Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Sales are Down from CoD: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's sales figures are underperforming. The fastest selling game of all time has sold less units than its predecessor, Call of Duty: Black Ops. This is according to analysts at Macquarie Equities. The actual numbers are not made public, so I guess we'll have to take their word for it. Hell, good enough for Gamasutra, good enough for me.  Sales were most notably down in March, where the military shooter only perfomed half as well as it did at this time last year.

Majestic-12 Announced Featuring 4 Player Co-Op

This one has me a bit confused.  The title of the game is called Majestic-12 and it's a retro style co-op action game.  Sweet I thought, that could be pretty chaotic with twelve players.  As I continue to read the description I read it says only four player co-op, ok, still cool in my mind.  But I read on and learn that you are one of only two surviving members of a group called the Majestic 12.  Let's dig deeper into this XBLA and PC game, shall we?

Our Weekend in Gaming - FEZ Are Cool Edition

As we inch closer to a May release of a certain game, some of the staff felt it would be wise to play a 10 year old prequel to celebrate.  Others will be diving into Mass Effect 3 and its new co-op content and one staff member is determined to go to the hospital with a dislocated shoulder.  Surprisingly not many of us are playing FEZ, the Indie darling that came out on XBLA today.  That may change though.  Ahhh...Spring.

Players work together (or against one another) to complete circuits and spread a virus... named Tom. Today we have two new videos for you: the first is the intro scene from the actual game, the second is a dev blog that shows off several different controller configurations for four player local co-op on a PC, plus a few other things. (Cute baby alert.)
