Regardless, a lot of action games these days usually contain one or more of the above. Case in point: Zombie Driver HD, out now on Steam and Xbox Live Arcade. While it may not include QTEs or barrels, Zombie Driver HD does supply you with a never-ending horde of the living dead. Your only weapon against the ghouls? A garage full of badass, weapon-equipped vehicles designed to make the undead… well… dead. (more…)

XBLA Today: Serious Sam 3: BFE, Zombie Driver HD, Discovered

Today’s trio of additions to the Xbox Live Arcade couldn’t be more different.

First up, there’s Serious Sam: BFE (1200 Microsoft Points/$15), one of the wildest first person shooters on the PC, now available for the XBLA:

Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs, and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Brutally fast-paced action, massive shootouts, and thrilling cooperative play make for the most explosive Serious Sam game ever! Contains the full single-player and cooperative campaign modes.

Next up is Zombie Driver HD (800 Microsoft Points/$10), a top-down car combat game that pits a variety of vehicles against the lumbering undead:

Insane mix of cars, speed, explosions, blood and zombies! Fight through an epic narrative campaign or test yourself in the Slaughter and Blood Race modes. Engage huge bosses, save survivors, drive crazy vehicles such as a bulldozer, fire truck or even a tank and smash everything in your way. Take part in the Blood Race tournament – chase other cars and take them down without mercy on brutal racing tracks. Jump into the Slaughter mode and survive as long as possible on specially crafted arenas.

Finally, we’ve got Discovered, a Kinect-powered “original interactive film” that promises to give you a taste of stardom. Due to a sponsorship from Intel, Discovered is a free download on the XBLA:

Do you have what it takes to be a superstar? Get schooled by Chris Evans on the secrets of the action hero. Get styled and learn how to work the runway with Chanel Iman. Rock the party with Redfoo of LMFAO. Live video play puts you in the action: punch, jab, kick, jump — pose, smile — surf the crowd. Pass these celebrity tests and you’ll be slated for stardom. Share the custom movie poster of you and Evans, and your magazine cover shot, with your friends.
