Gears of War 2 Copies Missing Map Pack Codes?

It looks like Microsoft might need to find a new packaging and distribution company.  Much like Fable 2 before it, it appears as though the bonus codes for downloadable content that was supposed to be included with Gears of War 2 are missing for some folks.  According to some posts on the official Epic Forums, people with copies in hand are already seeing this problem.  While the game doesn't officially hit the retail streets until tonight, a lot of folks have managed to get a copy early via a certain online retailers as well as a certain Slushi selling mini-mart.

This Week in Co-Op: Gears of War

Well, after a two week hiatus, This Week in Co-Op is back. Since Gears of War 2 has been quite the popular game recently, I decided to play the original Gears of War. Gears 2 has received pretty good reviews, much like it's predecessor. Also, (unsurprisingly) Gears of War 2 is much like it's predecessor as far as gameplay goes, though there are some fun additions (Horde Mode, enough said). So, with all this in mind, I decided to play the original Gears of War in order to see why Gears 2 has captured my attention so much.

Here's Another Red Alert 3 Celebrity Endorsement

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 is most notable here at Co-Optimus for its tightly integrated co-op campaign, but you must admit the celebrity involvement is unique, as well.  Well known actors like Tim Curry, George Takei, and even Jenny McCarthy play characters in the game.  However, even a Playmate, Star Trek's Mr. Sulu and Rocky Horror's Dr. Frank N. Furter can't hold a candle to the incredible brilliance that is David Hasslehoff.  You heard that right, the Hoff.  He's driven a sweet talking car, jogged in slow motion on a beach, and now he's featured in an over-the-top website promoting Red Alert 3, Conquer This Life.  It's totally bizarre, done in infomercial style, and includes some hilarious bits like "Dolphin vs. Bear" and "It's Braintastic".  The site is definitely worth checking out, for the sheer crazyness factor alone.

Beatles Music Game Coming From Rock Band Creators

Aerosmith?  AC/DC?  Metallica?  These are big bands, for sure, but it appears the biggest band of all is coming to a video game console near you.  Harmonix and MTV Games, of Rock Band fame, are making an all new game based on the Beatles.  This is no mere Track Pack, though; instead, it's an entirely new game, described as "a musical and visual journey through the Beatles' entire career."  (Yellow Submarine minigames, perhaps?)
