This week went full metal epic, stepped hard on the gas medal, shifted into seventh gear and then popped the nitrous cherry like a drunken prom night on a drag racing track, holding back nothing and letting it all hang out like a senior citizen nudist camp. And that's the softcore version of the news this week.

Microsoft went full-in on the Xbox One thanks to the battle-hardened and console-warrior ready Phil Spencer. This guy dropped bombs like a B-29 over Baghdad. The Xbox One is getting a price-cut. The Kinect is getting kicked out of the box like a deadbeat dad who stopped paying child support. Netflix and other streaming apps will no longer be behind the Xbox Live Gold paywall, and that's all just in one freaking day. That's not even talking about Far Cry 4: Liberace Edition and Halo: Master Chief Collection.

Like I said, this week went full metal meth-head with the news, so you better duck-tape your butt to the seat. Strapped your man-titties down hard and equip your flameproof jock-strap, because we're about to go on a rocket-busting ride in this May 17th, 2014 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.

Deep Down Beta Due This Summer
While Microsoft is still struggling to find an identity for the Xbox One, Sony and Capcom have confirmed that the multiplayer dungeon crawler, Deep Down will be heading into beta this summer. New promotional material has become available for The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 3. New details have also emerged for Battlefield 4's big DLC update called Dragon's Teeth (not to be confused with Rooster Teeth).

Netflix Is Free On Xbox One
Yes, you can now access the Netflix app... for free. You no longer have to pay to access the app, but you still have to pay a subscription fee. More good news became available, as Warframe was recently updated with new content, some brand new screenshots became available for Dragon Age: Inquisition, and a new Kickstarter has gotten underway that teaches anyone how to make a game from start to finish called Ultimate GameDev Tutorial. Additionally, Borderlands 2 and a few other big games have become available this week on PlayStation systems.
