A new title update has been launched for Halo: Reach! Who cares (I hear you ask) when Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is out November 15th? Apart from the millions of people still regularly playing the game, co-op fans should also take note. Some of you may remember the co-op controversy at launch, when owners of HDD free 360s could not play the game in co-op. This has finally been fixed in the latest patch, along with a multitude of other tweaks and twiddles designed to draw Reach and Anniversary together.

Take a look at your gaming collection. No, not just the shelf by your TV - the whole collection. Is it neglected? Is it collecting dust? Why do you still have it? The Battlefield Report gets shaken up with some food for thought.
When looking at game design, a few things are necessary in order for co-op to work properly. Most of these things gamers don’t think about on a day to day basis - and it’s not covered in our Co-Op Terminology guide. It’s the core principles for getting players to work together, which Ubisoft designer Patrick Redding disclosed at GDC. He talks about moments where he is very satisfied with during the co-op test phase, and things that every developer (should) think about during co-op development.

The Xbox LIVE Marketplace has plenty of co-opportunities this month. Were more than halfway through March, and there's still a ton of gaming on the horizon.

My sources say, yes, it's called Arcade Four-Play. Fantastic. Don't forget, one of the best co-op titles from 2010, Halo: Reach, is coming to Games on Demand. What are you waiting for? Start converting you hard earned cash into Microsoft Points now.
Halo: Reach came out way back in September of last year. Since then it has seen numerous free updates that have balanced and tweaked the gameplay. Map packs are a different story. These cost money, and the going rate for the Halo franchise has been ten bucks for three maps. The Noble Map Pack DLC came out near the end of last November, and sadly, no co-op-friendly Firefight maps were included. Tomorrow, March 15th, marks the release of the Defiant Map Pack DLC, and this time, a brand-spanking-new Firefight map is part of the deal. We got our hands on the new co-op map called Unearthed and here are our impressions on how it stacks up.
