Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Co-Op Review

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is one of the most unusual games I've ever played. It is much more than just a game; it is a media juggernaut including a toyline, an adventure game on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii, a platformer for the 3DS, and even a light MMO on the PC or Mac. The various components work together seamlessly due to the innovative design of the toys themselves. It is incredibly polished, and it's clear that careful thought was given to even the smallest details.

Saints Row: The Third - Initiation Station Video, Plus Two More Cherished Memories

The Saints Row: The Third Initiation Station is in its beta phase.  What the hell is an "initiation station?"  Why it's an honest to goodness character creator!  Of course, there is a Saints Row twist.  You can see what the community has come up with right here.  Yup.  That's happening.  Not only can you customize your character, you can also give them some obscene gestures!  I think "Pillow Princess" may get my vote for "the most awkward gesture to view in polite company," but there are many others that are just as bad.

Check Out Cyborg Frank West in this Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Video

Nice face, Frank.  If you're sick of looking at Frank West's ugly mug and want to get your Tetsuo: Iron Man on, you're in luck.  The Cyborg Skills Pack DLC was announced last week and is available NOW.  It gives you a sleek T-800 look and some nice electric effects like that lightning guy had in Big Trouble in Little China.   By the way, Frank is definitely probing a zombie at the end of the video.  Awesome?

Mass Effect 3 Hands On Co-Op Impressions

It was the on again, off again, rumor of 2011. Mass Effect 3 will be getting co-op. It won’t be getting co-op. The fact of the matter is - Mass Effect 3 will have a co-op mode, I’ve seen it and I’ve played it, and it’s good.  The entire co-op campaign is part of a larger system called The Galaxy at War.  While the details to this are still completely under wraps it appears that doing certain extra things like playing co-op, participating in a social game, or other similar things can effect what happens during the ending sequences of Mass Effect 3 much like doing the loyalty missions in Mass Effect 2 effected the ending of that game.

Space Marine Co-Op DLC Delayed on 360

Ok, so we kind of lied yesterday.  When we said that Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's DLC would be up shortly on the Xbox 360, we actually meant - well - we didn't know exactly what shortly mean.  According to an official post on the Space Marine forums, Relic found a bug in the title update/DLC that caused connection issues in co-op on the 360 version causing them to pull it at the last minute.
