Microsoft Reveals Summer of Arcade Details
Prepare to be underwhelmed.
Last year was such a fantastic year for the Summer of Arcade. Xbox Live saw the release of Bastion, From Dust, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Fruit Ninja Kinect, and Toy Soldiers: Cold War. It's a hard lineup to beat, and I don't know how hard Microsoft is trying in 2012.
July 18 – Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – 1200MSP/15USD
July 25 – Wreckateer – 800MSP/10USD
August 1 – Deadlight – 1200MSP/15USD
August 8 – Hybrid- 1200MSP/15USD
August 15 – Dust: An Elysian Tail - 1200MSP/15USD
Personally, I'm looking forward to August. Deadlight is the game to keep your eyes on this year. It's a sidescrolling survival horror platformer, probably the best, or maybe only, one I've ever seen. Dark, gritty, terrifying, that spells "summer" for me.
By purchasing three of the titles listed, you'll get 400MSP/5USD back.
