Not to be outdone by the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 version of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel has released their own on the unsuspecting masses. We've got girls with metal wings, dogs with metal heads, and plenty of bright effects that reflect off metal.
It's an action packed X rated episode of the Co-Opticast. Don't worry, we're still kid friendly.
Insomniac has just released a new patch for the 8 player co-op shooter Resistance 2. The patch is version 1.40 and it should be available by the time you read this. What does it fix? Lots of stuff, but the most important being the restoration of any character resets you may have had. Some folks have reported issues with level progression and found their character data reset to level 1. The good news is this patch should not only restore your previous character state, but tack on any progression you've gained since. So your level 20 medic for co-op that should have been a level 40 medic will really be a level 40! Very nice!
Every once and a while a trailer comes along that simply sells you on a game. We've preached and said it before on here - we hear good things about the latest 50 Cent game. Now...we've seen good things.

Callling in sick today? Perhaps you want to. And maybe you should call a friend and have him do the same. The Resident Evil 5 demo is now available on Xbox Live. The demo features two full levels, all featuring 2 player co-op with drop-in/drop-out support. Co-Op can be done either split-screen or via Xbox Live.
No, nobody got married on the Co-Opticast. Your regular hosts Nick and Mike are both already married, and I don't mean to each other. Nick and Mike did appear on Episode 83 of The Married Gamers Podcast, hosted by Chris and Kelly. The podcast takes a slightly unique approach to video game podcasts getting both the male and female perspective from a married couple.
Windows Vista got a pretty bad rap of being a poor gaming operating system. Probably rightly so as it was a bit of a resource hog. Microsoft hopes to correct this with Windows 7, which really, is a very streamlined version of Vista.
Pardon the lateness of this week's beyond co-op column. Things are a bit hectic around Co-Optimus HQ. I think our espresso machine is on the fritz.
