Dead Block XBLA is Dead Cheap for One Week

This summer has had one of the worst droughts in living memory.  Not in terms of water, but in terms of quality new games.  Like a shambling corpse the game industry is beginning to awaken as the winter closes in.  What better way to fill in the time between now and Borderlands 2, but by purchasing Dead Block on xbla for only 400 Microsoft Points?

Dead Block Now Available on PC

In case you missed it: Dead Block recently launched on PC.  It's a tower defense/action game where four players battle against, wait for it, a ZOMBIE HORDE!  Set in the 1950s, the invention of Rock n' Roll has spawned a "musical plague" which threatens all of mankind.  Build traps and barricades, upgrade weapons, and use one of three unique characters to survive the night.  The stylized graphics and campy humor may make this title worth another look.

A Pair of Trailers for Dead Block

Our own Sam Tyler announced Dead Block on Co-Optimus a few weeks ago.  In his article he subtly alluded to the gaming industry's tendency to occasionally overuse an idea once it has proven popular.  I like his style, so in the spirit of the industry, I'm going to "borrow" it.  (I'm even reposting one of the  trailers he linked.) Dead Block is the latest "dead" title to "deaden" up the "undead" market place.  Seriously, type "dead" into Co-Optimus' search box.  Attack from the Dead, Dead Block, Dead Horde, Dead Island, and Dead Nation pop up.  Don't forget Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Dead Rising 2, House of the Dead Overkill, etc.  And remember, we only cover co-op games.  I am officially copyrighting the titles Dead Dungeon, Dungeon Dead, and either or both of those titles with an "of the" crammed in the middle.  Okay, I came up with the title.  Now someone go make the game and give me 50% of the profits.  Game development is easy!
