MyGamerCard.net Closes Down

MGC Logo

Due to a decrease in support from Microsoft and list of other problems, the popular site MyGamerCard.net is being shut down. The site provided customizable Gamercards, in various shapes and sizes, as well as slices of other related information.

Here's part of their farewell message:

"...In the past few years, that love for community has been lost by Microsoft. The closure of customer-to-company community-centric interfaces (that weren't tech support (no disrespect towards the awesome @Xboxsupport!)) was a huge blow for Xbox fans. Especially those who really felt like they had a connection to the company they were spending their disposable income on. Similarly, the Xbox Community Developer Program – the program that was essentially created for MyGamerCard and a select few similarly broad-minded community projects – stagnated, with extremely few updates or new data features (despite constant requests), and waning communication as Xbox was not allocating any time to the program... Thank you again for your praises, suggestions, and criticisms; awards, interviews and invites; and Tweets, Friend Requests, emails, and posts. But most of all, thank you for being a part of MyGamerCard!"

You can find the rest of their farewell here. Leave a comment on your thoughts, or if you used MyGamerCard.net.

Gears of War 3 Beta Details Emerge

Marcus Fenix

Gears of War 3, undoubtedly one of the Xbox 360’s most anticipated games this year, not only receives a release date, but a multiplayer beta that will include exclusive extras for Gears heads to use in the retail copy upon release.

Gears 3 hits store shelves on 9/20, but if you can’t wait that long to get locked n’ loaded and ready for action, then maybe the multiplayer beta will serve as a little taste to tide you over until emergence day.

Microsoft and developer Epic Games have announced that the beta will take place sometime around mid-April. Aside from just playing the beta, the gamers will also have a chance to acquire a Gold Retro Lancer and Cole Train in classic Thrashball pads.

Elder Scrolls V Logo
Tweeted earlier today from Pete Hines (Vice-President for Bethesda Softworks), was a confirmation of this quest. The reward is lucrative; a code redeemable on Steam for all Bethesda games. To clarify, that's every Bethesda game - past, present, and future.

The challenge states that in order to receive a reward, you must have a baby born under the name Dovahkiin on the day of the Skyrim release date (11/11/11). Pete Hines also commented that the ideal time to start this quest was last Friday.

As with all quests there are also associated risks, and this one is no exception.
