The XBox Version is Finally Up-to-Date

The Steam patch from several months ago has finally made it onto the XBox.  This includes:

- Spanish!
- Four new music tracks from Sounds of Circumstance
- The option to repair damaged buildings, or take over vacant ones (To use this, equip Toolbox and target the desired building).
- A bunch of minor bug fixes.

We also got some rather sad news from Microsoft - they are sunsetting XBLIG.  But at least they're giving everyone plenty of advance warning about it.  We will continue to be able to publish games, and release patches, until September 2016.  And you'll continue being able to buy them until September 2017.  After that you'll still be able to play the ones you've bought, but you won't be able to buy new ones.

So I'm still aiming to get online co-op into the XBox version before it sunsets.  Once I've got it working on Steam it shouldn't be too hard to port it over.
