Coming up this Wednesday on Xbox LIVE Arcade, we're getting two new equally bizarre games. First is Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project ($10), a side-scrolling run and gun, which I feel like a lot of people are going to buy merely because they want to believe the Duke is alive. Nothing wrong with that!

Next is RISK: Factions ($10) from Stainless Games (Magic: The Gathering) and EA. As you can plainly see above, it's not quite what you might expect. Some of the playable factions include zombies, robots, and yes, even yetis. The level of absurdity present here has me dying to check the game out.

What's more, Hasbro Family Game Night will continue to be successful beyond all belief when it gets the following additions on Wednesday: Jenga, Pictureka!, and Connect 4x4, all of which are $10 a pop.

Fibbage is a fun digital party game, even if you only have two people

I was randomly flipping through my email last week and saw a peculiar Xbox One release -- a little party game called Fibbage. Billed as a "fibbing" party game (the likes of which I'm sure you've seen before), this one has a ...more
