The Adventures of Shuggy is a puzzle game that challenges your wits against physical enemies, obstacles, gravity and the Xbox Live Leaderboards. There are loads of puzzle games on the market, but Shuggy looks to make its mark using a bit of strategy, and including co-op.
As Digital distribution becomes more popular, sales happen. Whenever a sale appears, many gamers instantly hit that “confirm buy” button. Without a tangible way to document how many games that actually includes, or how many of them we have time to play, we may be victims of digital hoarding.
It's the week four round-up for the month of June's blog topic: Co-Optimus Community Voice, Photograph My Gaming Rig. For the month of June we've just been asking for your photos, not your lengthy thoughts on the screen. Photos of your gaming rig - big, small, intricate or simple. The two we have this week are from staff members, a sleek PC/console office setup and a comfy couch setting where split-screen is king.
Starting today, you have one week to complete your Sonic the Hedgehog collection on Xbox LIVE Arcade for a sweet low anniversary price. This pack includes Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for 240, all the Tails co-op included. Classic style adventures have been particularly popular lately as gamers look to relive the good old days, and now you can do so with the side-scrolling style of Sonic for a great anniversary sale price.
Free to play co-op? Yes, please. In the early quarter of 2012 it looks like we’ll be seeing a very slick fantasy co-op game called Prime World from developer Nival. I sat down for some quality PC time and walked away convinced I could play this game. Not only for its content, but the style and diversity in the gameplay. Here’s what I saw.
It’s time to head back to the age of Sega Saturn with this stylish HD remake of a game called Guardian Heroes. Play as one of four adventurers through an RPG brawler for the ages, as it’s re-envisioned by the same company that originally released it in 1996. I did just that at E3 2011, as a new blood to the game without any tainted nostalgia contact lenses.
Finding a new arcade game with dual-stick shooter controls, various classes, and four player online/two player split screen local co-op is always a huge treat for this gamer. In the case of Renegade Ops at E3 from Sega, this happened. I sat in a tiny room with four T.V.s set up to play this military vehicle dual-stick shooter game, complete with four very unique vehicles and a bit of competitive c-op.
When the number one kid's show in the United States goes video game, it becomes pretty exciting news for the publisher. That's precisely the case with Power Ranger Samurai, going co-op on the Wii later this year. I took a minute to familiarize myself with the show, toys, and Wii game with NamcoBandai at E3 this year to bring back a preview of sorts.
As many other gamers, when I hear the word “dead” in the title of an upcoming game I become a bit apprehensive. “Oh, another zombie game, whoop?” is how my brain often auto-reacts, and it was no different for NeverDead, an upcoming title from Konami. Interestingly enough, there isn’t really a single zombie in this game, and it’s the main character, Bryce, who is the subject of being "NeverDead." After a brief introduction to the game from a developer, I took my time with the 20 minute demo to get my hands all over Bryce and his very removable body parts.
In the world of co-op it’s fairly rare to see a franchise with a recognizable hero, like Metal Gear Solid in our co-op realm. A year ago we saw this on the PSP with Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker and it’s about to get a high definition upgrade to the PS3 and Xbox 360, co-op intact. At E3 2011 I spent a bit of time with the PS3 version of the HD version of Peacewalker and brought back some impressions.
It's true that many gamers love to show off their stuff. Whether you have ten tv's, ten xboxes, and loads of arcades in your house, or a more modest approach with a Television and just a few consoles. I'd go so far as to say size and content doesn't matter as long as you use it. I have known a few tech addicts (you know who you are)who buy things that immediately collect dust. Anyway, our promoted blog of the week is from a staffer who fits in the modest setup category.
Who here wants to play with a little bit of gravity? How about some 2-player co-op third-person shooter? You too, huh? Let me relay to you a little experience I had with a little game called Inversion here at E3 2011.
Comp-stomp co-op is becoming a fairly prominent form of co-op in PC-heavy genres like tower defense and RTS's, so the combo style game Defenders of Ardania is exactly that in beautiful 4-player compstomp co-op on platforms across the board. The demo was playable on iPad since that version is furthest along, but PC, XBLA, and PSN will host the game as well.
Today at E3 one of my highlight appointments was with Lexis Numerique for their survival horror game Amy. Amy features two main protagonist characters, but they interact with each other and are not independently playable characters. At any rate, I went on an in-depth tour of the world of Amy, and I'm going to explain it to you anyway.
Ubisoft's 2011 E3 conference was an interesting experience this year, as the 25 year aniversary of the company has appeared. As such the show was a lot of retro-style quirks and interesting throwbacks to their original games - at least one of which is co-op now.
