Co-Op Classics video Edition: Progear and Rohgha Armor Force

We've got two great examples of Co-Op Classics for you once again, in glorious video form. Both of today's games are shoot em ups, so there are plenty of bullets to dodge and fire buttons to mash. The first is one of the most beautifully rendered games, with an unusual setting, that I've ever seen. The second is very different from other genre classics, including a heavy amount of customization. Progear and Rohgah Armor Force are headed your way.

Beyond Co-Op - May 27th through June 2nd, 2012

Welcome to another installment of Beyond Co-Op, where we look "beyond co-op" and bring you some of the gaming news that doesn't necessarily revolve around cooperative play. This week, we have an assortment of topics and quotes that revolve around the event of E3 (not necessarily this one) and of the gaming industry’s predicted future.

Sniper Elite V2 Hitler Killin' Mission Available to Buy June 5

Sniper Elite V2 boasted one of the most interesting and fun preorder DLC bonuses in recent memory - the 'Assassinate the Fuhrer' mission. The game takes place during the closing days of World War II, a time when der Führer's number was just about up. As such, the mission provides the ultimate WWII sniping fantasy. Gamers who waited for our co-op review before buying and missed out on the bonus can fret no longer, as it goes on sale to all next week.

Soul Sacrifice Confirmed for North American Release

Last week we brought you news of a grisly new cooperative fantasy game for the PlayStation Vita. Soul Sacrifice is a game based on players sacrificing themselves in order to acquire great power. This doesn't sound too bad, until you see characters ripping out their eyes, setting themselves on fire, or forcibly removing their own spine. These ghastly self-mutilations enable the players to use powerful destructive spells. We were concerned that the game wouldn't see a US release, due to its sheer lunacy. We are happy to report that Soul Sacrifice will be available in both North America and Europe.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition and Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed

We all know that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed until next year, which makes this sweet Collector's Edition all the more painful to behold.  The highlight of the CE is the bad-ass resin Powerlaoder-squishing-a-xenomorph statue. I still don't understand how there's not a Powerloader in every garage in America, you know, for gardening and stuff. You can see all the included items in the collector's edition after the break.

Red DLC Introduces Co-Op to Frozen Synapse

Mode 7 has celebrated their 1 year anniversary of Frozen Synapse with the release of their first expansion pack. Aptly named 'Red', this new DLC injected 2 player co-op into the award winning tactical strategy indie game with players now being able to play the whole campaign cooperatively. Red also adds new challenge missions, a riot shield class, a new multiplayer mode, and more all for the low price of $9.99. Players who do not have Red will still have access to the new content as long as they are playing with someone who has purchased the DLC.
