Speaking of Free Songs... for Rock Band 2

It's officially "Free Day" here at Co-Optimus, it seems.  Hot on the heels of the announcement of Castle Crashers and Diablo 3 tunes being available free comes similar news for Rock Band 2 fans.  A robust twenty songs will be offered as DLC to say "thank you" to those who have purchased Rock Band 2.  The cost will be quite reasonable: $0, which, when converted to MS points, is around -20 or so.  No word yet on when the pack is coming, nor what tunes will be in the pack.  However, I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict a couple things.  First, the thank you DLC will be made available the week Guitar Hero: World Tour is released.  Second, there will be at least one song in this pack that's also in GH:WT.  (Psst: Harmonix, if you're listening, "Hotel California.")  Then again, maybe it's not just a brilliant piece of counter-marketing.

Finding Co-Op Gamers Using Co-Optimus

One of the truly great things about the advent of online networks like Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network is the ability to play cooperatively not only with your wife or son in the same room, but with your brother or sister across the country.  Sometimes though your co-op partner might not always be available, this is where can help!

Mercs 2 Stunts Video Puts Evil Knievel to Shame

It's no secret that we really like Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.  We've been playing the co-op mode, enjoying blowing things up like it's going out of style.  Dropping a bunker buster on a building (or a teammate) never gets old.  And despite the fact that there's still tons of game to play, the folks at Pandemic have put together a "stunts" video that shows off some other things you can attempt in the game.  A lot of the really cool stunts they show off require co-op play to complete (like above) - and I gotta say, I'm pretty pumped now after watching the video.

Darker, Emo "Diablo 3" Video Now Available

Sometimes, I love the internet, especially when it shows that real life is so much stranger than fiction.  You may recall all the hullabaloo over the art direction in Diablo 3, particularly the brighter colors and even (the horror!) rainbows.  It appears some fans like their Diablo dark and dingy, thank you very much.  We poked fun at this phenomenon here, and the art director of Diablo 3 responded to some fan altered photoshops here.  Now, the madness has been taken to the next logical level.

Resistance 2 is "just about finished"

Resistance 2 is quite the popular game.  We've covered it for a while, and it is one of our most anticipated co-op titles coming out this year. So, we feel it is our duty to let the Resistance fans out there know about important news about Resistance 2, which is supposed to come out on November 2nd. Well, good news Resistance 2 fans: Resistance 2 is close to being finished. Gamespot has a rather good interview with Insomniac's Ted Price, which in addition to discussing the release date, actually has some good information regarding co-op.

Rock Band 2 Drum Kit Problems and Decibel Test

News from a few sources this morning talk about crosshit problems with the new Rock Band 2 Wireless Drum Kit that causes a hit on one drum to also register on the drum by it or for a red/blue hit at the same time to not register correctly.  This of course ruins your score and multiplier amounts during the game.  Also, there is a decibel test link that puts the Rock Band 1 drums up against the Rock Band 2 ones.  A bunch of information after the break.

New Left 4 Dead Screens Show Zombies have Good Dentists

If there's one thing you can take away from the new Left 4 Dead screens posted over at internet gaming forum NeoGaf, it's that Zombies have impeccable tooth care.  In the screens the gaping mouths of the undead attempt to eat our four protagonists with a perfect set of pearly whites.  There are over 20 new screen shots posted of Valve's co-op zombie shooter, many of areas we haven't seen before including a cornfield, a warehouse, and woods.
