Four fantastic WP7 Xbox Live gaming titles

Engadget reported on some great new ‘Live’ titles coming soon to WP7, I have played geoDefense Swarm in the past when I walked on the dark side and currently have the original geoDefense (click to get your hands on it now!) on my Nokia Lumia 800 so that will be one title getting added to my download Q! But keep your eyes peeled to the marketplace for these great new titles!

It looks like our friends over at Microsoft have outed a quartet of new Xbox Live games that will be delivered to the Windows Phone Marketplace in the not-too-distant future. Being billed as “optimized for the newest Windows Phone 7.5,” the aforementioned — and somewhat familiar — titles include: Age of Zombies by Halfbrick, Bullet Asylum by UberGeekGames, geoDefense Swarm by Critical Thought, and Tamagotchi by Namco.
