Minimalists are invited to join in as well, but the CCV blogger of the week is far from it.

Could Bloodrayne Betrayal Have Co-Op?

As E3 approaches, the tidal wave of new game information is pouring out all over the internet.  Amid the onslaught comes news of a new Bloodrayne game, but different than the series' third person action roots.  Bloodrayne Betrayal is coming to XBLA and PSN, and it's a sweet looking 2D brawler.  The announcement trailer for the game, found at the game's official site, shows off a slick artistic style with over-the-top blood spurting all over the place.

Gamestop's "Dead Island Special Edition" Has Co-op Preorder Incentive

Have you preordered upcoming zombie survival game Dead Island yet? If so, is the retailer Gamestop? If it isn't, you may want to reconsider your options. Gamestop has the exclusive rights to the Dead Island Special Edition which is a fancy name for a pre-order bonus. For a limited time and while supplies last, preorders at Gamestop will be automatically upgraded to the special edition which will score you the Bloodbath Arena DLC ($10 value) for free and before any of your friends. The DLC offers a new arena mode for the game available in both single-player and co-op. Players will battle off waves of zombies where each wave increases in difficulty (sound familar?). You'll be able to bring back the XP and items back to your campaigns, which is pretty sweet. Also provided in the DLC is the exclusive weapon, the brain wave bomb. For those who do not preorder from Gamestop, the Bloodbath Arena DLC will be available for purchase shortly after Dead Island's release. The Dead Island Special Edition will also feature exclusive box art and a blueprint for a special weapon, the "Ripper," which I'm told is the offspring of a baseball bat and a buzz saw.

X-Men Arcade Mutating iPhones and iPads

One of the finest co-op beat 'em ups of all time, X-Men Arcade, is coming to a phone near you.  The mutant slugfest is now available for iOS devices, for the relatively low price of a dozen quarters ($2.99).  Multiplayer is supported for up to four players, and leaderboards and Facebook integrations round out the game's mutant abilities.  The game is only compatible with third gen and beyond devices, so iPhone 3G users are out of luck.  It's great to see more and more classic games available on a variety of platforms these days!
