A couple of great demo’s and Arcade titles headline the XBL update this week, including the return of the classic arcade game- Choplifter.
Second things second- Choplifter HD, zombies and all, has gone up alongside survival horror adventure- Amy. You pretty much know what to expect from Choppy. There’s flying, there’s shooting, there’s lifting… there’s also fighting the undead, which I didn’t really see coming but I digress. Amy is a little bit of a wildcard that I don’t know much about. Seems like a very interesting idea for a horror game though…
- Amy – 800mspts — This one is about a town overrun by zombies- don’t tune out yet! You play as a young woman and a little girl with a special condition who must escape the infection.
- Choplifter HD – 1200mspts — The classic arcade rescue game return with some new twists… yes the new twists include rescuing a bunch of folks from a zombie outbreak. You could probably tune out now.
- Gears of War 3 update — More Gears Avatar threads- now with 100% less boomsticks!
