Dungeon Defenders Mixes RPG and Tower Defense for Co-Op Goodness

You may remember earlier this year Tally looked at a little game called Dungeon Defense by a company called Trendy Entertainment.  It was a game that mashed RPG elements into the tower defense genre and was developed in only 4 weeks using the Unreal Engine Development Kit.  Today a new version of the game is being announced called Dungeon Defenders - it will be a full digitally distributed title with four player co-op.

Halo Reach Live Action Video Shows the Day Before the Invasion

Ever since Halo 2, Microsoft marketing for the Halo universe has been one of human relation and emotion.  For a sci-fi game that's largely about huge battles between cyborg  like men and aliens with green blood, there's very little human element directly on display in the titles.  Yet, the I Love Bees ad campaign from Halo 2 and the Museum campaign from Halo 3 are amongst the most memorable ads for video games by the emotional response they invoke.

Co-Opticast Episode 49 - PATA PATA PATA PON! PON PON PATA PON!

It's an (almost) all-news episode, since Nick and Mike have to wrap up both Gamescom AND Quakecon, as well as discuss Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (yay) and Kane & Lynch 2 (not so yay). Those rascally Patapons make several guest appearances throughout the podcast. Mike also manages to screw up a news story about Brink preorder bonuses, but it's tough keeping track of such things while being attacked by adorable shadow tribesmen. Outro: Anamanaguchi - Blackout City

Third Brink Dev Diary Blurs the Multiplayer Line

Bethesda and Splash Damage have just released the third (Episode 1 | Episode 2) developer diary for Brink.  The focus is on the lines being blurred between a single player story based game and a cooperative and multiplayer game.  We're told Splash Damage wanted to convey the pacing and story elements of a single player game but extend that to all of Brinks game modes seamlessly.

Halo Reach Officially Offering Co-Op Matchmaking in Every Mode

It was February of this year that we told you that Halo Reach would have full matchmaking support in both Firefight and the co-op campaign.  At the time it was (obviously) unconfirmed.  Now we have official confirmation straight from Bungie's website of what we all hoped for.  A lot of folks missed it due to it being a short and to the point answer in an otherwise giant wall of text.

The RSS Feed and All those Co-Op Games

If you read our site via RSS you may have noticed a sudden influx of co-op game additions to our database.  I know that's not something everyone wants to see - and I'm sorry about that - but we had a backlog of quite a few co-op games that needed to be added to the database and finally got a man on the job after slacking for months.  We get dozens of tips on co-op games a week and we are careful with researching and adding submissions to ensure it's a true co-op experience.
