Borderlands for the PC is a little further away than the 360 and PS3 versions of next week (OMG NEXT WEEK!), but that gives you plenty of time to organize a group of four people for this co-op deal Steam is offering.
Curse those Lizardmen! With their scales, and the slime, and their...green-ness. In Hudson's upcoming WiiWare title, Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem you'll be able to put a stop to their lizardly tactics once and for all!
Din, champion of the Gods, is not pleased with you one bit. You were not very nice in your life, and have now been cursed to live out a second life chock full of redemption. You're charged with being a savior of mankind, and will roam the plains of Western Aleria until Din is satisfied with you. It's not all dark and dreary though, as Din's Curse will give you a dynamically changing world to Action/RPG in with unique quests, different townspeople, and new locations every time you start a new game.
Music games are great fun, so it's only natural that folks want to play them on the go. Previous efforts haven't exactly been strong in the co-op aspect, either implementing it poorly (Guitar Hero: On Tour) or eliminating it entirely (Rock Band Unplugged). That trend looks to change with Rock Band for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Survival or Waves modes seem to be all the rage these days with co-op games. And while we all love a good cooperative experience bolstered by solid exposition, it's hard not to love the arcade like nature of survival challenges.
Three weeks ago, IGN graciously hosted the demo for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the upcoming PSP game that will feature 4-player co-op. It's completely in Japanese, but thanks to a couple of handy guides, it's playable for those of us who can't read Japanese. We posted the link as well, hoping to get some time in with the demo...
EA has just released a fresh batch of screenshots for the upcoming Command and Conquer sequel title Tiberian Twilight. Command and Conquer 4 will be a co-op experience for two players, and from what we've heard, it sounds like a lot of time and care went into designing it for cooperative play. Careful unit balancing and class specialization along with RPG elements all hint at a much deeper RTS experience.
It's been a few weeks now since Halo 3: ODST's release. Perhaps you see your friends still enjoying the game's Firefight mode and whimper in jealous. You get the constant invites of a group needing a fourth soldier for a legendary run through the campaign and curse your empty wallet. Sadly you've yet to pick the game up, we know, we all have our reasons for avoiding it - but now there's no excuse.
It's been some time since Salem and Rios dropped by the EA Offices to get down to business. I'm assuming they are hard at work trying to finish up Army of Two: The 40th Day for it's early January release date. From the looks of things, not everyone else has the same commitment that duo possess for getting a job done.
Uncharted 2 should be on store shelves today, and with it comes an engrossing single player game packed with three separate online co-op modes for three players.
