In a time where sequels are prevalent (and mostly successful), Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade looks to have it’s own follow-up to it’s fruitful Summer of Arcade. The original “Summer of Arcade”  saw the release of stellar games such as Braid, Castle Crashers and Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 – all of which were critically lauded, financially auspicious and quite frankly, awesome.

Major Nelson has detailed 7 anticipated games that will be released over a six week period. The first game to be released as part of this new campaign promotion will be Hasbro Family Game Night.

Hit the jump for the the remaining six games, one of which may or may not be the hugely anticipated side-scrolling brawler about a guy who cleans dishes for a living.

The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai
Flock
Lode Runner
Outrun Online Arcade
Puzzle Quest: Galactrix
UNO Rush

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.

  • Oooooooooooooooo! Lode Runner… now that brings back memories. Will definitely get that

  • Dishwasher! Finally!

    From all the CC-only demos I’ve played, few 2D brawlers are as robust and mechanically deep as this game, I’m really looking forward to it 🙂
