  • イサム オミナエ

    2 overpriced games.
    The sales team didn’t recovered the massive damage at E3.
    Too bad.
    No deal here.

    • http://twitter.com/xbudz Xbudz

      Flashback for $10 is a deal.

    • roozbeh

      Out of the back of my head I think the ultimate game sale was pretty good. the sales team kinda did good on that dont ya think?

  • Vince

    I remember the last TMNT game I bought was absolute garbage.

    • Vonrikke

      Was it tmnt in time reshelled perhaps?

      • Vince

        I don’t remember, but it’s by Ubisoft.

        • Vonrikke

          Ya that’s the one, the one I bought on XBL and then they lost the license for it. No one can buy it anymore. Woe is my multiplayer

  • kingcrusher

    Cannot wait for flashback. I love that game!

  • John Doe

    Sooooo ummm, why not wait to post the announcement of these August games in the beginning of….I dunno…next month?!

    • Lucas Sanches Cestari

      i will buy the splintercell:blacklist, i already have the money to get it =D

      • James Jiao

        I am happy for you… but what does your comment have to do with the guy you replied to?

        • Lucas Sanches Cestari

          hmmm i understood that he want to know the games for the next month…

          • Dylan

            He meant why not announce these 4 games next month.

          • Lucas Sanches Cestari

            oh ok… google translator lied to me again …

  • Vonrikke

    Hey did you guys see xboxonevspsfour dot com? Sony is sodomizing the poo right out of MS

    • http://twitter.com/xbudz Xbudz

      That’s simply because it was posted on NeoGAF.

      • Vonrikke

        That’s not where I saw it posted. Also its an international poll…

        • roozbeh

          And your saying this on a pro-xbox blog? Are you seriously bored. Go play some games.

          • Vonrikke

            Bum sore?

          • roozbeh

            What?

          • Vonrikke

            Also, I was playing games, until Xbox live went down earlier. Harrumph, ms deserves some bad pr for ruining my evening sesh

          • roozbeh

            Offline gaming?

          • Vonrikke

            No thanks, if I wanted to play with myself I wouldn’t need Xbox to do it

          • roozbeh

            That has to be the worse explanation ever. Now though how long was xbl down?

          • roozbeh

            Cant reply to your comment so im replying to this one.
            I just played bl2 on live so I can confirm it is working now.
            Now I dont know how old you are
            But how would you game in the earlier gens. There was no such thing as online gaming before the og xbox so how would you play back then?

          • Vonrikke

            Well firstly, only a kid would think talking about how young some one is, is an insult. Secondly you don’t know what you are talking about, because original Xbox was the first broad band only console. I guess you are too young to know that. And thirdly, I never said I gamed on earlier generations, I was on pc.

          • roozbeh

            When I talked about age it wasnt an insult. What I meant was that if you played the older gens of consoles to Which you answered no. No insults. Plus yeah prior to the og xbox online gaming never really got mainstream.

          • Vonrikke

            Umm, no. What year did ultima online come out again? Then there was Everquest, pretty sure that was before Xbox, and let me think, I was playing unreal tournament plenty of years before Xbox too. Just because you didn’t play it, doesn’t mean it didn’t exist

          • Vonrikke

            Besides which, I never said I have never gamed offline. Back in the day.. Xwing was the bomb, then mechwarrior 2 mercenaries was baad, I could go on. But these days, if I can’t play it with my bro over distance, I have little reason too

          • roozbeh

            Alright I can understand why u like online gaming. But why are bashing xbox? Playstation has terrible online connectivity. Im a former user. If your an online type of guy xbox is really better for you. Playstation has maintenance issues on a weekly basis.

          • roozbeh

            I said mainstream. Not existence.
            It really became mainstream when the xbox came out.
            Consoles didnt have online multiplayer. ultima online was and still is on pc. Remember im talking about consoles.

      • beardyman3218

        It should be called NeoGUFF because its full of it.

