Very nice thread, well done. Will definitely be a welcome sight to get one of these every month (no pressure).

I really do hope Minecraft drops this month. They've been extremely light on the details but I'm hoping for some pleasant surprises, mostly dedicated servers (please lord let there be servers) for hosting worlds even if they require a rental fee.

Also the Project Spark beta should be dropping sometime in the next week or two I hope. I believe they've sent it off to certification at this point.

I don't believe Minecraft will actually come out on the Xbox One just yet, because there have been no updates on it lately.

But I want to believe.

I have been trying to track down D4 information, and nail down Minecraft.
Can't find anything new about D4, maybe ask Spencer.
Minecraft sources say March, but no solid date.

I can leave the tile, make it blank or put something else in its place.
Similarly, I can't find a solid date for DR: Collection.

Replace it with Fashion with Phil Spencer

Also Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z comes out on the 18th

It seems like the XB1 and PS4 versions will be coming at or near the same time as TU14 but the last thing they've said was it needs "a few weeks" before it's ready for certification.

And if you're really hungry for information they've released a few screenshots of what we can expect, including images of the XB1 and PS4 versions. All in all it seems to be equivalent to version 1.3.1 of the PC with things like villager trading and jungle/desert temples.

Sorry for derailing the thread into Minecraft but for anyone interested I'll just drop some links and leave it at that.

You'd think if Minecraft were coming out this month, we'd here it nonstop right? But I have not heard a peep, maybe it's getting pushed back?

Also, TITANFALL. I need to go to the launch event.

I can easily change the graphics.
And the last Dead Rising 3 DLC is most likely out this month too.

What about SSZ?

March is all about Titanfall for me.
And maybe Metal Gear Rising, but I've got to get through that series first.

10 more days til it drops, exciting.
I'm looking forward to some ID@Xbox games launching, just curious to see how they highlight from GDC and directly on xbox One.

It's going to be a tough one alongside titanfall and metal gear.

Great thread as always Malfcn, keep up the good work.

The directors cut of strike suit zero is a reworked version of the PC game.
PC version of which is slated for May.
The developers have said they have worked this past year against the feedback/reviews from the PC community, uprezzed textures, new lighting effects, tweaked gameplay and changed dialogue for story pacing.
Also it includes DLC add on story and some extra strike suits.

Will be curious to see how it reviews against older PC version.

Microsoft introduces 24 month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions:

http://www.videogamer.com/news/microsoft_introduces_24_month_xbox_live_gold_subscriptions.html
Microsoft appears to have introduced a new 24 month option for Xbox Live, offering a 2 year subscription to Xbox Live Gold for £59.99.

The Titanfall-branded 24 month card is available to purchase at GAME, and offers a £20 saving over buying two 12 month subscriptions individually.

Xbox Live Gold typically costs £39.99 for 12 months.

How did I forget about Fulgore? That may replace a tile! Also I can't really update the OP from my mobile now, it can't load all the bbcode.

This is going to be a huge month.

In for South park and Titanfall...
Lots and lots of Titanfall.
(And i guess bioshock infinite DLC as well as the headset adapter, with optical output now working with the new update, i can finally use my astros again)

March is all about Titanfall for me, too.

Based on the schedule so far, I think The Last Agent should be available on Mar 11, but I'm hoping maybe they bump it up to Mar 4 or at least Mar 7 instead.

Hopefully Fulgore is released before the 31st. I expect the matches to be flooded with him though. Forget about that Jago army.

Great OP and thread. I'm happy the Xbox One is starting to get into it's stride with the game line up and firmware feature updates. To be honest mine has mostly been collecting dust since launch :(

That's all about to change though! I can't wait for Titanfall and also Trials Fusion the month after. Hopefully we will see some good indie games soon and maybe Minecraft. Either way there's more than enough to see me through to E3 and the start of the holiday line up, anything else in the meantime will be a bonus!

I am really struggling right now.. my X1 died.. off to repair and based on the update via Xbox.com I will not get it back till after TItanfall...

How accurate are their dates on there? Anyone have any experience with the repair process of X1? I was really hoping this would not be like last gen where I had a backup xbox but I may break down and buy a backup if the track record of their site is accurate.

Should be a good month with Titanfall and still have to play PvsZ and Thief.
