This Week on Xbox Live [XBLA & DotW]

Richard Walker

Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles! Heroes in a half-shell! TURTLE POWER! It's turtle time on the Xbox Live Arcade this week, as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows keeps the Summer of Arcade rolling with Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo embarking upon a dark beat 'em up adventure.

If you're in the market for some bargains meanwhile, Capcom has you covered with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (weirdly available at the same price without the extra content), and all of the accompanying DLC for both games at a discount.

Black Ops II fans can also get their hands on the final expansion for the game, with the Apocalypse DLC now available to download. Don't forget, you can get it as part of the game's Season Pass too. Check out the week's content below. We'll update this post as we find more stuff.

  • Still no word on Sunday's free game I take it...
  • @1 wow Sunday we get another free game already? I swear times flying.
  • Gonna get marvel vs capcom fate of two worlds and Jill I played ultimate but for some reason i found that much harder that FOTW or maybe FOTW was too easy for some strange same thing with SSF4A and SF4/SSF4
  • Is it safe to say that deals on arcades games are over?
  • There is also a sale on some Rockstar games and DLC or is that next week?
  • #2 Well the last two have been pretty grindy.
  • @1 and @2: Usually Major Nelson anounces what game(s) its going to be the day before. So keep an eye out Saturday. On topic, im definitely getting the TMNT game. Really looking forward to it!
  • Eager to know what the next two free games are.
  • I wasn't aware that the points have been ditched already. I thought that was coming at a later date. TMNT for me tomorrow! For everyone partaking in the Marvel/Capcom deal, I would take Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 over vanilla. It's obviously the better deal with much bigger content and more characters.
  • @#4 Amen to that. I have been waiting for Blood Dragon Call of Juarez and few that came out shortly after to go on sale with no luck. I am slowly losing hope, but I will be damned if I pay full price on any of them.
  • @5; there's a sale on some Rockstar games, or they're just reduced. xbldb's current deals shows what content have dropped in price, and if it's gold exclusive.
  • TMNT looks like a lot of fun, but I think I am gonna pass for now. Maybe wait until its a little cheaper. If I didn't have so many back logged games to play before November I'd be all over it!
  • FOTW was £9.99
  • Im still waiting for Dead Space 3 The Awakening dlc to go on sale and Forza Horizon November car pack so I can get the medals on it.
  • Umvc3 is actually still full price in the UK 24.99
  • Crapcom gypping the customers again...
  • just added a 1600 point card/$20 to my account for TMNT tomorrow, my question is i just picked up Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 at Gamestop with my buy 2 used get one free and also got MW3 and Sniper Ghost Warrior 2. Does the Ultimate version contain all the DLC listed above?
  • how much is tmnt going to cost in the UK? there only seems to be a release date for America.
  • it all getting expensive now with the conversions! 15$ equals 15€ oh come one microsoft i had it with you ... a 1200 point game costs me now 14,39€ this is outrageous
  • [Comment deleted]
  • Finally tmnt coming out tomorrow since they keep taking down previous tmnt games ill make sure to pick this one up though the turtles look awful in this game but i can deal with that
  • 34p lol
  • Would it be possible to have what the MSP price would have been? Just for a few weeks/months to get used to the prices..
  • Still waiting on ME3 Citadel...
  • I kinda want UMVC3. Bought the first one when it came out, when I was bad at fighting games, and still liked it a lot. Now that I'm much better I wonder if this would be an even funner experience.
  • I just snapped up the Rockstar Pass for £2.04! And I'm still waiting to hear what Septembers Games with Gold are going to be. I was reading somewhere that people were predicting one of the older Forza games, Dragon Age, and the obvious one which was already annouced to be coming, Halo 3. Personally, I wouldn't mind Dragon Age as I've never played it, and I'd like Halo 3 as I've been getting into the Halo series recently, having borrowed 4 and Reach off of friends. I just hope we get more full retail titles right up to the end rather than arcade games.
  • Stay Classy
  • Free games guess: Resident Evil 5 and hmmmm.... Mass Effect
  • Still waiting for DOTW on Omega and Citadel for Mass Effect 3.
  • mass effect 3 omega dlc was on sale less than 2 months ago. im not sure it will be on sale anytime soon
  • This Summer of Arcade has been terrible. Other than Brothers which was amazing Charlie Murder and Flashback were JUNK! Turtles better be good...
  • Rockstar Games is actually having a sale this week on Xbox Live...why wasn't it mentioned? I just picked up Red Dead for $15 after waiting months for a price plunge.
