XBLA... Friday?: October 5th, 2012

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
In nearly a year writing up this weekly article, I've never seen this before; Xbox LIVE Arcade will be seeing two releases on Friday, but none on Wednesday. Also, this post may get a last-second addition as rumors are swirling that "Episode 4" of The Walking Dead might find its way to the marketplace this week, as well. That's not yet confirmed, but when we know, you'll know.
