Call of Duty: Elite iOS App Launches Today, Black Ops 2 Domain Acquired

You're at the dentist's office, perusing a three-year-old copy of Highlights.  You're crushing the Hidden Pictures puzzle, easily spotting items that have yet to be circled.  Your total dominance of the children's magazine brings back memories of the previous night's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 shellacking you took at the hands of what were clearly uncouth, cheating adolescents.  Their wicked laughter causes you to shudder, drawing stares from other waiting patients.  Hanging your head in shame, you pause for inward reflection, knowing you were bested by boorish children half you age.

Magfest 2012 In Pictures

This past weekend I packed my bags and headed south to Washington, DC to check out Magfest - a festival that celebrates videogames and videogame music.  The show has plenty of stuff for folks to do including a free play arcade with many classic cabinets (including my favorite Moon Patrol).  There's also a LAN party area, table top gaming area, and plenty of independent artists selling their wares.

A new gameplay video reveals the crisp 2D ultraviolence that is Shank 2

We Say Shankyou for the Gameplay Video

Co-optimus really enjoyed the recent 2D platformer Rayman Origins, but it lacked a certain something; ultraviolence. I did not grow up on a diet of video nasties and shocking images just to play a game a child could watch. I want blood, guts, chainsaws and viscera. Thankfully, as this new gameplay video shows, Shank 2 will provide all my grue based needs.

Dark Souls PC Petition Gaining Steam

Praise the Sun!  We're nine days into 2012 and we haven't done a Dark Souls article yet?  Truly it is the end of days.  It's about time I fix that.  Over the weekend I received an email from a Co-Optimus community member concerning a petition to port Dark Souls to PC.  That's a mighty fine idea.  The more people playing Dark Souls, the better.  (I'm hoping for a sequel titled Darker Demon's Souls: Back to Boletaria)  I was curious if anyone would get behind the PC petition.  Lo and behold, as of this writing 52,392 people have signed on.
