This weekend, the Co-Opticrew is tethered to both the past and present of Bungie. While the alluring nostalgia of Halo: Reach will take up some of our time, Destiny 2's siren song has swelled once more with the start of the game's latest season.
On behalf of the Co-Optimus team, I'd like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who participated or donated to Extra Life this year. Thus far we've raised over $13 million total for kids in Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! Our team has contributed $1,740, and there's still time to make an even bigger impact. In fact, today is a perfect day to donate!
It's time to once again to scour the internet and find the best deals on co-op gaming stuff we can locate. This year Amazon feels pretty light on the games themselves, though there's plenty of great finds on hardware. Below are some of our highlights for co-op game deals this black Friday.
The Co-Opticrew has finally broken free of Destiny 2's iron grip... for the most part, anyway. There's still a lingering sense of Stockholm Syndrome, but we're beginning to branch out, breathe the fresh air, and remember that other video games exist. We've got a pretty solid mix of old and new titles planned for the weekend, so good/nostalgic times should be had all around.
While there are no shortage of quality headsets and microphones to use while gaming these days, it can be a daunting task to jump from the "general gamer" to "aspiring streamer"; or in my case to "I have to professionally represent a website and sound somewhat respectable". There are quite a few products on the market ...
Get ready, folks, cause Black Friday is a mere fourteen days away. Just hours after you've successfully (or unsuccessfully) navigated the sea of Turkey Day conversation and avoided all the most dangerous political whirlpools, you'll be thrust directly into the meat grinder also known as Capitalism's Big Day. It's probably best to start preparing now, lest you fall prey to the incessant onslaught of deals.
Halloween has passed and we’re into the days of fall where the weather begins turning a bit cooler. Time to bundle up with some updates to MMOs! In this issue of MMOCO, we have content patches and expansions for The Elder Scrolls Online, Black Desert Online, and Lord of the Rings Online....
Can you think of a better way to spend your Saturday than playing co-op games all day and raising donations to heal sick kids? If not, then ditch whatever you had planned for this Saturday (11/2) and sign up for Extra Life! It's a fun way to do what you love and raise donations for a great cause. All donations to Extra Life go straight to the hospital you choose during registration.
While I’m a big fan in general of HyperX’s gaming headsets, the Cloud MIX is still one of my very favorites. It is by far the most versatile headset I’ve had the opportunity to use, supporting use with a single 3.5mm jack (for mobile devices, certain computers/laptops, and consoles), dual 3.5mm jacks (for computers that support an audio/microphone jack set-up), and Bluetooth connections.
Well, folks, this is the last time you'll hear from the Co-Opticrew before we're in full swing for Halloween. What are we doing to prepare for the oncoming rush of scares and sweets? Well... playing more video games, as it turns out. I'm not certain it'll help things, but at the very least, we'll slip into our diabetic comas with memories of our favorite titles.
Valve has added a new feature to their Steam Client that is a great boon to all us co-op fans out there. Thanks to "Remote Play Together," you can now play couch co-op games with friends online. Best of all, only one person has to actually own the game.
Yours truly is still recovering from a Starbucks-spread illness, so while I'm not asking for sympathy, I would appreciate some tempered expectations for the quality of this week's post. The Co-Opticrew is still enamored with that dadgum haunting going on up at the Moon, but our attention is starting to turn elsewhere.
