[E3 2014] - Broin' Out with the Bro Force Developers

A lot of our interviews at E3 were informative and engaging. We chatted with developers, producers, artists and more about games they were extremely passionate about being a part of. Then there was the folks from Free Lives. Not only were these folks passionate about the game they were creating, Broforce, they were fun, relaxed, and ready to rock and roll. We went into that trailer tired from E3, we left it ready to battle for America.

We're finally wrapping up all of our E3 2014 coverage. Locke is putting the finishing touches on the last few video interviews, and all the writing previews are officially done. It was an amazing show for Co-Optimus; one in which we got to see over 25 co-op games. Every year we nominate games that exemplify co-op gameplay, and show the greatest potential for fun for gamers. This year we've got seven games nominated with only one winner.

[E3 2014] - Rainbow Six Siege Video Interview with Andrew Witts

Rainbow Six Siege was a surprise announcement of the show, a reboot of Patriots, Siege was unveiled at E3 2014 but only shown in a 5vs5 multiplayer format. At first we were worried, would the Rainbow Six games we loved turn into some sort of competitive only franchise? Fret not, Locke dug deep in his interview with designer Andrew Witts and got the goods on what we can expect from Rainbow Six Siege when it launches next year.

It's all about the music

[E3 2014] - Hands (and Arms) on with Fantasia: Music Evolved

One of the things I loved most about Fantasia: Music Evolved is that it truly is about the music. From watching trailers and gameplay you may think the concentration is on dancing, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, I'd argue you don't dance at all. A music game that requires Kinect but isn't a dancing game? It's true. And it's pretty fun too.

[E3 2014] - Defense Grid 2 Video Interview with Hidden Path's Jeff Pobst

One of my personal pleasures and surprises of E3 2014 was Defense Grid 2. I got a chance to play some co-op in the game with Hidden Path Entertainment's CEO Jeff Pobst and then chat with him about what it's like to design a co-op tower defense game. We touch on the Kickstarter that launched it all and the importance of having couch co-op play in a game like this.

[E3 2014] - Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes Video Interview

Last year Disney launched their game Infinity to go head to head with Activision's Skylanders. With years of franchises in their pocket and countless new ones like Marvel and Star Wars it's easy to see the battle for the toy based videogame has just begun. At E3 2014 we talked about the newest game in the series, which focuses on Marvel properties like The Avengers and Spider-Man.  It's got a long name, but Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes is coming out shortly.

We chat with Insomniac's CEO

[E3 2014] - Sunset Overdrive Video Interview with Ted Price

One of the great pleasures of E3 for me personally was being able to chat with Insomniac Games' CEO Ted Price about their game Sunset Overdrive. The Xbox One exclusive was shown in a big way at the convention, with advertising in every hotel room and a giant inflatable "Fizzy" that answered questions in the South Hall lobby. The biggest surprise for us was the game's 8 player co-op mode which was on the show floor. We talked with Ted about that and some of the game's inspirations, weapons, and what to expect when it launches this fall.

[E3 2014] - Destiny Video Interview with Jason Sussman

Prior to our hands on time with Destiny at E3 2014 with got to chat with Destiny's Senior Environment Artist, Jason Sussman. We chatted about all things within the game, first and foremost, the game's co-op gameplay. On top of that we learn a bit about the history of the game, just how long it's been in development, and perhaps a few surprising features we haven't realized Destiny has.

[E3 2014] - Sniper Elite 3 Video Interview with Michael How

The Sniper Elite series is one of those underrated co-op games out there. It seems to slip under the radar whenever a new version is released, perhaps, it's fitting given the thematic nature of the games. This year though the 3rd full game in the series, Sniper Elite 3,  is really stepping things up with plenty of new co-op options. Full campaign co-op and survival for two players set in the North African campaign of World War 2. There will be kill cams, oh yes, there will.
