Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade kicks off today. To promote the four downloadable games releasing each week, our friends over at Microsoft have informed us they’ve teamed up with YouTube gamers for a slew of livestream events this month. You can catch gamers like JesseCox, GameGrumps, and Raychul showing off these games every week at 3 PM PST via this YouTube channel.

Below is the schedule of each new Summer of Arcade game coming out this month and a little description of why you may want to tune in or download each game yourself. When you buy any two games, you’ll also get a download code for a Souls Pack for Ascend: Hand of Kul, free. Happy gaming.
