Happy New Year 2023!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for December 2022

It is done. 2022 is over and we wish you a happy new year. 2023 is special to us because Co-Optimus celebrates its 15th Anniversary. On January 28th 2008, the site finally went public. But that's a topic for a different news item. We're instead here to talk about December 2022, a month our very own arcade aficionado, , enjoyed very much thanks to releases like New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja, River City Girls 2, Jitsu Squad, and Bubble Bobble for Nintendo Switch. Otherwise, it was actually a rather quiet month with "only" around 42 new releases. So at least during the holidays we did have a bit of time to work on that dreaded backlog before the madness continues in the new year.

A New Challenger Approaches: Santa Claus

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for November 2022

63 releases across all platforms and 107 new additions to our database - that's the TL;DR for November. Yes, we want to finish writing this news post as quickly as possible in order to continue playing Warhammer 40.000: Darktide. How can you blame us? It's really good, and not just compared to the sea of other Warhammer games releasing each second on Steam (only a slight exaggeration). It also holds its own and is well worth a look.

Available in both standard and Signature editions, these PlayStation 5-specific versions of Shredder's Revenge can be ordered online or bought at retail in the UK and other international markets.

Play Xbox with PlayStation Controllers and More with the Brook Wingman XB 2, Coming Nov. 30

Earlier this year, we reviewed the Brook Wingman XB, an accessory that allows the use of PlayStation, Switch, and other controllers on Xbox consoles. Several months later, Brook is set to follow that release with the Brook Wingman XB2 on November 30. The new Wingman XB2 adds improved controller compatibility and additional turbo modes, which should make it an exciting accessory for Xbox gamers who own controllers for lots of different systems.

Fighting Vampires in the Wild West

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for October 2022

Hey, you! Yes, you over there! You need to stop that! Another month down the drain and we once again didn't have nearly enough time to play even a fraction of all those sweet new releases this month. So either stop publishing new stuff or stop time itself. Doesn't matter as long as the result is us having more chances to play games with our friends. All those survival horror games hitting the Steam Store don't play themselves after all and now we need to switch over to the Christmas events starting up in our favorite titles. So even less time to enjoy that barrage of new games still coming.
