Getting Shadow Complex and Castlevania. I bought Worms last week, but that announcer is so obnoxious. is there anyway to turn it off, or am I just going to have to turn the sound off completely and listen to something else?

Contra reviews I'd rather have the NES version personally.


I agree. The arcade version is a bit floaty and for most people, lacks the nostalgia of the NES port. Odd that the technically inferior version is more playable but there it is.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I thought I read somewhere where Braid was dropping to 400 points. Did anyone else see this somewhere, or is my brain just hoping for thins that won't happen?

Dunno man, if Braid drops to 400, thats an insta-buy for me. Though i seriously doubt it =/. I pray it to be true though

The internet has speculated 400. There's some red text to explain

I don't understand what I'm doing wrong I want to buy shadow complex but it's showing up as 1200 pts when does this go live?

Got Shadow Complex and Splosion Man.

Tried the Trials HD trial and wasn't really feeling it. Vehicles in general have never been my thing, and I don't like the side camera angle.

Got Shadow Complex and Trials HD
Already have splosion man - great game.

What about the deals on the 16th? Thinking about getting mtg planeswalkers or whatever, anything else worth while?

Ugh, completely slipped my mind these deals are Gold only. Shadow Complex seemed like an absolute steal for that price.

New trailer for the Summer of Arcade titles. They all are looking pretty good. If they have a promo similar to last year I will probably end up getting all of them.

Man O_O, that camera angle on Castlevania is gonna be hard to get used to. (I pray it isnt THAT zoomed out, or its gonna take alot of squinting to play some of those huge bosses)

Gonna be an epic summer though, only game i dont have much interest in is Limbo. Gonna insta-buy Castlevania and Monday Night Combat

It's hard to get excited about this years summer of arcade lineup. Castlevania interests me, but it looks pretty terrible. I hope that's just poor video quality...

I bought Splosion Man and glad I did. That game is crazy fun. :)

I then went to buy Alien Hominid and to my surprise it said I had already bought the game which I never recall doing because I found the game too difficult but since it said I had purchased it I downloaded the game. I can't figure out how I was gifted a free game. :-?

I look forward to Limbo. I agree Castlevania's view is way too far back; That could be a deal breaker for me. Tomb Raider looks like it would be fun for the multiplayer. The other two games I could care less about.

I thought zooming in castlevania was an optional thing. Not sure if it's as you explored you could go out or just from the start. It's co-op and features an almost roguelike experience. You have a time limit to find and kill the boss, fail by either dieing or running out of time, and you have to restart it. It seems like there isn't experience or levels but you do gain money/items and that stuff all stays between replaying the level(not sure if it's persistent though).

I thought I read this on ign, so check their site for a hands on preview.

That's probably me to a tee... Limbo? Yes. Castlevania? If the view is optional.

Not sure about Tomb Raider. I do not like what SE has done to such a historic franchise/character within there first year of owning the rights so I sort of hate to support it. At the same time supporting it will probably do the franchise more good than not. (and they talk of a full retail game too and not just this XBLA game.)

Hydro Thunder; loved the DC version. If the demo is solid and the price is right I'll bite.

Monday Night Combat; Likely the same as HT...

So, if the pricing is right, the demos play well, and MS puts on a good promotion I could see myself buying all of them during the summer.
