Our Weekend in Gaming - The White Fluffy Edition

Snoooooooooooow!  Run for your consoles!  Much of the country seems to be have gotten or about to get snow, so it's a good time to game.  It seems the recent Gears of War 3 DLC has reinvigorated some of the staff into jumping back in with Marcus Fenix and friends.  The rest seem set on hitting up Steelport in Saints Row the Third.  All of that is mixed up with some careful backlog clean up as we prepare to head into an unusually busy February month!

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Co-Op Review

Sneaking mission?! ... Co-Op?!? ... HIGH DEFINITION?!?!! The 2010 release of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker saw the welcome addition of cooperative tactical espionage action to the otherwise solo only adventures of one Solid (or Naked) Snake, though being a PSP only release did somewhat limit the co-op (and screen size). So, does an HD release do anything to improve the co-op or the game as a whole?

Happy Action Theater Brings Kinect Co-Op Insanity to XBLA February 1st

Xbox Live Arcade games that require Kinect can be hit or miss. For every Fruit Ninja Kinect, there is also a Leedmees. But Happy Action Theater has something going for it that inspires plenty of confidence: it comes from Tim Schaeffer's Double Fine Productions. These guys are known for their creativity, and they've already demonstrated their Kinect expertise with Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.

Now the third Orochi game, Warriors Orochi 3 (aka Orochi Musou 2 for some reason) will be unleashed on western shores. But are we ready for all the hackin' and a-slashin'?

Resident Evil 6 Announcement Video, Co-Op Confirmed

Resident Evil 6 has been announced, and as we had hoped, the game will support cooperative play.  None of the co-op details have been released, but we expect a minimum of two player local and online co-op, which was readily available in Resident Evil 5.  A new action packed launch trailer shows off some new enemies, locations, and one of the worst haircuts in gaming.  I won't spoil it for you here.  Click away!
