The Operation Flashpoint games are pretty hard and sit more towards the simulation side of combat shooters than the arcade thrills of Call of Duty etc.  However, if up to four of you are looking for a challenge then both of games on offer here are worth checking out.  Dragon Rising is the earlier game in the series and we liked it a lot back in 2009.  The newer Red River suffered slightly from increased competition, but was still good fun.

Hide Your Child's College Fund, Steam Summer Sale 2011 Has BegunNick Puleo

Let's face it, with 18 co-op releases in June you are already broke.  I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you are going to be spending more money on games over the next 10 days.  Why?  Because Steam is having their annual Summer Sale.  These Steam sales are legendary for amazing deals on games.  Come August you'll fire up your Steam client and see dozens of games, their names and origin a hazy memory.  Playtimes in the single digits.  You'll wonder how this happened.

There's some new DLC available for Operation Flashpoint: Red River.  Titled "Valley of Death, " this content has eight new Fireteam Engagements.  You'll get an additional two missions for each FE mode, including Combat Sweep, CSAR, Last Stand, and Rolling Thunder.  These are 4 player online co-op scenarios with objectives like neutralizing all enemies, holding a position, or escort duty.  We were a little luke warm on Operation Flashpoint: Red River, giving it a 3.5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review, due in some part to the character SSgt. Knox.  Luckily, the offensive military stereotype doesn't make an appearance in the Fireteam Engagements.  If you have three friends who are good at military shooters, there's a lot of fun to be had here.

Holy Cow!  We missed two weeks of Co-Op Release Alerts.  We're sure that your wallets are absolutely bristling with money, since we haven't been there to tell you which co-op games are available.  Without these weekly notifications you may have missed out on games like Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, Men of War: Vietnam, Operation Flashpoint: Red River, Red Faction: Armageddon, Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, and The Adventures of Shuggy.  Wow.  Looks like a lot of stuff came out while some of us were absorbed with E3.  Luckily, the rest of the Co-Optimus staff was on the ball and delivered awesome co-op reviews for Lantern, Red Faction, and Magic.  We even have an Op Flashpoint cooperative review coming soon!

Didn't this game come out months ago?  It sure did, if you live in Europe.  Operation Flashpoint: Red River will be gracing North America with its presence next week.  This latest video is similar to the others in style.  An uber-tough military-type explains the situation:  American Marines versus the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army, in a real (but made-up-sounding) country called Tajikistan.  It's the kind of video that will have you chanting "USA! USA! USA!" at your computer.  I'm home right now, so I'm only weirding-out a baby and two dogs, and who are they to judge me?  I was thinking of sending a copy of this game to my cousin.  He's currently rooming with a Chinese exchange student...  Nah, I'm just kidding.  Anyway, the video builds appropriate tension while showcasing some beautiful gameplay footage.

While Steam traditionally has had weekend deals on any of the games on its service, Valve seems to have decided that it hasn't sucked enough money out of our wallets.  Starting today the service will offer Daily Deals on its PC download service.  You can always check the Steam front page or follow them on Twitter or Facebook to get the deal as soon as it goes live.

If you're a fan of first person tactical shooters, and you enjoy sniping your enemies from afar, Operation Flashpoint: Red River has got the class for you.  The latest video for the super-realistic military shooter focuses on the Scout Class soldier,  Jose Soto.  You'll be able to reach out and touch your enemy with his long-range rifle using cover and physics.  Sounds sciencey!

Operation Flashpoint: Red River is almost upon us.  Okay, if you're in Europe it's already here.  Nuts to you!  In this latest developer diary the good folks at Codemasters discuss the new command wheel used for giving orders, the graphical details of bombs and getting shot, and a host of other things.  They manage to do all this while sitting in some sort of dilapidated warehouse.  Man, I thought my work space was bad.  The game is supposed to be an incredibly realistic military shooter, which is just a fancy way to say that bullets killify everything real good.

William KirbyAndrew Gaskill

Operation Flashpoint: Red River is coming out next month, and today we've got another trailer for you.  This one profiles Rifleman Sgt. Kirby.  He sounds like he needs a hug.  The hyper-realism the series is known for should remain in tact.  This is one of many OF: RR trailers we've brought you.  It seems like we've got enough footage for a feature film.  If you want to check them all out just look under the "Related Stories" heading.
