Starting with Retribution without having played the others
Friend and I want to do some Coop. But we haven't played the other 2, and we think we skip those because of windows live. Is it important to play the first two because of the story, or can we start without problems?

thx

Depends on what you like, DOW2 campaign has less units but more story and character involvment. Retribution is all about the gameplay with a lack of a engaging story IMO.

would you recommend playing the others first? i thought because of windows live is shutting down, we skip these. is the story related?

The story is related but not 100% necesary. The other two are all about the hero characters and their stories. Those two games lead directly into this one - "Retribution" is what is about to be unleashed on this particular sector of the galaxy because of the events of the previous two games. Not having played them won't stop you from enjoying this one though.

and short question: we are just beginning, but will my coop partner have more chracters to control? after the first mission i have three, but he only has one.

You have to choose in the character select part. Change other heroes to his control... and any units his character buys in campaign are his to control as well.

ah ok you mean in the part where i can level up and equip the marines?

Yup. Between missions you should see the portraits of the heroes units and there is where you can select who has control. We usually do 3 - 1 and the 1 controls the army in addition to his hero.
