League of Legends Adding Co-Op Mode

League of Legends developer Riot Games have announced a brand new game more for their game featuring co-op play.  League of Legends is based on, and developed by some of the team that create a mod for Warcraft 3 called Defense of the Ancients.  This psuedo RTS/RPG hybrid features a champion character that summons creatures, uses spells and items, as well as other ablities to conquer opposing champions.  The game is as much strategy as it is action, and loot plays a big part in the addictive nature of the gameplay.

Beware of the Big Fish in the latest Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One Trailer

Insomniac has just released a brand new trailer for Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One - the four player co-op platformer set to hit the PlayStation 3 later this year.  The trailer showcases some great co-op action in both platforming, puzzles, and gigantic boss battles.  Seriously, it's going to take at least 4 players to bring in a fish of that size - sushi for everyone!

Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale Detailed by Developers

I don’t know about you guys, but I used to enjoy my Friday night get-together with my friends to play a bit of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop style. As we’ve grown older and had jobs and responsibilities, it’s been tougher to get together. We’ve often wondered “Why hasn’t a digital version of this come out for us?” And now our questions have been answered. Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale plans to do just that - bring Dungeons and Dragons to us in a digital format this Spring.

Launch Trailer for Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 - Out Today

The sequel to the reboot of the Capcom classic, Bionic Commando, is due out this week. The original game was best known for its bionic form of locomotion and unforgiving difficulty.   Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 launches today on the PlayStation Network, though as of this writing, it's not up on the PSN Store. It is scheduled to hit the Xbox LIVE Arcade tomorrow.  Whichever Marketplace, Store, or flea market gets the game up first will receive my fifteen bucks (or 1200 Microsoft points). Two players can co-op locally as Nathan "Rad" Spencer.

TimeSplitters 4 is Still a Possibility

Very shortly before shutting its doors and getting bought by Crytek, studio Free Radical Design had announced TimeSplitters 4, the next title in its flagship series. The shuttering put TimeSplitters 4 on permanent hiatus until further notice. Not only was this a blow to co-op fans (as TimeSplitters games have traditionally been very co-op friendly), but also to me personally - the comp-stomping vaperware Star Wars Battlefront III had been rumored to follow shortly behind, a game that to this day is my very own holy grail.

Catching up with Interstellar Marines

While the focus of Co-Optimus has always been on cooperative gaming, we also like to look at cooperative efforts surrounding gaming as well.  One of these unique stories is the independent and slightly community developed Interstellar Marines by Zero Point Software.  What makes Interstellar Marines so unique is that not it's four player co-op first person shooter, but one that is being almost completely community funded and driven.  Also it has space sharks.

Hunted: the Demon's Forge Details the Wargar Enemy Type

A recent dev diary for Hunted: the Demon's Forge detailed some in-depth specifics of the Wargar enemy type for the upcoming two player co-op action game. Most actions games have a type of enemy that is common and pervasive throughout most of the game. The Wargar take that role in Hunted. Far from being uniform, however, the Wargar come in three flavors: melee, ranged, and caster; furthermore, there are different classes within these standard roles. Melee Wargar are composed of Soldiers, Warriors, Guardians, and Zealots, Ranged Wargar can either be Archers, Scorchers, or Blastcasters, while the Infected are the only Caster Wargar.
