Nick Puleo - Owner

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

Chaotic Fun

Halo 5's Warzone Firefight Co-Op Mode Impressions

Halo 5: Guardians launched as what was arguably the weakest co-op experience for the series. Despite supporting four player co-op in the campaign, the game lacked local couch co-op for the very first time in any Halo game on Microsoft's console. Combined with the missing Firefight or Spartan Ops co-op mode, players were very limited in the time they could spend with their friends in a non-competitive setting.

Are Overwatch's Bots a Fair Fight? Or Cannon Fodder?

Overwatch came out early last month and was an instant hit for Blizzard. Combining colorful and fun to play characters with Team Fortress 2 style objective gameplay in a 5 vs 5 team setting instantly hooked players. For folks not wanting to jump into the competitive options, Blizzard created a dedicated co-op mode against the AI. It's basically comp-stomp co-op but it's a good way to practice playing characters.
