Its a brand new week so Live members with a Gold Membership can look forward to a host of top deals from Microsoft in their Deal of the Week update. This week sees content for a number of titles slashed in price in an effort to lure in potential purchasers, so lets take a peek at what Microsoft have in store for loyal Gold members this week;
Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmares Collection
Red Dead Redemption is one of the most popular 360 games out there, with its mix of Wild West themes and sandbox style gameplay ensuring that it became much more than "GTA with Cowboys". Thus Microsoft have decided to treat Gold members to a cut price version of the Undead Nightmares Collection.
This. With zombies...
The collection features three packs of Red Dead DLC; the Undead Nightmare Pack, the Liars and Cheats Pack and the Legends and Killers Pack. Each pack provides the player with a host of new features for their copy of the game, ranging from a new single player campaign through to a range of multiplayer goodies.
Original Price: 1600 Points
Deal of the Week Price: 1000 Points
Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse
Ah good old Stubbs. Our zombified friend first graced consoles back in 2005 when the game was released on the original Xbox. It was a fun little romp, putting the player in control of a zombie for a change and letting them go to town on the resident humans. The general goal was to devour the brains of as many humans as possible, gaining health and turning them into zombies in the process. It's mindless fun, if you'll excuse the pun, and is being offered on the cheap to Gold members.
Original Price: 1200 Points
Deal of the Week Price: 800 Points
Dead Rising 2: Case West
Keeping with the zombie theme, Microsoft are also offering gamers the chance the bash some zombie skulls in with Dead Rising 2: Case West. The game offers a similar experience to Dead Rising 2. You're stuck in a shopping mall with only zombies and survivors for company. However this time you have company. Case West offered gamers to play a co-op version of Dead Rising 2, either taking control of Dead Rising 2 protagonist Chuck Greene or his illustrious predecessor Frank West. Its more zombie splattering fun either way and its at a cut-price if you fancy it.
Original Price: 800 Points
Deal of the Week Price: 400 Points
Probably the most obscure title in the set of deals, Twin Blades is a small shooter game set in the medieval era. It has an anime-esque graphical style and, again, its all about murdering some zombies. Players take control of a nun as she destroys zombies across a number of different levels.
Original Price: 400 Points
Deal of the Week Price: 200 Points
Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing
We finish things off with yet more zombie slaying action. Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing brings the survivors from the original Left 4 Dead into the sequel for some more co-op zombie slaying. Gamers can play online as part of a team, or solo with computer controlled companions as they make their way through the zombie hordes.
Original Price: 560 Points
Deal of the Week Price: 280 Points
So there you have it. All of you 360 gamers with a Gold membership can gear up for some cut-price zombie slaying if you have the spare cash. The rest of us will still need to pony up the full amount however.
