Rock Band 2 for Wii Barely Makes Christmas Deadline

Xbox 360 and PS3 owners have been enjoying the new songs, improved instruments, and added features of Rock Band 2 for over two months now.  To this point, Wii and PS2 rockers have been left out.  We have a bit of good news for half that group, namely the Wii owners.  The Wii version of Rock Band 2 will be shipping on December 18th, which means if you're lucky, you can be playing it on Christmas Day.  The Rock Band Forums have the official news, coming from Harmonix themselves.

Great Features in Co-Op Gaming: Online Co-Op

 In many ways, co-op gaming is going through a sort of renaissance. The past few years have been a rebirth for co-op and 2007/2008 could be considered “Co-Op Year.” With most systems having several AAA titles featuring co-op (including Halo 3, Resistance 2, etc.). However, many would say that this renaissance of co-op gaming could not have happened without online co-op. This is because the rebirth of co-op seems to have coincided with the rise of online co-op.

Spike 2008 VGA Winners

Last night was the Spike TV Video Game Awards, or the VGAs.  And while the spectacle was about gaming, the focus tends to be on the hollywood glamour and glitz of celebs attending.  Hosted by Jack Black the entire thing was a mildly entertaining experience.  The highlights for me personally were trailers for Mafia 2 and Uncharted 2.

Prototype Co-Op Officially Done. Forever. For Good. Fin.

I remember when they announced the co-op mode of Prototype was cancelled.  They left us with a glimmer of hope, hope that perhaps they would come to their senses and add back in some sort of cooperative mode.  We all had visions of Crackdown in our heads, and despite a possibility of a sequel, this was as close as we were going to get.  But now a recent 1UP interview with Radical Entertainment's Chris Ansell, well it looks like there's no chance in hell.
