Alien Hominid and Heavy Weapon are must-haves for me. There's a free trial of Heavy Weapon on Steam and I loved it. The theme music is fantastic too.
I can't wait for Castle Crashers or the rumoured Worms game. And Double Dragon please.

I concur on the Heavy Weapons game. It's just more fun than a game should be allowed to be. Geometry Wars will make your hands hurt, but the first time you get 1,000,000 points, you'll scream so loud the neighbors will come running!
Yankees rule, Red Sox drool!

Alien Hominid is coming out this week according to the 1up yours podcast. They also mention that the month of March will be like "make-up sex" after all the February's no shows. So Expect other big name titles.

Has anyone else seen the movie to the new Wing Commander Area? I had my hopes up because a space combat game on XBLA would totally rock. Only problem is this space game you on fly on a 2-d plane in space.... WTF! there's no cockpit view, the single player looks like a 3-d version of asteroids, and the multi-player looks terribly boring.

Oh gosh, all of these new announcments for Live Arcade sound awsome! Alien Hominid, Wing Commander Arena, Boom Boom Rocket, Castlevania: SotN, Jetpac Refueled (Rare's new Arcade game), and a few others all look like a lot of fun.

Oh yeah, Alien Hominid is now confirmed to come out next Wednesday:

Geometry Wars and Doom. Though I am still trying a lot of trails so I will probably buy more.

May I reccommend Marble Blast Ultra?

If you are into platforming games such as Super Monkey Ball or Marble Madness, you'll really like this game.

Besides, it'll last you a while. There's 60 levels in 3 difficulties. While completing the first two difficulties is pretty easy, getting the achievment for completing all of the stages in Advanced Difficulty under par time will have you playing for a while.

Turtles isn't coming out in Europe.   :-[

But Worms has just been released and I've been playing it pretty much non stop.  Easily the best game on the Arcade, go buy it now.  Some people have been complaining about the lack of weapons, but I'm happy with them just including the classic ones, all the later ones unbalanced the game too much, even if they were pretty funny.

I dunno, I love worms but something feel off in the trail. I dunno the AI seemed to do some rather smart things, and then turn around and shoot into a wall a meter from it self.

I just spent an awesome evening playing through Alien Hominid HD's PDA games and Worms with a couple of friends - best night's gaming in a long time. Both these games are thoroughly worth the investment.

If I had more time, I'd love to try to win one of the silver trophies from The Behemoth (they're offering them to people who top the leaderboards). Alas, my high-score days are behind me for now.

You definitely may. I'll second the recommendation as well. It's a lot of fun.
