Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault Coming to Retail and PSN This November

Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault has been planned as a downloadable Playstation 3 title ever since its announcement a few months back. Some people prefer physical copies to digital though, and Sony has taken their pleas into account. The game will now be coming to retail as a Blu-Ray disc as well as the PSN store. Even better, it supports cross-play and cross-save with the Vita, meaning you can buy it on PS3 and get the Vita version at no additional cost. Well-played, Sony.

'Gangnam Style' and 'Call Me Maybe' Coming to Dance Central 3

In our Dance Central 3 Co-Op Review, I couldn't help wishing the game had included the popular song 'Gangnam Style.' The song and music video by Korean K-Pop artist PSY is not only incredibly popular all over the world right now, it even has its own distinctive dance. Surely 'Gangnam Style' would make a killing as DLC. Thankfully Harmonix has listened to the roar of fan requests. Joystiq reports that not only is 'Gangnam Style' coming to Dance Central 3 as DLC, but so is Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe.'

Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition Coming to PlayStation 3 Next Month

Average shoot'em ups are a dime a dozen, but Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition is something special. At least that's what the game's publisher, Rising Star, would like us to believe.  The game originally appeared in arcades in 2005 and then made the jump to the -what? The Dreamcast? Ok. The game was then released on the Dreamcast in 2006. Now it will be coming to the PlayStation 3 this fall.

Release Delays Don't Always Have to be Bad

ibb and obb Release Delayed for a Reason We Support - Adding Online Co-Op

Some of you may remember an indie co-op game called ibb and obb that we mentioned way back on our "Co-Op Games of 2012 Preview" episode of the Co-Opticast. The premise of the game (based on what we've seen so far) is fairly simple: two creatures (the titual ibb and obb) attempt to traverse a landscape that is mirrored across a horizontal plane. Traversing this landscape entails working together and using the inescapable affects of gravity to reach higher ledgers, soar past enemies, and generally pull of some pretty cool jumps.

Co-Opticast Episode 95: The Colonel Fundip Episode

Oh XCOM, how we wish you had co-op play. Perhaps it's for the better, as we already spend way too much time battling the alien menace turn by turn. We've got a short and sweet episode for you this week where we talk about what we've been playing including impressions of Miner Wars, Painkiller Hell and Damnation, Borderlands 2, and many other quality titles.

You helped Co-Optimus save lives

Extra Life - Thank You!

Last weekend, our Extra Life team endured a 24 hour gaming marathon, and raised $2,188.75 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Those donations are going straight to the Children's Hospitals we each chose, to help kids in need. This was our first year organizing a team, and we blew away our goal of $1,000. As someone who has personally spent months visiting my child in the hospital, that makes me very proud. On behalf of the Co-Optimus staff, our Co-Optimus Extra Life team, and parents everywhere, I'd like to thank each of you who donated, participated, or helped spread the word. It means alot to me, and it literally means the world to kids fighting diseases, disabilities, and prematurity.

Worms Revolution Funfair DLC Adds Much-Needed Sweets

Worms Revolution may not be much of a co-op game (see our review), but it's still the best game in the Worms series. Packed with tons of weapons, all-new physics, and a wry sense of humor, it's a great way to blow up a few of your friends without having to clean up the mess afterward. Team17 always releases DLC for their Worms games, and now Revolution has its first release: The 'Funfair Pack.' How do a new background, puzzles, and dress up accessories sound to you?

If you still want a Wii, there's some local co-op friendly Wii packs coming soon

Skylanders Giants and Just Dance 4 Wii Packs Out November

The Wii U is right on the horizon, which for some probably means finally turning in their old Wiis. For others, though, it might mean trying to score some good deals on the old console before it disappears forever. At least, that's Nintendo's thought, because there's two Wii packs due out early November. Happily, they're both local co-op friendly due to the new releases they come bundled with. The two bunddles are the Just Dance 4 bundle (4-player local co-op) for $130 and the Skylanders Giants bundle (2-player local co-op) for $150. These bundles are due to hit the shelves November 4th.
