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.
Our 2009 retrospective was too big and too long to fit into a single episode, so our crew and friends agreed to hang around for over three hours of filming so that we'd have plenty of time to go into what was such a huge, packed year for gaming.
We've been hugely thankful for all the amazing guests we've had on CO-OP throughout 2009, and we're doubly grateful to have so many of them show up for this show:
- From Bitmob, Dan Hsu.
- Tyler Barber of RebelFM fame and Eat-Sleep-Game.com as well as regular work for GameSpy.
- Kat Bailey, a frequent, favorite guest of ours and a freelancer at large.
- Long-time blogger Tiff Chow.
- Justin Haywald and David Ellis from 1UP.com.
Of course we talked about all of our favorites and, hopefully, some of yours, including: Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, Assassin's Creed 2 (seeing a lot of 2's), Batman: Arkham Asylum, Shadow Complex, Fat Princess, Infamous, Red Faction, Trine, Plants vs. Zombies and, yes, MORE! Your favorite not in this episode? Come back next week and you'll likely see it there.
