Trends with Benefits: Iconic Arsenals

If you can handle this week’s Trends with Benefits, then you can handle the legendary Golden Axe! TWB is the weekly brainteaser from your friends at TriplePoint, appearing every week in our news round-up, Points of Interest, and it offers terrific prizes to readers who can puzzle their way through the challenge du jour. First crack at the prizes go to Points of Interest subscribers when the newsletter goes out on Fridays, but we’ll be sharing each week’s challenge here on our website, as well.

This week’s TWB prize is a free download of Golden Axe via PlayStation Network, from the good folks at SEGA! Take a swing at the challenge, after the break…

Iconic Arsenals
These are not weapons one should leave at the crime scene.

Killing a bad guy in a video game is not terribly difficult. Over the years, players have had ample opportunity to bash, blast, and berate their foes, using every possible tool and weapon in the book. Still, there’s something especially satisfying about taking someone down with a truly iconic weapon… a tool of destruction so distinct, so unique, that it’s in the very title of the game… like, for instance, a lovely Golden Axe.

This week’s Trends with Benefits challenge can make this weapon and game yours — we’ll be giving a copy of Golden Axe on PSN to one reader who can complete the puzzle, courtesy of TriplePoint client SEGA! To enter, complete the following list by filling in the deadly blanks: Each line contains a game, named after a weapon, in the pattern “Adjective Weapon.” For example, Golden Axe. Name all of these iconic death-dealing devices to enter the prize drawing!
