Staff Favorite Co-Op Experiences (by System)

We look back at our fondest co-op memories, system by system

At Co-Optimus, we all share at least one thing in common: we love co-op games. Luckily for us, there are a ton of co-op games out there. Our database has over 2800! For folks that are looking for a new co-op game to play, that can be a lot of titles to sift through - so how does one pick? We have our reviews that give our co-op impressions of a game and each year we do our Co-Op Game of the Year Awards, but for this article we’re going to be doing something a little different. This time we’ll be looking at the Staff picks for favorite co-op experiences.

Free to Play Shooter Firefall Launches Today

Our first article for Firefall was written in September of 2010 - almost a full four years ago. At that point the game had already been well into development and we were seeing the fruits of the team's labor. Now the game is ready to finally be called "done," at least terms of being an officially released product. The game launches today on PC and is available on Steam and from the official website.

Farming Simulator 15 Launches in October

Do you feel the unrelenting urge to harvest asparagus? Are you gripped with the desires to plant, and water, corn? Have you ever shot out of bed in the middle of the night, covered in sweat, your palms aching with the carnal desire to extract carrots straight from the earth with your bare hands? Do you feel a strong emotional attachment (either positive or negative!) about Horsch brand farming vehicles?

Brutal DOOM Mod "Modernizes" the Classic Game

The new DOOM was revealed last week at QuakeCON, with an event attendee only demonstration that showcased the new game. While we can't see what was shown, PC Gamer has some impressions of what was on display - and it sounds like the game is returning to the roots of arcade, over the top gore filled gameplay. But despite the fourth DOOM game coming, people are still playing and modding the original; which is still one of the greatest co-op games ever made.

Bayonetta 2 Reveals More Details on Co-Op Mode

It was over a year ago that a two-player mode for Bayonetta 2 was announced. Now, more details about it have finally been revealed a couple of months before the game launches. It's co-op (mostly), but with a bit of a competitive aspect as well. The mode's called "Tag Climax," and players can either select to directly invite a friend, do random matchmaking, or play with a bot.

The Engine that Drives Assassin's Creed Unity

Most gamers just want to pick up a control pad and play a game; knowing what was needed to get the game made is not the highest priority when you are blasting aliens or flying through the air.  However, for a game to exist, it needs to be built on something.  The latest Ubisoft video highlights the new Assassin's Creed Unity engine and how it has enhanced the franchise.
