The Darksiders Competition Winners

Our Darksiders competition has finally come to an end. In case you missed the action, we started off the competition asking people to toss a turtle as far as they could. Many productive work hours were lost in the process, and in the short space of two days, some of the entrants had klapped the game so hard that they surpassed the theoretical maximum score! So an update to the competition was required, and we went into a sudden death round, where a score over 10 million guaranteed the entrant a place in the next round.

Six persistent entrants made it into the sudden death round and we asked them to play one of my favourite indie games from last year, Adam Atomic’s Canabalt. They had 24 hours to submit their scores. That time has expired and we have now arrived at the official winners announcement. Find it after the jump.

Darksiders Competition: An Important Update

Note: This competition has ended.

Gamers, sometimes they are like bulls in a china shop. Two days into our Darksiders competition, and two very persistent (read: crazy) people have surpassed the theoretical maximum high score for the flash game we selected for the competition. That completely blindsided us ad we hadn’t expected such dedication so early in the proceedings. Needless to say, there is only one PS3 copy of Darksiders up for grabs, so we have had to make an adjustment to the competition. If you have entered, please take a look at the update after the jump.

Play “Toss the Turtle” and Win Darksiders!

Note: This competition has ended.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Darksiders (read our review here) and in our first competition in 2010, we want you to experience that feeling too. Thanks to our sponsors, SterKinekor, we’re giving away a copy of Darksiders for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and a Darksiders-branded t-shirt to go with each copy.

Instead of the usual lucky draw type of competition, we’re trying to keep things a little different here at Onelargeprawn. Based on the popularity of our play-a-game-to-win-a-game idea last year with our Boxhead competition, we’re going to ask you to do something heinous…to a turtle. You might go to hell for it, but I’d like to think the end justifies the means. ;-)

So what do you have to do? Find out after the jump.

Win a Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood Hamper

I was having a chat the other day with fellow gamer Delon from Curious Onion. He is fine in case you wanted to know. He also happens to be giving away a rocking Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood hamper that includes a branded t-shirt and bandana, a promotional copy of the game for the Xbox 360, and a set of 6 tequila shot glasses. There is no tequila in sight though – Delon could have drunk it, he is sneaky that way ;-)

In any case if you’d like to win the hamper, head on over to Curious Onion competition post and answer the simple question. The giveaway will end on July 25th.

BONUS: It turns out Delon was on the locally-produced show The Verge to demonstrate Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood. He makes a slight hash of it. See the video after the jump.

Competition: Win Watchmen Graphic Novel!

Note: This competition has ended.

“Never compromise. Not even in the face of Armageddon.” It’s with this unflinching quote from Rorschach that we happily announce another smashing competition here at Onelargeprawn.

Courtesy of local comic-book emporium Outer Limits, one lucky winner will walk away with the hardcover edition of one of the most influential graphic novels of all time, WATCHMEN! It’s an award-winning epic from writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons that recounts the fall from grace of costumed crime fighters in an alternate 1985 America. Tension between the USA and the Soviet Union is at an all-time high and it is against this backdrop that masked vigilante Rorschach and a ragtag group of superheroes attempt to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes.

Find out how you could win this amazing graphic novel after the jump.
