It's not all an elaborate ruse, some misguided attempt to establish for myself an online persona of dubious quality. I really am dull. If you don't find that unbearable, though, this is my blog that examines just how truly boring I can be.
Title: A free Xbox 360 up for grabs Posted: November 29, 2007 (06:00 PM)
I'm trying to get as many people as possible involved in a giveaway that's going on over at hardcoregamer.com (where as some of you know, I spend a great deal of my time). The contest is for a free Xbox 360 (Halo-themed) and a copy of Halo 3. If I were eligible, you can bet your ass I'd be participating right now... but I'm not.
You, however, are completely eligible. So, here's the post about the thread that I've posted elsewhere online (since I'm too lazy to type everything up again).
Hardcoregamer.com and Gamer Graffix have teamed up to award one talented and fortunate gamer a free Xbox 360, along with a bunch of other really cool stuff related to Halo 3. If you're a Halo fan, here's the grand prize you could win:
- 3 FOOT GAMER GRAFFIX HALO 3 MASTER CHIEF WALL GRAFFIX™
- 4 FOOT GAMER GRAFFIX HALO 3 MASTER CHIEF WALL GRAFFIX™
- 2 18 X 24 INCH HALO 3 MASTER CHIEF WALL GRAFFIX™
- XBOX 360 (Halo Edition)
- HALO 3 GAME
- THE OFFICIAL NOVELS OF HALO
- RED VS. BLUE - SEASONS 1,2,3,4,5
- HALO GHOSTS OF ONYX - NOVEL
- HALO GRAPHIC NOVEL
- Gamer Graffix Xbox 360 Skin (Death Card)
All you have to do is sign up on the account (it's free) and then enter the site challenge. To win the grand prize above, submit the best essay explaining why you're the craziest Halo fan around. You can write up to one page if that's what it takes.
Another way to enter is to submit photo proof that you're the craziest fan. That will give you a chance to win one of several other Halo-related prizes. Full details are on the contest page on the site, available here:
You need to be signed into your user account to view the contest and enter on the site. If you don't already own an Xbox 360, or if you want another one for your bedroom or a friend, this is a great chance to score a free system. Depending on the number of people who actually enter and the quality of those submissions, your chances at winning could be pretty good!
On a side note, hardcoregamer.com is a pretty sweet site. You get points for participating, like you do here on HonestGamers, and you can use the points on swag in the free online store. They've given away some pretty great stuff, including signed copies of games and the like. You might want to check it out and maybe get yourself something cool while you're at it.
Some of you are great writers, as you know, so if you live in the US and you need an Xbox 360, you would stand a good chance at getting one with only moderate effort.

This may be interesting except I'm not a crazy Halo fan at all. What the hell would I write?

"...explaining why you're the craziest Halo fan around."
Agreed. My level of fanaticism is more like a casual tolerance.

Write how I SLAUGHTERED you. They'll give you pity points, Pup.

If you're really a crazy Halo fan, wouldn't you already have all that shit anyway?
User: Suskie Title: Posted: November 29, 2007 (07:39 PM)
That... makes a whole lot of sense.
Besides, I just bought a 360, with a copy of Halo 3, last week.

Well, if you're like me and would like a free new-age system, you'll totally bullshit your way through this thing.
I plan to spend the next couple days looking at any Halo-related GFaqs Halo material (walkthrough, game scripts, etc.) and making a hugeass attempt to prove I know more about this series than any of you!
Oh! Almost forgot! As a broke-ass staff member that's been going from married to dissolutionment this year, I don't have the financial means to buy fancy new systems at the moment.....so, Jason, "making sure" I "win" would really be a great way to enhance our staff X360 reviews, since NOBODY EVER covers games on this system!
So, hell, screw writing the Halo essay. Just give me the freebie!!!!!

Except, of course, us silly Europeans.
