Xbox Live starts Summer of Arcade
Inside Xbox has shown that the Summer of Arcade is upon us exclusively on Xbox live. Here is a look at whats to come.
First up is Limbo. This creepy looking game is a side scrolling 2D puzzle game done in all black and white. Promises to be very addicting.
Anyone remember the classic arcade super boat racing game? That right Hydro Thunder is back with sequal and an all new look. Hydro Thunder Hurricane brings back the fast pace racing with single and multiplayer modes.
And if one classic wasn’t enough how about Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Castlevania is brought back dusted off and given new life for a newer audience. But no worries as it promises to still keep the old Castlevania feel you know and love.
Are you ready for some combat?? Monday Night Combat is a 3rd person shooter where you take on enemy teams to win money for upgrades and weapons and it’s a sport! This will also have a multiplayer feature.
Lastly we bring back Lara Croft in a new adventure titled Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. This time she goes after the mirror of smoke and teams up with the mirrors guardian to find it. It will be filled with action, puzzles, and plenty to explore. It has a Diablo or Baulder’s gate look as it will support single and co-op play.
The release dates for these titles are:
Limbo — July 21
Hydro Thunder Hurricane — July 28
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair — August 4
Monday Night Combat — August 11

Now Microsoft is also running a rebate for these games. If you buy 3 or 4 games you will receive a rebate of 400 Microsoft points. If you get all 5 you will get a rebate of 1200 points.
Don’t know about you but I am definitely going to check out a few of these.
