Jun 012012

Today kicks off the next Video Game Giveaway from DragonBlogger.com where every month we give away a video game of the winner’s choice.  This video game you choose can be for any platform (PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Nintendo 3DS, PS Vita…etc) but must have a value of $59.99 or less.  This contest is open Internationally but if you enter from abroad then you will receive the value of the game via Paypal instead of me buying and shipping the game out to you.

Some coveted games you may want to win with this month’s giveaway include:

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Good luck to all who enter and remember someone will win, and the more entries you get, the better your odds of winning!

  • ChrisDemele

    Sure is teeth grinding waiting for this to end.
    Wanting to win Guildwars 2 😀 for PC
    Still though.

    • [email protected] will be the 6th video game I have given away this year, doing 1 per month.  So far no winners have picked the same game!  Guild Wars 2 looks great, I loved playing the original and expansion packs (consumed 2.5 years of my life)

      • ChrisDemele

        [email protected] Blogger YEah, I played the originals as well. Was my first MMO. Before that i’d stuck to Hack N’ Slash, FPS, and RPG’s. I ended up not being able to finish the final campaign due to discovering an MMO that had free movement, but I couldn’t hold on to those MMO’s because they lacked the story that Guildwars had. I did manage to do half of the Hall of Monuments though. Really hoping that at sometime in the future I can get my mitts on a copy of Guildwars 2, and a PC that can run it with reasonable performance.
        What other games have you given away? I’m assuming that they were set giveaways and not dynamic like this one. 

      • ChrisDemele

        @Dragon Blogger
        Yeah the original was my first MMO + the expansions. I’d gotten into the MMO market let, before I’d played Guildwars i’d stuck to Hack N’ Slash, FPS, and RPG’s. I ended up not being able to finish the final campaign due to discovering an MMO that had free movement, but I couldn’t hold on to those MMO’s because they lacked the story that Guildwars had. I did manage to do half of the Hall of Monuments though. Really hoping that at sometime in the future I can get my mitts on a copy of Guildwars 2, and a PC that can run it with reasonable performance.
        What other games have you given away? I’m assuming that they were set giveaways and not dynamic like this one. 

        • [email protected] was that most people can’t afford them monthly subscription with MMO’s and the Guild Wars buy 1x, play infinitely was great as I would rather buy expansion packs than pay a monthly fee to play in general (though I understand why businesses do it and it works, but you shouldn’t have to buy the game for $60 and then pay monthly, if you pay monthly the download and install of the game should be free if you say prepay a 6 month or year.
          All of my giveaways were “winner picks the game” but previous winners have chosen:  Batman: Arkham City, Madden NFL 13 (isn’t out until August, pre-ordered for last winner), Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and one I think was International so I paypal’d the winnings.I also gave away a Hauppauge HD PVR 1445 gaming recorder device back in March, an iPad 3 on June 1st, 2 Kingston SSD 32GB USB Drives.  In the future I have plans to do (video game every month, Kindle eReader, Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 bundle, budget gaming laptop…etc).  I do at least 2 giveaways per month as a reward for my readers/fans and I enjoy it. 

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger  Well we sure do appreciate what you do with your blog as well as the giveaway opportunities, even if we don’t win them.  Thanks for the opportunities regardless.

        • [email protected] know they are random and that can frustrate some contestants, so I am going to test out a new contest method called Contest Domination soon, this method allows readers to earn entries based on how much they promote and is not random to draw a winner, the winner will be the one who collects the most points.  If it is successful and works, this may help the most motivated win the prize rather than the most lucky. 

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger I actually quite enjoy the idea of “luck of the draw” contests rather than the other method.  It comes from the experience of having been involved in a few of those other type of contests, that just got way out of hand and overly-absurd.  If it doesn’t require a ton of crazy random things, like most places require (I had 1 recently that wanted me to “like” a softcore porn page on Facebook to get extra entries, which was NOT gonna happen), then it could possibly work out nice.  The convenience of the LOTD type ones, is that it’s completely random, and whoever is meant to (destined to) win it, will do so, and whoever doesn’t, simply just wasn’t meant to.

