Xbox Live Marketplace Update for 10/31/12

Things are getting spooky for Halloween this week on the Xbox Live Marketplace, starting with a Halloween Skin pack for the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft. As though Creepers weren’t scary enough on their own, right?

A little less creepy is the Xbox Live Arcade release of Home Run Stars. It’s joined by Pid, an action-adventure puzzle game, and Pool Nation, a game about the fine sport of billiards. Each of these is 800 Microsoft Points.

New game add-ons this week include the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed 3 (2400 MSPoints), Sleeping Dogs‘ “Nightmare in North Point” pack (560 MSPoints), and WWE ’13‘s “Fan Axxess” for 1,600.

Until November 5th, the current Deals of the Week for Xbox Live Gold members are from Bethesda and include:

  • Oblivion Varies by region
  • Shivering Isles 600 (50% off)
  • Knights of the Nine 200 (50% off)
  • Skyrim GonD Varies by region
