New Pics Illuminate Demon Souls' Spiritual Successor: Dark Souls

Gluttons for punishment rejoice!  Hardcore title Demon's Souls is getting a sequel, or at the very least, a soul-crushingly difficult spiritual successor.  Dark Souls is being developed by From Software, the same company that created the original Demon's Souls.  It appears that the world will be a single sprawling area, instead of using a "hub" as in the previous title.  Characters will not be shoehorned into a class upon creation, allowing for gamers to explore different play styles.  It appears that the messaging system and co-op style of Demon's Souls will be intact, while the story from this game is unrelated to the previous entry.  How many players will be supported is still unknown.

League of Legends Adding Co-Op Mode

League of Legends developer Riot Games have announced a brand new game more for their game featuring co-op play.  League of Legends is based on, and developed by some of the team that create a mod for Warcraft 3 called Defense of the Ancients.  This psuedo RTS/RPG hybrid features a champion character that summons creatures, uses spells and items, as well as other ablities to conquer opposing champions.  The game is as much strategy as it is action, and loot plays a big part in the addictive nature of the gameplay.
