Square Off Co-Op Review

Great music, quirky, awesome animations and art, 4 player co-op and aliens. What more do you need? Well, okay, we agree. There are some other elements that make or break a game, and we'll take a look into those elements with Square Off and let you know what we thought.

Brink Creative Director Discusses Background, Experience System, and Campaigns

It's fair to say that many of us around Co-Optimus HQ (which will be undergoing a few renovations soon) are a wee bit excited about Splash Damage's and Bethesda's upcoming co-op title, Brink.  After all, the last cinematic trailer we saw had us making up all new words to describe the game's co-op.  Of course, while these kinds of details and reveals are nice, there's still been some questions about what players can expect out of the campaign.  Gamespot Australia recently spoke with Richard Ham, the game's creative director, about the game's background, how the experience system works, and the two campaigns players can run through.

[Update] Sol Survivor PC Impressions Added

Earlier this week, Sol Survivor, the indie co-op tower defense title previously only available via XBox LIVE Indie Games, was brought to the PC through Steam and Impulse.  This transition between gaming platforms is more than just a port, though, as the PC version comes with a few community demanded (and needed) enhancements.  We've updated our previous Sol Survivor review with a new page that gives our impressions of this latest version.

Co-Op Deals: 1942: Joint Strike and Trine on Sale on PSN

Some good co-op deals for all the Playstation users out there, courtesy of the Playstation Blog's weekly Playstation Store Update.  The remake of the classic Capcom co-op shoot 'em up, 1942: Joint Strike, is on sale this week for just $4.99, and Trine, a grand three player co-op adventure, is being permanently discounted from $19.99 to $14.99.  In his review of 1942, Nick praised the job Backbone Entertainment did in bringing this classic title back and concluded by saying "if you love top down scrolling shooters, and you love playing them with friends, you are going to really enjoy 1942: Joint Strike."  Trine was selected by our staff as the "Best Downloadable Co-Op Title" for the 2009 Co-Op GOTY Awards, and Katrina's impression of the PSN version was that it was every bit as competent and fun as its PC counterpart.  Two great deals for two great co-op games; seems like a good way to start the weekend to me!

Battlefield Report - March 18, 2010

I know, I know, I'm not the same zen master of FPS warfare that Jim is. I approached your regular Battlefield Reporter to swap columns with him. He graciously agreed, and now I can share with you my thoughts on the combat-heavy Halo Interactive Strategy (Board) Game.
