League of Legends Flirts with Six on Six Action

In a move purists would faint at the mere idea of, League of Legends is putting more M in your MOBA. Starting the 20th of this month, the boundary pushers at Riot are incorporating a new game mode which shatters the conventional five on five experience and bumps the player count up to six participants per team. I know what you're thinking. If they tamper with the tried and true MOBA formula, what other sort of values are they willing to cast aside in the name of "progress"?

ArmA 3 Alpha Video Introduces You to the Series

ArmA 3 has hit alpha phase and is actually available to purchase via Steam right now for $32.99. By doing so you get early access to the game, can contribute feedback to its development, and will get full access to the full release once it's ready. If you aren't familiar with the series, ArmA is all about real tactical combat in a sandbox type environment. We've already seen the potential of the series, with ArmA 2 allowing 100 player co-op missions

Examining Just how co-op is going to work

SimCity Beta Impressions

This past weekend, SimCity held a closed beta test for a select group of individuals to test out some very basic features of the game and give EA's server infrastructure a good ol' workout.  While the beta didn't feature any of the multiplayer functionality, there was plenty of opportunity to see just how cooperative play is going to work when the title is released on PC on March 5th.

PSA: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Currently Has a Co-Op Issue

I received my review copy for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Thanksgiving weekend. I was a little sad when I found out that currently the game only supports TCP/IP co-op, mostly because it meant I couldn't try out the co-op until release (I didn't know anyone else that had an early review copy). November 28th rolled around, which meant I could try the co-op... theoretically. Unfortunately, that was not to be, as my press copy was not the same version as the released copy! This took me a few frustrating days to find out (my own fault) as I attempted many work-arounds that didn't work (how could they have, considering the root problem?)

Miner Wars 2081 Hits Beta, 4 Player Co-Op Video Showcased

Miner Wars 2081 has finally hit its beta phase after extensive alpha and pre-alpha testing from the community.  The game is now being balanced and tweaked, getting ready for release sometime later this year on PC.  Miner Wars 2081 features both single player and co-op gameplay as well as some versus elements in a six degrees of freedom type game - think classic PC game series Descent.  The team has a Greenlight Page up to try to get Miner Wars 2081 onto Valve's Steam service.

Team Fortress 2 Pits Mann vs Machine in New Co-Op Mode

Team Fortress 2 is an incredibly popular game from Valve that has had pretty consistent content updates for the better part of the last 3 years, and I don't just mean the hats.  Now the game is getting what some might consider the biggest update since release - and entire new "faction" of of characters have joined the game.  Except these aren't Reds or Blues, rather these are machines and it's time to team up with your friends against them in a survival mode.
