Is this game going to have online co-op? I haven't seen any reviews yet specifying one way or the other.
Shit, I did not bother to look at that last night is it only local? It better not be what the hell.... I know Scott Vs is local.... so let me get this straight we download a game from an internet service made to bring gamers together.....but can't play with them......

"Wow, the sense of entitlement here is pretty ridiculous. You know how much development time (read: money) a game needs to have a functional co-op? This is a small indie developer selling a game for $15. They don't owe you anything.
The lack of online co-op is severely disappointing. It's 2010, and for $60 a year now Microsoft needs to implement some type of control to require certain basic features. I can play online co-op in fucking Streets of Rage 2.
It's lazy, and I feel bad for recommending this game to my brother, thinking we would be able to play it together. Silly me for not doing my research and assuming the MULTIPLAYER CO-OP was online. Still a decent game though, worth about 400 points.
I have a growing urge to write up my feelings about this discussion and some related ones in my first ever blog post someday soon.
Here's the gist of it: the xbox is the true casual gaming platform. Play non challenging stuff with your friends list over a beer.
Castel Crashers is a stats based button masher with hardly any skill involved.
Shanks is a hardcore affair, taking the edge off with a friend is not the idea. It doesnt cater to your demographic. Me? I am glad there are still developers out there who develop this type of game and spend their time on perfecting the combo engine over online coop. I really hope it pays off for them, otherwise we might end up seeing a lot less of these types of games in the future.
