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.

Just your average three day weekend.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Usual

The Co-Opticrew is mostly spending this Memorial Day weekend (or "Bank Holiday", whatever that is) with some familiar titles.  This may be an indication that Summer is Truly Upon Us, but it's certainly not a bad thing.  In fact, I think it's perfectly valid to spend some time in the safe confines of games you're comfortable with.  It's a scary world out there, why not spend some time with the things you know best?

Now I just want to listen to jazz.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Love Supreme

The attention of the Co-Opticrew is devoted to titles both new and old this weekend.  The first of these is open world, third person, centered on base defense, and (somehow) not State of Decay 2.  The second is a loot shooter whose fanbase can't seem to determine whether or not they actually like it.  Why don't you take a gander at the list below and see if you can suss out which is which?

Rainbow 6 Siege Is Free To Try Out This Weekend

Of all the games in need of a "free weekend", I wouldn't necessarily place Rainbow 6 Siege near the top of the list.  In fact, it's done quite well for itself in the two and a half years since its original release.  Having carved out its own healthy community, the game has chugged along, planning out and then delivering on its post-launch content year after year.

Die For Valhalla! Will Bring Viking Violence Straight To Your Couch

If there's one thing I've learned about vikings through years of pop culture osmosis, it's their dearly held belief that any obstacle can be overcome by beating the ever-loving tar out of it.  Economic issues?  Beat the tar out of it.  Labor struggles?  Beat the tar out of it.  Encroaching neighbors?  You get the picture.

Come to me, my sweet exotic children.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Destined For The Loot Grind

Good afternoon, all.  Summer, and the suppressing, all-consuming heat it brings with it, is finally upon us.  In order to beat the heat, a few of the Co-Opticrew have found a simple solution - just straight up leave the planet.  With the new Destiny 2 expansion out, there's a whole new set of loot out there to toil away for, and toil we will.  At least it'll be in the cool comfort of our own houses.

Civilization VI Has A New Update Out Today

The latest iteration of Sid Meier's global strategy game received a relatively positive reception back when it launched in the fall of 2016, but it was still plagued by deficiencies in the series' oft-criticized AI opponents.  Over time, though, the Civilization VI developers have worked to alleviate these issues, currently culminating in the game's "Spring 2018 Update", out today.

Or your least favorite, if that's what you're into.

You Can Now Play As Your Favorite FFXV Characters In Minecraft

Based on the amount of coverage dedicated to it, you'd think that Minecraft has faded into the ether.  Honestly, though, it's because there just isn't much to say about it anymore.  It continues on its monolithic path and, based on sales figures, practically everyone in the world has had a chance to play it and determine whether or not it's for them.

For all your thiccest needs.

Our Weekend In Gaming: ThiccBot

It looks like the theme (if you can call it that) of varied choices is continuing, as hardly any of the Co-Opticrew are playing the same title over the next couple days.  Of course, the allure of slow, dense, hyper-tactical mech warfare was always going to be too much to resist, so the new Battletech title makes the only repeat appearance of the weekend.  Good luck to Nick and Locke.  May your hulls never dent and your engines remain cool.
