Castle Crashers Hits 2 Million Players on Xbox LIVE

The excellently awesome Castle Crashers has reached a gaming milestone.  The Xbox LIVE arcade title hit 2 million players on the leaderboards over Christmas weekend.  That's not including PSN players.  For those of you who don't know, 'excellently' awesome is the sixth highest level of awesome.  It only gets awesomer from there!  Official* Top Five Awesome Rankings from least to greatest: incredibly, fantastically, moderately (weird, I know) , co-operatively, and finally, epically. Awesomely awesome is the worst level of awesome, for obvious reasons (If you're oblivious to the obvious, see inverse ninja thoery.)

In Diablo 3, Monsters Co-Op Against You!

It's been almost a year and a half since Diablo 3 was announced, and in all these months, our desire for the game has not lessened one bit.  The previous Diablo games were amazing to play through in co-op, and we're sure that trend will continue for the upcoming sequel.  Of course, we're talking about players cooperating and working together through teamwork.  But wouldn't it be something if the monsters used cooperative tactics against players?

Looks like Microsoft and Epic want some of that gargantuan holiday sales money games like Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops earned this year.

War in the North Website Gets a New Look

In the craziness of the holidays, you may have missed the launch of the new LotR: War in the North website. The site's homepage makes it a lot easier to see what's new content-wise on the site as well as adding some lore sections just waiting to be filled with Tolkieny goodness. We've kind of caught the notion that you guys are excited about this game, whether it's because it's made from the the same folks who brought us the classic Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, or because it will feature mixed split-screen and online co-op, or simply because you like how it looks, it seems like everyone's clamoring for more information on this game. We're just on the edge of 2011, which can't come soon enough if it means we'll get this game in our hands sooner!

Rumor Mill: Tomb Raider Multiplayer? Competitive or Co-Op?

Earlier this month, Game Informer revealed the new Lara Croft for the Tomb Raider re-boot.  The game will feature a young Lara who is shipwrecked and must hone her skills to survive in a hostile environment.  This will be-wait for it-an origin story.  Everyone loves an origin story, right?  I hope she wins a pod race and has mommy issues.  She looks like the brain child of Michael Bay and Eli Roth: sweaty, filthy, brutalized and jail-bait-y.  It should sell a billion copies.
