Red Dead Contest (With Prize!)

It’s right around the corner, folks. Red Dead Redemption, which has already received some reviews as being awesome (we knew it though), is coming next week to the United States, and I couldn’t be more excited. Because I’m so excited, I’m giving away a 3 month subscription to Xbox Live for free just to participate in this contest. Sorry, PlayStation 3 owners. You already get to Yehaw!! for free.

How to Win:
*Simple. Just write on this blog (or the several other blogs I wrote on) and tell me the name of your online gang, why you’re most excited about the game (even if it’s just the horse shoes mini-game), and then your favorite western movie.
*At the end of the contest, I’ll put the names in a hat, literally, and message/e-mail the winner.
*The winner will be announced May 18th, 2010. Contest is until May 17th, 2010, 8 P.M. EST.

*U.S./Canada/Puerto Rico/Mexico only.
*One entry only. However, you can alter your entry.

Or in some cases (Hellgate: London), less than a year!

Need Moar Minerals!! (StarCraft II Beta Impressions)

Middle of the  road.No country for Zerg rushing.

There’s nothing more satisfying than watching a ton of roaches get squashed by a tank that’s fired a shell right into it’s ugly little face. This brutal scene of violence is what puts a smile on my face, at least. StarCraft II is right around the corner (July, for example), which means I can support Blizzard more than I already have.

I pre-ordered the (special edition) game at GameStop. Don’t judge me! I could care less how they treat people. They had a good deal. Pre-order the game, get into the mutliplayer beta. Quit judging me! I have a couple of friends that are getting this with me so we can do team games. Our team name is “The Wet Bandits“. We’re a small clan of gaming idiots that have no idea what we’re doing because we can’t stick to one game for too long. But StarCraft II may hold our attention long enough.
