Now three titles this week

Edit: Since publishing this article, a third game has shown up on the Marketplace:

Worms: Ultimate Mayhem - 1200 MSP
Worms™: Ultimate Mayhem is the definitive 3D Worms™ game! Load your weapons and experience a whole new dimension in destructive turn-based cartoon action! Taking the game into 3D creates all-new strategic and gameplay possibilities. With over 80 single-player missions and challenges, Xbox LIVE multi-player for up to 4 players, 5 multi-player modes, unprecedented customization of both worms and weapons, and fully destructible environments, it’s bursting with anarchic mayhem. Battle and puzzle your way through all of the missions from both “Worms™ 3D” and “Worms™ 4: Mayhem” - it’s essentially two games in one, and is the ultimate 3D Worms™ collection.

Discover the 20 bonus elements and 10 challenges as you explore the world of Mercury Hg. Download link: http://marketplace.xbox.com/Product/Mercury-Hg/66acd000-77fe...

I have no idea what Mercury is but being a starting price of 400msp, i'll definitely download the demo to check it out! Sounds like a steal!
I will protect you, no matter the cost!

I knew Mercury sounded familiar but I recognize it now looking at the screenshots. Don't remember where I originally played it though...PS2? I remember getting stuck on some part and giving up. May try it again for 400 points and some achievements O_o

If it wasn't for the XBLA sale, I'd be all over Mercury - I remember being impressed by it on the PSP.

I guess it'll always be 400 msp though so I'm in no rush to buy.
