First up, we have a trailer for Food Fight, one of the Skylanders that is included in the Skylanders Trap Team starter pack. He's a living artichoke that shoots vegetables out of a gun. Terrifying? Awesome? Terrifyingly awesome? It's your call!

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Getting Co-Op ModeJason Love

If you're not familiar with the Orcs Must Die! series, players engage in a little tower defense/action gameplay as you defend a certain point against waves of orcs. Orcs Must Die! Unchained still has that same underlying principle, but goes a bit further in adding team vs team mechanics with an array of characters from which to choose and some mobs, or creeps, to help each team make their push into enemy territory. While it was initially believed the game would just be PvP only, the recent patch notes make it clear that some form of co-op is to be had.

The game play mode seems to be a mix of typical horde based gameplay combined with some light tower defense elements. As you progress through the waves of enemies a "Mystery Box of Doom" will open with larger enemies and bosses to defeat. According to the press release there 100 waves of destruction to wade through with your Skylanders. Sounds like the perfect mode to take on in co-op with a friend and earn some unlockables.

In our match we take on The Shah who is considered "the most reasonable" AI. We tip the scales in our favor since we're both newcomers and still learning the ropes, so while the match is pretty laid back, it gave us a good opportunity to explain the basic systems at play. Plus it was fun to set up a death trap for the opposing team to try to get through with our archers.

The campaign mission showcases five of the game's characters as well: Montana (big muscles, damage), Thorn (agile, bow), Rath (melee, swords), Miko (knives, healing), and Oscar Mike (soldier). The mission is to find and harvest a giant crystal that crashes down into the area. The video does a good job of showing you each perspective from the different characters so you can get a feel for how they play and some of their abilities. We also get a look at a unique upgrade system that utilizes a DNA strain interface to customize your character.

While that doesn't tell us how many copies were actually sold, if you take an average cost of about $85 a copy (averaging out special editions, etc) - you're sitting at over five million copies sold. Not a bad haul. What other title does Destiny now hold? "Destiny is the Highest-Selling Day One Digital Console Release in History" according to Activision. Of course, that's a fairly new concept.

Perhaps most importantly for co-op gamers was the news of four player co-op ships coming to the game in Arena Commander 2.0. Arena Commander is Star Citizen's online dog fighting module that features both team vs team and co-op bot matches. Once 1.0 hits in October, Chris and the team hope to implement the ability for multiple players to fly a ship together - for instance one player would man the lower guns, another the upper, while others would pilot and manage crucial systems.

With twelve heroes to choose from, each vastly different than the others, there's a lot of replayability here. The matches are quick and fun and the strategy required to defeat each waves really becomes apparent rather quickly.

The game was a simulation in every sense of the word and it allows you to tweak and customize a virtual theme park till your hearts desire. Every aspect down to the prices of an ice cream cone all the way to the design and placement of coasters made the game incredibly addicting. And while the series has had many sequels throughout the years it never quite reached that level of addiction I saw back during my Freshman year.

The team walks you through the evolution of how this came to be, they wanted a game where you were truly free to go anywhere you want on the map and to do it fluidly. There are no artificial limitations to where you can climb, jump, fall, or slide. In fact, the team is so confident their new technology is ground-breaking they are calling it the next evolution of first person perspective gaming.

So what did we discover? It appears the co-op missions, at least early on, are nothing more than races you can do together. You still compete against each other to some degree, earning only the credits from the race for your place - but as long as one player completes the objective both players will get credit for the mission as complete. Up to four racers are supported per mission, and so far the missions are basic races against AI or the clock.

Obviously there's some big improvements that come with the next-gen version of Diablo 3 - better frame rates, improved texture quality, prettier lighting and physics effects - but it's the more subtle changes that we like even more than the fancy window dressing.
