Summer of Arcade 2009 comes to a close this week with the release of Chair’s “Shadow Complex” for the Xbox 360. The 2D/3D side scrolling Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) will set you back 1,200 MS Points.
The game serves as an homage to classic games such as “Super Metroid” and “Castlevania: Symphony of the Night”. Players will take part in a rescue mission and uncover power-ups that will assist you on your journey.
A review of the game will be posted on the site shortly.
Obviously, the biggest title hitting store shelves this week is Atari’s “Ghostbusters: The Video Game“, which will be available on all major platforms. As you probably already know, this game is a sequel of sorts in which gamers get to play through moments from the first two movies.

It will be interesting to see how Microsoft will respond to this. Keep in mind that the original Xbox was replaced by the 360 four years into its life span.
Personally, I think if this were to happen, it will be what the PS2 Slim was to the original PlayStation 2. The same console in a smaller casing.
The iPhone OS version PopCap Games‘ highly addictive “Peggle” is available for $0.99 through the iTunes App Store. The catch is that you have until midnight on June 14 to make the purchase. Be warned though, you might have a hard time doing anything else but play Peggle on your iPhone/iPod Touch.
