Without Major Nelson's gentle guidance we would still be in the dark, slaughtering each other like rabid animals in teeny-tiny cages. Also, we probably wouldn't know what was hitting every week over Xbox LIVE Arcade. The Nelson is so many things to so many people.
Oh, right -- Rocket Knight and Things on Wheels are slated to be the games hitting Microsoft's downloadable platform this week, as revealed by Major Nelson in a recent blog post. Rocket Knight (1200 MSP) is Climax's 2-D side-scroller, that features a cute critter armed with a jet pack. Things on Wheels (1200 MSP), on the other hand, is Load Inc's RC car racing game which stars mini cars, "crazy tricks," and "completely insane" tracks.
