Things like a game that was delayed for a while/just went back into a full production mode, a new Xbox hardware that was just announced, etc.
Either way if you have the time and don't mind helping out you should post here.

the 2nd free game is halo 3 , im sure it needs little to no explanation and will be downloaded by the hundreds.
ascended:the hand of kul (ftp) action/rpg game is also free atm, a solid beta with a few issue but nothing makes up for mistakes like the word free :p

be on the look out for destiny beta codes if you use facebook or twitter a lot, bungie said they would be giving away a bunch of codes randomly throughout the week on thoses apps,they are for the xbox,ps3 and i think the next gen.

gta v did well in japan this last week, the ps3 killed the xbox in sales 360k+ to like 26k but regardless it seems it's a hit over there too.

a little bit of delayed news, i almost feel stupid for not posting this last week, the "games with gold" program that started during the summer and has given away 2 free games amonth will continue to do so permently, MS announced at the beggining of the month that the program will continue beyond the release of the xbox one next month.
imo this is great news for xbl gold members, 2 free games a month to keep permantly regardless of your current xbl membership,i don't know much about the ps3 free game program but this is a great announcment.

EA has stopped the new free to play command & conquer game in development by victory games, the announcement also means that victory studios is closing, ea has said that all the players that spent cash on the "alpha" testing phase are going to get it back.

Telltale has announced that season 2 of the point & click "walking dead" series will be released later this year, they also provided a handfull of screen shots and said that you will be playing as clementine this time around.

among the other announcements that EA made was a big one about the "titanfall" series, it will be pc/xbox only for the lifespan of the series,sorry ps3 fans it looks like your out of luck there.
