This week, Xbox Live Arcade
gets not one, but two genres that rarely see the light of day on consoles. First, we've got the collectible card game, Magic the Gather: Duels of the Planeswalkers
. Unlike the weird Magic
title on the original Xbox -- which played something like a weird monster summoning / volleyball hybrid -- Planeswalkers
sticks to the traditional card game, which should make fans mighty happy. The game will deal 800
($10) damage to your wallet.
Next, we have the XBLA debut of the Sam & Max
adventure series, Sam & Max Save the World
. Save the World
is actually the first season of the Sam & Max
episodic series that has been available on PC and Wii for some time now. That's six episodes of comedy gold for 1600
($20). For those keeping score, that's the same price as the PC version and $10 cheaper than the Wii version.
