Video Games: The XBox Live Shocktober Sales Fest Is On


Every year XBox Live hosts its very own Halloween sale spectacular, aptly titled Shocktober Sale, where they drop the prices of a few select games. This year is looking to be quite a worthwhile one for us XBLA connoisseurs if I do say so, with 4 Arcade titles, one DLC, and one from Games On Demand. And best of all, you don’t have to be an XBox Live Gold Member to get these deals as they’re open to everyone. The Shocktober Sale runs from October 22nd thru November 5th, and can be found in the XBox Live Marketplace. Bring on the games…
