The Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 6.18.2012

We're halfway through June! That means it's almost 2013, which is officially the future. Just say it aloud "Twenty thirteen." Chills. Where's my damn jetpack?


LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (360,PS3,Wii,PC) It's a LEGO Batman game. It's also a LEGO Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern game! Play as all your DC favorites in the first open world LEGO adventure. 2 player local co-op 

Brave: The Video Game (360,PS3,Wii) Pixar games have been hit or miss in the past. You can play as Merida or a Will 'O the Wisp.  Uh, dibs on the archer with attitude. You can have the swamp gas. 2 player local co-op

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor (360) Oh, From Software, how will you guys approach co-op this time? It's a mech game that uses the Kinect motion controller. The demo was... finicky. Team up with other players in Vertical Tanks and blast your enemies to pieces.  4 player online co-op

Civilization V: Gods and Kings (PC) Would you look at that? We already posted a handy Co-Op Review on this hefty expansion. That was nice of us. 6 player online co-op, 6 player local co-op


Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 (PC,PS3,360) It's a new version of Magic. I'm going to guess mana will be tapped, creatures will be summoned, and the card artwork will be awesome. 2 player local co-op, 2 player online co-op
