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.

Uncharted 3 Beta Adds Co-Op Adventure Mode

Fire up your PlayStation 3's and hop into the Uncharted 3's beta for a taste of the brand new Co-Op Adventure mode which has just been added to the active playlists with the latest update.  The co-op adventure mode is a mode we went hands on with at E3 and greatly enjoyed.  It's a three player local/online mode where Drake and his pal's need to recover some treasure, uncover some secrets, and just generally be cool archeologists.
