Those of you who keep up with Xbox Live Arcade on a regular basis are probably wondering how last week's stellar game could ever be topped, right? Well, it seems that the people involved with scheduling releases knew it was too impossible of a task to handle and ultimately decided to give us the complete opposite of Ikaruga instead.

Rocky and Bullwinkle (800 Microsoft Points) has been compared to Yaris by my colleagues, but at least that game was free, unlike this Wario Ware-esque take on a popular cartoon show. The visual style may be reminiscent of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, but looks can be deceiving -- download this demo at your own risk.

Next up is Battlezone (400 Microsoft Points), a remake of the 1980 Atari classic. Besides the visual facelift, Battlezone for XBLA has a few new modes including deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the flag. But, if you're content with just the original version, that's included as well.

Do I even need to ask if these games look appealing to you?

Pokémon fighting game coming to arcades first for 'the challenge'

The announcement of Pokkén Tournament came as a surprise to most of us. We knew some sort of Pokémon fighter was coming, but the news that Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada was in charge was an awe...more

Bandai Namco is making Pokkén Tournament with older fans in mind

I get the sinking feeling it'll be a good long while before we get our hands on Pokkén Tournament, Bandai Namco's Pokémon fighting game for arcades (and probably Wii U). Until then, here's another quote about th...more

Pix the Cat is out now and its Nostalgia mode is sweet

For the same reasons I was excited as heck for Cuphead, I am loving Pix the Cat's Snake-like Nostalgia Mode for reminding me of Felix the Cat and 20s animation in general.  And then you realize everything else about this game is nuts and that it's just been released for free for PlayStation Plus members so I'm going to go download that jam right now before my subscription lapses. more
