There's a pair of new games to choose from on the Xbox Live Arcade this week with the web-swinging Alien Spidy and colourful platformer Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, alongside the usual DLC and deals.

As well as The Betrayal, Assassin's Creed III's second episode of The Tyranny of King Washington (reviewed here), you can also get the Gears of War: Judgment VIP Season Pass, Aliens: CM's Bug Hunt and Tomb Raider's multiplayer Caves & Cliffs map pack.

If it's deals you're after, then you can get a bunch of Ubisoft odds and ends at half price, including Assassin's Creed add-ons and a range of XBLA titles such as Mad Riders, Beyond Good & Evil, Rayman 3 and Outland.

Everyone should play Beyond Good and Evil and help get the sequel made already. I think I'll finally pick up Outland though, always wanted to try it out.

Only Giana Sisters for me.

Maybe something during the Spring Sale if there's something good I don't have.

@13 They come up pretty regularly and it's been a while since the last one, so I would expect one fairly soon.

For anyone getting the GoW season pass: if you "buy it" from GameStop you get a free 400msp for buying it. It's actually just a code for 1600msp and a code for 400msp for $19.99. So if you just wants msp this is a decent sale and nobody's forcing you to buy the pass.

It's about time I bought Rayman 3 HD. Kept putting it off during the other sales it has been in, so I'll finally snap it up.

@6 I never Played the game before, but I have heared so many people say its good and waiting for a sequel for this game. so I said why not buy it? so after the first 5 minutes of the game I saw what people meant by wanting a sequel, im enjoying every second of it and when I'm going to finish it ill be thirsty for a sequel too. in short this game is awesome. recommand buy for anyone.

I got Giana Sisters (sadly nothing to do with Gianna Michaels...) on Steam, but my laptop's not exactly built for games, so it only runs on a half-sized window.

Hoping Spring sale has some COD maps from older games. I missed last year's sale. I doubt they'll go on sale again within the next year, but here's to hoping!

@#23 - To be fair, that's the same price it was on Steam. So I mean, it's not like it's an XBLA thing. Also, they were giving out free DLC or something, or planning to.

But I agree. Most likely getting it with Bing/XBLR points though, unless it has a sale or pulls a Skulls of the Shogun.

Aliens CM: Bug Hunt? Maybe they should have tried that before releasing the game!
Good to see them so optimistic, but 1200msp? FAIL
