With the Left 4 Dead demo in many people's hands already, and availability expanding to everyone this week, the folks at the British Gaming Blog have put together a survival guide for Valve's 4 player co-op shooter.
In a surprising but pleasant twist to the usual video game marketing story, Activision has partnered with the United Service Organization to connect members of the United States Armed Forces with civilian gamers via Call of Duty: World at War and Guitar Hero III. The idea of the project is to boost moral, a mission that the USO was f...
It was an eventful week in America. We now know who our next president will be, and you know what that means? No more friggin political commercials. Thank Billy! On the gaming front there was a few interesting tidbits out there, as there's still a few AAA titles on the horizon before Black Friday in the US.
The whole HUD crew is back together again, and to celebrate the format is switched up a little bit. How so? Well we've still got 4 questions, but we've made them a little more "opinionated." Curious?
Sometimes it's cool to be a Halo fan, because let's face it: you're in the majority. Other times, however, it ends up feeling just...dirty. Not a guilty kind of dirty; more like a whoa, hey, who's touching me from behind dirty. This post has a dual purpose, I suppose. On the one hand, it's an announcement of sorts -- on the other, i...
In case you've been hiding under a rock the past few days, and haven't checked out our banner, we're a little bit excited about the release of Gears of War 2 today. In keeping with the theme, then, I decided to go with a classic that was similar in tone to Gears 2. Perusing the list of classics in our database, I found Rush'n Attack. I'm sure there are closer matches to Gears of War, but both games feature macho soldiers, a variety of weapons, and, well, war. I downloaded the demo off of Xbox Live Arcade, and tried it out for a bit. That experience is the focus of Co-Op Classics this week.
If you pre-ordered Left 4 Dead from Gamestop or Steam, you should have gotten a demo code by now. If you didn't get one yet, you might need to fire off a few nastygrams. If you did get the demo, make sure you let us know how it is! I've yet to fire it up, as I'm knee deep in about 4 million other titles. F*ck you Fall Gaming Season.
If you were having trouble getting your gooooooolden lancer code to work, included with your launch copy of Gears of War 2 - you weren't alone. If you didn't get a code at all, well you are still SOL. Lucky, lancerless folks have a fix, and it's a simple one.
The PC version of Sacred 2 may have a 16 player co-op mode, and a 4 player co-op story mode - but that doesn't necessarily mean at your next LAN party you'll need 16 copies.
Gears mania has definitely hit here at Co-Optimus, but GoW2 certainly wasn't the only huge release of the week. AAA title Resistance 2 debuted this past Tuesday, and IGN's review is already up. You'll recall the game features an 8-player co-op mode, which is above and beyond most games of this type.
