Owner, creator, and mad scientist of Co-Optimus, Nick spends every spare minute devoted to gaming.

Co-Op gaming has been in his blood since the days of Sega Genesis playing Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. Of course the fond memories of the boardwalk arcade and Raiden II, Aliens vs. Predator, and Ninja Turtles didn't hurt either.

Official Apology Issued

Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass Owners Get Free Game, Everyone Gets Free DLC

Today is a day for apologies apparently. Ubisoft have issued a formal apology for the state of Assassin's Creed Unity at launch - one in which an upcoming patch is needed to fix over 300 bugs. Obviously people are upset and wonder how a AAA title can be released in such an unfinished state. It looks like Ubisoft wants to try to make amends by offering some free goodies.

Matchmaking issues persist

343 Issues Formal Apology for Halo: The Master Chief Collection Issues

While we found Halo: The Master Chief Collection to be an amazing value and a nearly perfect cooperative experience, the same joy we got from playing it could not be said for everyone. If your focus for the game is on Halo's competitive multiplayer you've been stuck in a matchmaking limbo since the game launched two weeks ago and dealing with constant frustration as you wait for the game to give you a match to play. Those issues still persist today and 343 Industries' Bonnie Ross has decided to formally apologize for not getting things fixed yet.

Dragon Age Inquisition Co-Op Impressions and Videos

Dragon Age: Inquisition by all accounts is an incredibly large game. Claims of over one hundred hours of gameplay by the publisher are apparently, not exaggeration. And that's just for the single player. Dragon Age: Inquisition also sports a four player online co-op mode where players team up and dive into pseudo-random dungeons for loot and glory. We'll have a full review of Dragon Age: Inquisition in the coming week or so, but for now, we wanted to give you our impressions of just the cooperative gameplay.
