Pop Co-Op: Flop, or Top?

In case you missed it, Nintendo launched their WiiWare service this week.  Wii Ware is Nintendo's answer to Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network in terms of original content.  You won't see arcade remakes here, only original innovative titles using the Wii-mote.

Too Human Co-Op Interview

Too Human is a game that's been through a lot.  From its roots on the Playstation, moving to the Gamecube and finally ending up on Microsoft's Xbox 360 it's been a long path.  Being in development that long brings controversy, and Too Human has had its share from bad previews to engine trouble...that's graphic engine trouble.  But co-op fans can rejoice, Too Human is finally almost here!  In fact, in our exclusive interview with Silicion Knights president and lead designer of Too Human, Denis Dyack, we learn of the game's release date.  What's better?   We have all the juicy details regarding the co-op mode!

Viva Pinata 2 Will Have Co-op

The first details and screenshots for Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise have been discovered by TeamXbox. The details on the game are very sparse, but what we know is that Viva Piñata 2 will have some form of co-op, so that you and a buddy (or your kid) can garden together in some manner. Other than that, there are no more details, though you hit the link you can see some screenshots. As a fan of the original Viva Piñata, I can say that online co-op does sound pretty nice. How about you?

Left 4 Dead Details Come to Life

A preview for the upcoming zombie title, Left 4 Dead, is available at TVG.  The game may seem to be the typical survival horror type, but several details are coming out that should pique the interest of co-op fans like a plate of brains would for a zombie.  The "4" referred to in the game's title refers to the 4 player co-op campaign.  Co-op is no afterthought or half-baked effort in this title; the story and gameplay were all developed from the ground up with four players in mind.  There is no true single player mode; bots will fill in for human players if less than 4 are available.  Replay value looks to be high, as well: the game's AI allows for enemies to spawn from different locations, in different numbers, and with different tactics each time a map is loaded.  No zombie closets here, folks.  Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the game is 8 man multiplayer, which is a nice blend of co-op and awesome:
