No surprises--pleasant or otherwise--this week on Xbox Live Marketplace. Xbox PR dude Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb busted out this week's full list of releases on his blog, revealing, most noteworthily, that Earthworm Jim HD is this week's Xbox Live Arcade downloadable.
He also outlined another group of games getting the Deal of the Week treatment. Do note that there's no rhyme or reason to the group or price slashes, and doubly note that all the games that received the Voorhees "hello" are all pretty-good-to-standard downloadable offerings.
Lastly, Nelson revealed the next two new-old games that are set to join the Games on Demand line-up (in most territories): Red Faction: Guerrilla and Need for Speed Undercover. Triply note that the latter game is not a good game. It could be called by many a "bad" game, in fact.

As usual, the Deal of the Week will run until Sunday afternoon or so and will only be available for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Silver members, though, can join with the Gold crowd in giving Microsoft and respective publishers money for the Games on Demand and Xbox Live Arcade downloads which should be appearing on June 8 and June 9, respectively.
