Army Corps of Hell Trailer Shows Heavy Metal Co-Op Strategy

We're only a handful of weeks away from the PlayStation Vita launch, and one of the most unique looking co-op titles for the system is Army Corps of Hell.  The game is being published by Square-Enix and looks a bit similar to the Overlord games we've seen before.  In it you'll control hordes of goblins as you conquer monsters and other baddies all while thrashing to heavy metal music.  That last part I may have just made up, but after watching the latest trailer, I can't see it done any other way.

Beyond Co-Op Reviews - February 2012

It's a new year and a new format for our Beyond Co-Op series of non co-op reviews.  The staff has started to post their reviews over in our Blogs section, giving them a little more freedom to write up a review for all the other games we play.  We've also tweaked our scoring to match those of our co-op games, but without a score for co-op.  We simply use the Overall Score scale.

MIcrosoft are offering Silver XBLA members limited Gold access when they try out the Mass Effect 3 demo

Xbox Live Mass Effect 3 Demo to Come With Limited Gold Access

With money currently tighter than a screw after a World's Strongest Man DIY Challenge, a demo is a great way of checking out a game before buying it full price. On the Xbox 360, single player demos can be tried by all (eventually), but multiplayer demos are only accessible to Gold members. No Mass Effect 3 co-op demo for you! That is until Microsoft announced limited Gold access for Silver members who try out the Mass Effect 3 demo.

Our Weekend in Gaming - Tricky Controls Edition

Another weekend is upon us...YES!  The staff will finally be able to kick back and relax a bit, enjoying the numerous games on their menu.  The backlog still runs deep among us, as I'm sure it does for you.  Despite that, we see many morsels ahead of us like Twisted Metal and Resident Evil: Revelations.  One of these games requires a special attachment to get the most out of...the other requires another staff member to teach you how to control it.  Quite the coincidence I'd say.

New Figures Released for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Did you make the mistake of picking up Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure a few months ago?  You did?  My condolences.  Don't get me wrong, the game is a heckuva lot of fun.  It's even better with a friend.  The problem is that procuring the little action figures is akin to a crack addiction, or so I've heard.  The starter kit (which is only like $50 right now on Amazon) comes with the game, the techno-magic portal, and three characters.  This is apparently just enough to get you hooked on spending $10 bucks a pop for additional figurines.

New Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Trailer has got Skillz

Ah Mr. X, we meet again.  How many times did you crush Leon Kennedy's skull with me at the controls?  Were there dozens - maybe hundreds, of head squishings?  Seriously, I can't remember.  I played through Resident Evil 2 multiple times, but that was about 14 years and a million beers ago.  I do remember that Mr. X knows how to make an entrance.  I'm glad to see him back in action.
