Nick Puleo - Owner

Owner, creator, and mad scientist of Co-Optimus, Nick has spent the last 10 years working on Co-Optimus.

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 has been covering video games since 2004, including leadership roles at prominent gaming outlets. He has created numerous websites to feed his insatiable appetite for world domination, of which, is coming along nicely.

Overwatch's "Uprising" Mode a Bit of a Disappointment

Overwatch has added a limited time co-op mode called "Uprising."  The mode is a co-op arcade event that features wave-based, defend a point, style gameplay for four players. You'll be tasked with defeating the nefarious Null Sector using Tracer,  Torbjörn, Mercy, and Reinhardt in the default mode. An "All Heroes" mode allows you to choose any character.

Star Wars Battlefront II Announced, Dated

Electronic Arts has announced Star Wars Battlefront II for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. The game will span all three "trilogies" of Star Wars titles allowing fans to experience all of the classic battles alongside some new ones. Listening to fan feedback the game has a full featured single player campaign that bridges the story of Return of the Jedi to The Force Awakens, dropping you in the boots of an Imperial elite special forces unit.

I'm a turtle, you're a turtle, what about the skunk?

Scalpers: Turtle & the Moonshine Gang Let's Play Recap

From the title of the game, Scalpers: Turtle & the Moonshine Gang could be nothing else than a western themed video game or classic cartoon. Maybe it's a little of both. The twin-stick style shooter hit early access on Steam recently and drops players into the boots of several creatures in an overtly stylish and surprisingly polished game, despite the early version.

Three players...is not enough.

Mass Effect: Andromeda - Co-Op Missions Video Recap and Impressions

Mass Effect: Andromeda has built on the co-op mode of its predecessor, giving it a slightly different feel than Mass Effect 3, but retaining a lot of what made that mode a ton of fun. Combined with the new cover and movement system the action oriented nature of Andromeda's four player co-op mode is a solid, if often frustrating, shooter.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Patch #2 is Live

If there is one thing I truly dislike about Ghost Recon Wildlands its the writing. The whole thing feels a bit too sophmoric for me. Perhaps I'm just getting curmudgin in my old age, I'm sure some folks find jokes about wooden cat legs being used for unspeakable acts as hilarious. Good news! If you'd rather not hear about the radio DJ's silly antics, you can turn them off thanks two a new update.
