OXCGN’s Trials Evolution: Origin of Pain DLC Review
Like riding a bike with no saddle

Origin of Pain adds more content to everyone’s real favourite Xbox exclusive with 36 new tracks (both regular and Supercross), brand new costumes for your biker, new skill games, a new vehicle and extra track creator objects in the triple figures.
With all that value, you’d expect this hefty chunk of DLC to cost you an equally hefty figure.
Save that loans website for later; Origin of Pain will only set you back an unbelievably reasonable 400 MSP.
Why, Ubisoft, are you trying to seduce me…?

OXCGN’s Deadlight XBLA Review
Sleep With The Light On
by Chris Fox

Zombies. I love them. You love them.
But just like any thing that we like, too much of it can get as sickly and unbearable as any thing else.
Zombies in games, movies and any other form of geek media have been done to death (no pun intended), so what fresh meat can DeadLight bring to the table?
Well, it turns out a fair amount.
Join us, won’t you, as we turn back the clock to mid ’80s Seattle to once again face the undead, though not as we’ve known them.

Original Xbox Games Playable on Xbox 360
Nostalgia is something that often comes at the end of a console’s life cycle.
Remember the good old times, when we played ‘such and such’ on that old ‘this’ console? Especially if you are feeling a big jaded about current gaming trends, there may be the desire to return to former titles you’ve long abandoned.
Well if you have an Xbox 360 and the internet, you should be able to track down some of the old Xbox games from last gen that you can then insert into your 360 to play.
Of course many old titles are also available from Live, but if you prefer your games as ‘hard copies’, here are the ones you can get.
No need to try and find a retro-Xbox console that still works.
My personal pick? Thief 3: Deadly Shadows and Timesplitters 2. I love those games!
