I tend to focus on my backlog over the summer break. Few new games are worth the attention, and titles that do grab my eye are few and far between. I am NOT playing Madagascar 3: The Video Game. You can't make me.
That doesn't stop Xbox Live and Xbox Live Arcade from trying its best to distract me with the annual Summer of Arcade downloadable lineup. Major Nelson has revealed the line up on his blog, complete with prices and dates and the typical incentive: this time, buy any three Summer of Arcade titles and get 400 Microsoft Points back. Here's the lineup:
July 18 – Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD – 1200 MSP – $15
July 25 – Wreckateer – 800 MSP – $10
August 1 – Deadlight – 1200 MSP – $15
August 8 – Hybrid – 1200 MSP – $15
August 15 – Dust: An Elysian Tail – 1200 MSP – $15
I can certainly find three games I'd like to play in that list. Which'll you pick up… or down… load?
