The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

To co-op, or not to co-op.
Posted on Monday, October 6 2008 @ 01:44:56 Eastern

that's my question, and i find myself not wanting to play games that aren't co-op..

don't get me wrong i enjoy blowing a few too many hours on oblivion or mass effect. but as i get closer to my ambition of scoring a job in game art. i find myself running out of time for gaming.

i tend to take time off my full time job, blow through the game as quickly as i can, and get back to my art. i'm becoming a better 3d artist , but i'm becoming a lousy gamer.

however the games i tend to remember in the fondest light are co-operative titles. games where me and some buddies from live can blast through some AI set to prohibitively tough standards and laugh at each others misfortunes. halo3 campaign is leagues better with 3 mates a bunch of active skulls on legendary. crackdown is hilarious when the two of you start doing cat and mouse games of who can write the other off first.

heres a hint drive the supercar wedge car at the monster truck suv car and get some enormous air when you hit the jump button at the right time.

i'm really looking forward to gears 2 and fable2, and i'm starting to realise it's more because i know i'll get online with my mates again and just have fun.

i'm looking forward to taking on the locusts with a mate. calling out positions, when the actions high and shooting the breeze when the characters need to walk to checkpoint 99807608.3

i'm also looking forward to getting into albion joining a mate and just roughing up some town for ***** and giggles.

co-operative gameplay is just so much more than plain singleplayer, and i'm honestly disappointed in any x360 title which doesn't feature it. the way things look now i think fallout 3 may be the last single player only game i play for quite some time. most likely until mass effect ships or some deus ex game rolls around.
