Weekly Xbox Live Sale Begins

Beyond Black Knight Sword being on sale at $5, this week’s XBLA sale drops a lot of top-level games to a super-low price point. Bionic Commando Rearmed 1 and 2 are 60% off, with the first being $4 and the second being $6. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 drops to a mere $2.50, while Gotham City Imposters is $7.50. I Am Alive is $6.00, while HELL YEAH! is $6, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is $7.50, and Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is $4.

Of these, everything but Gotham City Imposters, I am Alive, and Kill Team are the easiest to recommend. BC 1 and 2 are excellent follow-ups to the original series, while Geometry Wars is timeless and this incarnation gives you a ton of content. Gotham City Imposters isn’t a perfect FPS, but is a fine gateway entry in the genre for such a low price, while Hell Yeah! exudes personality and style, and has some really fun gameplay mechanics. Lara Croft is an excellent 3/4 overhead action game, and I am Alive is very much a style over substance experience.
