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.

A rollercoaster of an interview for a rollercoaster of a game.

New Interview Sheds More Light On The Upcoming It Takes Two

Josef Fares is back in action with a brand new co-op title.  His latest game development project is It Takes Two, an action/platformer following the journey of two dolls which have come to life.  Not a huge amount is known about the game yet, but if Fares' previous entry, A Way Out, is any indicator, the game will be built from the ground up for a co-op experience.

We're on the hunt for those sweet, sweet discounts.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Sale Squad

The Co-Opticrew is delving into the mire of Steam's Summer Sale and hoping to emerge with as many precious baubles as our wallets will allow.  You'd think year after year of discount-diving experience would make us a bit more savvy with our hard-earned dollars, but that's not quite the case.  However, we have posted a missive from our journey that may help guide any newcomers.  It's definitely worth checking out if you're wanting to pick up a few co-op games over the next week or two.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Flying Blind

The Co-Opticrew is throwing caution to the wind this weekend and playing whatever our sweet, gamer hearts desire.  While we typically advocate for a tightly-scheduled cadence of video game delights, we've decided to add a little variety into the mix.  After all, what's life without some spontaneity?  Who knows - if this weekend goes well, maybe we'll replicate these ideas in other parts of our lives.  Anyone down to hitchhike across the country next month?

Take Down Swarms Of Robots In The Upcoming Uragun

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times:  the robots are coming for us.  Maybe it'll be our jobs, maybe it'll be our freedoms, but one way or another, our robot overlords will make their mark.  In the upcoming top-down shooter, Uragun, the robot uprising isn't just hypothetical, it's reality, and you're tasked with putting humanity back on top.

Probably more like skirmishes, at this point.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Console Wars

Now that Sony and Microsoft have revealed more details about their upcoming consoles, you'd think the Co-Opticrew would be at each other's throats this weekend over who has the better launch lineup.  Not so, it seems.  Maybe ideals and opinions have mellowed over time, or maybe it just doesn't matter as much considering the current state of the world.  Either way, though, we have a pretty peaceful weekend lined up.
