For the most part the game seems to feature a variety of competitive mode of play where the traditional teams of Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists face off, but must also face the zombie threat as second thread. While the game has added new weapons and characters, including female characters to play as, it still contains a lot of the classic look and feel with maps such as de_dust and de_metro present.

Hyrule Warriors Co-Op ReviewMarc Allie

Dynasty Warriors games have been generally successful for many years and through multiple console generations. Spinoff series, using the same basic gameplay elements, have had similar modest success, including Dynasty Warriors Gundam and Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage. Now, the beloved Legend of Zelda franchise has received a Dynasty Warr...

Platypus plays like a classic shmup in a bouncy cartoon world. The massive city of Collosatropolis has reached its limits and now takes up every inch of space on the continent. The air itself is even toxic, and don't get us started with the parking situation. City leaders have decided that the best solution is to invade the neighboring country of Mungola. Since they're a relatively simple folk, it should be an easy takeover. All they have for defense is a single squadron of fighter planes known as the F-27 Platypus.

Designed in the UbiArt Framework, which Rayman: Origins and Rayman: Legends also stemmed from, Child of Light stars the crowned fairy Aurora. Gameplay splits into exploration and combat. Exploration involves Aurora traversing the environment and collecting treasures, while combat plays much like a JRPG, with allies and enemies operating on an Active Time Battle system reminiscent of Grandia. Player two controls Igniculus, a friendly ball of light who assists both in battle and in exploration. While Aurora engages enemies directly, Igniculus may blind the baddies to slow their turns, interrupt their actions, or heal Aurora or her allies. During exploration, Igniculus can meld through walls to discover hidden treasures or secrets that Aurora would not be able to uncover on her own.

In ibb and obb, players take control of both ibb and obb as they traverse a strange mirrored world of platform puzzles and gravity that goes all flippedy-flop at the craziest of times. Work with your co-op partner to survive the surreal world as you two nudge things back and forth, hop through portals, use each other's heads as platforms, and play with the cute critters standing around this dual world.

This one totally slipped under my radar, but I quickly remedied it with an immediate purchase from Steam. Painkiller: Hell & Damnation has received a new set of DLC called Heaven's Above. What does it do? Turns the FPS into a top down co-opable shooter.

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!).
