Bethesda Answers Why Skyrim Won't Have Co-Op

While Bethesda as a publisher looks to have its biggest year ever for co-op gamers with Brink, Hunted: The Demon's Forge and RAGE - Bethesda's biggest game this year is the one being developed in house.  A continuation of their Elder Scrolls saga, Skyrim is set to release on November 11th of this year on the 360, PS3 and PC.  It's an expansive and open ended RPG that is the fifth game in a series that started on PCs back in 1994.  But despite its PC roots and open ended feel, the Elder Scrolls games have always lacked multiplayer - something fans clamour for with every new game in the series.

CCV Blogs - April Week 3

It's time once again for a Co-Optimus Community Voice update on this, the third weekend in April. It's been a slow month for blog topics, but the medium is picking up. If you don't write for CCV, don't worry - I'll only cry a little bit. I am loving all of the "other" attention going on there, and some great writers as well! This weeks CCV is addressing the Kane and Lynch series of co-op and profane fame.

Moon Diver DLC is Out, More Coming; XBLA Release Dated

New Moon Diver DLC has hit the PSN, assuming you can connect to it.  A new character and mode are available now, and new modes are coming soon.  This isn't budget busting DLC, either.  You may recognize the new character (pictured above).  His name is Silence, and you battle against him several times over the course of the original game.  For a whopping $0.99 you can pick him up, along with a new Score Attack Mode. The Score Attack Mode stage is called "Flow."  It features an ever-scrolling level where players compete for a high score. The mode is single player only, but gained XP carries over to the regular game.

Warhammer 40000: Space Marine Confirms Co-Op, New Screens

The upcoming third-person shooter, Warhammer 40000: Space Marine, has high aspirations.  The video game industry has its fair share of generic "space marines," but 40k enthusiasts will say that they had them first.    Orks are threatening the Imperial Forge World.  WH40k: Space Marine finds players taking control of a beefy, armored, death machine named Captain Titus.  It's your job to killify any and all threats to the Imperium of Man.  VG24/7 had a recent interview with WH40k: Space Marine developer, Relic.  In the lengthy interview they discuss things such as staying true to 40k lore, going up against Gears of War 3, and the lack of a cover system (Space marines don't need no stinkin' cover system).

New Video For Dungeon Siege 3's Anjali, Co-op Detailed (Again)

The last vignette from Dungeon Siege 3 focuses on one of the earliest revealed characters, Anjali, the Archon. She's a staff-wielding sorceress that can take on a fire elemental form.  I had the chance to play through an early level with her and Lucas Montbarron at an Obsidian event a few months ago.  The two characters complimented each other nicely.  Lucas's strong attacks benefited from Anjali's ranged assault in co-op play.
