    Yet again Microsoft puts in a cool extras and does nothing to talk them up in any way.  Destination Arcade has 2 avatar awards, a totally ordinary white logo hoodie, and a little purple dragon prop (which is now the 3rd dragon avatar award).   Just run it for the hoodie, and select any fantasy game (like Magic the Gathering or Altered Beast) to earn the dragon.
     
    I think Avatar Awards are cool, but I really don't understand why nobody talks them up.  They cost money to make (although in many cases, not much), and some are pretty neat.  It's like adding a new game mode and not telling anyone.  Xbox PR is so messed up.  Mr. Hyrb does a good job, but I think they need to hire him a team.  Sorry, editorializing.  In short, free dragon.
