Meet the lovely ladies of the Angel Squadron

Otomedius Excellent Character Spotlight

Otomedius Excellent is a 3-player co-op shoot-em-up from Konami. Besides carrying on the legacy of the classic Gradius series, the Otomedius games are most noteworthy for their unusual character designs. Rather than serious and masculine fighter pilots, players control a number of anime-style ladies who pilot ships inspired by other Konami titles. Some gamers may look at these flying femmes and exclaim ‘WTF’ letter-by-letter, but that would be missing the point. The girls of Otomedius lend the game a ton of Japanese charm and levity. Each one has her own personality and voice, plus completely different weapon loadouts that instill ample replay value.

Today, we revisit two entries from classic co-op franchises: the deep space R-Type shmups and the swords and sorcery Golden Axe brawlers.

No Reason for Jamestown to E'er be Forgot

Remember, remember the fifth of... well, you know the rest. Indie developer Final Form Games, designer of the spectacular four player co-op 'shmup Jamestown, certainly does. They've announced today on their website that the first DLC for the game will be hitting soon, and it brings with it a new ship and perhap a few other surprises based around the historical event of November 5th...

Our Weekend in Gaming - Oh Hello November Edition

Can you believe it's November already?  We're struggling for air over here at Co-Optimus HQ as we're still completely buried in AWESOME GAMES.    Seriously - why does this happen every year in October and November.  I can't no less than a dozen AAA titles the staff is collectively playing, reviewing, and enjoying.  Well - mostly enjoying - I'm not sure you can call anything you do Dark Souls "enjoyable."

Start Your Weekend With Another Great Saints Row: The Third Video

Saints Row: The Third is at it again. No, your eyes do not deceive you! That's an astronaut riding an ATV with spiked hubcaps through the streets of Steelport. Is he making an obscene gesture to the crowd? Perhaps he's wishing them all a good day? You'll have to watch the video to find out. After seeing this impressive gameplay footage, I think you'll have to agree: Saint's Row: Third is truly the Chardee MacDennis of video games.
