Co-Op Classics: Dungeons and Dragons Tower Of Doom

This week's Co-Op Classics features a couple of games that are near and dear to my heart.  I've been looking forward to writing about them for quite a while!  In my opinion, you will find no better examples of the four player co-operative beat 'em up than this series, especially the second title.  Grab some quarters, set down your soda, and pull up a chair, it just might be a long evening of crawling through the Dungeons and Dragons arcade game series!

Create Your Own Winter Wonderland in Viva Pinata 2

It may have been lost in all the fall release shuffle, but you'll recall a nice little game called Viva Pinata: Trouble In Paradise.  As we stated in our review, it's the perfect sequel to a fantastic game, and greatly benefits from the addition of co-op, both online and even local.  One of the new features in VP2 was the availability of snow for your garden.  Why not use that to make your garden the perfect Winter Wonderland?  Here are some tips, straight from Rare.

3D Realms Gifts New Duke Nukem Forever Screen...and Pleather Girls
