Microsoft is taking some of the sting out of the returning school season by offering up a ton of great Xbox Live Arcade content at deeply discounted prices. Starting …
The 12 Days of XBLA was an amazing success and we hope to bring you all more contests like this in the years to come. Thanks to all of our awesome community members for participating with over 1700 entries in a twelve day span, that’s quite an impressive turnout. And a huge thanks to the fine people at Microsoft and all the developers/publishers that donated all the prizes. Without them, none of this would be possible.
With that said, let’s get to the moment we have all been waiting for. After all the dust settled and we ran our random number generator for one last time in 2011, we are now proud to announce @OnyxPrimal as the winner of the Grand Prize worth over $150! Congratulations, you have won a copy of the following XBLA games:

Mercury Hg was developed by Eiconic Games and published by Ignition Entertainment. The game was released October 4, 2011 for 400 MSP.
Playing with mercury in real life can be a cool experiment, but it’s all fun and games until you get mercury poisoning. Thankfully the budget-priced Mercury Hg comes along to give us the fun of mercury in a safe, poison free environment. For the first 400 MSP game to come along in a long while, this game is so good you’d think it cost more. Awesome gameplay mixed with colorful graphics and a well-implemented music feature is a great way to have fun … with science.
