Valve revealed in last night's GameTrailers TV preview that a new area we'll be visiting in Left 4 Dead 2 will be a carnival! Officially called "Whispering Oaks", the creepy amusement park is the centerpiece of the latest campaign to be revealed: The Fairgrounds. Along with the campaign news comes the world debut of the katana, yet another melee weapon (magical flashlight beam included). We've got the video embedded for you.
Doom on the Xbox Live Arcade was a solid port of the game, and if my count is correct, it's the 37th system to get such a port. Yes I'm counting graphing calculators. But if you've had your fill of the first game, then it's time to upgrade to the double barreled shotty and play Doom 2 in glorious four player co-op.
It's always great when a game gives players a variety of vehicles to choose from to get from Point A to Point B. It's even better when the vehicles allow multiple players to ride along in co-op. The latest video for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising shows off some of the game's vehicles ranging from jeeps to helicopters and everything in between.
It would appear that Wii gamers, jealous of the easy online capabilities offered by the Xbox 360 and the PS3, will be pleased with this news. Game specific friend codes might be on their way out! Guitar Hero 5 will be among the first games to use the Wii console codes for online play. No more entering long codes for each game you want to play online sounds pretty good to us. Vicarious Visions CEO Karthik Bala gave more details to the folks over at IGN.
Sometimes a relationship keeps people apart. The long distance relationship was always considered difficult, but thanks to modern technology there's no reason to feel apart from your significant other. Our latest co-op couples looks at using co-op gaming, movies and chat to keep connected.
I'm going to go on record right now and say that the Naked Emperor from Fairytale Fights may be the most disturbing and the most awesome character I've seen in video games in quite some time. There's something psychotic, and yet hilarious, about a naked guy running around with a sword lopping heads off colorful characters. Perhaps it's the little green leaf hiding his man parts.
Chalk up another causality this holiday season. Army of Two: The 40th Day has been delayed from it's previous October release date until January 12th, 2010. It joins a myriad of other titles that have been delayed from a Fall 2009 release to a 2010 release.
The boys at Bohemia Interactive have announced an expansion pack for the four player co-op game ArmA II called Operation Arrowhead. The expansion is set in the hilly regions of Asia, Arrowhead takes place three years after the events of Chernarus. There's no other detail regarding new weapons or vehicles, but with a current roster of a few hundred, what's a few dozen more?
I'll be honest, after watching the gameplay footage from the San Diego Comic-Con, I wasn't so sure about Game #3. It appeared to be geared more towards a versus style of play rather than co-op. The game has a new trailer though, one that shows a new gameplay mode, and one that restores faith that the game will still have some sort of co-op.
Despite having a brand new gaming laptop, the recently released Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising system requirements scare me. Not only do they require a dual core processor, they recommend you have a quad core processor. Thankfully the memory and video card requirements don't seem as steep, but to get something looking as good as the screenshot above - we're thinking it's time to hit up NewEgg and look for some upgrades.
