Xbox Live update: what's new this week?

Mass Effect 3 DLC, Guardians of Middle-earth, Skyrim's Dragonborn

This week's Xbox Live Marketplace Deal sees the service returning to Liberty City on the cheap - Grand Theft Auto 4 add-ons The Lost & Damned and Ballad of Gay Tony could be yours for the price of a brand-new Black Ops 2 map pack. In terms of new content, the main event kicks off next week in the form of Mass Effect 3's Omega and Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC packs. Can you hold out till then, or do the below savings make your wallet rumble?

In kookier news, there's a game called Sonic The Fighters on XBLA. It's the only Xbox 360 game I know of where you can punch Amy Rose in the face. Do try this at home.
