Two weeks: four games on XBLA for the Xbox 360.  I like those odds.  This week we get Eets: Chowdown and Pinball FX.  I have been looking forward to Pinball for awhile but Eets may little to funky for my taste.  Both games will cost 800 MS points, are rated 'E for Everyone' and will be available to all Xbox Live regions at 5:00 a.m. EST on Wednesday April 25th.  Full release and game details after the jump.
