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.

The free weekend ends this Monday, March 31st, at 2:59 AM EST, so download the game and go destroy stuff.

Halo: Spartan Assault initiates operation price drop on Xbox One and Xbox 360

Halo_Spartan_Assault_Splash

Halo: Spartan Assault, originally designed for Windows phones and tablets, released mere months ago for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 but has already received a permanent $5 price drop to $9.99 on both consoles. Spartan Assault was developed by Vanguard Games and left behind the tried-and-true FPS format of the Halo franchise for the overheard camera world of traditional twin-stick shooters. Set between Halo 3 and Halo 4, you can take on 30 single-player missions or bring a friend along for the console exclusive online, co-op mode.

Check out our review for Halo:Spartan Assault and decide if the lower cost of entry makes the game more appealing, but we still suggest the free trial before committing your money.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, the 2.5D puzzle platformer from Press Play, is going to be gracing the Xbox 360 on April 9, 2014. This announcement comes via Phil Spencer’s Twitter account and is great news for those holding out for the Xbox 360 version. It will cost $14.99 and we highly suggest picking it up and giving it a go, especially if you missed it on Xbox One. We loved the game when it originally came out and we can’t wait to see more people get their hands on it.

Dungeon Defenders free until end of March for gold users

Dungeon_Defenders_Wallpaper

Dungeon Defenders looks to be March’s Games with Gold offering. One of our favorite games of 2011, Dungeon Defenders offers a deep co-op experience merging tower defense with action-RPG excitement. If you ignored our recommendation back then, anyone with a gold membership can pick up the game for free until March 31.

Sadly, the game was another example of a great console game outclassed by the adaptability of its PC counterpart. Dungeon Defenders offered additional content on PC, including skins and new characters: Ranger, Initiate, Countess and Adept. Trendy did release four additional levels for console in its Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards DLC packages that can be purchased separately for an additional $4 each.

The Games with Gold promotion is a great move for developer Trendy Entertainment. Players get a taste of a great game, but if they enjoy it, Trendy can still charge them for the definitive version (PC). Unfortunately this is a perfect example of why Gold members have been vocal that Games with Gold still leaves something to be desired when compared to PlayStation Plus. Microsoft is offering an older game that the developers openly cited XBLA policies for the limited DLC support. As of now, the sequel is slated for PC only.
