Oh snap! The Poid Pipper attacks once again with the Xbox Live Newsbeat. This time we shall be covering any news from October 18 – 31. Time to turn the spotlights on!


Please don’t dress up as a clown! I am deathly afraid of them. But while you play dress-up (not as a clown) make sure you take a glance at all of the deals and specials before Halloween. Perhaps play some Plants Vs. Zombies or download extra content for Left 4 Dead and Deadspace 2. There are plenty of ways to celebrate, so go customize your avatar and spook your friends.

And that’s it for the spotlight! Hope I didn’t scare off all the boys and ghouls (hehe). Shoveling on towards the new releases.
