Well, seems like we're getting Arcade games on Wednesday and Fridays. Last Friday we had Tenormans revenge, today we have had Anomaly Warzone Earth, and acording to Major Nelsons blog, next Friday we'll be seeing the fantastic looking Fez

Yeah that's pretty cool we're seeing games released on Friday. Anormaly Warzone Earth is a pretty good game, I really enjoyed the trial and for 800 MS points it's good value.

FEZ is an insta-buy, scored 10/10 at EuroGamer and 9/10 in EDGE. It should be on the store now and I can't wait to give it a go.

Some great deals this week on XBL for Gold subscribers.

In particular Iron Brigade which is half price (600 MSP), the add-on (Rise Of The Martian Bear) is also half price (200 MSP) which makes this a steal.

Also Fusion Genesis is only 400 MSP, it's a pretty cool game, something different and well worth checking out at that price.

Virtua fighter 5 will be worth a look in for me.

Just wish they would hurry up and announce the release date for Magic the Gathering 2013.

Yep looking forward to VF 5 even though I suck at it.

The Deal of the Week is half price on all Popcap games. Might pick up Bejeweled 3 now it's only 600 MSP.

Edit: Just spotted Sonic Adventure 2 avatar clothes in the post above. Ran a search on google and see it's coming to XBLA soon. How did I not know this? Great news.

One of Rare's best game imho. If you like platformers then it's essential. Even though it was a launch title it still looks fantastic too. It's a no-brainer at 3.99. Perfect Dark Zero is great too, a different kind of FPS, I love it but a lot of people hate it.

Perfect Dark Zero is brilliant. Best 49p I've spent on a game

Will take a look at Kameo then.

Took a chance on Prince of Persia, don't know what its like but at 3.99 you can't really go wrong.

Anybody played it? I've played a previous PoP, that was ok.

Was thinking about PoP but I'm not sure, it's not about the price so much as it's about not wanting average games.

OK cool, would also be good to hear what you think of it if you do that. It's such an underrated platformer. A ton of people slate PDZ unfairly, it was made way before the modern template of FPS design became an industry standard (sprinting, proper iron sights etc) but it's still a great game, It has more variety and interesting missions than most FPS game out there, apart from Goldeneye and the original Perfect Dark of course. Lot's of single and multiplayer content.
