As of July 18 Bomberman and the Kung Fu game will be available, im not getting those, but anyone have the scoop on next week's content

If anyone saw the XBLA Trailer you might have caught the Track & Field game and the battle-mech type game...I want both of those, but a good look at any other games might get me interested, please any info you got

What's the big hype around Track and Field? Unless it's changed, the 360 version doesn't have you alternating button presses, it's all just the "A" button. :(

How about for Achievement sake? If pressing "A" gets me the achievements, then I'm in!:p

'Track & Field' without a trackball is not 'bout it.

I play olympic games on the computer in school. Its so addictive yet a quick 5 min game. I would spend the 5 bucks on it...

I don't recall Track & Field having a trackball. If I remember correctly you had two buttons you alternated to make you run (used to do the comb trick myself) and another that was throw/jump.

Guys, OXM gave Track and field a 3. That's out of 10.

You are all just setting yourselves up for disappointment.

And that is their opinion...for me, I loved Track & Field...same as I did Contra, and Double Dragon...both of which realistically to me suck on the 360, but I own nonetheless...and quick achievements are quick achievements (hopefully)...that Mech game is suppossed to be badass though from what I was seein on G4TV

I think your right...there was no trackball.

Does anyone remember the game "Jungle Strike" for Sega I believe..... That was like one of my all time favs and I wish they would bring that shit to XBLA!

They had Track and Field at the Gamerscore Blog event I went to a while back. I didn't think it was that great. You had to wiggle the analog stick back and forth as fast as you could. Not good for your controller. :biglaugh

You don't give games with untapped potential 3's. You give bottom of the barrel sloppy ports 3's.

I Completely Agree! :) I Loved the "strike" games, there were actually 5 of them!

Jungle Strike
Urban Strike
Desert Strike
Soviet Strike
Nuclear Strike

Urban strike was my favorite because of the badass theme song it opened up with :D

Plus, it was crazy that the game predicted the 9/11 attacks. Simply crazy

I get my information from Major Nelson.com, since he usually says what game it is on a Sunday.

Anyway, I hope it's Marathon. Looks cool. I wish they had some games like Final Fight or Streets of Rage 2 or 3.

That's right. What game was it that had the trackball? Some Olympic game maybe...

i agree 100%, they promised us this game would hit live this summer. GI did a write-up about it in this months issue and that just made me want it more :(

Ive heard from a lot of places that the Track game sucks. I really hope that it is marathon, I have an extra 800 points after I buy bomberman so Marathon would be a nice addition to my 28 arcade games :^)

I hope War World, Track & Field and Marathon are coming out soon, before my long trip season comes (2 weeks @ Lake George & Hamptons)

I just read on GameSpot that Super Contra and Bomberman Live are both coming out on Wednesday. I had no idea that Super Contra was even coming out...

I was wrong, it's actually Super Contra and Wing Commander not Bomberman Live. Sorry for posting wrong information at first.... :(
