We've got good news and bad news. We'll give you the bad news first. Takedown: Red Sabre was supposed to be heading to XBLA today, but has been delayed due to a last minute bug fix submission at Microsoft, meaning the release slot has been moved. A new release date has yet to be confirmed [via Serellan].

Now the good news. Another game is now available to download on the Xbox Live Arcade today. It's Marlow Briggs and the Mask of the Death, a cinematic action-packed shooter, apparently inspired by blockbuster films, comic book heroes, and action games "relentless high-octane combat, exotic and danger-filled environments and epic set pieces," it says here.

Set in Central America, you play as Marlow Briggs (obviously) on a mission to defeat an industrial evil while bound to an ancient 2000-year old Mayan Death Mask. The title makes sense now, yeah? Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is out now for £9.99/$14.99, and you can download it here. Look. Launch trailer.

Maybe they could've just sent Jackson Briggs instead.

Marlow Briggs is not a shooter, it's a god-of-war style game.

#9 most arcade titles are trash like this heap of junk but some arcade games(granted definately a minority) crap all over most retail games, for example,

Trails Evo
Mark of the Ninja
Retro City Rampage
Far Cry Blood Dragon
Battlefield 1943

Games in general these days lack any origional ideas, I'd prefer these any day over 99% of retail games. Sometimes I think morons only believe that retail games can be good because they can get 1000g's for their meaningless number to go up.
