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?

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.

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.
