Xbox Live Update: Star Wars, Mass Effect, and Halo! Oh my!
Did anyone else read the headline in the suave and soothing voice of George Takei? There is a lot to be happy about in this weeks Xbox update. In the past couple of weeks this has been a rather shallow and devoid of content, but that changes today. There are new Halo 4 maps, which are excellent. The last multiplayer DLC for Mass Effect 3 hits today, as well as the first pack of Star Wars tables for Pinball FX 2. We also get Gaijen Games Bit Trip Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien tomorrow as well. There is plenty of Gears of War 2 & 3 DLC on sale as well to get you pumped up for the release of Gears of War: Judgement coming mid next month. Next week expect a great deal on some Sega titles from the Saturn days. Don’t forget also about the Ultimate Games Sale that I posted about earlier.
Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds – 800MP
Runner2 – 1200MP
Guardians of Middle Earth: Survival Mode & Goblin-Town map – 320MP

For more details and anything I didn’t cover can be found on the official Xbox page. The Halo 4 Majestic maps are excellent. I had a go at them last night and they are smaller, close quarter maps. The Battle Rifle is very efficient and extraction on Landfall is awesome. There will be plenty of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer tonight for me, it’s really a crime this is the last DLC we will ever get; I need more characters to name after Marvel heroes and villains.
