Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 10.24.2011

So many games...  so little time.  We don't know what to do with ourselves!  This gaming season's military FPS war begins with Battlefield 3 firing the first rounds tomorrow.  A host of other games of varying genres are joining the fray, each looking for a piece of that substantial holiday pie.  What will you be playing?


Kirby's Return to Dreamland (Wii)  Help Kirby, Waddle Dee, King Dedede, and Meta Knight to make it through Kirby's land of dreams. Dibs on Meta Knight!  4 player local co-op


Battlefield 3 (360,PC,PS3)  Aw yeah, it's on!  Two military shooters enter the Thunderdome this season.  Which game will come out on top, Battlefield 3, or MW3?  We'll find out soon! 2 player online co-op

The Cursed Crusade (360,PS3,PC)  This budget title features plenty of hack and slash action.  And then you turn into a demon, or something.  The demo was brutal. (in a good way) 2 player online co-op, 2 player local co-op

Centipede: Infestation (Wii,3DS ) It looks like Smash TV with a Centipede theme.  Fantastic!  2 player local co-op, (2 player LAN/AdHoc 3DS)

Dance Central 2 (360) We scored this game a 5/5 for our Co-Op Review!  What more do you need to know?  2 player local co-op

PixelJunk SideScroller (PSN)  Did you see the trailer for this yet?  No?  Check it out!  Talk about old school bullet hell! 2 player local co-op

Disney Universe (360,PS3,Wii,PC) It' like LittleBigPlanet exploded all over Disneyland, or vice versa. 4 player local co-op 

House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut (PS3)  HotD: Overkill was one of the best games on the Wii.  This remake is getting the PS3 Move treatment.  It has more levels, more swearing, more weapons, and more boobs. 2 player local co-op


Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone (XBLA, PSN) This is the sequel to the addictive XBLA twin stick shooter Zombie Apocalypse.  I think the plot goes something like:  "Zombies!  They're apocalypsing!  Get'em!"  4 player online co-op, 4 player local co-op
