APOX on Thee - Survival Mode For All!

Indie strategy game APOX just released a few short weeks ago, boasting impressive 16-player comp-stomp on the co-op side of things along with single-player and competitive multi-player options as well. Now players will have another co-op option for the game as a survival mode was added just last week. Available in both single-player and co-op, players will have to defend their base for a whole 25 minutes as relentless waves of enemies swarm in. Players can enjoy this mode on not one, not two, but SIX new maps. Pretty nice for a free game update.

LittleBIGPlanet 2 Move DLC Adds More Levels to 3.6 Million Now Available

How many levels are enough?  If a game had 1 million levels available, would that suffice?  Or would 2 million be better?  How about 3.6 million?  That's how many levels are currently available in LittleBIGPlanet 2, counting all the user created levels as well as those on disc.  It would take over 6 years to play them all, if you spent one minute per level and didn't do anything unimportant like sleep, eat, or use the bathroom.  Impressive, eh?

Total War: Shogun 2 Trailer Is Suitably Epic

We've got another trailer for you today, this one for Total War: Shogun 2.  This trailer doesn't feature any gameplay at all, but is really sweet and totally worth a watch anyway.  I learned a couple things watching the video.  1, apparently the weather changes very quickly in Japan.  2, the historical Japanese quivalent of "don't bring a knife to a gun fight" is "don't bring a katana to a longbow fight".  Shogun 2 releases on PC next month, and will feature two player online or LAN co-op.

Age of Empires Online: Free To Play, Co-op Quests Included

The MMO playing model has moved away from a lot of the pay-to-play aspect - that is to say, they’ve been largely moving away from the monthly subscription fee. Instead it looks like games like the upcoming Age of Empires Online will only cost money if you really want that premium experience. Players of a casual persuasion and the hardcore crowd will be able to play together to complete the games co-op quests in an MMO/RTS environment, all without restriction.

Our Weekend in Gaming - Abracadabra Edition

It seems the majority of the staff is hooked on Magicka and with good reason.  There's just something addictive about its co-op action and spell weaving - and something satisfying about exploding trolls into tiny bits.  Also shrubberies.

Dark Souls Will Have More Co-op "Variations"

Demon's Souls was an unapologetically tough game. Director Hidetaka Miyazaki promises that Its spiritual successor, Dark Souls, won't be any easier. One thing that may be different, however, is the game's co-op potential. For those of you who haven't had the chance to play Demon's Souls, the game had a unique co-op mode. At certain points within the levels players could summon other players into their game to help them out if they were stuck at a particularly tricky spot. The summoned players would have to have previously flagged themselves in order to be able to be sucked in to another person's world and would appear as ghostly heroes. They would have to be within 10 levels of the host player. From a single-player perspective, this system could be pretty cool. From a co-op perspective, it was an absolute nightmare. The game was not set up so that friends could easily play together - that wasn't the point of this unique co-op mode.
