Summer of Arcade 2013: the games, their trailers and release

Postby Plamsa wing » 08 Jul 2013, 18:35

Really hoping Turtles will be good, could do with a good TMNT action-adventure/beat 'em up, plus it's got 4 player co-op if anyone is game for some OXM Turtle antics.

That Brothers has some promise as well, hoping that'll be good too.

What's the date for Ascend: Hand of Kul by the by? Think beta has started now, so it can't be far off.

I'm terrified of writing about this one, following certain unfortunate nerd-failures of the "new character April O'Neil" variety.


Witty remark. :wink:

Can't say any of these grab my interest.

I remember all the important ones. Leonardo. Donatello. Michael. Ralph. The rat guy. April O'Neil's just the Turtle PR rep at the end of the day, and the most important rule of PR is never to become the story.

There's no formal date for Ascend, but it can't be far off if they're giving away DLC in August. Looking forward to seeing what they've made of it.

Ha, Ralph. If it had been anyone else I would have assumed you were joking.

Do you know if Kerrang, Rocksolid and UmmBop are in the game?

I'd deny it but then you could truthfully call me a liar-face.
