Midway Leaves The Marketplace

Midway Leaves The Marketplace
Got a hankering for some old school Smash TV action on your Xbox 360? Well, hopefully you picked it up already as it’s no longer available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. In fact, there’s a handful of Midway arcade titles that are now MIA including Cyberball, Defender, Paperboy, Root Beer...

Xbox LIVE Usage: Jan 25th
Major Nelson has posted the most recent Xbox LIVE Activity list. The first thing you’ll notice is that Larry has expanded the list to encompass the Top 20, just like he did with the overall 2009 list. I’m happy to see this as it gives a better picture of what’s happening if you pull...

Upcoming Xbox LIVE Marketplace Releases

Upcoming Xbox LIVE Marketplace Releases
Looks like Microsoft is attempting to shift their announce schedule a bit. Typically, we find out what’s coming up at the beginning of each week, a lot of times on that Sunday via Major Nelson’s podcast. But just as we saw with December, Mr Hyrb has posted the next few week’s releases...

Daily Gaming Tidbits 01/12/10

REMINDER: Hungering for a taste of Final Fantasy XIII? Square Enix is giving gamers an early sample with a Final Fantasy XIII bus tour. Oddly though, it’ll only be touring the San Francisco & surrounding Bay Area. Not much of a tour, but if you live in that region & want to check it out,...

Xbox LIVE Usage: Week Of 11/23

Xbox LIVE Usage: Week Of 11/23
Looks like the entire list has been refreshed for the most part. The Gears of War franchise has completely disappeared. Unsurprisingly, Modern Warfare 2 is reigning supreme & I don’t expect it to be toppled anytime soon (most likely not until the next holiday season). In fact, the Call of Duty...

Live on LIVE This Week
Usually Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb announces the week’s Arcade, Deal of the Week, & Games on Demand titles during his weekly podcast. But since he was out of town this weekend, we had to wait until this morning to find out what’s coming up. Launching on Arcade will be three...

LIVE Usage For Week Of 10/26

LIVE Usage For Week Of 10/26
Wow. I’m honestly surprised by this week. I must have really underestimated the following of the Halo & COD franchises as I fully expected Borderlands to crack the Top 5. On the Arcade side of things, I’m still very happy to see Trials HD sit on top of the list. That game really is one...

LIVE Additions 11/2-11/4
I’m not terribly impressed with this week’s offerings. First, Rock Band brings us more of the same (Nirvana & Foo Fighters). Now, we are getting 3 Wallace & Gromit episodes on Arcade & the Deal of the Week will be for a map pack on a game that most people will stop playing by...

Xbox 360 Dashboard Update

Xbox 360 Dashboard Update
Microsoft recently began their preview program for the next dashboard update. The first wave of participants received their update on Thursday night (myself included). After playing around with it for a few days, I think the best way I can describe it is “hit or miss”. Before I get into my...

Xbox LIVE Usage: Week Of 10/12
The Xbox LIVE weekly usage report posted today, fresh from Major Nelson’s Blog. I know I have been out of the loop the last few weeks, but honestly, I’m a bit surprised that Halo 3: ODST is only at the number 4 spot. On the other hand, the Arcade list is pretty much where I expected it to...

Some Xbox Dates To Remember This Month

Some Xbox Dates To Remember This Month
With the holidays quickly approaching, the flood of gaming goodness begins. I remember back when “holiday shopping” started in November. But as the years flew by, the end of year gaming rush eased it’s start date back to the beginning of the school year. Now, with the onslaught of various...

Xbox LIVE Activity Week Of 8/24

Xbox LIVE Activity Week Of 8/24
Straight from Major Nelson’s blog is this week’s LIVE activity list. The top 4 or 5 hasn’t really changed, but it was nice to see that Batman, the Wet demo, & the Dirt 2 demo crack the top 10. Arcade-wise, it’s pretty much a who’s-who of games from the Summer of Arcade...

Xbox LIVE Deal Of The Week & Arcade Update

Xbox LIVE Deal Of The Week & Arcade Update
This week on Xbox LIVE Arcade will see the launch of Trials HD. It’s described as a physics based racing game, but after some hands on time with it, I can attest it’s much more than that. Between the 50 playable levels & the editor along with the several game modes, saying it’s...

Review: TMNT: Turtles In Time Re-Shelled (360)

Review: TMNT: Turtles In Time Re-Shelled (360)
“Heroes in a half shell, TURTLE POWER!” Who doesn’t remember the definitive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song for the 1980’s cartoon? The source material was a bit dark & had a rabid comic book cult following, but the 1987 cartoon series was tweaked quite a bit &...
