XBLA Content Roundup: October 23rd, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Following on from yesterday's new feature, the XBL Content Roundup, today marks the first edition of Wednesday's new roundup. Every Wednesday we intend to bring you a compiled list of all of the Xbox LIVE Arcade games, DLC and demos that are released on that day. We say "intend" because this week's roundup gets off to a bit of a slow start; we have... drumroll please... one XBLA game.
