  • Co-Opticast Episode 106: What's Yours is Mine Episode

  • Co-Opticast Episode 102: The PlayStation 4 Episode


    The PlayStation 4 has been announced! But we haven't seen it, so how can it be real? We discuss the specs and what they mean - is it a PC? Is it a console? How many videos can you stream? Does it even game, bro? There's also plenty of chat about what we've been playing and of course there's tales from the bonfire - which means more Dark Souls talk much to Jason and Nick's chagrin. Also we have cheat codes for classic Genesis games.

  • Co-Opticast Episode 101: DungeonSpace Land 3


    We're a man down this week, most likely because of contracting some strange necromorphing virus. Locke, Jason and Nick hold down the fort and give their impressions of DungeonLand on the PC and Dead Space 3. There's plenty of co-op, plenty of gore, and surprisingly lots of goodies pop out of corpses in both games.

  • Co-Opticast Episode 95: The Colonel Fundip Episode
