With the real world crumbling around us, what better time to switch on your PC and play countless hours of co-op Civilization V? The latest Humble Bundle package lets you buy Civ 5 in all its ilks for a lowly sum.
When he finally managed to get a go on his older brother’s brand new ZX Spectrum, unbeknownst to Sam he was embarking on a lifetime love of games and being British. When Sir Clive Sinclair stopped making computers Sam had to admit that he needed to buy some consoles made further afield and he has not looked back since; owning every single console since the Super Nintendo.
As one of four, he learned fast to share a multi-tap and play games such as ‘Bomberman’ and ‘Snowboard Kids’. Now as a Librarian he believes in world peace and harmony, shunning the world of competitive gaming in favour of co-op. You can find him online in a variety of places from shooting terrorists in ‘Rainbow 6 Vegas’ to tending his garden in ‘Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise’.
As a Librarian, Sam is also an avid reader and would encourage you all to try a book once in a while (and keep him in a job).
Most Co-Optimus readers who also own an Xbox One will likely have a Live Gold membership as this is the only way to allow them to play online co-op. However, if you are on the fence, from 16-19th February Gold is open to all, as is access to Rocket League.
I love February 15th as it is the furthermost date from having to worry about Valentine's Day again. Along with the card and chocolate that you forgot, you may have also not noticed that Dead Rising 4 had a new update that included some free sweetheart content.
Xbox Live's Games with Gold does not only provide access to older games, but sometimes it offers games on day of release such as Super Dungeon Brothers. However, modern gaming means that the released product is not always the finished one and this was one title that needed some tweaks. Perhaps the latest update will make the game .... fun.
Boy, January was a quiet month and February has started the same way, but in a mere two weeks we get one of the year's behemoths; Halo Wars 2. Microsoft are not shy in promoting their exclusive titles and they prove generous again with their new launch trailer for the game.
There is nothing quite like nestling down somewhere comfortable and having some time to relax. Normally a book would help, or perhaps just have a nap, but the developers of Sniper Elite 4 prefer to take a rifle with them! At least this will help in their Development Diary for the game's 4 player co-op Survival Mode.
Do you ever watch a trailer for a vintage inspired game and think it does not provide enough information? Well, fear not as the new trailer for Double Dragon IV waxes lyrical on the game's paper thin premise and vast array of enemy types.
The fierce battle between local and online co-op gamers has waged for eons. There are those that like to sit in their pants and play online and those that like to sit in their pants next to three friends and play offline. Well rip off your kecks and settle in for a video all about the 4 player local co-op game Unit 4.
