iOS Game Tilt to Live Gets "Viva la Co-Op" Mode

As Apple's iPhone and iPad get more and more games, it's only natural that more and more co-op titles are in the mix.  One such game, adding in a co-op mode via expansion, is Tilt to Live.  As you can tell from the screenshot above, Tilt to Live has a definite Geometry Wars feel to it.  And believe me when I say, that is a very good thing.  The new expansion, appropriately titled "Viva la Co-Op", allows for two players to connect via local wi-fi or Bluetooth.  One player controls the motion of the ship, while the other is in charge of the turret itself.  Tilt to Live will set you back $2.99, and the expansion clocks in at an affordable 99 cents.  Check out the trailer below.

Gears of War 3 to be Loaded with Easter Eggs

The first "Easter Egg" was coined after a hidden message was left in the game Adventure on Atari in 1979.  It was named such after the Easter holiday where people would give elaborate and often expensive eggs that contained a hidden surprise inside.  Easter eggs are a big part of gaming today, with many games giving references to modern day events, nods to other games, or hiding pictures of the developers buried deep in a level.  Gear of War 3 designer Cliff Bleszinski thinks the hidden gems are not only fun, but could help promote and draw attention to a game.
