Charlie Murder is the latest release from Ska Studios, creators of a wide variety of zombie-related games like I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1NIT!!!1. Now they bring another zombie centric game to the Xbox Live Arcade. The game features side scrolling beat-em-up gameplay that seems to take lots of elements from other games in the genre, while still having plenty of its own to make it a unique experience. There aren’t too many games where you can use a large loaf of bread to beat down enemies, but Charlie Murder gives you this opportunity and more. Is this latest Xbox 360 release worth the time to play or is it dead on arrival? Keep reading to find out as we go through the best and worst qualities of Charlie Murder. HOT Variety of Weapons When it comes to the weapons in Charlie Murder, there is no lack of choices or randomness. There are of course the staples of a beat-em-up like pipes and knifes that you can pick up and use to fight, but this game doesn’t stop there. In Charlie Murder, you can pick up and use the heads of enemies you previously dismembered, the aforementioned loaf of bread, hand guns machine guns, medieval axes, witches’ brooms and so much more. Some of the weapons bring of a level of comedy to what is an otherwise non-comedic game. In some ways the variety of random weapons reminds me of another zombie-related franchise such as Dead Rising. On top of the physical weapons you can pick up, you also have magical attacks, such as a Black Canary like scream at your disposal based on the characters that you pick. RPG Style System Charlie Murder allows you to pick from five different classes at the start of the game including: Berserker, Tank, Mesmer, Mage, and Shaman. Each character class gives you a different experience as you play through the side scroller. It also features a level up system, unlike a majority of games in this genre, but it’s not to say it was the first. As you fight you will eventually level up where you get to raise your attack, speed, defense, and anar-chi (magic) stats. There are also trees of moves you can learn as you continue through the game at each level. Another RPG-esque aspect of the game is the use of clothing and items to upgrade your character. As with the weapon selection, there is a wide variety of clothing and accessories that you can equip on your character, including simple items like hoodies and white t-shirts, as well as more unique items like a Leatherface mask and light hobo gloves. These items can be found from the defeat of enemies or destruction of in-game property, as well as from stores using the money you collect during the game. You also collect items throughout that you can brew to make them stronger and usable by the player, which is essentially Charlie Murder’s version of alchemy. Music Fits...

Earlier this year, it was rumored that Arkane Studios (Dishonored) had taken over development of Prey 2 after Human Head Studios were reportedly kicked off the production. Bethesda, Arkane, and Human Head were all quick to deny the rumors, but a set of emails reportedly from Arkane Studios Creative Director Raphael Colantonio is feeding more fuel to the rumor.
According to Colantonio, Prey 2 will be the first project for Arkane's newly opened Austin studio, and is set to be a "spiritual successor to [System Shock 2]." Colantino said that a new IP was "not a possibility" due to "adding risk to the challenge of growth," but that Prey 2 would be a reboot to the series.
Bethesda and Arkane continue to deny these reports, which is interesting, since any game that is pitched as "spiritual successor to System Shock 2" sounds like amazing press in my book.
Meanwhile, Dishonored co-director Harvey Smith is reportedly working at the Lyons, France-based Arkane studio in development on a Dishonored sequel/successor.This is an excerpt from the full story which was originally featured on gamrReview, read the full version here - Leaked Emails Continue to Suggest Arkane Studios is Making Prey 2 - News
