Co-Op Classics: Altered Beast

As promised in our last column, we'll take a look at Sega's Altered Beast this week.  First gaining fame as an arcade hit, Altered Beast eventually got released for the Sega's classic Genesis system.  Back before Sonic (it's hard to remember back that far, isn't it?), Altered Beast was the pack-in game for the Genesis.  You'd better hope you sprang for the extra controller, because Altered Beast was a co-op fan's dream.

Ghostbusters, 50 Cent Games to Be Sold Off?

We've been covering the development of Ghostbusters and 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand for quite some time.  Ghostbusters keeps losing features left and right, and 50 Cent looks a bit derivative, to put it nicely.  Perhaps we should have seen the writing on the wall, as it looks like both games might be sold off!  MCV reports that Activision Blizzard, taking over for Vivendi, may not release the games at all, and is "reviewing its options regarding titles that it will not be publishing.”  In other words, maybe they can sell them to cover their losses.  Other Vivendi titles like Crash and Spyro will be released, according to the report.  Personally, the loss of 50 Cent doesn't bother me much, but I know others were looking forward to it.  Perhaps Ghostbusters will get snagged by someone else who will put the co-op back in story mode, which SHOULD have been a no-brainer.  Maybe we should take up a collection and buy it!  Let's all pitch in... oh, I dunno, say... 50 Cents? *rim shot*

Resident Evil 5 to Receive Gears-like Controls

From IGN comes word that Resident Evil 5 is going to have a totally different control system that will be unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show in October.  This new control system is said, via game producer Jun Takeuchi at a recent Microsoft Media event, to be based around the Gears of War style of control.  Best guess would mean this will involve such things as a cover system and the ability to quickly move to another place with cover.
