E3 2010 - The Sony Briefing in Pictures

Sony's E3 press conference was filled with games, games, and more games.  While there wasn't a whole lot of co-op games on display we did enter the world of co-op and 3D with Killzone 3 - which was quite impressive.  Along the way we got a peak at some new Move titles including an impressive demo of a game called Sorcery.   Of course the highlight was the aforementioned Kevin Butler appearance and speech - one that shouldn't be missed.

E3 2010 - Nintendo Press Conference in PIctures

E3 2010 - XCOM Hands off Preview

Whenever you take the name of a popular franchise and then shape it to be that of your own, the controversy surrounding it usually speaks louder than the game itself.  It's a shame really because this is the field that XCOM has sowed as it's a first person shooter based on a classic PC turn based strategy franchise.

E3 2010 - F.E.A.R. 3 Hands-Off Co-Op Demonstration

When we first heard that the next entry in the F.E.A.R. series of games would feature co-op, and a form of co-op that the game's developer, Day 1 Studios, calls "divergent co-op," we were left with quite a few questions.  Early previews of the game helped clear up some of these, but we still were curious about how the game looked for ourselves.  Fortunately, Day 1 Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive had a demonstration of the game's co-op in action at E3 and what we saw left us feeling a bit divergent already.  Specifically, how will we decide who gets to play as Fettel?

E3 2010 - Hunted: The Demon's Forge Hands-On Co-Op Impressions

There were a lot of games to see during last week's E3; some of them co-op, others not so much.  Amidst all the announcements, demos, and chaos, though, there was one co-op title that Nick and I were eager to get our hands on and try out - inXile's upcoming co-op action/adventure/puzzle title, Hunted: The Demon's ForgeInitial previews of the game likened it to "Gears of Warcraft" or "Spears of War," and those wouldn't be too far off, but the game certainly seems to promise more.

E3 2010 - Halo Reach Gameplay Footage

E3 2010 gave us a release date and Firefight 2.0 for Halo Reach.  It also gave us the first glimpse at the gameplay and music.  We gotta say, we're pretty excited to see the game in motion - and the co-op nature of the gameplay looked fantastic.  One surprise to us was the new music, a slight departure from the amazing Halo soundtracks of the past.

E3 2010 - The Show in Pictures

Apologies readers of Co-Optimus for not getting this and other various articles of E3 up sooner.  It seems that cataclysmic events of epic proportions all decided to happen in a seven day timespan - combined with the lack of stable or ANY internet - and I'm way behind on my duties for Co-Optimus.

Co-Op Release Alert: Transformers War for Cybertron

There's only one significant co-op video game release this week, and it's perfect for fans of giant freakin' robots.  Transformers War for Cybertron appears to be the best Transformers game yet.  Three player online co-op is available for the two campaigns (Autobots and Decepticons), plus there are co-op skirmish modes, as well.  As a major Transformers nerd, I've got high hopes for this one; maybe it'll erase the painful memories of the last movie?  Who knows, but we'll have our hands on this game soon enough.  Anyone else planning to pick this up?  If you are, use the links above for a $10 credit at Amazon, and you'll help support other famous robots: namely, Billy, #1 and #2.

E3 2010: CliffyB Presents Gears of War 3 Campaign Demo

Amidst all of the Beast Mode hoopla last week, you might have missed the demonstration of Gears of War 3's Campaign Mode.  Cliff Bleszinksi presented (and played through) the demo, which shows off the female Gears, some sweet visuals, the Lambent enemies, and a particularly nasty death scene (or twenty).  It's pretty impressive stuff.  Looks like the story mode of Gears 3 will be just as good (dare we say great) as that of its predecessors.

PSN's Fat Princess Going Co-op?

Fat Princess has been a hit on the PSN for 2 years now. Friends competing to weigh down their princess so they can't be stolen, sort of a twisted take on capture the flag. The goal is to "rescue" the princess from the other team, but that team can steal her back if you're not careful. Best way to prevent that? Feed her cake, so the fat princess is harder to reclaim.

Crackdown 2 Demo Drops from Fifteen Stories, Cracks Concrete

Okay, yeah...I went overboard with that title. But overboard can be a good thing - like when Ruffian Games decided to go overboard with the Crackdown 2 demo, which is available for download right now. Not only does the 30-minute timed demo support 4-player online co-op, but any Achievements unlocked while playing will be automatically applied if you decide to play the full retail version (which will be in stores in two weeks, by the way).
