Because Someone's Always Hogging the TV During the Holidays

Co-Optimus 2011 Holiday Buyer's Guide PC Edition

Sure, you could buy some co-op game for the PS3, Xbox 360, or (insert other generic console here), but c'mon! We both know the truth. We both know that what you really want is a game on a platform where you can tweak those graphics all the way to 11; a platform that holds no illusions about install times, patches, or updates. Staffers Mike "pheriannath" Katsufrakis and Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love are here to point you towards the best hardware and software on which to drop some holiday green.

An new image suggest that many of the DC cannon will appear in LEGO Batman 2

DC Heroes Come to LEGO Batman's Rescue

As a superhero, Batman is a bit of a loner.  Except for Alfred.  And Robin.  And Batgirl, Oracle, Commissioner Gordon, the Justice League.  It appears that Batman is no loner at all, he loves to be surrounded by friends and family (as long as he has an up to date dossier of how to destroy them should they turn rogue).  A new image suggests that LEGO Batman is no different and that LEGO Batman 2 may contain more DC heroes than any one supervillain can handle.

Join Co-Optimus for Three Co-Op Nights in December

I love the holiday season, don't you? All the hot games are out so there's plenty of fun to be had, everyone is in the holiday spirit, and we all burn the last of our vacation only to spend it at home. Plus it's so freakin' cold that you don't want to leave the house. Alright, well maybe that's just a problem for us Northerners. Wherever you happen to live, you're welcome encouraged to join us for three (3) co-op nights this December. Yes, you read that correctly, three (3) co-op nights in a month. Are we crazy? Probably, but that just makes our co-op nights even more enjoyable.

CCV Blog Wrap-up for November

We've had a busy November with new releases, but a fair number of you managed to sneak in a blog for this month's CCV topic: Collectors Editions. Maybe the swanky Lord of the Rings: War in the North Collectors Edition had something to do with it. Regardless, let's take a look at a couple recent entries.

Mass Effect 3 Collector's Edition Details

Gamestop has posted details on the Mass Effect 3 Collector's Edition.  It will cost you $80 smackers and net you a nice selection of physical and digital swag.  I didn't see anything that was specifically for the co-op mode, but there's still some nice items, including a lithograph of the Normandy, a robotic dog, as well as the obligatory art book and metal case. Collector's Editions are all the rage right now.  Will you be picking it up?

Dead Island Wishes You a Merry Xmas With A Calendar Contest

Today Deep Silver announced a special Christmas Promotion for the excellent four player co-op survival title, Dead Island.  I don't really know what dismembering reanimated corpses has to do with Christmas, but let's just go with it.  They recently launched a new website that will have some sort of macabre daily calender offering up new contests that will allow gamers to explore Dead Island, "putting their knowledge of both the game and international zombie lore in general to the test."  I have no idea how this is going to work, but I'm curious.

Co-Optimus 2011 Holiday Buyer's Guide Nintendo Wii and DS Edition

It's been a rough year for fans of Nintendo's console and handhelds as the Nintendo Wii is on its way out to make way for the WiiU and the Nintendo DS saw itself replaced by the 3DS - which wasn't quite the product most were hoping for. With that in mind if you REALLY have someone that wants a Wii for the holidays, that's about the only way we can recommend getting one at this point for co-op gaming. Of course, this still a lot of Nintendo goodness to get!

Konami have launched the new Birds of Steel website and some new screen shots of the game

Chocks Away with the new Birds of Steel Website and Screens

Wotwot, By Jove and Tally Ho!  It is so rare nowadays that I get to trot out my Gentlemen English.  The type of language that our brave boys used to use when flying in the Great Wars; a cigarette in one hand, a glass of sherry in the other and still enough skill to shoot down the enemy using only their thighs to steer.  You can relive this experience in the upcoming Birds of Steel.  A new website has launched for the game, along with some new screenshots.
