Server closure: Warface on Xbox 360 going quiet on February 1

WarFace

Warface was publicly released for the Xbox 360 on April 22, 2014. Less then one year has passed, but Crytek has already announced that Warface for the Xbox 360 will no longer be available after February 1, 2015.

A Warface moderator on the xbox.com forums had this to say: “It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce you the upcoming closure of Warface: Xbox 360 Edition. We considered every option before making the difficult decision to end the product that brought us together.”

The moderator then goes into further detail saying, “We’re always evaluating our portfolio to ensure that the experiences available on Xbox suit the needs of our community. Player demand and creative direction sometimes mandate that we shift our focus onto other games and opportunities.”

How will this affect the players? Jump inside to find out.

On Monday, December 1, 2014, services on Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 were temporarily unavailable for several hours as users were unable to connect online.

Juju pic 1

Looking for a family friendly game this season? JUJU is a classic style platformer about a small, brave Panda (Juju) and his adventure to save his father and the world from the evil clutches of Calypso. Grab a friend or family member to join in the fun as Juju’s best friend, Peyo the lizard, in local cooperative play. Developer Flying Wild Hog says the game was designed for players of all skill levels, and it features second-player jump-in/jump-out at any time.

“As gamers and parents, we created JUJU because we know how frustrating it is when a game is either too easy or too hard for one player,” JUJU Creative Director Klaudiusz Zych said in a press release. “We knew there had to be a way for two people to have fun together and both be challenged, regardless of skill-level.”

JUJU offers 40 vibrant stages of brightly animated environments for gameplay and has nine giant boss fights that will keep players on their toes. There will be secret areas, hidden levels, time challenges and hardcore mode to keep the game going after the story is first completed. JUJU will arrive on the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace on December 10, 2014.

Available now, in a galaxy not far, far away — Star Wars skins come to Minecraft. There are 55 total skins, which include characters from Episodes IV, V and VI (the good ones). Many of the skins are the main characters in different outfits, like Luke Skywalker as an X-Wing pilot or as a Jedi Knight.  Some real gems include a rancor, wampa, Ponda Baba (the individual whom Obi-Wan Kenobi cuts the arm off of in the Mos Eisley Cantina), assassin droid IG-88 and many others you might need to look up, but are cool nevertheless.

This pack is available for $2.99 exclusively on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Doctor Who coming to Minecraft this September

dwhobbc

Thanks to a partnership between the BBC and Microsoft, Minecraft on the Xbox 360 will be receiving some Doctor Who themed DLC packs, the first of which has been announced to release this September. The first pack will include the Twelfth Doctor (that’s the new one played by Peter Capaldi, for readers who aren’t up on the show), Clara Oswald, and five other doctor/companion combinations in addition to some of the “most well-known adversaries” of the Doctor — thus far the Daleks have been revealed in a screenshot, but no other specifics have yet been announced. There is no word on whether this DLC pack will be coming to other editions of Minecraft — hopefully this content makes its way to Xbox One as well.  Readers looking to have some wibbly wobbly timey wimey pixely blocky fun might just have to plug in their old consoles for now.

R.B.I. Baseball review (Xbox One)

R.B.I. Baseball 14 was developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by MLB.com. It was released on April 9, 2014 on Xbox 360 and June 24, 2014 on Xbox One for $19.99. An Xbox One copy was provided for review purposes.

RBI Baseball

Baseball, America’s pastime, has long been a revered genre of video games, with some real gems appearing over the years for both simulation and arcade fans alike. The original NES R.B.I. Baseball and its successors remain well-liked, and this revival of the series by MLB.com looks to reignite this passion and to give all gamers — especially those console gamers without any baseball game choices at all — the opportunity to take their favorite team all the way to becoming World Series champions. R.B.I. Baseball 14 sets out knowing it must strike a balance between the classic controls, gameplay and nuance of the original, while also being a fun, accessible game for those baseball fans new to the series.
