xboxlivelogoa4This week’s Xbox Live update brings hip hop styling to player avatars.

  • Men can choose denim shorts, jeans with print, a striped visor beanie, a diamond stud earring, and square stone rings.
  • Women can pick out an oversized jacket with chains, short shorts, a sports vest and diamond stud earrings.

All the clothes are free, and will remain available for the foreseeable future.

The action-adventure title Lode Runner is also available for 800 MS Points ($10.00). It features 2D action, 3D graphics, “lodes of modes”, 220 levels, multiplayer options, puzzles, and a level editor all weighing in at 512MB.

    Anyone here actually use these or have any kind of interest at all in their avatars?

    I’d love to see some proper updates i.e. stop the infernal “freezing” issue when looking at friend lists etc. Oh and MKV support might be nice.
