I know, I know -- Adventures of Shuggy has an off-putting name. But, it's worth a look. Really, it is! This game is a solid platformer that revolves around single-room levels, many of which have different mechanics. One involves room tilting, while another takes a page from P.B. Winterbottom.

Variety is something platformers easily -- and often will -- botch. Adventures of Shuggy is $10, and if nothing else, give the demo a play when it hits Xbox Live this Wednesday.

And then there is Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, which I don't need to sell you on. If you are legitimately into MTG, your mind is already set. Just know that this one will set you back by $10 when it also goes live on Wednesday.

Coming this week on Xbox LIVE Arcade [Major Nelson]

Review: Nihilumbra

There's a nugget of a solid game here in Nihilumbra. Unlike many of the PlayStation Vita's offerings, it uses the touchscreen in a novel way that doesn't feel tacked on or forced. And the puzzle-platforming is supported well by an ethereal art style, score, and sound design. You just have to wade through a jumble of pseudo-philosophy to get to it.more

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more
