Sennheiser sent over their GSP 300 series gaming headset for us to check out. I’ve been putting it through the paces over the past two weeks to see how it stacks up against the likes of the Steel Series Arctis 5 and Astro A40s.
"Hate" is a strong word, and I only use it for things I absolutely despise. One of the things that I hate is seeing kids in the hospital with life threatening illnesses or injuries. I bet you hate that, too. Well, you can help. Co-Optimus is gathering a team of gamers to participate in Extra Life for the sixth straight year, and we invite you to join in on the fundraising! A Children's Miracle Network Hospital of your choice will receive all of the donations you raise on your page, and you get to play video games for an entire day!
Another weekend, another set of co-op plans for you to peruse. Warframe appears to have snuck into our hearts in the days since we last met, what with its new "open world" and "cyborg ninjas". Psh. I remember when we took coffee black, our levels linear, and our ninjas thoroughly human, and we liked it. I mean, sure, maybe we occasionally wished for broader choices and a couple laser arms, but we knew our place as consumers. We'd get our sweet exploration/robot karate games when the developers were good and ready.
Though the weather may indicate otherwise, we’re thick in the middle of fall. Fall: that mystical time of year famous for pumpkin-spiced food, horror flicks, and MMO content patches and expansions. For this issue of MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be looking at content expansions that either just launched on their corresponding live servers...
Well, it's the gosh darn weekend already. How about that? The Co-Opticrew has mostly escaped Bungie's grasp for the time being, but we're all still in the throes of Sequel Town. We're gonna have to churn through our follow-ups of choice, though, as release season is already getting hot and heavy. Don't be surprised if, one month from now, our weekend plans are replaced by desperate gurgles as we attempt to not drown in a sea of new video games.
Microsoft's "Netflix for video games" is starting to look like a better deal all the time as the catalog of titles available to play continues to grow. As of today, October 3, there are 137 games available to download and play, and of those, 48 are co-op games.
You know what they say - no matter what form of media, sequels are empirically the best and most beloved entry of any given franchise. At least, that's what our upcoming weekend plans would seem to suggest, as they're dominated by all kinds of sequels. On a different day, I would've probably lodged some sort of weak-hearted complaint about the death of originality in media, but as it turns out, all of these sequels seem to be quite good. Plus, I'm too busy gearing my galactic warlock out to feel aggrieved by much of anything.
In the midst of all the exciting new games and SNES Classics being unleashed upon the world, last Friday, ArenaNet released the second expansion for Guild Wars 2, "Path of Fire". We investigated and discussed what's new and exciting during our regular Monday night co-op stream, and in case you missed it, we've got a recap for you!
Steamforged Games, the designers behind the interesting but cooperative Dark Souls: The Board Game and Dark Souls: The Card Game, have set their sites on a new franchise: Resident Evil. While there are still 25 days to go on the Kickstarter campaign, Resident Evil 2 - The Board Game has already reached (and exceeded) it's goal of $200,639.
Well, wouldn't you know it. I straight up forgot to post our regularly scheduled Weekend in Gaming article. To be honest with you all, I thought everything had been typed up and set to go, but apparently the insanity of the workweek took my mind into an alternate dimension. To those of you who spent the weekend in an aimless shuffle, realities thrown awry by not knowing our gaming plans, I apologize.
Since Bungie decided to fill their latest game with Things That Are Actually Fun, the Co-Opticrew has found it quite a bit more difficult to detach from than the original. As such, our weekend plans continue to feature a stream of aliens, loot, and alien loot.
Hard to believe it, but it’s September already, which heralds a brand new fall season. This month on MMOCO, we’ll be looking at the console release of a new piece DLC for Elder Scrolls Online, a new raid for Secret World Legends, and a new water powerset for DC Universe Online....
