Fanswag Weekly: Lost Planet double dose


Oh boy. We're sorry to say it fanboys, but the Fanswag train is winding down. We're down to our last two bits of swag. It just so happens that the last two games are appropriate for the wintry weather outside. Yes, we're talking about Lost Planet. We've got two copies on hand, and we're giving them both away this week. If you haven't had a chance to play Lost Planet, it's definitely worth checking out, though you may want to skip over the story bits and stick to the action. Read on to learn how to win.
  • Lost Planet is all about ice cold action. Leave a comment on this post telling us about your favorite Winter activities. You can leave one comment per calendar day (Eastern Time).
  • Be sure you only leave one comment per day. Posters of multiple comments during the same day will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until Friday, December 7, 12:00pm Noon, Eastern Time. You must be at least 18 years old to enter. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only
  • On Friday, we'll pick two winners via a random drawing
  • Two winners will each receive a copy of Lost Planet, worth $30 each
Don't worry if Lost Planet isn't your thing, we'll be building up our swag dungeon again, and the swag will flow. Oh, yes, the swag will flow. If official rules are your thing, you can find them by clicking here.

My favorite part about winter is getting up early in the morning on snow and ice covered days, getting a hot cup of cocoa, setting up a lawn chair in the driveway, and watching the school kids slip and slide and fall down as they run to the bus-stop across the street, not realizing that it is on a hill. Ah yes, many a time have I laughed myself out of the chair as I have watched these kids slip and fall into oncoming traffic, only to be pulled from the brink of death by a friend, who then of course loses his balance and falls flat on his behind as well. They never seem to learn, as it happens again, each and every day. Its very entertaining, especially when a girl falls on a boy and they scramble to get away from each other, and the sound of the other kids laughing at them.

Driving in the snow. It makes driving much more interesting.

Naked snow angels are the way to go, although it looks more like snow elephants if you do them face down.

Since I live in FL, there isn't any cool snow to play with, so my activities usually involve virtual snow. Last year Nintendo had a sweet flash-based snowman game on their website.

I tried snowboarding once...I ended up butt boarding, decided I didn't like it after that, lol


I've always wanted to build snow tunnels and snow forts...but I live in Texas, so we usually get just enough for a decent sized snowman
