Lost Planet 2 to be Split Down the Middle

One of the biggest gripes that many co-op fans have with otherwise excellent co-op games is that you can only play cooperatively with friends online.  This is no good if you like the warmth of another human being and want to play games on the same TV.  The latest news from Capcom should help appease this sociable sort as they confirm in Japanese game magazine Famitsu that Lost Planet 2 will have splitscreen co-op.

Melt Faces Off Zombies with your Guitar Hero Skills, Bring a Friend

One of my all time favorite crazy games is Typing of the Dead, a game that blends House of the Dead with Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.  Yes, it's crazy - and it's crazy addictive for geeks like myself.  Developer Epicenter Games looks to release a spiritual sequel to the genre, with a game that combines Guitar Hero style gameplay with House of the Dead style action.  Enter Rock of the Dead.

iPhone Versus Shooter Getting the Co-Op Treatment

I have a Google Android-powered phone, so I don't get in on some of the cool apps and games like Eliminate. I see the iPhone and Android phones as, say...Pinky and the Brain. One gets all the love, while the other bides his time. Perhaps global domination will come somewhere down the line, but in the meantime one of them gets to have some fun. Egad!

Introducing Diablo III's Monk: the Female Edition

Diablo III has been teasing us for awhile now. A few screenshots here, an enemy description there, Blizzard toys with our emotions and gives us just enough information so we don't fall into despair over whether we'll actually hold this game in our hands. Well, today Blizzard supplied us with another drop in the bucket labeled "Things We'll See in Diablo III." Yes, Virginia, there is a female monk in the Diablo III universe.
