Two imposing things; royalty and dragons. Now imagine how imposing the King of the Dragons would be? Soon you will no longer have to imagine, as all the blue blooded mythical reptiles you can waggle a sword at are coming your way on August 6th, in the form of Dragon's Crown.
Wiggle it; I want to see you wiggle it! Not that, put it away immediately. What I want to see wiggle is the crazy worms of The Worms Revolution Collection coming to the 360 on May 3rd in the UK. The pack will not only contain Worms Revolution and Worms 2: Armageddon, but also all the DLC currently available for both games. This retail pack is only planned for the UK at the moment and is priced at £24.99. Co-Optimus will inform all if/when the pack is planned for release in other territories.
We haven't heard much about Guacamelee! since we saw it last fall at PAX Prime. The metroidvania style game where you take control of mutli-dimensional hopping luchadors and do what luchadors do - beat things up - is coming out next month on April 9th.
There be much talk of a new generation coming, of super consoles that will track the thoughts of your brain and plug you directly into the Matrix, but before that, we have 2013 to contend with. One current generation game that hopes to take your fancy is Fuse, a 4 player co-op shooter that now has the official release date of May 28th 2013.
Defiance is being billed as a "transmedia" experience, putting players in a video game world that shares experiences with a TV show of the same name. We're promised that events in either will affect the other, which if pulled off- would do something we've never really seen before.
It's hard to believe we made it to 2013 unscathed, but here we go barreling towards a new generation of consoles. Luckily your Xbox 360, PlayStation and PC won't be collecting dust as the first half of the year is just JAM PACKED with co-op games. Electronic Arts comes out with the crown releasing four major co-op games in the span of 6 weeks. Some long awaited co-op games also hit and the PC is filled with some smaller titles sure to satisfy their audiences. Let's take a look at what 2013 has to offer for co-op gamers.
I look outside my window and there is a blanket of snow, but already I am thinking of spring. That's because Nintendo Wii U owners are going to have a few co-op games to look forward to including Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on March 19th, Rayman Legends on February 26th and LEGO City: Undercover on March 18th. Check out after Read More for the spring release schedule for Wii U and 3DS.
Imagine a game that is like the fantastic Super Contra, but seen through the eyes of an animal tripping on LSD. This is about halfway to the realisation that is Serious Sam: Double D XXL. This XBLA exclusive 2 player local co-op title (it was out on PC without co-op) is coming to burn your earballs on February 20th. Don't believe me that the game looks insane? Better check out the new trailer for yourself.
Painkiller Hell & Damnation was released last year on the PC, rebooting a franchise that old school shooter fans had fond memories of. While it wasn't the greatest shooter we played, the two player co-op gave it some legs and added to the chaos that was set before you. Now console gamers are going to get to try their hands with weapons like the stake gun as hundreds of enemies attempt to bring you down in this horror-esque setting.
The upcoming two player co-op Star Trek game has gotten an official release date. The game is scheduled to be released on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on April 23rd, 2013. This should coincide nicely with the upcoming Star Trek movie, Star Trek Into the Darkness which opens May 17th in theaters.
While the initial release date announcement for Guardians of Middle-Earth illicited some confusion, with only a PlayStation Network and retail date being announced, we've now gotten confirmation of the Xbox Live Arcade release date. The game will be out on December 5th, the day after the PlayStation Network release and will be priced at $14.99. It'll launch with two maps and 20 guardians to choose from.
Ninja Gaiden 3 for the 360 and PS3 was... a bit of a let down - both from a single-player and cooperative perspective. There is some hope for improvement in the upcoming Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for the Wii U, which seems to offer some improvements and additions over the original. One of the biggest additions is pictured above: Ayane as a playable character in both single-player campaign and the online co-op mode. A new list of features for the game has been revealed along with a release date - November 18, 2012, the Wii U's launch date.
Dead Island Riptide is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on April 23rd, 2013. The co-op zombie Action/RPG is said to bring new gameplay mechanics, new locales, more zombie types, and of course, a better co-op experience. The original game was a definite favorite around the Co-Optimus HQ, scoring an Editor's Choice Award in our review. But can the new one live up to its predecessor? We went eyes on with the game at PAX 2012 and saw some of the goodness.
Do you know what really grinds my gears? Games that are released soon, but don't have an official release date! How am I meant to know if I can preorder the game, or whether it has slipped? Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse was one such game until today. The Griffin family et al. will be available on November 20th in the US and November 23rd in the EU.
Pid was announced way back in 2011, but it didn't appear on many players' radars (including my own) until E3. After seeing the game in action and speaking to the developers at Might & Delight (many of whom worked on Bionic Commando Rearmed), it quickly became clear that Pid is the 2.5D platformer to watch this year. Lovely BCR-esque graphics, unique gameplay mechanics (you throw beams of light that thrust your character through the air), challenging old-school design, and 2-player local co-op could all help make this game a new classic. We'll find out on Halloween, when Pid launches on both XBLA and Steam. PSN users will have to wait a bit longer, as that version doesn't have a release date yet - a reverse Retro City Rampage situation.
