The Xbox Live Arcade Awards are a really interesting way for gamers to connect with developers. They unveiled last year, with Bomberman Live taking home the crown for “best overall arcade game”. A new feature headlined this year is the ability to vote over your 360. It looks like this year is going to be a close one between Castle Crashers and Braid for the crown. Another interesting match-up is Bionic Commando: Rearmed against Mega Man 9 for “best classic/remake”. Without further ado, here are the nominees!

      Hey Matt I get so many comments to my wetsibe asking about you. The story could be about Dog The Bounty Hunter and the comments are about you. How the heck should I know anything about you? I write a comedy wetsibe for crying out loud! Maybe they think that Bath Crashers is a comedy? After hundreds of thousands of hits, not one person has asked me a question about me. It’s always, Matt Matt Matt maybe I oughta do a spoof story about you so I can put up the comments cause as is, there is no article to which I can attach the questions and comments about Matt Matt Matt it’s getting on my nerves.Fondest regardsDamien

      Great post, Elsie. The cover for The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is beautiful. It maethcs the impression I get from reading the blurb perfectly. I got goose bumps when I read the book description. I can’t wait to own it!And not to leave you out, of course, I love everything about Dualed, too, and am very excited to read. 2013 is shaping up to be an amazing year for YA!Congrats to both of you on your gorgeous books!

    How is War World not a nominee for best graphics?!?! I know the game was not that fun, but it looks better than most regular 360 titles!

    While I thought the graphics looked good, they skipped a lot, and they weren’t inspired models. If it were straight detail and looks, it should win though.
