New Bubble Bobble, Command & Conquer titles headed to XBLA this week

After an awesome showing during their Summer of Gaming, Xbox Live Arcade has a lot to live up to. And this week it looks like they're doing a pretty fine job with two new titles, Command & Conquer 3 Red Alert Commander's Challenge from EA and BUBBLE BOBBLE Neo! by Taito.
Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander's Challenge (whew!) is coming to XBLA this Wednesday, September 16th, for 800 points ($10). It features the voice talents of Ric Flair as Commander Hill, and that's all you really need to know to decide to make a purchase. You'll have 50 challenges to beat in this downloadable take on the strategy title, featuring 11 new units like Giga Fortress, Desolator, and Cryo Legionnaire. The trademark fast action and tongue-in-cheek live action cinematics that we know and love are back in full force.
BUBBLE BOBBLE Neo! (definitely not our caps and exclamation point) is coming to Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday for 800 points as well. For those of you who haven't played a Bubble Bobble title before (you are making us feel pretty old right about now), basically you're a bobbing dragon that spits bubbles you can trap enemies in. Lot more fun than it sounds, promise. Classic mode offers 100 single player rounds. If you have real friends, you can play with up to four co-op characters off-line in Arrange Mode, which is a lot better than just playing with your stupid cousin Matty who always tried to trap you in a bubble in the NES version. You and your friends can also compete for lifelong honor and respect in Versus Mode.
