I'm a bit annoyed that one of the summer of arcade games is being wasted on what will most likely be a rubbish Kinect game.

GodGinrai4773d ago

agreed. especially when radiant silvergun, guardian heroes or street fighter 3 would have been better inclusions. lookin forward to insanely twisted shadow planet, bastion and from dust. the new toy soldiers looks ok but id need to finish the first one before i consider cold war. that kinect ninja slicing game looks lame!

TheStonedSheep4773d ago

I hope so, the summer looks as dry as ever.

Lavalamp4773d ago

I don't get why they're refraining from letting us know what the dates will be. I mean, wouldn't it help to better inform the consumer so they can plan out which to purchase ahead of time and prepare their Microsoft Points balance? Or do they try to focus on those people who buy off impulse and whim?

"Or do they try to focus on those people who buy off impulse and whim?"

I think they use the weekly sales for that. MS have bagged my impulse buying habits with those on a few occasions.last four weeks have been shitty.why do people still buys cod maps? and last week it was all rock band stuff..jeez! if your listening MS; i dont want COD DLC or halo....or rock band...gimme an SNK sale already!

You forgot to add "thank God" at the end of the headline.

tomr29922592d ago

Indeed... Praise the Lord!

V0MIT_M0NSTER2592d ago

So glad that they won't mess with Banjo anymore.

-Foxtrot2590d ago

So you wouldn't want a proper Banjo-Threeie, Jade Empire or Kameo 2...really?

AZRoboto2590d ago

Or Crimson Skies. That was the shiz

FallenAngel19842591d ago

It's a shame we can't get another Banjo-Kazooie game

-Foxtrot2590d ago

Literally one that's called Banjo-Threeie and they start the game with Kazooie waking up in distress telling Banjo of a hardly nightmare while recapping Nuts and Bolts.

PhoenixUp2591d ago

Microsoft never could maintain a longrunning decent 3D platformers series of their own

AZRoboto2590d ago

I don't think "longrunning" is really necessary... Isn't Blinx the only one that got a sequel?

darthv722591d ago

Blinx needs to return if at least to show up Bubsy.

ninsigma2590d ago

Not sure if it was Xbox only back in the day but I'd love a current gen jet set radio!

Paytaa2590d ago

Jet Set Radio Future was only on Xbox. Fantastic game. Even better than Jet Set Radio for the Dreamcast in my opinion. Such a good soundtrack too
