Forum goer tancredo sends us a tip of the next two releases for Xbox Live Arcade being Commando 3 on May 28th and Roogoo on June 4th. It'll be interesting to see if these release dates actually pan out. The word on Commando 3 comes from the Xbox newsletter; where as, the Roogoo release date comes to us from a preview on IGN Xbox 360. Keep your fingers crossed.

It's a quick and enjoyable read and will help you to understand how the crushing expectations of mothers (not to mention publishers) have made ToW much more than just a ReVolt and Bioshock mashup.
To prove my post title correct, I present two new screenshots from Things On Wheels.
Looks pretty. And shiny. Anybody excited yet?
While you think about it, go check out the interview with Dennis Bourdain of Load, Inc. over at (where else?) TeamXbox. He talks fridges that spit ice cubes, being inspired by ReVolt, flunking lobby design in Mad Tracks, splitscreen in ToW, and what he would do if he was restricted to 150MB on XBLA*.
*ToW currently stands at 900MB of uncompressed data and it's not done yet.
Did Mad Tracks leave you wanting more RC style racing? Looking forward to Vigilante8 but would like a little less carnage? Well it seems Load Inc, the guys behind Mad Tracks, are finally showing off a bit of their upcoming title ToW (which I believe stands for Things On Wheels, but I could be wrong). The only thing that I really wanted to see in the teaser (and yes I do understand that it's just a teaser) is sadly lacking, an online lobby!
Regardless here it is:
Unfortunately their is still no release date for this title.
Just a couple of weeks after announcing that they would be publishing Load Inc's ToW, Southpeak is at it again. Today they have announced that they will be publishing SpiderMonk Entertainment's Roogoo. Described as an unusual 3D puzzle game, doesn't have any semblance of a release timeframe, but Southpeak is promising to tell us more "soon". For now, we'll have to do with the following images, check after the break for the full PR:
