The Verge is reporting (via Polygon) that Microsoft plans to launch a set-top box with Xbox branding sometime ahead of 2013′s holiday season. This device will reportedly be a cheaper alternative to buying a full on Xbox 360 simply to watch Netflix or any of the other entertainment apps.
Sick of your Wii U yet? God I hope not. You just got it! In case you are, the game industry has a couple of titles just for you you spoiled little brat.
While you were playing Assassin’s Creed III, did something feel a bit off? Did you fall through the floor or have important people disappearing? Ubisoft feels your pain and discomfort and will be releasing a major patch by the end of next week that will address a whole slew of these inconveniences, a.k.a. bugs.

Bioware has responded to the reports of Call of Duty: Black Ops II install disc issue.

So, did you guys vote or did you just stay at home playing Halo 4? One will determine the fate of our country for the next four years while the other the fate of the universe. From that perspective the choice seems rather simple. But enough about that! Onwards to the industry’s current juggernaut. After that, get ready for a full on console launch come this Sunday. Too bad you won’t see any of those games here. I’m saving those for a special Coming Soon this Friday.
November has come once again to grace its presence upon the games industry. You can tell because every store that carries new games visibly sinks a little bit every Tuesday. So then, what jewel shall we find in this week’s pile of new games?
Christmas is a-coming. Can you feel it? Can you feel your game store filling up with games you’ve never heard of? Have you seen the annual signs yet like the Call of Duty or Professor Layton games lining store shelves? If you haven’t you’ll see one this week.
Missed me? So did I (long story). All that matters now is that I’m back, and just as depressing as ever. No amount of meds can fix this busted ass brain of mine. Shall we get on with it?
