Aces of the Galaxy and Roogoo on XBLA this Wednesday

Two games are prepped and ready for action on Xbox LIVE Arcade this week, the first being Aces of the Galaxy (800 Microsoft Points), an on-rails shooter. The second is a puzzle game named Roogoo, which will also be priced at 800 Microsoft Points.

Aces of the Galaxy promises to be an “old-school arcade thrill-ride.” With local and online co-op, crisp visuals, and the ability to go into slow-mo mode during firefights, it just might live up to its own hype.

To be honest, Roogoo didn’t look all that appealing to me until I heard multiple testimonies about how wildly addictive it is. Sure, the concept of the game is pretty straightforward — match falling peices with the appropriate hole — but sometimes the simplest of puzzle games end up being the best.

Are any of you thinking of checking Roogoo or Aces of the Galaxy out?
