Halo Wars 2 Co-Op Review

Early on in Halo Wars 2, I kept getting the feeling that I had lived this all before in an almost dream-like way. I played through campaign mission after mission, trying to shake the feeling and find my 'Ah-ha!' moment that would set the game apart, letting me tell my friends and associates of the special moments I wanted to share with...

Tactical Survival Game The Red Solstice Enters Alpha

Mars. That red planet that floats around with stone faces in the sand, secret alien cities beneath the surface, and a curious little rover scooping up bits of soil. Also, Ironward Game's upcoming tactical survival game takes place there! The studio is currently hard at work on The Red Solstice, a co-op game that supports up to eight players who must work together in order to survive the harsh Martian climate.

Indie Strategy Game McDROID Launches with Co-Op Play

New from indie studio Elefantopia, McDROID is a sci-fi arcade game fused with real-time strategy elements that sports both single player and co-op play. Way out in the unexplored edges of space, McDROID's shuttle collides with some debris and crashes on an uncharted planet. The surface is infested with monsters, of course, so McDROID has to fight for survival while gathering materials to repair the ship, heal the planet, and figure out what sort of conspiracy is brewing beneath the surface.

Shogun 2 Receives Massive Update

Earlier this week an enormous patch was applied to the lately installment of the Total War series, Shogun 2. The bulk of the update seems to be fixes, but there's some unit tweaking, DirectX 11 support, and even four new multiplayer maps included as well. We found the game to be a great co-op strategy/RTS game, giving it an impressive 4.5 out of 5. For the full list of patch notes, read on:

APOX on Thee - Survival Mode For All!

Indie strategy game APOX just released a few short weeks ago, boasting impressive 16-player comp-stomp on the co-op side of things along with single-player and competitive multi-player options as well. Now players will have another co-op option for the game as a survival mode was added just last week. Available in both single-player and co-op, players will have to defend their base for a whole 25 minutes as relentless waves of enemies swarm in. Players can enjoy this mode on not one, not two, but SIX new maps. Pretty nice for a free game update.

APOX: When Real-Time Strategy Meets First Person Shooter, Co-Op Happens

Gamers should get a kick out of the post apocalyptic PC title APOX, if for not other reason than the seamless blending of two co-op favorite genres. APOX takes the real-time strategy elements we love like resources, base-building, and strategy (also fast paced battle, duh) and blends those elements with individual unit commands that you might see in a Shooter. Things like using cover, raiding bodies, or getting in and out of vehicles, all blended seamlessly.

Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes Coming to PSN and XBLA with Co-Op!

Capybara Games has recently announced they're planning to port their originally Nintendo DS exclusive SRPG Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes to PSN and XBLA. Capybara are also the folks behind the popular Critter Crunch. M&M: Clash of Heroes was released back in December 2009 and was well-received by critics. I raved about this game to my friends and tried to convince everyone I knew with a DS to purchase it. Starting Summer 2010 I can now spread my fanaticism to people with xbox 360s and PS3s as well. What's the even better news? The PSN and XBLA version will have up to 4-player Co-Op as well as a completely new art style!
