It's round 3 on Sega's release of their classic titles to the PC, including some great co-op titles that we've revered throughout the years. Sega has spent a bit of time compiling their classic titles for release in one place, on the PC, hopefully to be kept, cherished, and relived by many - as well as shared with new generations to come.

This Week in Co-Op: This Town Ain't Big Enough - Part II

Nick made the mistake of putting two long-winded writers on the same project. The result? Two projects. Enjoy another recap of one particularly fun evening spent poaching wild boar and causing general mayhem. (See the first one here.) Following is a paraphrased account of my introductory gaming session with Andrew “Cubninja” Gaskill, via Red Dead Redemption. Me: “How much have you played thi-- holy cow, you’re a level 44?” Cubninja: “Oh, yeah, twice over.” Me: “Well, okay, then. I guess I follow you.”

Halo: Reach Campaign Matchmaking and Firefight Updates Are Live

It has been 36 days since Halo: Reach hit the store shelves.  In the past five weeks a ton of great games have come out for single and co-op play. Vanquish, Enslaved, Castlevania, Dead Rising 2, and Fallout: New Vegas are just a few good to excellent games that have all been vying for attention.  For many gamers I know, Reach has made the trip back to that 'Used Games' shelf in the sky in exchange for a down payment on an apartment in New Vegas, or a hovel in Albion.

DJ Hero 2 Released Today, Online Demo and First DLC Revealed

If you like your music games with a bit less metal and a bit more crossfading, you'll be glad to know that DJ Hero 2 is on store shelves starting today.  Up to two turntables and a vocalist can team up to... er, spin that record, babe.  If you're undecided about the game, you can try a browser based demo, using the mouse and keyboard to simulate the true turntable experience.  It's actually pretty fun by itself, though I can't compare it to the real controller as I've never used one.

Combat Arms Adds New Co-Op Map Set in a Mine

It's a good thing those miners in Chile didn't get stuck in this underground area, because they probably wouldn't have survived 70 days fighting zombies with only a few cans of tuna at their disposal.  Perhaps Nexon's timing is impeccable, or perhaps they just have good luck - but they are jumping all over this new mining fad by launching a new co-op map called Black Lung in Combat Arms.

Microbot Takes You On A Fantastic Voyage Through Inner Space

The twin stick shooter is enjoying quite a bit of popularity these days, and a new title in the genre has to do something special to really stand out among the field.  MicroBot's innovation is the setting: the inside of a human body.  Two players can team up in their microscopic ships to eradicate diseased cells that have merged with rogue nanobots.  A dynamic level generator will ensure that, as in real life, no two human bodies are alike, and the MicroBots are upgradable, as well.  Most intriguing is the "innovative co-op editor" that allows partners to work together to create the ultimate MicroBot.
