EA has released a launch trailer for The Devil's Cartel, the third game in the Army of Two series, giving players a taste of what to expect when the game releases next week. The Devil's Cartel stars a pair of Trans World Operations soldiers code-named Alpha and Bravo, as they fight the violence of a ruthless Mexican drug cartel with more violence. EA says that this installment is meant to have a less over-the-top and more grounded tone to it than its predecessors, a claim that Polygon found dubious the last time we saw it in action. Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel comes out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 26.

Rappers Big Boi and B.o.B. have released a music video promoting EA's upcoming co-op shooter Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. We first learned about this promo video back in December when Polygon's own Phil Kollar got some hands-on time with The Devil's Cartel, discussing EA's efforts to give the post-slaughter-fistpounding shooter a less over-the-top atmosphere. Whether this music video aids or hinders that effort remains to be seen. Big Boi and B.o.B. will also appear as the voices of two in-game operatives that star in a bonus mission available to those who preorder the game from GameStop.

A playable demo for co-op action game Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will be available on PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live Marketplace on March 12, Electronic Arts announced today.

During the demo, the pair will split up: one to the skies to provide cover from above in a helicopter, and another headlong into battle against the Cartel on foot. The latest trailer for the title, posted above, introduces the pair's latest enemy, a mysterious masked...

With Good Cop, Bad Cop we plan to change that, clarifying what's good about a game — something previews are known for — and also what's bad. The structure of the series is itself a game of sorts and the rules are simple. For each video game, one player takes the role of Good Cop, while another takes the role of Bad Cop. One defends what they played, while another volleys ideally astute and razor sharp criticisms. Does it work? You should let us know in the comments. For the first episode, Russ Frushtick and I talk about Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, Real Racing 3 and SimCity.

Developer Visceral Games is putting a slight twist on cooperative play with what it calls "co-opetition," a report card of sorts that shows up at checkpoints to measure your exploits versus your partner's. But instead of highlighting something like a kill/death ratio to compare players, the report card rewards you for being a good teammate. "Anytime you're playing a cooperative game, you want to ... be able to say, 'Ha ha, I did better,' just for that little snippet in time, and it's still fun," said Greg Rizzer, producer of The Devil's Cartel, during a recent interview with Polygon. The game will tell you which one of you did better, but it's tracking actions like the number of times you revived your teammate. "It's really about playing together," Rizzer explained. Rizzer spoke...
