XBL Content Roundup: January 13th & 14th, 2015

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
XBLA Delistings

The last time that this section made an appearance, we listed six titles that had been removed from the Xbox LIVE Arcade Games Store. While I only bring news of a single title this time, it could have implications for three others. Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter has been delisted and is no longer available for purchase. While the remaining three Serious Sam games remain unaffected, we recommend that you pick these up as soon as possible as they may also be at risk of removal.
