Koei, developers of the moderately fun and forever-ongoing series Dynasty Warriors, is once again bringing third-person hack'n'slash co-op action to the Playstation Portable with Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce.
The news just keeps on rolling in today. Between the Tokyo Game Show and this weekend's BlizzCon, it's a busy time for those craving gaming information! According to the BlizzCon program guide, some new Diablo III information will be revealed today. The biggest news is the hint of a "new champion" who will join the Witch Doctor and the Barbarian, previously announced. As soon as the news hits, we'll let you know. Personally, I am pulling for the Rainbrow Brite class, though I'm not sure that would translate well into a male version. (Gotta love that mount, though!) In any event, check back later today for the actual announcement!
Gooooooooooooooooooooold. Smoke and a pancake? CoG and a Lancer? Yes folks Gears of War 2 has gone gold. The sequel to the highest rated co-op game on this site will hit store shelves on November 7th. Perhaps you and your co-op partner should start training now, we have the perfect way to start, with our Gears of War Co-Op Night!
This week has been a busy one for me. That's part of the reason why This Week in Co-Op is a day late. However, I hope that I can make it up to you all. I think I might be able to, because I've been spending the week playing a game that most all gamers can agree is either cool, or at least features a cool character. The game in question is Duke Nukem 3D on XBLA,.
I think that the title of this post is pretty much self-explanatory. Just the same, though, here's the official word from Sam, Lionhead community blogger:
Hot on the heels of yesterday's Little Big Planet news, a couple more new Sackboys have been revealed. Solid Snake of Metal Gear fame, and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII will be reresented in Sackboy form. You've gotta love these guys! Taking popular video game characters and making little burlap sack versions of them seems simple, yet they are certainly fun. No details about how to get these little fellows are given, but you can see some higehr res pictures here. I'm wondering who's next? Sackboy Optimus Prime, I hope...
We're not sure if the 4 player co-op mode is what makes this game extreme, but we do know we are extremely excited about this classic remake. If you played the game on the PSP or DS then you know this game is a great remix of Space Invaders with a splash of a game like Lumines. Pulsating visuals with a thumping beat make blasting pixelated aliens an absolute joy. Add in giant boss battles and that's Space Invaders Extreme.
I've always been a huge fan of Arkanoid. I'm sure you know the game, it's the one with the paddle at the bottom and the ball that bounces taking out blocks above. It's a classic game since the dawn of gaming and thanks to Taito it's getting an upgrade including 2 player co-op.
If you haven't heard, the Xbox 360 Dashboard is getting a complete overhaul this fall. Just announced last night during the Tokyo Game Show Keynote the new dashboard will be released world wide on November 19th.
Quick, everyone check your co-op partner. I think we lost a man. A CoG tag has mysteriously shown up at Co-Optimus Headquarters which can only mean one thing, there's a fallen soldier somewhere.
