xbox_live_weekly_update_image1311After a delay to work out some technical issues, Pinball FX2 is now available on the Xbox One. Tables purchased on Xbox 360 will now carry over to Xbox One free of charge. It includes the Sorcerer’s Lair table for absolutely free, so it’s worth trying to see if you’d like to purchase any other tables. The latest table celebrates Marvel’s newest bigscreen sensation, the Guardians of the Galaxy. Led by interstellar outlaw Peter Quill, who prefers to be called Star-Lord,  the Guardians have to face Ronan the Accuser. This table features 3D versions of Rocket Raccoon, Drax and you know, Star-Lord.

While we’re on the subject of free stuff (0ne of my favorites) remember Dishonored is free through Games with Gold from August 16-31 on the Xbox 360 4GB . It’s a stealth-oriented action game that tells the story of Corvo Attano, bodyguard to an empress. He gets framed for her murder and the kidnapping of her daughter, Emily. Corvo escapes and begins using his skills to find out the truth. It’s the kind of game you can play without killing anyone, or go in seeking vengeance and let the corpses pile up. It received rave reviews and is one of the better Games with Gold offerings we’ve seen. For free, there’s no reason not to try it out.



I’m also pleased to report a new installment in the Toy Soldiers series is on the way. Toy Soldiers: War Chest will feature four distinct armies. So far we’ve seen the Kaiser’s German Empire and well, I won’t spoil it for you. Here’s a trailer showing the fearsome new enemy:
