For The King Is Getting Free DLC On November 21st

Shiver me timbers.

For The King's unique blend of JRPGs, strategy games, and roguelikes has intrigued the staff at Co-Optimus to no end. Fortunately for us, there's a new batch of free DLC coming later this month, so all that time spent staring at the game, mouths agape, will hopefully come in handy.

Co-op And Sci-fi Shooting Is All We Know For Now…

Project Nova Gets A Trailer and Gameplay Footage

The next title from CCP Games, currently called Project Nova, has a new teaser trailer that sets up some of the sci-fi elements of this FPS that’s still wrapped up in some mystery, but of more interest to us is the twenty minutes of gameplay (courtesy of IGN) that shows off some of the “tactical co-op PvE” elements that the title touts. The setting appears to be on top of a spaceship and the baddies getting shot appear to be robots with damage numbers that pop out upon bullet contact, with four players working together to capture strategic points and defend them against the A.I. controlled robots.

Our Weekend In Gaming: How Cold Is Too Cold?

The Co-Opticrew is fending off the cold weather the best way we know how - by ignoring it entirely and huddling around a kitchen table or LED screen.  It hasn't been scientifically proven that the body craves cooperative gameplay at lower temperatures, but it hasn't been disproved either.  So, you know, I'm gonna chalk that one up as a universal truth for the time being.

Gotta get back, back to the past.

The Next Warhammer: Vermintide 2 DLC Is Out In December

Fatshark Games' time as developer of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (as well as its predecessor) has mostly been forward-thinking.  Since releasing the game in March of this year, the Stockholm-based studio has sought ways to enhance their first person bashing simulator through the addition of new stages or unique items.  This time, though, their inspiration has come from the distant year of 2015.

We're doing our part!

Our Weekend In Gaming: Casting The Ballot

The results are in, and it turns out the Co-Opticrew is violently opposed to even remotely showing any bias towards a single game, at least based on our weekend plans.  Maybe it's for the best, though, as we'll now have all sorts of fun, unique anecdotes to share on Monday.  If our staff wasn't based all over the world (and if water coolers were still a thing that people used), we'd be standing around them the whole day.

Fortnite's Save the World Co-Op Mode Staying "Pay to Play" for Now

It's been planned for sometime, in fact, Epic Games have said that Fortnite's "Save the World" co-op mode would go free to play to match the success of the Battle Royale mode by the end of 2018. But in the latest blog post from the game's developer, it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer till more folks can get their hands on the co-op play without dropping some hard earned cash.

Our Weekend In Gaming: So Extra

We're officially deep into Extra Life 2018, and you just know the Co-Opticrew is getting in on that action.  Specifically, Eric and the gang will be streaming a plethora of co-op games on Saturday, so if you're into that sort of thing, check them out through the link below.  Between Extra Life and GDQ, it's really encouraging to see that the gaming community can come together and cause some real, no-joke good in the world.
