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

Contest: Your first Xbox One or PS4 game is on us
by Niero Gonzalez

[Update: Contest over! Winners are ShiroYasha, KilpiBan, JONtoidColor, and Mr Grrrr!]

The PS4 and Xbox One are around the corner. You're gonna need games. We're happy to buy your first. Here's our first contest to win your way to a bigger next-gen collection!

Starting from right now until the systems are released, *FOUR* lucky Destructoid readers will win a copy of any game ($65 or less) of your choice, for either system. All you simply have to do is place a comment below stating which game you'd like and for which system. You may only enter once, and please make sure your email address is on file so I can contact you if you if you're our lucky winner. I'll update this post with two winners at the PS4 launch, and two at the Xbox. Games or platforms not yet shipping at time of winning will be made as pre-orders on your behalf. M-Rated prizes may require a phone call to your mother.

No gamer left behind: International readers are also eligible to win, too (via cash voucher).

We're also happy to announce an enhanced perk for HUGE Members: Double Contest Entries. To be honest, this one was kind of accidental: our software randomly chooses a random manual entry or a random upgraded account. Since you're allowed to participate in contests manually and may also might win automatically, you actually have double the odds of winning. HUGE international members also get the cash equivalent if they win. Whoot.

Good luck!

Contest: Win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 from Dtoid and Kabam! photo
Contest: Win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 from Dtoid and Kabam!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Grand prize winner is The Deeg (thanks for being HUGE!), and runners-up are hlarge4 and ASaiyan!]

Our friends at Kabam are celebrating the launch of the newest dragon in Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon, and to mark the occasion they've given us a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to hand out to the Destructoid community!

First, a bit about the newest dragon:

From the earliest times, Water Dragons have been seen in the world's great oceans and deepest lakes. The Water Dragon is a rare breed, a majestic aquatic creature, a behemoth that reigns the deepest seas of Atlantis. The Ancients befriended the Water Dragons centuries ago, and with the Water Dragons' help, the Ancients learned to master the element of water. Building a Water Dragon Keep (Water Island) will allow you to construct additional buildings in your City, including Pearl Farms which are required to train the deadly Fangtooth aquatic warriors.

Nice! To enter, just leave a comment in this thread with the name you would give your pet Water Dragon if you had one. (I'd name mine Delores.) Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Sunday, September 29 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone with a U.S. mailing address.

Two runners-up will win dragon plush toys and some branded M&Ms. Yum! Good luck!
