Sordahon's Journey Concludes with a Mullet Induced Ballad

Two Worlds 2's Sordahon has had one heck of a journey on his quest to become the number one bad guy in the game.  With a January release for the 8 player co-op title right around the corner, it seems his journey is coming to a close.  With such an epic road behind him, the conclusion to this quest can only be accomplished in one manor - with an 80s inspired musical number.

Hoard Co-Op Review

Hoard is a variety of things we come to adore in arcade titles. It’s part dual stick shooter, part leveling RPG, part strategy, and even a dash of co-op that we so adore on the side. Even with all of those elements the gameplay is fairly straight forward and simple enough to learn for many players.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for November 2010

November has come and gone, and once again, it was one of the busiest months for gaming.  We had almost 20 new co-op games released, 11 of which we reviewed.  Black Ops was the biggest story of the month, garnering in millions of buyers and thousands of visitors to Co-Optimus looking for the latest cooperative info on the title.  Thing should calm down for December, allowing you time to catch up on gaming and spending time with the family over the holidays...hopefully playing co-op games.

Blizzard Hiring for Diablo-ish Console Game?

A couple of weeks ago Gamasutra.com mentioned a few postings on the Blizzard Entertainment Job Directory concerning console developers for Diablo 3 .  A few weeks before that someone at Co-Optimus (me) posted an article decrying the lack of Diablo 3 on consoles.  Well, it looks like I may have to eat my words.  Sort of.  Maybe.  Probably not.

Dead Nation Launches Tomorrow, Discounted for PlayStation Plus Subscribers, New Videos

Dead Nation has been on our radar for awhile now.  From the game's announcement over a year ago, to the premiere trailer at E3, this top-down co-op zombie shooter looks fantastic.  When we heard that the expected two player local co-op was being upgraded to feature online play, we had to talk to the game's developer to find out what inspired the change.  Housemarque CEO, Ilari Kuittinen, gave Co-Optimus an interview explaining the decisions that went into adding online co-op support.  Ilari's comments got us even more excited about the coming zombie apocalypse.
