Nick Puleo - Owner

Owner, creator, and mad scientist of Co-Optimus, Nick has spent the last 10 years working on Co-Optimus.

Co-Op gaming has been in his blood since the days of Sega Genesis playing Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. Of course the fond memories of the boardwalk arcade and Raiden II, Aliens vs. Predator, and Ninja Turtles didn't hurt either.

Nick has been covering video games since 2004, including leadership roles at prominent gaming outlets. He has created numerous websites to feed his insatiable appetite for world domination, of which, is coming along nicely.

Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition Co-Op Beta Stream Recap

Last night Jason and I checked out one of the five new co-op missions in Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition. We settled in on the Battle of Hastings which took place in 1066 between the French-Norman army led by William, Duke of Normandy and the English king Harold. Of course like any good historical strife, it's not as cut and dry as a two way battle for the throne.
