After a lengthy hiatus, we are back with another video edition of Co-Op Classics. I've been looking forward to featuring this pairing of games for a long time, and as the release of Aliens: Colonial Marines looms, it's finally time. Come celebrate two arcade classics from the golden age of the brawler, all featuring the famous xenomorphs of the Alien movies: Aliens and Alien vs. Predator.
Last time on Co-Op Classics, we brought you two extreme games from 1987. The first was Xybots, an unusual third person shooter taking place in a series of mazelike, isometric view levels. The second, Xenophobe, was just as unusual, with three player co-op allowing each player their own section of the screen for maximum freedom. Today, we've got gameplay videos for these... er, excellent titles.
In this installment of Co-Op Classics, we have two brand new retro videos for your entertainment. Tying in to the theater release The Amazing Spider-Man, we looked back through the old catalog for two co-op 90s brawlers. One was an arcade hit: 1991's Spider-Man the Video Game. The other was available on home consoles in 1995: Spider-Man & Venom Separation Anxiety.
For your viewing pleasure today, we've got a gameplay video for the game we covered most recently for Co-Op Classics: Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa! It absolutely screams "early 90s brawler", from the anthropomorphic protagonists to the run and gun gameplay. It's so great we gave it the super sized treatment and feature it all by itself! (Besides, there's no room left in the article title for any other game!)
We've got two great examples of Co-Op Classics for you once again, in glorious video form. Both of today's games are shoot em ups, so there are plenty of bullets to dodge and fire buttons to mash. The first is one of the most beautifully rendered games, with an unusual setting, that I've ever seen. The second is very different from other genre classics, including a heavy amount of customization. Progear and Rohgah Armor Force are headed your way.
Once more, we take a look back at some co-op gems from the past. Both of today's video offerings are Sega Genesis (or Mega Drive, the international equivalent) games. My own experience with the Genesis was quite limited, so both of these were new to me. Step back into the 16-bit era as we investigate sci-fi brawler Alien Storm and platform/shmup hybrid Wonder Boy 3.
Another month has come and gone, and we're back with a couple Co-Op Classics for your viewing pleasure. Today, we've got a nice contrast for you, with a game from the infancy of the video game era, coupled with a strong entry from the heyday of the brawler. Where else can you find Caddilacs, dinosaurs, and sea wolves, folks? (And what exactly IS a sea wolf anyway?)
The NES is arguably the greatest video game system of all time. Nintendo's first home console saved the video game industry, and most gamers look back on the system fondly. Recently, I sat down and played through some of my favorite NES games with my son, and recorded the experience for lucky Co-Optimus viewers. In my happy memories, I somehow didn't remember the games being quite this way...
We've got two new Co-Op Classics videos for your perusal today. The first is an innovative title from the dawn of co-op video gaming, Rip Off. The second is Desert Assault, a run and gun experience for up to four players from the heyday of the co-op arcade scene of the early 1990s.
