For the past month or so, I've been in a bit of a gaming funk. My loyal ten-year old co-op partner and I have pretty much wrapped up all the games in our collection. The War in the North was ended successfully, and we managed to survive Raam's Shadow, leaving very little in the backlog. So, we scrolled through the long list of Xbox Live Arcade games to see what struck our fancy for our gaming time this week. There are literally dozens of games there that are perfect for short bursts of co-op gameplay before dinner.

This week in co-op, International Lag and Getting to Know youStaff

If there is any one thing this site is familiar with, it’s the challenge of coordinating two or more people to play together. That is, after all, the focus. Sometimes even careful planning can go astray when time zones get in the way. This week in co-op Kat and Sam discover just how interesting, and worth while a cross continental exchange can be.

This week's Xbox Live deal of the week is Zombie Apocalypse on the Xbox Live Arcade.  This was an under appreciated 4 player co-op title that hit last Fall, featuring a top down view into a Left 4 Dead style game.  Players choose one of four characters, and take on swarms of zombies in numerous levels with various set pieces like an airplane that can suck up zombies or an electric fence that does the dirty work for you.

Konami announced yesterday that their 4 player co-op shooter that's "Smash TV meets Left 4 Dead" will be released on the Xbox LIVE Arcade and Playstation Network next Wednesday, Sept. 23, and Thursday, Sept. 24, respectively.  The twin stick shooter that puts you and your friends in the middle of 55 days-worth (read levels) of zombie attacks will retail for 800 MS points and $9.99 on the PSN.  Personally, I'm looking forward to slaying a few more zombies before Left 4 Dead 2 arrives, and the idea of luring zombies into a wood chipper, as highlighted in the Playstation Blog's interview with John Slavin, sounds too fun to pass up.  A copy of the release announcement, as well as a gallery of screenshots from the game, can be found after the break.

The Zombie Apocalypse, that is. Or, should we say "another" Zombie Apocalypse? Ready or not, here they come to bite, swipe, moan, and growl their way onto your Xbox LIVE Arcade or PSN account. While looking at The Zombie Apocalypse, you'll be heavily reminded of your time in Left 4 Dead, only with a requirement to survive for as long as possible (up to 55 days) instead of simply making it to a rescue vehicle.

While Zombie Apocalypse won't win any awards for most thought provoking game title, it just might be a new favorite on our list of co-op games.  Published by Konami, Zombie Apocalypse pits up to four players against the zombie horde in a twin stick shooter for the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
