Real-life Human couple Liz and Aaron discuss the joys and sorrows of co-operative gaming with a significant other as they play and discuss video/board games with a co-operative bent! They are definitely not robots. The Co-Operatives releases every other week and is a part of the VStheUNIVERSE Network.
