Stop me if you've heard this before: Call of Duty DLC that has been available on the Xbox 360 for a month is now available on PS3 and PC. You have to love those timed exclusives. CoD: Black Ops 2's "Uprising" map pack includes four new multiplayer maps and a new co-operative Zombie map.
The Fuse "launch" trailer is now live. The game doesn't come out for like a week and a half so that's... weird. Why do I have the feeling there's going to be another trailer? The video offers a sliver of back story and features the prerequisite cool weapon footage and an abundance of explosions, faceless bad guys, and exploding faceless bad guys. I know, I know, it's still not Overstrike, but it looks like it has potential to be a pretty decent squad-based shooter.
This generation has seen a variety of change occur on the gaming landscape with the introduction of microtransactions, the mass appeal of DLC, the rise of game prices, and the controversial "online pass system." At least one of those things are changing for the time being, with EA announcing it's no longer going to require an online pass for its games.
Mario has had some classic levels throughout his games; some of them great fun, but some of them spooky. I always found the underwater levels the most worrisome and in homage to these, the developer behind Rayman Legends has produced their own. In this latest trailer for the 4/5 player co-op, out August 30th, Rayman and two friends go underwater for some fishy slaughter.
Oh boy, more Borderlands 2 content! Just what I need, another reason to add to the 212 hours I've spent on Pandora - and that's NOT counting the first Borderlands. Okay, Gearbox, let's see if your hellborn, bloodlusting, maniac can tempt me back to the land of Bandits and Bullymongs. It's time to take Kreig the Psycho for a thrill kill joyride.
It is only one day until any Borderlands 2 player willing to drop $9.99/800MSPs will get to meet the new Psycho character, Krieg. He is lean, mean and ultra-keen to cleave you in two. This new video highlights some of the skills that Krieg brings to the band of Vault Hunters - they mostly consist of the ability to run straight at the enemy and take a Bullymong of damage.
If you are more lover, than fighter; or pointy eared, buxom wench, than cleric - perhaps the latest character class for Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is for you? The new trailer introduces us to the Elf class, an intelligent, but slightly weaker option. Use spells and distance weapons to help tackle undead minions in the upcoming 4 player co-op game.
Slowly but surely, things are getting better for the Defiance video game universe. Trion World’s commitment to providing the best possible experience for everyone hasn’t changed since their rocky release of the game, releasing a brand new patch to the public, Title Update 1.014.
Co-Optimus didn't get to check out PAX East this year in full, so we missed the unveiling of Saints Row IV. The game was on display on the show floor with a hands off demo which showcased all of the game's new features. Lucky for us, Deep Silver have released the entirety of the demo in video form and put it on the interwebs - isn't technology grand?
Saints Row IV is looking more and more like it belongs in the Crackdown universe - and that's not a bad thing. We already know the game will gift players with super powers like leaping tall buildings, flying, and the ability to glow, but now we're seeing enemies that look pretty similar to the infected folks of Crackdown 2. The latest trailer for the Saints Row IV is called "Meet the President" and we'll let it speak (as well as wub wub) for itself.
This week there's a whole lotta nothing going on. Monaco might be out on Friday, but I'll believe it when I see it. The Co-Optimus Release Calendar is woefully barren. I even checked on the status of Crimson Dragon and Blood Knights. Nah, I'm kidding. I doubt those games are ever coming out. The only new cooperative experience that will sate our need for digitized human companionship is a demo for Fuse, Insomniac's third person, class-based, super soldier shooter.
Today we have two new trailers from Vanillaware's 2D brawler, Dragon's Crown. The side-scrolling fantasy game features six playable characters, two of which are on display here. The epic will focus on cooperation and replayability.
Rayman Legends was coming out on Wii U, then it disappeared, only to re-announce across several platforms. What is going on and who really cares? I do, if the game contains more levels like the latest trailer. In Mariachi Madness you must complete a level whilst producing sweet music in the style of a Mariachi Band. The trailer shows off 'Eye of the Tiger'.
If you were trying to play Defiance this morning, and I know some of you were, you may have noticed the servers were down. This is a common occurrence with new MMOs. Servers get updated, patches get patched, bans get hammered. So it goes. While we won't cover every single patch and update (Trion has their own forums for that), we will let you know when something impacts the co-op play.
When word came around that Blizzard would be releasing Diablo 3 for the PS3 and PS4, most of us were stunned. It had been a long time since Blizzard has announced anything regarding the console platforms. But they did just that at the Playstation 4 reveal earlier this year. From a game that has garnered polarizing coverage, yet soared in terms of sales, it looks like the console version of Diablo 3 may turn out to be a wonderful cooperative experience. Tally went hands on with Diablo 3 on the PS3 at PAX East, and was rather impressed.
