Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 10.17.2011

Happy Monday, folks!  This week we have a very nice selection of PlayStation 3 co-op titles, along with some fine multiplatform offerings.  Stay tuned to Co-Optimus for Co-Op Reviews on all of these upcoming cooperative titles.


Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure (360, PS3, Wii, PC, 3DS)  It's a video game that works with toys, or toys that work with a video game! (2 player local co-op)


Janes's Advanced Strike Fighters (PC, Xbox 360, PS3)  The beloved flight sim franchise has a little more arcade in its getup this time around.  (4 player online co-op)

PAYDAY: The Heist (PSN)  Hey, remember that movie Heat?  Payday is supposed to be like that, except there will be more shooting, less acting, and no Val Kilmer.  (4 player online co-op)

Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One (PS3)  One of the PS3's biggest franchises is dishing out some serious co-op love, supporting everything we like to see in a co-op title.  (4 player local co-op, 4 player online co-op, combo co-op)

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken (PSN)  They're anthropomorphic chickens.  With jet packs.  And machine guns.  (2 player local co-op)

Beat Hazard Ultra (PSN)  Your actual music controls the ebb and flow of the game.  It's magic. (2 player online, 2 player local)

Okabu (PSN)  This cutesy little charmer features some intriguing puzzles.  It's nature vs industry in this environmentally conscious family game.  (2 player local co-op)


Dungeon Defenders (PC, XBLA, PSN) The huge mobile hit finally makes its way to home consoles with more co-op than you can shake a stick at. (4 player online co-op, 4 player local co-op, combo co-op)
