Tidalis Patched, Adds Third Player to Local Co-Op

Last year, we reviewed Arcen Games' Tidalis, and we were quite impressed.  It was an editor's choice 5 point review, which we don't give out too terribly often.  One of the most impressive features was the easy drop in/drop out co-op for local play.  Tidalis can be played with either mouse or keyboard, and if someone walks by interested in playing, they can just grab whichever of the two the first player isn't using.  It's a perfectly seamless system, but Arcen wasn't content to rest on their laurels.

New Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime Trailer has Location, Location, Location

A new Ghostbusters game is coming this spring and it has what we want most in a game.  While it may not have the voice cast of 2009's Ghostbusters game, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime has four player co-op both locally and online. This new trailer shows some of the different locations that you'll be vini, vidi, vici-ing in.  The gameplay looks fast and freneti, and no one's face is getting melted off with crossed streams, which is a good thing.  Judging from the above photo there might even be a vehicle element to the game. We'll have more details as they become available.

PSN "11 for 11" Sale Has Co-Op Games for 50% Off

Not to be outdone by the bevy of sales from Microsoft, the PlayStation Network has announced their "11 for 11" sale. That's right, eleven PS3 games for half the price, in honor of 2011.  (Personally, I can't wait for 2099. That sale should be incredible.)  There is a smattering of co-op goodies sprinkled into the lineup, including Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue, HoardSoldner-X2: Final Prototype, Comet Crash, and Shatter.  These offers are only available until the end of the month.  For a full list of pricing and games getting the half off treatment, read on.

LittleBigPlanet 2 Sets Online Records, Suffers Online Problems

LittleBigPlanet 2 is off to an astronomical start.  After scoring solid reviews all around, including our own 5 out of 5, the game has set online records for most users online at a time.  In fact, according to Media Molecule, the number "massively outstrips" LittleBigPlanet 1's record for the same feat.  Detailed numbers weren't given, but you can sign into the game yourself and see the reported player count at anytime - a number Media Molecule expects to double in the coming days and weeks.

Magicka Release Date Announced, New Trailer on Display

I know we've said this before, but this time its really happening.   Magicka has a release date, and that release date is tomorrow - January 25th, 2011.  The four player co-op spell casting action/RPG starring four wizards in robes will be hitting Steam for $10.  The game's concept is simple - players utilize different elemental spells to defeat enemies, but to truly shine, players can combine different elements to create spectacular effects and more powerful spells.  This was something we explored with great interest in our interview for the game.
