Left 4 Dead 2 Plushies Are Disturbingly Adorable

Are you a Left 4 Dead 2 addict?  Do you scoff at those who don't play in Realism mode, because seeing where your teammates are is for newbs?  Do you handicap yourself by using just the pistol and shove attacks?  Perhaps you even dream of zombie killing at night.  Well, for you hardcore undead re-murderers, Valve has just the thing for you, so you won't be far from your favorite special Infected even when you are tucked snug in your bed.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Co-Op on iOS

Good news, iGamers!  Co-Optimus has recently confirmed that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has co-op on the iPhone and iPad.  We loved this isometric action title, which got a great co-op review.  The iOS versions are identical to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade versions, minus the DLC.  Co-op is available through wi-fi between any of the devices - that means iPhone gamers can play with iPad gamers and vice versa.

TRON's Legacy is Co-Op

Having just gotten out of a 3D showing of TRON Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 film from Disney, one thing left an impression with me.  Sure the colorful visuals, the thumping soundtrack by Daft Punk, and the impressive 3D effects all were excellent; but what really stuck out at me was the reinforcement of co-op throughout the movie.

Unbound Saga Co-Op Review

When skimming some new release arcade titles on XBLA, my interest was immediately piqued by an arcade style beat-em-up with a heavily comic book theme titled Unbound Saga. As a reviewer I couldn’t resist the pull of the story, but did the co-op and gameplay really hold up to expectations?

'Feast on the Fury of Battle' With the Operation Flashpoint: Red River Trailer

Operation Flashpoint: Red River is Codemasters super-realistic modern military shooter.  Designed around 4 player online co-op play, the game takes place in the fictional-sounding country of Tajikistan.  Apparently, the United States Marine Corps. and  the People's Liberation Army of China are in some type of competition to see who is the best at urinating.  There are some insurgents that need killing, as well.  A new trailer sets the tone, and has the uber-bad-ass line: "We Feast on the Fury of Battle."  Hilarity ensues.

Steal Lost Planet 2 for $10

Capcom's flop of a third person shooter, Lost Planet 2, is for sale for only $9.99 at Amazon.com.  Why should you care?  Because the game is awesome, especially in co-op.  LP2 got some low review scores when it came out in May of this year, mainly because of the difficulty level and the necessity of relying on poor AI if you were playing single player.  We gave it a co-op score of 4 out of 5 in our review,  because we know better than those other guys.  Capcom even patched some of the difficulty problems, and you don't need to worry about bad AI if you have some co-op buddies.  You can use this link for the Xbox 360 version, or this link for the PlayStation 3 copy, and help support Co-Optimus.
