In addition to the extremely violent, cute animal cartoon game, Happy Tree Friends False Alarm, which I reported on last week, Xbox Live Arcade will also be getting Ticket to Ride. Ticket to Ride puts you in charge of a train route across the country, where you get to “claim your tracks and complete your tickets”… fun. Both games will cost you 800 Microsoft points and will be available on Wednesday as usual.

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 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 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.

Wow, I actually remember buying starter packs for this game when I was in high school about 10 years ago. Yeah, I was a nerd, but I really loved that game. My cards are probably worth a fortune by now too, considering how much they were worth then. Anyway, if you are a fan of the game, you’ll soon be able to enjoy it on your Xbox 360 as well as your computer.
Wizards of the Coast has announced that the very popular game will be developed by AStainless Games, Ltd. who will be providing the XBLA version and Mind Control Software, who will be developing the Mac version. The two together will work together on the creation of the Windows version.
