The Nyko Zoom Reduces Kinect Gameplay Space Requirements

One of our biggest complaints about Microsoft's Kinect peripheral is the huge amount of living room real estate required to play.  You need a pretty big area if you want  to co-op a game.  The Nyko Zoom reduces this required space by up to 40%, so now you can play Dance Central in your cubicle!  You know you want to.  The three lens design is sleek and simple.  Snap the device into place and you're ready to go.

Ms. Splosion Man Co-Op Review

Never in my life did I ever think I’d hear three grown men complain about wanting a pair of shoes more than I heard during a co-op session of Ms. Splosion Man. The game takes the tried and true formula from the first Splosion Man title, adds a ton of polish to itself, and gives it a unique twist.

Valve Throws Down a Gauntlet, Gamers Pick It Up

Good work, survivors!  Last Wednesday, Valve had an interesting proposal for the Left 4 Dead 2 community.  If 20,000 people could earn the "Stream Crosser" achievement by the end of Sunday, July 10th, Valve would go ahead and release the Dead Air campaign a little early.  It took players less than 24 hours.  Much less.  It actually took about four and a half hours for gamers to hit the benchmark. (Way to skew the curve, guys.)

F1 2011 to Feature Local and Online Co-Op, Plus a Shiny New Video

Some new details have emerged for F1 2011's co-op campaign.  It's rare enough to find a racing game with co-op, but F1 2011 has something in store for online and local racers.  Yes, you can play a whole season with a teammate both online or locally via split screen.  Now you can get your "Shake and Bake" on in the same room.  Just remember to let your teammate win sometimes.  If you don't, he may just steal your woman, your house, and all your sponsorships.  Then you'll end up hanging out with Bill Lumbergh, who will force you to drive blindfolded while fighting a damn mountain lion, all in a desperate attempt to get your confidence back.  Or not.  Maybe that only happens in NASCAR.

Dead Island Pre-Order Bonus at Amazon is Artsy

I'm a sucker for video game concept art.  I find it beautiful, inspiring, and intriguing.  If I was a rich man I'd have a gallery and purchase pieces from my favorite games to have on display in it.  So with that I was pretty excited to hear that Dead Island, the four player co-op action/RPG that won our E3 Co-Op Game of Show, would offer a digital art book with pre-orders from Amazon.  Something far more worthwhile IMO than "exclusive" in game items.
