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.

You Can Help Develop this Crowd Sourced Tactical Shooter

"KickStarting" is all the rage these days in game development.  It's the idea that you can connect directly to your potential customers while a product is in it's earliest phases of design and conception.  These users invest in your project, which in turn, you use the money to fund creation.  As an incentive, you give these people perks, much like people who buy collector's editions of games get, but on a whole new level.

Activision bringing TMNT out of the Sewer?

Cowabunga dude! Remember the tubular-talking, pizza eating, crime fighting team of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? In case you didn't, or are too young to remember the good ol' days of anthropomorphic crime fighters, it looks like Activision is going to give you a little reminder.

Still no Steam though...

Terrorhedron: 3D Co-Op Tower Defense Now Available on Multiple Download Services

Tower defense is one of those genres that's on its way to being done to death. But that doesn't mean there aren't lots of unique and compelling tower defense games. Indie PC title Terrorhedron fits such a description - its truly three dimensional levels and 8-player online co-op certainly deserve a little attention. Said attention should be much easier to receive now that the game is available on several major digital distribution platforms.