        • [email protected], I see your point there too.  For my Contest Domination there is only 2 ways to get entries.  1) subscribe to our newsletter, #2) promote your own contest link and get others to subscribe to our newsletter ( you get 5 points for each person who subscribers under your referral link to the contest).  Nothing else, no scams, no liking a dozen pages, no surveys.  I HATE that crap, my contests will only ever involve liking my legitimate advertisers fanpages, twitter accounts, retweets or at most joining my own mailing list or an advertisers if they fund a contest.  
          When I was giving the iPad 3 away the winner was so skeptical that it was real even when I contacted them 🙂  I have had people think my contests were scams before.

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger That’s not surprising, considering how many “iPad/iPod/iPhone giveaway” scams there are out there.  If people aren’t too familiar with you they’ll often be wary of such instances.  For me, I just take whatever winnings I can get pretty much, lol.  I’ve only had one bad experience with trying to claim my prize, and that was thanks to Mad Catz’s media and customer relations manager, who wanted me to email him an exact hi-res scan of my driver’s license, to “prove I’m legally of age to receive my prize”.  I told him I’d be willing to try working something else out, but refused to do exactly what he wanted (obvious red flag went up when he requested it in the 1st place).  After i told him that, he banned me from all of their Facebook pages and then even removed my winning post and claim comments, ignored my PM’s asking why he was doing it and then gave my prize to someone else.
          Some of these places are more scam than anything, it’s refreshing to know you’re one of the real-deal good guys in the field.  Thanks 🙂

        • @RonaldSmith Yeah, copy of license, credit card or anything to claim prize is immediate scam, however in the U.S. it is require to fill out an tax form and report any winner of a contest where the prize is $600 or more value.  If you basically pay any single person more than $600 in a calendar year (even prize value that adds up, a form needs to be filled to the government and taxes may be owed by that individual for the prize).  This is why radio stations and casino’s have to collect your tax information to give you even concert tickets and such or gambling winnings over a certain amount.
          There are certain contests I can’t open up Internationally, like certain gadgets, technologies and such that can’t cross borders, or require me to fill out customs…etc which makes it more difficult to keep my contests open Internationally, my work around is to not buy the contest prize until after contestant wins and offer paypal cash value if they are International winner. 

        • PeterRogala

          [email protected] [email protected] Like I may have mentioned before  Justin that this blog you got going on is the real-deal and makes solid coffee time reading day or night . yep it is nice to my pal @RonaldSmith  in this community too !

          [email protected] party just follows you everywhere, you’re like a rockstar of the interwebs LOL

        • [email protected]@RonaldSmith Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback. I just do this blog as a hobby and for fun to entertain readers, provide information and giveaway cool stuff when I can get sponsors or fund it myself.

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger  We appreciate what you do as well, thank you.  Also, though I highly doubt whatsoever that my name will be drawn, is it too late to upgrade my request from Darksiders 2 – PC to Darksiders 2 Collectors Edition – PC?  I really like the bonus items it will have coming with it, lol.

        • [email protected] can choose the game when you win, you don’t have to pick what you left in comment.  Any game for any platform as long as price is $59.99 or less.

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger Awesome, that’s really cool.  DS2 LE is over $59.99 though, lol, so that one’s ruled out.  I’ll wait to see who wins though before putting any more thought into it, thanks again 🙂

    • [email protected] place Diablo 3 broke all sales records, shattering Black Ops with over 6.2 million copies in the first week http://www.ingame.msnbc.msn.com/technology/ingame/diablo-3-sales-set-record-despite-launch-issues-790219 the previous record was WOW: Cataclysm.

  • MigueelMcCommunist

    I’d love to win Resident Evil: Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS. Played the demo and it was pretty good: It has the classy, horror-ish RE feeling + pretty good graphics and atmosphere that fans want. I haven’t been able to buying it, but I sure hope I can give it a go with this contest! Thanks for the opportunity.

    • [email protected] luck, if you win you will be the 1st who requested a 3DS game as the prize.

