The fighter gets a facelift and an audio upgrade, alongside an "e...

We're not about to start pretending like we understand what Yu-Gi-Oh is all about. (It's like Pokémon with cards or something, right?) Anyway, Konami has tweeted that Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Decade Duels -- try saying that one five times fast -- will be dealt out on Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. T...

XBLA is all about death this week. First up we have gruesome, deadly martial arts with Deadliest Warrior: The Game and then we have just, heroic, loot-driven murder with DeathSpank.

It's pretty much accepted that none of us here at Joystiq are good people. We have to wonder, then, just what we did to deserve a much-desired sequel and a new NinjaBee game in the same week.

Wise words indeed, but then pappy didn't know about Voodoo Dice, this week's Xbox Live Arcade release -- a puzzle game o...
