It should come as no surprise that this month's Xbox Live Co-Op game is going to be Too Human. The game is set to be released on August 19th, so we'll be having our co-op night on Thursday, August 21st. Want to know more? Read on...
With a release date fast approaching, Too Human has crossed another milestone. The game has officially gone gold, as reported by the Gamerscore Blog. This means that the game should meet it's August 19th release date. The game has gotten some mixed opinions, particularly as of late. So, if you do have some reservations about the game, make sure you play its demo. I still am excited about the game, not just because it comes out on my birthday. Anyone else interested in the "Diablo meets Norse Mythology" blend that is Too Human?
Fans of the PC series Dungeon Siege will be excited about this news. A spinoff from the series, set in a science fiction setting, is coming soon, appropriately titled Space Siege. The game will release on August 12, but in the meantime, you can check out the game's demo, here. Space Siege will feature 4 player co-op, and is an action/rpg. Play through it a bit, and decide if the full version is for you!
July was a busy month, ya know, with E3 and all. So there's plenty of stuff you might have missed. Check it out!
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.
Well folks, it looks like the castle may have just crashed. The long awaited and frequently covered Castle Crashers may have just set in a new record in Xbox Live Arcade pricing - 1800 MS Points. That's $22.50 in "real" money. While we have seen a few arcade titles hit the 1600 point barrier, they are few and far between.
While we don't list MMOs, or cover them on this site, games like World of Warcraft are sort of "implied co-op." The nature of MMOs are to work as a team against hordes of enemies. The reason we can't cover them is there's simply too much information unique to each game, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about them at all!
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!
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!
In case you haven't heard, Too Human comes out in just 3 short weeks. We've been covering the game since April, and I think our anticipation couldn't be much higher. Even though the demo deprived us of co-op, it wet our appetites enough to know we'll be plugging hours upon hours into this game.
Note: I promise not to use any more alliteration throughout this news post.
