I'm sorry you guys, but I honestly didn't come back from New York Comic Con 2012 with a whole lot of swag to do giveaways with. But I did snag this DMC Devil May Cry pouch backpack at the Capcom booth after demoing the game. It's white, with a silhouette of Dante on one side and the weapons on the other.
If you'd like to try and snag this swag for yourself, all you have to do is drop me an E-mail at the address in the column to the left with the subject line "DMC Backpack" and your full name and address in the body. You have until 7:00 pm EST on Monday, October 29 to enter, after which point, I will randomly select one of the entries as the winner. Good luck!
Totally forgot I had this piece of swag from Capcom sitting around, and I have a really nice leather slipcase for my own Nintendo 3DS, so I thought I'd throw this up for you guys and see if anyone wants it. It's a really nice hard plastic case for the 3DS with all the requisite openings and holes for the camera and slots. Although the outside of the case is brushed soft, so it looks buffed, not shiny. The only problem with that is that it tends to show fingerprints and scratches. As you can see, it's not quite in mint condition... But hey, it's free!
There's a Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D logo on the top, and on the bottom, a red Umbrella logo and the sticker labeling it as number 758 out of 1000 in the limited production line.
So if you'd like a snazzy Resident Evil 3DS case, just drop me an E-mail at the address in the column to the left with the subject line "RE 3DS Case" and include your name and full mailing address. You've got all weekend to enter, and I'll pick a winner on Monday evening. So you've got until 7:00 pm on Monday to enter, after which, you're out of luck!
So a while back I reviewed the collection of DC Comics' six issue InFAMOUS mini-series that bridged the gap between the PlayStation 3 games InFAMOUS and InFAMOUS 2.
Well, if you still want to check it out but don't feel like paying for it, you could try to win this copy I've got to give away to one lucky reader! All you have to do is send me an E-mail with the link on the left hand side of this page with the subject line InFAMOUS Trade and your name and mailing address in the body. You have all weekend to enter, and I will cut off entries and pick a winner at random on Monday, March 5, at 7:00 pm EST.
Happy holidays, gaymers! Sorry I haven't posted much lately (good lord, it's been over a month!), but between two jobs and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus I have had minimal time for anything substantive. I promise, though, that I've got three reviews in the works: two video reviews concerning flying elves and speedy mammals, and an iOS review for a game that teaches you how to be a bartender. No, seriously.
Due to being so busy, I've become more and more familiar with that Twittery thing that Drand assures me is not a fad. I have to admit, it's kinda nifty even though I've been turning my nose up to it in the past. If I stumble across something interesting or have a profound thought, I can just post there and be done instead of logging in and drafting an article. Also, I don't think the people I work for would appreciate me using company time to do work for someone else. Weird, I know, but go figure.
So to the point of this post: I've got six more digital copies of Trion Worlds' MMO RIFT to give away, each with its own code for six months of game time. So to spread some holiday cheer as well as get more familiar with tweeting, I'm holding a small contest for y'all. Nothing quite so complex as last time, though. This time, it's super easy: just find me on Twitter (@DigitalLitGG; I've got the same icon, so I should be easy to find) and tweet "Merry Riftmas!" or your own awful pun variation of a holiday greeting; we're ecumenical over here. The first six gaymers to share the holiday spirit will get a copy of the game and the game time card to use or give away as a gift (you know, just in case you forgot someone) as they see fit.
UPDATE: All the client/time combos have been claimed. Thank you to everyone who entered!
So that's it! Happy holidays to you all, gaymers!
I picked up a little bit of swag at New York Comic Con 2011, and wanted to share some of it with you guys. This here is one of those little sliding puzzle dealies that Nintendo gave away after the screening of Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva to promote their new DS title Professor Layton and the Last Specter. Since these things give me a headache (the sliding puzzles in the games give me aneurisms), I immediately decided to give it away to one lucky reader!
But actually, due to Nintendo's generosity, I have four of these to give away! So all you have to do is send me an E-mail with your name and mailing address to the E-mail link in the left column of the homepage and I will select four winners at random to receive a puzzle each. If I was particularly clever, I would think up a puzzle and try to make you answer it, but I honestly don't think I could come up with anything good enough. So it's just a random giveaway. And because I'm feeling particularly generous, I'll open it up to more than just US residents. (And one lucky reader will receive the one that I took out of the plastic to photograph, so it's actually been handled by me!) You've got until Monday, October 31, at 6:00 pm EST!
Ever played a rousing game of a fantasy MMO and get that awesome Ancient Skullcap of This Is A Helmet, only to realize that it clashes horribly with your Belt of I Am Great making you look like you just stumbled out of the closet of a schizophrenic drag queen? The folks at Trion Worlds have taken style into account in their MMO RIFT and have implemented a neat distinctive feature: costumes!
They work like this: once you don your armor of leetness, you can put costume pieces on "over" your armor so that you retain all of your defense bonuses but remain coordinated and stylish while fighting invasions from elemental planes.
Feel like saving the world while looking good? Fortunately for you, I have six RIFT product keys and six 6-month game time codes that I'm gonna give away, but you've gotta earn it! I bet you can see where I'm going with this what with Halloween being right around the corner and all.
