The Contest Log #5


Another Wednesday, another bundle of videogame contests you have a 1/100000* chance of winning! As per mistic’s suggestion I went ahead and added a line specifying which countr(ies)y each new contest is eligible in, unless I didn’t see it listed on the site (but for those you should probably just assume US only), to keep our non-US site members from having to click links and ending up disappointed.

And while it is in no way relevant this Greenpeace video is HILARIOUS and should be watched by everyone.

*Disclaimer: Chances to win may not be anywhere close to the suggested amount. I have no idea what I’m talking about.

About Justin Villasenorone of us since 10:40 PM on 01.17.2007

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.
