Chaos Co-Op Coming to Space Marine

Space Marine's free co-op mode, Exterminatus, has been live for all of one week (one day, for 360 owners), and THQ has just announced plans for additional co-op content.  The new DLC will include an Exterminatus campaign titled "Chaos Unleashed."  It will put players in the mighty boots of the Chaos Marines.  You'll face Orks and the Imperial Guard as the Space Marines' evil, and therefore cooler, counterparts.  You just know that all of the Chaos Marines are wearing goatees under their helmets and calling each other "Bro."

Dark Souls' Future Looking Bright, Ships 1.5 Million Copies, Patch is Live Today

There are a lot of gaming masochists out there.  It seems that Dark Souls has shipped 1.5 million copies worldwide, which equals a whole Havel-load of  player deaths.  Multiplayer enthusiasts, be they versus or co-op players, will be happy to hear that the patch I mentioned last week is scheduled to go live on the Japanese version of Dark Souls today.  We can expect the patch to make its way to other regions, as well as the Xbox 360 version of the game, in the near future.

Get Your Grill On with the New BBQ Chef Pack for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Lethal ketchup and mustard!  Do I need to say anything more?  The Dead Rising franchise is no stranger to bizarre costumes and powers, but this new downloadable outfit  for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is delightfully ordinary.  The Chef Skill pack let's fat Frank West dress up like your standard backyard BBQer.  As usual, the new gear will grant Frank new abilities.  He can kill a zombie with condiments, slice and dice the undead with new knife skills, or melt a face off with a red hot frying pan.  Check out the video.  Mmm.  Smells like bacon.  The Chef skill pack will run you $2 bucks, or 160 MSP.

We dig into the nuts and bolts of co-op play.

Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One Co-Op Review

I've only casually played the past Ratchet and Clank games, so I'm a person coming into Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One with an almost clean slate. To be honest, even after it was announced to have a four player co-op mode, I never planned on picking up the game. Once the beta was released I was more than pleasantly surprised at what made up the nuts and bolts of this Ratchet and Clank title.

Resident Evil: Revelations Gets Co-Op Mode, $50 Price Tag

While the 3DS has already gotten a dedicated cooperative Resident Evil game, the next Resident Evil game - despite being single player focused - will also offer a co-op mode.  Resident Evil: Revelations will have a cooperative mode for two players called Raid.  On the surface it seems very similar to the co-op found in the Mercenaries mode in previous RE titles, though there's a few unique twists.

Ubisoft's new domain suggest that Rainbow Six: Patriots is the name of the upcoming game in the popular franchise

The New Rainbow Six Gets a Name

I love me some T-Hunt.  This is the Rainbow Six game mode that allows 4 players to co-op together and take on a map of AI enemies.  The next game in the series has already been announced, but currently remains nameless.  This is about to change as recent domain names suggest Rainbow Six: Patriots will be its moniker.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City to Have a Public Beta

Now that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has a solid release date, we can start wishing for a beta.  Good news!  There's going to be a public beta this winter.  That was easy.  Since the game is due out in a few months, we should expect the beta sometime soon.  RE: ORC Producer Mike Jones says we can expect a beta "early next year."  If this game is as good as I remember, we could be in for a real treat.  Here's a quick synopsis: Four players team up as the members of an evil Umbrella hit team, determined to take out any survivors of the Raccoon City disaster.  Hell yeah.

Co-Op MechWarrior Game is Cancelled, Becomes F2P Versus Game

It was only a week ago today that we told you more news would be coming about a brand new MechWarrior title.  Now that "soon" has arrived, I've been tasked with the bearer of bad news.  While we did get the information promised about the game, now called MechWarrior Online, we've learned that the original concept for the MechWarrior game has been scrapped in favor of a Free 2 Play PC exclusive game with micro transactions.
