There weren’t too many indie games released last week, so we are adding those games with this week (we suspect it was the long weekend and gorgeous weather)!
Best bets this week include: Avatar Arena, a FPS starring your avatars; The Chickening, a run-and-gun platformer; Island Adventure III, a point-and-click adventure game; and Avatar Mayhem, a sandbox Avatar game involving building in an urban world.
Below is a list of games released between May 17, 2013 and June 7, 2013. Descriptions are from the Microsoft site (so don't blame us) and the prices are all in Microsoft Points (MP). The conversion rate is currently $1.25 for 100 MP (or $10 for 800 MP) and points can be purchased either through Xbox Live, the Xbox web site or gift cards at various retail locations. Late additions will be added (so check back).

Cops And Robbers

Cops N Robbers is a throw back to the classic arcade style that we all love. Get all the coins without getting busted by the cops!
Mount Your Friends
(80 MP, 6/7/2013, Stegersaurus Games)
Experience the extreme simulated sporting sensation that's sweeping our digital nation! Mount Your Friends is a fiercely competitive sporting event for you to play with your friends in the contextual security of your own couch, assuming that your couch is not composed of sexual innuendo. If it is, I would suggest buying a new couch or at least getting the current one cleaned professionally.

Evolve or die! You are a tiny cell floating around somewhere in the universe. You will have to evolve and add cells to your original cell. BUT!!! Watch out for evil bosses and nasty viruses.
