Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 9.12.2011

Okay, it's a new week.  Time to shake off  September 6th's new release hangover.  I trust you've all conquered each of those games as well as acquired 100% of the Achievements and Trophies.  Time to move on.  This week we have some fine downloadable titles, along with a Kinect title from Twisted Pixel, and a JRPG.


Beat Hazard (PSN) It's a twin stick shooter that uses your music library to generate enemies and trippy background environments. You can try the demo on Steam. (2 player online co-op, 2 player local co-op)

The Gunstringer (Xbox 360) This Kinect title will test your puppeteering skills as you seek vengeance against the marionettes that did you wrong.  It's full of the off-beat humor Twisted Pixel is known for.  The demo is live now in the Marketplace.  As an added bonus, it comes with Fruit Ninja Kinect!  (2 player local co-op)

White Knight Chronicles 2 (PS3)  A JRPG that promises all of the JRPG-ness you've come to expect from Level 5: airships, angst, androgyny, armor, and anime. I've watched some footage of WKC2, and while I didn't see any angst, I've sure it's in there, everything else was.  It's a direct sequel to White Knight Chronicles, so I'm sure it will tie up any lose ends from the previous game.  (6 player online co-op)


Radiant Silvergun (XBLA) The classic shooter  will finally be available to the masses.  Well, it's always been available to the masses, now they won't have to drop $175 bucks to play it. (2 player local co-op, 2 player online co-op)

Renegade Ops (XBLA PSN, PC)  This explosive twin stick shooter uses the Just Cause 2 engine to make highly destructible environments.  It offers multiple characters, a dynamic split screen, and lots of explosions. Did I mention that there are explosions? (2 player local co-op, 4 player online co-op)

Here are some less co-op-centric games that are also coming out this week.  We've kindly linked them to Amazon and Google for your purchasing and information gathering pleasure.  If we missed anything, let us know in the comments section!
