We sure do love our contests around here. So with that I present to you the latest contest from Co-Optimus.com. Last week Assault Heroes 2 was released for the Xbox Live Arcade. The game is a top down shooter featuring 2 player co-op play via Xbox Live.
The 'Lost in Blue' games have had some success on the Nintendo DS. This fall, the survival adventure series will make the jump from handheld to home console with 'Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked" for the Wii. The game sounds like a mix of Survivor, Lost, and the Harvest Moon titles. Players are stranded on a mysterious island, and must learn how to survive. The Wii remote will be used for all sorts of survival related tasks, such as making weapons, and constructing a shelter.

We know that the game will support another player in a drop in/drop out fashion on the same console. We know that this player can have an incredible effect on your game world - killing loved ones for example.
Too Human has been quite the popular game in the past few days. We've had an interview with Denis Dyack, some great screenshots, and a nice co-op vid.
