Wreckateer Free for Xbox Live 10 Year Anniversary

Kinect-powered destruction... free!

To celebrate 10 years of Xbox Live, Microsoft is offering members a freebie of their recently released title, Wreckateer. Using Kinect, Wreckateer encourages players to use their arsenal of special canon balls to destroy a set of medieval structures housing enemy goblins.

Eager Live members can sign in to and go to the game's page to "purchase" the title and queue it up for download later. Of course, the more traditional approach through the Xbox 360 itself will work as well.

Be sure to check out our review on the title for more information, but no harm can come of a quick free download, even if you don't have a Kinect!

There are some additional deals to be had as part of this celebration.  I'm using the opportunity to finally buy Bastion, which is half off.

EarthBound Review Rewind

Remember that silly old trope in teen movies where the nerdy “plain Jane” character magically becomes super attractive just by removing her glasses? It was a bit like that with EarthBound- an RPG that was largely ignored when released on the Super NES in its twilight years. Nintendo’s ill-conceived ad campaign telling the player that “this game stinks” didn’t do it any favors either. The game’s overtly humorous kid-friendly facade was unusual for its time and quickly written off as ugly and boring by all but the most accepting of RPG fans. But thanks to the positive praise in gaming forums years later, it picked up steam and eventually became lauded as one of the best on the Super NES. Much like the bespectacled character in every 90s teen comedy, it was as if EarthBound removed its glasses. Nothing was different about it- just our perception of what was already there.
