New Dark Souls Screens Bring the Armor and Atmosphere

We just got a handful of new screens for the co-op friendly and impossibly difficult Dark Souls.  The screens show off a variety of environments and characters - all clad in medieval style armor and weapons.  Some screens show off the co-op action where the players are facing some truly frightening looking creatures of ridiculous size.  There's no doubt in my mind this game is going to be difficult - but it may just be incredibly rewarding.

MLB 11 The Show Co-op Mode Details

The MLB The Show series is a popular baseball game series for the Playstation, often praised for its high polish and eye for detail. Past installments have only included single-player and multi-player modes, but upcoming MLB 11 The Show will contain a 2-player online or offline co-op mode as well! This mode will have players on the same team where they can choose who is responsible for the different offensive and defensive areas. In the field, there are four different controllable areas players can divy up: pitcher, catcher, infield, and outfield. Pitcher can either be assigned to one player all the time or can alternate between players every inning.

XBLA Deals Include Star Trek and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

You've gotta love the weekly sales for Xbox Live Arcade Gold members.  Well, to be precise, if you have a Gold account, you have to love them, I guess.  Generally, the deal of the week is well advertised, but sometimes, games are discounted without much hoopla.  That is the case today with a few movie-related games, three of which feature co-op.  These hidden deals are Turtles in Time: Reshelled for 400 points (totally worth it), TMNT The Arcade Game for 200 points (definitely worth it), and Star Trek D-A-C for 400 points (probably still not worth it).  Both Turtles games are excellent examples of brawlers, and the graphic overhaul on Reshelled is quite nice.  The Star Trek title, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired, as you can read about in our review.  There's no telling when these deals will expire, so grab them now while you have the chance!
