Microsoft Drops Annual Cost of LIVE

As you may know, LIVE can be quite pricy at $60 a year. Well, MS has dropped the price of an annual membership to $40, a $20 savings. This IS a sale, so it won't remain this way forever, however a representative at MS has said that "there is no end date."

So if you're looking for a deal, jump on this whole you can, which again, we have no idea how long that is.

March Games With Gold

Update: At this point, these will be next month's GwG. Look forward to them. :D

Original: First, this isn't 100% at the moment, so don't freak out if it ends up being different.

Xbox One

IDARB will continue to be free for those who haven't downloaded it, but as this IS a rumor at the moment, you may want to get it if you haven't. IDARB is an odd party spots style game that utilizes social networking, mainly Twitter, and incorporates tweets in-game.

Rayman Legend will also be free, this is the fifth game in the main series and has received critical acclaim with near perfect scores, averaging a 9/10. The lowest score this title received was an 83% (out of 100%, obviously), and that was on the VITA.

Xbox 360

Bioshock Infinite will be free for the first half of the month. Thus is the third installment of the Bioshock series, yet taking place in another version our dimension. Infinite features Detective Booker DeWitt who's been instructed to find a mysterious girl and return get to New York.

Bioshock Infinite also received critical acclaim, receiving several perfect scores and winning many awards, including "Game of the Year" in 2013.

Tomb Raider will be free the latter half of the month. It is considered a reboot of the series (although the only one I played was the first, I think, on the Playstation), it has also received many positive reviews, averaging a respectable 8.5/10.

The game is notable for its graphic display of violence, particularly that part when she gets impaled on the tree branch in the QTE-esque river part, and offering players many ways to complete an objective.

Again, this is just "word of mouth" right now, and we'll update this when we hear verification or not.

New Zelda 3DS Title

Please note that this is just speculation, rumor, and personal desire.

So Majora's Mask came out last week, I've not yet bought my copy (hopefully I'll pick it up tomorrow, or I might start Mike Tyson'ing people), but that hasn't stopped me from looking forward to the next potential Zelda entry on our neat little handhelds.

In case you can't guess from the above image, many personal dream is that Twilight Princess will make the jump. I believe without a doubt that the system could handle the game, it's a damn powerful machine, really. This would put my top 3 Zelda games on one system, what's not to love?

No indication or solid word leads me to believe this will happen, but hell, I don't see why Nintendo wouldn't port it, it sold very well (actually THE BEST SELLING* with at least 8.5 million sales), and got critical acclaim (9.5, 9.5, 5/5, the LOWEST score it got was 8.8/10)

Why would Nintendo not want more money? If they have any business sense, it's a no brainer, and Nintendo is pretty good about heading their fans.
