What's your 2012 gaming resolution?

Co-Optimus Community Voice for January 2012 - Gaming Resolution

It's 2012, the year the world ends because some Mayan dude ran out of room on a stone slab. It seems silly to make a new year's resolution since the world is going to end, but let's do it anyway. Have you made any resolutions? Let's talk about it! I'm sure many of you have resolutions to work out more, eat better, or save more cash for the kids' college funds... BORING! Nobody wants to hear about that mundanity. Keep that garbage on Twitter!

Our Weekend in Gaming - Twenty Twelve Is Really Here Edition

We're a week into 2012, and so far this is the lamest apocalypse I have ever experienced.  I guess I can start dismantling the steel spikes, armored plating, and barbed wire I recently installed on our Prius.  I live on the West Coast, so maybe all the hellfire missed us?  The rest of the staff seems eerily calm, considering it's the end of the world...

Resident Evil: Revelations will receive a free demo from the Nintendo eShop.  We don't know exactly when the demo will be available, but since the game comes out next month, we figure it will be out soon. Capcom’s Christian Svensson mentioned the upcoming demo in the Capcom-Unity forums: “A RE: Revelations demo for NA and Europe is coming... When we have something more concrete to share, you won't be able to miss it on the Capcom-Unity blog."

A Co-Op Hitman Game Just Never Felt Right says Absolution Director

I have a secret.  For many years now I've secretly desired a game like Hitman that allowed multiple players to plan and execute a kill.  In fact, almost 3 years ago I thought about starting a column here on Co-Optimus with the premise of having the community contribute to co-op game design ideas, with the first column being about the very topic.  Sadly, it looks like a true Hitm‚Äčan game with co-op isn't coming anytime soon - mostly due to the fact that Agent 47 as a character is a bit of loner.

New Achievements Point to New Mission DLC for Saint's Row the Third

I think we can all agree, Saints Row: The Third is a damn fun game.  I think we can also agree that the real gangsters are working at THQ.  Two bucks for some outfits?  What the hell, guys?  I understand that everyone likes to make money, but SR3 feels like it's been parted out and sold to us through a chop shop.  Oh well, if you don't like it, don't buy it.  I, however, need a samurai mask and warrior princess underoos for my character, so it looks like the joke is on me.

The House of the Dead 3 and 4 Are Coming to the PlayStation Network

Get your light-guns ready!  Or wands, or glowing stick-balls, or whatever the heck those PlayStation Move things are called.  The House of the Dead 3 and The House of the Dead 4 are coming to a PlayStation 3 near you.  The gory on-rails light-gun shooters have been upgraded with HD graphics, trophies, and Move support.  You can use a normal controller if you prefer, but that's kind of like taking a shower in a rain coat, if you know what I mean.

Give Bryce the "Desperate" ability or add more voice over jokes to the game

NeverDead to Have Some Silly DLC

Third-person shooter NeverDead isn't out yet, but folks looking forward to the game's release may be interested to learn about some recently announced DLC. The DLC will add some small, but silly, optional changes to the game. The first of these is the "Desperate" ability which can be equipped by protagonist Bryce Boltzman. This ability makes it so Bryce deals more damage as he loses more and more limbs. So look forward to shooting for additional damage as just a torso and an arm, or rolling Bryce's head around on the floor. The second ability, "Cowardly Word" will simply make Bryce utter more voice over jokes during gameplay. The DLC will come free to players who pre-order the game at select retailers.

Several new screens for Mass Effect 3 as well as a preorder incentive video for Gamestop US

New Mass Effect 3 Screens and Preorder Vid Blast In

Pre-order incentives are the bane of my life; which shop should I purchase my game from if I want the special pink t-shirt?   Most of the time I don't care what I get, just give me the game.  However, a souped-up assault rifle and some power armor may just interest me.  A new video highlighting these extras, plus some new screens, have been released from the Bioware Mass Effect 3 vault 'o' bits.
