If you are having a problem locating your Xbox videos uploaded from Upload Studio. Try checking your “Pictures” folder for a folder called “Xbox Game DVR”. Why is it in the “Pictures” folder? Your guess is as good as mine. They are moving ‘pictures’, so maybe that’s why.
If you love Columbo, as you should, but don’t own all 69 episodes and all 24 television movies yet, then today is your day. For under 60 dollars (regularly $150) you can have 34 DVDs shipped to your door and have nearly 6000 minutes of the best detective television series ever aired.

Project Spark is an ambitions game creation tool that has been in the works for two years. Being a Microsoft first party title, it appears to draw comparisons to Sony’s Little Big Planet. But those familiar with Microsoft Research will instantly recognize Project Spark’s roots, Xbox Live Indie Game and PC release Kodu.
You can sign up for early access to Project Spark through the beta program at JoinProjectSpark.com
Project Spark is coming for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows 8.

As a gamer, it’s nice to have developers that you can count on for creating great games and content. Quite often, developers become known for a certain game series or genre. And so it becomes easy to think of DICE as “the Battlefield guys”, or Bethesda as “the action/adventure RPG guys”. Likewise, it would have been easy to think of Zen Studios as “the pinball guys”. And sure, their most notable work, at least the most prolific, has been Pinball FX and it’s spawn. But today, Zen Studios carves a new notch into its development record with 2D physics-destruction tower defense action game (it’s hard to put this one into a specific genre) CastleStorm.
CastleStorm has several modes of play including Versus multiplayer and Co-op modes. I suggest playing through the campaign first as a sort of tutorial and to unlock other modes and features.
CastleStorm is Zen Studios’ latest game for Xbox Live Arcade, releasing May 29th. In the meantime you can see the official Developer Diary and see the many ways your troops will perish in CastleStorm.
Special note: The video name drops Waterflame, whom created music for CastleStorm, and whom we interviewed.
4A Games’ Metro 2033 was a smash hit in 2010, impressing PC gamers with its incredible graphics and unique gameplay, which bucked the bombastic trend that permeated the ever more explosive shooters of that era. The story, too, was a cut above the rest, having been adapted from a Russian novel that went viral online before becoming a best-selling published work. Unsurprisingly, a sequel was commissioned, and now players can experience it on Steam. Called Metro: Last Light, this long-awaited sequel offers a direct continuation of Metro 2033′s story, putting the player in the shoes of Ranger Artyom once more. Having done what was asked of him in 2033, regardless of the repercussions, Artyom must now explore long-forgotten sections of Moscow’s underground metro railway to confront his greatest fears, and to save what’s left of his post-apocalyptic world.
