MS overdelivers value with free Xbox One Avatar shirt photo
MS overdelivers value with free Xbox One Avatar shirt
by Brett Makedonski

Oh, Microsoft. Again you open the floodgates of charity and let the waters of value drench your consumers until they're to the point of drowning in hot deals and fun times. It's no surprise that the people, your people, have gathered en masse to sing the praises of your generosity.

Not long ago, you benevolently declared that the Xbox One "overdelivers value," but apparently it doesn't stop there. Oh, no! Now you've bestowed upon us a free Avatar t-shirt that sports the radiant logo of your upcoming wondermachine? Thanks for throwing us an (X)bone; we're not deserving of this sort of philanthropic gesture.

PAX: Avatar Motocross Madness is actually decent photo
PAX: Avatar Motocross Madness is actually decent
by Casey Baker

The Xbox 360 indie scene is filled with a ton of throwaway games and "experiences" that incorporate your Xbox Avatar into the gameplay. It's not surprising that Microsoft's own Avatar Motocross Madness for Xbox Live Arcade sits in a neglected corner at PAX next to the much-more-frequented Tomb Raider and Forza Horizon booths.

Admittedly, I walked by the empty game booth a few times before my curiousity got the best of me and I decided to finally take a look. In a few minutes of play, I got the impression that Avatar Motocross Madness might be a bit more robust than what you might expect.
