Whats blakepro up to anyway?

Life is just really busy. I've got two boys now (currently 3 and 2 years old) and my wife is having some health issues right now. I'm also attending college (online) and working full time.

An open letter to Co-optimus, its staff and its community.

I recently casually mentioned a little problem I’m facing with things at home in a post. It’s not a big deal, just something I’m up against. I wasn’t expecting any real reactions about it; I was just sort of mentioning it because even though there are things that stress me out, there are things like co-optimus and contests and other fun things out there that help balance out that frustration. Anyway, I had a few comments on the thread that were quite thoughtful and one member even sent me a PM offering me some Playstation point credit to help fund some fun gametime in this rough patch of life. What a thoughtful thing! I don’t know many places online where you would get reactions like that.

My Favorite CO-OP game of all time.

I remember playing Contra on the NES and having to rely on the ol'  up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, SELECT, start, code quite heavily. The SELECT button is essential, because that's what moves the cursor over from one player, to two. - Oh I was terrible at the game, I would burn through my lives after a few levels and my friend was always gracious enough to let me steal his lives so we both could continue on. I've always loved playing the contra games co-op whenever someone is willing to play it with me.

Split screen is not the same as co-op!? Grumble grumble! I disagree!!

As someone who was always pestering poor nick for forum support of the tapatalk app, I appreciate the mobile forum. You even got the "active topics" button I love so much on there. I spend 9 hours a week on the train and my phone is my gateway to sites like this. I'm rarely able to visit via desktop like I was years ago. So thank you! From: Welcome to Co-Optimus 4.0

Good enough for me! I just pulled the trigger on that one. I've always been intrigued with it. I love the old N64 PD and the HD remake... From: Xbox Live "Ultimate Game Sale" Is Here
