This Skylanders Commercial Makes you Wish you Were 10 Again

The latest trailer for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventures has hit the intertubes.  Shot in a commercial style format, one remincent of what you'd see between Saturday morning cartoons, this trailer makes you wish you were a kid again.  Screw it, I'm still a kid - and I'm totally getting these things when it comes out.

New Dead Island Trailer Is All About the Co-Op

The release of Dead Island is almost upon us, and this latest video has some gooey zombie mayhem to whet your appetite.  The focus of this trailer is co-op, and you can watch the four characters dishing out undead double death.  You'll even get a glimpse at some of the special zombies.  I call the zombie at 1:06 "Lumpy," 1:13 "Stumpy," and 1:23 "Bitey."  You'll see why.  There's also some nice electro weapons thrown into the mix.  I got to play an hour of Dead Island at E3 and was very impressed with what I saw.  It's like a more physical,  juicier version of Left 4 Dead with strong RPG elements.  You'll have a skill tree, craft weapons, and interact with NPC's to get side missions.

Serious Sam 3 Supports 4 Player Split Screen...on a PC!

For some reason a lot of developers don't realize how many people actually want to play split screen on a PC. Perhaps its the growth of home theater PCs, the availability of bigger monitors, or people just plain wanting to play with a some buddies from around the town - every time we see a big PC release we have dozens of users clamoring for split-screen play.  Serious Sam 3: BFE will be bucking the trend and including split-screen play on a PC game.

An Official Post on WH40k: Space Marine Co-Op

There is a great co-op debate going on over at the WH40k Space Marine forums.  An image from a promotional GameStop badge has created more questions than answers.  Let me explain... no, that will take too long.  Let me sum up:  The badge mentions "5 player co-op: Bonus FREE game mode (Day 30 DLC)."  What the hell does that mean?  I'm going to stop you right there.  There has been rampant speculation over this puzzling bit of information.  I've done a little speculating, myself (I'm not proud).  Except now it seems some rumors are being presented as fact.  A new thread popped up on the forums yesterday, and while it may not have all the information we want, it does have concrete information:

Free 2 Play MMO Firefall Video Looks Interesting

A new genre-bending MMO/shooter is coming out this December.  It's called Firefall, and it looks promising.  We've already covered the game's co-op and interviewed  the developers.  We even got our hands on a preview build.   We've liked what we've seen so far. This video shows the game in all of it's massively multiplayer shooter glory.  Firefall can be played in the first or third person perspective, and player skill will greatly influence combat.  It also appears that the lady armor sets are pants-optional.  Giggity, indeed.

This Zombie Apocalypse 2 Trailer is Lame, Noobs

Get ready for some more grisly, zombie-killing, survival action this fall. Another Zombie Apocalypse is fast on track, this time from developer Backbone Entertainment. Zombie Apocalypse 2 will feature the same four-player online/shared screen co-op, but is cranking gameplay depth up a notch - the characters will have more personality as well as class-like abilities, a more worthwhile plot will be conveyed using animated comic strips, and players will be able to upgrade their weapons and attributes.
