That DLC, entitled Spunky Cola Special Free DLC, launches tomorrow, packed with new arenas, private game options, balance tweaks, and yes, oh yes, churros!

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.

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.

Xbox Live On Demand Games Demand Compatibility

My still reigning co-op favorite shooter Rainbow Six Vegas 2 has come under fire this holiday weekend due to an unexpected - and unpleasant - surprise. It turns out that Vegas 2 and other titles featured on Xbox Live's Games on Demand service may or may not be compatible with their disc-based brothers. The worst part? There's no way to tell without buying and trying...and if your gamble doesn't pay off, Microsoft still will not give you a refund nor credit.
