You exactly have 5 days to figure out where the nearest Left 4 Dead 2 ad is and take a photo next to it. Why? Because Valve is hosting a contest that could win you a limited edition L4D2 Xbox 360 or a free copy of the game.

From the contest page:

Take a funny, interesting, scary or otherwise unique photograph of you or a friend in front of one of L4D2’s outdoor media placements (billboards, bus ads, etc.) and you could win a custom Xbox. All entries will be reviewed and judged by Gabe Newell, president and founder of Valve, so be creative!

All entries must be submitted by Sunday, November 15th.

So go out there and take photos! GL, HF. Full press release after the break.

WoW Battlecry contest a farce?

Posted by: |


So as I mentioned recently, I participated in and “won” the Battlecry contest hosted by Blizzard’s @Warcraft account on Twitter.  Blizzard hosts at least 3 accounts, @Diablo, @Starcraft and @Warcraft.  Around the date Blizzcon was about to go down, these three accounts started having little twitter contests.  Naming items in Diablo, Starcraft memories and a faction specific Battlecry from Warcraft.  All simple little things, all rewarded some prize.  Or did they?  I know the Starcraft account was giving out Starcraft 2 Beta keys for its contest winners.  You can see all three contests listed, along with their premises on and Blizzard’s own forums, so this isn’t something a few people hallucinated.

There were many costume this year that looked really good and just a few costumes that just sucked.  I really enjoyed most of the priest and paladin costumes as well as some of the comedic costumes.  Like the cows from Diablo’s “Cow Level.” and World of Warcraft’s “Meeting Stone.”
