You know what time it is, folks. Well, maybe you don't, but I'm here to tell you: it's giveaway time. Last week Jeff reviewed Rocket Riot, the new Xbox Live Arcade release from Dutch developer CodeGlue that he apparently liked quite a bit. He also sat down for a quick look at the game, if you're unfamiliar with the whole concept of legless piratical pixel dudes flying around and shooting each other into smithereens. Not me, though; that pretty much describes my childhood.


 

Courtesy of THQ, we've got five (count 'em: 5) XBLA tokens to distribute among you. How do you secure one for yourself? Talk amongst yourselves in the comments! In one full revolution of the Earth--this time tomorrow, that is, 3pm Pacific--I'll jump into the comment thread and pick five random people to receive the codes.

Enough of my yapping. Go forth and comment!


WINNERS!

Sorry for the delay folks. Thanks to ubermod TheBeast, we now have an official, robot-powered way of selecting truly random users from everyone who commented. This will be a slightly more rigorous methodology than my old trick, "close my eyes and scroll up and down a bunch." Contests should be decided much more quickly using this method in the future.

And here, chosen by machine, are the winners.

The Riot, is about Rockets. Art Style looks pretty cool, the character select screen looks nothing short of epic.
