The votes are tallied, the results are in. Uncharted 2 has become E3 2009's game of the show. If the response to our beta contest is any indication, this game is going to be insanely popular on the PlayStation 3 when its released later this year.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived four characters who craved fame. You see, they used to be the talk of the kingdom – boys and girls around the entire world loved them, and their names were recognizable wherever one would go. Things change, new stories get told, and beloved old storytime characters get lost in the shuffle. You ever stop to think that maybe those characters don’t want to fade away? That maybe they’ll do anything to get back in the limelight of their former glory? In Playlogic and Game Factory’s Fairytale Fights, this is exactly the case – and things get bloody. Very bloody.
Sometimes the words "digitally remastered" is like music to our ears, especially in the case of our Nintendo 64 classics! This time, we've got the original Perfect Dark on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, thanks to Rare and Microsofts team up. Perfect Dark has an updated, smoothed out frame rate, as well as being rendered in high definition. Joanna Dark would be proud, as long as it's not all just another one of those galactic conspiricies.
Brink, one of the few pleasant surprises at E3 this year. One that has a handful of great features, including Co-op, beautifully stylized visuals, a terrain defeating "SMART" system, and loads of others. With it's presentation, Lead Producer Paul Wedgewood gave a nice tour of The Arc.
The stories for this week:
With summer blockbuster movies, for better or worse, come the movie tie-in games. In the case of G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, we're happy to see Co-op, but very curious to know exactly how the game itself works. Kotaku got the chance to play the game at E3 using co-op, and we have their impression to share.
An instant fan favorite, the Dead Space video game brand has made appearances in comic books, movies, and finally a second game. This game is not anything like the original, while keeping the true to the original idea. Dead Space: Extraction is an on-rails shooter title exclusive to the Wii with our favorite feature, Co-op. We've seen a bit on this game, getting closer to release we're finally hearing some hands on experiences with it which we would love to share!
Last month we showed off 'Splosion Man, but with limited gameplay information at the time. Now, the developers sent out a video with commentary on the demo of the game at E3, showing us what to expect with 'Splosion Man's 4 player co-op through over 100 levels in the game. Buckle your seat belts for this one, it's a pretty wild ride!
Start those engines, it's time to take your Xbox Avatar for a Joy Ride! Joy Ride, the fully customizable Xbox Community racing game is ready to blow your mind. You are your Avatar, and you get to customize your vehicle to ride around wacky tracks and do wild tricks. We should probably also mention you can play with your friends, Co-op style. These Avatars just look like they're having too much fun, so how about you watch the trailer and tell us how much fun you'd have racing as your Avatar self with your Avatar buddies.
Since breaking the news about The Grinder, we've been very interested to learn just a little bit more about the Wii's 4 player first person horror shooter, . Kotaku came to the rescue with many details straight from the developers, and some "visual hands-on" time with the game. We already mentioned that the developers, High Voltage Software worked on 4 player horror co-op with Hunter: The Reckoning. But, what does that mean for the Wii specifically?
PSP Go announcement aside, the PSP is really getting some love this year! We're expecting to play a lot of great games before summer 2010, and a good chunk of them feature co-op, both via ad hoc (local) and infrastructure (wi-fi internet).
