Enoch Starnes - Editor and Streamer

Depending on who you ask, Enoch Starnes began his hobby in gaming with either Tiger Electronics' Madden Football 95 or Link's Awakening for the Game Boy Pocket. It was soon after this that the tendrils of co-op gaming sank deep into him via extensive sessions of Zombies Ate My Neighbors on the SNES. Since then, he has spent countless hours in co-op gaming with friends both online and local. Be it the Tales series, Civilization, FIFA, or Gauntlet, he has searched constantly for games that allow he and his friends to goof off, work together, and tell each other really dumb jokes. He's immensely proud to be able to channel this passion on Co-Optimus and hopes that his love for the genre will extend to you too.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Marvelous

Based on some early intel, it looks like the Co-Opticrew will be dusting off their capes and spandex for the weekend.  It's been a while since we've felt powerful enough to stop... well, anything that's happening in the world right now, so maybe some time pretending we have superpowers will help.  On the other hand, there's a surprising amount of pirate-themed action going on over the next few days as well, so maybe we're just looking for a way to feel pure, unbridled freedom.  Might there be some social commentary buried deep within our choices?  Probably, but that seems a little above my pay grade.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition Out This Holiday Season

Given the isolated state the world has found itself in, there's been a lot of time to ponder things in 2020.  Should you go back to college and get that degree you've always wanted?  How many loaves of bread can one household eat in two weeks?  And, most importantly, could you beat up all of your partner's exes?

Spelunky 2 Is Out Now On PlayStation 4

Spelunky 2, the long-awaited sequel to Derek Yu's roguelite platformer, Spelunky, has finally arrived.  While the PlayStation 4 version is available now, PC gamers must wait until September 29th to dig in.  It's been quite some time since fans have had a reason to die repeatedly in the series' underground caves, jungles, and temples, so I suspect many hundred of man hours have already been spent on discovering Spelunky 2's strategies and secrets.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Aw Heck

The Co-Opticrew is headed to the land of fire and brimstone this weekend, and not just because of all the unspeakable acts we've committed.  Apparently, there's some gaming to be had in the netherworld, so it's our duty to investigate.  Will it be the land of milk and honey?  Probably not, but I'm sure we'll find a way to make the best of it.  I hear sulfur doesn't smell quite so bad after your twentieth hour of exposure.

Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Is Headed Our Way This Fall

It's been a surprisingly long time since the original Hyrule Warriors first came out on the Wii U.  The Dynasty Warriors-style hack and slasher may not have been groundbreaking, but the amount of fan service found within was more than enough to sustain its fans.  For those of you missing the opportunity it presented to kick absolute jaw-dropping amounts of Moblin butt, fret not, for a new savior has arrived.

Sling Low-Rez Spells In GRAVEN Next Year

Here's a hypothetical situation: you're a disgraced priest living in a psuedo-medieval world where horrid creatures are free to wander around and terrorize innocents.  What would you do?  Would you mope around, maybe write some strongly worded missives, or would you pick up your dang staff and set out to right those obvious wrongs?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Quarantine Party

Most of the Co-Opticrew has an extra long weekend coming up, which would be pretty exciting if there wasn't a global disease on the prowl.  Nevertheless, we're taking the good with the bad and packing our weekends full of gaming (and other non-contact activities).  It doesn't look like things will be changing anytime soon, so the quicker we get used to new ways of having fun, the better.

Check Out A Developer Update On Zombie Army 4: Dead War's Next Two Seasons

We've had a mere seven months to come to grips with the unending Nazi hordes of Zombie Army 4: Dead War.  After working through the core gameplay content and a whole season's worth of extras, I can only imagine that ZA4's playerbase is thoroughly exhausted.  They'll need to find some way to push on, though, as developer Rebellion is proving to be as unrelenting as their undead antagonists.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Link Up

The Co-Opticrew is donning their best knickers and heading to the golf course this weekend to show off their exceptional approach game.  You won't find any bogeys lying around this weekend - it's birdie or bust for us.  Golf may not be the most cooperative activity around, but sometimes, you just need a chance to prove you're better at hitting a ball than your friends.  Don't worry, though, we'll be working together again soon enough (once the trash talk has worn off).
