This week on Arcade: Voodoo Dice


Look for Voodoo Dice this Wednesday on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 points.


Edit: I have just learned that DOOM 2 will be released this Wednesday as well.

    Just one game this week? Guess I will check out them demo, doesnt look to exciting though.

  • Ultima22

    Hmmm… On the fence about this one.

  • Kn0kkelmann

    What about Doom II for XBLA? On the Nippon Marketplce you can see it ( and sadly canĀ“t even download the demo anymore.. :( ) so it HAVE to be out this Wed. It reminds me on MK3. ;) Any words on that, Major?

  • The Grim Heaper

    Damn! >_< I misread that as Voodoo Vince and got really excited.. .then saw Voodoo Dice and now I’m no longer excited. ):

  • Rdeal

    Grim i did exactly the same


    Hmmm, the word dice confused with the name Vince. I’m going to guess you guys aren’t rocket scientists.

    Theres our friendly little troll, I was wondering where you’ve been.

  • Salmonbottle

    Man, I can’t wait for Summer of Arcade.

  • Exu

    Could have sworn DooM II was coming this week, especially since the Japs have/had it.
    Saying that with a trifecta of games on DotW this week I can understand not releasing something people actually want.

  • Major Nelson

    I just got confirmation of Doom 2

  • AnEternalEnigma

    Doom 2 better be 400MS just like the original Doom was.

    @ carnage

    You’re such an ass, NOT helpful

  • Rokntek

    Gee, something different for a console that’s flooded with FPSs and other “chock-full-of-action” games? :)

    The 360 / XBLA need more titles that require strategy / puzzle solving skills, so this is a welcome addition…

    Hooray doom 2! I just asked about it on the show comments.

    Instant gratification.

    Wasn’t Doom 800 points when released? As its now an Arcade Hit at 400 points?
    Ben 10: Rise of the Hex is also out this week if the UK xbox live editor Dan Maher is correct

    All releases 800 points this week

    When does the Summer of Arcade start? There are some games I’ve been looking to go on sale again (Shadow Complex, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and Trials HD) but I keep missing the deals. Hope some good stuff is reduced in price, not crap I have no interest in.


    They’re the one’s who said it. Do I just sit here and let your dumb comments slide. If I don’t call you guys out, you’ll probably go thru life looking stupid and I just won’t have that because I care.

  • SilentHunter382

    Yes For Doom II.
    Nearly bought Lazy Raiders this week but thankfully they didn’t get around to reduce the price yet.

  • D Fineout

    Carnage, “thru” looks pretty stupid buddy <3

  • CryptoElite

    I hope Doom 2 has widescreen support this time around. I think I’d buy it anyways :X

  • WinterSnowblind

    @AnEternalEnigma: Doom 1 was 800 when it first went up, it was lowered when they announced this one was coming, which ended up taking longer than expected. Plus this one has entirely new episodes and some really neat avatar awards. Definitely worth the price :)

  • LealaNiGHTS

    Doom II, SWEET!

  • ShaggyB

    Doom 2 price?

    and why no post on the deal of the week games

  • AshleyBazSivorn

    Doom II About F*cking Time :-D

  • DJ Deathstar

    Doom 2 is 800 points look at the link in my last post

  • EvilTrovis

    Woot! Doom II! Been waiting for that for so long! With the new episode and avatar awards, it’s going to be sweet! Running out to buy Microsoft Points tonight.

  • Kroesis

    Successful Troll was successful.

    Anyway, I played Doom II a lot all those years ago, to the point that I eventually got bored of it. So while nostalgia is encouraging me to buy it, I know that it won’t last and I’ll get bored a lot quicker this time around. Mind you, I’ll try the demo a try anyway, it might not be bad as as all that.

  • The Bill Payer

    Nice to finally see Doom 2 on the Arcade, a definite purchase for me.

  • NEW P4TH

    Finally, Doom 2 gets official release date for Xbox Live Arcade. I cant wait to play it again. I just hope the price is reasonable. I ain’t going to fork over 1200 points for it if thats the price. 400 would be the BEST price for the game, but I think I might still buy it if it ends up being 800 points.

  • Exu

    Sweet, will be nabbing DooM II then. Voodoo Dice looks… uninteresting.

  • Jack Scallion

    Yippiehh! Doom II… oh… wait…
    Im from Germany… f*ck! No Doom for us, of course. :(

  • mccalejk

    w00t, finally Doom 2.


    @Major Nelson, XBLA has 300 games, now, why wasn’t there any celebration about this fact! or am I the only person in the world that noticed!!


    @MAJOR, not only didn’t you advertise the fact of 300+ games, you missed out on BEN 10

  • BrooksterMax

    Doom 2 very welcome excellent news, its been too many years!

  • chiruno99

    I’ve already played and completed Doom 2, back in 1999 as well.

  • RealRuler
