The forthcoming Microsoft Windows 8 store will feature some titles familiar to fans of the Xbox Live Arcade, according to reports. Among them will be popular titles like Ms Splosion Man and Angry Birds.
Age of Booty was developed by Certain Affinity. It was released October 15, 2008, and retails for 400 MSP.
Every once in a long while, a game comes from out of nowhere and surprises with such a vengeance that folks who play it can’t help but recommend the game to everyone they know. They play the game incessantly, altering strategic calculations, building a list of friends to play with, trading grudge matches against rivals and friendly competitions with friends. They marvel at how damn good that game is.
Age of Booty is one of these games. Sitting on the dusting e-shelves of the XBLA library, Age of Booty is not a title that most players would stumble upon and think “I bet this is a great game.” The graphics are rudimentary by today’s standards, the theme seems a bit cartoonish, and for those who have the patience or curiosity to test the demo and who try anything beyond the single player campaign, they may quickly find themselves sailing into battle without any bearings, and end up switching to a different game.

TIC: Part 1 was developed by Red Candy Games. It was released on June 21, 2011 for 240 Microsoft Points. A copy of the game was provided by the developer for review purposes.
TIC: part 1 is an stunning example of what the Xbox Live Indie Marketplace was made for. This simple, beautiful game is amazing from one end of the spectrum to the other. It’s got bright vivid colors, a simple story line, a unique art style and most of all it’s tons of fun. You control TIC, a robot who needs to save the world from oil stealing aliens. To do so, you must fly, collect and drill your way through the stages.
The Haunted: Hells Reach is a game that is bloody and a flesh-ripping delight, so it has to be an Xbox 360 title… right? Well, unfortunately not yet. Powered by Unreal Engine 3, this fast paced horror-action third person shooter is only for PC at the moment. But, according to a member of the developing team, Hells Reach could see life on XBLA if they find a publisher.
