Xbox Live News with Pipper – February 14, 2013

News Bethesda Deals Capcom Xbox 360 Microsoft


Something is in the air, and it’s not love when Xbox’s Deals of the Week are concerned. Thanks for joining me – The Poid Pipper – once again for another episode of Xbox Live News with Pipper. Valentine’s Day is here but Xbox is not showing the love. If it were love, we would be Microsoft’s long forgotten spouse waiting in a dusted, creaky rocking chair. Xbox Live, I would love to take advantage of your deals but they are as old as the blue cheese crumble in your refrigerator. Skyrim alone cannot stop the candy hearts from crying but urges you on to the rest of the article.
