Good news cheapskates; Microsoft is slashing the price of a handful of Xbox Live Arcade games by half - for this weekend only.
Gauntlet, Dig Dug, Zuma Deluxe and (something worth buying) Small Arms have all been slashed for the weekend, the first two down to 200 ($2.50 or £1.70) points and the latter two for 400 points ($5.00 or £3.40).
The last one - a Power Stone-style fighter/platformer from Gastronaut - is definitely worth picking up if you've got some points

Smarty Pants is a family-friendly trivia game for four players, headed to Wii this Christmas. Developer EA Los Angeles has just been granted permission to use Nintendo's treasured 'Mii' avatars, so you'll be seeing your familiar self scratching his or her head at any of 20,000 questions. When you consider that Trivial Pursuit's question count is around 6,000 questions, that's a big number. But Trivial Pursuit doesn't make you dance. This does.
Players take it in turns

Beowulf: The Film will be out in November, and will be sharing a publicity budget with a Game of the same name. The film is produced by Robert Zemeckis (this isnt the last Zemeckis reference in this weeks Trailer Trash - youve been warned), and features an all star cast including Angelina Jolie, John Malkovitch, Anthony Hopkins, Crispin Glover, and others. This trailer for the game, however, stars a sword falling into a puddle over and over while some repetitive-looking
Namco have announced a Japanese release date for the next incarnation of their never-ending Smash Court series. The glory days of SNES are well behind it now - near photo-realism, real players and generally unfavourable comparisons to the latest Virtua Tennis are now the norm. Smash Court Pro Tour 2 offers up such pros as Serena Williams, Carlos Moya, Lindsay Davenport and officially endorsed tournaments including Wimbledon. With no official announcement of Virtua Tennis 3 as yet, this could
When you hear “Capcom,” you might think of Street Fighter IV's bank of
hard-to-master characters, or Ghouls 'n' Ghosts' “Surprise! Do it all over
again!” fake-out, or most anything with Mega Man in the title. But Capcom's
best performer over the last six months hasn't come from any of its stable of
legendarily testing franchises: it's been the company's fast-growing
Facebook/mobile division, in particular kid-ready crowd-pleaser The Smurfs'
As we plowed through all the latest assets to come out of last weeks E3 we stumbled across two never-before-seen PlayStation network games.
The first of these two games is Elefunk. An original puzzle based game that, from what we can tell, will play in much the same way as Lemmings. To save the elephants from falling into ravines and rivers you'll have to build structures from a range of materials, such as metal, wood or rope. Add to this the addition of online leaderboards as well as
Retro Affect, the developers behind the unique puzzle-platformer Snapshot, announced today that they'll be bringing the game to the PS3 and PS Vita this fall...
In a strange turn of events, Microsoft and Burger King announced today that the Burger King games starring a washed-up actress, a man in a giant chicken costume and the creepiest fast food icon in recent memory have sold two million copies. Two million. Thats the same amount as Gears of War, arguably the biggest Xbox 360 game of the season. Either all of America is in on the fact that playing as the disturbing King is a sick joke, or people cant get enough of them burgers. After all, the games
Say, do you want to burn off that double cheeseburger in the same place you ate it? Microsoft has begun installing Kinect demo units at select Burger King locations, further expanding the partnership between the two companies...
Above: The first screenshot for Sniper Elite V2
505 Games has announced a sequel to 2005's critically acclaimed WWII long-range shooter, Sniper Elite. Arriving next year, Sniper Elite V2 (Electric Boogaloo?) will be handled by the series' original studio, Rebellion Developments, and add a modern slant to its third person tactical shooter formula...
