If you thought that Microsoft had an intent on slowing things down after the "summer of Xbox Live Arcade" promotion had finished you were dead wrong. Last week saw the release of Shred Nebula, Gin Rummy, Pirates Vs. Ninjas: Dodgeball, and some new content for Poker Smash. This week sees that bid and raises with even more DLC.

So what's worth getting people?
As a big slap to the face of gaming pundits everywhere XBLA throws more and more games at the apparent misconception that games aren't released in the summer time.

Well, actually that is patently false as I'm just now finishing up Mass Effect and have about 10 XBLA demos to catch up on. But more is always better, right? Right?!?
Before I go completely bonkers trying to play catch up, here's the latest achievement additions:
And yes, I realize I just made a seperate Geo Wars 2 achievement post. But don't you think it deserves it?

Wow, it's a busy XBLA weekend with not only a pile of Rez HD media but also the first screenshots and detailed info on Rocket Bowl. Without further ado here is all of the XBLA media that has been released this weekend:
In a press release this morning, D3Publisher of America announced that they will be publishing three titles for the XBLA service. While we already knew about (and are eagerly awaiting) Mad Tracks, the other two are new announcements for the service. RocketBowl is described as Miniature golf meets Bowling, While Puzzle Quest is a game that needs no explanation to casual game fans everywhere.
While Mad Tracks and Puzzle Quests are on my day one purchase list, RocketBowl sounds quite interesting and, if done correctly, has the potential to be the sleeper hit of the three.
