Update: Congrats toHeadcrabs, Tyler H, Chuck_Bosworth, and Hitman Bravo.
If there is one thing that Awesomenauts has reminded us of it’s the fact that the ‘80s were awesome. In fact, even the fictional ‘80s characters of Awesomenauts seem way cool. Despite some earlier uncertainty, Awesomenauts launched on Wednesday, May 2. The title looks to try to revamp the Massive Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre on consoles. Outside of a brief flirtation with Monday Night Combat, MOBA has largely kept to its PC roots (think major success League of Legends and one of my personal favorites, Super Monday Night Combat). If you’re unfamiliar with the genre we highly recommend checking our XBLA Primer on MOBA. If you are on the fence with buying the game, check out our review.
We were huge fans of the game at PAX East so when the opportunity came around to throw a giveaway related to the game we were ecstatic. We’ve teamed up with Ronimo and Sonic Picnic for a pretty exciting giveaway totally deserving of the ‘80s: we will be giving away EIGHT vinyl records (pictured above). On the front side, the record contains an exclusive version of the complete Awesomenauts theme song and a fitting drum & bass remix. The B side contains a mega mix of all the songs in the game.
FOUR of these records will be given away right here on the site. A FIFTH record will be through our sister site Game Music Fans. Another (SIXTH) will be through PSN Fans. We will keep you updated as those contests go live. The Game Music Fans contest is live here.
The last TWO will be available through Twitter and Facebook respectively. We want to get the word out about this, so everyone who likes our post about the contest on Facebook and everyone who shares the following tweet will be entered for a chance to win a copy.

The contest will run until Friday May 18th. You may enter once on each website.
