Okabu Co-Op Review

You may have heard little whisperings about Okabu, like how it’s a pro-environment game, or how it sports a cutesy artstyle. Or this PSN-exclusive game’s release last week may have quietly slipped under you radar. Whether you have some invested interest in the game or if this is the first time you’ve heard much about it, we’re here to give you the verdict in our Co-Op Review.

The latest DLC is available for Dungeon Siege 3 entitled Treasures of the Sun

Help, Mummy! Dungeon Siege III DLC out Now

Some of the best co-op experiences come as a surprise and this was the case with Dungeon Siege 3. Despite the issues with the camera and co-op experience, it was still really fun game. However, it lacked something - mummies. This oversight has now been resolved with the newly released Treasures of the Sun DLC available across all platforms.

Otomedius Excellent Officially Coming on November 1, Collector's Edition Detailed

We first played Otomedius Excellent, Konami’s 2.5D shoot-em-up, at this year's E3 convention. Since then, Konami has steadily updated the game’s Facebook page but hasn’t otherwise spoken about the game too much. This has been mostly due to a few delays as they worked hard on preparing the English version of the game for release. Retailers Amazon and GameStop have been playing the guessing game with Otomedius’ release date, giving it a November 1 placeholder release date. Co-Optimus has some good news for shmup fans today: Konami has informed us that the November 1 release date is now official!

Sumo Couple Co-Op Review

We don't often do reviews for anything but games here at Co-Optimus. Sure, we cover new game systems when they are released, and the occasional accessory like a headset or keyboard. When Nick asked me if I'd be interested in doing a review for a bean bag, I was certainly surprised, but definitely interested. The kind folks at Sumo sent the perfect model for a site dedicated to co-op gaming: the Couple, with room for two.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Launch Trailer

Hey look!  It's the official Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launch trailer!  Isn't it nice to see a little game like this getting some exposure?  It looks like a mean old terrorist is up to no good, and it's up to you to stop him.  With bullets.  Probably to his face area.  Let's not kid ourselves here.  You are buying this game, whether you want to or not.  I don't want to play MW3 at all, but I'm literally pre-ordering it in another window as I'm typing this.  You can do the same thing when you watch the trailer!  Use this link and help support Co-Optimus!

A Trio of Increasingly Awesome Videos for The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

Okay, I'll admit it.  I've posted a lot of videos covering The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut, and to be honest with you, I haven't been that impressed by them.  I've always enjoyed the House of the Dead franchise, and I loved the direction the series took in The House of the Dead: Overkill for the Wii.  The previous videos for the PS3 exclusive Extended Cut version just don't pack the same punch.  Take a look and see what I mean.  Oh, and keep reading, because this is going to be awesome.  Promise.  There's gonna be boobs and stuff.

BattleBlock Theater Trailer Demonstrates Grenades with Friends

The Behemoth's games are certainly known for their rather unique sense of humor, solid gameplay, and fun co-operative action. BattleBlock Theater, the developer's latest and greatest, matches all three of those descriptors by placing you and your friends in the shoes of shipwrecked prisoners that are forced to perform in a kind of theater in order to gain their freedom. The prisoners and gameplay have been highlighted in a series of videos, and the latest shows off Prisoner #10304 and his fondness for things that go boom.

Portal 2 In-game Level Editor Coming Next Year

The first Portal 2 downloadable content, ‘Peer Review,’ added a new challenge mode and co-op levels. Valve has just announced a second DLC that doesn’t seem to include new levels, per se. Instead, it will bring a full-on in-game level editor. The thought of cooperatively designing levels with a partner is certainly enticing.

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Co-Op Review

It's amazing what a little time can do to your perspective of things. When I founded Co-Optimus a game like Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster wouldn’t have even been on my radar - I was a man that cared more about the next Halo then I did about the next casual or kids title. But now as the father of a two and a half year old girl, Once Upon a Monster instantly appealed to me as a way to entertain her and enjoy something with her, without having to watch another episode of The Fresh Beat Band.

Remember to Update your Video Drivers for Battlefield 3

Did you stay up to the wee hours of the morning waiting to unlock Battlefield 3?  If not, now is a good time to remind you that you'll want to update your graphics drivers on your PC for the game.  Both AMD and NVIDIA have released optimized versions of their drivers for DICE's Frostbite 2 engine.  I put a solid 3 hours into the campaign last night on my PC armed with a GeForce GTX 580 on all Ultra settings and the latest drivers.  The game is drop dead gorgeous for sure and makes serious use of lighting effects with some really slick texture details.
