Well ain't that dandy.  Not only is live STILL acting funky, there isn't even a new game this week.  Well, just a friendly neighborhood reminder to pick up Undertow this week while it is free.  From Wednesday January 23rd at 5:00 a.m. EST until Monday January 29th at 2:59 a.m.  If you want to take on the developers of the game you'll have the chance Thursday night  at 10:00 EST (7:00 PST).  It might be worth picking up the game for this as there is nothing like scoring game tips straight from the mouths of the people who created the game.

Also, some Mutant Storm Empire download will be available.  Check out the details after the jump:
