Just letting you guys know that you can download it on an US account and use on your other account. You even unlock avatar award.

By the way games on it seems outdated. Deals of the weeks and new releases.

Edit: You can unlock the Dragon avatar by going on Magic the gathering. Thanks to nnthomas on CAG for this one.

Think Guitar Hero VIP Pass for XBL Arcade. It's just an interface to find Arcade games based on what you like. You recommend stuff, and your friends can see that you recommended it.

Anyway, there's 2 Avatar Awards.

For starting Destination: Arcade, you get "A Cool Hoodie". White hoodie, with "Xbox Live Arcade" logo on it.

The other one is more elusive. For a "Cool Dragon", says "There be dragons lurking in Destination: Arcade", but I have yet to figure out how to unlock it.

The interface itself is pretty nice. Almost no lag for me, and does a pretty good job with it's recommendations.

Edit: Thanks to Khalid (and nnthomas) for the dragon info. I was about to start going through all dragon related games, but now I don't have to.

Just a note: The Dragon award is the best prop ever.

Hey guys just a quick question ?

Could I download it with my 2nd account (US), & then play it on my 1st account (UK) to get the awards ?

Yes, that is what I did.

It starts up grants me my avatar award and even lets me download games (only a demo so far, did not check if it accepts european MS Points, mainly because I only have 15 right now).

Actually, another way to get the Dragon award is to just browse around Destination: Arcade until you get a message saying "There are dragons lurking around!" It'll unlock as soon as you see that.

You download the Dragon Avatar by looking at the box of any fantasy game. Got mine from Altered Beast.

Thanks for the info, that dragon avatar reward is better than most of the ones you actually have to pay for.

I just sorted games by price, and found a game that was free that I somehow never knew about...Totem Ball. :woop:

*Edit* Ok now that I have loaded the game up, I remember I did download this before...The reason I deleted it was because its an Xbox Live Vision Camera game, and without one, you can't play it...sigh

Destination Arcade is definitely replacing the older way of browsing for new arcade games.

I love the Sort by MSP Points filter too.

If you already downloaded it then you get to keep it.

You're thinking of that you can't download it once Summer of Arcade ends. Like Tufty said once downloaded you get to keep it.

It is also one of the two game that is rated one star.

Nice, I had completely forgotten about this. Thanks for the reminder, just got the awards :)

Wonder if they'll do any more awards for it, feels a little odd if it's just a dragon and no other things.


EDIT: Just tried the dragon, haha, it's the dog's. Especially for being free. :D
Replaced my gnome from L4D2 :p

Best award/free prop I've gotten.

I like this. It makes browsing XBLA games so much more convient.

I downloaded this yesterday. I initially had trouble getting a US account activated, so for those experiencing a similar problem I just changed the GB to US in the URL.

From then on it was plain sailing. The problem I was having was that the page kept directing we to the UK xbox page.

Hi there,

if i download this application and then play it on my european account, may my account be ban?

So I can't seem to get the 'cool dragon' prop. I'm not sure if it was just a limited time thing, or if it's that when I bring up the application it says the servers are down. However when I first opened Destination: Arcade it gave me the 'cool hoodie', am I over looking something? I've tried pushing the download button, and tried finding similar games to Magic: The Gathering but neither of those are doing anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have to pass over a "Hot" game. Try using Destination Arcade offline. For some reason when you do that a section opens up called "Hot Games."

When I try opening it, it attempts to sign in to Live, and when it can't it comes up with an error stating: 'This game requires a connection to Xbox Live' the only option is to hit 'ok' and kicks me back to the dashboard.
