Xbox Live News with Pipper – April 04, 2012

SNK Xbox 360 News Microsoft Deals Activision

Entering a new month means some April showers of awesomeness with Xbox Live News with Pipper! I have failed to mention to all of our readers that I have done some sport fighting alongside my career in gaming. While not immersed into a console I was occasionally wrestling to prove my worth on the mat (take that however you want to). A sweaty victory is a victory none-the-less. The reason I bring this up is because we have a few sales including “King of Fighters” franchise. Let’s see what Xbox has in store for us.

Deals Of The Week

With SNK providing a handful of fighting classics, Activision is making price cuts all around World at War and giving the Germans more to be happy about. Then again I am about 85% disgruntled German, so I probably don’t qualify. Oh, wait – that’s regional not heritage…

Okay, enough messing around. There are few Xbox Live Arcade titles to keep you busy as well as a plethora of sales on Activision titles. Get out there and try something new and tell us here at Capsule what you liked and didn’t. Thank you once again for reading, and always remember “Play Hard or Don’t Play at All!”

Love video games enough to go to school for it!
