The Summer of Arcade kicks off this week with:

Bastion (Xbox 360) - 1200 MSP

Bastion is an action role-playing experience that redefines storytelling in games, with a reactive narrator who marks your every move. Explore more than 40 lush hand-painted environments as you discover the secrets of the Calamity, a surreal catastrophe that shattered the world to pieces. Wield a huge arsenal of upgradeable weapons and battle savage beasts adapted to their new habitat. Finish the main story to unlock New Game Plus mode and continue your journey!

As detailed by osubluejacket in a previous post, in a special bonus, if gamers purchase all five Summer of Arcade titles, they will receive a free copy of Crimson Alliance which is set for a September 7th release and a price point of 1200 MSP. The Marketplace describes Crimson Alliance with the following:

Explore the mystical world of the Crimson Empire in this action-RPG adventure. Chose to play as the powerful wizard, Direwolf; the battle-hardened mercenary, Gnox; or the mysterious assassin, Moonshade. Play Crimson Alliance co-operatively with up to 4 players on the same console or over Xbox LIVE. Work together combining your unique abilities against the nefarious Cult of the Soul Siren and the fearsome beasts they control. Can you stop them before their dark plans are complete?
