New XBL Gamercard generator + new designs

POSTED BY Luigi Violin ON

As I said earlier, I’m at work to improve my XBL Gamercard generation service lately.

One thing I never put much effort on (shame on me!) is the actual “generator“, where you can choose a design and create your own gamercard. Well I’m trying to fix that, and if you want a sneak preview head on to gamercard.zaamit.com for the first draft.
Feel free to tell your friends & family about it and do provide some feedback, as I’ll be working on it a lot in the near future. :)

While we’re on the subject, don’t miss the 2 new designs I just added: one replicates the new (it would have been ‘new’ if I did it a few months ago actually) look of gamercards on the xbox.com forums, and for the other one I have to credit Genio del Male, who gave the idea in a tweet.

Avatar Kinect now available

As of yesterday, Avatar Kinect is available for downloading from the Xbox Marketplace.
That also means that the Beta embargo is over and I can finally tell I was able to preview it.. and that I quite enjoyed it!
It isn’t something you will spend days playing with, but it’s a nice proof of the capabilities of Kinect and the fun you can have with it, aside from gaming.

Follow the link and give it a try!

My Xbox Live Avatar is more like me

I really mean it. Even more than the pic you see on my blog as – once again – I shaved my head last week, and that instantly reflected on my Xbox alter ego!
Ok, you may now resume your normal day. :)

New gamercard, more designs likely coming

POSTED BY Luigi Violin ON

People have been using my Xbox Live gamercards ever since I first released them a few years ago, and traffic has grown substantially when MGC decided to close down their services ( :( ).

I’ve been actually debating for a while whether I should move my gamercard generator to its own domain, polish it up a little bit (or better yet, A LOT), add more layouts and styles etc.. I’m still not sure if that will happen but I do like doing gamercards.. a lot! So I’ll definitely try to improve them in the short term.
For a start, enjoy a new gamercard design, specifically designed for forum sigs. It’s quite obviously a tribute to the “new” xbox.com design, that I honestly like a lot.

Feel free to create your own and let me know what you think in the comments or via email. :)
