Beyond Co-Op - May 20th through May 26th, 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. Here is a selection of stories which either thrilled or disappointed me, depending on how sad they are! And of course, we continue to hold our breaths for the flood of news that will come with E3, just over a week away.

Inversion Delayed

Once again, space and time have warped around the gravity manipulation game, Inversion, causing another delay. According to Eurogamer, the game has been pushed to July. It was supposed to launch on June 5th. This is the 63rd delay for the game, the first most notably coming in August of 1981, when the title was originally scheduled to arrive on the Atari 2600. I bet the delay will give Saber Interactive a chance to make it even better, assuring us a polished co-op experience.

Another Flatulent Video For Orc Attack

A new video for Orc Attack has reared its ugly head. The four player hack-and-slash adventure features a team of gastrically challenged orcs. They use their repulsive bodily functions as gag-inducing power attacks while chopping puny humans to pieces. Sound gross? It is. If you're into dual wielding giant weapons and think fart jokes are hilarious, this might be the game for you.

Now players can create their own custom maps

Shogun 2 Receives a Modding Editor

Many RTSs and strategy games boast extremely enthusiastic and creative communities who love to create their own mods for the game. Happily, many of the heavy hitters in the genre allow them to do just that, and Total War: Shogun 2 can now be numbered among them. Via "the Editor," or "TEd," Shogun 2 players can now create their own custom maps for both co-op and multiplayer battles. TEd works for both the original Shogun 2 as well as its stand-alone expansion Fall of the Samurai.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Demo Live, New Video Displays Kinect Controls

I have played the Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor demo, and it's... different. The mech game requires the use of both a controller and the Xbox 360's Kinect sensor. I've been curious about the title since it was announced back in 2010, even more so when a four player co-op mode was revealed last month. Do the Kinect and 360 controller play well together? Check out the following video to get an idea for how everything works.

Diablo 3 Breaks PC Sales Records in First Week, First Patch Released Too

When Diablo 2 launched in 2000, I worked at a store called Electronics Boutique, the predecessor to Gamestop.  I still remember walking into the back room and seeing a stack of boxes twice as high as myself and thinking - damn - that's a lot of copies of that game.  But apparently that was nothing.  Blizzard have announced that Diablo 3 has sold over 6.5 million copies in its first week alone, with 4.7 million of those sales coming on the FIRST DAY.  And you wonder why you had an Error 37.
