Microsoft just dumped a list of games coming to the Xbox Live Arcade service in the coming weeks in our laps, and I'm happy to say that this week, the service will receive Mutant Storm Empire, the sequel to the top down shooter Mutant Storm Reloaded. I've been a Mutant Storm fan since the PC days, so this $10 download may be in my future. What games are coming in the near future?

action-puzzle platformer. N+ features inadvertently homicidal robots,
