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.

ibb and obb Out on August 6 and 7John Bardinelli

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.

Capsized has been out on PC for a while, but now Xbox 360 fans also have their chance to get the game.  Whilst the PC version had local 2 player co-op through the campaign, developer's Alien Trap have extended this to allow for online co-op on XBLA.

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!).

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.
