News: Who wants some?
Two classic games (albeit "classic" in very different ways) were added to the Xbox Live Arcade today.
Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is a side-scrolling shooter in the vein of Contra and other similar shooters starring everyone's favorite, loud-mouthed, bare-chested, action hero. Actually, scratch that, Bruce Campbell was unavailable. But Duke Nukem is everyone's second favorite, loud-mouthed, bare-chested, action hero and he's just as capable of cleaning the mutants out of New York. Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
Meanwhile, Risk: Factions brings the classic board game to the XBLA for the first time with a new twist. Five factions, each with unique abilities, vie for world board game domination. But players are also able to use the classic rules if they wish. Risk: Factions is available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
More information on both titles can be found below.
Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project
Xbox Live Arcade
Duke Nukem is back in Duke Nukem Manhattan Project! New York City is being overrun by a mutant menace and it's time to de-worm the Big Apple. This explosive 3-D action game features the politically incorrect action hero defending the city that never sleeps, and its babes, from the evil Mech Morphix across 24 levels from Chinatown to Space. A super-sized collection of weapons, enemies and bosses await. As Duke would say, ?Babes, bullets, bombs. Man, I love this job!?
Wage war with five factions, each with unique abilities, in the original game of strategy and world domination! In Risk: Factions, play with the classic rules or reign supreme with objective-based and world conquest scenarios as you command your army and take tactical gambles to win the day. Then challenge your friends in local or online multiplayer and see how you stack up on the leaderboards.
