Chuck Norris. Action hero. Martial arts master. God among men. And now the star of three new Sims 3 arcade games for your downloading pleasure.

The first of them is "Kung Fu Master." Rumor has it that the game was delayed when beta testers complained that every button makes the Kung Fu Master do a roundhouse kick. However, this is not a glitch. Second is "Missing in Action." If Chuck is fired on by an enemy sniper, hit X-X-Up-Down to headbutt the bullet back into the gun. And lastly, "Texas Ranger." WARNING: If you unlock the highest level of Chuck, stand back, or be roundhouse kicked through the screen.

(OK, obviously, the games don't really work that way.) They are recolors of the arcade games included with Late Night, so you need Late Night order for them to show up in your catalog. You will find them by name in Electronics/Misc just like the originals. The cost is 1500 Simoleons, just like the originals. All are CAStable in four channels, just like the originals. Polycount, etc -- just like the originals.

One note in the interest of full disclosure: In fact the on-screen animations are also just the same as the originals, superimposed over new background images. So yes, as you can see in the screenshots, the Freezer Bunny is hopping merrily through 'Nam. Sorry. I have had no luck finding the animations to replace them. This is disappointing, but it's apparently what EA did for the games in the Regency Arcade, so there's unfortunate precedent. (If anyone figures out where the animations are, please let me know! I would love to swap out the video.)

Anyway, hopefully any of you who have built arcades, etc, will find these useful to add some variety (and testosterone) to your lots.
