F.E.A.R. Synchronicity Pack

More downloadable content for F.E.A.R. has been put up on the Marketplace. This pack costs 550 Microsoft Points and is roughly 316.73MB in size.

Official Description

You’ll find 3 new Capture the Flag and Conquer All maps including the expansive Dead Wood or you can take the high road or the low road to the enemy territory in Labs and get into some wide open mayhem in Depot. If Deathmatch or Control are more your style then jump into Waterworks and ambush your enemies or if you prefer things more on the claustrophobic side roll into Stockpile and see how long you can survive.

Bomberman Live and Yie Ar Kung-Fu on Xbox Live Arcade

Two new Xbox Live Arcade titles have been released this week, “Bomberman Live” and “Yie Ar Kung-Fu“.

Bomberman Live is 800 Microsoft Points and Yie Ar Kung-Fu is 400 Microsoft Points.

If you only want to purchase one, Bomberman Live is the better buy in my opinion. It is an iconic and classic game.
