Ever wanted to play as a Lost Planet 2 data post? Yes, you in the back - today is your lucky day! Capcom is slating a new data post character outfit for the "end of July", tentatively. Joining the downloadable "Post Modern" outfit is a new cooperative mode called Rush Arena, which pits up to four players against every boss in the game in succession.
Sometimes it's nice to hear a developer admit their mistakes. It's even better to hear that they are going to correct them. A lot of folks were disappointed with Fable 2's method of co-op, us included. It appears as if Lionhead wasn't exactly happy with it either. Lionhead's Ted Timmin's had this to say to Eurogamer during their E3 demo.
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is the 6th LEGO based family action game from Traveller’s Tales and it’s fair to say that they have the art of casual co-op mastered. Can the adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione improve on the format or will the game be a load of old Hogwarts?
On June 29, 2000, Diablo II hit store shelves. Let that sink in for just a bit... ten years! An entire decade ago, we first got our hands on the Barbarian, Necromancer, Sorceress, Amazon and Paladin on our way to invade Hell. The first Diablo was an amazing game, that's for sure. But the sequel kept the core gameplay that made the original so fun, and added in all manner of user-friendly features like the stash, and cranked the loot up to eleven with the addition of sockets. It all came together perfectly to make one of the best games of all time.
Earthworm Jim has made the leap to HD, looks incredible, and has a few things he'd like to say to the Download co-op crowd. We'll also take a look at the Summer of Arcade lineup, hyping ourselves up for a great upcoming July.
Halo: Reach's competitive multiplayer will undoubtedly be where the truckloads of character XP (called "Credits") are at. It will also be where the truckloads of whining, singing, griefing, elitist turds are at. So imagine our tears of joy when the MTV Multiplayer blog snagged a few new details outlining how Credits and customization is handled in Firefight 2.0 - and how they're both to our benefit.
Club Penguin - the Disney Interactive franchise that started as a Flash-based online massively multiplayer role-playing game (MMORPG) - has made its way to consoles, first with two Nintendo DS spin-off games and now with Club Penguin Game Day! for the Nintendo Wii.
We apologize for the late notice on this one, but things around Co-Optimus HQ are just settling down Post E3. This Thursday, that's July 1st, we're having an Xbox Live Co-Op Night to celebrate the new Battlefield: Bad Company 2 DLC called Onslaught.
