Upgraded PlayStation 4 Could Support More Local Players

The next iteration of the PlayStation 4, which was speculated about after GDC, is all but confirmed at this point. Giant Bomb received information from a variety of sources earlier this week that the new console, currently codenamed "NEO," will not only offer some hardware upgrades to allow games access to higher graphical fidelity, but that it could also change the way local co-op works.

Virtual couch co-op becomes a reality

How VR Could Change Co-Op Gaming Forever

Virtual Reality (VR) are two words which are about to have a huge impact in the world of co-op gaming. Tech industry leaders like Facebook, Samsung and Sony are currently tripping over themselves in the rush to become VR global leaders and seize the sizeable market. You may already have tried out a beta version of VR but the latest technology is literally going to transport you to a different world. Devices are as simple as headphones and a visor but the experiences the technology can now produce are astounding.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Prepare To Cry Edition

Well, gang, it's that time of week again.  It's a time filled with potential, hope, and as little work as humanly possible.  Unfortunately, this weekend will also be filled with plenty of cursing and gnashing of teeth, as Dark Souls 3 has just hit the market.  Between all the praising and whatnot, I suspect that the next couple days will play host to countless deaths of both the deserved and undeserved variety.

Hello again, everyone!  It's your venerable host, Enoch Starnes, with a very special announcement.  Starting this Monday, Co-optimus, formerly known as your Prime Source for Co-op Gaming, will be shedding its proverbial shell and, just like the majestic hermit crab, moving on to bigger and better things.  I couldn't be more excited to announce our new home:  Jaguaptimus!

Our Weekend In Gaming: Scarf Squad

As everyone knows, trendy scarves are the absolute pinnacle of fashion, so the Co-opticrew will be dedicating most of their weekend to collecting said accessories in Tom Clancy's The Division.  I hear there's also something called "third person shooting" in the game as well?  That's unconfirmed, of course, but I suppose there has to be some sort of minigame to wrap around the constant drip of neck warmers.

From turn-based to frantic bullet hell in one episode

Shadowrun Meets Renegade Ops In The Latest Episode Of F.A.L.C.O.

The Friday Awesomely Live Co-Op crew has never claimed to know anything. The other editors here at Co-Optimus are smart, witty, and have their act together. F.A.L.C.O., on the other hand, are just three average gamer dads who enjoy unwinding after a week of working for the man. So last week, when we jumped into Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown, we were surprised to find that all the missions we played were only two player!
