WIN! Kotaku’s Big Pile Of Crap!

WIN! Kotaku’s Big Pile Of Crap!

Wanna see some of the crap we’re giving away to one lucky Kotaku reader? Let’s delve into the pile and take a look.

As you should know, we’re giving away a big pile of crap. I get sent loads of gaming swag throughout the year and, by December, my desk is cluttered with all sorts of crap. So, to clear it out, I’m giving it all away to the reader who provides the most consistently thoughtful, articulate, helpful and worthwhile comments on the site between now and the end of the year.[imgclear]

Of course, when I say “crap” I don’t really mean that. There’s plenty of cool stuff in the Pile of Crap. Stuff like this: a SingStar pack for PS2 or PS3; a Wii Sports Resort hat; a Wii Sports Resort mini basketball; a Wii Sports Resort drink bottle; three Monkey Island pin badges; a Borderlands t-shirt; and a whole bunch of Wii games (see if you can make out their titles). So, what do you think: cool or crap?

Oh, and stay tuned for more pics from the Pile of Crap this week.


  • With a pending Wii coming into the household this Christmas I am now officially giddy with excitement over the possibility of winning this pile of gaming goodness!

    DW – You should be selling these items on ebay, think of all the kish kash you could be makin’!

  • Cool that you’re giving Spyborgs away, as well as that Borderlands T-shirt.

    I’ve heard mixed thoughts upon that game and it’s weird to me because it’s a Capcom developed game and they have released great games on the Wii including Zack & Wiki, Okami (despite it being a port from the PS2) and Resident Evil 4 (a GC/PS2 port), not to mention the upcoming titles like Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom on the Wii next year.

    Understandable that this game wasn’t developed by Capcom but I did expect Capcom to make a good game on the Wii since they know to utilise the hardware well enough. The only good review score I remember was an 7.5 from IGN.

  • It’s a brilliant haul… I’d feel guilty having it all. I’d have to share some around.

    But that Wii Sports trilby would be mine… I love wearing them!

  • I could use a new drink bottle.

    Also, why does it have to be cool OR crap? Methinks it can be considered to have both qualities.

  • Games I see:

    Star Wars Clone Wars
    Surf’s Up

    Looks OK. You must REALLY get a lot of crap, David.

  • Games include… Avatar, Facebreaker, Skate 2, Star Wars : The Clone Wars, Monopoly and Spyborgs…

    That hat looks swanky, though I would remove the Wii Sports bit and go find Yahtzee to sign it and then claim it was an original Yahtzee hat… 🙂

  • Looks like to me there’s
    -Avatar: The Last Airbender – Into The Inferno
    -Facebreaker: KO Party
    -Skate It
    -Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Lightsaber Duels
    -Monopoly And

    So far a pretty cool pile of crap (especially the Borderlands stuff)

    Would give the nintendo stuff to my nieces and nephews though because they’re getting a Wii for christmas.

  • This pile of crap is starting to look more and more like a pile of games with some free merchandise on the side! But given how you guys probably have this stuff flying in all the time, I can see why you’d feel the need to get rid of it.

  • Well sir, I am starting late, but I am sufficientlyhumbled by the examples of schwag displayed so far. The game is afoot!

  • WOW! A HAT!

    Also games and stuff. Don’t have a wii but I think my local hospital has a game setup in the kids ward, would be a good donation of some wii games.

    The Monkey Island badges would be mine however. I’d wear them on the hat and if anyone asked about them, I’d tell them they fight like a dairy farmer

  • The wii games are:
    Avatar: Into the inferno
    Facebreakers Ko Party
    Skate 2
    Star Wars the clone wars
    Thats all of them?

  • Big fat pile of Wii shovelware (except maybe spyborgs) that anyone who won would take straight down to JB-Hi-Fi to trade in. Monkey Island pins are pretty cool, as is the borderlands T-shirt.

    The wii sports resort hat WOULD be cool, if you could turn around the little band that said ‘wii sports resort’ on it 😛

    PS: This is going to cost you guys a craptonne in shipping, you’re really going to send it all to ONE guy?

  • It looks like the content of a bag that an artsy 20-something gym junkie-wannabe guy with a ‘gamer’ girlfriend would have.

    In all honesty I’ll take the hat (maybe remove the white logo band and replace it), the T-shirt and that Singstar 😀

  • :O *gasp*
    Wireless Singstar Mics! I’ve been craving to buy them for ages! It would be so much fun rocking out in Rock Band with them. My heart is beating so fast now.

  • Borderlands T’shirt?
    Cool. If I could just win this treasure trove I could wear that T’Shirt every day to remind me I haven’t bought the game yet. hehe!
