Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday

Two more games this Wednesday for all you Xbox Live Arcade fans. Both games can be picked up for 800 Microsoft points.

Sea Life Safari
Sea Life Safari places you in the wonderful world of the deep sea, where you get to take pictures of the colorful life in the water. Aspiring photographers may want to pick this up. YOUNG aspiring photographers that is.

Elements of Destruction
Elements of Destruction gives you the powers of creating disastors, using elements such as tornadoes, lightning, and earthquakes. Basically, you were fired, created a machine that lets you control nature, and took revenge on the company who fired you. This sounds like a fun one.
