Includes HD version of 'The House of the Dead: Overkill.'

Sega has dropped a Halloween goodie on fans this week with 'The Typing of the Dead: Overkill,' an update of the arcade and Dreamcast classic.

From Sega, "The Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL, like its aforementioned console counterpart, uncovers the ugly, terrifying secrets behind the original The House of the Dead™; the daddy of all over-the-top shooters. This time though, trigger-happy creature blasters will trade in their light guns for keyboards and will need to hone their typing skills to repel the mutant hordes with lightning-fast spelling and lethally accurate grammar. Up to two players can take on the fright-filled story mode or one of three monster-maiming mini-games all designed to improve your keyboard skills in the bloodiest typing tutorial around."

'The Typing of the Dead: Overkill' is starting off at half price, which when factoring in the bundle port of 'The House of the Dead: Overkill' is a great value. 'The Typing of the Dead: Overkill' is due to receive a co-op mode as free DLC some time soon.
