Microsoft press release: There’s a new addition to the family of party games available on Xbox 360! “Rocky and Bullwinkle” is available exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade, along with an enhanced version of the tank vs. tank action classic “Battlezone” this Wednesday, April 16, 2008 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (1:00 a.m. PDT).
Based on the popular cartoon series of the 1960s, “Rocky and Bullwinkle” on Xbox LIVE Arcade is a fast and fun party experience packed with more than 100 micro games. Eight playable characters from Frostbite Falls are back in the living room, including Rocky, Bullwinkle, Boris, Natasha, Dudley Do-Right and many more. “Rocky and Bullwinkle” features five difficulty settings, as well as support for up to 12 players in local hot-seat mode.
The game takes visual inspiration from the 1960s with a decidedly retro art style, but the fun is as modern as it gets. In fact, cool cats who want to get up and move will enjoy 25 micro games that work with the Xbox LIVE Vision Camera. By moving around and expressing gestures – like rowing a boat or throwing darts – players can control the action in the game!
Developed by Zen Studios, “Rocky and Bullwinkle” will be available worldwide for 800 Microsoft Points and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. For more details on “Rocky and Bullwinkle” please visit:
“Battlezone” on Xbox LIVE Arcade adds exciting new multiplayer modes for up to two players both locally and over Xbox LIVE, including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. Plus, players can use the Xbox LIVE Vision Cam to challenge opponents on the battle field. Combine these features with new special effects for weapon firing, impacts and explosions and this revamped version of “Battlezone” is a must-have classic that fans and newcomers will enjoy.
To score points in “Battlezone,” players must shoot and destroy the enemy’s brigade including a standard enemy tank, supertank and a flying saucer.
@Moonwalker: Damn, Moon!!! I knew the name was familiar and just as I thought, I watched it last year. Truly great movie! If you haven't watched already, I recommend Chronicle (2012). (58 minutes ago)
I did not exactly know what it was about when i started watching it, and i recommend not reading more info on it. Watch it! I find the movie very well done. (1 Hour ago)
Saw quite an interesting shaky cam movie yesterday. It's called Afflicted. I actually really enjoyed it. Two dudes go on a vacation to all kinds of countries, but for one of them it takes a dark turn. (1 Hour ago)
@Sdarts: Yeah that's what i like about this game, i truly choose what i would if i was in her shoes. It really is a damn good game too. The time rewind feature...i love it. (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: Go to episode 4 with a very open mind. And I know episode 3's end is brutal, but steel yourself and when Episode 4's decision come (you will know), please think what you would do in RL. (1 Hour ago)
Finished Life is Strange ep3, not sure i like the turn it's taking at the end tbh. Can't speak more about it without spoling. (1 Hour ago)
Speaking of Resident Evil, RE2 remake coming from Capcom: [url] (1 Hour ago)
