2013 Year in Review of Co-Op Gaming

Another year is in the books. As we head into the 7th year of Co-Optimus, your prime source for co-op gaming, we look back at what 2013 brought us. It was the first year in which we saw major console launches on the site. The big news of those launches though were the politics behind it - an old fashioned console war was brewing and gamers were stuck in the middle of it.

Mercenary Kings Launches (For Real) in 2014

Redemption draws near for those of you who have not yet experienced the chaos of Mercenary Kings on Steam. Developer Tribute Games hopes the four player co-op 2d shooter gets a proper launch in early 2014 on both Steam and PS4. Those chomping at the bit to play may purchase the title immediately while in Early Access on Steam for $14.99. If you somehow manage through this next year without playing this homage to side scrolling shooters of eons past, you should take a moment to consider where your life went so wrong.

X-Men Arcade Game Vanishes from PSN, Stays on XBLA

Like one of Gob's little tricks ("They're illusions, Michael."), X-Men Arcade has been pulled from PlayStation Network without notice. The wacky thing is that it's still up on Xbox Live Arcade. Licensing issues? Excess of tachyon particles building up at Sony HQ? No official word has been released, so we're free to speculate and assume the worst!
