XBLA Summer of Arcade Games, Dates Confirmed

Posted on June 19, 2012 AT 12:50pm

It’s almost time once again for the start of the Summer of Arcade, and Microsoft today confirmed dates and prices for the new Xbox Live Arcade games that’ll be heating up your summer.

As per usual, you’ll get a discount if you purchase multiple games from the Summer of Arcade promotion. This year, the deal is 400 MS Points back for buying any three of the following titles.

  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – July 18th (1200 MS Points)
  • Wreckateer – July 25th (800 MS Points
  • Deadlight – Aug 1st (1200 MS Points)
  • Hybrid – Aug 8 (1200 MS Points)
  • Dust: An Elysian Tail – Aug 15th (1200 MS Points)

For me personally, Deadlight and Dust are definite purchases. I was a big Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fan back in the day, but my question now is if my love for the game will still be there, or if it’ll only be a case of nostalgia.
