A while back, we wrote an article detailing the Co-Op games listed on Steam, but that was before Valve announced they would begin hosting popular user mods and total conversions on the service. As chance would have it, a pair of co-op enabled mods have appeared in the games list!
So here's the thing, despite having some of the hottest box art to date, the original Left 4 Dead box was missing something (besides a thumb). You see, the hand displayed was actually the right hand, not the left. Missing the obvious pun, the zombie artists have corrected their mistake with a new and improved box.
It's Friday, and that can only mean one thing - HUD time! This week on the GameDaily HUD we are joined by special guest Dan Hsu, former Editor-in-Chief of EGM. What questions could the evil powers at be have for us? Here they are in a very particular order.
We've all been there. You co-op halfway through a game with one person, only to finish the second half with another. Usually it's no big deal, sure you feel guilty but they'll get over it. But what if the co-oper you cheated on lives with you? Worse yet what if they are your significant other?
Gears of War is the perennial champion of co-op games in our database, with an impressive rating of 4.3 stars, with 95 votes. Even by another name, it would still be sweet. It's understandable, then, that news of the upcoming sequel is to us, like a light breaking through yonder window. First off, scans of the manual have popped up, full of the stuff that dreams are made on. There's not a lot of new info here, but still, seeing an entire section about chainsaw duels has us thinking such thoughts as would make one get to a nunnery.
A friendly fellow over at 1UP named Philip Kollar has told a beautiful story. It's a tale of the birth of a beautiful butterfly, and the tale of hideous zombies. These zombies of course are from Resident Evil 5, and these butterflies are actually issues of EGM. Strange, I know, right?
Merely seeing the words Red Alert kicks off the Hell March theme in my head. Red Alert 2 has always been one of my all time favorite RTS titles. When I heard Electronic Arts was creating a sequel, I was a giddy as a little girl. When I heard the sequel would be completely designed around cooperative play...my panties exploded.
Left 4 Dead is rushing (or shambling, considering the game's content) towards its November 17th release date. So, it seems only natural that more details for the game's upcoming demo (set to be released before the game comes out) have been discovered. IGN has recieved details from Doug Lombardi himself, who said the demo will take place:
How did we miss this? Blame IGN's new layout, but an impromptu-style article showcasing a hands-on co-op experience has slipped through the cracks. Luckily, Co-optimus is here to crawl under the floorboards to bring the overlooked snippets to your attention.
Ok, there's actually not any Gears of War themed lingerie, and for that I'm glad. But we do have a lot of other Gears of War 2 related news.
