Ever wanted to enter a Destructoid contest only to have the person in charge waggle his index finger and pucker his bottom lip and say "Nay Nay, my contest is open to Americans only". How gay is that? The answer? VERY. So here I present to you the Call Of Duty: First Strike Contest! Open Only To Canadian Xbox 360 owners! Give yourselves a round of applause!
I recently had this idea to gift some DLC to a friend in the United States Of America. I was hoping this particular gift could infact go towards paying for the new Black Ops Map Pack "First Strike" which hit XBLA today. Sadly because Canada is a multilingual country (damn you Canada) that actually embraces our French Canadian bretheren (WHY?) the First Strike Map Pack comes in both English & French. AKA, it ain't compatible with the American version of Black Ops. So here's where you LUCKY CANADIANS OF DESTRUCTOID COME IN.
1. Must Be Canadian: I know when your not Canadian and when your sleeping and not sleeping, I know when your awake and drinking Maple Syrup, all barrell chested with two tree trunks under each arm.
2. Must Own An Xbox 360/Xbox Live Account: Sorry Elsa, It just won't work on a PS3, I tried putting in the codes like 15 times....perhaps next time!
How To Enter
There are two ways you can enter this contest both require responding to THIS blog! I'd prefer to keep this "Call Of Duty" themed as that's what inspired me to give away the points but I'll accept answers from the "Halo" games as well if you don't play COD. So here are the questions, you can answer ONE or the other or if you're feeling ambitious you could answer BOTH but won't result in a better chance of you winning.
1. What's Your Favourite Gun and WHY is it your favourite gun for Multiplayer? (ie. if you prefer it because of some of the accessories that make it a better gun be sure to add that in your answer)
2. What's Your Favourite Perk and WHY is it your favourite perk for Multiplayer? (ie. because Ghost keeps you off the radar when a Spy Plane goes up or in Halo's case because the "Jetpack" allows me to rain death from above!
You have DOUBLE THE CHANCE OF WINNING as I have two count 'em TEE DOUBLE U OHH 1400 Point Microsoft Gift Cards to give away to you the "Lucky Canadians Of Destructoid". Use the points for whatever your heart desires be it ridiculously overpriced DLC like the latest Call Of Duty Black Ops Map Pack "First Strike" or ridiculous Avatar gear like this!
Contest Ends This Thursday February 3rd 2011 at 12:00 Noon EST. I'll throw up a blog a few hours later and announce the winners, to which I'll PM you on Destructoid (or Twitter if you prefer) the code for the points. Thanks Guys and Good Luck to all those who enter!
