Contest: Win a Titan One cross-compatibility gaming device!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Our friends at ConsoleTuner have given us five of their new Titan One cross-compatibility devices to hand out to the Destructoid community!

These things are incredibly awesome. Compatible with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, they are the ultimate solution for the problem of not being able to use your favorite controller on every console. And because of the ability to swap button layouts, gamers can use this to adjust their controllers to their personal tastes (something especially important to you southpaw gamers). Plus, there's the GamePack feature: with a GamePack loaded, you get all the cool features that modded controllers can provide, without having to modify your controller and void your warranty.

For a chance to win one of these cool devices for yourself, just leave a comment below! Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone with a US shipping 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). Try us out!

Contest: Win your choice of a PS4, Xbox One or Wii U!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Update: Contest ends in a week. You could be our amazing weiner, dog! Good luck.

Destructoid is giving away a free next-gen console! That's right: one lucky Dtoider will get his or her choice of a free Xbox One (minus Kinect), PlayStation 4, or Wii U (deluxe bundle), and all you have to do to enter is push a couple buttons!

To compete, just push the big blue Enter button below and follow the instructions to earn entries. It's that simple! Of course, our Huge members don't need to do a thing; your membership already grants you automatic entry in full. (You can always enter manually to up your odds, though!) Oh, and one more thing: this contest is open to anyone in the world! (Cash value will be rewarded to international winner. For full contest rules, click here.)

Update: As many of you noticed, votes are verified LockerDome, which (amongst other things) makes sure cheaters aren't creating 9999 Dtoid accounts to win. The app wants permissions to use your social media to post (if you allow) but please note they're a legit company not super interested in spying on all your cat photos. You can revoke access, etc, like any other app that uses social connect.

Good luck!

[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.]

Vlambeer's customisable dogfighter Luftrausers released last week to near-universal praise after an agonising wait in certification that may or may not have contributed to my impending mental breakdown.

One half of the indie duo, Rami Ismail, was kind enough to give me five Steam codes to celebrate the launch and while I'm reluctant to give even more people the opportunity to beat my high score, I should probably share.

Live Show: Let's mess with Phil while playing Dark Souls 2 photo
Live Show: Let's mess with Phil while playing Dark Souls 2
by Spencer Hayes

While I was growing up my mother always taught me that revenge was a dish best served cold. Well Mom, today the dish is being served lukewarm. If you checked out our previous Dark Souls 2 stream you'll remember that Phil insisted in trying to mess with me while I played the already difficult game. This culminated in my threat to wear Phil's teacup poodle Hank as a hat. I'm not proud of that.

Now the shoe is on the other foot. That's right, I get to mess with Phil in any and every way that you all want. Hell yes! And if that's not enough craziness for you, we're ending the show with some Goat Simulator. So buckle up kiddos, things are about to go nuts just at 2PM PDT over on Dtoid.tv! Make sure you're there for all of the insanity!

[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.]

Those sexy devils at Devolver Digital have given us 10 codes for Shadow Warrior: Special Edition to hand out to lucky Dtoiders!

To say I came away impressed by Lo Wang's hefty offering wouldn't even begin to do the game justice. It features some of the most satisfying swordplay I've ever experienced outside of my own bedroom, gorgeous graphics, and more juvenile potty humor than you can shake your stick at. What's not to love?

Well now you have the chance to try it out for yourself! To enter, just leave a comment below telling me what you would do with Lo Wang's sword if you had it in real life. Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Sunday, January 26 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. The contest is open to anyone who can redeem a Steam code.

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!
