Perfect Dark XBLA Co-Op Only for Two Players, After All

The Co-Optimus staff doesn't have an overtly reputation for getting too far ahead of ourselves, although on occasion we're known to get excited about something that may have been too good to be true. In this case, we found a video that suggested there would be 8-player co-op in the Perfect Dark Xbox Live Arcade port...it turns out that was the online multiplayer mode. Co-op is still online and offline, but limited to two players in each case.

Bungie Regrets Not Including Matchmaking in Halo 3: ODST

We've previously covered, through various post-mortems and look-back interviews, how Bungie had considered Matchmaking for Halo 3: ODST, but how it was ultimately shot down due to the time and effort that would have been involved with such an undertaking.  Well last Friday OXM UK heard from Bungie's community boss, Brian Jarrard, that Bungie's biggest regret was "not being able to go back and make Firefight in ODST work and have match-making."

Dragon Ball: Origins 2 Trailer Shows Co-Op Action

Yesterday, we brought you word of a new Nintendo DS co-op title, Dragon Ball: Origins 2, that is slated to hit stores this summer.  Today, we bring you the first trailer for the game, which shows off a bit of the co-op challenge mode in action.  Based on what's shown in the trailer, it appears that players will be able to use special co-op attacks to take down bosses and other foes when they team up for the challenges.  Here's hoping this mode is as much fun as it appears to be, and doesn't go down the same path as other titles with these types of challenge modes.

Our Weekend in Gaming - Plenty to Play Edition

It's a busy weekend at Co-Optimus HQ.  Many of the staff will be working on upcoming reviews, which by my count is 5 in total, and many will be checking out Betas.  While others will be jealous of said beta, there's plenty of other gaming to be had.

Dragon Ball: Origins 2 to Arrive This Summer With Co-Op

Namco Bandai announced yesterday that the latest in the Dragon Ball series of games, Dragon Ball: Origins 2, will be arriving State-side this summer and, best of all, it'll be arriving with co-op.  The single-player portion of the game will revolve around the adventures of Son Goku as he takes on the Red Ribbon Army, while the co-op portion will be a separate piece that's focused on specific co-op challenges for two players.  Players will unlock these challenges through progress in their single-player campaign, though hopefully there will be some challenges available to players from the start.  Keep reading for the full press release as well as a few screen shots from the upcoming title.
