[News] [X360]

Certainly everyone must be getting over the latest GTA game because there are two new Xbox Live Arcade games out this week and one of them even comes with a contest attached.

Xbox Live Arcade

Buku Sudoku
1-4 Players / 2-8 Players via Live - Rated E - 800 points - Merscom

2528444710_f0dafca66e_o If you think a sudoku game couldn't offer much you'd be dead wrong.  The native HD resolution of the Xbox 360 allows players to easily read the grid and their pencil marks.  The controller is setup for an extremely fast entry method, something that is usually a barrier for electronic suduko games.  Last but not least, how often is there a chance to have a multiplayer experience with suduko?  Last time I checked, newspapers were made for one person to use at a time. 

If that is not enough, Merscom is even2527623571_b825dc6fdf_o sponsoring a contest with 
Xbox360Acheivements.org. In two weeks a drawing will be held with all the people who earned all 200 achievement points and signed up.  The winner receives a 40" LCD television and 5 runner ups will score a copy of Scene-It? Lights, Camera, Action for the Xbox 360 with four  big button controllers. Details can be found at Xbox360Achievments.org

 

Warlords
1-4 Players - Rated E - 400 Points - Stainless Games

2528486620_398c5a5012_o Atari's classic multiplayer coin-op experience hits the arcade today with Stainless Games’ remake.  Jump in to a fireball deflecting, castle defending, paddle controlled game.  Not only do you have to try to deflect the impending missiles from hitting your castle but it needs to be done in a manner that it ricochets off and into you2527665461_66d9e18655_or enemies’ area.  The pumping soundtrack and popping graphics should surely keep you from making faces over the camera as this game is Vision enabled.  The splendor has returned and has brought its friends, twelve fresh achievements ready for you to pound into the ground.

 

Xbox Originals 

Oops...missed this one from last week:

Stubs the Zombie in Rebel Without a PulseStubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse
1-2 Players, Rated M, 1200 Points, Wideload Games, 2005

Meet Edward "Stubbs" Stubblefield in Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel without a Pulse. During the Great Depression, he was a down-on-his-luck traveling salesman. Now it's 1959 and he's a zombie with an insatiable hunger for human brains. How could this happen?

The answer lies buried somewhere in Punchbowl, Pennsylvania, a high-tech "City of the Future" built by the world's richest man. Punchbowl is a paradise of hovercars and helper robots, where crime and pollution simply don't exist. It's the perfect city: safe, clean, and convenient. Stubbs can't wait to move in … and have the last laugh on humanity. Indulge your appetite for vengeance … and brains.

  • Be the zombie: Play as Stubbs the Zombie and conquer the retro-futuristic city of Punchbowl.
  • Possess the living: Use any weapon in the game—machine gun, bazooka, sniper rifle, and more, by clamping your severed hand onto the gunman's head.
  • Build a zombie horde: Convert your enemies into undead allies and lead a zombie assault upon the living.
  • Use your body as a weapon: Hurl gut grenades, spit zombie sputum, and unleash unholy flatulence to bring down your foes.
