Slow News Day? Here's a Few Tidbits

Shacknews reports that a demo for the recently released (and reviewed) Army of Two will be available next week.  The demo will be exclusive to XBox Live Marketplace.  If you were waiting for a price drop, or on the fence about the game, well, now you can try before you buy.  You can grab the demo beginning on April 1.

We recently reported about another XBLA release, Mr. Driller Online.  The Japanese page for the game reveals that it, too, will be released next week, on April 2.  Online and offline co-op will be included in the game.  Releases in other regions are unannounced  but likely will be very soon.

And finally, The Exploding Barrel has released an interesting list of the greatest co-op games of all time.  The list is about half classics and half current gen.  Many of the classics, have been released on XBLA or Virtual Console, which is good news for all of us.  Many of the games on the list are obviously worthy, but there are a few on the list that I've never played.  I guess I need to check out 'Toe Jam and Earl'.  What do you think of the list?  Was there anything left out that offends your co-op sensibilities?  Do any of the games on the list make you scratch your head and say "Huh"?  Just what do YOU consider to be the greatest co-op game of all time?
