In a recent interview Starbreeze suggest that the new Syndicate will be a tough 50 hours worth of gameplay

Syndicate Provides 50 Hours of Tough Gameplay

Many gamers today don't know they are born. Back when I started playing games you were lucky to get out of the first room, never mind complete the game (I'm looking at you Jet Set Willy). Today it’s all AutoSaves and constant check points. An upcoming game that may buck this trend is Syndicate. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Starbreeze have hinted that the game will provide around 50 hours of pleasure, but you'll have to work hard to complete everything.

RPGs Enhanced by Multiplayer Says Bioware Founders

It's a topic/point of debate that gets brought up often here at Co-Optimus: Does co-op make a game better? For a site that's dedicated to co-op gaming, you're surely thinking that the obvious answer would be, "yes, of course it does;" however, that may not always be the case. Bioware, developer of the upcoming Mass Effect 3 - the first game in the series to feature co-op gameplay - seems to agree.

Dungeon Defenders DLC Won't Make it to Consoles

The PC version of Dungeon Defenders has been the superior version for numerous reason, the biggest being it's had a half dozen pieces of DLC already available.  The other being the game has been available for some ridiculously cheap prices on Steam.  While console gamers have gotten their own sale on the game, it hasn't been anywhere near as cheap.  Sadly it looks like console gamers aren't going to ever get the DLC for the game too.

Du-du-DU-du-Du-DU The Simpsons (Arcade coming to PSN 7th Feb)

The Simpsons Arcade Coming to PSN 7th Feb - Free for PS Plus Members

The titles are rolling on yet another episode of The Simpsons, but this time it is not one of the tired antics of the past few years, but a classic from the past; The Simpsons Arcade. Co-Optimus already dropped the news that The Simpsons Arcade was coming to PSN and XBLA, but Sony have thrown in an extra bonus. If you are a member of the Playstation Plus scheme you can download the game for free from the 7th February. As for owners of Microsoft's gaming behemoth - no news yet on a release or pricing.

What's your 2012 gaming resolution?

CCV Blog Wrap-up for January 2012

Making a New Year's resolution and telling everyone about it is a good way to make sure you improve yourself year over year. That's why we asked you to make a Gaming Resolution for 2012. A few of you took that to heart and came up with some admirable resolutions. Everyone took a step back, looked at their gaming habits, and picked an area where they can really make improvements. I applaud all of you who made the effort to not only think of a resolution, but also made it public for everyone to see. Let's take a look what you had to say.

Insomniac will be focusing on Overstrike Instead

Insomniac to Not Make Any More Resistance Games

Insomniac recently announced that the Resistance series has been concluded, with CEO Ted Price simply stating in an interview: "We won't be making any more Resistances." This may be disappointing to some of us co-op-minded folks, as Resistance 3 was a pretty solid co-op experience (we gave it a 4.5 out of 5). The good news, though, is that Insomniac will be focusing their efforts on upcoming Overstrike, another co-op shooter. What's more is that Overstrike will be available on both 360 and PS3 platforms, unlike the Resistance games, which were Playstation only. If Insomniac is planning on making Overstrike their shooter franchise in place of Resistance, then that would mean that more co-op'ers would be included, which can only be a good thing.
