So... I won the Wii U!



Out of the 1000 people upvoted to be entered into the competition, I, somehow, came out on top. And seriously, I'm almost positive some mistake has been made, because I just don't win things (apart from the dance competition i was entered into when I was 6). For example, when I was 14 I was an avid chess player, and participated in many tournaments. During one of these events, I cheated to ensure my progression to the next round by distracting my opponent and moving his king into a place where i could have him in 3-4 moves.

I still lost.

I haven't been a member of this site for what would be considered a long time (just over a year perhaps?), but it seriously is the only place I go to for my gaming news. Mainly due to the fact that I'm incredibly lazy, but also due to the great community and honest opinions. It seriously is the best gaming site around, and i was in no way paid with the Wii U to say these nice things. Honest.

The last Nintendo console i owned was the Gamecube, but the last Nintendo console I loved (and still own) is the N64. So many great memories with that beauty of a machine. I pray for the day they release a new B&K that isn't about building vehicles. But, as rare no longer works for Ninty, it shan't be on the Wii U, which is a massive shame.

But back to the point, I cant wait to get away from the onslaught of FPS that i normally play, and get back to some sexy Mario action. And not to forget ZombiU, it seriously looks and sounds like the zombie game i have been waiting for forever.

So, as a closing statement I would just like to thank Dtoid for gifting me with this, for all the people who upvoted my mostly terrible comments, and a special thank you to our fuzzy faced mod, Mr Andy Dixon, for pestering me enough that i actually looked at my emails and noticed that I'd won!

Oh, and i thought you would at least like to see the mug of the guy you (yes, you) helped to win, so here i am. On the left. With my special looking friend.



Edit: After actually reading the competition rules, I have spotted that I will actually be receiving the cash equivalent, and will have to go out and buy my own Wii U, which i am utterly disgraced by and refuse to do.
