Another week has come and gone here at Co-Optimus, and that means it's time once again to take a look at all that other non-cooperative gaming news that's circling around the web. There are a couple of stories coming out from Gamescom, which is currently underway in Cologne, Germany, an interesting/convoluted story about a game service that seemed too good to be true, and a blast from the past returns this December.
If you use one of those new fangled "cloud gaming services" - more specifically, if you use OnLive, they've got a great deal going on if you want to play the new Civilization V expansion pack. If you purchased Civilization V: Gods and Kings for the normal price of $30, they'll throw in the base game (which is required) for free.
If you don't know what Onlive is, its a service that allows you to play PC games over the Internet with no downloading, installing or configuration on any platform. Basically the system streams the game to you like a YouTube video. It's a unique concept that many people doubted would work, but so far, everyone seems generally impressed.
