There were some very impressive games on display at the Konami booth. Metal Gear Rising: Revengance, the Lords of Shadow sequel, and even the Zone of the Enders HD collection caught my eye. Then there was Silent Hill: Book of Memories for the PlayStation Vita.
Hello Co-Optimus my old friend, I've come to talk to you again. I come bearing bad news that came in a vision, whilst I was sleeping (that or from a Destructoid posting). PS Vita owners expecting Silent Hill: Book of Memories in May will have to have a rethink - it ain't happening. The first clue was when Amazon changed the game's release date from the already slipped date in May to October 31st. Now Konami have confirmed that gamers will have to wait several more months to get their greasy mitts on the 4 player online co-op title.
As we come closer to the end of April, the staff has posted another batch of Beyond Co-Op Reviews in our user blogs section. This month we have a wide variety of titles to look at, from the small and downloadable Wizorb, to the franchise mash up of Street Fighter X Tekken. We also have a review of Army Corps of Hell listed here because we haven't been able to check out the game's co-op mode properly yet. Here's the full list of our reviews this month.
Konami almost managed to hit the triple thread of Silent Hill releases in March, however a couple retailers have spilled the beans on the delayed release date. Both Amazon and Gamefly have Silent Hill: Book of Memories listed as available on May 31.
Silent Hill: Book of Memories may be the black sheep in the series. Silent Hill is known as an intense horror franchise full of disturbing images. Book of Memories will be *gasp* a top down shooter?. I guess that's one way to get co-op into an IP. Check out the gallery to see some of the intriguing locales you'll be running and gunning through. That just doesn't sound right in a Silent Hill game. It looks like we'll be visiting brownish hell, reddish hell, and bluish hell in this adventure. We'll see how it all works out early next year.
E3 2011 kicks off next week in Los Angeles, CA and Co-Optimus will be there all week to bring you the goods on all of the biggest upcoming co-op games and beyond. Nick, Andrew and Kat will be bringing you news, pictures, video, tweets, and audio direct from the show floor all week. To kick things off the Co-Opticrew thought they'd talk a bit about their most anticipated titles of the show.
The Emo Undead don't want to play co-op
It's an abbreviated issue of Beyond Co-Op this month, as several of the staff have found themselves indisposed for one reason or another. Still, we've found time to bring you three solid reviews of titles you don't want to miss. Mass Effect 2, Bayonetta and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories await!
