Free Xbox LIVE Gold Status for a Limited Time
Xbox LIVE users, get on the stick. Microsoft’s announced that the premium status Xbox LIVE Gold status is being extended to all Xbox LIVE users on the weekend of January 28th to the 31st, 2011. It’s kind of a “you didn’t spend enough on Christmas, so try Gold and maybe you’ll loosen up” promotion.
Thanks, Uncle Bill (Gates)!
You might also be interested in downloading Sam and Max Episode 104 from Telltale Games. These guys are reviving that classic Lucasarts manic adventure gaming feel, and this game writer says they’re doing a pretty darned good job of it.
Episode 104 is solid – I’m 90% through and have actually LOLed a few times. Yes, it happens. You know it’s good times when you’re tasked with killing a giant berserk Abe Lincoln. You also get to rig furry psychopath Max up to win the emergency presidential election that is required after you accidentally, uh, incapacitate the previous president.
