We've already posted our (favorable) review of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, which leaves only one other Xbox Live Arcade release this week: The Adventures of Shuggy.

Sega Rally Online Arcade marks the sole release on Xbox Live Arcade this week. Based on the "DNA" of Sega Rally Revo and Sega Rally 3, it should be comfortably familiar to fans of the series. For the uninitiated: It's essentially power sliding and lots of mud. Watch the latest XBLA in Brief and s...

This week on XBLA in Brief, we take a look at the reboot of the Atari 2600 title, Yar's Revenge. Suffice it to say that Yar's Revenge has less to do with the original and much more to do with games like Panzer Dragoon and Sin & Punishment. In other words, it's a brightly colored, anime-inspir...
