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.

Portal 2 Co-Op Trailer is Short and to the Point

Valve have released a trailer showcasing what Portal 2's co-op gameplay will be like.  It may be short, but it gets the point across, and really makes us excited for some of the more advanced co-op puzzles we'll see when the game launches this February.  I can also see Portal 2's co-op mode being a lot of fun just to screw around with sandbox style with a friend - all we need is some quality ragdoll physics!

Co-Op Casual Friday: Murky Horizon

The formula for Murky Horizons is something like this: take a healthy dollop of twin stick shooter, mix thoroughly with a "build your own maze" tower defense game, and add in a hint of the "stay in the light or die" mechanic from Gears of War. It may sound like an odd conglomeration, but it works.
