In celebration of their upcoming 100th episode, Gamertag Radio is giving away 5 copies of Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. Command & Conquer 3 is already a decent RTS game, and we imagine it's even better when it's free. For your chance to win, head over to Gamertag Radio and read the rules for entry (hint: it's super easy). While you're at it, you might as well enter into their mystery giveaway as well. What are they giving away? How the hell should we know? It's a mystery, silly!
Godfree and the GTR crew posted up their coverage of the Street Trace NYC Community Event in New York City (naturally). They've got a variety of flavors, such as Episode #98 of their weekly podcast, the above video, or the slew of pictures from the event. All in all it was a big success, and apparently had some the best pizza Godfree's ever had the pleasure of eating. We're green with envy, as we're geographically challenged in regards to NYC based events and we love us some pizza. So give it a watch, listen or look, and hopefully you'll enjoy the game itself once it hits Xbox Live Arcade soon.
So, have you played Jetpac Refuelled? Did you like it? By chance, did you like it, but not quite enough to spend 400 points on it? Maybe you just like free stuff. If any of this applies to you, head on over to Gamertag Radio, where Godfree and the gang are giving away a free copy of Jetpac Refuelled. Entering the contest is a snap, but you'll have to head over there for yourself to find out how. Hit the "read" link for the complete lowdown. Don't forget to tell GTR who sent you.
Godfree from Gamertag Radio just sent us ten new screenshots of recently announced title Tetris Evolution. And everyone will be glad to know that the game looks just like Tetris with high definition background graphics. It kind of reminds us of Lumines Live with the various themes to each level, but without the moving backgrounds (or so we think they don't move). With up to four players duking it out at once here's hoping that Tetris Evolution turns out to be a prettier version of the game we love and doesn't cost the full retail price of a Xbox 360 game. Because as we see it now, charging $60 for the game would be outrageous.
Worms, without a doubt, is the most highly anticipated Arcade title right now (at least it is judging from the comments around here). If you're even a little bit interested, we suggest you check out the latest episode of GTR for the interview. Also included in the show are interviews with the Yankees' Johnny Damon, Snoop Dogg (no, seriously), and the developers of Bullet Witch. Hit the "read" link to check it out.
There is a new trailer out for Def Jam Icon, the upcoming hip hop fighting game from EA. Given the game's ... eccentric premise, the trailer is drop dead serious. In fact, we'd wager that more than a few people will be expecting a completely different game after watching it. The game, for those that don't know, is a fighting game with a heavy emphasis on music. The background changes and interacts with the beats of the music. In fact, you choose your characters music track before each match. If you're winning, then your track will play. This can be advantageous for the player that utilizes environmental hazards at the right time (check out Joystiq's impressions for more info). It's an interesting idea, and hopefully one that translates into a fun game.
The trailer, however, shows off something more like a gang drama. In fact, there isn't even a hint in the trailer that Def Jam Icon is a fighting game, and an unrealistic one at that. It's a nice trailer and everything, but it's a little misleading. As a service to prospective players, we've embedded both the new trailer and some footage from the game after the break (second video NSFW).
Our compatriots at Gamertag Radio recently went to the NBA Street Community Day sponsored by EA, and they've put up a barrage of new content to cover it. Check out the video above for a developer rundown of the new dunks in NBA Street Homecourt (including some monster dunks that are worth double points). You can check out another video at GTR's site. GTR also has two new audio sessions available, one covering the day's events, and another with the developers themselves. We've said it before, sports game aren't for everyone, but this one gives us fond flashbacks of NBA Jam. Watch the video above, listen to the audio, and surround yourself in NBA goodness.
GTR also got a chance to chat with Old Grandma Hardcore, so be sure to check it out.
Update: Clarified the wording regarding the wireless guitar.
Earlier this week, we revealed the guest list for the 2006 Xbox Community Awards. Including Xbox personalities like Major Nelson, Trixie, and Peter Moore, it looks to be a good show. Today, we can finally confirm the date the show will actually become available. The show will be available for download on December 15th (next Friday), so get those RSS readers ready. You may recall that we received a couple nods ourselves, and we are positively atwitter with anticipation (atwitter we say!). Be sure to check out the show when it hits next week.
