Resident Evil 5 and Halo Wars bring in Dan "Shoe" Hsu, Patrick Klepek, Anthony Gaellgos and Sterling McGarvey while we at Area 5 try our hand at creating some in-house promos.
The latest attempt to prevent the Zombocalypse is proven successful. GameSpy's Sterling McGarvey traverses Resident Evil 5 entirely in single player while Ryan and Matt, appropriately, instigate their infected extermination co-op style.
The Real Time Strategy genre of gaming usually gets short shrift in the console sector. Some say it's impossible and you shouldn't even try. Halo Wars calls that out for being the dirty, dirty lie that it is and JayFresh brings over Dan "Shoe" Hsu, Patrick Klepek, and Anthony Gallegos for the exposè.
Any new company, of course, must sell itself in order to expand it's brand identity. This was the task set forth for Jason, Rob, and Cesar this week and boy did they...um...deliver?
RESPECT THE GAME.
Produced, written, and directed by Area 5 (named after the final stage of the game Rez), a company formed from the staff formerly responsible for The 1UP Show, CO-OP is lovingly crafted each week to bring the best-of-gaming's-best to their fans.
The CO-OP team is made up of: Cesar Quintero, Matt Chandronait, Jay "JayFresh" Frechette, Ryan O'Donnell, Jason Bertrand and Rob Bowen.
You won't find any review scores or talking heads, here. Inspired by the conversations gamers around the world have every day with their peers, these are real gamers that engage in a dialogue their fans can relate to. Not limited to a standard cast, CO-OP brings in industry insiders and gaming media's most popular players to share in the critique, love, and bashing of this latest and greatest medium to grace humankind.
CO-OP's game coverage is rounded out by narrative bits that often poke fun at and sometimes humiliate the show's creators and friends. A grain of truth, an ounce of hogwash, a ton of fun!
