Don't throw out your 3DS just yet!

Gather Your Yo-Kai And Battle Bosses With Friends in YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS

While the Switch may be the main platform of choice for Nintendo these days, they haven't forgotten about their other portable system, the 3DS. On September 7, the action-RPG variant of their popular Yo-Kai Watch series, called YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS, will be making its way to our shores and you'll be able to team up with three friends to take down bosses with your collection of spirits.

Play in co-op or battle with more classic Konami characters

Contra Heroes Arrive in Super Bomberman R

No sooner did we publish our co-op review of Super Bomberman R than Konami published an update to every version of the game that adds a host of unlockable characters for co-op and battle modes. The biggest name characters are Snake and Raiden from Metal Gear Solid, but as co-op fans we’re most excited for playable characters from Konami’s traditionally cooperative Contra and Goemon franchises.

High Quality is an understatement.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro with GameDAC Impressions

We have reviewed a lot of SteelSeries headsets over the past ten years on Co-Optimus. Over the course of that time we’ve seen the headset manufacturer from Chicago, IL improve on their designs over and over again. Steadily the quality has increased too with headsets now featuring a very premium feel. Their latest headset is no exception, adding to their Arctis lineup is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro with GameDAC; this is premium headset designed to compete directly with the likes of Astro Gaming’s A40 TX lineup. And compete they do.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Steamy Summer

The Co-Opticrew is getting somewhat hot and bothered by a certain Steam Summer Sale, but not quite as much as you'd expect.  To be honest, our tepid reaction to all those sweet, sweet discounts is likely due to the fact that we've already bought everything we could possibly want (and more, Locke) over the last year or two of sales.  Combine that with the fact that Steam has distanced itself from the fun, creative events of years gone by, and you've got a recipe for a week that will likely pass without a huge amount of celebration.

Who knew something from Norway could be so cute?

Pode Is Out Today On Nintendo Switch

At its core, co-op gaming is about working together to solve whatever problems a game throws your way, and no genres display this trait more explicitly than puzzlers.  The best co-op puzzlers, though, give each player a sense of distinct participation.  Everyone feels like they've contributed something meaningful to the cause, and no player dominates the path to a solution.
