For all three of you who thought Warhammer 40k was just too tame.

Dawn Of War II: Retribution Just Got Bloodier Thanks To A Surprise DLC Pack

Halloween may be over, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy watching Space Marines get drenched in blood as though they're heavily armored versions of Carrie White.  Thanks to the new "Ridiculously Bloody Blood Pack", Dawn of War II: Retribution will make every shotgun blast, every Tyranid bite, and every psyker strike that much gorier, and all for the low, low price of $1.99.  Just think, for the price of a cup of coffee, you could watch your digital warriors cover themselves in the inner workings of their friends and comrades.  Touching.

Join Us for Some Dawn of War 2: Retribution - Last Stand Co-Op

Two weeks in a row the crew decided to stream some Dawn of War 2: Retribution, specifically the game's co-op mode call The Last Stand. In the three player co-op mode, each player chooses a hero character and then takes on waves of enemies trying to earn points. Working together and doing well increases a multiplier earning points faster. Once the match ends, you'll earn XP based on performance and unlock items and abilities for that hero.

Hide Your Child's College Fund, Steam Summer Sale 2011 Has Begun

Let's face it, with 18 co-op releases in June you are already broke.  I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you are going to be spending more money on games over the next 10 days.  Why?  Because Steam is having their annual Summer Sale.  These Steam sales are legendary for amazing deals on games.  Come August you'll fire up your Steam client and see dozens of games, their names and origin a hazy memory.  Playtimes in the single digits.  You'll wonder how this happened.

DoW2: Retribution's Last Stand Mode Now Purchasable for a Cool $10

Do you love survival modes in an RTS setting? Or do you really love heroes in RTS games and would rather focus on playing a hero instead of micro-managing units? Or do you love the idea of DoW2: Retribution, but gosh-darnit, you have two other people you want to play with, not just one? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then great news! DoW2: Retribution's the Last Stand Mode, the mode that focuses exclusively on co-op, is now available as a stand-alone game for just $9.99 on Steam. This is the mode where you and two other friends try to outlast waves and waves of enemies, each of you only controlling one hero. As you progress in levels, you receive new equipment for your heroes. A recent update also added new achievements to this mode which also unlock new gear. We're big fans of the Last Stand around here, and Mike and Jason even recently did a This Week in Co-op on the DoW2: Retribution flavor of it.
