World of Tanks update adds new maps, achievements and more


The 1.2 update to World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition fires in two new maps: Abbey and Fisherman’s Bay. It also adds a nighttime mode as well as snow and rain effects for select existing maps. Some vehicles have been tweaked with new and updated customization packages. The user interface has also improved: ribbons indicating point-scoring actions now appear along with a countdown timer for base capture. This should make it easier for newer players to learn which actions are most beneficial.

And for the achievement hunters out there, eight new toasts are waiting to be popped. When first installing this update, players will retroactively receive credit for past actions and unlock all applicable achievements.

The update is available now and ready to roll out.

Games for Gold titles in June for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One


The Games with Gold program will celebrate its first anniversary this June.  To celebrate, Microsoft is expanding the program to include the Xbox One. Additionally, Xbox Live Gold members will receive three Xbox 360 games this month instead of the usual two. Those titles will be Dark Souls, Charlie Murder, and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. Xbox One owners will receive Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault as the first two games to be part of the Games with Gold program.  These titles are a good mix of retail and downloadable titles — for the downloadable titles we reviewed, we thought very highly of both Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Charlie Murder, so be sure to check those out while they are free this coming month after reading our reviews.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Trailer and release date


The team at Ubisoft that created Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends is creating a sidescrolling adventure puzzle game. Valiant Hearts: The Great War tells the story of five characters and how they are brought together by the events of World War I.  Between Karl the German soldier, Anna the Belgian veterinarian, and a playable dog, players will experience the first World War from a variety of perspectives.

The trailer (below) is much more story-driven than one might expect from the Rayman developers. The art-style seems to point towards a stylized news-strip comic reminiscent of the period, and the haunting piano melody that bookends the trailer is both absolutely beautiful and at once memorable. This is one to watch as time draws ever closer to E3. Valiant Hearts: The Great War launches on June 25 for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Peggle 2 available now for Xbox 360


Peggle 2 has bounced its way onto the Xbox 360. Originally released as a timed exclusive shortly after the launch of the Xbox One, the colorful and addictive puzzle game is now available for a wider audience. 

The original Peggle delighted gamers of all dispositions across pretty much every current platform in existence. This sequel offers an additional 60 levels, 60 trials, 180 objectives, a multiplayer mode called Peg Party, as well as four new Peggle Masters to accompany the lovable unicorn Bjorn. New for the Xbox 360 release is another multiplayer mode, entitled Duel Mode, and a much welcomed colorblind option.

The game is priced at $11.99 and is available on the Xbox Live Marketplace.


YouTube update on Xbox One simplifies uploading


An update releasing today will make uploading gameplay clips to YouTube a seamless process. Content can now be captured with the Game DVR app, subsequently edited in Upload Studio, and once finalized, shared directly with a linked YouTube channel. This simplification now allows more users the wherewithal to reach a larger audience in an easier fashion.

In addition, the update brings with it the ability to view YouTube videos in Snap Mode. Aside from the countless strange juxtapositions possible, like Titanfall and keyboard cat for example, this feature can be useful in watching game walkthroughs while simultaneously playing that game. Finally, users can now pin favorite YouTube channels to the One Guide for easy access, making it quicker to get to subscribed content.

The Xbox 360 gets an update

Xbox Dashboard

As many users have noticed, an update rolled out for the Xbox 360 earlier this week. It is a fairly small update without many obvious changes since it takes care of “mostly back end stuff,” according to a tweet from Major Nelson. The only noticeable change allows videos rented through the Xbox Video app on the Xbox 360 to be accessed and played on other devices such as a smartphone or laptop. Previously, movies rented through Xbox Video on the Xbox 360 could only be watched on the Xbox 360.

An update to the Xbox One should also release this month.



New apps arrive for Xbox 360 and Xbox One

MLG App 2

A post on the Xbox Wire website reveals both new and updated apps for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The lion’s share of the coverage details the Major League Gaming (MLG) app’s release on Xbox 360.  With this app, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can view live streams of gaming tournaments, access an eSport report, as well as take in other original programming.  The most recent broadcast was for the Call of Duty Championship, which included a $1 million prize for the winning team.  Development of an Xbox One version is currently in progress.

Also on its way to Xbox One is MLB.TV.  Previously released and refreshed on Xbox 360, users who subscribe to both Xbox Live Gold and MLB.TV premium can watch all out-of-market regular season games for the 2014 season.

Ska Studios talks Charlie Murder patch

Charlie Murder battle of the bands

Ska Studios revealed the state of the next Charlie Murder patch via a quick little Facebook post on its page. The studio says that all of the “easy” fixes are complete but it is “waiting on some things that are out of [its] hands.” There is still no expected release date for the patch but Ska hopes it will be soon and can’t wait for players to get their hands on it. Charlie Murder is by no means unplayable without the patch and is still an amazing game, so don’t let a few bugs squelch anyone’s interest.
