Microsoft Lays Out Releases For "Days of Arcade"

UNO Rush, The Dishwasher, and others get an Xbox Live Arcade release window with an upcoming promotion.

Pretty sneaky, Mr. Potato Head.
Microsoft has announced a batch of upcoming Xbox Live Arcade games that will comprise the "Days of Arcade" promotion. Things will kick off on March 18th with the release of Hasbro Family Game Night and continue for the following five Wednesdays. There will be seven games in all, so one week will see two releases. And here's the list of games:


Flock has been said to have an April 8 release date, but that date seems to still be unconfirmed. Personally, I'm hoping that UNO Rush is among the first out... which probably means it will be one of the last.

The Dishwasher!  YES!

Hasbro Family Game Night is the biggest waste of money out there. It is seven different games at 800 MS points each ($10). Compare that to the fact you get all seven for $40 on the Wii version. EA are bastards.

I saw this earlier, and all I can say is, Dishwasher and Flock FTW!!

Nothing as noteworthy like last years big arcade event. I really don't know if they can ever beat that, Braid, Castle Crashers, Geometry Wars, and other great games all in a row. Puzzle Quest is the only one that piques my interest, but I'm disappointed there aren't any cool experimental, progressive style games.

Flock looks pretty funny. I'm pro-sheep.

Is anyone else foaming at the mouth for Uno Rush?

Posted by CarolynP

Sweet! I'm ready to get my Outrun Online Arcading on, son!

Posted by Galrick

Looks interesting. Puzzle Quest is definitely my favorite on that list.

::Sigh:: Yet countless hours of my life spent shuffling colored gems around. My wife is going to kill me... :)

They should've just named Uno Rush "dos"

I enjoyed the time I spent with Dishwasher last year.  We'll see how the full release stacks up.

Finally, Dishwasher and Uno Rush. I've been waiting for those.

Arcade games aren't that great. Don't understand why everyone is excited about the dishwasher -_-. Although, the Watchmen: The End is Nigh wasn't that bad of a demo.

Posted by FalcomAdol

Wow, five of those are titles that I'm really anticipating. Need more money.

Posted by Karmum

Can't wait for the Dishwasher to be released, I loved the demo that came out several months ago.

Posted by MeatSim

I really wanna play the Dishwasher.

It's going to be awhile, but assuming I have my 360 back by then, I could totally jump on some Galactrix and Uno rush.

Posted by Gearhead

Uno Rush for sure. I think that the Puzzle Quest Galaxtrix has been a huge disappointment, so that will be a skip.

Posted by John

Hell yes uno rush!

So many good games on the XBLA, the cheap, convenient way to get your game on in economic depression times.

MS has always been thinking of your best interests at heart. It's the caring company.

'Bout time for Uno.

Posted by MasterOfPenguins_Zell

Oo, Flock!

Posted by TomA

I want to wash the dishes! And also,Puzzle Quest Galactrix already came out on Steam so haha!

Posted by GreggD

I really hope Galactrix is one of the first. I can't wait for that.

Posted by DaoJones

Some great games, but I wish they would space it out.  Last year, bought tons of games in a short period (Bionic Commando, Braid, etc) and then a few months of "meh" titles.  If I wasn't so impatient, I guess this wouldn't be a problem.  :)

Posted by AndrewGaspar

Not gonna lie, the PSN Spring whatever it's called is a little more appealing.

Posted by ferrarimanf355

I can't wait to own you fools in OutRun...

Posted by KingOfIceland

Dishwasher, Flock and Galactrix will be mine!

Posted by Kyle

Hell. Yes.

The only ones I don't care about are Lode Runner and Outrun....... clearly I am not a fan of running of any kind.

Posted by Red

The Dishwasher, Flock and Puzzle Quest are all interesting; I'm just not sure if I'll buy any.

Posted by Media_Master

Nah

Posted by darkjester74

Dishwasher, Galactrix, and Uno Rush are all must buys for me.  With the exception of the Hasbro game, the rest are fairly exciting too and I will need to check them out.

Looks good!

DISHWASHER AND GALACTRIX!!!  WOOT!!!

Posted by Karmum

Give me JellyCar as well and I will be set. Perhaps some achievements and some kind of online function? Make it happen, damnit.
