we've got rock band (honestly it's a little repetitive for me). Any great games for playing with friends in-house, ideally a game that two friends can play other people online in? We love Fifa but if you play online it's only one player. suggestions?
NBA 2k9 is easily the best 2 player game on the PS3. Street Fighter is very fun with roomates too.
This man speaks the truth. Start a co-op season on All-Star and try to be league leaders in certain categories. For example, one of you play PG and the other play C. Then go for most assists/most points, respectively. It will give you more motivation than just running through team after team and it'll encourage teamwork.
Or play head-to-head every night and hang a chart on the wall of wins/losses. First one to 15 losses has to pay the cable bill, or something like that.
good tips. really looking for something more quest style where it's not just a fighting game or something that we aren't working towards something co-op style. 2k9 sounds okay in that regard if you can do co-op seasons. resident evil 5 too. any other games like that? keyword: co-op
My brother and I like playing co-op Dynasty Warriors 6. It's a hack and slash game where you can build your characters together, conquer levels, and get battleground achievments that can only be accomplished with perfect execution of both players.
The new one out is Dynasty Warriors : Gundam. It's traditional DW hack-and-slash, only with robots... very cool.
You can also probably pick DW6 up cheap, since I think DW6: Empires is coming out soon.
Also, a must buy game coming out in May is UFC: Undisputed. Awesome fighting game with online character building and competition.
Last game I bought was SF4. If you like 2d fighters... this game is a must own.
As mentioned already, your best bet is to look towards the fighters or sports games. Developers are continually moving away from local multiplayer content in favor of online play. There is Marvel Ultimate Alliance which is fun, but i'd imagine it requires knowledge of the comics to sustain interest. A regular old beat em up game with button smashing mechanics.
