E3 2014 is upon us gamers and fanboys. It’s time for another round of announcements and mania. Microsoft has made it a tradition of being the first out of the gate and this time they’ll start the show off on June 9 at 9AM PDT.
Xbox and Xbox 360 media, events, and news.
Telltale Games has done no wrong since debuting its story driven take on The Walking Dead. Since then we’ve seen the studio branch off into different realms including Game of Thrones and of course Pandora with Borderlands.
Telltale just released the first look at its version of Pandora. You can check out the gallery below.
Don’t forget that the Games with Gold program is alive and well on the Xbox 360. This month you’ll be able to download Dust: An Elysian Tail and Saints Row: The Third. Both of these games are free with Games with Gold.
When the curtains open and Microsoft takes the stage they have to be ready for a new war. If it wasn’t obvious during last year’s E3, then the months after should have made it clear that they are no longer the darlings of the console world. Where the Xbox 360 succeeded, the Xbox One is now an unknown. There was a community around the Xbox 360 that overshadowed anything that Sony could do with its PlayStation 3. Game after game after game on the Xbox 360 was outperforming the PS3 and doing so handily. Developer after developer after developer focused on the Xbox 360 above all else.
Ladies and gentlemen if you’ve been looking to stock your Xbox 360 game library, now is the time. There’s a pretty huge Xbox 360 Spring deal-a-thon going on right now that you don’t want to miss out on. Batman: Arkham City is only $4.99 during this deal! Even if you have no interest in the game, that’s a deal you just have to take advantage of.
You can actually get both Arkham City and Arkham Asylum combined for only ten bucks! There are a lot of deals on add-on content, season passes and more. Major Nelson has a break down for you to check out right here. The deals run through April 21st so be sure to grab some before then.
I know you’ve been waiting on an easier way to get your gameplay videos and clips onto YouTube. Tomorrow is the day that it will become easier for you. Microsoft is updating the YouTube app on Xbox One to include sharing of your Game DVR/Upload Studio creations. I think the popularity of the game sharing on Xbox One will surely increase.
Now, use Game DVR to capture epic gaming moments, edit them in Upload Studio, and, with the simple click of a button inside the YouTube app (look for My Uploads, In Settings, elect to “Share game clips” and “Share on social network”), share them instantly to your YouTube channel. The updated YouTube experience also allows you to watch YouTube videos in Snap Mode, add individual YouTube videos to your Pins, earn Media Achievements, and add your YouTube channels to OneGuide for instant access to YouTube videos right next to your favorite TV listings or App Channels.
Xbox 360 owners don’t feel left out because GoPro is launching for you. I’m not sure how many of you are into GoPro type content but it’s coming.
