Arcade Shooter Circuit Breakers Coming to Xbox One

The six player (local) co-op shooter Circuit Breakers will be making its way from the PC to the Xbox One next year. Initially released on Steam last year, this frantic twin-stick shooter lets players choose from one of four characters before proceeding to blast their way through as many bots as they can. Circuit Breakers is cu...

32 Songs Will be Removed from The Beatles: Rock Band Store

Licensing agreements are a tricky thing. Releasing licensed songs via some medium typically entails setting term limits for how long those songs can be sold. This is an issue that Harmonix first came across three years ago with content for their games, and it's still an issue today. On May 5, 2016, 32 songs from The Beatles: Rock Band will be removed from the store and will not be available for purchase again.

X-Men Arcade Game Vanishes from PSN, Stays on XBLA

Like one of Gob's little tricks ("They're illusions, Michael."), X-Men Arcade has been pulled from PlayStation Network without notice. The wacky thing is that it's still up on Xbox Live Arcade. Licensing issues? Excess of tachyon particles building up at Sony HQ? No official word has been released, so we're free to speculate and assume the worst!

Civilization V: Brave New World Co-Op Review

Civilization should be a staple of any PC gamer's diet. And with recent flavors of the game on console and mobile platforms, perhaps the franchise created by renowned designer Sid Meier should be on every gamer's menu. Civilization V is the latest game in the franchise and previously has received one expansion pack which added core gameplay...

Kinect Party Co-Op Review

Last year's Happy Action Theater wasn't exactly a traditional game, but that's one reason why it succeeded with the Kinec's non-traditional controls. Less than a year after the first installment, Double Fine returns with the more understandably titled Kinect Party. We can safely assume that just about every Kinect owner grabbed it for free oover the holidays, so the question becomes: does Kinect Party provide a better co-op experience and improve on its predecessor's handful of shortcomings?

More Kinect Party Pricing Details Revealed

As we reported last week, Double Fine's Kinect Party (the follow-up to Happy Action Theater) will debut on Xbox Live Arcade this Tuesday. From that day until December 31 it will be free for anyone to own. But how much will it cost to buy if you don't grab it within that time period? After the game switches to a paid model, it will actually be sold in a fairly interesting way. Read on for the details.

Kinect Party, Sequel to Happy Action Theater Free From December 18-31!

Happy Action Theater, Double Fine's collection of Kinect minigames and visualizers for XBLA, is probably the most beloved Kinect XBLA title besides Fruit Ninja Kinect. It really shows off what the Kinect can do and doesn't allow clumsy menus or motion controls to get in the way of the fun. As such, we've been anxiously awaiting the sequel: Kinect Party. Many gamers (particularly parents) would probably have paid 800 MS Points for the second game, but it turns out they won't have to. From December 18-31, Kinect Party will be completely free. Party time!

Techno Robots and Fire Breathing Dragons - It Must be Happy Action Theater 2

Many Co-Optimus readers are just like me.  They bought a Kinect for their 360, but it sits there gathering dust, making you feel guilty.  The only time it gets used in my house is when my nephews come to visit.  One of their favourite games is Happy Action Theater.  They will be giddy with excitement now that Double Fine have announced a sequel containing 17 new mini games over at GiantBomb.

Happy Action Theater to Open its Doors Once Again

Double Fine's second Kinect title, Happy Action Theater, is not a traditional game. Rather it contains 18 minigames or visualizers that play one after another while everyone in your living room jumps around and acts a fool. The lack of structure made reviewing it tough, but we still loved its support for more than two players and general insanity. The game must have sold pretty well too, as Double Fine is already at work on a sequel.

Happy Action Theater Brings Kinect Co-Op Insanity to XBLA February 1st

Xbox Live Arcade games that require Kinect can be hit or miss. For every Fruit Ninja Kinect, there is also a Leedmees. But Happy Action Theater has something going for it that inspires plenty of confidence: it comes from Tim Schaeffer's Double Fine Productions. These guys are known for their creativity, and they've already demonstrated their Kinect expertise with Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.
