Rainbow 6: Patriots Info and Artwork Abseils In

A typical conversation between Ubisoft and Co-Optimus goes like this; "What do you want?" - Information. "Who is Rainbow 1?" - you are Rainbow 6.  "Co-Optimus is not a number, we are free men!" We may consider ourselves free and not Prisoners, but we would still like more information on the upcoming Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots and some artwork if you please?  Ubisoft have duly obliged.

NFL Blitz is Back, Video Features Local and Online Co-Op

The NFL Blitz franchise has been resurrected by EA Sports.  A video promoting the revamped series was posted on Youtube last month (see below).  The title will feature all of the crazy gameplay the series was known for, including flaming players, wrestling-style tackles, as well as teams made up of zombies and robots.  Best of all, it won't break your wallet.  The game will feature all 32 NFL teams in a nice $15 dollar (or 1200 MSP) downloadable package.

Today, we continue our look back at two video game consoles released one decade ago. Last week, we covered Microsoft's first console, the Xbox, and its most notable innovation to co-op, online play through Xbox Live. But the Xbox wasn't the only console to arrive in stores in time for the holiday shopping season in 2001. NIntendo's GameCube hit the shelves on November 18 of that year, and brought some excellent cooperative experiences to gamers that were unavailable on any other system.
