Brothers in Arms 2 iPhone Game to Have Co-Op, Though Not at Release

The number of co-op gaming apps on the iPhone is, slowly but surely, growing, and a new one is possibly on the way.  It seems that Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front, the sequel to last year's Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heroes iPhone port, will include complete campaign co-op for all 13 of the game's levels for two players.  There's a catch, though: the co-op mode will not be available at the game's release.  Does that mean co-op will be patched into the game later, or will it end up being left out altogether?  We reached out to Gameloft, the game's developer, for clarification, but have yet to receive any word regarding whether or not the game will eventually have co-op.  For now, chock this one up to a solid "TBD" (but hopeful) status.

Crackdown 2 Still Slated For Release "Later This Year"

Last week we posted a news story that offered a few new screenshots for Crackdown 2 as well as details regarding the pre-order bonus.  We also initially stated that the release date for this anticipated co-op title would be June, but then updated the post that further details were pending.  Well all of the facts are now in and it seems, sadly, that Crackdown 2 still has no firm release date other than "later this year."

EA Server Shutdown March 2010 - LOTR Conquest, Army of Two (Asia)

Less 'service with a smile' and more 'servers with a frown', as the news breaks that EA are to close down more online servers on March 16th.  This is bad news for co-op fans looking to complete Lord of the Rings: Conquest, as this is the highest profile co-op game on the list.  For those in Asia, the closing down of the Army of Two online servers on April 15th will be a double blow - no more fist bumping for you.  Finally, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames on the PC will be given its burns notice.

Darwinia+ Co-Op Review

Darwinia is what life would be like in a computer. Single "polygon" organisms called Darwinians live their simple lives learning, growing, and dying to be reincarnated as other Darwinians. In the game, Darwinia is under attack by an evil computer virus, and it's up to you to bring it under control.

This Week in Co-Op: Kino One

 While we tend to cover a lot of popular co-op games on Co-Optimus, there's a whole indie scene where cooperative gaming is just as popular.  Xbox Live has their Indie Channel, we're starting to see iPhone titles pop up as well, but the place where this movement is most evident is on the PC.  This week we take a look at a small title from developer ItBGames called Kino One.

Resident Evil 5 Added to Games on Demand, Lost In Nightmares DLC Out Today

Just in time for the release of the first of two new DLC packs, Resident Evil 5 joins the list of great co-op titles (one of which is slated for tomorrow's XBox LIVE Co-Op Night) available through XBox LIVE's Games on Demand service.  Now, I'm sure the question many of you are asking is, "Shouldn't I just wait and buy the Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition that's set to be released in three weeks' time?"  Well, if you crunch the numbers on all of it, snagging the Games on Demand version of Resident Evil 5 ($29.99) and all of the DLC as it becomes available, which in total will come to 1520 , will set you back about $48.98.  That's just a couple dollars more than the current pre-order price for the Gold Edition on Amazon of $46.99.  To put it another way, picking up the game and the "Lost in Nightmares" DLC now gets you an additional three weeks to enjoy the new Jill and Chris chapter, as well as zombie slaying with Excella and Barry Burton in Mercenaries mode, and an additional week with the "Desperate Escape" DLC, all for just $2 more.

Great Amazon Deals: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, Modern Warfare 2

Two Amazon sales today will be of particular interest to co-op fans.  The XBox 360 version of online juggernaut Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is discounted, down to $39.96.  If you prefer comic book style Juggernauts, then Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is a good bet (though Juggy is only available as DLC).  The game was recently discounted down to $40, but today's sale allows you to pick up the Wii, 360, or PS3 versions for a mere $19.99.  The game wasn't as good as it's predecessor, but it's worth playing at that price for the story, alone.  Click on the boxart for the deals, and help support Co-Optimus!
