Section 8: Prejudice Co-op "Swarm Mode" Detailed

It wasn't all that long ago that I checked out a wonderful shooter title called Section 8 which was a lot of fun, but did not have a co-op mode at the time. It's nice to see that the developers thought the same thing I did - this game needs buddies. The sequel Section 8: Prejudice will have its own 4 player co-op mode to allow players to bring along a few friends. The developer blog has recently unveiled the "Swarm Mode" co-op mode.

Over a Year Later, Spelunker HD Finally Arrives

Over a year ago we brought you news of Spelunker HD, the umpteenth re-release or re-imaging of the original Spelunker.  This game has been available in Japan for some time (over a year), so it's nice that it is finally making it stateside.  If you do not know what the word 'spelunker' means, do yourself a favor and ask the most mature, kind-hearted person you can find.  Do not ask me, for I am neither mature nor kind-hearted, and whatever you do, do not consult the Urban Dictionary, to which I have linked for some reason.  Don't do it.

Baldur's Gate 2 Now Available from Good Old Games

Baldur's Gate 2, which may as well be called "This is Dungeons and Dragons," is now available for your six player online co-op pleasure at Good Old Games.com.  For those of you not familiar with gog.com, they have an amusing 'about us' page that pretty much gives you the nuts and bolts of the operation.  The long and short of it is that gog.com offers out of print PC games as digital downloads when they aren't faking going out of business.  Stupid marketing ploys aside, the site seems solid.

Crackdown 2 Deluge Pack Offers more Co-op Goodness

Crackdown 2's Deluge Pack hit Xbox Live today, as promised. We notified you guys a couple weeks back of what this DLC had to offer and offered up a trailer. Most exciting to us, of course, was mention of the Horde-esque co-op mode called, well, you guessed it, Deluge. If you're on the fence about the Deluge Pack, you can preview it. The Deluge Pack Preview gives you a single-player version of Deluge and the other mode that's included in the pack, Capture the Orb (playable with up to 16 players competitively). If you like what you see, you can purchase the Premium Deluge Pack for 560 MSP which unlocks the full version of Deluge (up to 4 players), new achievements, avatar rewards, and Capture the Orb over 6 arenas.

Shank is the Xbox Live Gold Deal of The Week

It's that time of the week again, when the new deal of the week is available for those with an Xbox Live Gold membership.  Shank is the featured game, and the savings is 33% off the normal 1200 points down to 800 points, or ten bucks for the math-challenged.  We reviewed the game earlier this fall, and though it wasn't without its problems, the overall verdict was that Shank is a decent way to pass an afternoon with a buddy.  And until November 22, you can do just that, at a decent discount.

Co-Op Release Alert: Marvel Superhero Squad The Infinity Gauntlet

Who needs Call of Duty: Black Ops when you can get adorable action figure-like versions of Marvel Superheroes in video game form instead?  I suppose the answer to that question is "most people".  Still, Black Ops is a grown up's game, and folks like Thor and Iron Man are far more appropriate for the E10+ crowd.  Last year, the first game based on the hit Cartoon Network show was released, and we weren't exactly fond of it.  The new game, subtitled The Infinity Gauntlet, is available today for the Wii and this time, for Xbox 360 and PS3 as well.  Perhaps the camera and co-op, increased to four players, are a bit more thoughtful this time around.  And a high-def makeover can't hurt, either.
