This week on Xbox Live Arcade
we get not one, not two, but three
new games. Lined up in a row -- like so many ducks -- we have:
- Shred Nebula (800 / $10)
- Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball (800 / $10)
- Gin Rummy (400 / $5)
is a space shooter that utilizes strafing mechanics instead of the twin-stick format we've become used to in games like Geometry Wars
. It also boasts online dogfights for 8 players. Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball
is ... um ... dodgeball. It now sports three different gameplay modes -- in addition to the single-player story mode -- and can be played by up to 8 players. Finally, there's Gin Rummy
, which is ... Gin Rummy. It supports 4 players online and contains six different versions of Rummy.
Will any of these wind up on your digital shelf?
