XBLA Deal of the Week Includes Some Quality Co-Op Titles

If the sixteen co-op titles coming out this month aren't doing it for you, why not check out a few older games on the cheap? The new Xbox Live Arcade Deal of the Week has five better-than-good co-op offerings for 50 to 60% off their regular price. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, and Warhammer 40k: Kill Team are all on sale. Follow each game's link for co-op details.

This Week in Co-Op: Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 (again)

I have stated many times my love of Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2. It's a great game for both single player and cooperative experiences. Indeed, I've had Geometry Wars RE 2 as my co-op game of the week once before. However, until recently, I've not dumped a large amount of time into the game. I've played it for small bursts, but not really enough to truly appreciate it. Well fortunately I had a dull week and a roommate willing to try some Geometry Wars.

This Week in Co-Op: Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2

Apparently August is going to be the month of casual and arcade games for me. I've played some Lego Star Wars, some Rock Band, and now I'm playing Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2. The game has many of the signature features of good casual/arcade games. Its gameplay is not too complex and you can play it for ten minutes (or less, really) and have a blast. However, like the best casual and arcade games, it still has depth and soul.

Geometry Wars 2: 3D Mode Hack

Xbox 360 Fanboy points out a unique little post in the Bizarre forums.  Someone found a small little hack that allows you to see what Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 would look like if it was fully 3D (which technically it is).   The trick is simple, simply press right bumper and the back button at anytime to enter a 3D mode.  The game pauses though, so you won't be able to actually play, but you can fly around and change the perspective for some neat screenshots.

Geometry Wars 2 Gameplay Videos

In case you haven't heard Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 is hitting the Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday for 800 Microsoft points.   The new game will feature 4 player local co-op for some truly frantic action (see above).  GameVideos has three new videos of the co-op action and if this doesn't give you a seizure or get you excited...well nothing will.  Hit the jump for the videos of Evolved, Deadline and Waves mode all in co-op.

Geometry Wars 2 Gameplay Video

As we previously reported, the upcoming sequel to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved (called Geometry Wars 2, natch) will feature a 4 player co-op mode!  The first title was a blast to play, and the addition of co-op should make the sequel even more enjoyable.  Just hope you don't have a seizure or something!  To tide you over to the game's release on August 6, check out the gameplay trailer after the break.  It's single player, but still worth checking out!
