Starts in August
This year’s Summer of Arcade promotion for Xbox Live Arcade is, from the looks of it, weaker than in prior years. Beginning August 7, the featured games are: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Flashback, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and Charlie Murder.
None of these look bad — just not the kind of titles that scream “Buy me immediately!” which is what we mostly got during the first few years of Summer of Arcade. The Xbox 360 is winding down, so it’s not like I wasn’t expecting this. Hoping a few of these will surprise me.
