Xbox Live Update: Lobo, Fuse, and Sam


This week on the Xbox Live Marketplace we see the first downloadable character for NetherRealm Studios Injustice: Gods Among Us. The new character is Lobo, and if you don’t have the season pass he will run you 400 MP. There also two new costume packs for Injustice as well. The Bad Girls and Teen Titans pack will run you 240 MP and will include three costumes  per pack. the Bad Girls pack has costumes for Wonder Woman, Harley, and Catwoman. The Teen Titans pack includes costumes for Cyborg, Raven, and Deathstroke. A demo for Insomniac’s first multiplatform title since, well never. Fuse is a third person action title that can best be described as Gears of War meets Resistance, meets Borderlands skill trees, meets typical Insomniac flavor. The demo has all four playable characters to level up and has up to 4 player online co-op to tool around in. I was very impressed with the demo, though the game has had next to no marketing. The game is due out at the end of the month and nothing, I had to look up the release date because I had no idea when it was being released. It’s weird that such a celebrated studio as Insomniac is getting little marketing for something that could be a co-op players dream. There will be two Arcade offerings this week, first is the Doritos Crash Course 2. Crash Course was a game developed for the Unlock Xbox promotion back in 2010. The game was fun and provided some decent platforming via a game show stage like Ninja Warrior or that awful American version, Wipeout. The second title will follow the first and will be free upon release. Monaco is the second title this week. Monaco is a stealth action co-op title that will run you 1200 MP. The Serious Sam franchise is on sale this week with the titles hitting 50% off. Here is the list:

Serious Sam 3: BFE 400 (50% off)
