White Knight Chronicles Video Details Online Gameplay Portion

There certainly is a lot of buzz in the RPG world right now between the recently released (and co-opable to a degree) Demon's Souls, and the upcoming (but with no co-op option, sadly) Final Fantasy XIII.  One title that may be slipping through a lot of RPG gamers' radars, though, is White Knight Chronicles.  We've previously covered how the battle system works, and what all is included in the online portion of the game, but today we've got a video from Sony that goes into much greater detail about what players can expect from that online portion.  Check it out after the break.

Three More Co-Op Titles Go Platinum

Three more co-op titles have landed on the XBox 360's Platinum Hits list: Fable 2, Gears of War, and Halo Wars.  While we weren't too keen about the way co-op was handled in Fable 2, it was still a fun game in its own right and there may be some potential for a "save file tie-in" between Fable 2 and Fable 3Halo Wars provides a very solid co-op RTS experience on the 360, with each player controlling their own troops but sharing the resources as they fight off the Covenant forces.  As for Gears of War, it offers the same co-op experience as its successor, with a few great moments of its own.  Each of these titles costs $29.99 so now may be a good time to use some of those lingering gift cards you got from Christmas.

Lost Planet 2 Boss Battle Features Giant Monster, Phallic Imagery

We have long been intrigued by the kaiju-like bosses in Lost Planet 2.  After viewing the latest trailer, featuring a spider-like, tentacled, horrific monster oozing thermal energy while appearing to swallow a rather enormous cannon, we think Sigmund Freud might find it interesting, too.  Just over two minutes of video, including a cut scene and a fair amount of actual gameplay, have just been released for your viewing pleasure.  The prospect of four soldiers working together to take down a boss has our co-op sense tingling in anticipation. I do wonder, though, if the developers might be compensating for something?
