Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a puzzle-platformer on the Xbox 360 that has you start as a captive, but learn to devour everything. Your growth spurt includes gaining cool superpowers such as magnetism, rockets and telekinesis. It’s $7.99 to get your blob on.

Grand Theft Auto V gets the I’m Not a Hipster DLC adding all-new retro print tees, skinny jeans and cool hairstyles. New weapons include the Vintage Pistol and Antique Cavalry Dagger. There are also 12 new hipster-inspired jobs. Get out there and show Los Santos who the trendiest is with this free update. It’s not just hipster content, the update contains some bug fixes too.

The Xbox One got Titanfall’s Expedition DLC last month, now it’s hitting the 360. Expedition adds three brand new maps. Runoff is set in a water treatment plant. Swampland is set, appropriately enough, in the swamps. War Games takes place in the arena where players began their Titanfall journey. Expedition is $9.99, and the Titanfall Season Pass that gets players all content for one price is $24.99.


Games with Gold makes its debut on Xbox One this month with two free titles. Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a puzzle-platformer starring a little kid trying to save his brother from an evil magician. Halo: Spartan Assault is a twin-stick shooter that picks up in the timeline between Halos 3 and 4. Finish the fight one more time.

The 360 still has Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Charlie Murder available for free through June 30. Coming in July is a big ol’ Xbox One Update that will allow players to “snap” achievements. That seems really convenient, much better than the current process which requires a whole lot of loading. Instead of needing to pause your game to remember how many zombies you were supposed to kill, now it’s right there on the screen the whole time.
