If you are in the Northeastern part of North America, you’ve got quite a weekend in store. Winter Storm Nemo is your unscheduled guest this weekend and she (he?) may leave quite the mess upon departure. Be sure to read up on how to deal with a Blizzard. Assuming you’ve taken the proper precautions to keep your family pets and home safe as the storm blows through (and your power remains on!) I wanted to suggest a few things to do on Xbox LIVE this weekend.
- Finally finish that game that has been sitting in your console for a few weeks (months?)
- Play some of the over 300 free game demos we have available for download from Xbox LIVE
- Have a favorite game you wanto jump back into? The Xbox LIVE Marketplace has over 11 THOUSAND game add-ons available. There may be a new mission, map pack (and more) available for your favorite game.
- Rent a movie or watch a TV show on the Xbox Video Marketplace (Skyfall is on my list to watch this weekend)
- Need more to do? We have a full list of video partner apps like Amazon Instant Video, CinemaNow, HBO GO, EPSN and many many more.
- Games Games Games. THOUSANDS of Xbox LIVE Arcade games and Indy Games are available for download…and every single one comes with a demo so you can try before you buy. All without heading out into the Snow.
- TV being used by other members of the house? Keep yourself from getting cabin fever by playing some of our free web games (Hint: Play Wordament and get free Gamerscore,)
These are just a few, feel free to add your own in the comments below.
Wherever you are stay safe, have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Xbox LIVE.
