Ninja Gaiden 3 Launch Trailer Features Pain, Swords, and a Dinosaur

One of gaming's most punishing franchises returns to consoles next week.  Ninja Gaiden 3 will continue the tradition of being painfully difficult.  I remember my time with 2004's Ninja Gaiden remake on the original Xbox.  I tapped out around the third stage.  I think I was fighting on a blimp, or something.  I just remember hating every enemy, including the scrubs.  Since then the series has become more accessible.  You can always increase the difficulty if you're a masochist.

EA will shut down servers for more games on April 13th

EA to Shut Down Online Servers for Spare Parts

Yup, it's happening again. EA has announced that they will be shutting down more servers for several more games. And once again, a co-op title is affected. This time, LEGO-esque downloadable title Spare Parts is getting the bat.  You'll probably remember that this has happened before to another co-op game, Army of Two. That game, though, at least had a few years of online play available to gamers. Spare Parts, however, has only been out for a little more than a year. Though we felt the game had its share of flaws, it's still a sad day to see an online or offline co-op title lose the whole "online" bit.

Shoot Many Robots Co-Op Review

Shoot Many Robots is the metaphorical tale of one man's struggle to discover what it means to still be human in a soulless world filled with faceless, servile automatons. Nah, I'm kidding. You shoot robots in the face, and when they don't have faces you just use your best judgement and shoot whatever looks important. Shoot Many Robots. That's what you do. Need to know more? Check out our Co-Op Review.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Content Drop #1 Spec-Ops Impressions

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's first major content pack is upon us and with it comes two brand new cooperative missions.  We went through the original Spec-Ops missions extensively and for the most part, these are some of the best Call of Duty set pieces to date, especially since they are meant to be experienced with a buddy.  On top of these there's a handful of new maps for Modern Warfare 3's survival mode.

One card game to rule them all?

Tabletop Co-Op: Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

The Lord of the Rings saga has always been popular, but perhaps never before has it been as mainstream as it is now. A decade ago, the movie trilogy brought orcs, elves, and dwarves into theaters and then our living rooms as never before. Later this year, the long delayed film based on the Hobbit will be released. For Tabletop Co-Op this month, we'll look at a card game based on Tolkien's magnificent setting.

Come for the co-op, stay for the rappies.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Coming to Vita, Will Suck Hours of Your Life Away

The Playstation Portable Phantasy Star Portable games were pretty great, but multiplayer was restricted to local wireless, making it difficult for most of us to enjoy co-op questing together. Besides, they were based on Phantasy Star Universe, and everybody who's anybody likes the original Phantasy Star Online better. Good news for the cool kids then, because not only is SEGA making a real Phantasy Star Online 2, but it's coming to the Playstation Vita!

Lots of downloadable co-op deals to be had

Watch out, Konami and Hack-and-Slash XBLA Titles Half Off This Week

While several notable Xbox Live Arcade games launched during February's Must Have Games 2012 promotion, actual XBLA deals were less than exciting. Now that March has come along, Microsoft is really kicking things into gear with not one, but two big sales this week (and that's on top of the month-long ilomilo sale). All told, 10 downloadable games featuring co-op are on sale for half-off this week, including Konami hits X-Men Arcade, Hard Corps: Uprising, and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. We've compiled a list complete with co-op details to make your purchasing decisions easier.
