Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 8.12.2013

Let's do this.

When it rains, it pours, and it's pouring co-op games this week. We have dungeons, dragons, bank robbers, puzzle boxes, helicopter combat, and the big D makes the jump into Skylanders territory. Your wallets are about to be broken. 


Hammerwatch (PC)  This fantasy game is a pixel art throw back to the top-down hack and slash days of old. Four classes, thousands of enemies, one Castle Hammerwatch. 4 player local co-op, 4 player online co-op


Open Me! (VITA) It's an augmented reality puzzle game made possible by the techno-magic of the PS Vita. Manipulate the handheld and use touch controls to open a series of puzzle boxes. Other than unleashing flesh-peeling cenobite sex monsters, what could go wrong?  2 player local co-op

PAYDAY 2 (PS3,PC,360) It's like Heat. Remember the movie, Heat? Do you want to talk about it? No? Okay. --thanks to Jim Gaffigan. This game looks boss. Seriously. Pull off heists with your pals and upgrade your in-game dude's criminally cool skills. Get. That. Money. 4 player online co-op

Thunder Wolves (PSN) This couch co-op copter caper lets one player fly the choppa while another mans the guns. We thought the PC version was hellafun. I winced when I typed that.  2 player local co-op


Charlie Murder (XBLA) This badass beat'em up does almost everything right. How good is it? According to our own Nick Puleo, pretty damn good4 player online co-op, 4 player local co-op, combo co-op


Disney Infinity (360,PS3,Wii,WIIU) The insanely popular Skylanders series is about to get some high level competition. Disney is entering the plastic-toys-as-video-game-characters market. After indulging in two seasons of Skylanders, I think I'll sit this one out. Now if Hasbro throws their hat in the ring... 2 player local co-op, 4 player online co-op
