Guess what was just released for LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet Karting and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita? Sony recently rolled out a pack of costumes from Mass Effect (ever heard of it?), which includes skins for Shepard, Liara, Wrex, and Garrus along with a few in-game stickers. Just the sort of thing you needed to remind you that the LBP series still exists!
The majority of us here have played Mass Effect 3, completed it and then replayed it for the new ending. However, none of us have experienced the Wii U Special Edition of the game. The 360 may have had Kinect functionality, but the Wii U has unique Wii U Gamepad functionality. Check out the new trailer to get a taste of what the fancy controller brings to the game.
Mass Effect 3 is getting a large co-op content drop. The "Retaliation" DLC will include a new enemy faction, new Class Kits, "hazard" versions of maps, new weapons and upgrades, and a new multiplayer "Challenge" feature. It's actually one of the more impressive free DLCs I've seen. Yeah, you read that right. It won't cost you a dime.
Mass Effect 3 is an excellent co-op game, you and 3 friends fight wave after wave of enemies. What did you say, a single player game as well? Turns out that attached to the co-op element of Mass Effect 3 was one of the best action RPG games of this generation. Despite being a great game, the ending did not sit well with everyone, so new DLC, due out June 26th, might just be what they wanted.
If the internet were a bucket, it would be a incredibly leaky one. The latest leak comes via Sony Hong Kong who mistakenly revealed details on the upcoming Mass Effect 3 DLC before promptly removing it. However, this being 2012 someone was able to grab the information first. Kotuku inform us that the DLC will involve an expansion in the multiplayer universe and not the single player. Check out Read More for the lowdown.
If my Xbox friends list is anything to go by a lot of Co-Optimus readers are currently playing Mass Effect 3, both in single player and in co-op. The co-op maps may be fun, but I have played them all, shot all the bad guys and juiced up my hero to over Level 40. I want more and this leaked image suggests that I will get what I want.
The CGI trailer has been one of the basic gaming PR tools for years. They may not contain any real game footage, but they sure can increase the heat on a property. Mass Effect 3 has seen plenty of in game trailers and even has a demo that you can try out; but a new CGI trailer full of epic goodness is still needed. Bioware have answered these calls in the new Take Earth Back trailer and it is immense.
First and foremost: there will be no plot spoilers in this post. There. That's out of the way. By now you've probably heard that the Mass Effect 3 demo has dropped. This little glimpse will allow players to experience two story missions from the main game as well as engage in the franchise's first attempt at cooperative play. Nick and I played a few rounds the other day, and we're happy to report that the co-op mode is accessible, addictive, and most of all, fun.
Patience is a virtue. It’s also for greybeards who don't mind waiting whilst the rest of us rock out to some Mass Effect 3 demo footage. The demo is due out on the 15th February for Battlefield 3 online pass owners and the 17th for the rest of us. A YouTube user has provided over 50 minutes of footage of the demo. Beware these videos contain more spoilers than a Pimp My Ride reunion.
On Tuesday, I hit up the train to Midtown to attend EA's Spotlight event. Our own Nick Puleo was originally planning on attending said festivities, but he was sadly down for the count, incapacitated by a nasty cough.
With money currently tighter than a screw after a World's Strongest Man DIY Challenge, a demo is a great way of checking out a game before buying it full price. On the Xbox 360, single player demos can be tried by all (eventually), but multiplayer demos are only accessible to Gold members. No Mass Effect 3 co-op demo for you! That is until Microsoft announced limited Gold access for Silver members who try out the Mass Effect 3 demo.
Today we bring you a new commercial touting the capabilities of the Xbox 360's Kinect motion control peripheral in Mass Effect 3. The Kinect has been a whipping boy for many gamers since it's announcement, and this video is probably not going to change that. At all. As a semi-proud owner of the device, I can definitively say, "It's okay, I guess."
It's a topic/point of debate that gets brought up often here at Co-Optimus: Does co-op make a game better? For a site that's dedicated to co-op gaming, you're surely thinking that the obvious answer would be, "yes, of course it does;" however, that may not always be the case. Bioware, developer of the upcoming Mass Effect 3 - the first game in the series to feature co-op gameplay - seems to agree.
When we first received word at Co-Optimus HQ that the next Mass Effect game would have co-op, we were thirlled. After all, it's a feature we'd been teased with for the second game, and its cancellation/denial left us... well, let's just say yening for such a possibility to become true. Since the confirmation that Mass Effect 3 would, in fact, support co-op play in a separate adventure where each player could choose, and customize, his or her own character, we've been getting some details here and there about what it will and won't do. However, we have yet to see a lot of it in action...
When the massive chunk of plastic that was Skylanders arrived at Co-Optimus Towers, who would have thought the game would have walked away with the maximum 5 out of 5? EA know a good thing when they see it, so they have attached DLC to one of their own range of figurines. However, this is no kid friendly game, but the highly anticipated Mass Effect 3. Buy one of the new range of models and get some randomized DLC for the Mass Effect 3 co-op mode - gotta catch 'em all?
