Well, the official "Emergence Day" is here and brings with it some events and free goodies on XBox Live.  The first two downloads (theme and gamerpic) are available for today only, the videos will stick around.  Text stolen from Major Nelson.

To me the GamerPic is a bit too dark to see well on the console, but it looks decent when seen on xbox.com so that may be my VGA connection or something.  The theme looks nice but I'm not too big on having backgrounds on the console. 

Download some goodies and then get back to gunning down more of those Locust bastards. icon_biggrin

Grabbed the pic and the theme.  I think I'm gonna stick with my Family Guy pic now (Stewie > GoW) and same with the theme.  At least the theme doesn't overwhelm the text, unlike the Penny Arcade Ultraskin theme.

the theme actually isn't bad, although i'm still not a big fan of pictures cluttering up the background of my dashboard in general.  the exclusive gamer pic is a little disappointing though...dark picture that's a little hard to see even on my big TV.  the CliffyB video isn't a big deal (mostly PR fluff), and i'm still downloading the big HD gameplay video right now...

If you are into that sort of thing, the Game With Fame thing with Dave Mustaine of Megadeth starts in less than a half hour and the Epic guys start at 4pm Pacific.  Details in that first link of the original post. 

I haven't even tried the multiplayer yet (although I did finally get Live Gold), so no way in hell I'd attempt to hold my own against the Epic guys.
