Enoch Starnes - Editor and Streamer

Depending on who you ask, Enoch Starnes began his hobby in gaming with either Tiger Electronics' Madden Football 95 or Link's Awakening for the Game Boy Pocket. It was soon after this that the tendrils of co-op gaming sank deep into him via extensive sessions of Zombies Ate My Neighbors on the SNES. Since then, he has spent countless hours in co-op gaming with friends both online and local. Be it the Tales series, Civilization, FIFA, or Gauntlet, he has searched constantly for games that allow he and his friends to goof off, work together, and tell each other really dumb jokes. He's immensely proud to be able to channel this passion on Co-Optimus and hopes that his love for the genre will extend to you too.

We're like doomsday preppers, but with video games, and also we're not insane.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Stockpiling

The Co-Opticrew has begun to emerge from their various comfort food-induced comas, which means that the preparation for a harsh winter must begin.  We've already stocked up on almost all the necessities (food, water, firewood, virginal blood to conduct our nightly Yuletide rituals, bedding, etc), so that leaves just one final item:  video games.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Peaceful Transition

Ah, and we're back once more.  Soothing, isn't it, coming back to this little bastion of peace once a week before diving straight into a weekend of debauchery?  There's some small comfort in knowing that every single Friday, you can read about the Co-Opticrew's plans before transitioning into those of your own.  As you read through each answer, let your workweek troubles fall away until you're left with nothing but high hopes and a huge thing of tequila.  Where'd that tequila come from?  Good question.  I can't tell you it appeared because you read all of our responses, but I also can't tell you it didn't.

No more will you punch a zombie, only to find out you were really slamming your head into a wall forty feet away.

Dead Island Definitive Edition Gets Co-Op Stability Patch

There are plenty of times where network stability is crucial, but none moreso than when a dozen zombies are bearing down on you, and your online ally is the only thing standing between them and your soft, succulent brain matter.  Unfortunately, Dead Island Definitive Edition hasn't been up to snuff in the network stability department since it launched earlier this year.

The Final DLC Is Out For LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The latest of LEGO's licensed gaming exploits has finally reached its conclusion, as the last DLC is now out for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  What's next for everyone's favorite building block company?  Who's to say.  Perhaps it's LEGO Mad Max, or maybe LEGO The Revenant.  Personally, I'd be pretty excited for LEGO Steve Jobs.  I feel like all those cutesy figurines could really work wonders on Danny Boyle's biopic.

Where will those wacky operators end up next?

Latest Rainbow 6 Siege DLC Map Teased; Operators Leaked

Slowly, but surely, the Rainbow 6 Siege crew is running out of places to protect.  The last DLC pack took them to Brazil, and now they're jet-setting all the way over to Japan to defend innocent civilians from those dastardly terrorists.  Soon enough, this top secret anti-terrorism squad will end up in Hell, rooting out ne'er-do-wells at their very core.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Kamehamehuh?

It's the freakin' weekend!  You know what that means, gang.  It's time to dance in the fall leaves, drink cider on porches, and further our all-digital futures.  Gears of War 4 continues to eke out an existence in the caverns and alcoves of our collective minds, but it too shall fall away with time.  What better way to replace it than with Civilization 6, a grand tale of empires rising and colliding and - ... hold on a second.

New Weapon Class And Broette Trailers Out For Super Dungeon Bros

Sometimes, you and your bros (or broettes) need to rent a cabin out in the wilderness, enjoy the scenery, and just relax.  Other times, you and your bros have to grab your crossbows/swords/hammers/wands and just stomp the everloving crap out of whatever baddies stand in your way.  The latter of these scenarios falls under the purview of Super Dungeon Bros, which just got a few new trailers to show off all that vicious weaponry you'll be using to accomplish said stomping, as well as a few new characters to wield them.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Civilization Remix ft. Sean Bean

Hello, again!  We've arrived once more at the end of the week, and just in time, too, as Sean Bean's own Civilization VI is finally out.  It seems like most of the Co-Opticrew will be busy with other ventures this weekend, but sooner or later, they'll hear the sweet siren-song of Sid Meier's latest release.  They'll try to resist.  Oh, how they'll try.  But none will be able to withstand it for too long.  I'd estimate that, about three weeks from now, the Weekend in Gaming posts will begin to dwindle as the staff slowly drifts out of reality.  Soon after, we'll assimilate with the Gandhiverse, completing the cyber-ritual and finally deifying Sid Meier.
