What Happens to Abandoned Multiplayer Games?Guest Author: Isa

Have you ever really enjoyed playing an online multiplayer game, only to have the server abandoned? This is one of the most frustrating aspects of online multiplayer games, but it does happen to all games eventually. Sometimes companies feel the need to officially move on from a video game and shut it down. Whether this is due to poor sales, a new ...

Like some sort of post-apocalyptic scavengers, the Co-opticrew will be scouring the Summer Steam Sale for tiny bits of morsel to stow away in hidden pockets.  Occasionally, when we're all alone, we'll pull them out for a brief moment and just look at them.  Never consuming, only admiring.  Such are the ways of PC gaming.

Gamertag Radio spoke with Aaron Greenberg, Marketing Head for Xbox, about some of the nitty gritty details for the program. The full interview can be listened to below (it's only 20 minutes and worth it), but here are the big bullet points:

Who'll be the ultimate winner, here?  I guess we'll all find out on Monday, when Eric comes loping into our office chatroom asking if we've "got any spare game announcements", or when Jason announces that the conference in L.A. allowed him to "ascend to a higher plane of gaming" and that he's "leaving us cretins behind for a life of attending eSports afterparties and sailing on yachts with Cliffy B."

Summer’s officially here. We all know what that means: sun, heat, and MMO expansions. For this installment of MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be looking at upcoming expansions for Lineage II and Star Trek Online and discuss Wildstar’s launch on Steam....

The bad news - we don't have any confirmed co-op modes in any of these games despite the previous ones showcasing cooperative play in either separate modes or campaign play.

Please, please remain seated at all times.  Remember what happened to Jacob Upstein when he happened to be grabbing a soda during the
Scalebound trailer?  Poor fella launched straight into space and is currently orbiting the ISS. If at all possible, maintain your distance from friends and family during especially intense moments.  Last year, Lauren Cruxley yelled "Let's do the Shenmue Shuffle!" into her husband's ear 83 consecutive times until he finally called up his lawyer and drew up a restraining order on the spot. Always remember to keep your expectations tempered.  Let us never forget the time that Donald Freeman rolled his eyes so hard at the Fable: The Journey announcement that he became legally blind.  We pray that fate does not strike another.

Right, now that's out of the way, let's get to the action.  This weekend, we'll be filling our non-coverage hours with bouts of DC infighting, pathfinding, and waaaaagh ...ing.  Check it!

I kid, of course.  Everyone knows that, as video game journalists, we subsist exclusively on the constant high we receive every time a new story breaks.  At this point, if Jason doesn't report on a patch or DLC pack in the next twenty-four hours, the come-down would probably kill him.  And Tally?  You don't want to see Tally when she hasn't gotten her monthly dosage of MMO updates.  We assume it's pretty bad, anyway.  No one's actually seen her in that state and lived to tell the tale.

If you are anything like me, you are approaching the level of burnout with zombie themed games. From board games to video games to comics and TV, zombies are literally everywhere. There are several co-op board games featuring zombies, including three we have already covered in this column: Zombies Keep Out!, Dead Panic, and Zombicide. What does Dea...
