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 Im such a nice guy
Ive decided to try and put one out every Wednesday evening. Aside from coming up with a better name Ive also stuck the current Destructoid contests in here for the sake of completeness and will put contests announced in previous entries that havent ended yet at the bottom. Id also like to add a section in future updates for contests community bloggers are running and although Im 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.
Im 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.
