Andrew started gaming with a second-hand Atari 2600 and a shoe box full of dusty cartridges. He remembers playing the original Street Fighter in actual arcades and when jump-kick, sweep was best combo in a fighting game. He thinks Zelda II: The Adventures of Link was one of the most under appreciated games on the NES, and usually begins and ends his argument by screaming "Downward Thrust!"
Andrew got serious about co-op gaming while in college, pursuing his Creative Writing degree. He realized it was easier to get a novice into gaming if he was helping them and not virtually murdering their on screen persona every few seconds. He has had several real world jobs that had nothing to do with video games. He decided that was pretty lame. He now writes for the internet and is a full time Dad. His wife and main co-op gaming partner is the person who keeps his writing coherent, preventing it from becoming a cavalcade of obscure references to things he thinks everyone should know. Reading his work is scientifically proven to make you a better person.
Hey, look, Destiny news! Remember Destiny? You know, one of the "winners" of the recycled crap party that was last year's holiday release line up? I sure do. I put over 100 billion hours into that game, and I'd like all but about 20 of them back. Oh, well. Destiny was, and I'm sure will once again be, my digital drug of choice.
This week we have a new game for the hardcore and new packaging for the handsome. Plus Metal Slug.
As I keep telling my friends, Helldivers is a damn fine game. I enjoy everything about the tactical twin-stick shooter--from the hilarious friendly fire incidents to the last second extractions. It's a blast.
Do you need more Dragon Balls in your life? Wait, that's a stupid question. Of course you do!
This week's CORA features less subscriptions and more co-op. Always more co-op.
Helldivers is a badass of a co-op game. Arrowhead Game Studios’ tactical twin-stick shooter drops up to four players on to hostile planets with two goals in mind: complete objectives and survive the mission....
Helldivers is a new Sony exclusive that offers a tactical take on the twin-stick shooter genre. You'll need all the help you can get as you wage war against three alien races who threaten the immaculate liberty of Super Earth.
It's a good week to go off and have some co-op fun in real life. Not much is hitting the store shelves or download scene as far as cooperative gameplay is concerned, but there are a few things to get you by. There's also a nice selection of single player games launching this week if that's your thing. I won't judge.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the latest video game spawned from one of the most popular anime series of all time, especially if your formative years took place in the late 90s. Spoiler alert: It's alright....
Making your way around Dragon Ball Xenoverse's Toki Toki City can be a little confusing for newcomers. Well, not really. There are only three areas-- but figuring out how to get into a nice round of cooperative face-punching, and more importantly, getting credit for it, is a little enigmatic. We're here to help.
