Contest: Death Tank super tank 'shoop and haiku of death XBLA giveaway! [UPDATE]

This creepy old man on the bus was saying to me that there is nothing more awesome in life than death and tanks. Since he was wearing a shoe for a hat and smelled of old fish, I told him to take a hike, but he was right.

Tanks, and death, especially when combined together, can be pretty frickin' awesome. For that reason alone, Snowblind Studios, Inc. and Flat Games made Death Tank: the tank that eats* ... Wait, no. Death Tank the game, now available for  Xbox Live Arcade!

Not only that, they felt that the wanted to give this game to the Destructoid community. Not up on Death Tank? Then read below.

Death Tank is a fast-paced action game requiring quick reflexes and cunning strategy. Devastating weapons and unique items give your tank unlimited destructive power. Eight separate landscapes react to tank combat, altering their shape when hit and providing an ever changing environment in which to play. Players can battle friends or the computer in single player combat. Through Xbox Live, up to eight tanks can simultaneously enter the Death Tank arena for exciting team play or a chaotic free-for-all. Crisp graphics and amazing effects, coupled with addictive game play makes each battle a visceral experience.

Now to get yourself one of the five free XBLA codes for Death Tank, all you have to do is win this contest. And since I couldn't decide what would be better, a Photoshop contest or a haiku writing one, I decide to combine them both.

For Photoshop entries, just make a pic that combines Death (death with capital D, not just things that are dead; think, reaper) with a tank. It must be a real 'shoop that you made and not something you ripped off of Google.  For the haiku, you must follow the 5-7-5 rules of haiku and use the words "death" and "tank," but you can only use them ONCE.

Contest begins now, and you have until 10pm PST on Friday the 27th to post your entries in the comments below. Haiku and 'shoops will be judged equally. One is not better than the other as long as they follow the guidelines, and are awesome.

*I couldn't resist making the Patton Oswalt reference, sorry.  

[Update: Check, check, check it out! Since the contest entries have been just as awesome as I hoped they would be, the fine folks at Snowblind Studious have supllied FIVE MORE CODES! That brings the contest giveaway total to ten free games for the awesome winners of the contest.

But here's the twist! They are loving the the crazy haiku and Photoshop action soooo much, that they asked for the contest to be extended until Sunday, 10pm PST, so that they can see even more 'shoop awesome and haiku of death insanity. 

I think that's fair, don't you? Show 'em whatcha got, guys!]

When not protecting the world from the injustices on all things non-awesome, I have some time to play some games. Not much time, but I do what I can. There's a lot of non-awesome in the world, ... more
