Secret Armory of General Knoxx Still Being Released Today

The Internet giveth, and the Internet taketh away... or does it?  Those of you who have been patiently waiting for the Secret Armory of General Knoxx, the latest DLC for everyone's favorite co-op loot-gathering title Borderlands, to show up on your 360 may have seen a couple of news posts stating that it's been delayed by a day.  While it's easy to get swept up in these kinds of posts, we decided to reach out to a PR representative from Gearbox to see if they could confirm, one way or the other, General Knoxx's official release date.  It was a good thing we did, as the official word is as follows: "As of now I am issuing an official press release with today's launch date."

Army of Two: The 40th Day DLC Adds Two New Campaign Co-Op Chapters

Those of you who follow the Army of Two Twitter account may have noticed a rather exciting announcement this morning: "DLC!!! First look at Chapters of Deceit, coming April 1st."  Despite the usual association made with April 1, it seems this no joke and that our co-op heroes from Army of Two: The 40th Day will be back for more action quite soon.  From the blog announcement: "Chapters of Deceit features two all-new co-op campaign maps. In the new chapters, players stumble upon information that could lead to ending the invasion by Jonah and his 40th Day Initiative army. However, they quickly learn that everyone is out for themselves and to trust no one but their partner."

LEGO Harry Potter Conjures up Split Screen Co-Op in Latest Trailer

We just got a brand new trailer for LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 titled "Conjuring up Fun."  The focus of the trailer is on the open nature of LEGO Games, and specifically the creative things you can do in the latest addition to the franchise.  But what really grabbed our attention is the focus on co-op and a unique implementation of split screen co-op.

Don't Fret! Fret Nice Brings 2 Player Co-Op to XBLA This Week

This week brings us three new Xbox Live Arcade titles, and lucky for us, one of them is co-op!  Fret Nice is a rather quirky looking game, a platformer with a music game influences.  Two players can team up to play, though sadly they can only do so locally, and not online.  You and your partner can battle "heavy metal bosses", and defeat enemies by "creating your own sounds with each "strum" of a chord".  Add on a robust character cutomization system and the papercraft graphical style of the game, and Fret Nice appears to be worth checking out.  It will be available Wednesday for the MS point equivalent of $15.  Why not check out the Xbox.com entry or the official homepage in the meantime?

Perfect Dark XBLA Co-Op Only for Two Players, After All

The Co-Optimus staff doesn't have an overtly reputation for getting too far ahead of ourselves, although on occasion we're known to get excited about something that may have been too good to be true. In this case, we found a video that suggested there would be 8-player co-op in the Perfect Dark Xbox Live Arcade port...it turns out that was the online multiplayer mode. Co-op is still online and offline, but limited to two players in each case.

Bungie Regrets Not Including Matchmaking in Halo 3: ODST

We've previously covered, through various post-mortems and look-back interviews, how Bungie had considered Matchmaking for Halo 3: ODST, but how it was ultimately shot down due to the time and effort that would have been involved with such an undertaking.  Well last Friday OXM UK heard from Bungie's community boss, Brian Jarrard, that Bungie's biggest regret was "not being able to go back and make Firefight in ODST work and have match-making."
