  • Farewell

    It's our final episode of CO-OP, EVAR! Yes, we're sad to see it go, and the Area 5 team has had a fantastic time here at Revision3, but we're going out with a bang! We've got some very special guests for this final episode, a deep look into Alan Wake, watch us stumble and fumble over Bit.Trip Runner as we play it live, and our final iPhone game recommendation goes to . . . drum roll please . . . Enviro-Bear!

  • Just Cause 2

    We're starting off this week's show with a community segment where we'll gladly delve into the announcements you may have seen on Area5.tv concerning this being the the second-to-last episode of CO-OP Live. So, make sure you get those tweets to @COOP_Live ready for the start of the show! What else do we have in store? Just Cause 2 sets a new standard for what it means to have an "open world," the iPhone is still hitting it strong with Tilt to Live, and we show you what games are must-haves on the new iPad!

  • Heavy Rain

    A huge event in gaming for those paying attention, Matt and Ryan are going to talk in-depth about Heavy Rain. Nintendo had a media day last week and we got hands on with a ton of stuff. We take your questions and offer up some previews concerning Nintendo's latest announcements: WarioWare D.I.Y., Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, Art Style: Light Trax, Art Style: Rotozoa, and the create-a-fighter DSiWare title, Photo Dojo. They didn't allow us any video for Super Mario Galaxy 2 or Metroid Other M, but we can chat it up with you and if you ask!

  • CO-OP Live 0303, Sooo Indie!

    We're experimenting today with all-live gameplay. Come on it and chat with us as we play the delightfully delicious The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom and two awesome Independent Game Festival finalists Monaco and Puddle. Ryan was an IGF judge for the festival this year so he's got some unique perspectives to share. Remember, once the show starts, tweet your questions to @COOP_live and we'll have Jason here collating the best. Well, Jason's opinion of what's best anyway!

  • Bioshock and X10 Previews

    We were invited to attend the X10 event last week and were able to get some hands-on time with some of the hottest games slated to come out in 2010 for the 360! HALO: Reach and Fable III had, essentially, no video assets so we're not going to have much to show you on that front. However, they didn't leave us empty handed! Splinter Cell: Conviction, Dead Rising 2, and Game Room were all available to us and we had a great time with them! Matt also got to sit down with Alan Wake, but they won't let us talk about it this week. CURSES! Make sure to tweet to @COOP_live during our X10 discussion to ask us about some of these amazing games. Oh yeah, and some little game called Bioshock 2 came out last week. JayFresh and Matt tell you what they think while Ryan takes your questions.

  • Testing, 1, 2... CO-OP is Live! Mass Effect 2 and Jonathan Mann

    CO-OP comes into its namesake today by involving YOU! We'll tell you when you can join in and all you need is a Twitter account. Simply put @COOP_live anywhere in your tweet and we'll see it! Wait until we ask for it, though, as we don't want your tweets to get lost in the shuffle. We're going to have a musical guest that we think you'll love and right after his first performance is when we're going to go to the first fan segment where you can ask him questions. He'll then play himself off and right after that we're going to do ANOTHER fan segment where you can ask any of the Area 5 crew anything you want. Disagree with our Mass Effect 2 review? Tell us! Want to see more of the set? Want to tell JayFresh how bloody sexy he is and see him blush? Now you can! CO-OP could never have come this far without you and now we need you to make CO-OP Live the best it can be! Join in, talk to us and we'll talk back. <3

  • CO-OP 316 - CO-OP Live, Starting February 9th!

    This is not a joke. CO-OP will be going LIVE starting next Tuesday, February 9th at 7PM Eastern, 4PM Pacific. No editing to cover our mistakes. It's just us sounding as lame as we do "IRL," but with one crucial addition: you. Twitter will be a great way to participate in the discussion. Follow http://twitter.com/coop_live and get in on the act! Live chat may show up as well, but we can't guarantee that just yet.

  • Reflections 2009, Part 2

    It's the second part of our epic, 2009 year-in-review special! We assembled a crew of the finest CO-OP regulars to share what their favorite games of 2009 wound up to be. This isn't a "Game of the Year" rank-a-thon, but rather a recollection of what made 2009 such a freakin' awesome year for gamers!

  • Reflections 2009, Part 1

    2009 was a very good year--for video games. While much of the rest of the world is suffering an "economic downturn," to put it politely, the creators of gaming goodness out there haven't seemed to notice. We gather a bunch of CO-OP regulars for a giant, two-parter round table that delves into what was truly an epic year for the greatest medium ever invented by humankind.

  • Time Capsule

    2009 isn't wrapped up quite yet. There are a few leftovers we felt absolutely essential to take care of. Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes is a huge success and Saboteur offers a bit of newish-ness if you're interested in expanding your open-world-gaming horizons via occupied, WWII France. Also, take a look at Matt and Ryan's Y2K time capsule. What was life like 10 years ago?
