Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is Bigger, Badder and More Co-Op

We rather enjoyed the first HD remake of Serious Sam.  While it offered little more than prettier graphics, the 16 player co-op on PC and 4 player co-op on XBLA made the game a total mindless blast.  So we're happy to report that Croteam, Devolver Digital and Majesco are all involved with bringing out a remake of Serious Sam The Second Encounter to both PC and XBLA.

Microsoft Points Bundles Changed To Fit Gamers Needs

Remember when Xbox LIVE was young, and the only available point values to purchase were 500, 1000 , etc? Those values were strange, because they didn't match the cost of the games and you always had strange leftover amounts. On a $5 (400) game, you had 100 leftover useless MSPoints (which is approximate $1.50). On a $10 (800) game, you had 200 unused MSPoints leftover. Not enough to do anything with, but no refunds on your real-life money.

The Scourge Project Hits Steam Today, 10% Off For First Week

A couple weeks ago we got some hands-on time with Tragnarion Studio's four player co-op, third-person shooter, The Scourge Project, and were rather pleased with what we saw.  A co-op game where the narrative can be viewed from four unique perspectives is a particular mechanic that we certainly haven't seen in many of the games we've played and reviewed here at Co-Optimus, and one that Omar Salleh, the game's director, discussed in a bit more detail in our interview with him.  After the preview and the discussion with Omar, we were eager to get our hands on the full-game and see what mysteries it had in store for us.  Well, the time is finally at hand as Tragnarion announced today that The Scourge Project will be available for purchase on Steam today, and is even available at a 10% discount if you order it within the first week of its release.
