Tabletop Co-Op: Dead Panic

Way back before Tabletop Co-Op was a regular feature here at Co-Optimus, we covered boardgames every once in a while in our Casual Fridays column, dedicated to family/kid friendly games.

Skeleton Smarts: Enemy AI Explained in New Hellraid Trailer

The undead enthusiasts making Hellraid want you to believe in the power of skeletons to work together as a team. We are all acutely aware just how coordinated skeletons can be.

How things have changed since the Left 4 Dead Days

Turtle Rock Founder Talks Evolve's Co-Op

Tom Clancy's The Division's Snowdrop Engine Explained

It's no secret that Tom Clancy's The Division looks incredible. Not just from a visual standpoint, but also on a technical level. Bullets blaze through cop car windows and leave bullet holes, not just blasting out the glass entirely.

Here's a little song I wrote... about killing zombies

Typing of the Dead: Overkill Brings Gore to the Dance Floor

We love Typing of The Dead: Overkill's wacky style. When the original launched, typing phrases like "Ample buxom" and "Is it too late to shake hands" always had us giggle as we shot off the heads of various zombies. Then the Shakespeare DLC was released and we were suddenly trading horses for zombies heads (instead of kingdoms) all while washing blood off our hands. When things couldn't get any better, the Silver Screen DLC dropped and we were typing our favorite one liners from Apocalypse Now and Die Hard. Just when we thought developer Modern Dream reached the top, they go one step further.
