Ever wondered how fun it would be if you were to actually live in an arcade itself? You know, being surrounded by arcade cabinets and all. It would certainly be a dream for a fair number of us out there, but then again, such a scenario is practically impractical in this day and age, although you might be able to pull it off if you were single. What if you...
The Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist is having a year.
The Toy Soldiers games were a blast on Xbox Live Arcade and I'm expecting more good things from Toy Soldiers: War Chest, coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year. My favorite tower defense titles are the ones that let you take direct control as opposed to just sitting back, placing and upgrading units every so often from up high. Show More Summary
To cap off their three-night stint in Brooklyn, Arcade Fire brought out David Byrne for a cover of Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream.” Byrne has performed live with the band before — in 2005, he joined them on stage at Irving Plaza to sing the Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody).” While in [...]
Okay, I’m going to have to go on the trust of others here because I live in Central Illinois and don’t use Tor so I can’t see any of this shit, but according to a number of music websites that apparently employ nothing but Sherlock Holmes...Show More Summary
Above: Goat Simulator, coming to Xbox One When mind-bender Braid came to Xbox Live Arcade in 2008, it felt emblematic of a curated platform: a boutique in which unique concepts and independent developers could gain exposure. Now the boutique is long...

Arcade Fire’s new video for the Reflektor track “You Already Know” feels, in some ways, like an extension of the whole bobblehead-mask schtick of their recent live shows; it shows another way for the band to play with ideas of image and representation. The clip is made up entirely of home-video-style footage of the band [...]
The night was Arcade Fire's and rightfully so.

Being able to sample content from digital storefronts is one of the more compelling advantages of shopping digitally. Trial-sized portions of games could be sampled on the Xbox 360 by downloading Xbox Live Arcade titles, which could then be used to...
I came to really appreciate the way Microsoft handled demos on Xbox 360. Xbox Live Arcade titles were required to offer them, and if you liked what you played in the trial, it was super easy to upgrade to the full thing right then and there. Show More Summary
Before 4J Studios became involved with the console versions of Minecraft, it ported Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie to Xbox Live Arcade -- rather well, I might add. If you haven't yet played them on Xbox 360, they're worth a revisit, and you can save a bit of money. Both titles can now be purchased together in a Banjo Games Bundle, priced at $14.99.
