Boards, and the games that come with them.

Our Weekend in Gaming: Summer Doldrums Edition

When summer rages all around us, the "New Games" bucket gets pretty sparse. The Doldrums are in full swing here at Co-Optimus, and with no new games to feast upon we've got to rely on our friends and family for amusement. Maybe play some games of the non-video variety as well. Nick's out of town, and Enoch's toiling away in the Roleplaying Mines at Gen Con. The rest of us plan on pecking away at our backlogs, adventuring in space, and playing all sorts of games that involve boards.

OWC 1TB Hybrid Upgrade Kit for Xbox One Review

Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launched with just 500GB of disk storage. And while this might have sounded like an enormous amount to owners of the previous generation of consoles, the jump from these older boxes in terms of graphical fidelity meant this space would only be enough for a dozen or less games. We’re now just starting to see systems ship with 1TB internally. If your’re an early adopter you can add storage yourself to you Xbox One simply by plugging in a USB 3.0 drive. But which one do you choose?

Warlocks vs Shadows Is Getting A Musical Guest

The music and video games industries certainly aren't strangers to one another.  Be it through Fez and Disasterpeace, Red Dead Redemption and Jose Gonzalez, or Destiny and the least conspiracized Beatle, the two have found many ways to intertwine over the years.  Continuing this tradition is Warlocks vs Shadows, a four player co-op game whose latest update will throw Venezuelan DJ Zardonic into the mix.

Sumo Sultan Impressions

Sometimes writing about games gives you the opportunity to write about other things. We regularly receive PC and console peripherals, and we've racked up quite a few headphone reviews over the years, but furniture? That's new to me. Recently, the folks at Sumo sent Co-Optimus HQ their Sultan, a large, stylish beanbag chair meant to be the ultimate place to relax in your home while you game, watch TV, or generally be as slothful as possible. I've had it for about two weeks now, and have put it through just about all the paces.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Cars Playing Soccer Edition

The year is 2143.  The Intercontinental Earth Union is celebrating it's 50th anniversary by putting on the most anticipated Rocket League match to date, and it's a heated one.  Onlookers are devouring popcorn that tastes like if a Werther's was dipped in foie gras.  Fireworks are exploding into reruns of Dharma and Greg.  Cars are ramming into both gigantic soccer balls and each other.  It's rad.  Everything is amazing.  The future rules.  Go Earth.
