This summer of arcade has been really disappointing...

Imo Bastion has been the only decent one. From Dust was okay, but I couldn't get into it. ITSP might be good if there weren't flash games that are ten times better. The only game I actually give a damn about is Toy Soldiers because the first one was great.

Compared to last year's and the year before it, this SOA sucks.

Yeah, first SoA I'm not buying any of these games and will wait for them to go on sale instead.

The $15 price point is a joke.

I completely agree; I'd have paid more for Bastion alone.

The only one I picked up was Bastion. Totally worth my 15 bucks. I'm kinda poor right now so I won't be picking up any of the other anytime soon.

I want to know more about these Metroidvania-style flash games.

im enjoying shadow planet and from dust, i might buy toy soldiers but im honestly sick of the WW2 nazi crap i was hoping toy soldier was going to go the direction of b-movie sci-fi.

It's okay. Bastion is great, From Dust was disappointing and the only other one I care about is Toy Soldiers, which most certainly will be great.

Like many others, I'm kind of upset about Fruit Ninja Kinect. It's fine that they have a Kinect arcade game, but they really ruin the appeal of the deal they're offering by including a game that the majority of Xbox owners can't even play.

I will have to agree with SquallWindBlade; SoA has been outstanding so far. Bastion and From Dust are fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting into ITSP; I've just barely started it. I'm sure I will enjoy Fruit Ninja with my wife and children. Toy Soldiers should be good as well. This will likely be the first year I have purchased all five games.
