HyperX Blue Switches come to the tenkeyless version of the Alloy keyboard

HyperX Alloy Origins Core (with Blue Switches) Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Impressions

I’m a big proponent of HyperX’s Alloy mechanical keyboard line. Over almost five years, I’ve reviewed a lot of variants of the Alloy, and I’ve never come across one I haven’t been impressed by. A lot of this is probably because HyperX knows what they’re doing right with the Alloy, and new variants don’t dev...

This Is Not A Drill!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for March, 2021

Did you see that?! Holy Moly! More than 70 (!) new co-op releases across various platforms in March - including some very high profile titles like Monster Hunter Rise, Balan Wonderworld, It Takes Two as well as the start of the Open Beta (PC-only) for Magic: Legends and the long-awaited co-op patch for Watch Dogs: Legion. It's safe to say that there was (and is) something for everyone with their friends and family to enjoy.

The numbers are back and higher than ever.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Revenge Of The Sequel

As is becoming increasingly common in this era of gaming, the Co-Opticrew's weekend plans are largely preoccupied with sequels.  Many companies these days seem content with adopting the "if it ain't broke" mode of thinking, and you know what, it looks like it's paying off for them.  Not that I'm complaining, though.  Good games are good games regardless of how high the number is in their title.

What's more eye-catching than a cardboard rectangle?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Tabletop Stimulator

The Co-Opticrew is reaching into our usual bag of tricks this weekend, with co-op shlooters and co-op sloopers taking up a fair amount of our time.  What's this, though?  It appears a few of our esteemed staff are also diving back into the realm of wooden tokens and translucent card sleeves for a couple days of board game goodness.  We can only wish these adventurous souls (and their wallets) the best of luck.  They'll certainly need it.

For Castleton!

Our Weekend In Gaming: Time Chasers

Once again, the inexorable march of time has ferried us to another weekend, and instead of dwelling on our own mortality, the Co-Opticrew has chosen to distract ourselves with - you guessed it - video games.  All things considered, it's not a bad way to go about spending our time.  Who knows what we'd be up to if not for co-op games?  We could be obsessing over far-fetched conspiracy theories or, even worse, mumble rap.  The mind shudders at the thought.

Another weekend bounty.

Our Weekend In Gaming: #Blessed

We have been blessed with another appearance by everyone's favorite duo: Saturday and Sunday.  In accordance with Co-Opticrew tradition, we offer our plans to the ether in the hope that they shall be fulfilled.  Will they, though?  I suppose that's up to us.  As the old saying goes, "The Weekend helps those who help themselves."

Your next-gen headset

Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Wireless Headset Review

By my count, we are approaching close to 100 headsets evaluated on this site in our 13 years of existence. Needless to say we've seen all makes, models, and varieties - from wired stereo headsets to fully wireless surround sound monsters. I'm at the point now where I know exactly what features I want to hear in a pair of cans for my ears. And let me tell you - the perfect headset still doesn't seem to exist.

Back and better than ever.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Return

We're back with another jaw-dropping edition of (say it with me) Our! Weekend! In! Gaming!  I know I abandoned our poor readers in their time of need, but believe me, it was (probably) worth the wait.  Refreshed and re-energized, the Co-Opticrew is roaring into 2021 with a frankly staggering amount of games they'll be playing over the weekend.  If this doesn't get you pumped up for your own plans, then frankly, you may want to consult a medical professional.

The Database Manager has been busy.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for January, 2021

According to our highly accurate counter we've hit a new milestone in January: There are now 7.600 entries in our database. But while this number is very impressive - there are still some holes here and there. Of course no one can ever be perfect - even your No. 1 site for co-op games. Our Database Manager does however try his best. For example the last two months he went through the entire Nintendo eShop catalogue all the way back to 2011 and added every last co-op games from it we were missing (and many more he found during this research). The results are more than 400 new entries to the Database in January including more obscure franchises like the Super Chinese-Beat-'em-up-series. Don't worry though if you prefer your games to be from this century: January was also packed with quite a few new releases as you can see below.
