New Diabolical Pitch screenshots bring the heat

Grasshopper Manufacture has released five new screenshots of their upcoming Kinect enabled baseball/horror hybrid Diabolical Pitch. For those unfamiliar Diabolical Pitch gives players control over a baseball player in an amusement park overrun by horrors. To fend off the game’s enemies, you’ll be throwing baseballs utilizing Kinect’s motion sensor. Think of it as a quasi-light gun game. One that has you throwing fastballs at guys wearing tiger masks. The madness can be kicked up a notch by playing the game with a friend in multiplayer mode, which allows you to combine forces and utilize different abilities and power ups. To take a look at the rest of the screenshots that Suda 51’s gang has tossed our way, click the link below.

Weekend Rant: The seven (or so) deadly sins of cooperative play

Weekend Rant is a non-regularly occurring weekend mini-editorial. In layman’s terms that basically means that if a staff member has something they want to rant about they can do so on any given weekend.

There’s a list of disturbing trends that have developed within the gaming industry this generation, and they revolve around cooperative play. Co-op is nothing new to gaming. It has existed since the earliest days of coin-op arcade machines going back decades. This generation however, co-op has evolved. No longer do we just get to tread through a game’s campaign with a friend, sometimes we get an entire stand alone co-op campaign. In other instances, we get completely unique cooperative modes with their own setup and rules like the highly successful Horde mode in Gears of War, or Zombie mode in Call of Duty. More than ever, developers are taking advantage of the fact that its just plain fun to play games with your friends. The evolution of co-op has also unfortunately created problems. And its about time we start talking about them.