        • http://twitter.com/xbudz Xbudz

          agreed

    • Lord Pexer

      How is this even relevant?

  • http://twitter.com/xbudz Xbudz

    I would pre-purchase Flashback right now if I could.

  • Jared

    Dishonored in Canada 1,360 points to buy for the USA 1600MSP

    • Does Not Equal

      Hardly qualifies for the Summer of Arcade.

      • Jared

        you need 4.000msp to buy all of them if you want to get Summer of Arcade.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        lol you always say something sarcastic on every comment. just noticed.

    • Lord Pexer

      Relevant?

  • Tobias

    The Flashback link is broken.

    • Lord Pexer

      You can also access the page by clicking on the picture of Flashback, it also serves as a link to the marketplace page. :)

  • Nitramuse

    Shouldn’t those Turtles be names ‘Adult Mutant Ninja Turtles’ nowadays? Or does that sound too….. wrong?

    • roozbeh

      AMNT. It just sounds too wrong.

  • Roberto Merino

    Meh, by the beginning of the next month i probably will forget about this launches.

  • boe2

    Then don’t, geez. Your 360 will keep working fine. Just like every other console you happen to own, quit making drama where there is none.

  • boe2

    Majornelson, the link to Flashback is broken ;)

    Flashback and Charlie Murder look pretty nice, nice to see an 800 points pricetag on there too.

    • fsdfg dsfds

      HEY DURRP IM A DURPHEAD DURRR

  • Guest

    $0ny PauperStation N4Gtards are trying so hard on this blog, when nobody cares about those poor SOB’s. It’s laughable….

  • Mark Capell-helm

    brothers might be interesting the rest of them pretty meh really and the free souls offer thing whoop ti do only appealing in the slightest if you got that game if not there is no incentive.

    • Jan Václavík

      Just to make sure people remember: the Ascend game is going to be free-to-play.

  • http://golephish.blogspot.com/ Paul Clark

    Flashback remake THANK YOU !

  • Vonrikke

    Look up a n g r y j o e and major nelson. microsoft is so touchy about it you cant even write his name on here. funny funny

    • Does Not Equal

      So what?

  • Kyle

    I thought Far Cry Classic was going to be part of Summer of Arcade?

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    lol ? i remember that show and game on nes. loved both. lol i haven’t heard about that remake.

  • gamer04

    Not a big fan of the new turtles design. Much prefer the new animated series look

  • Seekul

    More like winter of discontent, amirite? :D Nah kidding, interested to see how these titles turn out, especially Flashback.

  • Jason Voorhees

    Why did Duck Tales miss the boat? It’s releasing a whole month later on September 11th on XBLA now, two weeks after SoA ends.

    • Sara Drew

      where did you find a release date?

      • Jason Voorhees

        http://www eurogamer net/articles/2013-07-11-ducktales-remastered-dated-for-august

  • Jared

    Summmer Sales are on on steam now tell everbody

    • Does Not Equal

      That’s not a Microsoft company.

  • http://www.coolmathgamerun2.com/ Cool Math Games

    Entertainment with one day of hard work.

  • http://www.coolmathgamerun2.com/ Cool Math Games

    I am glad I found your video today. I recommend it to everyone.. Thanks for your work!!

  • Bennijin

    Shame about Ducktales being pushed back a month for this. Can’t you just release it in sync with other platforms anyway?

  • Michael

    A soul pack? How generous. Some years from now when Steam has beaten Xbox into the ground, prices and sales will be highlighted as one of the key reasons why.

  • Does Not Equal

    Are you selling something?

    • http://www.barleynhops.com/ Noah A. Bolmer

      He makes a reasonably good point.

  • roozbeh

    arent they refunding?

  • fsdfg dsfds

    This is so weak, Brothers looks pretty good,at least they didnt make us wait for trials EVO and State of decay for this

  • fsdfg dsfds

    State of Decay now available in New Zealand!!

  • http://wwww.minecraftchannel.net/ Minecraft

    information I have been searching for a long time. Thanks so much.
