The Big Exclusives
You and a friend (either locally or online) rise to rule the kingdom of Albion. Learn to use magic, melee weapons, and firearms in combat. Or make a bunch of pies, buy up all the land, and put all your subjects in the poor house. The choice is yours. Co-Optimus Review
Halo: Reach ($49.99 through $149.99)
Bungie's swan song. The game that defined the FPS for consoles gets a send-off with the most co-op friendly title to date. Stomp through the campaign with three friends, or take on the Covenant in Firefight mode. If you have an Xbox 360 you should have this game. Co-Optimus Review
And For the 'Others'
Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition ($59.99)
What more can be said about Borderlands? Not much, really. Buy it. Co-Optimus Review
The sequel to the open world hit offers more of the same. Not really a bad thing. Take your Agent through the city, wipe out crime, destroy the freaks. Co-Optimus Review
