Delawere: AssCreed III’s Co-op Wolf Pack

There are no lycanthropes in AssCreed III but I might manage a smile if AssCreed IV, which will probably be the fifteenth game in the series, had all manner of shapeshifters and undead running around in its industrial British setting. The American Wolf Pack aren't a band of teenwolves though, or indeed a group of increasingly unpleasant men with sore heads, but rather the teams…

Dino Might: Orion Gets A Release Date, Trailer

Co-operative, open-world sci-fi dinosaur hunting game Orion: Dino Beatdown is strapping into its jetpacks for an April the 20th release date. After watching the trailer below I just hopped onto Google Calendar and made sure I had nothing planned for that day - just some lump thing in my brain needed removal on that day. I soon got rid of that. What smells of burning,…

Prepare For A Stolen Weekend: Heist Is Free On Steam

Ooh, I'm in PSA mode: bank-robbing FPS PayDay:The Heist is free on Steam this weekend, and 50% off if you choose to buy it. Dan Gril loved it, and I concur that it's an excellent mash-up of gaming and film influences: everything from the opening sequence of The Dark Knight to Heat is mined and tossed into a Left 4 Deadish co-op run and gun.…

Synchronised Spinning: Co-Op

This may be one to bookmark for later, particularly if you're at work. It's a game that requires two people to play on one keyboard, so unless you've had some severe budget cuts recently, no one's going to believe that you and Frank Pelvis from Dynamic Solutions are working on different projects on the same PC. They'll probably notice the cardboard cut-out styled space aliens…

Ooh, A Game Where You Shoot Many Robots

Shoot Many Robots has a directness I can appreciate. When I eventually make a game, I'll call it “Craig Make Gun Bangs”: it will have no story apart from a bit that says “he puts a bullet in his gun” in Comic Sans, and then a few seconds later “bang” spelled out in bullet holes. I reckon Ubisoft will pick it up like they have…

Chaotic Co-Op: Space Marine

Space Marine's recently added co-op horde mode already has additional content on the way. Latin-Dalek-impersonating Exterminatus mode originally added two scenarios for free, but THQ are preparing to release another chunk of content called Chaos Unleashed. Keeping Chaos on a leash is like keeping a cat on a leash so this is a sensible move but what does it add to the game? For the…

Overbooked: No More Room In Hell Imminent

Say, do you remember No More Room In Hell? It was one of the first zombie source mods announced after Half Life 2's release, way back in 2004. Cancelled twice, it still shambles on. Tomorrow Edit: actually, 31st October - finally sees the release of the re-imagined original concept. In development for three years, this new version is going to be an 8 player co-op…

Hands On – Mass Effect 3: Galaxy At War

I was recently able to sit down for a game of Mass Effect 3’s four-player co-op mode, Galaxy At War. So, what is it, exactly? What does it add to the game? And is it going to distract you from the single player? I think I've answered that all below, along with four brand new screenshots you can click on to enlarge.

Sheparding: Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Detailed

Mako Races! Krogan mud wrestling! Co-op mining! Garrus threesome co-op! None of which is going to be in Mass Effect 3's multiplayer. Give it up BioWare, Shepard on Shepard action is what we want to see, none of this "Success in multi-player will have a direct impact on the outcome of the single player campaign" tomfoolery. But yes, that's the headline. I've just got DeviantArt…

A More Human Race: F1 2011 Co-Op Video

Codemasters have already talked about their multiplayer focus for F1 2011. Cynics might think that’s because people were upset about the AI last time out so they’re hoping we'll replace it all with real people. Imagine that. Your friends may be part of a nefarious plan to improve a game. This new video is all about the co-op championship mode, which will allow you and…

Friendly: Battlefield 3 Reveals Co-Op Mode

The headline says it all, really. The single-player game of Battlefield 3, which hasn't had much attention so far, will be playable with a chum. The demonstration was shown on PS3, meaning it looked nowhere near as good as the trailer that followed, with the two developers pretending to not know what they were doing (and to be playing). They totally rescued a hostage! They…

The Joy Of Co-Op

This article was published last year in PC Gamer UK. It's my ode to co-op gaming, and it features quotes from Epic's Clifford Bleszinski and the excellent Harvey 'Witchboy' Smith. (Shame about that Blacksite game, eh?) I've revised it slightly for 2008. It's our favourite abbreviation: co-op. We're not simply talking about your basic multiplayer here, and nor are singing odes to teamplay in Counter-Strike…

The Joy Of Co-Op

Being a bandwagon-examining, trend-dissecting, zeitgeist-exorcising journalist of the gaming bent, it was only a matter of time before I dragged together some kind of verbal flotsam to examine the phenomenon of co-op gaming a little more closely. And so I did, in the form of this highly commended PC Gamer feature article. It contains literary treasure such as this: The lesson for Smith's Midway team…

PCG: Co-op? Sling your hook.

When I was last in the Gamer office, they caught me in a - Dwarf Fortress Mode on - fey mood. Guiding me towards a keyboard, it ended in another rant where I continue the last seven-days theme of asking the entire internet outside, as I think they spilt my pint. It's about how the current wave of co-op games isn't exactly the unvarnished joy…

Kane & Lynch Footage

I've not been paying a great deal of attention to IO Interactive's two-man shooter, Kane & Lynch, but there's every reason to think this might actually be pretty interesting. Hitman: Blood Money ate a load of my spare time this year, so I'm eager to see what IO can manage to come up with next. I'm also keen to see how this new fad for…

Obscuratism

The hats weren't actually the first RPS-mail. I returned from my trip to Relic and Gas Powered Games to find a parcel addressed to Rock Paper Shotgun from Koch Media. Inside it was a copy of Obscure II, which I thought appropriate as I'd never heard of it. The developers had fallen for that basic mistake of giving the game a name which can easily…
