Hands on Impressions with Sonic Lost World

I’m probably one of the few gamers out there that still defend the Sonic the Hedgehog brand to this day, so I was excited to see if both Sega and Nintendo could make this title the next stage for the franchise. Over the last few months, Sonic Lost World has been compared with the Super Mario Galaxy titles over and over again, in that Sonic travels between various planetoids to reach the end goal. But all I was curious to see was: does the game stay true to Sonic as a character?

In Soviet Russia, Company of Heroes plays you

Company of Heroes 2 Co-Op Review

Approaching World War II from a different perspective, Company of Heroes 2 tells the tale of the Soviet Union as they fought to turn the tide against the Wermacht. While the story is suspect, the core gameplay is extremely rewarding. There is a great deal of content present, with a lengthy campaign, a war theatre, and a competitive online community. Virtually everything you do counts towards your overall level, with unlockable rewards being given along the way. Co-op is also quite rewarding.

New trailer and E3 demo available to all

Company of Heroes 2 New Multiplayer Trailer and Campaign Demo for Play

There is no denying that there is a shortage of quality RTS games in the gaming scene. Particularly ones that deal with something other than aliens in space. Company of Heroes is one such series that breaks that tradition, opting for historic tanks and a World War II setting rather than the typical sci-fi fair. The latest from Relic, Company of Heroes 2 is shaping up to be quite a solid game. Fortunately, we have all had the opportunity to play for it a bit, because the game has been in a free open beta. The best part about the beta is that your stats for multiplayer will carry over to the full version of the game.

In Japan, that is.

3D Altered Beast Brings Classic Co-Op Brawling Action to 3DS

Sega's classic sidescrolling brawler Altered Beast is getting a remake for the 3DS eShop. Well, the remake is done and the game is out in Japan, but the rest of the world can still pretend it's "in the works". 3D Altered Beast is an enhanced port of the Genesis version of the game (as opposed to the arcade version) that keeps all the classic elements in place, including werewolf transformations, some odd plot points about Zeus, hordes of winged demons and goat men to punch, and that wonderful "POWER...UP" sound effect.

Timeless brawler classic delivered for the price of a happy meal

Guardian Heroes HD on XBLA for 400 MSP

If you are a fan of cooperative games (and you should be, you are visiting Co-Optimus), then chances are you have heard about Guardian Heroes HD. Originally released for the Sega Saturn, Guardian Heroes HD was the remixed version of the Treasure classic. The game is a unique and timeless beat em' up that has stood as a solid game to this day. It is a golden standard by which to measure other games in the genre. This has as much to do with the amazing graphics, music, and animations as it has to do with the underlying game mechanics. This is a thinking man's brawler, particularly on hard mode. It features experience and stat point distribution which can come into play in a large way. Best of all, it sports some very fine cooperative play both online and locally.
