A long wait for this gorgeous hybrid of beat-em-up and RPG

Atlus Picks Up Dragon's Crown, Pushes Release Back to 2013

Dragon's Crown, Vanillaware's upcoming brawler/RPG for Playstation 3 and Vita, will no longer launch in 2012 as planned. The original publisher, UTV Ignition (who publishes mostly junk) quietly dropped the game from its release schedule. Thankfully, Atlus has stepped in to not only publish this beautiful game, they're also taking a hand in its development duties now as well.

Co-Op Classics: Cadillacs and Dinosaurs

If you were a gamer in the 90s, and spent time in arcades, Capcom was a name you knew very well. Street Fighter II was released in 1991, and was a smash hit, popularizing the one on one fighting game genre. But if you were looking for a less competitive experience in your video gaming, Capcom was still a big name, producing some of the greatest co-op arcade games of all time. Cadillacs & Dinosaurs is one of them.

Save the planet! Shoot Many Robots!

Shoot Many Robots Co-Op Night - April 22nd

This Sunday, April 22nd, is Earth Day, so we're participating in the planet-saving efforts by playing Shoot Many Robots (XBLA). Well, ok, that doesn't exactly help save the planet, but bear with me. The robots in Shoot Many Robots are fueled by fossil fuels, and we all know burning fuel is harmful to the environment. The more robots we destroy, the better off our planet will be.

PixelJunk 4am Coming to the PSN This May

PixelJunk 4am, Sony's new motion controlled music game, is coming to the PSN next month. Players will use a Move controller to pull musical tracks into their song and use a range of motions to manipulate the music. The game supports two player local co-op, or more accurately, two Move motion controllers. A single selfish maestro can dual wield two Move controllers if they want to get all John Woo with their music.

Do You Like to Move It, Move It? Madagascar 3 Announced

Nothing seems to entertain the younger members of my family more than a CGI cartoon containing gurning animals.  The Madagascar series provides such entertainment, but it has not been until Madagascar 3: The Video Game that co-op has been involved.  Due out alongside the film on June 5th, Madagascar 3 will have local 2 player drop in co-op and will crash land on Wii, 360 and PS3.

Paul gives Splinter Cell: Conviction's Co-op campaign a shot

This Week in Co-Op: Developing a Conviction for Splinter Cell

I know I'm a little late to the Splinter Cell: Conviction party, but for some reason I never tried the game until this year. After reviewing the Windows Phone version for my other job, I decided to give the Xbox 360 game a chance. I enjoyed the stripped-down version, and its big brother even has both split-screen and online co-op for 2 players. How could I go wrong?
