Halo: Spartan Assault invading Xbox One and 360 with co-op

Microsoft has, somewhat disingenuously, used Halo: Spartan Assault to advertise "having Halo" on Windows 8, when it's really only a so-so twin-stick shooter set within the same pointless fiction. Still, if you fancy having a bash but not buying Windows 8, good news: the game's coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One in December.

Ascend: Hand of Kul out F2P on XBLA

Microsoft announced back at E3 2012 that it was bringing a free-to-play action-RPG to Xbox Live Arcade, then seemed to forget about it.

Fez XBLA getting patched after cert fees dropped

Fez creator Phil Fish became, very much against his will, the poster boy for railing against Xbox Live Arcade patch certification costs last year. But now that Microsoft has dropped patch certification fees, hooray, a new Fez patch is coming to XBLA.

State of Decay update 2 out today

It started in Australia but didn't stay there for long. Within hours it was rolling across borders and drifting across seas, a wave of undead crashing against shores. The second State of Decay title update is rolling out today, I'm saying. The patch notes list a grand 56 changes, from bug fixes to balance tweaks.

Girl Fight trailer shows girls fighting

If you'd feel a little silly playing a video game that is ostensibly about sexy girls in sexy costumes fighting each other, relax: Girl Fight all goes down in virtual reality as an evil corporation experiments upon abducted women. Look, come watch the new trailer and you'll soon realise you'd be perfectly comfortable playing it in the company of other adults (it is rated Mature 17+, after all).
