Nick Puleo - Owner

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.

Nick's resume includes over 6 years of gaming coverage experience, including leadership roles at many prominent gaming outlets. He has created numerous websites to feed his insatiable appetite for world domination, of which, is coming along nicely.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for April, 2016

To much rejoicing, Dark Souls 3 came out last month. That means it was a month focused on the dark and gritty series with plenty of discussion as to its merits of cooperative implementation. It was a pretty quiet month otherwise, but still you may have missed some of the news of upcoming games. May is looking strong with Battleborn kicking off the month.

Tom Clancy's The Division: The C-Team - Nick Gets a Scarf!

The team has been progressing nicely, now in the upper teens levels we can see the difficulty really start to ramp up in Tom Clancy's The Division. We progress through midtown cleaning up the mean streets of NYC. It's interesting to see the slow progression of our team specializing based on their skills, but I can say one thing, we sure are efficient.

Meet The C-Team: Tom Clancy's The Division Co-Op Stream

Last night the Co-Opticrew dove into the newly release shooter, The Division. To be called a shooter though isn't quite an accurate description of all the game entails. The game is a careful blend of other titles with a mission and world system similar to Destiny, a loot system that borrows from Action/RPGs, and a crafting system that's part MMO and part Army of Two's gun customization. Needless to say we barely feel like we scratched the surface here.
