Commander Shepard’s space opera continues on January 28 when Mass Effect 2 launches on Xbox 360 and PC. You’ll have ten chances to win a copy over the next week. Here’s how.
UPDATE: This draw is now closed.
We’ve got ten copies of Mass Effect 2 to give away. Specifically:
* 2 x Mass Effect 2 Collectors Edition (Xbox 360) * 5 x Mass Effect 2 (Xbox 360) * 1 x Mass Effect 2 Collectors Edition (PC) * 2 x Mass Effect 2 (PC)
Between now and Tuesday I’ll be offering up one or more of these to win each day. Today and tomorrow we have one PC Collectors Edition up for grabs, the last of the three PC copies we’re giving away.
In Mass Effect 2, Shepard recruits a squad of the galaxy’s most elite soldiers and assassins to undertake the most dangerous mission of all. To win a copy of Mass Effect 2, we want to know which six people (real, fictional or possibly not even people – we’ll be flexible here) you would recruit to join you on the most dangerous mission of all. Tell us which six people you’d pick and why they’re right for the job.
Leave your entry in the comments below. Multiple entries will be discarded and only your first entry will count. You have until midnight Sunday to enter. The winner will be announced on Monday morning.
And congratulations to the brilliantly insane Andrew Hobbs and the lust-filled Kelly for taking out Friday’s Xbox 360 copies.
Andrew Hobbs 1. A turtle. 2. Another turtle. 3. A cat. 4. A piece of toast. 5. Butter 6. Duct tape.
It is a well known fact that once a turtle is on its back, it cannot get up again. To solve this, I would duct tape the two turtles together, back to back. In this configuration, they would be unstoppable.
It is also well know that a cat always lands feet first, and toast always lands butter side down. With this in mind, a similar scenario to the afore-mentioned turtles plays out. I butter the toast, and duct tape it to the cats back, butter side up. Combined, these two forces will create something unnatural, and totally invincible.
With these six items combined, I would then duct tape the whole thing together. With the newly-created Caturtletoast, it would be almost too easy to rule the galaxy.
Kelly My team would consist entirely of buff men. (Or buff men in training.) This will help me get over the emotional scarring I recieved from Mass Effect 1, where my (I thought) heterosexual, female Shepherd had lesbian sex without my permission, when talking to the Consort. I mean, one minute we’re talking, and the next, wham, we’re doing it in cut scene. And when I played with a male Shepherd, there was unfortunately no reciprocal hot male/male scenes available. I was miffed that Bioware catered to the fantasies of its male/lesbian player demographic, but didn’t do anything for women (or gay dudes). Choosing between Kaidan, and a stupid Asari is not a choice. Even if Kaidan was awesome.
One guy is not a choice. So here’s six to choose from:
1) An alien of the, uh, Farari, species. These look like green, totally buff men. They’re like the Asari, but they’re men. Or like men. And hotter. Y’know. 2) Kaidan. He had a lovely, gravelly voice. 3) Carth. From Knights of the Old Republic 1. He had a lovely, gravelly voice. 4) Raphael Sbarge. He has a lovely, gravelly voice. 5) Sephiroth. The first of all my video game crushes. So beautiful and yet so tormented. Hug. 6) My ex-boyfriend. The World of Warcraft addict, who couldn’t make dinner dates because of his emotional over -committment to his guild. He needs to get into shape and there’s nothing like saving the universe to help him with that. He can carry all the luggage.
