Competition Time! Win “The Splatters” on Xbox 360!

NOTE: This competition has ended.

Who doesn’t love a good competition? This time, the kind folks at Spiky Snail Games have given us a few codes for The Splatters for Xbox360, and so they’re up for grabs. I reviewed the game over here, so if you don’t know what The Splatters is all about, give the post a read. It’s entertaining, I promise.

The game was 50% off to Gold members last week (400 MS Points), but if you missed the sale—or aren’t an Xbox Live Gold member—and you still want to play the Splatters in all its colorful, gooey, splattery glory, all you need to do is answer one teensy weensy simple question, and BAM! Your name goes into the draw for one of the codes!

Question: Name one of the stunt types that can be performed by the Splatters. Hint: I mention a few in my review, but any of the stunt answers will do!

This time, the competition is open to our readers worldwide, so hit the jump, and have at it!

[There was a form here. It is gone now.]

The usual terms and conditions with the exception that entry to this competition is open to anyone, worldwide. It will end at noon (SAST) on Friday, October 19th 2012, after which names will be drawn and the winners announced. Good luck!

The Winner of our Mass Effect Competition is….

What a competition! I’ve not quite seen such a scramble for a prize since…well…since ever. We had millions and squillions and willions of entrants. Maybe even jillions! We had more entrants than there are people on the planet, which leads us to suspect that even alien races were entering. Alas, there can be only one dream! One soul! One prize! One goal! One golden glance of…no, wait. That’s Queen.

So, who is going to soon discover that no matter what scars they bear, whatever uniform they wear, they could fight like a Krogan, run like a leopard, they’ll never be better than Commander Shepard? Find out after the jump.

I know how everyone loves free stuff, and this time around, courtesy of the wonderful people at Nintendo (thank you PrincessPeachZA!), we have a copy of Resident Evil Revelations for 3DS to give away. “How do I enter?” I hear you clamouring. Good thing you asked, because I was about to tell you! All you have to do is answer the following question in the comments section below:

What is your favourite horror video game?

Yep! It’s that easy! Since it’s coming up Valentine’s Day however, we’re going to be extra nice, and give you a chance at a second entry! You’re going to have to do a liiiiittle bit of extra work for the second entry, however.

The competition ends in a week, on February the 8th. Terms and conditions apply.

Competition Time! Win a copy of Mercury Hg for Xbox 360!

We haven’t had a nice, fun competition in a long time, have we? We underlings figured that, since Lord Prawn is not keeping too close an eye on things here at Prawn Central (himself being over in Sri Lanka at the moment), we’re going to bestow upon you, Our Awesome Readers, a prize: Mercury Hg for Xbox 360 (courtesy of UTV Ignition Games). That’s right! You can win yourself the very game that was just reviewed here! The caveat, of course, is that we’re going to require you to read the entertaining review! Nothing for nothing, as they say! So get reading. We’ll wait.

Done? Did you see the part about the banana? Good. Bananas always have such high comedic value, no matter where you stick them.

So, to win, all you have to do is this: leave a comment in this post telling us what your favourite element of the periodic table is, and why. Don’t comment your entries in the review’s post—it won’t be counted. The judges will pick the most creative answer, and award that lucky person a download code for Mercury Hg for Xbox 360! You can also help us spread the word of the competition by tweeting the following:
