Syndicate's New Co-Op Trailer Reveals Enviable Character Names

If there's only one thing you take away from this debut trailer for Syndicate's co-operative mode -- which is separate from the main single-player campaign -- make sure it's the names of the characters

Sure the core gunplay looks ace, and we love the visual style of the game — but we're sold on the operative's names alone. Emma Thalos? Tihomir Darius? Akuma? Aidan Fall? Who thought these up?..
