Pick your poison in today’s Xbox Live Arcade update: a futuristic shooter or an RPG puzzler set in olden times.
Yar’s Revenge is a new version of the classic Atari 2600 shooter that reimagines Yar as a teenage girl in power armor. Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is another reimagining of a classic game, albeit one originally released for the DS in 2009. The XBLA version includes high definition graphics and a brand new 2 vs 2 co-op mode.
Yar’s Revenge can be downloaded for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) while Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes has been priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
