Fable 3: Three Breeds for Three Bucks, Yule Hats Free

I was playing the new Superhero Squad game with my son last night, and noticed that there was already DLC available for the relatively new release.  Said DLC consisted of a trio of playable characters: Captain America, Bucky, and the Red Skull.  My initial reactions were "What?  No Cap in the main game?  Outrageous!" followed by "240 MS points for that?  A dollar a character?  Seems pretty steep for a kiddie game to me."

Want to Play the Hattori Clan in Shogun 2? The Limited Edition's Got You Covered

Today developer Creative Assembly announced details for the two different North America editions of Shogun 2: Total War. There will be two available editions: the Standard Edition (the core game experience) and the Limited Edition. The Limited Edition will score you a unique playable faction (the Hattori Clan), an additional battle scenario ("Nagashino"), a full set of armor for your online avatar, and a starting bank of XP to spend on your online character. Well now doesn't that sound fancy? Now you have the option of making your Standard Edition buddies jealous as they watch your shiny Hattori Clan units strutting around on the battlefield during your fully cooperative campaign sessions.

Aliens: Colonial Marines News Getting Ready to Face Hug in 2011

By my math, Aliens: Colonial Marines was announced almost a full three years ago.  Co-Optimus was only a month old at the time but it was something we immediately knew would be special.  What we didn't realize is it would be special not because its an incredible looking four player co-op title based in the Aliens universe, but because of the ups and downs of its path to existence.

This Week In Co-Op: Didn't Happen, Connectivity Issues To Blame

So it’s time for another round of co-op gaming. Since we were both in the mood for some manly men accompanied by some hot, chainsaw on Locust action, Katrina and I were looking to go old school with a little Gears of War 2. I don’t know if it actually meets the definitions of ‘old school,’ but let’s just say it hasn’t been spinning in my machine lately.

Section 8: Prejudice Set for Q1 Release, Priced at $15! Plus, Swarm Mode Video

Last month, with a little help from Eurogamer.net, we detailed the new 4 player co-op "Swarm Mode" for Section 8: Prejudice, the sequel to the drop-trooper-shooter, "Section 7: Pride".  What's that?  I am being told that the first game was simply titled: Section 8.  That's a shame.  The next logical step would have been of course, "Section 9: And Zombies."  But that's neither here nor there.
