Yeah, yeah, I'm like a broken record. My last entry for this column was for the same game, but what can you do? I love super heroes, I love co-op, and I usually game with my 8 year old son, so Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is getting lots of playtime in our house. We are nearly at the end of our second replay, and I've been focusing on unlocking alternate costumes for many different characters.

The following deal was acquired through careful sneaking, avoidance of all guards, and one mishap with a silenced pistol. We've managed to secure copies of Splinter Cell Conviction on the Xbox 360 and PC for quite a bit less than MSRP. How much?
This last few months of gaming have been kind to retro co-op games, and I can think of a few warm-n-fuzzies I've felt recently. This weeks On The Download will aim to spark a mushy retromance with some of the recent vintage downloadables. We also want to hear what you'd like to see remade.
If you want to be one of the first lucky few to get your hands on Splinter Cell Conviction's co-op mode almost two weeks before the game launches, you'll have to head to Gamestop in a select few cities for an exclusive Co-Op Event.
