Xbox LIVE’s annual Summer of Arcade marks the release of four new downloadable games (1 each week) on Xbox LIVE every Wednesday in August, beginning with Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and concluding with the highly anticipated release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. To celebrate and give gamers a deeper look into the games, Microsoft Studios has teamed up with several popular YouTube gamers to host a live streaming gameplay event showcasing each week’s new release, and I thought you’d like to share the news with your readers.
Now one can assume that the timing of this has zero to do with the fact that my Birthday is in August (But then according to Selena, every night’s my Birthday if I party like that!). I have a little ego, so I will say they knew and planned their activities accordingly. To celebrate we have two codes for one month of XBox Live Gold to give away. To win, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and address. In the Subject line put “XBox Live Contest.” One winner will be selected Friday, August 30th. Be sure to sign up for our twitter feed at twitter.com/eclipsemagazine and like our Facbook Page at facebook.com/eclipsemagazine (I promise at some point I will get it working properly.)
