Totally agree with you on the co-op part. I played Army of Two (the original) awhile back on my friends PS3, and loved the moments of, "Damnit, save me!" inches away from the him on the same couch.
Even though most games nowadays keep being built for online deathmatch sessions---there is something amazingly fun about working together, offline or online with atleast 1 more person towards a shared goal (such as, Left 4 Dead series)
Just preaching the good word sir on the, "Anti-Lol-", movement. I figure the more of that stop using it, eventually, the people that keep doing it will realize the pointlessness of spamming it.
Course I noticed, when there isn't smileys or, "lols", conversations always look more serious. Very serious. haha
I have never played a Tomb Raider game either (this is my first one) and no it does not have online co-op (offline only) and it is so absolutely amazing. I love that game because vs games are fun but nothing beats a well don co-op.
P.S. where did the Anti-lol thing come from? I didn't say lol to you. I made the same choice to refuse to use it unless I really DO laugh.
Is it? Like does it have online co-op? I was thinking about getting it, though I've never actually played any of the games in the series (grew up with a N64 when I was 8) so I figured it sounds interesting.
Course, that Scott Pilgrim beat-um-up game comes at this week too, which it something I totally wanna try out.
And uhhh...I encourage you to not use the acronym, "LOL", for the rest of your life. I've put a stop to it, in hopes that others will fight the cause too to put an end to people using it on unfunny subjects ^.^
