Lord of the Rings: Conquest Trailer is Spiffy

Actually, spiffy may not be the right word.  You can check the trailer for Lord of the Rings: Conquest out for yourself here, and choose your own word to describe it.  The fact that four players can play through the campaign cooperatively via split-screen or online had us watching the title closely.  Given the fact that you can also play through as the bad guys?  That just puts it over the top.  Maiming hairy footed halflings with a buddy for an evening sounds like fun to me.  Hobbits, you are going down!

Sometimes, you just don't have the time to get knee deep in a game like Crackdown or GTA IV. That's where XBLA comes in handy.

Castle Crashers Gains Skeleton and Ninja

It's no secret that at Co-Optimus, we love us some Castle Crashers. In the past few days, the hard working team at The Behemoth have finished the game, and only the time-consuming process that is certification stands between us and some castle crashing. To tide us over, however, the Castle Crashers team has revealed a few more characters, two to be specific. The two characters in question are a bow and arrow wielding Skeleton and a sword (and mug) wielding Ninja. So hit up the Character section of the Castle Crashers site to see some great screens of two characters that are joining the eclectically awesome cast of Castle Crashers.

Call of Duty World at War Co-Op Details Emerge

While we already knew that Call of Duty: World at War would feature co-op play, what we didn't know was the details and the platforms it would be available on.  Activision has sent out an official press releasing with the information we've been craving.   The PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 versions of the game will all feature an online 4-player co-op mode, while the 360 and PS3 version will also feature a 2-player offline splitscreen mode.  If that wasn't cool enough in it's own right, we've learned that the co-op mode will feature the same addictive Perks System that made Call of Duty 4 so popular.

Guitar Hero World Tour Info Extravaganza

While there is a decent amount of information about Guitar Hero World Tour, the info has always come as a slow drip. Thankfully, IGN is providing a deluge of information on the game, which seems similar to Rock Band, but still is unique in its own right. While the game has similar instruments as Rock Band, it also has many new features, like its create-a-song feature. Of course the game focuses on teaming up with your buddies, but there is also a big focus on customization, like being able to make your avatar unique and "yours." So hit up the link to a four page preview of Activision's entry into the "rock band" genre.
