It’s Summer for our northern hemisphere brethren, and that means it’s time once again for Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade. Last year saw the release of some of Xbox Live Arcade’s most prolific titles – Such gems as Braid, Castle Crashers, which are still two of my favourite arcade titles. Those of us stuck in the Southern hemisphere, hugging our heaters and mugs of hot chocolate can take solace in the fact that we’ll at least have some hot, hot arcade action to keep our fingers warm.

Hit the jump to find to what we can expect (In case you missed them all in the header picture) – along with release dates and pricing.
Remember, if you’re short on MS Space Bucks you can visit our local retailers mspoints.co.za and evogames.co.za to stock up.

  • July 22: TMNT: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled – 1200 MS Points
  • July 29: Marvel vs. Capcom 2 – 1200 MS Points
  • August 5: Splosion Man – 800 MS Points
  • August 12: Trials HD – 1200 MS Points
  • August 19: Shadow Complex – 1200 MS Points 

I’m rather excited about…all of those, particularly MvC2 and Shadow Complex. Any game that’s inspired by Super Metroid gets my attention instantly.
While 1200 points may seem a little high for MvC2, if you consider the online play and its current eBay price for a physical copy, it’s pretty much a steal.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
