Microsoft gets to sign up new Xbox Live users, and Nintendo gets a well-respected service with limited control on its popular game platform - it's a win-win. Sometimes, those announcements don't do much to excite fans.

Especially with the upcoming "pay $1 for 3 months of Game Pass" offer. Unbelievably, Resident Evil 5 first released all the way back in 2009 on the previous generation of consoles, and features Chris Redfield and his new partner Sheva Alomar heading to Africa investigate an outbreak. Players that missed out on The Walking Dead when it first hit the scene will now be able to play the games first three seasons through Microsoft's subscription service, and I would be amazed if the games fourth and final season didn't also hit the Game Pass soon.
