Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Headed to Wii U

You may have remembered in the middle of last year, June to be exact, when LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released. It came out for virtually every console at the time, including an Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, PC, Playstation Vita, and 3DS version. The iterations of the game that featured the most content to explore were the console versions. Well, Warner Bros. Interactive has announced that they will be releasing the same game for the Wii U this spring, at least in Europe. We expect a North American release to follow suit.

More ways to catch a virus, but maybe not with friends

A Virus Named TOM Heading to PlayStation Vita

First, the good news: A Virus Named TOM will be making its way to PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Mobile devices (Xperia) this summer. The bad news is that co-op is looking unlikely for the Vita edition, though developer Misfits Attics is hopeful something can be worked out for the tablet and phone versions. Even without co-op, the portable releases will come with new levels and some new features, so there's no reason to be too bummed out.

Story, Guns, Explosions and Expletives - Must be the new Army of Two: TDC Trailer

Co-Optimus readers have seen their fair share of Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel trailers in the past few weeks, but it is to be expected with the 2 player co-op title due out on the 26th March.  The majority of the videos have teased weapons or gameplay mechanics; in this new trailer (via GameTrailers) we get a glimpse into the story and the many explosions that will unfold.

Gears of War: Judgment Season Pass Offers Permanent Double XP Bonuses

The trend with most AAA titles nowadays is that they’ll more than likely produce a Season Pass of some kind, the Gears of War series being no different. Epic’s upcoming title, Gears of War: Judgment, will be offering its own Season Pass deal, but with a new twist: a permanent, double XP bonus to those who choose to purchase it.

BattleBlock Theater Video Features Co-Op - Or Does It?

A new video teasing BattleBlock Theater has surfaced. This one features gameplay which is not really co-op, but it's not really versus, either. Two players seem to be working toward a common goal, but they're doing it in a such a passive aggressive way. It reminds me of a bickering couple who has been married for about a decade too long. And then of course, there's all the murder.

A Valley Without Wind 2 Co-Op Review

Part strategy, part platformer, part RPG, part board game. A Valley Without Wind 2 takes a lot of different elements and throws them together in a single release. The crazy thing is it works, and it works really well. A massive improvement over the original and a superb game in its own right, A Valley Without Wind 2 is a deep and rewarding strategy game that's going to collect groups of extremely devoted fans.

Painkiller: Hell and Damnation Collector's Edition for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Announced

Painkiller: Hell and Damnation has been one of those games that gives its love to PC gamers first, console players later. The game hit Windows late last year and has already had a patch and two pieces of DLC to spruce up the experience. While the console versions won't hit until April, publisher Nordic Games plans on keeping the experience as parallel as possible. Case in point: Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Collector's Edition for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The Animated "Ark Hunter Chronicles" Revealed for Defiance

Defiance kind of came out of nowhere for us, a game that plays like an MMO but doesn't feature MMO monthly fees. Available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC - Defiance puts players in the role of an Ark Hunter.  Set in a futuristic Earth, the game shares a story with a TV show of the same name, and events seen in both the game and the TV show will affect each other - at least - that's what we're told.

Who can say no to co-op games on the cheap?

Soul Sacrifice Video Features Four Minutes of Savage Spell Casting

Soul Sacrifice looms ever closer, now just a few short months away. I finally got my hands on the Japanese language demo and took it for a spin. Comcept's third person foray into spell casting fueled by self mutilation is a wild ride. Once again I was instantly reminded that I still can't read Japanese. You think I'd get on that. Lucky for me, my badass menu navigation skills are universal. I battled my way through the menus until I got to the real meat of the game. If you have an extra Vita memory card and a Japanes PSN account I highly recommend checking it out.
