There is a new zombie game nearly every week in the Xbox Live Arcade. This time it’s an update of PC hit Zombie Driver.

Story mode has 31 missions and 13 different vehicles to turn zombies into speed bumps. Blood Race mode features 30 events that are all about how fast you can get through this city. Slaughter mode is a survival arena challenge with an upgrade system for your car. This vehicular zombie apocalypse is 800 MP. ($10)
Intel Discovered is a free Kinect game. Yes, I said free. This game asks if you have what it takes to be a superstar. Captain America himself, Chris Evans, will tutor you in the ways of action stardom. Chanel Iman will show you how to walk the runway. Redfoo, formerly of LMFAO, is your pop music instructor.
Borderlands 2 gets its first DLC expansion with Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty. This adventure takes players to Oasis.

Captain Scarlett offers up 30 missions, nine “badass” challenges and new achievements. This definitely sounds like content that won’t leave you feeling ripped off. It’s 800 MP to hang with these scurvy scoundrels.
