I like to consider myself a Master of Bargains. This is no proud boast, but the label given to someone who spends far too much time hunting around in bargain bins. I am Samoza, and I am a bargain addict. I love the thrill of finding a cheap game and taking it home. Many times these games have been dismissed by the critics, but at £10/$17 who can argue? With co-op in mind, I have found myself buying two copies of the same game so that I can inflict one on a friend. The likes of Tom Clancy’s HAWX and Tenchu Z have been bought in duplicate for under £20; both of these were nice co-op titles. Could my latest purchase keep up the standard for my cheapo buys? Co-Optimus warned me that Fairytale Fights had its problems – was I right to dismiss them? I have often found that most games are better played in co-op. Even something as repetitive and dull as the wobbly flesh men in Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom, are made amusing by having a pal or three along. “What’s that?” You cry in anguish. “A wobbly fleshman,” is the obvious reply. With this in mind, any game that is playable in co-op has some merit, even if it is a backdrop for you and some friends to have a chat. As a man I refuse to speak on the telephone, but over LIVE, its just plain politeness. Therefore, for a fun co-op experience all I need is a co-op pal and a decent server.
