The Contest Log: Grand Opening Edition


After I put together a list of contests last week I got to thinking that it might be something that deserves a weekly update and because I’m such a nice guy I’ve decided to try and put one out every Wednesday evening. Aside from coming up with a better name I’ve also stuck the current Destructoid contests in here for the sake of completeness and will put contests announced in previous entries that haven’t ended yet at the bottom. I’d also like to add a section in future updates for contests community bloggers are running and although I’m going to start trying to keep my eyes open for them you can always PM me a link to your blog entry to make sure it gets added.

I’m still experimenting with the format so if you have any suggestions feel free to let me know. Also, if there are any other cool (videogame related) contests going on that you know about feel free to let us know in the comments.

Hey all, I've been hanging around Destructoid since late 2006. I joined the staff in 2007 as a News Contributor after flooding the tip line on a daily basis, and then I got to write stuff on the front page. Now I mostly just bum around while doing grad school stuff.
