Now, I'd love to give everyone who participated a prize. Honestly, I would This has been damned fun to run, and I hope even the people walking away with nothing but their memories of this can look back and call it an interesting experience, but right now... Blasto and SuperMonk4Ever each win a copy of Gears of War 3: Epic Edition, as well as Blasto getting an additional prize of a bunch of cool action figures.
So you two, I'll be in contact tonight about sending you some free, awesome shit.
Now it's time for me to hang up my admittedly feather-filled Contestoid hat. At least until the new year. Even without the rush of fall games, this final quarter of the year is financially crippling for me. Three of my best friends have birthdays in the next month, and that doesn't take into account my family members with birthdays... Or Christmas. I have a large, extended family who I'm kinda close with. We're actually a clan, to use the classic term.
You guys think I'm generous with strangers. Man, if you ain't my friend or family, you ain't seen nothin'.
My wallet weeps looking at the next few months and Destructoid, I'm sorry... But my wallet has no room for you for a little while. I'd feel worse, but by the time I'll have shipped this contest's prizes out I'll have dropped what... just shy of a grand on you guys this year?
Don't worry. I'll be back to throwing random people random free shit soon enough. And you bastards have family and friends to give you Christmas gifts anyway. So keep an eye out for more opportunities for me to make you dance for my amusement come the new year.
Big thanks to everyone who participated thus far!
