This weekend I'm traveling out of town to visit some old friends I haven't seen in awhile, we plan to spend the whole weekend hanging out and drinking booze, and I'd like to enliven to event with some cool couch MP games for my PC. I've already got Nidhogg and Samurai Gunn lined up, I was thinking of getting Risk of Rain too. Are there any other cool 2-4 player local co op games I can get on my PC that are easy to pick up and play without too much fuss?
It's weird, people talk about Orn and Smaugh as hard, and the Four Kings as hard, but I beat both of those bosses my first try (granted I'd helped people beat O&S as a phantom to get sun medals) I thought the Bed of Bullshit was much more annoying, and Seathe and the the last boss.
I remember Patrick complaining about the lack of a fast travel in this game, but I really, really enjoyed rounding up my pawns and setting out on a journey from the capital to wherever, hoping to beat nightfall. I realize I'm in the minority, but I like games where just going from place to place can be part of the adventure.
I wonder if Dark Souls would be here if not for Load Our Last Souls.
DS is not the game of the generation. If anything Demon's Souls would be before Dark Souls since it not only started the series but was much more brutally difficult than DS. ME2 isn't really the game of the generation either--this whole poll has shown people just vote for what they like and not what's actually the game.
