The Cursed Crusade Co-Op Demo Available Now

We usually don't make too big a deal about demos, unless of course, they have co-op.  The Cursed Crusade demo supports local co-op and is available now on Xbox Live.  It should be on the PS3 soon.  Through the magic of the internet I have played the demo while writing this sentence.  It's cheese-tastic and fun, and more importantly, the game was made with co-op in mind.  You even can switch the split screen from vertical to horizontal!  We'll have a full review when the game comes out later this month.

Happy Feet 2 is Dancing Your Way November 8th

I've been overdosing on death and destruction.  Time to see what we have in the shallow end.  Hello, what do we have here?  A kiddy rhythm game tied into a kiddy movie?  What a novel idea!  Happy Feet 2: The Video Game will be toe-tapping it's way onto consoles latter this fall to coincide with the film's release.  The first movie was a fun little jaunt.  No, Morgan Freeman didn't narrate it.  That was the other penguin movie.  Players will take on the roles of Mumble and Ramon, working cooperatively to solve puzzles.

New Trailer for Binary Domain Has Consequences

We haven't heard much from Binary Domain since our time with the game at E3.  This new trailer has plenty of gameplay footage, and features the game's "Consequence" system.  Apparently, your AI partners will cop an attitude with you if you ask them to do things that will get them killed.  The game has a unique voice control system which allows you to command your squad mates as you battle to save future Tokyo from psychotic robots.  Who here thought future Tokyo wouldn't have psychotic robots?

F1 2011 Co-Op Currently Broken - a Co-Optimus Investigation

Some of you may have been wondering where Co-Optimus' co-op review is for the now 3 week old F1 2011. Due to some game breaking issues in the co-op championship mode, the game is borderline unplayable with a pal. After the first game patch failed to solve the problems, Co-Optimus put on its investigation hat, exploration trousers and inquisitive undies to find out what was going on with the game and if a fix is being released.
