You heard it here first!! Hot off the press, no one on the internet has announced this yet! This week's arcade title is Golden Axe. Microsoft was going to try to surprise us like they did last year with the Doom announcement, I suppose. But they're not as clever as your friendly neighborhood Krazie!

Look for the announcement tonight, but you guys get the news before ANYONE ELSE!

UPDATE: It looks as if Sonic The Hedgehog may also make his long awaited appearance on the XBLA tomorrow as well! We are expecting a duel-release of Golden Axe and Sonic The Hedgehog, although not confirmed my Microsoft yet. However, we are almost 100% sure that atleast one, if not both of these will be released tomorrow! This may lead to an announcement tonight for Genesis games being on the XBLA. Bring on Streets of Rage! Below are links to the achievements, they should be up on the main page shortly..

Golden (http://live.xbox.com/en-US/profile/Achievements/ViewAchievementDetails.aspx?tid=%09%5d%3bhe)j3ss) Axe

GOLDEN AXE?!? WTF! Do they really think this would blow my mind? Where the hell is a game like Bomberman? I would think they would lead in to E3 with a big multiplayer title like that to tout XboxLive. (dont get me wrong golden axe is obviously multi, but it has not aged as well.)
Thanks for the info though, good scoop.

They're also making a re-make? I've found some news on a Golden Axe that looks new...

Exactly right Pants it was the best game on Genesis. As for them releasing this and the news of them making a new one maybe its a hint as to what is to come at E3?

Better than Gunstar Heros? nah. I never said it was bad, but there have been quite a few of these games recently.( THE Awseome tmnt 89 and Double Dragon come to mind...) I just dont believe this game will blow the E3 crowds mind. But im sure I will be downloading it Wednesday. I hope the put out to games this week to show off XBLA a bit.

Updated the main post with links to the achievements for both Sonic and Golden Axe. Like King said, it looks like it may be a dual-release of those games tomorrow. Again, this ISNT confirmed, but it is HIGHLY likely. Look for the announcement tonight. I am also expecting some sort of announcement about Sega Genesis games coming to the XBLA, hence two of the biggest titles coming in one Wednesday. Can anyone say Streets of Rage? :p

Golden Axe = STUPID! (played it on the Sega Genesis way back and hated every second of it)

Sonic The Hedgehog = DA BOMB! I won't even bother with the trial version.

There is no chance in hell that either Sonic or Golden Axe or both are the game/s that M$ announces tonight for XBLA. Reason number 1: They both are already on Wii's Virtual Console. Can u actually see Peter Moore on stage announcing that you can now get Golden Axe?? I can't because it would be very stupid and anticlimatic. If you want the real scoop for the XBLA game that is coming out tonight, here it is: Bungie's other FPS, Marathon. You can take that to the bank.

07-11-2007, 01:32 AM
We can assume the games will be at last 800 each, because they know people will pay it :) I will now need to get points :( i hate spending as much as i do on video games.

Umm, Rand.. I took it to the bank, and they said your credit is no good here. Something about too many bad checks.

Call it writing a bad check, but the money will be put in tomorrow. Marathon was confirmed for XBLA but nothing was said when it will be released.

Yeah well maybe you didn't read what Randal said. He said TONIGHT'S download would be Marathon and NO WAY it would be Gaunlet/Sonic. So wrong & wrong. We already knew Marathon was coming, along with another five dozen games that were not mentioned tonight. He was making his guess about the XBLA biggie tonight.

Trust me, me & Rand go way back. It was more of a personal jab at him. I didn't even bring up how he's always wrong about the price drop. Oh wait, that's an inside joke too. ;)

Yeah last night was the first night I've ever played that game and it instantly reminded me of the Double Dragon game we got a month or two ago. I hated that game too.

I still can't believe the secret games were Sonic and freaking Golden Axe!!! That was so retarded but i'll admit i was wrong. At least I was right about one thing: Peter Moore didn't make the announcement. : ) And they should have dropped the price, its been the same since launch for christ's sake. That's the longest a sysetm has gone without a price drop.
