Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer Provides Co-Op Side Scrolling Action, Tongue Twisters

While top down shooters seem to be a dime a dozen these days, fans of side scrolling shooters like the classic game Gradius or the more recent Omega 5 haven't been so lucky.  Enter Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer.  I can't even begin to understand how to pronounce that, but my guess is it sounds something like saying Soldier Him Less Storm with a mouth full of bratwurst and beer.

"Make Your Own Sackboy" Contest Announced for LittleBigPlanet

Maybe a few of you have heard of LittleBigPlanet. We've covered the game quite a few times, and the game looks like a unique take on the idea of co-op. The game's all about customization and building things as a team, so it's unsurprising that Media Molecule (the dev team behind LBP) is doing all it can to get the fans involved. This time, they're holding a contest to create a skin for SackBoy, the main character of LittleBigPlanet.

Castle Crashers DLC On the Way, Patch Still Coming Too

If you read our Castle Crashers Review, and have been following the game's release, you know things haven't exactly been smooth.  The good news is, they are working on a fix, but you already knew that.   If you followed the game as closely as we did before launch, you may have noticed a few characters and weapons were missing.  Where is the Chainsaw?  What about the Necromancer?  What about the King?

Castle Crashers Co-Op Review

Castle Crashers has finally arrived, and we couldn't be happier.  Is the game worthwhile?  Do the network issues break the deal?  Or does the appeal of hilarious hacking and slashing knights swinging swords and slinging spells overcome these obstacles?  Read our review to find out!

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*
