Assault Heroes 2 Co-Op Review

One of the surprise titles of Xbox Live Arcade was Assault Heroes from Wanako games.  It was a witty, beautiful, and most importantly fun top down shooter with cooperative play.  Over a year later Wanako is back with the sequel and it promises to have more style, more bad guys, and more levels.  Most importantly the game has a renewed focus on co-op play with not only co-op specific attacks, but different ways to play cooperatively including replaying specific sections of the game or playing through the game in it's entirety.

Choose Your Own Co-Op Classic!

Anyone who grew up in the 80s will remember the Choose Your Own Adventure series of books.  The books were wildly popular, though frowned on by my school librarian.  The hook was that you took the role of the main character, and made choices which affected the outcome of the story.  Of course, you could read it again, and make different choices to get a better ending.  This week, prepare to relive this experience, a bit, and get ready to...

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 (also in the same "longest game name" competition as Sacred 2) was revealed not too long ago. So, naturally we are left wanting for more information. As always, IGN has come to the rescue, with a preview of the PC real-time strategy game. The team seems to be enthusiastic about co-op, and the following quote does seem promising.

Co-Op Classics: Diablo

Bleary eyed, I slammed my mouse down and growled out loud.  I could barely see my watch in the dark, lit only by the glare from my monitor.  2:30 AM.  How could I possibly have played this long, and not known it?  I sighed and stared at the screen.  There, in blood red hue, lay the corpse of my warrior, piles of gold everywhere, surrounded by acid spitting demons.  I crept into the other room to find the telephone, and dialed a close friend.  Luckily, I had started this session as a modem game, just in case.  "John?  Are you awake?  I need your help, man.  I died to those lame acid spitters on Hell difficulty again, and there is no way I can get to my corpse.  Dial in and help me?  I can't just restart, man, I just got that King's Longsword of Haste, I'll never find one again..."  So began another co-op rescue mission in Diablo, Blizzard's masterpiece for the PC.

Too Human Pre-Order Details, Armor Screens, Co-Op Info

Continuing our onslaught of Too Human coverage, we've got two tidbits of info today.  The first is a video interview with Denis Dyack where he talks a bit about the game based on community questions, but also talks about what it was like to design the co-op aspect of the game.  Oh, right, and the question was (indirectly) asked by me.  A lot of it is what was already said in our Exclusive Interview, but it's interesting none the less. Next up comes from the folks over at the Gamerscore Blog.  There's a perk for people who preorder the game from various retailers - exclusive armor.  In fact, 5 pieces of exclusive armor, one for each class in the game.  There's new screenshots of the armor and both videos embedded right after the break.

Sacred 2 To Have Two Player Co-op

Please excuse the overuse of the homonyms in the title of this headline, but sometimes it cannot be avoided. Anyhoo, it seems that Sacred 2 : Fallen Angel (a game more known for its PC roots) will have co-op in its 360 version. IGN has a preview of the game, where they detail the game for those who are unaware of what the game is all about. But why should co-op gamers care at all? Well, we will let IGN explain.
