In the past couple of years even I have become jaded with collecting points for a total that means nothing, but in January I was pulled back in when I was asked to join a knockout competition with 3 friends on Trueachievements.com.  Each week the eight teams with the lowest Trueachievement (TA) score are knocked out of the tournament.

This Week in Co-Op: A Tale of Two MaraudersTally Callahan

Extract from the log of Excelsia, Marauder of the Frostfang tribe: Day 10 Fah! Our quest continues, as does this damnable cold. Today we set out in search for some key - perhaps an Emberstone key? I don’t remember exactly; it’s hard to remember when I’m out in the field and the rage is upon me. DjinniMan, also of the Frostfang tribe, is still with me. I don’t know what the elders were thinking sending off two marauders on this quest. Maybe they’re hoping one of us will prove our dominance. All I know is that as of yet, neither one of us has the upper hand. We’re both just trying to survive out here. Enough writing for today. If I keep going, I’ll likely get frostbite.

I’m a fan of games with deep stories that are full of meaning and emotion. Character development is key to keeping my attention. However, every once in a while, a game comes along and catches me by surprise....

For those of you who know my gaming habits, I tend to gravitate to the style of retro games and will frequently look to replay oldies I've experienced when I was younger. Richie, for the most part, tends to keep his choices more modern and filled with lots of unique game mechanics. Perfect Dark HD seemed to fit the bill for both of us, mainly because it combines many of these two aspects within it; I got my nostalgia and he got his stealth mechanics. While Perfect Dark is a relatively old game, the XBLA version contained an online, 2-player co-op mode that could easily be set up via Xbox LIVE. Most importantly, however, this game provided a unique experience where we both got something out of playing it together. Instead of just playing a co-op game where either of us simply needed a body to play as the co-op partner, we genuinely enjoyed it because it granted us our own gaming fixes equally.

For this week's This Week in Co-Op, Tally and Eric decide to tackle Left 4 Dead 2's new DLC, entitled Cold Stream. It's been awhile since either of them played L4D, it's a new map, and while Eric's a vet at the game, he's never played it on PC before. How will this all turn out?

“So what do you want to play for our TWICO article, Mike,” I asked. “Well… there’s always Diablo,” he replied. “I think folks have probably had enough of that for now,” I said. “Have you checked out The Secret World,” he then inquired. With that simple question, the characters of Dana “Frumpypants” Scully and John “Doc-Brown” Lovegood were born.

When Eric and I were deciding on a game to play for TWIC we ran through a plethora of titles that would work just fine but outside forces stopped us from finding that perfect title. One of us would not own a game the other chose, or when we did own the game it would be on the wrong platform. For whatever reason; call it luck, destiny, or predetermination, fate would conspire to finally find the game that we were to play together.

Jason     On the heels of his return from E3, I asked Andrew what game he wanted to play for our This Week in Co-Op piece. “I’m feeling something shooty,” he said. “Have you tried that Sniper Elite V2 game yet?” I had not. It was a game that had flown under my radar, but I was willing to give it a shot. The backup plan was Outland, a game that is decidedly not “shooty,” but still fun. So after I got home from work, I downloaded the demo and started playing. Within the first minute of play, I watched my slow motion bullet tear through a guy’s skull and explode out the other side...

Ask any co-op enthusiast about their favorite moments in a co-op game, and you’ll often get two answers. The first will usually be a tale of how teamwork and elite skill helped them defeat a challenge in perfect harmony - the absolute pinnacle of co-op play. This isn’t an article about that.

Chris says: I find it hard to believe that I’ve been with Co-Optimus for almost half a year now. Time sure does fly when you’re writing about things you like. I feel like I’ve grown more as a writer than I ever have before. But other than my participation in staff meetings and the various pizza lunches with boss man, Nick, I don’t really play with these guys as much as I’d like. That’s why I got excited when Paul and I were being paired up for a co-op session, especially since we were going to play a game I have been going gaga over lately: Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.
