Well after the hectic nature of things in the previous week, I must say it’s been eerily slow in Xbox news world this week. Still there’s at least five articles from us here at TXH that stuck in my mind, let’s have a little recap.
LEGO here, LEGO there, it’s blooming everywhere! Just a good job most people love it as they’ve announced a new partnership in the form of The Hobbit. If Lord of the Ring’s wasn’t enough for you, get ready to be treated to another mix of adventure and hilarity, this time based on the first two films of The Hobbit trilogy. Keep an eye out for Bilbo and friends in Spring 2014 on Xbox 360/Xbox One.
Sometimes I wonder what goes on in the head’s of the developers on Borderlands 2 as they don’t half come up with crazy yet brilliant ideas. They also deliver plenty of content to get our teeth stuck into, the most recent DLC being second in the Headhunter ones, The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler. The name itself makes me chuckle and at £2.39 you can’t really go wrong here in this tournament to take down the Wattle Gobbler.
A new month is now upon us and with that comes Xbox Live Games with Gold promotion where there’s a free game on 1st December and another on 16th December. A bit hit and miss after seeing the original Gears of War arrives first, although it was great back in the day most got it free with Gears Judgement. Second out is Shoot Many Robots which I’ve never played but it seems like a fun arcade title and a decent offering for free.
Everyone loves a good deal, therefore Turn 10 have slashed in-game car prices by 50% for this whole weekend. So if you want to buy a high priced luxury vehicle then today is your last chance to make it more affordable. VIP members are treated to a free Formula One car which isn’t bad at all, but if you’ve already got it then it’s a Ferrari 250 GTO as a substitute.
If you didn’t manage to get hold of an Xbox One or still aren’t sure then have a read of our thoughts on the first week of gaming on the Next-Gen. It’s an interesting read giving real insight on the console, the Xbox live service, Kinect and even a quick look at the launch games. There’s really no stone left unturned so grab a brew, put your feet up and have a jolly good read.
