Trials HD will arrive on 12th August - it's a m0t0rb1k3 racer with over 50 tracks and two modes. You can customise your character, create your own tracks and share them online.

And finally, Shadow Complex will be available from 19th August. It's the XBLA title Epic showed off at E3 - a side-scrolling adventure game with more than 10 hours of gameplay on offer.
