One of the issues that constantly arises here at Co-Optimus headquarters is defining exactly what is, and is not, co-op. A good portion of feedback we get from users of the site is “why isn’t game X in your database? It’s totally co-op” when it really isn’t. According to this blurb from our “About” page:...

We all know that co-op gaming was invented in 2003 by Al Gore. The back of that placemat in IHOP told us so. It turns out, however, that some really smart computer people managed to pull off some crafty multiplayer tricks back in the 1970s, creating some of the first video games with co-op modes. And then there's us, the spoiled gamers that we ...

Having personally read the first few chapters (and you can read the first here), I was quickly hooked into what the author was telling. The book wastes zero time setting the stage, and in fact, it almost starts on a bit of a climax and a cliffhanger all in one. The first few chapters whizzed by with relative ease and Mr. Glaser's writing style is both easy to read and descriptive while not being overbearing at the same time. Obviously given the subject matter of the book it was easy to relate to some of the early themes, so that no doubt helped fuel my desire to keep reading.

It all started with an article from TechCrunch called “The Console Market is in Crisis.” The quick of it is this - comparing this generation of consoles to last in terms of raw sales numbers shows a steep decline in total sales when looking at the North American market. All console sales combined were down almost 60% with the market shr...

The Astro A38s are being first released as a beta product, inviting users to provide feedback as to what will be a more fully featured product when it's actually released later this year. While most companies obviously test their products rigorously before release, it's a rare case they invite people to actually purchase a beta product and then directly affect the final retail device. While the beta period is over (though the pre-production models are still available at the 50% discount) - we thought we'd give you some impressions of the device in the months we've been using them.
