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.

Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock Entire Setlist Revealed

With the release of the game a little over a month away, Activision has spilled the complete setlist for Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock.  A quick look over the list indicates a shift back to the heavy metal, shredding style of the early years of the series.  Multiple songs from Megadeth and Rush's epic masterpiece "2112" are among the highlights.  Warriors of Rock may not have keys like its biggest competitor soon will, but with a solid group of tunes, a souped up story line, and the Soundgarden album tie-in, it looks like a fine choice for co-op music game fans this fall.
