Shank is the Xbox Live Gold Deal of The Week

It's that time of the week again, when the new deal of the week is available for those with an Xbox Live Gold membership.  Shank is the featured game, and the savings is 33% off the normal 1200 points down to 800 points, or ten bucks for the math-challenged.  We reviewed the game earlier this fall, and though it wasn't without its problems, the overall verdict was that Shank is a decent way to pass an afternoon with a buddy.  And until November 22, you can do just that, at a decent discount.

Shank Co-Op Review

Shank is a game about a guy name Shank who shanks a lot of guys. It’s probably the most appropriate title for a game in recent memory. It is a story of revenge, mistaken identity and a whole lot of sticking sharp things into the soft parts of bad guys.

Shank Soundtrack On Facebook, Challenge of Adding Co-op Appreciated

To the community that was watching the development cycle of Shank from a distance, the single player campaign just felt too epic to mess with, but co-op sounded too sweet not to demand. To the developers, the single player campaign is too epic to mess with - so they had to make a few decisions when they decided to upgrade the game to include co-op.

Shank Co-op Trailer is Co-op to the Extreme

At PAX East the glory, visuals, and smooth controls of Shank wow'd us back to the Klei entertainment both to play again, and again, and again - and it was just single player at the time. Now Shank has brought a buddy to play the incredibly impressive platforming adventure game. Shanking, shooting, jumping, and co-op attacking, the co-op campaign looks absolutely phenomenal in the trailer we've got for you.

Shank Adds Co-Op Campaign, Launches this August

We last saw Shank at Pax East in March of this year.  At the time we had no idea the game would contain a co-op mode, in fact, according to the developer Klei Entertainment - they wanted to keep it a secret.  So after coming up with the idea to have a separate co-op campaign (the single player was already designed) - Klei went to work to create a fun experience with levels and bosses designed for two players.  But this isn't just some survival mode, instead it's a full fledged backstory to Shank's single player campaign - complete with cutscenes and more.

[PAX-E] Non-co-op Raskulls and Shank Hands On Awesome

When I wasn't waiting in line for Co-op games with the CoG group or Co-opticrew on the PAX East floor, I was scoping out a few non-co-op games to fill my time. Two of those, which I enjoyed enough to go back for seconds, were Raskulls, and Shank. We got a brief preview of Shank at PAX Prime last year, but no hands-on time for this Shadokat. Raskulls was just a convenient thing to play while the others got busy with a nearby Crackdown 2 booth, which was a pleasant surprise to play
