Scare Me allows you to frighten your friends and family when they least expect it by customizing it to play freaky sounds and images when and how you want. Scare Me also includes 7 unique ‘shock’ games that you can choose from to trick your friends into playing to give them a real scare.

Scare Me is out again this Halloween (improved from last year) on the XBox 360 Indie Games section for you to download and enjoy. It’s perfect for Halloween parties or horror nights, as you can leave it on in the background and wait for a sudden shocking event to terrify somebody. It includes some sneakier modes too, like ‘Who Left The Game On?’, which mimics the pause menu of an arcade game with the options to either save or quit. Whichever option your target presses when they find this left on the television will give them a bit of a fright. Simple, but oh-so-effective.

In recognition of the MONOPOLY brand entertaining families around the globe for 75 years, MONOPOLY Streets will offer players the ability to become completely immersed within a MONOPOLY-themed world, re-imagined to experience the game at street level. Developing properties within high rent districts will produce lavish houses and hotels that appear within the world and further substantiate its visual appeal, while developing in the less expensive areas provide more modest, but no less interesting, establishments. The game will also feature player-owned headquarters that rise and fall along with the Player’s fortunes – large and luxurious when winning, stunted and minuscule when losing. For purists, MONOPOLY Streets will offer classic game board modes, as well.

MONOPOLY Streets will come loaded with an array of imaginative twists such as the ability to establish “house rules” where players can save their own set of customized rules tailored to their group of friends. In addition, players will be able to create and play as their own Wii Mii™ or Xbox 360 avatar, and have the city populated by their friend’s Wii Mii or Xbox 360 avatars. Online play will also ratchet up the fun on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, allowing players to find and challenge other aspiring moguls while tracking ranking and progress on local, national and world leaderboards. Additionally, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will feature an assortment of downloadable content that may include a variety of items such as themed boards and tokens.

“We’re taking Hasbro’s No. 1 family game brand and masterfully striking the balance of offering the classic MONOPOLY play experience and adding a spectacular new visual treatment as we bring the classic board to life with players walking the streets of MONOPOLY,” said Chip Lange, General Manager and Senior Vice President of EA’s Hasbro Division. “MONOPOLY Streets will bring people together and connect families all over the world by offering online gameplay through their gaming consoles. We think this unique, combined offering will bring families together around the TV this holiday season for a classic family gaming tradition they’ll remember for years to come.”

“Castlevania: Lords of Shadow takes an innovative turn in the Castlevania series, while still staying true to the franchise,” said Shinji Hirano, President of KONAMI (Americas). “Gamers will be impressed with a breath-taking adventure title that immerses players into a picturesque and dark cinematic experience. Combining those beautiful visuals with the help of Kojima Productions, has delivered the gripping Castlevania game that fans both old and new will come to love.”

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow players take on the role of Gabriel Belmont, voiced by Robert Carlyle, the hero of the game and part of the legendary Belmont clan from Castlevania lore. Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides her husband to his destiny – and hopefully salvation for the world. While demonic creatures of the night wreak havoc on the land, the souls of the dead are trapped on Earth and unable to find peace. Gabriel must track down the mysterious Lords of Shadow in order to unite the pieces of a relic called “The God Mask” that can purify the world and has the power to bring the dead back to life. Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back to the world. Armed with the versatile Combat CrossTM – the world’s last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords of Shadow and end their unholy rule.

Along Gabriel’s journey, gamers will traverse over 50 diverse and beautifully realized 3D stages, come up against over 45 enemies, and defeat adversaries that scale to the size of the complete environment with skill, power and timing. In total, the game boasts over 40 possible combo attacks that can be added to Gabriel’s arsenal, as players must use secondary weapons like daggers and holy water and combine them with light and dark magic for a wealth of powerful attacks to unleash upon your foes. Castevania: Lords of Shadow offers a wide range of puzzles with larger adversaries that require a specific means to exploit weaknesses, or object-related puzzles that will open doors or give access to previously unreachable areas.
