Microsoft's has delayed Xbox Live Destination Arcade to coincide with the release of Xbox Live Summer of Arcade which starts coming out next week. I guess I can live with this as its just a change of appearance. But sometimes its nice to have something to look forward too. Its not much of a big release week so now its just a tad bit more boring. From what I here it will make looking for games, add-ons, and arcade games much easier, so that is definitely something to look forward too. As well as make the interface a little more sleeker and refined.
Destination Arcade will be kicking off with the release of Limbo, which looks pretty creepy and has me very excited! Five titles will be released in all on Xbox Live. Hydro Thunder Hurricane on July 28Th, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair on August 4Th, Monday Night Combat on August 11Th, and finally Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light on August 18Th.
Personally I am most excited about Castlevania! I grew up on Castlevania games on the NES and haven't gotten enough of them yet. Its been years since the awesomeness of Symphony of the Night, not including portable DS versions. Over all they all look like a lot of fun and a change of pace over this ridiculous hot summer!
Also if your feeling like purchasing all of five games over this summer you will receive 1200 Microsoft points back, 400 Microsoft points if only purchase three of them. Getting back points is always a good thing. Now the question is whether to wait for them to go on sale later, which will happen like last years, or purchase them now at 1200 points a pop. Oh decisions.
