Ramping up for GSL with Games for Gold!

Hello there, fellow X360A peeps!


Having finally recovered from PAX, I thought it was time to let you know what is happening in the community in September. We have been playing GTA IV all week getting ready for the launch of GTA V, so if you want to join in the fun click here and come join us. For the rest of the month we have games lined up that coincide with the free Games for Gold and a little fighting game here and there along the way.
  • Sept 9-22: Two weeks of Rainbow Six Vegas (personally, I still think this is one of the top five games to release on the 360.) Vegas is free from Sept 16-30 for Gold members, so grab the digital version if you don't own the physical copy and come join us!
  • Sept 16-22: Brawling with super heroes? Oh, yeah! Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Sept 23-29: Magic: The Gathering is free (well, the 2013 version is) during the first half of the month, and we will be playing all of the Magic games the last week of the month, so if you don't own any of them already, make sure you download the free one before the 16th!

Gamerscore League and PS3T

The sign-ups for our annual GSL are open (click here for the forum). As an added twist this year, we are also competing against the teams over at our sister site PS3T. We are competing against them based on number of achievements unlocked compared to number of trophies unlocked, so if you are interested in helping our community try to kick their community's butt, come sign up!

Artist of the Month

Are you artistic? Come join the Artist of the Month competition here. Last month's winning entry by Gackt is here (make sure you read the text, it is hilarious and likely why he won!) All of the entries from August can be seen here.

Vegas was one of the first games I played on xbox 360. I'm currently playing other games like Diablo 3 and Spliter cell Black List.
