Dungeonland, Dark Souls, Dead Space, Dragon's Dogma - What's with the D's?

Our Weekend in Gaming - This Theme Park Must Die Edition

You may have noticed a bit of DungeonLand around Co-Optimus right now.  There's a few of us on staff actually playing the game, which we found to be a bit like Smash TV.  Needless to say the difficulty helps promote the co-op experience.  For those of us that don't want to take a ride through a bloody theme park, there's plenty of other stuff to play like Dark Souls.

Are you ready for February?

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for January, 2013

I still have a hard time believing it's 2013.  Frankly, this year is off to a pretty lame start for a lot of people, so I'm hoping February can redeem what January started.  While January started slow for games, it crashed right into a February that looks ripe with releases.  Because of that, we actually had quite a bit of news about games like Dead Space 3, Aliens Colonial Marines, and more.

It's all fun and game until you have to murder each other.

God Mode Has An Interesting Take On Co-Op

Atlus has revealed more information for their new cooperative third-person shooter, God Mode. If you're unfamiliar with the recently announced downloadable title, I'll offer you this brief refresher: You're the descendant of a god, and you're dead. Gather up to three additional corpse friends and battle your way through the Maze of Hades to earn your immortal redemption.  Game modifiers will change the rules of battle, bringing variety to each playthrough.

They're coming, but what are they?

CCV: Next Gen Console Predictions

For February's Co-Optimus Community Voice, we want to hear what you have to say about all the console hubbub. What do you think about all the rumors circulating the web? What about your predictions? What will the consoles be named and what features/specs are we going to see? What features will help advance co-op gaming? Which console will be the most co-op friendly?

A "gamer's game" on Facebook.

KingsRoad Co-Op Hands on Impressions

For hardcore gamers, Free To Play, has an almost negative stigma associated with it.  Combine that with the word "Facebook" and you're looking at the double whammy of disgust.  It's not hard to see why, with titles like Farmville begging for social sharing and clicks and other titles cheapening the experience by asking you to pay for gratification.  But there are some gems out there that are bucking the trend, the latest is a game from Rumble called KingsRoad - a hack and slash RPG that's playable via Facebook or Rumble's website.

So bad it's good; so good it hurts.

New Earth Defense Force 2025 Video is What B-Movies Are Made Of

It's official. I'm canceling my Dead Space 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines pre-orders. I have to use that money to buy two copies of Earth Defense Force 2025. A new trailer popped up today and it's one of the best damn things I've ever seen. Sure, it features some footage from earlier EDF 2025 videos, but there's some new bug stomping action mixed in as well. And this time it's in English. Kind of.

Four planned pieces of DLC

Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass Confirmed

I'm getting a real "kill all non-humans" vibe from early February. Dead Space 3 drops the first week of of the month, and then a week later we will be treated to Aliens: Colonial Marines. It must be hunting season for necro- and xenomorphs. Not only will both games feature humanity asserting itself as the dominant life form in the galaxy, both games will have a healthy supply of DLC.

Wake up Chief, it's a co-op night

Halo 4 Co-Op Night - February 7th

Master Chief and Co-Optimus Co-Op Nights have one thing in common, they were MIA for far too long. There’s good news though, they’re both making a return with Halo 4. Co-Optimus and Xbox Live have teamed up to bring you a Halo 4 Co-Op Night on February 7th, starting at 8PM Eastern. We’ll be playing through the campaign and/or the new co-op mode named Spartan Ops. There’s an event thread in our forums where you should post your gamertag and what you’re interested in playing. Plan on revisiting the thread on February 7th to find people to meet up with.

McAfee Ain't Got Nothing on me

Retrovirus Co-Op Review

I have a special place in my heart for nerdy things related to old PC culture. Perhaps it reminds me of an innocent youth in front of my 386DX messing with config.sys and autoexec.bat files trying to determine if I should include or not include himem.sys. Still with me? If you are, then I've got a game that plays to those memories quite well. The game is call Retrovirus, from indie developer Cadenza, and it not only features plenty of geeky throwbacks and a full co-op campaign in 6DOF.

Infinity under attack.

Halo 4 Spartan Ops Season 1 - Episode 7 Overview, Episode 8 Preview

We're back with another co-op walkthrough of the latest chapter in Halo 4's Spartan Ops campaign.  We're up to chapter 7 this week, with the missions once again being mixed up quite a bit from the previous formula.  There's three brand new maps to play on, with the majority of them taking place aboard Infinity itself.  These missions also feature some of the most intense firefights we've seen to date in Spartan Ops.
