The Xbox One version of BioWare's open-world action-RPG epic Dragon Age: Inquisition is available for 50% off as part of this week's Deals With Gold lineup, letting Xbox Live Gold subscribers enjoy some solid online co-op for just $29.99.
Last night we streamed a little game called Revelations 2012 on our Twitch.TV channel. If you haven't heard of this game, you're really missing out. The premise is simple - the world is going to end in 2012 - and only a group of helmet-less stormtroopers from the future can save it by slaughtering blood thirsty Mayans and collecting alien head crystal skulls. At least..I think that's the story.
The "Twisted Metal Birthday Bundle" is now available though the PSN. Celebrate the one year anniversary of the Twisted Metal reboot with four stellar vehicular combat games for the low, low price of $39.99. The downloadable anthology includes the original Twisted Metal, Twisted Metal 2, Twisted Metal: Black, and the aforementioned reboot from last year. TM2, TM: Black, and TM (2012) each support two player local co-op.
The Xbox LIVE Marketplace is having a huge sale on EA games, many of which support some form of cooperative play. I know some of you think EA is an all-powerful, nightmarish entity that usually passes time by eating children and kicking puppies, but when the publishing juggernaut is not being evil it happens to put out some pretty cool games.
One week from now, gamers will be able to purchase Sega and Double Fine’s latest title, The Cave, through online stores. It might not be the biggest title this year, but it should pack quite the adventure for co-op players out there.
Looking back at 2012, it was a bit of a downer overall for co-op gamers. Not that we didn't have a lot of great co-op games, but it just seems that the field of truly standout games was a lot thinner than previous years. This year we're doing our awards a little different - awarding just two winners in two categories - Indie and AAA. Let's see who is up for the coveted Golden Fitty award.
Let the great debate begin! It's that time of year. The end of 2012 brings about another round table discussion by the Co-Optimus staff on what our Cooperative Game of the Year should be. You, our beloved readers, have already made your voices heard in our community polls for Co-Op GOTY and Indie Co-Op GOTY.
It's that time of year! That's right, it's panic time! You just realized there are 15 shopping days left until Christmas. You need some cooperative games for friends, family, and significant others. Or maybe you just want to see if any cool co-op games are missing from your own personal wish list. That's what we really use these lists for, right?
A bunch of nice co-op titles are or about to be on sale over on the Xbox Live Marketplace into November. So, for those of you who waited up until now to grab these gems at a good price: your patience is rewarded.
Last weekend, our Extra Life team endured a 24 hour gaming marathon, and raised $2,188.75 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Those donations are going straight to the Children's Hospitals we each chose, to help kids in need. This was our first year organizing a team, and we blew away our goal of $1,000. As someone who has personally spent months visiting my child in the hospital, that makes me very proud. On behalf of the Co-Optimus staff, our Co-Optimus Extra Life team, and parents everywhere, I'd like to thank each of you who donated, participated, or helped spread the word. It means alot to me, and it literally means the world to kids fighting diseases, disabilities, and prematurity.
In the real world the F1 season is coming nicely to the boil, but in the F1 2012 race between platforms, Mac has come last. The game is already out on PC, 360 and PS3, but struggling along at the rear is the poor old Macintosh. Thankfully, they now have the competitive edge as Codemasters have revealed that the Apple powerhouse is going to have its first F1 game in over 10 years.
This past weekend, Co-Optimus and hundreds of other organizations teamed together to generate roughly 2 million dollars to the Children’s Miracle Network through the 2012 Extra Life fundraiser. Though slightly different in the fundraising approach than us, the developers of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will join in this charity season through the new "Halloween Skin Pack" DLC, where all its proceeds will go directly to charity.
