Killing Floor Oozes Onto Mac

Now that uber game service Steam is available for Macs, more and more titles are being released for Apple's long neglected (by game companies, at least) platform.  One new addition is Killing Floor, a strong co-op zombie slaying title.  We thought rather highly of the title, and it's on sale for 33% off the standard $20 price.  Best of all, cross-platform play is enabled, meaning you can slaughter hordes of undead with a friend regardless of their preference for a computer.

Sega Tried To Surprise Us With Virtual-On Force

The above pictured Japanese magazine has officially leaked the full game co-op title Virtual-On Force, which is similar to the XBLA version "Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram," only bigger and more co-opey. Virtual On is Sega's version of Armored Core - giant mechs, guns, explosions, etc. The arcade game is a world of fun, but Kotaku has the scoop so far on what the full game will contain.

Transformers War for Cybertron Video Discusses How Campaigns Designed for Co-Op

"Which side are you on?"  While some of us have flashes to Marvel's Civil War story arc, High Moon Studios, the developer for the upcoming co-op Transformers: The War for Cybertron third-person action/shooter title, is wondering which side you and your co-op buddies will be choosing first: the Decepticons or the Autobots.  In a recently released video, some of the game's developers discuss how the campaign was developed specifically with an eye towards co-op play in mind.

This Week in Co-op: Co-op in JRPGs

I have a love/hate relationship with JRPGs. We always start off on a good foot: I admire the often impressive graphics, delight over whatever crazy-complicated combat system it offers, thrill over opening the chests and equipping my characters. Ten (or twenty, or thirty) hours later, I can easily find myself cursing its random encounters, its stubborn adherence to save points (which often come few and far between), and its convoluted storyline that had ceased to make any sense and appears to never end. A reveal of some new system or gaining better understanding of some already existing gameplay element that was holding me back can soothe my rage and I can go back to enjoying it again or I drop the genre in disgust until the next shiny, plastic-wrapped box courtesy of Japan whispers promises that this one will be different. This isn't the pattern of all JRPGs I've played, but sadly, it's a common pattern.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Delayed Until 2011

We're sad to report that Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has been officially delayed. It was originally slotted for 2010's holiday season, but is now pushed back to "March quarter" 2011. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot cited the competitive environment of the original release date as the major factor for the delay (Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops are due out around then). Some extra development time could also be a boon, he admitted. As far as we know, the multi-player beta is still on for this summer.
