Zombies, Warriors on Xbox Live next week

New Xbox Live Arcade games for action fans

It's looking like next week is going to be a nice one for surviving. Konami has just sent along word that their Smash-TV inspired undead shooter Zombie Apocalypse will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network next week for 800 MS points/$10.

Based on information Paramount Digital Entertainment to us, we're also pretty sure the side-scrolling beat-em-up The Warriors: Street Brawl will be landing on Xbox Live Arcade next week, with a yet to be determined PS3 release next month. This game will also be 800 MS points/US$10.

Additionally, Xbox Fan Force passed along word that a "Game with Fame" event on Xbox Live is advertising a chance to play against pop-punk band Paramore in Left 4 Dead's upcoming DLC campaign Crash Course. Now, this pack has not received a release date, but it would be weird to sneak an advanced look at the content just to play against a marginally popular rock band. If Crash Course comes out next week, it will be 560 points (US$7).

Having plenty of experience with both arcade games -- the former at E3, and the latter during an in-office demo a week ago, I've got to say both are well worth the money. Neither are rewriting their respective genres, but they do offer great throwback gameplay reminiscent of classic arcade games -- Smash TV for Zombie Apocalypse and Double Dragon for The Warriors. If you have to choose one, though, go with Zombie Apocalypse -- it's got a little more replay value than The Warriors. I will say, however, after experiencing extreme disappointment with the Watchmen and Turtles in Time Xbox Live beat-em-up games, that The Warriors was pleasantly surprising. Be sure to keep an eye on GamePro Arcade next week as they tackle these new titles.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
