It feels as if we've been going Xbox Live Arcade crazy today... oh wait, we have - and it doesn't end here, I tell you.
Kicking off Microsoft's fortnightly tradition of firing us the plans for the Xbox Live Marketplace into our already bulging inboxes - that's not innuendo! - we can bring you the platform holder's plans for the next few weeks.
In it you'll notice an extended Deal of the Week that will run for two weeks and sees a plethora of Dragon Age: Origins DLC get the chop, as well some Games On Demand discounts inbound - not that you'll download them anyway.
Plenty to get on with, so here goes:
August 5: Roxy/Quiksilver
