Wave goodbye to Bigby
So you're browsing your local retailer's Xbox One and Xbox 360 section and have no idea what new games were released this week. No one seems willing to help and you feel alone and scared. Surely, there must be a way — an easy way — to get the info on the latest releases. Rest your worried head young Spartan, because at pX we got you covered on what's hitting retail stores and the Games Store.
Telltale's gripping episodic adventures series based off of Bill Willingham's Fable comic book concludes this week with episode five, "Cry Wolf". While the fourth episode, "In Sheep's Clothing," received a somewhat mixed reception, the season finale is being called one of the best episodes Telltale has ever conceived. It also rewards players who have been playing since episode one all the way back in October. With season one now available in its entirety, it might be a good time to experience this awesome story.

Banjo Games Bundle (XBLA)
It may not be a new Banjo game, but perhaps this bundle package means something could be brewing regarding this beloved franchise at Microsoft Studios. You can grab both Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie for $15, which is a 50% discount from buying both individually. This is a great value for those than never played these on N64. If you're looking for some good ol' Mario platforming that doesn't star Mario, then get downloading.

This is a slow week for Xbox and from looking at the release schedule ahead, July won't be regarded as a great month for new releases. However, some of us here at pX have yet to play any of The Wolf Among Us and have been waiting patiently for all of the episodes to be released before diving in. And as for Banjo — well, you can't have enough Banjo, right?
