Rainbow Six: Siege Co-Op Review

Rainbow Six has been synonymous with co-op since its inception. A game designed around close quarters tactical combat, players are put in the shoes of a team (or teams) or Rainbow Six members to fight terrorism around the world. Over the years the series has evolved from its roots on the PC which featured a more strategic approach, while the later games set in Las Vegas focused more on action. In all of these games the common thread was teamwork to take down terrorists. The reward was in the execution.

Wii U Finally Gets its Own Version of Minecraft

With all the Xbox and PlayStation and even Pocket editions of Minecraft floating out in the world, one system is conspicuously absent: Nintendo Wii U. You'd think the most family friendly console would be a haven for a game like Minecraft, but so far the system has been voxel-less. All that changes December 17th.Microsoft is finally pushing Minecraft: Wii U Edition out the door, and it'll have a bunch of free skin packs in tow when it releases. More are promised in the future, which makes me giddy thinking about a Mario skin pack. C'mon, you know it'll happen. There's no official word on gamepad integration, but it's pretty easy to picture an inventory living on the small screen while you run around hitting trees on the large one. Even without taking advantage of the system's exclusive features, having Minecraft on a Nintendo console is a pretty exciting idea.Skin packs included with the purchase of Minecraft: Wii U Edition:

We Shoot Dinosaurs in the Early Access Version of Guardians of Orion

about X hours ago from

Last night the Co-Opticrew took down some big game. Facing overwhelming numbers of prehistoric creatures on a futuristic world, we went all Jurassic Park and checked out Guardians of Orion, the new twin stick shooter from Trek Industries. The game has just hit early access on Steam, but it's already got a pretty solid base in place and extremely playable. Players can jump into the shoes of three distinct characters - Assault, Support, and Scout as they protect a harvester on remote alien planets. The game runs on the Unreal Engine 4 so it looks absolutely gorgeous. But the graphics aren't the only standout as Guardians features a pretty unique soundtrack as well.Here's a video play through of one of the levels in two player co-op - though the game does support up to four players.

Tabletop Co-Op: Ghostbusters The Board Game

For Tabletop Co-Op today, we are taking a look at a board game based on a beloved movie series. In 1984, Ghostbusters was released to theaters, and became one of the biggest comedies of all time. The titular theme song raced to the top of the charts. Blending comedy with light horror elements and great special effects, the film would become a major success, spawning a sequel, two Saturday morning cartoons, and several video game adaptations. So how does Ghostbusters: The Board Game stack up against the rest of the franchise?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Totally Human Edition

Howdy!  The Co-opticrew is pretty scattered this weekend in terms of gaming, but that's nothing new, because we're each individual humans!  We certainly aren't clones grown in a lab by a mad co-op obsessed doctor and then raised in a compound for 14 years with a Double Dragon arcade cabinet as our only form of entertainment.  And we definitely aren't kept in a warehouse outside of Des Moines, Idaho and forced to report on the latest in co-op games with a 1' by 1' window as our only source of natural light.  That would be crazy!Clones.  Ha!You're crazy.

about X hours ago from

Be ye rat exterminators, loot fetishists, or rat... looters, come hither and rejoice!  The first DLC pack for Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, "Sigmar's Blessing", is now available for your consumption.  Not only that, but you don't even have to spend a single one of your hard-earned crowns to access it.  The developers, Fatshark, have stated previously that their post-release plans revolve around alternating packs of free and paid DLC, so it's nice to see that they're trying to start off on the right foot.For a full list of the changes accompanying this DLC, check out its fancy release page.  Here are some highlights:Despite the game's successes on nearly every front, loot acquisition was frustratingly random for those of us who preferred to play as one or two specific heroes.  Like Saint Nicholas himself, Fatshark heard of our grumblings and set out to ensure our lives were filled solely with joy.  Pure, apocalyptic, rat-mutilating joy.
