Well, here it is. Another week brings another exclusive deal for Xbox Live Gold Members to take advantage of... though this latest promotion is a little on the casual side. The standout bargain to be snaffled up post-haste is Bejeweled 2: the sequel to PopCap's insanely addictive original masterpiece that unofficially provided the inspiration/barefaced blueprint for the Puzzle Quest series. Feeding Frenzy2 and Tetris Splash are fairly good fun in their own right, though UNO Rush is a little on the shallow side (even as far as casual games are concerned). Note that Zuma makes a fairly decent little download at 200 MSP- though your money would go much further in the Indie Winter Uprising. Achievement hunters and scorewhores beware: there are some seriously nasty criteria to be met!
As always, click the link to download the demo or drop the points. As casual games, I'd suggest trying them out first as you'll quickly get a feel for the gameplay. Remember that Gold Members have to log in to access the deals!

This Wednesday is probably going to be very expensive. Quake Live and X-Men Arcade will be hitting the virtual shelves- and we'll be all over them.
