XBL Store Today: Lego The Hobbit, Kinect Sports Rivals, RBI Baseball 14, more


Six new games are now available through the Xbox Live Store in today’s update…

The Xbox One will play host to three of those games as Lego The Hobbit, Kinect Sports Rivals, and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut have all been released for Microsoft’s new console. Kinect Sports Rivals brings the popular minigame compilation to the Xbox One for the first time while Strike Suit Zero is now available for consoles in an expanded and enhanced new edition. Lego The Hobbit is also available on the Xbox 360.

Another Xbox 360 release this week is MLB Advanced Media’s first foray into video game development, R.B.I. Baseball 14. The beloved baseball franchise is back and so is its signature style of fast-paced gameplay. Before today, you could say that they don’t make ’em like R.B.I. Baseball 14 anymore. But now they do again. Finally this week, the third episode of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us, A Crooked Mile, is available to download through the Xbox Live Arcade. The latest tale of murder in Fabletown has been priced at $4.99, but will be free to anyone who purchased the Season Pass.

More details about all of these titles can be found after the break. (more…)

Microsoft @ PAX East 2014: Project Spark, TitanFall, Super Time Force, more

xboxone-boxMicrosoft plans to have a huge presence at this year’s PAX East convention, but temper your expectations, as most of the games they’re bringing to the show are already available to all.

The centerpiece of the Xbox booth will be this Spring’s biggest game, TitanFall. It will be joined by cartoony shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (originally released in February), game creator Project Spark (which is currently available in open beta), and a quartet of launch games (Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Killer Instinct). Early April releases Kinect Sports Rivals and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut will also be playable at the Microsoft booth.

As of right now, the only unreleased game Microsoft plans to show in its PAX East booth is Super Time Force. This leads me to guess that Super Time Force is probably going to be added to the Xbox Live Store pretty soon. Just a hunch.

More details on Microsoft’s PAX East 2014 plans for all of these titles are available after the break. You can also read all about the panels the consolemaker will be hosting, including a Project Spark panel, a TitanFall panel, and a live recording of Major Nelson’s podcast. (more…)

MS bringing Killer Instinct, Battlefield 4, Forza 5, Ryse, “other suprises” to PAX Prime 2013


PAX Prime practically takes place in Microsoft’s backyard and the consolemaker will have a large presence at the show, taking over three booths (#412, #422, and #432) and a hefty chunk of the Washington State Convention Center. But they only plan to have eight games on display, and one of them is on loan from Electronic Arts.

Four Xbox One games will be playable on the show floor including Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome, Turn 10’s Forza Motorsport 5, Double Helix’s Killer Instinct reboot, and DICE’s Battlefield 4.

Microsoft also plans to erect a massive theater in their booth that will showcase developer-guided demos of four additional games on a 30-minute rotation. The rotation includes new looks at Rare’s Kinect Sports Rivals:, Capcom’s Dead Rising 3, the game creation game Project Spark, and the lone Xbox 360 game in their booth, Fable Anniversary. According to Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb, “other surprises” may be in store for the Xbox booth as well.

This year’s PAX Prime expo runs from August 30 through September 2. More details on all of the demos can be found after the break. (more…)
