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: The Fiercest Light

Well, what do you know?  Destiny 2 appears to be back on the Co-Opticrew's weekend menu, and it's all thanks to "Forsaken", the game's latest expansion.  It feels like just yesterday that we collectively emerged from the dark recesses surrounding Destiny 2's original release, so I'm not quite ready to delve back in.  That said, depending on how long Jason, Mike, and Nick spend in there, we may have to form up a search party...

Door Kickers: Action Squad Busts Its Way Out Of Early Access

Door Kickers: Action Squad originally forced its way onto PC back in November of 2017.  Since then, it's puttered around Steam's Early Access program, presumably waiting for someone to figure out the best CQC puns to use in its release announcement.  The good news here is that Action Squad got a full release just a couple days ago.  The bad news is that the release trailer has eschewed all those sweet, juicy puns in favor of actual information on the game's playable characters.

We Have New Info On LEGO DC Super-Villains' Season Pass

Admit it - we all get tired of being the good guy sometimes.  The kindly folks over at LEGO (or, more specifically, Traveller's Tales) recognize this, which is why LEGO DC Super-Villains is heading our way on October 16th.  Hopefully, the game will let you dip a toe into the realms of immorality, but instead of dealing with any real consequences, you'll be faced with more cute-sy, "oh no my plastic arms fell off" outcomes.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Mining Crew

Can you believe another week's done and dusted?  It feels like it was just yesterday that Jason was yelling at the Co-Opticrew to finish our morning serving of porridge and crowd back into the co-op mines.  "Ah well," I remember telling Marc on the way down, "at least we got that extra day to let the cartridge dust work its way out of our lungs."  We shared a somber smile then, knowing the darkness of the mines would soon shroud our faces beyond recognition.  My, how time does seem to slip away...

Shovel Knight Is Coming To Retail Next Year

Shovel Knight, everyone's favorite game about being a knight with a shovel, has been making the digital rounds ever since its initial release in 2014.  While it was originally only available on the PC, 3DS, and Wii U, the game eventually made its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, all the while amassing a number of expansions and some downloadable content.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Peculiar Platoon

My, my!  It looks like an extended weekend is in the Co-Opticrew's immediate future, and you just know we're gonna get a little gaming in to celebrate.  The Fall Deluge hasn't struck in full force yet, so outside of the brand new Bizarre Battalion, we're mostly still working through our backlogs.  That's probably for the best, as things will be getting real hectic around here before too long.

"Shadows Over Bögenhafen" Is Out Now For Warhammer: Vermintide 2

Since its PC release earlier this year, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has received a smattering of free DLC to spice up players' experiences as they worked their way through the main game.  Each one was a welcome addition to the core gameplay, but we had yet to receive a "substantial" batch of new content from developer Fatshark Games.

Take A Sneak Peek At Torchlight Frontier's Gameplay

Oh, now here's something.  The Torchlight series, which first arrived on PC back in 2009, will have a third entry titled Torchlight Frontiers out in 2019.  While the prior game, Torchlight 2, allowed co-op for up to six players (and the original Torchlight was purely a solo experience), it looks like Frontiers will dip into MMO territory.
