Today on Xbox Live: Help kids & game with Extra Life

I’ve always found it hard to imagine what life is like in other people’s shoes. Do the people that I consider normal do the same things that I do? Do they look at technology the same way? Do they see they see beyond the controller and wires of a gaming console and imagine what it can do? I’ll never understand those people, but there is a group of gamers who does. Each year they work hard for weeks lining up sponsors and play spaces and donations so that they can play games for hours and donate all the money to children’s charities.

‘Legend of Korra’ is half off in Xbox Video

By  •  Xbox Video, Deals

Every so often a television show comes along that changes your outlook on the medium. In the case of Avatar: Legend of Korra that medium is cartoons. Forget the garbage that airs on Cartoon Network, Legend of Korra is deep and thought-provoking and has the best animation we’ve seen yet in a cartoon. You don’t have to take my word for it though. Earlier this week Microsoft slashed prices on the first three seasons of Legend of Korra in the Xbox Video Store.

The Culture: We Need More Allowance: Music from The Beats & ‘Doug’

By  •  The Culture

In the 1990s there wasn’t a single television show more popular than Doug. The show, which featured a cast of middle and high-schoolers from all walks of life, was all about the things kids cared about.

Doug has long gone off the air, but the spirit of The Beet’s music will live on. We’ve collected the best of the band’s tunes over the years and a few extras.
