Here’s something you don’t see every day: an original game for Xbox Live Arcade. Not that there’s anything wrong with ports of classics or movie spin-offs; but the promise of an all-new experience sparks more of an interest than “Hey, let’s play this game that we’ve already played, like, 10 years ago.” That said, it was sort of a bummer when we loaded up Arkadian Warriors and found ourselves playing Champions of Norrath Lite - that game came out only 3 years ago; we haven't even had a chance to forget it, yet.
