Roogoo and Aces of the Galaxy now available

It's Wednesday today and that means it's time to step into the Xbox Live Arcade waters once again, slosh your feet around and determine if you enjoy the wetness. Visual imagery aside, both Aces of the Galaxy and Roogoo are this week's new XBLA releases, are both 800 Microsoft points and both are said to be quite enjoyable. Especially the puzzle game Roogoo where early word on the internets is that it's worth your time to at least give it a trial download. Cue the overly happy Roogoo trailer ... NOW!

Roogoo and Aces of the Galaxy to XBLA this week

This week we're in for yet another Xbox Live Arcade twofer (it's starting to become a welcome trend) as both Spidermonk Entertainment's cute puzzler Roogoo and Artech Studios' Aces of the Galaxy make their XBLA debut this Wednesday, June 4th.

Roogoo, the too cute puzzle game will be available for 800 Microsoft points and feature 45 levels, multiplayer over Live and locally as well as plenty of evil Meemoos. The other half of this week's twofer, Aces of the Galaxy will also be available for 800 MS points and is an old-school space shooter featuring online and local co-op play as well as visuals that can be best described as "pretty pretty". Screenshots are below for your viewing enjoyment.

Aces of the Galaxy hitting XBLA next week

It seems it's been a trend lately for XBLA games to release in pairs and while we were a bit less than thrilled with this week's releases, next week does look better. In addition to Roogoo, June 4 will also see the release of the co-op space shooter Aces of the Galaxy. Little to nothing has been revealed about the game so far but XBLA thankfully gives us trial versions, and the graphics and co-op play give us more than enough reason to give it try. From what we can infer the game could be worth its 800pt price tag, we just wish Artech had gotten more out there about it.

XBLA Achievement Smorgasbord

After the XBLA drought last week, we're now getting hit by a relative flood of new things. First are a few new achievement lists, which include some games that have fallen off the radar a bit. Remember Aces of the Galaxy? We barely did either. The 3D space shooter was originally set to release last fall, and it looks as though Microsoft is finally readying it for release. How about Elements of Destruction? Remember that one? It gives you control over the forces of nature and allows you to use them to wreak havoc. Now Sealife Safari should be familiar enough to resonate, as we did a preview of the on-rails photography game recently. The full lists can be found after the break.

Sierra's ambitious Winter XBLA plans

If you're planning your next XBLA purchases for the next few months then be sure to not count out Sierra's upcoming library of games, because they actually look promising.

The crew over at IGN got some hands on time with all six, count 'em six, of developer Sierra's new games that are set to release on the Xbox Live Arcade this Winter. So, enough of the fluff let's get to the goods. Sierra's bountiful and very diverse Winter XBLA lineup includes a 3D space shooter called Aces of the Galaxy, a mystical hack, hack, slash slasher called Arkadian Warriors, the TV based Battlestar Galactica, a puzzling bunny game called Boogie Bunnies, a casual gamer's RTS Commanders: Attack of the Genos, and finally Switchball. See, we told you it was a diverse group of games. You can check out IGN's hands-on take of each Arcade title as well as screenshots and video from each game after the jump. And with such an interesting lineup of adventure, sci-fi, shooter and action based games we can't help but be most excited to play Boogie Bunnies. Dancing bunnies ... what more can we say?
