This Week in Co-Op: Rock Band

Rock Band might very well be the best co-op game available today. There, I said it. I wanted to avoid all possible hyperbole, but the fact is that my previous statement could be true. As I discovered this week, Rock Band has some serious co-op chops.

A Title to Feature ONLY Online Co-Op: Raven Squad

This just in from the "Eh?" department...  The rather generic yet still annoyingly long-titled 'Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger' is coming soon to your Xbox.  Almost nothing is known about the game, save that it was a FPS, then a RTS, and now is a FPSRTS hybrid.  (Anyone got a spoon for that alphabet soup?)  XBox360Fanboy tells us that the first reports told of no support for Live at all!  Perhaps someone got smart and decided that if you are going to make a generic sounding game it better have some support for this generation's best feature: you know, the INTURWEB.  Al Gore would be happy to see that Live support was added in, and co-op to boot, which also means we'll actually follow this game here at Co-Optimus!

You Got Alien Hominid in My Castle Crashers!

Ah, Castle Crashers. Is there anything else that I can say about you in a glowing manner? We've covered the game for the longest time, and now there is the light at the end of the tunnel, i.e. a release date. So why am I excited about the game now? Well, it looks like another well-liked Behemoth character will be making an appearance in Castle Crashers. That's right, Alien Hominid will be an unlockable character in Castle Crashers. The best part is that if you bought Alien Hominid HD, the little bugger will be unlocked the day you purchase Castle Crashers. Man, August 27th cannot come fast enough!

Time Warps Unlock Classes in Too Human Demo

Grab your flux capacitors and get the 1.21 gigawatt batteries, folks!  It seems that by manipulating the very fabric of the space/time continuum, you can unlock all the character classes in the Too Human demo.  Joystiq has the details, but the basic idea is simple.  The demo was timed to unlock classes on certain dates.  The berserker class unlocked last Friday, and after repeated time-hops into the near future, it has been determined that the Commando will join the action on August 12.  If your Delorean is out of power, and no steam trains are nearby, you could always cheat and set your system clock ahead a year, if you prefer.  The Defender and Bioengineer remain locked even after these temporal somersaults, but they too can be unlocked.  Read on for the details...
