XBLA in Brief: Star Raiders, Gatling Gears

There are two very different games on XBLA this week. On the one hand we have Star Raiders, a space combat sim and, on the other, we have Gatling Gears, a twin-stick shooter. It's worth noting that while multiplayer modes were mentioned when Star Raiders was first announced last year, it appears they didn't make it into the final product. Check out the latest XBLA in Brief and see if either game gets your gears turning.
