A ton of (good) XBLA games are going on sale next week

In my time spent here covering interesting and sometimes not-so-interesting gaming news, one topic keeps coming back to haunt me: Xbox LIVE Arcade. I post about the service quite frequently, and many times that includes weekly deals not entirely worthy of your attention.

Next week is going to be insane in terms of sales, though; like nothing we’ve really seen before. 24 XBLA titles — many of which come highly recommended — will be between 33 and 53 percent off. Since I own the vast majority of them already (I need medical help), I would know.

Shadow Complex (560 Microsoft Points), Trials HD (560 MSP), Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (560 MSP), TMNT: Turtles in Time HD (400 MSP), and ‘Splosion Man (400 MSP) will be on sale under the “Deal of the Week” banner. The rest, viewable after the break, are just an added bonus.
