Every day this week we're giving away some badass Borderlands swag plus a copy of the game on Xbox 360. If you'd like to win, read on.
UPDATE: Tuesday's draw closed at midnight. Entries received after midnight are ineligible. Wednesday's draw is now open.
Thanks to our good friends at 2K Games each day this week we'll be giving away the following:
* A copy of Borderlands for Xbox 360 * A Borderlands t-shirt * A Borderlands mug * A Borderlands kitbag * A Borderlands notebook * A Boderlands cap * And a Borderlands retro tape player USB
Borderlands is the imminent - it's out on Thursday! - role-playing shooter from Gearbox Software. It might not be the Citizen Kane of games, but it is - in the words of Gearbox president Randy Pitchford - totally badass. We've played it, several times in fact, and we dig it.
One of the more intriguing aspects of the game is its procedurally generated weapon system, which randomise a host of factors to ensure that you'll rarely find two weapons that are the same. Gearbox claim there are more weapons in Borderlands than in every other shooter this console generation combined.
But perhaps you can come up with a weapon they haven't got.
To be in the running to win, we want you to describe the Borderlands weapon you'd use to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Leave your weapon name and description in the comments below. Humour and creativity will be rewarded, as per usual Kotaku competition lines.
To be eligible for today's draw, you must leave your comment by midnight tonight. You're allowed one entry per day. If you want to enter in tomorrow's draw, you must comment on that post with a brand new weapon idea.
And for all those who entered yesterday, Monday's lucky winner is...
"asimovy" for the weapon called the Phat Looter. S/he clearly gets what Borderlands is all about.
"Using the amazing power of science, the Phat Looter will suck up all available loot from enemies in a 100 meter radius. Without needing to kill them!
But thats not all! The phat Looter's secondary fire mode will launch all sub-par or useless loot back at the enemy dealing huge damage! Just in case they want their loot back!"
