The new Star Trek game hit store shelves yesterday.

Gamers who pre-order the gonzo open-world extravaganza that is Saints Row 4 will receive a few patriotic bonuses. The Commander in Chief pack will include an Uncle Sam Suit, a Screaming Eagle Jet, and the 'Merica weapon - Funny, I always thought it was 'Murica. I blame the 'Merican public school system. The super powered 'Merica gun and the Screaming Eagle jet seem about right, but I was expecting some assless chaps for the Uncle Sam Suit. Pretty, tame, Volition. Anyway, take a look at the goodies below. You can salute if you want to.

Here's something you don't see every day: a browser game with online co-op support! Ninja Kiwi has taken the ever-popular Bloons TD 5 and included a two player online co-op mode, complete with loot sharing and four new levels. At its core, Bloons TD 5 is a casual tower defense game, only instead of towers shooting arrows and creeps running around, it's all about invading balloons and monkeys throwing darts.
If you are a fan of cooperative games (and you should be, you are visiting Co-Optimus), then chances are you have heard about Guardian Heroes HD. Originally released for the Sega Saturn, Guardian Heroes HD was the remixed version of the Treasure classic. The game is a unique and timeless beat em' up that has stood as a solid game to this day. It is a golden standard by which to measure other games in the genre. This has as much to do with the amazing graphics, music, and animations as it has to do with the underlying game mechanics. This is a thinking man's brawler, particularly on hard mode. It features experience and stat point distribution which can come into play in a large way. Best of all, it sports some very fine cooperative play both online and locally.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge has had me singing "Push it to the Limit" to myself for well over a week. Was the game worth it? Find out in our co-op review.

Castle Crashers was a wonderful romp of a brawler. Five years after its debut it is still one of the best downloadable titles on any system. BattleBlock Theater is The Behemoth's take on the classic platforming genre. Find out how they did in our Co-Op Review. Spoiler alert: It's pretty damn good.
The latest entry to the God of War series, God of War: Ascension, has been out for almost a month now; providing players with plenty of opportunity to play against each other in its competitive multiplayer modes, or cooperatively in the "Trial of the Gods" mode. As with other games that have some combination of competitive and cooperative modes, your avatar's levels and progression carries over in both modes. So if you sharpen your blades in the competitive world and then decide co-op is more your pace, you don't have to start all over.

I reminisced about Hanna-Barbera cartoons the other day, looking back on all the kooky stuff they put forth over the years. One that really stood out from the rest was this show called “Wacky Races”, where a dozen unique car racers used various slapstick devices to run each other off the road and win the race. Flash forward to today and I recently was notified of a new co-op racing game called “Pressure” that captured that same sort of wackiness the show brought. German-based, independent studio, Chasing Carrots, aimed to make Pressure a unique, fun 2-player experience due to their passion for co-op gaming.
