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?
