One of the things we were really excited about when we originally reported on Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 was the fact that the game appeared to have four-player cooperative play. Recently, Xbox360Fanboy got word from Microsoft that the new Geometry Wars’ cooperative play will not be available online. So, that means you and three other friends are going to have to chill on a couch together and shoot pretty lasers.

The reason for the lack of online co-op was that the game is too busy to work well over the Internet. Again, my heart has been broken. I usually don’t mind playing a game with a person while physically in the same room, but Geometry Wars has become a sort of spiritual experience to me that I can only share with strangers. It’s like yoga, except with house music and fireworks.

Are you guys disappointed by the news as well? I know the majority of the Destructoid staff was nearly in tears earlier. Perhaps we can wait for a Wii port that will feature some online play?
