Coming to Arcade next week

Monday is Memorial Day, which is a National Holiday for the U.S. (and the unofficial start of Summer) so I am able to break tradition and share with you a little early what next weeks Arcade titles will be. Wallace & Gromit from Telltale Games and Yosumin Live from Square Enix will both be available Wednesday, May 27th for 800 points each.  We’ll also see Boggle get added to Hasbro Family Game Night for 800 points.

 

Edit: Fright of the Bumblebees is the W&G title being released.

    Strange how ‘summer’ is about to begin and Primetime was supposed to be out in ‘spring’….seems to have gone unnoticed!

    Wow, another 2 crappy games coming out. At least Blazing Birds was a little bit original this week.
    Laggy guide fix…when?
    1 vs 100.. when?

    Enjoy your holiday Major, you`ve done so much for us as our voice in the marketing department. *ironic*

    Are these just available to the USA people? Just wondering after your Black-whatever-day release.

    Great news on Wallace and Grommit! Gotta love TellTale and their revival of the old school graphic adventures. Hopefully this will help bring Sam and Max closer to release, MS really needs to streamline the XBLA process. The game’s been on the PC for a few years, on the Wii for a year… and I’m still waiting on MS to let me buy that version too! If I wasn’t such a fan (with the desire to buy them all) I would’ve long since given up on the 360. Get this poppy out. Sam and Max season 3 will be out by the time you guys get around to releasing Season 1!

    But for now I’ll be playing W&G on Wednesday, and staring at my PC version of the second episode while I wait months for that to release…

    finally, Boggle!
    And nice to see Yosumin! The game was rather fun on the DS, can’t wait to see the XBLA version.
    And to top it all off: Wallace & Gromit!
    Sounds like another fun week!

    Have you heard of “Having issues”? Would you want them to release a major buggy version that’ll make you want to cower in the corner and cry for hours or let them test it, fix the majority of all the kinks and release a fun enjoyable experience? I’ll take the later, but five years should be more than sufficient given the right tools (dedicated servers for each quadrant).

    jesus, people. so many of you come on here every day and whine and complain about things not even relative to the post. yes, microsoft gets it: you think that the guide is laggy. you think that the arcade games are too expensive.

    troll somewhere else, or try to find a balance between the positive and the negative.

    Anyone know any new news on the Magic: The Gathering game for live, or if there will be a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 demo released soon? I was expecting one of these two to make a showing for the holiday weekend.

    @ Warrengoonline, No i havent heard about “having issues”. Has there been a press release of something to confirm that Primetime has been further delayed? I realise it was delayed from NXE, but it was supposed to be out in Spring. Half a year has gone by since NXE was released and still no primetime? Takes em 6 months to fix something that shoulda been out with NXE? How bad are these programmers?

    Not sure, but ANYTHING, EVEYTHING that has to do with the web, synchronizing more than 15 players across the globe is no weekend feat. I only said that as when I watched the previous E3 demo , I could see an ‘issue’. Also after watching the current vids, I happened to email one of the beta testers out of curiosity and he said “cool but slow” – but then I noticed he was in the U.S. and not Canadian. So, I can wait. Even though I do not like the game, have you tried Wits and Wagers? It’s similar in simple play mechanics. I’d recommend trying it out, although the trial is lame. If you want multiplayer fun, it is indeed that. I think it’ll curb your 1 vs 100 appetite a little.

    Overpriced? I’m just glad that they finally went back to 800 point games and even released a 400 point game this week. And I really like that they started releasing two games a week.

    It’s too expensive! Microsoft and the developers should give everything away for free!! The games stink before they even come out!!! I’m being sarcastic, when will you whiners ever stop.
