Spelunker HD Co-op Review

Before there was Spelunky, there was a 1980s platformer called Spelunker. The ultra-challenging platformer saw players navigating deadly caves with little chance of survival. That game was remade and expanded as Spelunker HD on PlayStation 3, but it’s not exactly easy (or even possible) to play PS3 games on modern consoles. Hence, ININ and To...

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Co-Op Review

The first Puyo Puyo Tetris cleverly combined two classic falling block puzzle franchises, but it almost stayed in Japan. I wrote an import guide for the Japanese Xbox version! The first game did eventually make it to English markets on some platforms, but not poor Xbox. Thankfully, Sega has seen fit to release Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 in English on ...

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for August, 2021

While gamescom 2021 didn't see nearly as many new co-op game announcements as E3 2021, we still had a good time watching the event unfold - and not just because we are of course eagerly gobbling up every bit of Elden Ring news. August did also hold a very delightful surprise for all of us 30plus old PC Gamers: A remaster of Quake not just with all existing expansions but a new episode from MachineGames on top. Oh and it's available for consoles as well with full 4-player split-screen support and online multiplayer cross-play on all systems! More than enough reasons for you and your friend to go and kick some furry Shambler butt...If nostalgia is not your cup of tea however, the releases of August once again offer a co-op opportunity for almost everyone. From colorful kids games like PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls to killing hundreds of Xenomorphs in dark environments in Aliens: Fireteam Elite - there's enough variety to choose from. Meanwhile our database master, down in the dark (he likes to keep the light out) data entry mines added another 160 entries. So, take a look below at what you may have missed.
