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.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Newest of Years

We made it!  Despite its best efforts, 2016 loosened its vice grip just long enough for us to wriggle free into the bountiful land of 2017.  What treasures await us here?  Eh, it's tough to say yet.  What we do know, though, is that there's gonna be plenty of co-op goodness to be had.  Be it via tabletop, board, or video gaming, we're gonna have tons of chances to gather a few good friends and take down some crummy incarnation of evil.

New Details Emerge For State Of Decay 2

"Wow," I remember thinking when I first gazed upon State of Decay's Steam page, "this has just about everything I'd want in a zombie survival game."  Not only did it allow you to engage in the traditional scavenging, crafting, and defending mechanics found elsewhere in the genre, it also attempted to simulate the humans living within this apocalyptic nightmare and their various relationships.  Unfortunately, it was without any sort of co-op mode, and as such, was tough to imagine fitting into my traditional gaming rotation.

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.

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.
