Xbox live weekly update

The year of the zombie couldn’t very well end without an appearance from Frank West. The star of Capcom’s Dead Rising returns in Case West, a standalone downloadable game that teams him up with DR2’s Chuck Greene. Chuck has been framed for the Fortune City zombie incident, while West is still tracking down the conspiracy he discovered in Willamette. The answers will be found in a remote (and no doubt undead-filled) facility near Fortune City. This could be the beginning of a beautiful, zombie-slaying friendship. Case West is 800 Microsoft Points.($10)

Dead Rising Case West

Raskulls is an action platformer featuring adorably deformed little skull creatures. The single player mode features three chapters and 60 levels. There’s also local multiplayer so you can take the action on with friends. Raskulls is 800 MP.

Shooter fans can sink their teeth, or trigger fingers, into Microbot. A corporation developed microscopic robots to help the human immune system. If you’ve ever seen a sci-fi movie or played a video game with robots, I probably don’t need to tell you what happens next. The robots go rogue and try to take over the host body. Now it’s up to you to pilot a Microbot and take down the viruses, rogue machines and anybody else that gets in your way.

Bomberman Live gets the Battlefest Bomb-Up add-on for 240 MS. Ring in the New Year by blowing up your friends on Xbox Live.

For Kinect owners, there is a demo for Kinect Sports available. Unleash your inner athlete in sports ranging from tennis to boxing, with no controller necessary.

Don’t forget that Xbox Live is having its Countdown to 2011 with different daily deals on everything from games to avatar items.
