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.

Two Upcoming Civilization VI Nations Get Detailed

It's always nice to see new nations get added to Civilization games.  They make the world feel just a touch larger and more varied.  They generally add fun, new strategies to both wield and plan against, as well as bringing a bit more artistic flair to the g- ah, who am I kidding?  I just like 'em cause they give me a few more targets to crush on my quest for global domination.

And with it comes a full co-op campaign!

Surprise! The First Mario And Rabbids Kingdom Battle DLC Is Out

Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a match made in heaven, if heaven was some sort of madman's laboratory in France.  Despite a bit of understandable confusion when the game was first announced, it was met with delight when it released back in August.  Between the tight "X-COM lite" gameplay and playful interpretation of the Mario universe, there was a lot to love.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Robots Of Yesteryear

Another weekend, another set of co-op plans for you to peruse.  Warframe appears to have snuck into our hearts in the days since we last met, what with its new "open world" and "cyborg ninjas".  Psh.  I remember when we took coffee black, our levels linear, and our ninjas thoroughly human, and we liked it.  I mean, sure, maybe we occasionally wished for broader choices and a couple laser arms, but we knew our place as consumers.  We'd get our sweet exploration/robot karate games when the developers were good and ready.

Hooray!(?)

Mass Effect: Andromeda On Its Way To EA And Origin Access

Mass Effect: Andromeda was... well, let's say it wasn't particularly well received when it first hit back in March of this year.  Nevertheless, BioWare put in a good amount of work to address the issues levied at it upon initial release, and now, they're hoping to entice gamers back into the ME universe by making it available to play on both EA and Origin Access sometime in the near future.

The new Tiger Woods fighting game is a bit too button-mashy for my tastes.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Combat Golf

Well, it's the gosh darn weekend already.  How about that?  The Co-Opticrew has mostly escaped Bungie's grasp for the time being, but we're all still in the throes of Sequel Town.  We're gonna have to churn through our follow-ups of choice, though, as release season is already getting hot and heavy.  Don't be surprised if, one month from now, our weekend plans are replaced by desperate gurgles as we attempt to not drown in a sea of new video games.

Rocket League Is Getting More Fast & Furious DLC

Dominic Toretto and his crew of miscreants are heisting their way back onto The League of Rocketing once more.  Despite the game's Autumn Update still being relatively fresh, the gang at Psyonix refuses to rest on their laurels.  Starting October 11th, two brand new Fast & Furious cars will be available for purchase.

This weekend brought to you by the number, "2".

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Sequel

You know what they say - no matter what form of media, sequels are empirically the best and most beloved entry of any given franchise.  At least, that's what our upcoming weekend plans would seem to suggest, as they're dominated by all kinds of sequels.  On a different day, I would've probably lodged some sort of weak-hearted complaint about the death of originality in media, but as it turns out, all of these sequels seem to be quite good.  Plus, I'm too busy gearing my galactic warlock out to feel aggrieved by much of anything.

Well, this is awkward.

Our (Past) Weekend In Gaming: The Destiny Of The Divine

Well, wouldn't you know it.  I straight up forgot to post our regularly scheduled Weekend in Gaming article.  To be honest with you all, I thought everything had been typed up and set to go, but apparently the insanity of the workweek took my mind into an alternate dimension.  To those of you who spent the weekend in an aimless shuffle, realities thrown awry by not knowing our gaming plans, I apologize.
