Call of Duty: Ghosts was originally released in 2013 for consoles and included an Xbox One  version at launch. However, the Xbox One also launched in 2013, meaning players who purchased a version for the previous console cycle can now easily transition.

The third entry in the stealth action series was the first title to feature a co-op mode, "Wolf Pack." Much as with the series as a whole, this idea would be iterated upon over the course of the next several games, but the original version is still a pretty fun romp. Team up with three other players to attempt a series of stealthy tasks. The better you fare, the more points, XP, and gear you acquire. It's a lot easier than it sounds, especially once you're a few rounds in and you have to be very careful about not getting spotted by guards.

In fact, today could be that day, if you're a fan of the Geometry Wars sequels.  Both Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved are now available through the Backwards Compatibility program, adding lots and lots of four player local co-op action to the list.

I kid, of course, as Nintendo's latest system has been slowly building a pretty respectable collection.  One thing it's distinctly lacking, though, is modern beat-em-ups, which developer Saber Interactive hopes to remedy with their Shaq-centric title. The game's two player co-op will allow players to clean the streets of ruffians, hoodlums, and scoundrels together.  As you can see in an old gameplay teaser, below, what Shaq lacks in free throw shooting, he makes up for in what's apparently an absurd amount of training in martial arts.

Dead Space 2 was originally released in 2011, with the aforementioned blog post giving the synopsis, "Engineer Isaac Clarke returns for another blood-curdling adventure in the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Space. After waking from a coma on a massive space city known as “The Sprawl”, the lone survivor of a horrific alien infection finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare.

To be honest with you, the setup's not extremely important here.  The world's presumably in trouble, and you and your co-op partner are called upon to save it once again.  By saving it, I of course mean swiveling those joysticks until every onscreen enemy has been reduced to pixelated dust.

Contra is a classic title, but harks back to the vintage days when you could only afford one game every few months, so make what you have hard and timeconsuming.  The two player couch and online co-op title still holds up well today, but is perhaps not as strong as its Super Nintendo sequel Super Contra.

Obviously, the solution is to add Army of Two to the backwards compatibility list, and Microsoft's done just that, with the game being available at this very moment for your co-op third person shooter needs.  As usual, the game is available to download for free if you owned it digitally on Xbox 360, but otherwise, you can pick it up for fifteen bucks.

Included in this sale are multiple titles for the Xbox One including Zombie Army Trilogy, which features co-op, with our review saying, "If you like games that don't require much in the way of progression or time-consuming leveling-up for characters, then this a fine way to kill some time (and zombies) with a group of friends." The review can be read in full here. Also on Xbox One comes WWE 2k17 and Mafia III, both deluxe and standard editions.