    • MigueelMcCommunist

      [email protected] it doesn’t matter but, in case I win, I’m changing my price 😛 I’d like to win Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for 360 (yeah, no BLOPS 2; already pre-ordered it), I figured I’d be better off with something that I could play with my dad, as I’m coming home for the summer. Thanks!

      • [email protected]’s fine, if you win I will contact you and you tell can decide exactly then too.

  • AmyKathryn

    Black OPS 2 for xbox 360 🙂

    • [email protected] Ops doesn’t come out to November, I could pre-order for you if you won but it would be a long wait (wouldn’t feel like you won if you had to wait 4 or 5 months for it to come).

      • AmyKathryn

        [email protected] Blogger Yes it would be a long wait…However perfect for a Christmas present!

  • beerrun

    Sleeping Dogs-PS3

  • Levilady67

  • Armando_Holguin

    Sorcery for the PS3…because my kids said so! lol But my selection may change if I’m forced to get it sooner!

    • [email protected]_Holguin Yeah, with all the wizard fans this one was sure to be popular.  You will know in 3 days if you are the winner (if you can hold out that long).

  • zero110100


  • RonaldSmith

    Ugh!  For some stupid reason, it reset ALL of my entries.  Are you kidding me?!  I re-did all of it again, but admittedly that’s annoying.  Well, here’s hoping for the miracle I might win a game from this, lol.  Good luck everyone.

    • [email protected] your entries are there back to June 14th for me, may just be widget issue.  I will open a ticket with Rafflecopter.  

      • RonaldSmith

        [email protected] Blogger Thanks Justin, that’s what i was thinking too.  At least you were able to confirm that though, it helps to relieve my frustration 🙂

        • [email protected] you revealed a bug in the system and I opened a problem ticket.  You were the first person to report this issue, not sure if you changed FB profile names, emails or what caused it to not recognize your FB login from previous logins to collect entries.  

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger It happened when I went to do the entry for commenting on a contest article.  Not sure what happened, but it really was unusual.  Thanks 🙂  Btw, do you ever get out to Mesa at all?  I used to work at a PC shop called Family Computer Center, it’s on University Drive, by Discount Tire.  Great place if you ever get the chance to stop in.  The owners are Chuck and Ann Kempton, and they are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.  If you ever make it out that way, tell Chuck I sent you 🙂

        • [email protected] used to live in Mesa off of Recker and McKellips 11years ago for 2 years.  I don’t get up that way very often anymore, maybe 1x per year at most.  I am often in Chandler, Ahwatukee, Tempe but even then it’s only 1x per week or two.  Mostly just grounded in Casa Grande, or spending time in Encinitas, CA.

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger Nice!  I love AZ, such a beautiful state, even in some of the worst areas, lol.  Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert and Sedona are some of my fave places, especially Sedona.  Gorgeous area Sedona is.

        • [email protected] agree, Sedona, Pinetop, Grand Canyon, Payson, all great places.  Too hot here in the Southern part for me, which is why I try to spend as much of the summer in CA as possible where the temp is never above 85.

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger Widget is messing up again.  It logged me out again and refuses to log me in via Facebook or any other means.  It just keeps erroring out w/out any explanation or error codes.

        • [email protected] opened a ticket with Rafflecopter who noted the entry issue and are looking into it.  In the meantime note that all previous entries are recorded.  Do you use a specific browser/operating system to login?  Do you switch between a fanpage/FB profile while visiting the widget?

        • RonaldSmith

          [email protected] Blogger Actually your page isn’t the only one I’ve had these same issues.  I just emailed them myself, because I’m experiencing it with other websites, who use the same widget.  As to my browser, I use Firefox, and on Win7 x64 Ultimate.  No I don’t switch between profiles either, in Firefox I am either logged into my primary FB account or don’t have the browser open at all.  It seems that the issues are definitely with the widget itself from my experiences the last couple of days.  Even now it has me as logged in, but for the last few minutes it’s been trying to load my entries to no avail.

  • TheErinRyan

    Love this idea Justin! I just saw it via a Facebook event invite and think it is superb! Great Job!
