Xbox Live Arcade

Squeezing into the new month is a Xbox Live Arcade promotion garnering attention to accumulation. From April 1 and on, Xbox Live Reward Members gain a feature of “MyPunchRewards,” which acts more like another Summer of Arcade promo. Of the incentives, when it mentions “Arcade” game, it means any sort. Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater , or Dust: An Elysian Tail are all fair game no matter the date or price (400 MP and up).

  1. Play 20 hours of any combination of arcade games, receive a free avatar item
  2. Purchase any four arcade games for 400 Microsoft Points or more from Xbox LIVE, receive a one month Xbox LIVE Gold membership
  3. Spend 3200 Microsoft Points on arcade games, receive 800 Microsoft Points in return.

Aside from BattleBlock Theater, seems like Microsoft’s going for a purge-worthy sale for a very lacking Spring release schedule. Gone are the slapdash “Buy these 4 mid-tier Xbox Live Arcade games and get points back” of GameFeast and House Party for serviceable and shrug-worthy deals. Here’s a trailer if you don’t like words.
