As the highs and lows of E3 finally sink in, here's an updated list of what you can expect from Xbox Live next week. As always, this comes courtesy of Major Nelson.

A further two games have been added to the Arcade catalogue, and at least one of them is likely to make you spend some of your precious money. Puzzle Quest 2 will be available this week at the not-so-friendly price of 1200 MSP (AU$20). It mightn't be for everyone, but there's no doubt that the original made a big impact. So, if you're into that type of gem-matching-fantasy hybrid, then make sure you have some funds available on Wednesday.
The second new addition to the Marketplace is called Ancients of Ooga. No, we haven't heard of it either and yes, the name is ridiculous. What we do know is that it comes from the people behind Cloning Clyde and will cost you a more reasonable 800 MSP (AU$13). Take your pick, or alternatively just gaze at the pretty screenshots until the sale prices arrive.
