Portal 2 Giveaway!

UPDATE: Congratulations to ‘Rougier’ for nabbing himself a free copy of Portal 2.

For those not aware of Valve’s frankly insane marketing campaign for Portal 2… well, it’d be far to complicated to actually go into. The upshot however is that this insignificant gaming blog has a free copy of the PC version of Portal 2 to give away to someone. That someone could be you!

Instead of hosting a lazy ‘just post something in the comments’ style competition here I’ve gone one step further and am hosting a lazy ‘just post something in the comments’ style competition in our Steam Group District 16.

Here’s how you win:

1. Join this group.
2. Leave a comment here requesting Portal 2 (or, if you own Portal 2, any other Valve game – I’ve got giftable copies of pretty much all of them except TF2… and Ricochet.)
3. ??????
4. Portal 2!

Step 3 in that above process is a random draw… I should probably have been clearer on that. Keep in mind that the last time I tried to give a game away only one person entered, so you really do have a pretty good chance of winning here.

As mentioned above, I’ve got giftable copies of pretty much all the Valve games, including Left 4 Deads 1 & 2, all the Half-Life series and both Portals. I’ll pick a random person and gift them the game they want – and then maybe do this again if it’s not Portal 2, I dunno I’ve not thought this through.

I’ll have more thoughts on Portal 2 soon, but in the meantime here’s a completely spoiler free review of the game:

Is Portal 2 worth buying?

    Wait, so is there only one winner, or multiple who each get a different game? Either way, I’m entering!

      In order to get some official rules up in this place – All entries will be pooled, one winner will be picked – they’ll get the game they choose.

    *Sigh* Naming no names, a pretty simple IP address check has shown a couple of these entries were from the same person. I know it doesn’t actually say no multiple entries in the almost non-existant rules of this competition but I feel it’s covered in the Steam group’s ‘don’t be a dick’ rule. These entries are disqualified.

    Pretty stupid considering replying to this post wasn’t an entry condition and I wouldn’t have realised otherwise.
