If you hadn’t noticed, Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is available on the Australian Xbox Live Marketplace. Whether it’s good or not, I can’t say, but as long as it doesn’t take itself too seriously, all should be well. Considering how much Gabe and Tycho love games, I doubt they’d let rubbish be made with their names.
For those after a taste of the retro, Metal Arms: Glitch in the Machine and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory can be downloaded from the Oz selection of Xbox Originals.

Metal Arms: Glitch in the Machine
Blast your way to victory in Metal Arms as Glitch, the gun-slinging, half-ton menacing bot of Droid City. Found as scrap metal, but transformed into destructive machinery, Glitch is determined to free his people from the evil clutches of General Corrosive and his maniacal army of Mil bots. Unleash a world of pain and salvage the robot race as you annihilate the General’s sinister plan to dominate the world!
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
The next instalment of the critically acclaimed stealth-action franchise, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory sends Sam Fisher on a perilous mission to stop a cyberterrorist plot that threatens worldwide war. Also included is the all-new cooperative multiplayer mode as well as the fan-favourite Spies versus Mercenaries mode that was introduced in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow.
