means co-op! With previous titles like Wolf of the Battlefield and 1942: Joint Strike, their track record has been pretty good for the arcade titles.
