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.

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.

Steam Code Giveaway - Guardians of Orion and ORION: Prelude

ORION: Prelude was released back in 2012 to quite negative reviews. Over the years the developers continued to garner feedback and update the game, a process we documented in our Indie-Ana Co-Op with TREK Industries. Their next game, Guardians of Orion may be following a similar path. Since release it has transformed from a twin-stick shooter to a hybrid game where gamers can choose to play from any perspective. Both games are built around cooperative play.

Pit People Early Access Co-Op Stream Recap

Last night Locke and I jumped into the pit...Pit People to be precise. The upcoming turn based strategy game from Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth is a unique take on the tactical rpg genre that combines their famed art style and humor with a simplified and chaotic look at strategy. The game is still in early access on Steam, but we were able to take the two player co-op mode for a spin.
