I'm now prepared to survive the Fall of Cybertron

When this turned up and I opened the package, my wife said, "They sent you a lunchbox? You're an asshole." That's a fair enough assessment, I suppose.  Anyway, I got this mad tat in the mail today. It's a steel box conta...

Battlefield 3 officially beats Call of Duty ...

... At filling my desk up with all sorts of free stuff. Step up your game, Activision! In all seriousness, I promise you that I did not let any swag inflate my Battlefield 3 review score.

Lollipop Chainsaw's bloodsoaked Halloween goodie bag

Publishers send some weird things that mostly just clutter up my office (especially at this time of the year, this room looks like I've just moved with all the boxes). At least with this Lollipop Chainsaw Halloween bag, I can...

TGS: The prettiest 3DS AR card I own

I love Nintendo's AR cards and the games that use them, but there's nothing pretty about any of the ones that come with the 3DS. Now, everything is pretty when it comes to upcoming 3DS game Bravely Default. Even the AR card i...

Win a Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine chainsword! photo
Win a Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine chainsword!
by Jim Sterling

[Contest is CLOSED. Winner will be notified via Dtoid Private Message!]

We got a Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine chainsword in the mail. It's life-sized and designed for a ten-foot-tall Space Marine, so it's absolutely bloody huge. It's my new favorite thing, save for the fact I have no idea what to do with it. 

Would you like the same dilemma? Well, you can win one of these bad boys! THQ is holding a sweepstakes for one of 'em on its Facebook page. The contest runs between September 1 and September 9, and there's a whole other bunch of stuff to win as well. 

However, if you want to try and get one right now, Destructoid itself has it for grabs! If you want a chainsaw, just post a comment and tell us what the bloody hell you'd do with one. You have until September 9 to enter, and I don't need to tell you that this is for US addresses only. Sorry, but none of us are made of money.

E3: Best swag ever: Forza 4 interior detailer cleaner
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The Forza 4 party at E3 last night was home to over a dozen cars worth millions of dollars each. I've never seen Dale North happier, like ever. He wouldn't shut up about Audi this and GT-R that. I have no idea what any of that meant but I do know that the Forza party gave out the best swag ever.

Seriously, check it out. INTERIOR DETAILER CLEANER! This is great! My car is dirty as F*CK!
