So far Telltale's Game of Thrones series has had more than its fair share of adventure, intrigue and death – and it's only at the halfway point. Episode 4: Sons of Winter will be out next week to continue the tragic saga of House Forrester. Whether it be Gared's journey beyond The Wall, or Asher's infiltration of Meereen, or Mira's political workings in a very turbulent King's Landing, every member is playing their part to prevent their House's demise. The episode will be out May 27 on Xbox consoles for $4.99, and as always it comes as part of the season pass. Check out the launch trailer after the jump.

We post our streaming schedule each week, however, we'd like to start highlighting at least one of our more unique streams each week. Join us Tuesday from 10PM EST to 2AM EST for a Smite overview and in depth look at each of the starter gods (Ymir, Neith, Thor, Guan Yu and Ra). We will go over everything you need to know as a new player to get started, as well as breaking down some of the jargon you will hear if you watch pro matches or high elo PC streamers.
We will be streaming for people with no MOBA experience working our way to build the basic foundation you need to succeed. We will go over basic strategies for both Arena and Conquest, as well as helping you know what your role is in an Arena/Conquest match for your specific character so that you can help the team win. We will give you basic item builds and let you know the key combos you need to hit. We may even touch on some more nuanced points once we've had time to cover the basics. If you have any questions during the stream feel free to interject and we will try to back up and explain things.
For those of you who can't make the stream feel free to bookmark this page, and we will edit the VOD in on Wednesday. Join us every Tuesday at 10PM EST for Smite action on Twitch.
Last week we challenged Memories of Final to complete Goat Simulator as fast as possible while making a guide to help new players unlock all the achievements. The result is an hour and thirty-four minutes of hilarity, mostly stemming from his hatred of Flappy Goat.

Smite for Xbox One may still be in Alpha; however, we wanted to help new players out with easing the learning curve a bit. Arena mode is one of the simplest modes for new players to the MOBA genre [If you aren't familiar with MOBAs at all click here]. Players fight five on five inside a circular arena. Each team has minion lines and a portal. Teams start with 500 points and lose points each time one of their minions is last hit, a player is killed by the other team, or an enemy minion (or siege minion) walks into their portal.
Arena mode have a more simplistic and accelerated pace from the traditional three lane mode (conquest). Players start at level three and will generate more gold passively. It's typically a bit quicker and chaotic as teamfights break out constantly. We've made a video to help new players learn the ropes. Also join us this Tuesday Night at 10PM EST -2AM EST for some Smite on Twitch. We will be happy to answer any questions, and we will have Alpha codes to give out on stream.
Yesterday we streamed We Are Doomed on Twitch. MemoriesOfFinal went over each level in We Are Doomed as well as tips and tricks to help players survive versus each enemy type. Up your game and set new high scores with this guide. Make sure to follow us on twitch to know when we go live. Our streaming schedule goes up on the Twitch Channel and XBLAFans every Monday. If you would like to see more content like this or have ideas for something else you would like to see us stream, please leave a comment.
We Are Doomed is available on the Xbox Store for $9.99. Our review wasn't very favorable, but I personally have been enjoying the game. The art style and music are really captivating and the game gives a unique spin on established mechanics for the twin-stick shooter genre.
We would like to welcome Razor Priest to the XBLAFans Stream Team today. We are looking forward to seeing some awesome content from him soon. Also big thanks to everyone who joined us Saturday and made that such a success. I hope to see you guys around more this week. Big shoutout to all our new subs!

We posted about this briefly in our Twitch schedule; however, I wanted to update everyone on tomorrow’s stream. We will be hunting down as many Achievements as possible from likely near a dozen different games. Nothing is pre-prepared, so we aren't going for any kind of world record here. It should be a fun stream highlighting a lot of awesome titles, many of which have very easy Gamerscore.
We also had a bunch of awesome developers send us a ton of giveaway codes for the stream, which we will be giving away throughout the full 12-hour marathon. Just to highlight some of those games which you will for sure see during the stream as well as in giveaways: Roundabout, LA Cops, The Escapists, Dive Kick, and Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers. We also have another half a dozen games we will be running through.
If you've been playing the Smite alpha on the weekends you have likely earned a solid amount of gems. For those unaware, Hi-Rez has unlocked all gods and allowed players to earn gems for their win of the day bonuses on the weekends during the alpha. There are three skin bundle sales on the Xbox One. You can find them by clicking on any of the skins listed below. It's a great way to spend those gems and get a high bang for your buck.
