  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for June 24th, 2010

    As I mentioned in this week’s Playstation wrap-up, I took last week off for E3. Apparently, Sony was exhausted, and decided to take this week off. Microsoft, for all of the inherent problems Xbox LIVE has as a service – the most of which is that I have to pay $50/yr to be able to […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for June 9th, 2010

    It’s 1AM on Thursday morning. Let’s get this shit on the road. Corrections Before I begin with this week’s material, I have to issue a correction in regards to last week’s piece. I said when I profiled Snoopy Flying Ace that the demo was pretty weak, only showing one tutorial stage, and that I wouldn’t […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for June 3rd, 2010

    As I mentioned in yesterday’s PSN piece, this week is a massive time crunch for me due to reasons outside of videogames. Of course, three games to review and bunches of other demos to play aren’t helping either, but needless to say, this is going to be a quick-and-dirty Xbox LIVE wrap-up. Xbox LIVE Arcade […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for May 27th, 2010

    I have bad news, and more bad news. The bad news is that DJ Tatsujin, due to his (absolutely outstanding) work with our PR department, will no longer be able to do this piece on a weekly basis. The more bad news is that you’re all stuck with me until we can find a permanent […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for May 13th, 2010

    With another week, we have another full list of updates for Xbox LIVE in our wrap-up. There are two Arcade titles on tap, more demos, a few add-ons for two popular game titles, and more. Xbox LIVE Arcade – Rocket Knight, Things on Wheels Sparkster makes his long-awaited return after making his action platforming mark […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for May 6th, 2010

    We’re back for another week as the Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up rolls into May. Today, we have a decent amount of content to look at as Xbox LIVE Arcade explodes with two Arcade titles and a brand new Game Room update. Also, we have deals, demos and more on tap so, hopefully, you took advantage of […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for April 22nd, 2010

    Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up returns with more updates on what you can expect to see popping up on the service this week. Last week saw the addition of a couple of arcade classics in one package, but this week ups the offering to two game titles on Xbox LIVE Arcade. We also have more demos, games […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for April 8th, 2010

    Just as I talk about how the service is slowly picking up from its lull, we get hit with this week. I’m guessing a good group of folks are still in Easter vacation mode. However, it doesn’t leave me with much to write about today. Thankfully, I had a few bonus features tucked away for […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for April 1st, 2010

    Microsoft is laying it on a little thicker this week, providing at least one hard-hitting addition in each of our certified Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up categories. The most successful game launch ever now features an add-on, one of gaming’s longest-running icons gets another game release, a whopping three Games on Demand hit the service, and we […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for March 25th, 2010

    Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up is back this week with open arms. However, it doesn’t seem like Microsoft is giving us a whole lot to work with this week. We certainly have all of the updates Xbox users have come to expect out of a week, though next week is looking like it will have a lot […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for March 18th, 2010

    We’re back again this week to update everyone on Xbox LIVE additions, searching around for this week’s new goods while catching up with some mentions of last week’s items. All of the categories are present once again as we see a re-vamped N64 classic hit Xbox LIVE, game add-ons to two of gaming’s most popular […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for February 25th, 2010

    Welcome back to another week of Xbox LIVE additions where this week sees a triple scoop of Xbox LIVE additions before we charge headfirst into March and the announced Xbox LIVE Arcade Block Party. Of course, this week will see even more with a new deal of the week, a good chunk of game add-ons, […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for February 18th, 2010

    I apologize for leaving everyone hanging last week, but the Xbox Wrap-Up is front and center in its punctual regularity this week and, man, do we have a lot of ground to cover today. It’s another exciting week of Xbox LIVE Arcade, Games on Demand, game add-ons, and more, but with the recent X’10 event […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for February 10th, 2010

    First off, let me begin by apologizing for the tardy nature of this piece. D.J. Tatsujin, the normal writer of this article, had a personal situation that had to be handled immediately. Therefore, I’m pitching in relief this week, and trying to fit this in with an already loaded schedule. So to steal a line […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for February 4th, 2010

    I hope everyone turned a page on their calendars, as today brings us our first Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for the month of February 2010. This week we’re looking ahead to many more updates in order to see what is in store for Xbox LIVE gamers. The week of February 4 is actually pulling in the […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for January 28th, 2010

    We’ve had a couple of fairly intense weeks of Xbox LIVE updates, haven’t we? As we approach the end of January, it appears the service is cooling off a little, just like it is certainly cooling off in my neck of the woods with this bothersome wind, freezing temperatures, and snow. If you don’t feel […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for January 21st, 2010

    After an explosive week last week, it looks like Microsoft is just warming up with Xbox LIVE additions and that’s certainly good news for everyone – especially for me as I wouldn’t have this dedicated space to ramble on with every week if it weren’t for these additions. We appreciate the reception we’ve received with […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for January 14th, 2010

    After two straight weeks of Xbox LIVE Wrap-Ups under our belt, the segment is well on its way to becoming a staple column on Diehard GameFAN as last week’s entry surprisingly had some visits and feedback. As impressive as the turnout was last week, though, the Xbox wrap-up was still crushed in the ratings by […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for January 7th, 2010

    2010 is here and, thankfully, there is no shortage of goodies to be found on Xbox LIVE this week. Let’s cut to the chase as we see the return of the Xbox LIVE Arcade release: Xbox LIVE Arcade – Matt Hazard in Blood Bath & Beyond While there was no Xbox LIVE Arcade title to […]

  • Xbox LIVE Wrap-Up for December 31st, 2009

    It’s not quite 2010 yet, but, hey, what does it matter? Our latest , Borderlands, Gearbox has now unleashed the second expansion to its hit game. Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot will add The Underdome to the player’s list of available locations to travel to and effectively adds another game mode to Borderlands. The Underdome challenges […]
