Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising is 75% Off on Steam This Weekend

If you need a tactical shooter fix this weekend, then look no further than Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising.   The game is discounted 75% this weekend, down from $29.99 to $7.49.  This'll get you some sweet four player co-op action on top of some really pretty graphics.  You can check out our review of the game, but I think you'll be hard pressed to turn down a low price for the title.

Portal 2 Reveal is Co-op Friendly

When Portal was new, gamers were in love. Creative quirky gameplay with challenging puzzles that had more than enough action to keep us entertained, Portal had the perfect formula. Well, the sequel took that formula, and went back to the drawing board to add Co-op to the title. That's right, we can now play Valve's hit game, Portal together.

Free Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce DLC Now Available

What could possibly better than over the top, blades flying, four player online action?  How about more of the same, for the low, low price of free (for Gold members)?  A DLC pack for Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce is now available, and includes three new quests: Battle of Ru Xu Kou, Linked Chains Plan, and Martial Contest 2.  Nick seemed to think highly of the game, and the changes to the franchise, as you can read about in his review.  You can queue up the DLC right here.  Don't have the game?  Try out the demo and see if some kitten slashing is right for you.

The Secret Armory of General Knoxx Video Review

Last week we brought you the written review and impressions of Borderland's 3rd piece of DLC.  The Secret Armory of General Knoxx kicked things up to 61, added new enemies and weapons, and generally was an all around good time.  Don't take our word for it?  Then perhaps this video will change your mind.  I'm sure there's some joke here about a picture, 1000 words, and flaming midgets - but I'm just going to let it speak for itself.

Activision Dials Down Guitar Hero Releases, Plus Possible Patent Problems

2009 - it was the year of way too many music video games.  The prime culprit was Activision, releasing a whopping 25 different SKUs last year.  Even for die-hard fans, that's too much of a good thing, and it's no surprise sales were lower than expected.  According to a conference call to investors, Activision plans for only two Hero games this year, both coming in the second half.  A sequel to DJ Hero and an unnamed Guitar Hero game are coming.  No PS2 versions, nor instrument bundles will ship for either.  Could there be trouble with the oversaturated franchise?

Interview With Crackdown 2 Developer Discusses Co-Op Play

Computerandvideogames.com posted an interview with James Cope yesterday in which the Ruffian Games producer, and former employee of Crackdown dev Realtime Worlds, discussed what players can expect from the four player co-op in the upcoming Crackdown 2.  James' description is very similar to what he stated in a previous interview, so it's good to know they're still focused on this idea of allowing you and your buddies to tackle a much larger goal by simultaneously working on different missions.
