Coming out just in time for Thanksgiving is the second installment of The Contest Log, a new weekly feature
that helps you, the fabulous guys and gals of Destructoid, find ways to win cool videogame related stuff. There are a few minor changes this week: I’ve started flagging contests that will end before the next update with a red colour change, added in a section for community contests and made a new image header along with graphical section dividers. Unfortunately, due to my extreme suckage at photoshop, the results leave a lot to be desired but they should do for now. Who know, maybe some kind soul with more (read: ANY) design skill will offer to whip something up that won’t be so painful to look at. *hint**hint**nudge**nudge*
As before feel free to let us know about any other contests you might know of in the comments so that I can add it to the list.
