Holiday 2016 Giveaway (PS3, Wii U, 3DS, and Steam games)

The giveaway has ended! Thanks to those who participated (and sorry for such a late update to this post here, I’ve been kind of busy lately).

————

Welcome to this post-Christmas giveaway that I’ve been accumulating games for quite awhile for! Most of the codes are from Humble Bundles, and this giveaway will include games for the PS3, Wii U, and 3DS, and a couple $10 Steam games will be given out too. I originally hosted a giveaway last year on another site, and that didn’t get any activity on it, which is why this giveaway is being hosted here (so I can actually give something away this time). Here’s a list of the available games:
**—Games—**

*PS3:*
Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3
Super *Puzzle* Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
Final Fight Double Impact
LOST PLANET 3
Super *Street* Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix
Remember Me

*Wii U:*
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
Swords & Soldiers II

*3DS:*
Flipnote Studio 3D 
Retro City Rampage: DX and its 3DS theme
Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure
Nano Assault EX
**(Please check to make sure a game is on your preferred system)**

*Steam:*
Two $10 (or less) Steam games of two commenter’s choosing (state the name of the game in your comment; including games on sale, if you’re wondering). You can list two (or more) games if they both (or all) together fit within the $10 range. 

If you want to know some of my recommendations, I think Terraria, Garry’s Mod, Guacamelee STCE, Shovel Knight, Portal (and its sequel), and a few guilty pleasures of mine, Gunpoint and Spore, are all great games. As for other highly acclaimed games (that I haven’t had the chance to get), Stardew Valley, Ori and the Blind Forest, Elder Scrolls IV (GOTY edition), Fallout New Vegas, Cities Skylines, Battleblock Theater, Crypt of the Necrodancer, XCOM Enemy Unknown, and Psychonauts. This isn’t every great game under $10 on Steam at the moment, but it’s just some ideas in case you don’t know what you might want.

**—Rules and Requirements—**

As for the rules, only one game per person (aside from the exception for Steam games up above). To enter the giveaway, comment a game and your most beloved gaming-related memory. This giveaway will run from now (December 26 at 12 PM EST) to December 30th at 5 PM EST. Comments will be picked randomly through [this site](http://andrew.hedges.name/experiments/random/pickone.html). Winners will be PMed a game’s code (or in the case of Steam, I will give more detailed instructions through a PM as well) at the latest by December 31st at 5 PM EST.

Thanks for participating (if you do), and have a wonderful day!

(Also, I am somewhat prone to making small mistakes in things like this. If you spot an error or if something is unclear, please tell me.)

Holiday 2015 Game Giveaway!

Aaaaaand, there’s the end of this year’s annual Holiday Giveaway… With 0 participants! Hooray! There’s always next year, I assume…

Welcome to this year’s Holiday Game Giveaway! This giveaway will run from December 22nd at 1 PM EST to December 31st at 1 PM EST (for the duration of Steam’s Winter Sale minus some days for the time to buy and gift each winner their game). This year, you will have a chance to win a Steam game ($10 or under) or a (pre-picked) Wii U eShop game for free! Three winners will receive their choice of a Steam game ($10 or under, on-or-off sale), and two winners may decide to choose one of two eShop games. Please follow the correct rules for both below.

Steam Game Rules:

You must comment below with either a link to your Steam profile or just your Steam name (please give a link if you have a common Steam name). After that, comment about a game ($10 or under) that you would like to have a chance to receive and why you want to receive it. I will friend a winner’s Steam profile and message them a code. If a winner does not reply to the friend request by January 2nd at 12 AM EST, the giveaway win will be given to the next randomly selected person. There will be three winners for Steam games, and each winner is randomly picked*.

(*I am using the honor system. There is no system in place to prevent duplicate accounts from voting, but I strongly hope that you will oblige to the rules of this giveaway, so that everyone has a fair chance at winning. Thank you.)

Also, if you feel torn between two or so games, feel free to ask me about what games I personally recommend. I haven’t played every game on Steam, and I can’t reflect your preferred type of game, so be wary of that if you feel the need to ask me. 🙂

Wii U eShop Game Rules:

Due to Nintendo’s region locking, this part of the giveaway is US only.

You may choose between Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition for Wii U or BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien also for Wii U. Please comment below with what game you want and why you want it. I will make sure to PM (private message) you the code for the game you’ve picked when the giveaway is over. There will be two winners for the Wii U eShop games (one winner for Guacamelee and one winner for BIT.TRIP Runner2), and each winner is randomly picked*.

(*I am using the honor system. There is no system in place to prevent duplicate accounts from voting, but I strongly hope that you will oblige to the rules of this giveaway, so that everyone has a fair chance at winning. Thank you.)

Possible Surprises?!:

For the duration of the giveaway, I will occasionally update this post to include a special riddle. The first person to answer a riddle in the comments will be allowed to pick a game that is $5 or less on Steam (I’m doing this because I want there to be a fair chance for everyone to win something outside of random selection). I will give an hour’s heads up before each riddle is posted, but I will not be posting any riddles or announcements of riddles from December 24 at 12 AM to December 26 at 11:59 PM EST (so that there’s plenty of time to spend with any of your family members/friends during that time frame).

Under special circumstances, I may allow for their to be a fourth Steam game winner who will be able to pick any game on Steam that he/she wants that is $10 or less. (This may occur during January 1-January 3, depending on multiple factors.)

More special surprises may come later if this gets to be bigger.

Remember, winners will be picked on December 31st at 1 PM EST (and prizes must be claimed by January 2nd at 12 AM EST)!

Thanks for participating (if you do), seeya!
