Download of the Week: Loads of games going cheap in Xbox Live mega-sale

All our downloads are piped in with the lightning-quick Virgin Media 50Mb Broadband...

Platform: Xbox Live | Publisher: Microsoft | Developer: Several | Price: Varies

Xbox Live is having a massive sale which means superb games are going for an absolute pittance. Such as? Bionic Commando Rearmed (400 MS Points), Trials HD (600 MS Points), The Maw (400 MS Points) and Ilomilo (400 MS Points - Gold only), to name but a few. That means you could get three or four great games for roughly the price of just one, although anyone who actually puts down Trials HD in the first week for long enough to try any of the others is stronger-willed than any of us.

Want more DLC? Check these out:

Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition | 3DS eShop | Nintendo | FREE

The classic Gamecube/GBA Four Swords adventure returns, only now it's got a single-player mode in it. Oh, and it's FREE. But make sure you download it before February, because it'll be removed from the store for evermore.

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins | 3DS eShop | Nintendo | £3.60

Wow, this brings back memories. The music of the Mario Zone, the bonus conveyor belt... classic, timeless gaming, made even more exceptional by the fact you can now actually see what's going on thanks to 3DS' gorgeous screen.

    Both Bionic Commando Rearmed 1 & 2 are up. There are more games for sale on Xbox Live then mentioned. There are 16 games in total from the above mentioned promo, along with some add-on sales and avatar stuff (this is not Deal of the Week). I picked up Outland (that Ikaruga inspired platform slasher that got rave reviews) for only 400 points too. I don't know why Ilomilo is mentioned, that game was on last week's Deal of the Week Sale. The Deals of the Week this week feature D&D Daggerdale, and Might and Magic Clash of Heroes. The
