We've got 5,000 codes for the Swordsman closed beta!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Our friends at Perfect World have hooked us up with 5,000 keys for the closed beta of their new martial arts MMO Swordsman! And in addition to the closed beta, these codes also unlock a Dtoid and E3-exclusive fluffy little lamb that you can hold in your hand and also speaks to you. You know, just what you always think about when you think about Destructoid.

The closed beta ends later this week, so get on it! Thankfully, the unlockables will still be there for you once the game goes into open beta, so you won't be without your fluffy little lamb for long.

To claim your code, click here! (Huge members can snag their reserved codes right here!) Then, just follow the instructions below to redeem. Have fun!

Contest: Win your choice of a PS4, Xbox One or Wii U! photo
Contest: Win your choice of a PS4, Xbox One or Wii U!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Update: Contest ends in a week. You could be our amazing weiner, dog! Good luck.

Destructoid is giving away a free next-gen console! That's right: one lucky Dtoider will get his or her choice of a free Xbox One (minus Kinect), PlayStation 4, or Wii U (deluxe bundle), and all you have to do to enter is push a couple buttons!

To compete, just push the big blue Enter button below and follow the instructions to earn entries. It's that simple! Of course, our Huge members don't need to do a thing; your membership already grants you automatic entry in full. (You can always enter manually to up your odds, though!) Oh, and one more thing: this contest is open to anyone in the world! (Cash value will be rewarded to international winner. For full contest rules, click here.)

Update: As many of you noticed, votes are verified LockerDome, which (amongst other things) makes sure cheaters aren't creating 9999 Dtoid accounts to win. The app wants permissions to use your social media to post (if you allow) but please note they're a legit company not super interested in spying on all your cat photos. You can revoke access, etc, like any other app that uses social connect.

Good luck!
