This week on Xbox Live Arcade, players get a little real-time strategy in the Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander's Challenge and a bit of retro arcade goodness with Bubble Bobble NEO.

The Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander's Challenge is a series of fifty new challenges set in the Red Alert 3 universe. Originally released as downloadable content for the PC version of the game, the Xbox 360 release is a standalone title, featuring 2-player co-op in both online and offline modes, plus a heaping helping of Ric Flair.

Bubble Bobble NEO features all 100 levels from the original Bubble Bobble game recreated in HD, with offline co-op and an online versus mode bringing the bubble-blowing action to an all-new level.

Both games drop this Wednesday for 800 Microsoft points apiece.

Bleh. Couldn't Taito have remade the vastly superior Bubble Symphony instead? I appreciate the effort here, but the franchise has better options, and even then this is a bit much to ask for 800 points.

Guess nothing for me this week, though I might finally squash that Invincible Tiger bug that's been gnawing at my wallet for the past couple of weeks.
