Lock n' load! Our cream of the crop, tip of the top choice for Download of the Week is Call of Duty Black Ops' Escalation map pack. This chunky slice of extra content not only comes served with four new online multiplayer maps - Zoo, Hotel, Convoy and Stockpile - but also a grindhouse-fused zombie map featuring the undead incarnation of the daddy of zombie films, George A. Romero.

Not only is big George's image used as a super zombie, but you get to play as Sarah Michelle Geller (Buffy), Michael Rooker (Walking Dead), Robert Englund (the original Freddy Kruger) and the baddest Mexican of 'em all, Danny Trejo too. And all the bloodthirsty action takes place on a haunted Nazi ship. Obviously. Plus, this weekend to celebrate the launch, it's double XP weekend so you can ramp up your progress to Prestige in double-quick time.

    I would buy ME1 again if I had a computer that could run it

    A recommend if you can't play online? I'm guessing no.

    Black Ops: Escalation is awesome so far! A few minutes ago I came across a blog that's giving out the Escalation DLC for free! I thought it was a scam until I saw the DLC code laying in my e-mail inbox. :D I'm not sure if there's any codes left, but if you want to give it a shot, here's the site:

    Call of the Dead was pretty good, but it had a lame easter egg ending. Once again.....
