CCV Blog Update February 2012

This year is starting to heat up and it sounds like you guys and gals are pretty excited. This month we asked you, the community, what your most anticipated game is.

Co-Opticast Episode 81: The Vita Episode

Our quad is down to trey after Mike is out for the count with a stomach bug. No worries, Jason, Locke and Nick come in with a hefty what you've been playing session to fill the void. Afterwards we discuss news and highlight some awesome user blogs. After that? It's onto the Vita with some hands on time live on the air. *NOTE* The video version is a little messed up for the first 12 minutes. We're still figuring out the technical aspects of this.

Rising Star Games Opens a US Branch, Announces Akai Katana for North America

You could describe Rising Star Games as the Atlus of Europe. No, I don't mean they hold Europe on their shoulders - that'd be Atlas. They just publish really cool and sometimes niche games, including King of Fighters XIII (an Atlus title in the US) and region-free co-op shoot-em-up DoDonPachi Resurrection. Now Rising Star is expanding to the US, which can only be good for gamers. Their first American release will be Akai Katana, another Xbox 360 co-op shmup from Japanese developer Cave.

Sony strikes again!

Warriors Orochi 3 to be Digital Download Only on Playstation 3, Retail on Xbox 360

North American Playstation 3 owners looking forward to Warriors Orochi 3 will have to make due with a digital download version rather than boxed copies, as Sony has struck down a retail release for the latest Warriors title. The reason it can't be sold in stores? No English dialogue, though it does contain English subtitles. This esoteric mandate from Sony's US branch has caused other would-be retail titles to go straight to digital in the past as well. Presumably, the Yakuza games received retail releases due to either pressure from SEGA or a bargain of some sort.

Mass Effect 3 Co-Op Demo Impressions, PC Edition News, Plus A Chance to Get the Full Game Early

First and foremost: there will be no plot spoilers in this post.  There. That's out of the way.  By now you've probably heard that the Mass Effect 3 demo has dropped.  This little glimpse will allow players to experience two story missions from the main game as well as engage in the franchise's first attempt at cooperative play.  Nick and I played a few rounds the other day, and we're happy to report that the co-op mode is accessible, addictive, and most of all, fun.
