  • BlindFire2112

    the toy soldiers looks interesting….any information of what it is anywhere

  • tahoedude101
  • Exu

    Worms 2 DLC costing the same as the game has on several occasions? You’re joking, right? Might as well have made a third XBLA Worms by now.
    Everything else seems sound.

  • Etherphoria

    That worms looks pretty decent, definitely pick it up

  • SalarymanDaishi

    Yay! Only a week until the Monkey Island 2 remake with an awesome price point to boot! Pure brilliance!

  • Antarael Dulac

    I’ll wait this time for MI 2 last time i bought MI 1 just one week before the deal…=P
    Also..i can play the original on scummvm any time =)

  • Quicksilver4648

    I have seen a few videos of Blacklight: Tango Down and it could be good. The $15 price seems very fair for what you get.

    Side note: Hulu Plus has been announced! Hulu is coming to Xbox:

  • chiruno99

    I’ll get Monkey Island 2 as soon as I finish the first one, or it goes on discount.
    Everything else, pbbbbbbbbt.

  • Culebra 64

    Monkey Island 2, I’m glad to see those games get a makeover.

    I’ll be grabbing that without a doubt.

  • Sogeman

    Monkey Island YAY. Keep the rest

  • JoeCool314

    Can’t wait for the Toy Soldiers DLC!! What a great game!!

  • Kroesis

    Finally! Monkey Island 2! Been waiting for it for ages now! Day 1 purchase! Will try Blacklight as well, it may look rough but hopefully they’ve got the decent MP gameplay they were going for!

  • Vega DD

    what’s happened to Quake Live Arena? is this game coming out?

  • metallicorphan

    2100 points card for Monkey island 2 and Blacklight

  • metallicorphan

  • Mcmax3000

    “I am working on getting the full list of Music content that will be going on sale.”

    Music content?

  • EyeR8

    Sweet, looking forward to Monkey Island 2.. and although Major hasn’t mentioned it, the release date for Puzzle Quest 2 is supposed to be tomorrow (June 30th), can’t wait for that one.

    Major Nelson, on Wednesday the DLC for Phantasy Star Universe called “Ambitions of the Illunmines” is getting reduced in price from 800MSP to FREE. Can you please add this to your topic or create one about it. Here is the information as posted by the GM Edward on the official Phantasy Star Universe boards.

    “Attention, GUARDIANS!

    I’d like to be the first to let you know about a special announcement – starting on Wednesday, June 30th, the Ambition of the Illuminus will be a FREE download over Xbox Live !

    No voucher code is needed, and no rebate will be required. Anyone who needs it will simply be able to download it for free (although it will still require the original game to play). This is a thank-you to our loyal players for their years of support, and it also helps us to advance PSU into the future. Consider it the first step in lining up much more for Phantasy Star Universe down the line!

    Stay tuned – we have lots more news to come, and good things just around the corner!”

    @ONESTAR v2

    how popular is Phantasy Star Universe?…i was a final fantasy 11 player for two years on the 360 and loved it,and now MS aren’t bringing any more MMOs to the 360 there has been a hole for MMOs i want to fill

  • ZaneXXX
  • Exu

    Good gesture making the PSU expansion free (since it’s now required to play) but with membership still at £6.99 a month I’m likely not going to play it.

    SEGA, make PSO for XBLA already. And none of that Hunters License crap.

  • Anonymous

    ANCIENTS OF OOGA is available on the marketplace un fortunately it does appear in the new arrivals section -> you’re losing sales
    anyway GREAT GAME with avatar awards and free gamerpic

  • ONESTAR v2


    The population is pretty decent for a console MMO, at non peak times right now there are about 1200 people on. According to the GMs Sega is working with MS to get the game put on “games on demand” since its pretty tough to find in stores. The game is very much worth picking up if you can find it. If you end up getting it friend request me and I can help you get started lol.

  • chiruno99

    Ebay have many copies people don’t use anymore.

  • iFE4RFUL

    Finally. July 7th, can’t wait for Blacklight: Tango Down.

  • Disco Penguins

    Hey, Major. When is Summer of Arcade kicking in? And will there be a deal for getting all the games like there has been? REALLY looking forward to new Castlevania and Monday Night Combat.

  • I DLord I

    I am a big fan of Worms 2 on xbla, but 400 points for a add-on? I mean, it is a decent add-on, but the full game itself has been on sale for 400 points. That is (almost) as bad as the MW2 map packs.

  • Lucifonz

    You state Blacklight is hitting on July 7th but the actual press release has no mention of it? Whats going on? Is it delayed?

  • iFE4RFUL


    MajorNelson, would of mentioned a delay for Blacklight: Tango Down. Looks like its still going to be released on July 7th in XBLA. It’ll be kick ass!
