XBLA Market Update – Old-School New Releases

Re-imaginings and re-releases are the name of the game this week at Xbox Live Arcade. Old school FPS fans have the hot-blooded violence of Quake Arena Arcade to warm them up this winter while party gamers have Bomberman Battlefest, which supports 1-4 local players and an online mode for up to 8 players.
