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.

High Quality is an understatement.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro with GameDAC Impressions

We have reviewed a lot of SteelSeries headsets over the past ten years on Co-Optimus. Over the course of that time we’ve seen the headset manufacturer from Chicago, IL improve on their designs over and over again. Steadily the quality has increased too with headsets now featuring a very premium feel. Their latest headset is no exception, adding to their Arctis lineup is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro with GameDAC; this is premium headset designed to compete directly with the likes of Astro Gaming’s A40 TX lineup. And compete they do.

[E3 2018] - Crackdown 3 Screens and Video, Delay till 2019

It's unfortunate, but Crackdown 3 has been delayed until 2019 - moving it out of this fall as originally planned. The game was originally slated to launch alongside the Xbox One X last year, but has seen troubled development. If the latest screens and videos are any indication though - the third game in this cult classic franchise might be worth the wait.

Super wide. Super immersive.

AOC AGON AG352UCG6 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor Impressions

It was almost five years ago that I first sampled the ultra-wide monitor space - a resolution that puts your aspect ratio at 21:9 over the standard 16:9 most monitors are today. Gaming and technology has progressed quite a bit since then - with resolution, design, and refresh rate all improving. So when I got the chance to check out the latest Ultra-Wide gaming panel from AOC, the 35” AG352UCG6, I jumped at the chance.
