Train2Game News: UK Top 20 Games – 30.07.13

MinecraftThe games industry charts are a bit later this week as I was away yesterday. The Last Of Us has now been knocked off of the top of the charts and falls to number three. It was knocked off by Minecraft: Xbox360 Edition thanks to a surge in sales for the game. This week Nintendo add two more first party titles, the first being Pikmin 3, which debuts at number two beating it’s predecessor, Pikmin 2, which debuted way back in week 41, 2004 on Gamecube at number thirty two. The other Nintendo release this week is also for Wii U, New Super Luigi U at number thirteen.

The Last Of UsThe game charts are out and The Last Of Us is at number one for a sixth week running! In topping the chart again it also matches the unbroken runs of ‘Black Ops II’ and ‘FIFA 12’, an impressive feat as the title is exclusive to just one format. The only new addition to the charts is Dynasty Warriors 8 which has entered the chart at number five.

The Last Of UsThe dream team of Mario and Luigi’s new game, Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros still wasn’t good enough to knock The Last Of Us off of the top spot. If it makes it to six consecutive weeks at number one, then it will equal the unbroken runs of Black Ops II and FIFA 12. Aliens: Colonial Marines has re-entered the charts this week thanks to a budget price.

Train2Game News: Fastest selling XBLA Game

State of DecayThe official Xbox blog has specified that State of Decay is the “fastest selling original game ever” on Xbox Live Arcade.

The open world Zombie game from Undead Labs has sold over five hundred thousand copies on the Xbox Live arcade store to date.

Taking you beyond the initial panic of a Zombie apocalypse, and beyond the first weeks of the crisis, State of Decay is the embodiment of the “What if?” zombie apocalypse scenario. The world is now your oyster…a shiny oyster that happens to be filled with zombies. This game lets you fulfil your plans of what would I do if the worst happened?

According to Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain, there is a future for the series. “We’re laying plans for the future of State of Decay right now,” he said.

“There’s an incredibly sophisticated simulation engine driving the world of State of Decay – we call it FateEngine – and it gives s a platform to do much more with the game. For a start, I can tell you we’re working on a sandbox mode designed to be a pure survival simulation.”

The game is currently 1600 Microsoft Points on the Xbox Live Arcade store but the game is currently in development for PC.

State of Decay, The Last Of Us and The Walking Dead proves that Zombie games are still popular but, for how much longer?
