Our friends at Ubisoft have given us a ton of codes for Child of Light to hand out to the Dtoid community!

I have five codes each for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Uplay in my saucy little pocket, and all you have to do to win is leave a comment in this thread! Be sure to tell me which version(s) you prefer. You have until this Sunday at 11:59pm Pacific to enter, and the contest is open to anyone who can redeem the codes. Limit one entry per person.

Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). It's pretty great!

We've got 5,000 keys for this weekend's WildStar beta!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: The beta weekend has been extended until Monday!]

Our friends at NCSoft and Carbine Studios have hooked us up with 5,000 beta keys for their hot new MMO WildStar!

The beta weekend starts tomorrow at 7am and ends on Sunday Monday at 11:59pm Pacific. To snag your code, just head on over to your code redemption page and click the button! Once you've got your key, go sign up for an NCSoft account if you don't already have one, then click the "Apply A Code" button at the top of a page. If you like what you see, head on over to the WildStar pre-order page and secure yourself early access to the full game in late May.

Have fun! And don't forget, fans who play the beta can earn free items for launch! For each day players log into the game between now and launch (during pre-order weekends as well as Open Beta), accounts will receive 3 Boom Boxes at launch. These boxes can be used once per day to receive a random assortment of possible goodies, including XP buffs, unique runes, weapons, housing items, unique costumes, mounts, and more!

Contest: Win a custom iPad Mini courtesy of Evolution!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winner is Julian.]

To celebrate the launch of their new game Evolution on the App Store, our friends at My.com have given us a brand new, custom-skinned iPad Mini to give away to one lucky Dtoider! Retailing at $299, this 16GB iPad comes pre-loaded with a copy of Evolution, and they're throwing in a cute 3D sandstone statue of the game's "Fido" character (seen in the gallery below) to boot. Woof!

In Evolution, players step into the boots of top human operatives on a mission to explore, chart, and uncover the dark secrets of a mysterious paradise gone silent -- the planet Utopia. Players will engage in real-time battles, dive deep into the game’s storyline, and encounter dozens of complex and identifiable characters, all while discovering what truly lies beneath the ashes of a ruined planet.

To enter the contest, just leave a comment in this thread! Limit one entry per person, and you have until next Friday, April 11 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone with a US mailing address.

Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). It's pretty great!

Just click the little red chat bubble at the top center of the screen (*points* it's right there), login, and start yapping. Have fun, kids!

Friday Night Fights: Bill is dead

Welcome to another exciting edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights! As you may have gathered from the title, Bill is dead, which makes me the new Bill. Well, at least until he resurrects next week like the premature Jesus he is, anyway. But in the meantime, you're stuck with me. Only I don't remember how this is supposed to work, so... Boners?
