Co-Op Classics: Legendary Wings

I'm going to change the formula a bit for Co-Op Classics today.  Typically, the focus is on the game itself.  But as with all things classic, nostalgia and memory play an important part.  Legendary Wings for the NES is a bizarre game, and would have been notable for it's sheer weirdness, but when I consider the circumstances of my first experience with it, the game transcends the merely weird and becomes truly legendary.  Read on to find out what I could possibly mean. It was the summer of 1988.  I was 14 years old, and a burgeoning gamer.  My parents had disappointed me with a replacement Atari 2600 (though admittedly the cooler version ) for Christmas the previous year, though I'd been wanting an NES.  Luckily for me, I was going to spend the day with my older cousin, who was 17, could drive and had a Nintendo.  As soon as I arrived at his house, he decided we'd go rent a game.

Resident Evil 5 Controls Freak People Out

If you've checked out the recently released demo for Resident Evil 5, you've probably encountered the charming gentleman featured in the screenshot above.  You've also probably died horribly because the controls are a bit wonky, and seem, well, old school, to put it nicely.  (For that matter, what's with not being able to skip cut scenes?  That seems so 2003.)  Friend, you are not alone, just ask the MTV Multiplayer Blog.

Halo Wars Documentary Video Features Halo, War

I realize I am late to the party, but I just beat Halo 3 in co-op mode.  Imagine my surprise, then, when I checked the official Co-Optimus news queue and lo and behold, there's a new video for the next Halo game, Halo Wars.  The video features lots of gameplay, along with a few well done cut scenes, no stranger to the Halo saga.  The developers offer their perspective on what makes Halo Wars different from the typical RTS, and some choice bits about translating one of the premiere FPS series into RTS form.
