Blue Shield Alliance Updates - Free Theme Song, Composer Interview, Screens and More!

It was one month ago today that I revealed my latest project, SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance.  The four player co-op Xbox Live Indie and PC game has been a passion of mine and the small team working on it for the past 5 months.   We've been trying to update the official website with content a few times a week, but this week we have some truly special stuff I didn't want you fine folks to miss out on.

This Week in Co-Op: Syndicate...Like a Boss

In my recent Syndicate review I mentioned a great scenario in which three of us managed to take on a particularly tough level and come out victorious.  The actual scenario turned out to be one of the final levels of the co-op campaign.  The most amazing thing about our victory was that my two partners, Mike and Andrew, were only level 1 or 2 characters with minimal upgrades as they had just gotten the game.  While my level 14 or 15 was nothing to scoff it, it still showcases how balanced Syndicate's co-op can be even with an unbalanced team.

A new teaser site has appeared hinting at a return to the universe of Baldur's Gate

Joy! Is a New Baldur's Gate Incoming?

The Baldur's Gate franchise remains one of my fondest memories of the Playstation 2/Xbox era.  All those years ago I played Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance with my girlfriend in local co-op.  I would be the mighty barbarian rushing into attack; she would be the dwarf being forced to stay at the rear as she always got killed. We are still together, but there has been a Baldur's Gate (BG) sized hole in our lives for a long time - but with the launch of a new teaser site, perhaps our dreams of a BG future will actually happen?

Ghost Recon Future Soldier Pre-Orders Offer Bonus Co-Op Maps

Ghost Recon Future Soldier looks as if its finally going to see the light of day this May.  The four player co-op game has been a long time coming and after our hands on impressions with it at E3 last year, we couldn't be more excited for the first Ghost Recon game in years.  Like any game these days, if you want to get the "entire package" it all depends on where you pre-order from - as most retailers offer exclusives as an incentive.

Two preview vids are out for Kinect Star Wars

The Force is Dubious with these Kinect Star Wars Vids

When I turned 7, my Dad threw me a Star Wars themed birthday party. This consisted of all the kids dressing up as Star Wars characters and chasing my Dad (playing Darth Vader) around the garden with rolled up newspapers. Nothing I have seen since has come close in terms of re-enacting the original Star Wars trilogy (certainly not the second trilogy), but Kinect Star Wars has the potential. Two new preview videos have surfaced that give an impression of what the game will provide.

Co-Opticast Episode 82: The Great White North

Co-Opticast Episode 82 is here. Our new quad of hosts are finally hitting their stride as they manage to talk about all the co-op goodness they've been playing. From Syndicate to the Vita there's lots of impressions to be had. Then it's on to user blogs to discuss what we want from our games. After that it's onto the news and the biggest announcement, or rather hype, Borderlands 2. Yes we spend 30 minutes talking about a 3 minute trailer. Not really. Maybe.
