Inventory management is changing from switching screens to all taking place on the same screen --a huge blessing for me personally -- which allows players to fluidly move items, rather than stopping their gameplay. In addition, the stream where new gameplay was shown off also presented new weapons, armor, items and much more. The video can be found on Pipeworks' YouTube, but you can check it out below as well.

The Geometry Wars Sequels Are Now Backwards CompatibleEnoch Starnes

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.

Out of the four new games that have come to Backwards Compatibility this week, Babo is probably down on the list to get excited by.  However, whilst Street Fighter IV, Luxor 2, Poker Smash may grab the headlines its Madballs that interests the discernible Co-Optimus reader.
