Xbox Live had the week that wasn’t last week, but the platform is ready for a nice little turnaround.
Lots to like in the latest update of gaming goodness on XBL- There’s the RAAM’s Shadow add-on for Gears of War 3, Sonic CDand Joe Danger in the Arcade, Battlefield 3’s Karkland dlc- and a ton more.
My pick of the week has to be RAAM’s shadow though. Single player expansions are few and far between to say the least, and to have one offered for as big a title as Gears 3? Yes -and more- please. Uh, but maybe not for Duke Nukem Forever …Sorry Duke.
