Earlier this summer THQ canned the Xbox Live Arcade Saint’s Row title, Saint’s Row: Drive By. Roughly 10 days ago screenshots surfaced for an alleged XBLA Saint’s Row game, Money Shot. Yesterday Destructiod ran a story with footage from the game, proving that if nothing else it existed at one time. The YouTube footage was pulled shortly thereafter citing a copyright claim from THQ.
The game seemed to involve a using the gamepad to guide a high powered bullet through obstacles while collecting cash and other powerups on its way to the designated target. Truthfully it looked more like a good fit for a minigame in Saint’s Row 3 instead of an XBLA title. Could we be getting a new XBLA Saint’s Row title, or is this just archived footage from the cancelled Drive By? Hit the jump for two more screenshots.
Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is an action-shooter that takes place in the Warhammer universe. Your objective is to board and halt an Ork Kroozer from reaching Imperial Forge World. Along the way, you’ll be fighting various enemies along with destroying many vital sections of the Kroozer. At only five levels, the game may seem short at first. But the replay value shines bright in the character select screen. That along with great pacing and an excellent upgrade system make Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team stand out in a way that not many Xbox Live Arcade action games have done before.

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is an upcoming XBLA title tie in for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, unlike many digital game tie-ins though, this one is actually designed to be good. The standard formula of death and weapons is still here, and you must actually have completed one game of Kill Team in order to actually receive the ‘power sword’ in Space Marine.
