Capcom Arcade Cabinet is out Wednesday so do yourselves some favours and walk this way. Warning: includes a fist of pure nostalgia to the face.

If you like puzzle games AND bargains, then you're in for a treat this week – physics-based puzzler The Splatters is getting its price chopped in half starting tomorrow, Tuesday 9 October. Just 400 Microsoft Points for a game that's as clever as it is messy? Hey, you can't complain about that...

Stand aside Beautiful Katamari, there's a new batshit crazy game doing the rounds and it's got a point to prove. Leigh Groocock goes hands on with SEGA's weirdest game to date and buy's a giant saw blade that looks like a doughnut in the process. Go figure.

"Slip off into the dream world and go on an aerial adventure as NiGHTS in this classic Saturn remake." Head this way to view all the latest in-game screenshots from NiGHTS into dreams...

If ever there was a game to be played whilst listening to The Beatles, this would be it. Ben Rayner rolls back the clocks and goes flying with SEGA's much loved - and misunderstood - platformer, NiGHTS into dreams...

When it turns out that being utterly bleak and somewhat depressing is a game's best point, you know there's something wrong. Martin Mathers braces himself for the zombie apocalypse but ends up facing a different kind of nightmare altogether...
14:32, 23rd Jul 2012
With HD remakes all the rage, can Activision pull off an Impossible and resurrect the previously dead Tony Hawk franchise by going back to its roots? Martin Mathers pulls on his kneepads and grinds down that ever-lasting rail to skateboarding success…

Damn you, PopCap – just when we thought we were out, you suck us right back in with a game we thought we'd already played to death. Adam Tingle licks the frog once more and dives into the psychedelic frenzy that is Zuma's Revenge…

If science and time-travel movies have taught us anything, it's that two identical entities can't occupy the same space at the same time… but does the same theory transfer to Xbox Live Arcade? Martin Mathers dons his safety goggles and haphazardly ignores the suggestion that he shouldn't press the red button... WARNING: May contain excessive use of the word 'Portal'.

Who doesn't like ninjas, eh? We reckon no-one… at least, not until they've played Square-Enix's latest Kinect-based outing. James Wright sneaks out of the shadows to deliver some stealthy justice, but ends up taking a shuriken to the groin...

When it comes to cars, it's less about the shiny bodywork and more about what's under the hood – unfortunately, Jeremy McGrath's Offroad has a hamster wheel and a bunch of elastic bands. Rebekah Stanney jumps into the driver's seat and spends the next two hours on the road to hell…
11:20, 27th Jun 2012
You know how last week, you downloaded Jeremy McGrath's Offroad from Xbox Live Arcade just like we did? Yeah, well apparently that didn't happen – after all, how could it have when the game is the only new addition to XBLA this week? Unless, of course, Microsoft made a huge error and put it up early, then had to pull it down to cover the fact that it would mean there'd be no content this week. But that would never happen. Never. Plus, a new Walking Dead episode! Wooo!

Complex name, even more complex game - as much as people may tell you that learning how to play Magic: The Gathering isn't that hard, actually playing it with any success is an uphill battle that some just won't enjoy. Martin Mathers draws seven from the deck and finds himself looking at virtual defeat before the fight's even begun...
09:55, 15th Jun 2012
Can a whittled down version of a game that's already been out on 360 for nearly five years really have what it takes to conquer Xbox Live Arcade? You'd better believe it. Martin Mathers pulls on his combat trousers and comes out fighting…

Divine intervention's great, but all the holy powers in the universe can't stop Ubisoft's re-imagining of this iOS game being anything other than average. Adam Tingle braves some wrath and remembers the age-old adage: if someone asks you if you're a god, you say yes…
12:26, 13th Jun 2012
Something of a quiet week for Xbox Live Arcade this week, with only one new game added to the main roster and everything else being fairly humdrum. Click through if you're keen to see just how minimal the latest update is…
11:10, 7th Jun 2012
The most complete and advanced version of Virtua Fighter 5, available as a downloadable title from Xbox Live Arcade as opposed to a Games On Demand title? You betcha – it's the highlight of this week's XBLA update and needs to be downloaded immediately. Oh, and there's some other stuff too… but you don't care about that, right? Because, you know, Virtua Fighter. VIRTUA FIGHTER.

Has Sega's games archive sprung a leak of something? With 12 classic games updated for Xbox Live Arcade arriving in the last two weeks, we're thinking they might finally be capitalising on having such a huge back catalogue of awesomeness. Plus, Ubisoft's Mad Riders is here, along with a huge amount of discounts for Popcap titles and two fairly decent new Games On Demand.

A classic it may be, but that doesn't mean people have to keep wheeling out Dirk The Daring's adventures over and over again. James Wright bravely ventures forth into the Kinect castle, only to be dropped into the jaws of the utterly awful control monster…

It may fit in perfectly between the seriousness of Pure and the ridiculousness of other arcade-style racers, but does Ubisoft's cel-shaded quad-bike effort have what it takes to finish ahead of the pack? Kim Wild gets down and dirty on the track, but doesn't quite make it to the checkered flag...
