One of Microsoft's many XBLA evangelists was live on E3 Live on Gamespot (thanks to being on the road with glitchy internet, I missed his name) talking up the "best content lineup" on XBLA ever and told the world that all these games would be out "by the end of the summer." And more specifically he said, "in the next two months."
If all goes as planned I'll likely be at least 4000 MSP poorer in two months time (though no price points have been announced).
After the break I'll hit on a couple of points that were covered about each of those games.
Great news for Braid fans everywhere! Further signs of a Braid release sometime in the coming months as Braid has now made it onto PartnerNet. Don't get too excited as some games are on their months... YEARS... before their releases (Ikaruga).
The Australian ratings group, OFLC, has updated their site with a few new Xbox Live Arcade entires. The interesting deal is that with this update they confirmed everyone suspicions that Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 will be coming soon to Xbox Live Arcade. The last time we brought up the rumor for this game was for the 100th game release, but it looks like we were off by a few months. No fears as it will be coming soon now!
Braid, Go Go Break Steady and Vigilante 8 arcade have also been placed on the OFLC.
