Those of you who have Comcast know that On Demand is pretty great. You also know the menus for On Demand are slow, and at this point in technological history, a pain in the ass to navigate. Well now you can download the Xfinity app on your Xbox 360, and do all the On Demand surfing right from there.
It’s pretty awesome so far, and really gives you a better idea of what your On Demand has to offer. It’s a pain to navigate the archaic menus to see what’s on there. The only issue I have is they don’t have music videos. They kept the main focus on movies and tv shows. Which is fine but I would like to see that in the future. I used to watch music videos all the time On Demand, but the menus are too slow. READ MORE

Xbox Live’s annual Summer of Arcade is almost upon us with the first game, the action RPG Bastion, ready to kick start this shindig on July 20th. Last year brought us fantastic games like the gloomy puzzle platformer Limbo and Tomb Raider: Guardian of the Light and this year shaping up to be even better. Like last year we have five very different arcade games, ranging from god sims to strategy games, so there’s bound to be something for every type of gamer.
Last year’s reward for purchasing every game under the Summer of Arcade banner was a bundle of Microsoft Points, but this year thing’s are being handled a little differently. Now, if you buy every game you’ll get Crimson Alliance for free when it releases in September. It’s essentially Torchlight with four player co-op, so if that’s your thing and you have $70 to spare on five arcade games, it’s a pretty worthy bonus. Head past the jump for the full list of games, their prices, and what they’re all about. READ MORE

Alan Wake is easily my favorite game release this year. Sure, there are some awesome looking games coming out before New Years (I’m looking at you Castlevania
), but in terms of a game that has made me constantly want to revisit it and play through it over and over, Alan Wake definitely has the cake on that one. Now, they are announcing that Depeche Mode will have a song in the upcoming DLC. As much as I love my metal, Depeche Mode is easily one of my favorite bands. ‘Playing The Angel’ is among my favorite albums of all time. So color me excited when this news broke!
EMI Music Publishing Scandinavia and Remedy Entertainment today announced that the upcoming Alan Wake DLC will feature “The Darkest Star” by Depeche Mode, the most popular electronic band the world has ever known.
“Depeche Mode is a great fit for the upcoming Alan Wake DLC that links strongly with the game’s storyline. Having consulted with Remedy on their previous DLC “The Signal” for which we provided the song “No, I Don’t Remember” by Swedish singer-songwriter Anna Ternheim, we are thrilled to once again supply fitting and relevant music to one of the top-developers in the Nordic region.” said Andreas Olsson, VP Sales at EMI Music Publishing Scandinavia.
