Deadlight and Dust for me, definitely. I'll try the others and see how they hold up at review but I'll be giving the Kinect game a miss this year.

The thing about having your name at the top of your comment is that you don't need a signature at the bottom.

Just looked up Deadlight, looks pretty badass. Sorta like Limbo meets Shadow Complex

Deadlight and Dust again here, there's also a game that most probably will be released this summer but not part of the summer-of-arcade list:

Spelunky.

google it.

It reminds me of Tony Hawk 2 on ps1, while it was a good game at the time. I do not want to play it again.

Deadlight is an instant purchase. Not sure on Dust, Hybrid and THPS yet.

I'm getting Tony Hawk and then I'll compare Dust with Fez and Rayman 3 HD too see which one I like the most.
Kurt Russell  +   862d ago
Me too, can't wait for a bit of THPS!
ALLWRONG  +   862d ago
Arcade has been kicking some serious ass the past couple years. TH looks fun as hell.

There was some news that MS intended to switch from MSP to acutal currency. Does anybody know what happened to those plans?

It may sound off-topic but every time I'm thinking about buying something in their digital shop, I can't force myselft to as I never know how much it actually costs. And if I try to compare to PS Store, the prices are by 10-20% higher for me.

However, there are plenty of ways to get free MS points. Bing Rewards, XBox Live Rewards, and Microsoft occasionally sends an email with points.
IHateYouFanboys  +   862d ago
They never intended to change to $.

MS points are a worldwide currency, and as such it allows them to do worldwide pricing. If game A is 800ms in the USA it is 800ms in the UK. It then leaves it up to them to decide how much 1ms point costs without having to have different pricing per region. So while 400ms might cost me $6 here in Australia, 400ms in the USA might cost $4, yet the only price tag you'll ever see is 400ms.

Damn I really wanted sonic adventure 2.
stage88  +   862d ago
"Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will launch as a timed-exclusive on Xbox Live with a PSN release due a few weeks later."

And my dislike for MS continues...

Not sure why they'd even bother releasing this on xbox, the d-pad must be horrible to use when pulling off tricks.

That's a lousy lineup. Guess my 360 will continue its hibernation.
coolasj  +   862d ago
Wow. The 3 most locked forward to games in there come out in August. Agh!

Say what you will about Microsoft and the Xbox's lack of exclusives, but Summer of Arcade kicks ass.
