The new column has a name! It seems totally obvious in hindsight, but what better title could there be for a series dedicated to the casual gamer that happens on Fridays? Congratulations to Co-Optimus reader "roland", who won our "Name the New Co-Op Column" contest. He'll get a brand spanking new copy of casual-friendly title Rock Band 2 for the Xbox 360 and a set of the critically acclaimed Co-Optimus stickers! Read on to find our thoughts on a colorful, family friendly title for the Wii!
It was a bit difficult to pick the first game to cover for Co-Op Casual Friday. When I was writing the review for Mortimer Beckett, I thought perhaps that game would be appropriate. But it's too close to the date of the review, and I know you want new content. I even thought about Lips, which was a huge hit with non-gamers in my family. However, I really wanted to cover something for the Wii , the system that has earned the casual console crown this generation. I decided to save it for later, so for now, the Lips are sealed. (Ba domp BOMP!) I wanted something big, surprising, and still appealing to the kiddies as well. So, I chose one of the finest titles available for the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy.
