Left 4 Dead Meets the Mayans in Revelations 2012

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.

And the golden Fitty goes to...

The 2012 Co-Op Game of the Year Awards

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.

You helped Co-Optimus save lives

Extra Life - Thank You!

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.

Mac Users Race Towards F1 2012 Release

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.

The charity is no trick and the skins are quite the treat.

Grab Rare Halloween Minecraft Skins By Donating to Charity

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.
