about X hours ago from

Can you believe it's been ten years? The Co-Optimus team has raised $19,586.75 since we joined Extra Life back in 2012, and we couldn't have done it without our community. Thank you to everyone who has donated, participated, cheered us on, or spread the word! The generosity of the Co-Optimus community and their network of friends and family is astounding.In case you're wondering what Extra Life is all about, let me explain. Extra Life is a charity started by gamers that benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals all across North America. Visit their site and they'll probably locate a hospital in your area. Within the walls of these hospitals are the best doctors, nurses, and other medical experts performing what my simple brain can only describe as miracles. They're helping kids survive the worst birth defects, cancers, injuries, premature birth, and other ailments. They're not miracles, of course, but it takes a lot of medical science and experts to care for these little ones, and that doesn't come cheap.

Back 4 Blood Stream Recap and Impressions

about X hours ago from

Last night the crew dove into Back 4 Blood a day before its official release. It's the perfect time of year for a game like this and we were immediately reminded what makes these experiences so special. And while on the surface its easy to see Turtle Rock Studios return to the Left 4 Dead formula from many years ago,  Back 4 Blood definitely feels like a modern shooter.I think Mike nails it best in our stream, the gunplay in the game isn't as arcade like as others in this genre, it feels more akin to something like Far Cry. There are real world mechanics and feel at play here combined with a deep customization system like the ability to add attachments and tweaks to make the gun do exactly what you want. Need range? Add a scope. Want a bigger magazine? Add it. Looking for better accuracy, add a different muzzle. All of this is done during an instance of "your run" - basically the rogue like element to the game.

Timemelters Co-Op Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

I love pleasant surprises. Such as it was with Timemelters, a two player co-op tower defense like game for PC in which players are tasked with stopping hordes of evil creatures. But unlike most tower defense style games, it's played from an on the ground perspective and your towers are different defensive spells in order to manage the baddies.Honestly our description of the game doesn't do it justice. Because the real mechanics of the game come into play as you insert the time element. Not only does your defensive strategies have to exist in the here and now, but you can rewind time and have your ghost execute another set of strategies too. Give our recap a watch below, it's a short 20 minute romp, but you can really get a feel for where this game is going. The demo version felt fairly polished so we're excited to see where the full game goes "soon."
