A Pair of LittleBigPlanet Updates Bring Welcomed Changes

"Aliens: Colonial Marines" Could be the Next "Left 4 Dead"

One of the most anticipated co-op titles next year is Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines.  With four player co-op play set in the traditional Aliens universe, it's easy to see how this could be the best thing since Left 4 Dead.   While we've had numerous Alien games before, none have offered co-op play and none have put players in the raw experience of an Aliens movie.  DailyGame.net explains it best:

Even Diablo Himself Has the Holiday Spirit

Even though Co-Optimus is a young site, we've been lucky enough to see a few holiday cards arrive at the HQ.  Today we got a card I just had to share with everyone.  Blizzard's card features original artwork by Sam "Samwise" Didier and showcases a cast of characters across all of their games.  Just look how Lord Diablo spreads the holiday cheer!  If that isn't co-op, I don't know what is!

Left 4K Dead Forgets the Most Important Feature, Still Fun

I get a kick out of low resolution pixel style graphic games, and the latest one I stumbled upon is no exception.  Called Left 4K Dead, the Java game takes up less than 4KB of memory yet still features some spiffy graphics.  As you might expect from the name, it's a play on our favorite co-op game around this neck of the woods, Left 4 Dead.

Guitar Hero Metallica Trailer Melts Your Face...Twice!

Better grab a welding mask, because your face is about to melt.  Activision has released the official trailer for Guitar Hero Metallica and it's not for the faint of heart.  No ma'am, this isn't your average party game.   Promising Metallica's "fiercest songs" I wouldn't expect this game to be for anyone other than the greatest of Guitar Heros.
