Giveaway: Summer of Arcade Game Pack

WINNER ANNOUNCED: Congratulations to Shaw E. for winning the full set of 2012′s Summer of Arcade titles! An email has been sent to the associated email address. If no response is received by this time on Wednesday, a new winner will be selected (if no update on Wednesday, the prize has been claimed). Thanks for participating, and good luck in the future!

This year’s XBLA Summer of Arcade promotion came to a close with last week’s release of Dust: An Elysian Tail, which was an absolutely refreshing and beautiful title. While this event, like most events, had its weak spots, it performed admirably overall. A blast from the past, an adaptation and improvement on a popular aviary mobile game, a game about zombies that didn’t add to the oversaturation of zombies, a multiplayer only title with an interesting concept, and one man’s dream game come to life all contributed in one way or another to the success (and success it was) of this year’s promotion. Now, with our recent string of giveaways and contests, it may seem odd that we’ve only given away one Summer of Arcade game. Well, that’s because we were gathering one code for each game and setting them aside for this one giveaway.

One winner will win codes for all five of this year’s Summer of Arcade titles.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The giveaway starts now and will run through 12:01am EST on Monday, August 27th (9:01pm Sunday, August 28th). The winner will be announced on Monday. As always, keep in mind you can only take advantage of the full range of entries once. We will be disqualifying users that try to get around the system.

NOTE: Our comment system seems to have marked most of the comments up to this point as spam. I have manually approved all comments, and will continue to check and approve as they come in. If you don’t see your comment immediately, please rest assured that it was submitted.

About chris

Chris originally intended for Marooners' Rock (then called World of Meh!) to be nothing more than a personal online outlet for creative writing. As the featured writing became more and more video game related (and companies started sending free games), and as the number of authors increased, Chris took on the role of Editor-in-Chief to ensure that Marooners' Rock would never have an article about how awesome the N-Gage was, because it wasn't.

    I’m planning on Spending the most time playing Hybrid since I love interesting multiplayer shooters and once I get a feel for games like that, I just have to get good at them. There’s a good chance I could spend the most time on Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD though as it reminds me of when I used to play it on the Dreamcast years ago and I had a lot of fun with it.

    Wreckateer for one simple reason. My nephew! I love that little fella to bits, but because my sister is living so far away I only get to see him once in a while on the usual holidays, so I didn’t have to buy any kid games on my 360, since he always brought his DS or PSP along, which was more than enough entertainment for a few days.

    Due to a delicate family situation though the little guy is going to live with me for a while. I’m delighted, that that little bag of sunshine is going to enrich my life for more then a few days, but to say my games library isn’t exactly kids friendly is absolutely understated. I’m very busy locking up my little video game shop of horrors at the moment and I already bought a Kinect. I have planned a ton of trips like visits to museums and such, but even a hyperactive guy like me won’t be able to keep him busy 24/7. Besides there is always the chance the weather won’t play along to let him go play outside or, god forbid, that he might get sick. Anywho, he and I will be more than happy to have such a kid friendly and entertaining game like Wreckateer to kill some time and goblins!

    Thanks a lot for the chance to win not only Wreckateer but a whole bunch of games he and I could play together (Deadlight and Hybrid excluded of cause!)
