Welcome to Beyond Co-Op, a weekly piece that talks about industry stories that may or may not be related to co-op gaming.
The stories for this week:
- E3 Day Zero
- E3 Day One
- E3 Day Two
- E3 Day Three
- Transformers, Puzzle Quest 2 This Week
E3 Day Zero
Since E3 was this week, I had a number of Beyond Co-Op stories, so I thought I would link them here. Day Zero consisted of press conferences from Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft.
E3 Day One
E3 Day One consisted of press conferences from Nintendo and Sony and and a couple games I saw on G4 television.
E3 Day Two
E3 Day Two consisted of Konami’s press conference, some previews of games and my editorial on whether E3 is needed or not and why.
E3 Day Three
E3 Day Three was made up of previews from Joystiq and some games I saw on G4 television.
Transformers, Puzzle Quest 2 This Week
Transformers: War for Cybertron on multiple systems and, surprisingly, Puzzle Quest 2 on Nintendo DS come out this week. The latter kind of jumped up on me, at some point there will be an XBLA release, although I am not sure of the date. Transformers will be a very interesting game. I’m hoping it will be good and right the franchise for Activision, but we shall see.
