Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 10.12.2014

We've already posted our review of one of this week's releases, but there's more on the schedule too. Fall is always a busy time of year and this week is no exception.    10.14.2014 Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (PC, 360, PS3) - Perhaps flying under the radar, but a new Borderlands set between the first game and the second of...

F.E.A.R. Online Launching in Time to Scare You This Halloween

When we received some PR that F.E.A.R. was getting the online and free to play treatment, we were somewhat baffled. It didn't seem like a franchise that could fit that model of play, but sure enough, the game is coming from publisher Aeria Games. F.E.A.R. Online will feature a full co-op campaign as well as PvE and PvP modes of play. F.E.A.R. 3 was a damn fine co-op experience, so we're definitely excited.

FEAR for Batman and the Lord of the Rings

Tell Your Friends, All Your Friends, I am the Warner Brothers Humble Bundle

Robin Hood was sort of a superhero of his day, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor, whilst roaming around the forest in a pair of tights.  You could be a little hero yourself by giving some money to the WB Humble Bundle on Steam and getting F.E.A.R. 3The Lord of the Rings: War in the North and a Batman game or two, for as much as you like.

Alien Fear Screens Are Too Pretty to be Scary

It's been sometime since we first heard about Alien Fear, the download FPS from developer City Interactive.  Apparently the game was being shown off at E3 2012, but the Co-Opticrew failed to find it.  Sad too, because the two player co-op game looks really slick.  If the graphic quality in these screenshots are any indication of the quality of the overall product, I think we're in for a pretty solid experience.

Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 6.20.2011

Holy Cow!  We missed two weeks of Co-Op Release Alerts.  We're sure that your wallets are absolutely bristling with money, since we haven't been there to tell you which co-op games are available.  Without these weekly notifications you may have missed out on games like Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, Men of War: Vietnam, Operation Flashpoint: Red River, Red Faction: Armageddon, Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, and The Adventures of Shuggy.  Wow.  Looks like a lot of stuff came out while some of us were absorbed with E3.  Luckily, the rest of the Co-Optimus staff was on the ball and delivered awesome co-op reviews for Lantern, Red Faction, and Magic.  We even have an Op Flashpoint cooperative review coming soon!

New F.E.A.R. 3 Trailer Reminds Us To Bring a Friend

Fear 3's release date is almost upon us.  The latest trailer for the FPS action/horror game kindly suggests that we don't play alone.  I keep on forgetting about this title, and then it comes roaring back with bigger and badder trailers.  This one is bloody as a two-minute steak.  Sounds like Marilyn Manson is adding to the atmosphere, which works for this video (if you're into that sort of thing).  I hope the gameplay is solid because Fear 3 looks like it will be a blast for co-op, whether you're couching it or online.

New Video for Another Co-Op Mode in F.E.A.R. 3

F.E.A.R. 3 has the potential to be a cooperative gaming power house.  We already know that the title supports a two player co-op campaign, both locally via split screen or online.  We've brought you a video of the Left4Dead-like four player online co-op mode, "F**king Run."  We've shown you a video of the competitive/co-op scoring system in action.  Today, we have a new video for yet another co-op mode called "Contractions."  In this mode gamers will be given a series of fill-in-the-blank questions.  You must then choose the correct answer from "your," "you're," "its," and "it's."  Each appropriate response is associated with a face button.  If you get less than 60% of the questions right, the game will track you down through your Xbox Live Gamertag, PSN ID, or Steam ID and somehow remove your ability to comment on internet message boards.  This may be the greatest thing ever invented.
