Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 7.15.2013

Wrath of the Licensed Games

The summer keeps going and going and going. This week we have some licensed movie games, Serious Sam gets a collection, and Dynasty Warriors spawns another sequel. In awesome news, I saw Pacific Rim over the weekend. It was better than I anticipated, but not as good as I wanted it to be. I hope it does well enough at the box office to warrant a kick-ass Voltron movie. Dare to dream. 


Dynasty Warriors 8 (PS3,360)  Everything that could have been written about Dynasty Warriors games was written by the fourth sequel, which launched almost eight years ago. Fight hordes of enemies and a lethargic frame rate with a legendary character from Romance of the Three Kingdoms.  2 player online co-op, 2 player local co-op

R.I.P.D.: The Game (PC,PSN,XBLA) This third person shooter looks... interesting? It's the zombie version of M.I.B. starring the Dude from The Big Lebowski  and that pedophile from Waiting.   2 player online co-op

Turbo: Super Stunt Squad (360,PS3,WIIU) This little game is based off of the upcoming Dreamworks film about a snail that races in the Indianapolis 500. The 360, PS3, and Wii U versions feature a co-op mode. Players perform stunts in open arenas similar to a skating game. 2 player local co-op ***The Wii and portable versions of Turbo are racers and do not include co-op 

The following games are available at Amazon beginning tomorrow. I should note that The Serious Sam Collection includes four cooperative titles: Serious Sam HD: The First EncounterSerious Sam HD: The Second EncounterSerious Sam 3: BFE (plus Jewel of the Nile DLC pack), and Serious Sam: Double D XXL. Follow the links for more information.
