XBL Content Roundup: February 14th, 2014

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Is there a better way to celebrate Valentine's day than with new Xbox LIVE content? There probably is, but you'll have to do with this for now. We have a new XBLA release (which comes with accompanying DLC), a free piece of retail DLC and an Xbox One title that finally makes it outside of North America.

Arcade Games

The Xbox One version of this title was released on November 22nd with the new console, but those who aren't early adopters of the new technology have had to wait until today to play the Xbox LIVE Arcade version. Will this version garner better reviews?

LocoCycle
Developer: Twisted Pixel Games
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Size: 1.99 GB
Price: US$9.99 / £7.99 / €9.99 / AU$13.45 / ¥1,000
[THIS GAME REQUIRES YOU TO ALSO DOWNLOAD THE FREE “DATAPACK” DLC IN ORDER TO PLAY] Newly self-aware, I.R.I.S. the martial-arts wielding assassin motorcycle, has begun a cross-continent escape to freedom. I.R.I.S.’s only ally is her engineer Pablo, who gets conscripted into the quest after his pant leg gets caught in her chassis. Hunted by the psychopathic motorcycle S.P.I.K.E. and a multinational weapons cartel, I.R.I.S. and Pablo face long odds, but they are riding for ‘Murica and freedom - so how can they lose?
XBLA DLC without Achievements

As mentioned above in the description for the game itself, Lococycle requires players to download the following DLC to be able to play the title. Be aware that it is a rather large 1.98 GB download.

LocoCycle
• "Datapack" – FREE
This free download contains art assets and videos that could not fit within the original LocoCycle download. Installation is necessary in order to play the full game.
Retail DLC without Achievements

As this was advertised as an update, we wondered whether this would be an in-game download or whether it would hit the Games Store. It did the latter. Be sure to download this if you want access to limited-availability in-game accessories.

Grand Theft Auto V
• "The Valentine’s Day Massacre Special" – FREE
It’s Valentine’s Day in Los Santos, and nothing says “I love you” like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun. Dress to the nines in a new Double Breasted Suit, a 1920’s flapper dress, or bare it all in some sexy underwear and paint the town red in a classically-inspired new ride, the Albany Roosevelt. All items are available for a limited time, pick them up now to keep them in your inventory forever. Update content. The latest title update is required to use this content. Grand Theft Auto V required to play.
Xbox One Games

This title actually released last week in North America but I will admit that I missed it. Now that it has been released in Europe, here it is:

The LEGO Movie Videogame (Xbox One)
Size: 6.53 GB
Price: US$59.99 / £49.99 / €59.99
Join Emmet and an unlikely group of resistance fighters in their heroic quest to thwart Lord Business’ evil plans—a mission that Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously unprepared for. It’s a wild ride with a surprising mix of over 90 playable characters including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Green Ninja, Gandalf, Shakespeare, Cleopatra and more.
