Xbox Live Arcade Explosion Next Week!!
Microsoft promised another great summer for XBLA games and they're delivering on that front already this week with 1942: Joint Strike (review will be up during the weekend), N+ DLC (messed with that a bit - its easier as adveristied), Go Go Break Steady (whatever that's called and I didn't buy it), and the Puzzle Quest DLC (just finished that up and its more Puzzle Quest which got me hooked for the day).
Next week is going to be even better with Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 already confirmed for a Wednesday release on XBLA. The other big game is possibly also the long awaited Bionic Commando Rearmed too, even though not yet confirmed for now. The last time I went crazy for a double whooper of XBLA games was when Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Streets of Rage 2 out on the same day, these two would top that.
With those two and Soul Calibur IV, I'm set for a while...
I'm going back to Paradise City (aka Burnout Paradise) tomorrow to check out the new update for a bit and skipping the new Guitar Hero III DLC. In addition, Ninja Gaiden II's Mission Mode DLC will be out on Friday.
Plus, I'm officially going to Comic-Con on Sunday = Yay!!! - At least it won't be as crowded hopefully.
UPDATE - So no Bionic Commando Rearmed next week and the Burnout update was delayed again (WTH??) Geo Wars 2 is good enough anyway for a single release.
