How VR Could Change Co-Op Gaming ForeverNick Puleo

For gamers, VR will lift the experience by uniting them together in parallel worlds. As well as being able to exist in the same virtual space, the new VR will project gamers’ real world images into the very space they occupy. This means that while your friend may be in Japan while you’re in America, you can meet, see and hear one another’s presence in the same space. It’s incredible stuff and the power of co-op VR doesn’t stop there. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the areas where VR and the co-op experience are going to alter how we live and interact forever.

Given current trends, I also suspect that the Co-Opticrew will be entirely tabletop focused by 2018.  Between the meta-CCGs (collectible card games), the RPGs (role-playing games), and the CFGs (Cthulhu fhtagn games), our surfaces of choice will be getting quite the workout.

This month on MMO Co-Opportunities we take a look at more content pouring in for pre-existing MMOs. The popular Super Adventure Box returns to Guild Wars 2, recently released Black Desert Online gets a full-fledged expansion free to all players, and a new chapter is released for SWTOR: Knights of the Fallen Empire. It’s a good time to be a pl...

Those of us not trapped in Lovecraftian nightmares are spending our time watching Remedy's fake television shows, cleaning up the streets of New York, and making author appearances!  That's right, when we're not devoting our every waking moment to you co-op enthusiasts, some of us spend our slivers of free time writing fancy shmancy readin' books.  Who would've thought?

That's right, we're moving away from those old and ratty co-op games and digging up our old and ratty Atari Jaguars in the hopes of becoming the hottest spot on the web for Jaguar and Jaguar-adjacent news.  Starting as early as next week, you can start digging into Mike Katsufrakis' thinkpiece on White Men Can't Jump, its legacy, and its influence on modern gaming tropes.  Begging for more?  Well don't miss Jason Love's "Jagu-ana and the Zool 2 Interview", in which Jason gets down and dirty with hotshot developers, Gremlin Graphics, on just how Zool 2 became the best-selling game of our lifetimes.

Joe, the multi-formed fellow that he is, will be supplying our joy through his tabletop and many virtual incarnations.  This weekend will be filled with toque-hunting, puzzle-solving, and Pokemon-punching, which sounds like the perfect cure for our various ailments.

For those who haven't dedicated their firstborn to the "Cult of the Clance", this weekend will involve wargaming, Souls-likes, and (of course) Fire Emblem Fates.  Anyone interested in both Orcs and neon lights should be sure to check out F.A.L.C.O. tonight as they crack into the meaty bits of Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown.

Co-Optimus hath wronged us! How could this be? Is it an error in the database? Do we need a mod? These questions were answered the following day when we found that we stopped just one mission short of the four-player missions. At the time, however, we had hope that the next mission might be four player, so we pressed onward only to be disappointed twice more.

This month, all our stories for MMO Co-Opportunities happen to focus on beginnings and endings. It seems rather fitting, since we’re starting Spring of a new year. We look at a somewhat rocky launch for Black Desert Online, the announcement of the cancellation of EverQuest Next, and a long-time ArenaNet game designer leaving the studio. ...

Many of us are in the closing stages of our respective Fire Emblem Fates campaigns, so soon enough, we'll be able to move on to the other two campaigns.  On my estimation, that puts us returning to regular video game coverage at... let's say 2018?  Those who aren't shutting off their 3DS's in rage seem to be putting a lot of time into The Division and Shadowrun Chronicles - Boston Lockdown, the latter of which is currently available in the Humble Jumbo Bundle 6.  If you're interested in grabbing a few buddies and running some shadows yourselves, be sure to check out Eric's stream tonight for a taste of the action.

There are a variety of games available on the site, from multiplayer racers to cooperative shooters, that are sorted into a few different categories similar to Netflix categories. All you have to do to get started is go to the airconsole.com website on your PC and your smartphone, press the big power button, put the code into your phone, and get to gaming. Most of the games are local play only, as they require all players to be able to view the screen, though you can get around some of that using streaming services like Twitch.
