Ex-Bioshock Devs Bring Zero Point to Xbox Live Indie Games

As the avalanche of pre-E3 news keeps rolling, we bring you news of an interesting upcoming Xbox Live Indie Game.  Named Zero Point, it's brought to you by a couple former Bioshock developers, Tyr Edge and Fennec Black, who have formed a company named LunaVu.  Zero Point is described as an action/strategy hybrid, and looks very impressive.  You play the role of a technician, defending your research equipment from blob-like alien Creeps.  Your Plasma Cannon destroys foes, and the mobile Lunar Shepherd tool herds Creeps around as they avoid it's headlights.

You May Want some Alone Time in Dead Rising 2's Co-Op Mode

Dead Rising 2 may finally be answering gamers dreams by adding co-op play to the series, but it's also going to make that dream with your buddy a little uncomfortable by adding some softcore porn.  Ok, it's not really adding naked ladies to the game, but Capcom has announced a partnership with Playboy magazine to bring real covers of issues into the game as well as a secret issue to find.

Necromachina E3 2010 Trailer

Hungry for a new co-op brawler to wrap your hands around? We are too, and it seems Necromachina is ready to fill that slot. Resembling a Castle Crashers/Castlevania mashup on a neo-Earth, Necromachina features 4-player co-op and is developed by none other than Square-Enix. Based on the trailer, we have decided the game has individual character powers unleashed by an MP (Magic Points) gauge, as well as co-op combo's if more than one player unleashes at the same time. Until recently, Necromachina was titled "Moon Diver," and is said to be an XBLA and PSN title in the near future.

Left 4 Dead Mod Lets You Know How Francis Feels About Mountains

If you play Left 4 Dead or Left 4 Dead 2 on the PC, you probably know there's a pretty robust L4D modding community. The mods can be pretty hit or miss, depending on how invested the modders are, but I, myself, am loath to pass up a perfectly good opportunity to shoot, decapitate, and otherwise maim zombies in new environments for simply the price of my time spent downloading the mod. A highly-anticipated (it's been in the works for a long, long time) Left 4 Dead fan-made campaign has recently been released, entitled "I Hate Mountains." It sports five new maps containing a mansion, lakefront, lumberyard, and uh, we're assuming mountains through which Francis and company must trek.

Rock Band 3 Will "Re-energize and Reinvigorate" The Music Game Genre

USA Today has posted a story covering Rock Band 3, Harmonix's upcoming music game release.  As hinted in the Green Day Rock Band demo, keyboards are included, to the satisfaction of Liberace fans everywhere.  This will bring the upper limit for co-op to seven at a time: bass, guitar, lead vocals, two backup singers, a drummer, and a keyboardist.  Tickling the ivories has been a fan request ever since the original Rock Band, and as the next logical step for the genre, it's great to finally see it.
