In addition to this announcement, Microsoft has also revealed that those who decide to purchase all of the games listed here will receive the action RPG Crimson Alliance for free. It will be available on Sept 7 for $15 if you want to buy it separately. Not sure if I will buy all of them, but Bastion and ITSP are definitely on my radar, that’s for sure. I played a demo for each of them at Pax East back in March, and felt that the voice over narration for Bastion was a great way to immerse the player into the story. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet was alot of fun as well, especially with the different gadgets that the ship allowed the player to use.

So which games are you excited about?, let us know in the comments below.
