1942: Joint Strike, Eleventh Hour Giveaway

It’s time to take another giveaway ride powered by that magical TriXie Dust from Xbox and TriXie!  Some of you might just get the chance to take to the skies in this World War II flying shooter and blast everything in sight!  Eleven (11) of you are about to be struck with Xbox LIVE Arcade redeem codes for Capcom’s 1942: Joint Strike.  Yeah there were 12 but I kept one for myself you greedy pigs! (smile)

I present the Magnificent Eleven, Eleventh Hour Giveaway.  I always come up with the craziest names for these things I know.  Are you ready?  If so, then post a comment or send me a message via Xbox LIVE to get into the fun.

Each time the clock strikes 11:00AM & 11:00PM CST, someone will win.  I’ll pick two names when the clock strikes these exact times.  I’ll post the names here so keep the F5 handy.  The trick is to be here at those times because if you’re not, then the names get withdrawn and I’ll move on to the next 11th hour.  You have to be there to claim the code and you’ll have 1942 seconds (a little over a 1/2 hour) to claim it.  We’ll keep going at these two times each day until the codes are gone.

1942: Joint Strike is all about precision and calculated strikes so you have to play the part in order to score the win.  You get the whole “strikes” thing right?  Clock strikes.  Joint Strike.  I figured I’d add a different flavor this time.  And as always, be sure to hit TriXie up with a thanks and send her much Unscripted 360 love!

The first strike begins today!

  13. Awesome! Count me in!

  14. I would like a copy

  15. Does that mean here on U360 to claim it or at my Xbox 360 to claim it?

  16. @TX, it said here as in “here” lol. not there as in Xbox 360. besides, there’s no F5 key on your Xbox. ;)

  17. This sounds great. I really wanted 1942, but don’t have the funds right now.

  18. lol awesome. If I can figure out the timezone math I’m in

  19. @DB well hell, I’m always here… ;) Dude you have some of the coolest and wildest contest for the community. Who’s a rockstar? DEACON!

  20. Count me in for this :)

  21. I wanna win a free game!

  22. I want to win that game! It looks like an awesome shmup.

  23. Fun idea for a contest, put me in!

  24. w007 for shmups!

  25. …Yes please?

  26. Count me in! Would love to get to play the full version.

  27. Wait, so we have to be signed in at 11:00 or we have to post at 11:00?

  28. Nevermind, I just woke up so I’m not all here.

  29. the 11th hour is upon us. As i sit here at my desk at work, all I can do right now is have daydreams of planes flying over enemy territory and taking out anti-allies forces. I would LOVE to have this game under my XBLA arsenal!! USA!!USA!!USA!!USA!!

  30. Pick me please :)

  31. lol you guys are great!

  32. 11th Hour Giveaway lol. dude you come up with some pretty cool ways to give swag away i must admit.

    very original ways bro…

    big up to Trixie and Deac on this!

  33. I would like some Trixie Dust too:)

  34. and the play on “strikes” was teh awesome.

  35. I’m in.

  36. *drum roll*

  37. is that jeopardy I hear playing?

  38. Alex Trebek is on the clock :)

  39. i hope these dudes don’t confirm! lol 1942 second countdown is on for the first 11th hour strike. woot

  40. lol @ Halo Fan. well i hope they do. they should if they paid attention to the rules.

  41. I’m in as well.

  42. Your next draw will be 05:00 over here – I paid attention to the rules but am unlikely to be here at that time :D

  43. where are you located Otacon?

  44. I waited for the 1942 seconds to expire in hopes of my name popping up in the re-draw, if there is one.

    How will this work when someone doesn’t claim their prize?

  45. the unclaimed code gets tossed into the next 11th hour strike :) so there’ll be 3 names instead of 2 at the next strike.

  46. Well then, I will see you all at the strike of the 11th Hour.

    One more question, will we need to post again on this same news post closer to the 2nd Strike or will there be another post for us to register in for the 2nd strike?

    Awesome site by the way and a pretty cool idea for a contest. Keep it up.

  47. thx AbiosiS! and nope, there won’t be another article. i’ll update this existing article with the next strike and the next names :)

  48. Sign me up! I need to get my Strike on

  49. I loved this game in the 80′s arcade!!

    I hope I win!!

    p.s. – I will be buying it if I don’t win – but no more negative thoughts :)

  50. mm i want one

  51. 1942 is a pretty good game. and those that think this is hard…Ikaruga owns this game in terms of utter insanity. I already got it, so don’t count me in Deac. I just wanted to put in some social commentary.

  52. @Deac – The UK mate – ‘where history comes from’ as someone once told me :D

    Random note while I’m here – do you know that all your posts are showing up twice in Google Reader? Started recently and still appears to be the same.

  53. really? is that a bad thing? lol

  60. Hey Deacon, I got a question – do we have to post a new message in the article everyday in order to get into the daily drawing or is just one message enough?

    Either way, here I am. Good luck to everyone. ;)

  62. Cool, I’ll try to stay up for today’s 2nd drawing then. ;)

  123. What up Deacon…
