Yesterday’s PlayStation Store update was chock full of big new releases and today’s Xbox Live Arcade update is nearly as large.
Leading things off again is the en fuego NBA Jam: On Fire Edition. The downloadable basketball game has been priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15), the same price as the XBLA-exclusive Orcs Must Die!, a tower defense game from Robot Entertainment.
Also available this week are a pair of Dreamcast ports for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) each: the self-explanatory Sega Bass Fishing and the rhythmic button-pressing of Space Channel 5: Part 2. Ooh-la-la!
Also available this week is the XBLA version of Crysis, which has officially been cataloged in the Games on Demand section of the XBL Marketplace. You can get your graphically-intensive alien invasion on for a price of $19.99.
Many of you may recognize Robot Entertainment as formerly Ensemble Studios, creators of Halo Wars and the legendary RTS series Age of Empires. They’re still supporting those titles, but today have announced their first new IP, Orcs Must Die! As you may have guessed from the title, this game invites you to slaughter as many of the green fiends as you can. The game combines elements of tower defense and action games, as you set traps to wipe out oncoming waves, or jump into the action yourself.
“Robot exists to make great games that our fans love. Orcs Must Die! is our first original title, and we’re counting on players to do what must be done: drive the orcs into oblivion!” demanded Robot CEO Patrick Hudson.
Orcs Must Die! will be showcased at PAX East in Boston from March 11 to 13, so expect more information here on Warp Zoned. The game is scheduled for a summer downloadable release on PC and consoles.
