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

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.

New Video for Operation Flashpoint: Red River DLC

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.

Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 6.20.2011

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!

Unsheathe Your Sabers for a New Operation Flashpoint: Red River Video

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.

Video for Operation Flashpoint: Red River Profiles the Sniper Class

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!
