June Gaming Giveaway!

This contest is now closed - Thanks to all who entered!
Congrats to Zenphic, Kilamon & Leboef - winners of some gaming prizes!


Another month, another contest.  This months contest is simple to enter, all you need to do is join (if you haven't already) the BCCHardware Community (a.k.a. Forum) and post a gaming screenshot of you playing or favorite game.  If you don't have a favorite game, now's the time to start gaming and find one.

You must head on over and post in this forum thread, and each different screenshot will count as an entry.  If you are creative, you may earn bonus entries as well.  Fujitsu and myself (Zeus) will judge the creative side of things if needed.

Many games have built-in screen capture functions - for those that don't - use FRAPS!


Contest Rules:

Contest Ends June 30th at 11:59PM MST. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.

We will ship the prizes to anywhere in Canada or the United States for Free.

Prizes will be drawn using the random number generator at random.org

Any other questions can be sent to admin@bcchardware.com


Grand Prize - 1 Year Free Gametap Subaccount (Gold)

This will let you play many games for free.  Don't worry, these are not all lame, old games.  While you have classic games such as Street Fighter and Space Invaders, you've also got Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Myst, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, and many, many more!
 

Prize #2 - 6 Month Free Gametap Subaccount (Gold)

This will let you play many games for free.  Don't worry, these are not all lame, old games.  While you have classic games such as Street Fighter and Space Invaders, you've also got Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Myst, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, and many, many more!

Prize #3 - Psychonauts (PC Game)

Psychonauts is a quirky, offbeat game set in a special summer camp for clairvoyant kids, in which a group of psychic children end up in a wacky adventure filled with brain-stealing hijinks, psychic secret agents, and a little romance on top of everything else. It's rooted in the sorts of 3D platforming sensibilities we've all come to know over the years. But there's a spin to the game--its psychic theme--which adds some cool puzzle-solving to the usual platform-jumping and swinging associated with the genre.

To Sum Up:


  • Play Games
  • Take Screenshots
  • Post them in this thread
  • Win Prizes

You can attach a picture (must be less than 256K) to your post by clicking on "Additional Options" below the post box.

Here's one I took for my Magelo profile.


I have more on my other PC. Quality is poor, though, because my video card is 3 generations old.

Bumping this thread again, and reminding everyone to post up a screenshot for a shot at winning prizes

these Gametap memberships that we are giving away are pretty decent, was browsing through the list of games and there are some decent games (1nsane, Serious Sam II, Farcry, Commandos 3....) and also alot of older games that are fun to play for old times sake

Its pretty simple to enter, and your odds of winning are pretty decent so far...

Only a couple more days before the contest ends, make sure you get your entry in.

Right now your odds of winning are pretty good, lol

Here's me playing with the good old Unreal Tournament 2004. Pretty fun. The first one is a weird glitch that had a wall of dust out of nowhere. The second one is me putting a headshot... classic. Third pic... well that's just a REALLY bloodly one, so I ended up putting the URL only:

hope i'm not too late^^





this is a screenshot of "throne of darkness", it's kind of a 2003 samurai-version of diablo. well it's not really a good game to be honest, the AI always does kamikaze and leaves you alone with the enemies, which is annoying  ;D  but i'm really into all that samurai-stuff and have seen all the kurosawa-movies, so somehow i like it ;-)

Hahah, Ultima used to be one of my favourite games. But Ultima 7 was the best in the series I say  :smitten:

Neat, thanks for the competition, Zeus and everyone that made this possible.
Now, I just hope I won't get too addicted to the games offered on Gametap  ;)
