Remember that time Fable III was given away for free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers? Looks like the deal will officially end on June 30th. Fear not, though, for Microsoft is using the opportunity to kick off its Games with Gold program. Each month on the 1st and 16th until the end of the year, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get a game for free. Pretty simple. Fable III is short of retroactively shoehorned into the program, but July promises both Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 3, which isn't too shabby.
Saints Row IV opens five years after the events of Saints Row: The Third. The leader of the Saints (that's you) is now the President of the United States of America, your Vice President is Keith David, you've just cured cancer (or fed the hungry), punched an annoying congressman in the face, and you're on your way to the daily press conference. Suddenly, aliens attack, and our 30 minutes of hands-on time with the game begins.
Yesterday, Nintendo announced at their E3 presentation that Bayonetta 2, the sequel to hit action game by Platinum Games, would feature a 2-player mode. While some sources claim that "co-op" was announced, other sources state that simply "two-player mode" was mentioned. So while it's looking promising for co-op, let's hope we don't find ourselves in the "co-op" versus "multiplayer" semantic confusion that a lot of other people throw around (but not us, never us!).
Resident Evil: Revelations was something of a mixed bag for RE fans. On the one hand, it was a "return to roots" in some ways as all the classic design mechanics of the original (like "tank" controls and tight corridors packed with foes) returned. On the other, it was still a modern RE game and that meant some weird plotting and bad voice acting. One of the best features of the game, however, was its Raid mode, which allowed you to team up with a friend and fight your way through missions in order to get money/points so you could upgrade and clear more missions. The mode included the ability to select from a few of the game's more memorable characters, along with some alternative outfits that can be unlocked.
Fable 3 is currently free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers! Microsoft flipped the switch earlier today with no official word on how long the giveaway will last, so get to grabbin' while the grabbin's good. To download, fire up your console and head to the On Demand section of the marketplace. There you'll see Fable 3 glistening like a bit of treasure on the ground.
Company of Heroes 2 is the sequel to the much beloved RTS Company of Heroes. Since the first game was so highly regarded, no one disputes the fact that Company of Heroes 2 has some major commando boots to fill. Is it up to the task? According to our own Nick and Locke, things were looking extremely promising when they went hands-on with the game at PAX Prime 2012. The good news continued when a new mode was announced for the game called Theater of War which has 9 missions per faction that can be played cooperatively. Quite a quantitative improvement over the lonely cooperative mission of Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor.
Good news for Rayman fans who hate sitting in front of the TV to play games. The famously delayed and formerly Wii U-exclusive platformer Rayman Legends is now heading to PlayStation Vita, releasing alongside the console versions later this year. The game packs all of the same content as its non-portable companions, adding in some extras because Ubisoft probably still feels a little guilty about that whole delay business. Let's just be quiet and milk this until launch day, ok?
Batman and pals swooped in some time ago on most consoles, but Wii U owners had to wait for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes to arrive. Why is this? Because, Wii U owners not only get the LEGO Batman 2 of the other consoles, but also the added ability to use their Wii U GamePad to play in 2 player co-op.
Zen Pinball 2 is one of the most played games I have owned on the 360, it is highly addictive and designed to an exceptional standard by Zen Studios. If the developer can bring this expertise to the upcoming 2 player co-op game CastleStorm, we are all in for a treat. CastleStorm is out on the 29th May and the Co-Optimus review will follow soon after, for now check out the informative Dev Diary.
Lately you may have been wondering what the heck to do with your Vita. Perhaps you are like me, having played a ton of Soul Sacrifice, and wondering what kind of games are on your radar in the near future. Well, add a cooperative game to the list of up and coming Vita Titles. Disney Interactive is porting over Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two to the Playstation Vita quite soon. In fact, it will be released next month on June 18th.
The second map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, titled "Uprising," was released a couple weeks back on the Xbox 360. This $15 pack included with it a new co-op mode, Mob of the Dead, that kept with the Black Ops zombie theme we've previously seen, but with an Italian twist this time around. Set in the 1920s on the well-known prison island of Alcatraz, players step into the role of one of four gangsters (each voiced by a famous celebrity) and try to fight their way out. Nasty traps, gnarly weapons, and plenty of barbed wire covered undead inmates lie in wait for you and your friends.
It's almost May, and that means horror is on the way once again. The revamped and improved version of the 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations will be coming out later next month for all major consoles and PC. Like the 3DS original that came out some time ago, this version of Revelations will also come with a playable demo. ...
In the mood for some more Hell and Damnation? Good news then - the fourth DLC for Painkiller Hell & Damnation is now available. Entitled Full Metal Rocket, the DLC will net purchasers a goodly amount of content, as requested by the players. This includes HD remakes of three classic maps (called Mines, Meatless, and Blink) which can be played in a variety of modes (Survival, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and a new Survival mode), new skins, a new weapon, and one all-new HD map.
As release hour approaches for the brand new Star Trek video game, another trailer has appeared to shed some light on its creation. We already know the Gorn are back and are pretty angry (could you imagine a happy Gorn?), but a few new details about one of the main characters, Tamar, are teased, along with her history with Spock. Events in the game take place after the 2009 film but before Star Trek Into Darkness, so there's a bit of wiggle room when it comes to crazy things happening.
The kind folks over at the Behemoth have sent over 10 codes for their recently released co-op platformer, BattleBlock Theater. It's a game we've been watching anxiously for quite some time and saw it evolve over a few years. Now out exclusively for Xbox Live Arcade you and a friend can team up as "prisoners" forced to perform on stage in a variety of platforming and puzzles. You can also find some characters from your other favorite Behemoth game.
