E3 2010: Donkey Kong Country Returns With Co-Op!

Some big news is coming out of Nintendo's conference at E3 today.  Amid the news about the new 3DS handheld (which we'll cover shortly) and the latest Zelda game (The Skyward Sword) comes news of a revival of a classic Nintendo co-op series.  Donkey Kong is coming back to the Wii!  In the quite literally titled Donkey Kong Country Returns, Donkey and Diddy will be teaming up for adventure once again.  The gameis being developed by Retro Studios, and is coming "this holiday season".  That's some fantastic news, as the Donkey Kong Country games are well regarded.  The co-op elements were a bit too simplistic in the originals, so perhaps that will be fixed in the new title.  We'll keep you posted with further developments!

E3 2010 Conduit 2 Shows Us Guns

Last years release of a Wii on-rails shooter sans co-op baffled us in The Conduit. It was the first time in ages a game with such co-op capabilities left us without a player 2. It would appear Sega learned from their mistake, unleashing The Conduit 2 complete with co-op, and a supposedly revolutionary online multiplayer system. This will be the first time a company has made such a claim for Wii's online capabilities, but we're certainly ready to hear more.

E3 2010: Power Gig Rise of the Six String Demo

Several months back, we first heard about Power Gig Rise of the Six String. The game is billed as a more authentic guitar playing experience, using what is basically a standard guitar that can change into a more typical music game peripheral.  Wonder how that all works?  G4 has posted their time playing the demo hands on.  It's certainly interesting, but it remains to be seen whether Power Gig will topple Guitar Hero and Rock Band from the top of the music game heap.

E3 2010: Halo Reach Campaign Trailer Requires Change of Pants

Better break out the Depends undergarments, ladies and gentlemen.  The new Halo Reach campaign trailer, fresh from Microsoft's E3 show yesterday, is now available for us poor slobs who were unable to attend.  The footage is from the campaign mode, which as we already know, will support 4 player co-op.  Some nice views of the HUD as well as some new tricks like fancy assassination moves are on display.  The game looks beautiful, leaps and bounds better than any previous Halo.  But the best part of the trailer is the last few seconds... (Spoilers ahoy, Spartans.)

E3 2010 Assassins Creed: Brotherhood Co-op Trailer?

From the looks of it, the November 16th release of Assassins Creed: Brotherhood will have quite a few surprises. Not only will this be the first Assassins Creed to continue with a figure of the past (starring Ezio Auditori), but he'll have a few friends with him. The game looks to live up to the previous visual quality of Assassins Creed titles, but we're not sure where the story is headed with this new Brotherhood.

E3 2010: Microsoft Reveals the Sleek New Xbox 360

E3 is in full swing, and Microsoft's presentation just wrapped up.  Most of the focus was on Project Natal, now known as Kinect.  But at the end of the presentation, a longstanding rumor was officially confirmed: a new Xbox 360 is here.  Shipping to stores today, the new Xbox 360 is sleek, shiny, and dare we say sexy.  Abandoning the matte-finish curves of the first model, the new version is angular and glossy black.
