Blood Rayne is Back

Majesco's Blood Rayne franchise is being resurrected as a downloadable title.  The company has recently announced Blood Rayne: Betrayal, which will be a 2D platformer, according to Eurogamer.net.  This will be change from what was a third-person action game filled with over-the-top gore and innuendo.  According to the press release,  "Rayne teams up with a mysterious new friend to stop an evil vampire massacre."  Does this mean co-op play?  Hopefully.  You can check out a new teaser trailer after the break.  Warning!  The trailer won't reveal much of anything.  Blood Rayne: Betrayal will release on the XBLA and PSN later this summer.

Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 4.11.2011

Looking for a new game to brighten your day? Nothing catching your eye?  The second week of April may not be known for its blockbuster releases, but you can still get your new game on.  This week has a little hack in slash, a little rhythm, and a little tower defense.  Oh yeah, and one of my favorite Atari 2600 games has been remade as an anime-style shooter, but I'm not bitter about it.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel Devs - Co-Op a "Must-Have Feature"

The publisher of Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is backpedaling hard from its statements two years ago; once quick to attack the effect of co-op on a game's plot, Ubi has whipped the cart around and tried to make good with co-op fans.

Onechanbara Special Brings Boots, Blades, and Bikini Babes to Your PSP

It's not often we cover games that have only been released in Japan, but in this case, we'll make an exception. The Onechanbara series made it to American shores in 2009, with releases for Xbox 360 and, oddly enough, Wii.  The formula for Onechanbara seems to be tough girls skimpy outfits zombies cool moves co-op - your brain.  Our review of the 360 release didn't pull any punches: it wasn't very good.  Still, there must be a market for cowgirls in bikinis wielding swords to decapitate the undead, and so D3 published Onechanbara Special for PSP.
