- There really _is_ a lot of Xbox 360 Live Arcade-related news swilling around today, so maybe it'd be best to lay them all out on the table at once, and poke them a bit to see if they're still moving:

- XBLArcade.com has spotted that " the German version of the ESRB, the USK, has just rated a game for the 360 called 'EETs Chowdown'... could this be the first signs that [neat indie puzzle game] Eets could be making it's way to XBLA like many have asked for?" I'm gonna hazard a guess of 'Yes' - and it's nice to see the game, which was one of the most worthy titles not to make the IGF finals this year, getting an XBLA conversion.

- We've got a postmortem of Naked Sky's Roboblitz for XBLA up on Gamasutra today, huzzah - here's the blurb: " Among the first games to utilize Epic's Unreal Engine 3, Naked Sky's RoboBlitz squeezed a great deal into 50mb for its Xbox Live Arcade release. In this Gamasutra postmortem, we learn firsthand the joys and pitfalls of the self-funded indie team's first title."

- Some amusing chap on NeoGAF spotted that today's XBLA release, PopCap's Heavy Weapon, is rated E10+ but includes the content descriptor 'Tobacco Reference' - smokin'! Which led me to check the ESRB website to see which other games had the warning - mainly those louche Europeans (SingStar: Rocks!, Cold War), and also Ratchet & Clank clone Ruff Trigger - The Vanocore Conspiracy, and even more bizarrely, Disney DVD Game World: Disney Dogs Edition. I bet that's Cruella De Vil's fault!

- Electronic Arts have announced a new XBLA title, 'Boom Boom Rocket', produced with Geometry Wars creator Bizarre Creations, and also on Gama, we have a chat with EA's Chip Lange about EA's plans for the service. The game itself sounds neat, too: "In Boom Boom Rocket, players both solo and multiplayer are made to trigger rockets to the rhythm of the game's soundtrack... Different colored rockets are mapped to different buttons of the Xbox 360's controller." Looking forward to it.
