Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 3.5.2012

Are you ready, gamers?  March is absolutely packed with co-op titles.  It seems like there's at least one highly anticipated co-op game launching every week of the month.  It will be interesting to see how many games get swallowed up by the yawning maw of want and need that is Mass Effect 3.


Blades of Time (360, PS3) This $40 title isn't afraid to show a little skin to get noticed.  If an exposed midriff doesn't get your attention, the main character also dual-wields swords and carries a big gun.  2 player online co-op

Journey (PSN)  I know what you're thinking.  You're all like "Hey, Journey doesn't come out until next week!" You're right, if you're a normal person.  PlayStation Plus members can get early access this week, proving once again that they're better than everybody else.   2 player online co-op

Mass Effect 3 (360, PS3, PC)  Did you know Mass Effect 3 has co-op?  Do you care?  Most of you were going to buy this game no matter what Bioware added.  Heck, I bet some of you would plop down $60 bucks for a 20 hour ME movie devoid of gameplay.  Hmm... 4 player online co-op

Unit 13 (Vita) This new game for the PlayStation Vita will attempt to scratch that military shooter itch.  You can't have a game system without a military shooter, right?  2 player online co-op
