Call of Duty: World at War 3D Screenshot Released

Strictly speaking, as a co-op centered web site, we should focus as much as we can on the co-op aspect of games that have some form of co-op. Sounds simple enough, right? I mean, yes the odd detail about new costumes or added modes is nice, but the focus of the site should be all co-op all the time.

Battle.net 2.0 Features: It Slices, Dices, and Juliennes

Creatures of the night and rainbow lovers everywhere are all looking forward to the release of Diablo III.  You also might be anticipating another Blizzard title, a sequel to the largely unknown and very obscure title StarCraft.  As you might expect, then, the online backbone supporting both games, Battle.net, will be getting an overhaul soon.  The new features of Battle.net 2.0 sound fantastic.  DIII.net has some of the details, among which are ingame channels and voice chat, ladders secured against cheating, automatic tournaments, and achievements, similar to those in WoW.  In a move sure to cause many gamers to lose jobs, spouses, etc., a "Blizzard Level" system is also planned.

Co-Op with Rockstar Games in GTA IV This Weekend

Did you know developers are more popular than Hollywood celebrities?  The paparazzi that follows these folks around are INSANE.  Denis Dyack can't even poop without it being blogged about.  Ok, so I made that all up.  But developers are pretty cool dudes, and they are all gamers at heart.  And even though Denis Dyack enjoys the luxury of a private bathroom, you did get to co-op Too Human with him last Friday night.   What's that?   You missed it?  Well I've got good news then, there's another co-op title available to play this weekend with its developers, Grand Theft Auto IV.

PixelJunk Eden Co-Op Review

The "PixelJunk" series of titles that have come out on the PlayStation Network have all been truly unique titles.  From a slot car racer, to a different take on desktop tower defense, both Racers and Monsters were solid games; the latter even supporting co-op play.

Grab Your Balance Board for Shaun White Snowboarding

So, you got Wii Fit.  You played it regularly, didn't you?  The Balance Board never collected dust in the closet, or behind the couch, at all.  You're probably looking trim and slim even as you view this news item.  What's that?  You didn't stick with it?  Dust bunnies the size of a small elephant are the only ones using the Board?  Yeah, me too.  It looks like that may change later this fall, perhaps.  Shaun White Snowboarding is coming soon for the Wii, and pretty much all the other platforms, too.  However, it's the Wii version that piqued my interest.  First of all, the game will support the Wii Balance Board.  That seems natural to me, since the skiing minigames were my favorite part of Wii Fit by far.  Of greater importance to Co-Optimus readers is this quote from IGN's preview:

Rock Band 2 Co-Op Night a Success - Winners

Well another Co-Op Night has come and gone, and this one was a total success.  Rock Band 2 works incredibly well online, and it was a piece of cake to get 4 players in on the musical action.  Our band, Billy and the Bots toured the country picking up a rickety old van, and hiring some staff including our mom and some creepy kid.  A lot of the staff even got to play together including Loren, Marc and myself - and my wife even joined in on the action picking up the vocals.  The ability to mix local playsers and online players seemlessly is a great feature, and Harmonix should be applauded for that!
