News Family Bethesda Deals RPG Shooter Xbox 360 EA Microsoft

So Christmas has passed, but another holiday is in route. With New Years just days away, let’s reveal all of the games, add-ons, and deals for Xbox Live. In honor of the games I have played over the holiday, I decided to put on my Skyrim iron helmet and my Ugly Americans tee-shirt. Nothing like killing dragons and shooting down ugly manbirds for Christmas.

This has been another excellent year of gaming, and I cannot wait to see what next year will bring. Once again thanks for joining me on Xbox Live News with Pipper!

Have a Happy New Year everyone, and I wish that your resolutions are to play more video games next year. (Play Hard OR Don’t Play At All!)

Love video games enough to go to school for it!
