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 giant Plants Vs Zombies t-shirt; a Resident Evil: Darkside Chronciles Wii Zapper bundle; a bag of various GTA IV stickers; one Red Dead Redemption sticker; a pack of Red Dead Redemption postcards; five Ballad of Gay Tony stickers; two SingStar PS3 games (Take That and Motown); Plants Vs Zombies for PC; a Plants Vs Zombies sticker; a “console toolkit” featuring various screwdrivers; two fluffy toys that I cannot remember what game they arrived with. So, what do you think: cool or crap?

And that’s a wrap for the Pile of Crap.

I’ve still got more stuff here that I didn’t get around to photographing: a Plants Vs Zombies mouse pad; some Dragon Ball toys; several more Rockstar t-shirts; an Uncharted 2 press kit; a Ratchet & Clank press kit plus game signed by the development team at Insomniac; something to do with Mini Ninjas; some iPhone stickers; and some other stuff I can’t even remember.

I’ll throw it all – and more, probably – into the swag bag the winner will receive in the new year. Good luck!


  • So there’s even MORE stuff? How big a box are you going to need to ship it all??

    Pretty cool bunch of stuff again though

  • Mr Spoon covets the prize. Mr Spoon worries he is not a regulart poster and cannot visit Kotaku as often as he would like. Mr Spoon must endure…

  • Some nice things there… though, much wanted are the Uncharted 2 press kit & Ratchet & Clank press kits… Awesome!

    Considering this the last Pile of Crap post, likely also be one of the most popular and seeing as though the readership maybe rather busy tomorrow and well, will there be anyone here? :p

    So Merry Christmas to everyone that floats around the Kotaku website, hope everyone has a great day, good food and spirits!

    Lastly, for the Singstar PS3 owners, if you haven’t already done it the cheap/cheat way, remember to at least fire the game up tomorrow to gain the Christmas Trophy, for playing the game on Christmas.

  • “…a Ratchet & Clank press kit plus game signed by the development team at Insomniac…”

    No way… that was my favourite game of the year! Crack in Time was such a fun game, and had a great story. I even cried at the end.

    And that Plants vs. Zombies t-shirt… I love it. More than ever, thank you for this, and I really, REALLY, hope I win.

  • If I were to somehow win this stuff I can almost guarantee I will wear/stick/fiddle/read/play with everything at once and take a photo of it for all to see (laugh at).

  • Y’know, you should probably do this two or three times a year, since you seem to get so much stuff. Easter time is an obvious one. Call it the Great Kotaku Easter Bag of Crap. Guaranteed to beat any other Easter bag out there. Not that it’s much of a challenge to beat the other bags; their crap is a few orders of magnitude lower on the craptastic scale.

  • Those fuzzy puff toys are called Chuzzles! They’re from a somewhat educational puzzle game distributed by Mindscape. I have an orange one.

  • Ok unorthodox entry time! w00t!!

    i know this isn’t in the terms of the competition, but hey i thought i’d revist some old competition models with this competition as their themes.

    A big box of crap
    It is desirable
    Trade you my sister?

    There once was a box full of crap
    Sitting proud upon david’s lap
    “you could all win”
    He said with a grin
    Causing hundreds of geeks to fap

    Dave’s box of crap: ok… but where’s my pony?

    and thats all she wrote folks… did i say she…. he… i meant he…

  • “educational” and “game” in the same sentence? Never. Well, apart from “Nothing educational is a game.”

    But that stuff is pretty good, the stickers and Plants vs Zombies stuff are nice. Also Darkside Chronicles looks sweet. Does it come bundled with the Zapper, as I still don’t own one?

  • What’re you guys going to do with all this stuff if you win? I don’t own every console, but I’m sure my friends and the uni games club’ll appreciate a few donations. 😉

    • Anything i can’t use or don’t have the room for i’d probably share it with other Kotaku paticipants – it doesn’t seem right to me to sell this stuff. David is good enough to give it away, so we should have the decency to share the love – and seeing as most of my friends aren’t gamers, Kotaku seems like the perfect place to share that love to.

  • Wow, dark side chronicles bundle is an added bonus. Was kinda bummed that i missed out on winning the darkside zombie picture comp, so FINGERS CROSSED!

    The other stuff is pretty cool, i’m eager to try out plants vs zombies, as i was a big fan of peggle

  • Its christmas day and after seeing all of my presents… this is still more awesome than all of them combined.

    DW, are you a klepto by any chance?

    Also, I might have a chance of fitting into that shirt 🙂

  • NO crap there.
    Wow you got the only Chuzzle soft toy I don’t have, the Blue one. My precious right there.
    Love that T’shirt too.

    Complete treasure I say.
