Geometry Wars 2 Gameplay Video

As we previously reported, the upcoming sequel to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved (called Geometry Wars 2, natch) will feature a 4 player co-op mode!  The first title was a blast to play, and the addition of co-op should make the sequel even more enjoyable.  Just hope you don't have a seizure or something!  To tide you over to the game's release on August 6, check out the gameplay trailer after the break.  It's single player, but still worth checking out!

Rock Band 2 Set List - Confirmed!

Our own bapenguin has the latest info for us regarding the set list for Rock Band 2.  It appears that many of the songs on earlier lists were indeed legitimate!  The Rock Band camp has really upped the ante with this set list.  Will Guitar Hero: World Tour and Konami's offering, Rock Revolution, be able to compete?  Time will tell.  A bigger (but still a bit blurry) picture of the entire, confirmed set list after the break!

Fable 2 Featuring Seemless Online Co-Op and Screenshots

Peter Molyneaux showed off the long awaited (but pretty much expected) online co-op mode for Fable 2;  but he had one surprise up his sleeve.  The surprise was a seemless co-op experience which integrates into your single player game.  At anytime while walking around the game world you will see these orbs floating around, they represent your friends currently playing the game and their spot in their respective worlds.  Simply walk up to the orb, and you can invite your friend into your world.

Too Human Demo Available... Your Thoughts?

As of today, the demo for Too Human is available on Xbox Live.  It weighs in at just over a gig.  I had the chance to play through it this afternoon; the demo, unfortunately, has no co-op, just single player campaign mode.  That was disappointing for sure, but the demo itself was impressive.  There's a real God of War feel to it, in that you are hacking through hordes of enemies with crazy weapons.  However, RPG elements like leveling up and gaining equipment add quite a bit of depth.  The cut scenes were well done, though at times it was unclear when you were actually in control.  The "cyberspace" wells are quite interesting, giving the game a feel a bit like Metroid Prime 2, where actions in one world effect the other.  My final playtime was around 50 minutes or so.  Now that you have my thoughts, why don't you tell us what you thought of the demo?  Awesome?  Boring?  Let us know!

E3 is Upon Us! What are your Co-Op Predictions?

E3 kicks off tomorrow at 10:30 AM Pacific Time with Microsoft Press conference.  While a price cut is imminent for Microsoft, we also hope we'll hear a bit about some new and interesting titles that feature co-op play.  In fact, one thing I personally hope for throughout the whole show is to see some new franchises, not just sequels, that have a great focus on co-op.

March To The Beat Of Co-Op In Patapon 2!

PSP owners have probably heard of the quirky rhythm/RTS/puzzler/whatever Patapon.  As you can tell from the above screenshot, it's a rather... unique game.  Gameplay is rhythm based, and by giving your little dudes different orders with your drums, they act differently.  It's hard to explain, for sure.  In any event, a sequel to Patapon has just been announced, as you can read at 1Up.  Of note to Co-Optimus readers is the inclusion of co-op multiplayer!
