It’s Wednesday and two new games have been added to the Xbox Live Arcade. If you’re already familiar with this week’s PlayStation Store update, then neither of these titles should be a surprise to you.
First up is Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, which is a top-down, twin-stick shooter starring a team of Ghostbuster rookies. It’s available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
Also available this week is Swarm from the developers behind Penny Arcade Adventures, Hothead Games. Swarm is likely the only platformer where you’ll control “50 pudgy blue morons” and it’s available to download for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
More information on both titles can be found after the break.
