Fanswag Weekly: Halo 3 Legendary Edition w/ bonus [update]


[Update: The giveaway is now closed and our winner has been notified. Check your inbox (and spam box), it might be you.]

Don't ask us how we managed it -- we did things we're not proud of -- but we rustled up a Legendary Edition of Halo 3 to giveaway to our oh-so-loyal readers this week. Not only that, but we're also throwing in a collectible aluminum bottle of Game Fuel. It even comes in a spiffy display case, complete with fake, plastic ice cubes. Our advice, keep it mounted to your wall next to the TV. That way, you can always break it open for emergencies. To enter, simply follow these instructions.
  • This is the Legendary Edition folks. Leave a comment on this post telling us about your most legendary moment in gaming (or life in general)
  • Be sure you only leave one comment. Posters of multiple comments will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until Friday, October 26, 12:00 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 one winner via a random drawing
  • One winner will receive a copy of the Halo 3 Legendary Edition and a Game Fuel prize package, worth about $135.
The oppressively realistic and official rules can be found by clicking here.

Fanswag Weekly: Forza Motorsport 2 winner


We sure do love giving things away. Case in point, we owe someone a brand new copy of Forza Motorsport 2, so let's get on with it shall we? The winner of last week's Fanswag Weekly giveaway is ... Eddy! Congratulations Eddy on your fantastic random drawing skills. Perhaps you would do us the honor of creating a nice X3F livery?

Be sure to check back on Wednesday when we give away our next bit of swag. Oh, and just so you know, this week's prize is something pretty special. Find out what it is on Wednesday.

Fanswag: win Tetris Splash and E4


[Update: Our winners have been chosen. A big congrats to Frappioo on his copy of E4 and knight667 who won Tetris Splash.]

Unexpected things are often problematic. For instance, perhaps one day you will wake up with a rabid wolverine in your underwear. Fairly problematic, right? Our situation is perhaps less dire, though. See, we've just been handed some Xbox Live Arcade download codes for Tetris Spash and Every Extend Extra Extreme. See, it doesn't really make sense to wait until next week to give them away, and we've already had this week's Fanswag Weekly giveaway. So, we've decided to offer these up to two lucky winners today! Simply follow the instructions below and you may have yourself a copy of one of these games by 5:00pm ET today, just in time for the weekend.
  • Leave a comment on this post. The content of said comment really doesn't matter, but why not mention how awesome we are. We always like that.
  • Be sure you only leave one comment, posters of multiple comments will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until 5:00pm today, October 19th, Eastern Time. You must be at least 18 years old to enter.
  • After 5:00pm today, we'll pick two winners via a random drawing
  • One 1st prize winner will receive a download code for Every Extend Extra Extreme, worth $10. One 2nd prize winner will receive a download code for Tetris Splash, worth $10.
That's it. Best of luck to everyone. To read the official rules, click here.

Fanswag Weekly: Forza Motorsport 2


It's Wednesday, time for another Fanswag Weekly giveaway. This week, we've got a brand new sealed copy of Forza Motorsport 2. Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Simply follow these directions for your shot at winning.
  • Forza Motorsport 2 recreates automobile racing in a realistic manner. Leave a comment on this post telling us about something that you do in a realistic manner (or not, but you have to leave a comment).
  • Be sure you only leave one comment, posters of multiple comments will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until Friday, October 19th, 12:00 Noon, Eastern Time. You must be at least 18 years old to enter.
  • On Friday, we'll pick one winner via a random drawing
  • One winner will receive a copy of Forza Motorsport 2, worth about $60.

As an added bonus, we're even throwing in another Game Fuel prize pack for a second place winner. If you'd like a shot at this haul, follow these simple steps:
  • Leave a comment on this post describing how you'll get cranked and jack it up with your Game Fuel. Oh, and Halo 3 is rated M, so you must be 18 to enter.
  • Be sure you only leave one comment, posters of multiple comments will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until Friday, October 5th, 12:00 Noon, Eastern Time
  • On Friday, we'll pick two winners via a random drawing
  • One grand prize winner will receive a copy of Halo 3 and a Game Fuel prize pack, worth approximately $90 total. One runner up will receive a Game Fuel prize pack worth about $30

Halo 3 ultimate setup giveaway: last chance


Well folks, it's been nearly two weeks since we opened our Ultimate Halo 3 Setup Giveaway and the constant promotion has taken its toll on Li'l Chief. Yes, even superhuman cybernetic soldiers need to relax once in a while. As you can see, he's decided to kick back for a bit and enjoy the good things in life. Good for him, we say. If you'd like to enjoy the good things in life, like an awesome TV, surround sound system, and an Xbox 360 Elite, you'd best enter our giveaway now. After all, this is you last chance. Today at 5:00pm ET, we won't be accepting any more entries. So, head on over to official giveaway post and submit your final entry.

Good luck to one and all.

Reminder: Halo 3 giveaway ends soon'ish

Take a look at the picture above. Do you know what you're looking at? That's right, you're looking at a person who didn't enter our Ultimate Halo 3 Setup giveaway today and as a result the Flood killed them. Yup, that's the sad truth. So, how do you prevent the Flood from hurting you or your loved ones? Simply head on over to the official Ultimate Halo 3 Setup giveaway page, make a comment and you're in and Flood free. And as an added bonus you'll also be entered into the giveaway for a chance to win a 50" television, Bose surround sound and Xbox 360 Elite. You can read the full details and enter the giveaway after the jump, but make it quick-like. The Flood are coming and they have an appetite for fanboys who didn't enter our giveaway.

Reminder: Halo 3 setup giveaway almost over


The Ultimate Halo 3 Setup Giveaway is quickly drawing to a close, and Li'l Chief is getting anxious. Lately, to keep himself occupied, he's begun attempting some artistic photography. We told him that Photo Booth really isn't the best application for his work, but he won't listen. As you can see here, he's a big fan of sepia. And really, who isn't? But, on to the task at hand, and that's reminding you to enter the giveaway. All you have to do is head over to the official giveaway post and follow the directions. It's super simple. We're down to the last three days of the giveaway, which officially ends on Friday. That's three final chances to win a sweet 50" HDTV, 5.1 surround sound system, and an Xbox 360 Elite. Hurry up, folks, get to it!

Reminder: stop playing Halo 3, enter our giveaway


We know that our readers have been mysteriously "sick" today, or perhaps have had fictional family members die, but we'd like to take this moment to ask you all to stop playing Halo 3 and take a moment to enter the X3F Ultimate Halo 3 Setup giveaway. There are only 4 days left in the giveaway. That's 4 more entries so long as you enter every day. If you haven't at all yet, you'd better get a move on. Now, once you've entered -- and we'll know if you don't -- you can go back to playing Halo 3. That is all.

Remember, leave your entry comments on the official giveaway post, not here.
