When Xbox Live copywriters get careless

Eagle-eyed Quarter To Three denizen "XPav" spotted some Xbox Live Marketplace demo descriptions that are either terse, strange, or just plain nonsensical. It's obvious what happened: in each case, somebody banged out a rough draft as a placeholder and didn't remember to go back and rewrite the text for public consumption. Embarrassing for them, but fun for us. Could the "real" Dead or Alive 4 description have been any more enjoyable -- or accurate -- than "mighty magnificent stimulating graceful fighting?"
