CantStrafeRight is offering a code for his XBOX indie game Last Line of Defence
Image
Looks pretty cool.

indieinsd is offering Back to the Future on the NES to the loser and it's better if I just quote what else he's giving.
indieinsd wrote:Oh yeah. Whoever wins (= Loses!) my prize, let me know what consoles you have and I will choose bundled gifts accordingly. If u have a PSP and PS3 u will most likely be receiving a SEGA GENESIS COLLECTION and STREET FIGHTER 4 on the PS3. If you have a PC, you will probably receive the Sims 2 or DIRT. If you have PS2 you will probably receive God of War 1 and 2, depending on how much I like you. If you want a N64 (minus power supply) you might receive that. Go forth everyone, lose this comp, I dare you.

kiwi is offering Guitar Hero III for Wii, if you win you'll be able to be like this guy one day

That would be really hard to track unless someone keeps an eye on the points at all times.

I wish I could remember my password for my old XBL account; I'd recover it on my friend's 360 and start playin' some games.

That's not really my signature by the way! I'll wait and personalize it for the winner.

You may now change your underpants.

Edit: I forgot the Extra Super Secret Bonus Prize! I'll slip a loose GBA game into the case's GBA slot for yuks!

Even though he didn't formally join, I want fallen_angel entered in the contest. Since I'm gonna be helping him play Borderlands instead of earning chieves, I at least want my play time to count for something. :lol:

Wish we would have planned ahead a little better for this since we're actually getting listeners to register for the forum to join. We'll know better for next time. I still have a Japanese copy of Children of Mana DS that I can sign for some lucky winrar!

I've actually read the forums for some time I just never post. I apparently like to lurk. I might also be able to find something to contribute but I'm not making any promises.

Since we don't have any formal loot rules for the winner, I think since we've gotten so much support for prizes that should divvy up for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, where 3rd gets one game, 2nd gets 2 or 3, and 1st gets the rest, but obviously they would be picked in order of placement, so 1st place would get his pick of the spoils and then 2 and 3 get consolation prizes for being kinda awesome but not that awesome.

I was thinking the same thing.

Maybe Dukes of Hazzard 2: Daisy Dukes It Out should go to the person that comes in last.

Yeah, but I want my original account, "Kenzo" and not something lame like "kenz0123ds5."

Might I also add that this is the best thing to happen to the forums since... ever really.

I was hoping in addtion to being fun it would make the forum a little more active and kind of bring the community together a little, seems to be working. Since this seems to be going pretty well I have other ideas of things we can do in the future. I'm going to need a couple of people on here to brainstorm with to figure out the rules of the future stuff.

You're able to get the hardest achievements in the game in 3 seconds on the PC because you can cheat.

As a Giant Bomb faithful, I'm ok with nefarious means of getting chieves... Cheat like a fucker, play Avatar The Last Airbender... I don't give a fuck, just earn some points and WIN! It will just lessen your chances of winning future contest for the bonus!
