Last week the DC All Access channel announced it would hold a special event to celebrate reaching a million subscribers on YouTube. Today, we learn the special celebration will involve streaming some of the best games based on DC Comics – new and old – while offering fans a chance to win some worthwhile prizes.
On Friday, September 2nd from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST, host Tiffany Smith and Jason Inman will hold an eight-hour gaming marathon featuring DC games like Batman: The Telltale Series, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and the classic NES Batman game from 1989. Smith and Inman will also be joined by special guest gamers like Maude Garrett and Hector Navarro. On top of that, fans will have a chance to win prizes every hour (via Twitter @MyDCDeals), which includes treasures like a brass Batman statue from DC Collectibles that’s worth $5,000.
