We have to hand it to Mr. Driller. Though the decision to leave dentistry school and forsake the family practice probably mystified his loved ones at the the time, it appears to be paying off. Sure, there were some dark times (it's been four years since the last game in the series) but Dr. Driller's boy is finally making it big with a release this week on Xbox Live Arcade.

For 800 points ($10), you'll get the single-player campaign as well as the online multiplayer support for up to four players. It'll take a lot of downloads to equal the $100 per appointment he could have been pulling down, but he had to find his own corner of the sky. And for that, Mister Driller, we salute you.
