It Takes Two is an Incredible Game, and I Never Want to Play it Again

Though both my husband and I are lifelong gamers, we’re only a few years into our own “co-op mode” renaissance. Before just a few years ago, the vast majority of our “together” time playing games was spent playing very separate games. With the exception of fighting games, we learned long ago that we weren’t compatible…

Community Post: On Co-op Play and My Lack of It

As a solitary, curmudgeonly gamer with control issues who doesn’t get out much, I don’t have a million and one stories involving co-op play in games. In the early days, my siblings and I used to hand off SNES controllers to play rounds with Mario, which is one form of co-op play, but not the…

Community Post: The Hardest Part

I’ve not had the best of times when it comes to Co-Op games. For me, it comes down to one thing, which in my opinion, is the hardest thing about gaming with other people. Finding the right people for that game. The first Co-op game I can remember playing was Champions of Norrath on the…

Whaddya mean you don’t play games together??

My husband and I have bonded over lots of things during our years together. And early on, we found common ground in video games in that we each liked playing them. We’re both continually interested in games, new and old, and we do our best to stay in the news loop concerning games. But what…
