WIN! Two Copies Of Mass Effect 2 On Xbox 360

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: Friday's 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 we have two copies on Xbox 360. It may not be the Collectors Edition, but you've got twice the chance to win.

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 tonight to enter. The winners will be announced tomorrow and stay tuned for a new draw over the weekend.

Good luck!

Oh, and congratulations to Steven Bogos and Adam Grabda for winning yesterday's PC draw. They both took the unconventional route and it paid off. Here's their deadly squads of six...

Steven Bogos: 1: An Action hero 2: An Internet Meme 3: A Sci-Fi reference 4: A Video Game Character 5: A Historical Figure 6: A personal friend

Adam Grabda: 1. Wii Fit 2. Wii Sports Resort 3. Wii Play 4. Mario Kart 5. New Super Mario Bros. 6. Wii Fit Plus

    Wow!! Michael Vick survived into CDR Sheppard's time

    My Team Discovery Channel

    1, Bruce Lee, in low gravity he would be lethal, plus dubbed speech paths would be awesome.

    2, Fat Jesus (Alan in The hangover). The wolf pack speech and the best of friend’s song would boost even the lowest of moral.

    3, Zim from Invader Zim, Anyone that destroys their home planet is a keeper, also his quest to destroy humans gives much needed empathy to the geth.

    4, Richard Dean Anderson, the very nucleus of Macgyver and Col Jack O’Neil

    5, L. Ron Hubbard, his intergalactic networking skills and understanding of thetan, money can’t buy that.

    6, Tyra Banks, I need someone that can relate to my ever growing fear of dolphins, who bare some resemblance to the geth.(yes she has dolphobia)

    Go team Discovery Channel.

    Sweet! Those 6 are STILL dominating! ;)

    Cheers again to David, Kotaku, Bioware and EA.

    1. Miranda Kerr- Sex appeal
    2. Jennifer Hawkins- Sex appeal
    3. Jessica Alba- Sex appeal
    4. Megan Fox (minus the toe-thumb)- Sex appeal
    5. Seth Rogan- Sex appeal

    The six people (real, fictional or possibly not even people) I would recruit to join me on the most dangerous mission of all are:

    1. Sarah Connor from Terminator - she is determined and crazy, dangerous missons run through her veins

    2. Alice from Resident Evil - she is tough and rugged and suffers from amnesia so she would just keep coming back for more!

    3. Lara Croft - she is a reckless English archaeologist-adventurer and is looking for danger!

    4. Michelle Rodriguez - is dangerous in her private life with hit n runs and getting into fights as well as on the screen.

    5. Orihime from Bleach - She has a tendency to rush into situations without thinking and would dazzle any opponent with her beauty.

    6. Tank Girl - this outlaw could drive the team around in her tank leading them into all types of dangerous missions with her to random acts of sex and violence

    1. Bruce Willis - Because he's John Motherfucking Mclane, that's why! He took on a skyscraper full of terrorists with nothing but a wifebeater and an extensive vocabulary of profanities! Admittedly, the plan may backfire when, weary from battle, I begin to question whether he's been dead the entire time.

    2. Christine Hendricks - Have you seen this woman? HAVE YOU? I rest my case.

    3. Verne Troyer - Because sometimes in a fight, when things appear their most dire, you have to throw a midget at somebody. It may not be the greatest offensive tactic, but I'll be damned if it isn't hilarious.

    4. Mike Tyson - In all honesty I didn't want to recruit him at all, but he was very insistent on coming along. Tell me, would you be willing to say no to him? I mean, in the middle of conversation, the man coughed up a hearing aid covered in blood for God's sake!

    5. An extensive collection of pornography - Let's face it, Christina Hendricks probably has standards.

    6. A fridge - It will keep my beer cold and it's apparently resistant to nuclear explosions, what more could I want? Draw a face on it and it even becomes my best friend once the insanity kicks in.

    Universe, prepare to be saved, you son of a bitch.

    1) Batman - arguably the only person needed, he has a plan for every situation, he knows how to exploit an enemies weakness i.e. kryptonite ring to beat superman

    2) Pokemon Trainer - Pokemon are strong by themselves, having an entire party of them under the control of a trainer on my team would be unstopable

    3) Jack sparrow - Able to bluff his way out of any situation, his 'just crazy enough to work' plans will spring us from any sticky spot. A full grown male grizzle Bear - It might not be smart or even capable of weilding techonology, but 500 kgs of fur and muscle should never be argued with.

    4) A full grown male grizzle Bear - It might not be smart or even capable of weilding techonology, but 500 kgs of fur and muscle should never be argued with.

    5) Fry - As well as being slow and dimwitted Fry brings no combat talent to the team, but somehow in the end he manages to save the day through sheer dumb luck.

    6) Stanley Kubrick - Someone needs to film the greatest showdown in the history of the universe, Space Oddessy: 2183 doesn't have any monoliths but it has everything else.

    Taking a leaf out of a Monty Python sketch (…), I thought I’d theme my list a touch differently:

    1. Bruce Campbell – Keeps a cool head when dealing with deadites, mummies and Spider-man. Handy with a shotgun and a one-liner.
    2. Bruce Willis – Impervious to damage, his wife-beater-and-dirt-encrused-face are synonymous with the underdog winning the day. Yippee-ki-aye, m-
    3. Bruce Wayne - …he’s Batman.
    4. Bruce Banner – You won’t like him when he’s angry. And neither will the Geth. Or rogue Spectres. Or your team-mates…
    5. Bruce Springsteen – If you’re saving the universe, having a rocking anthem wouldn’t do you any harm.
    6. Bruce Lee – Sure, they have biotic powers. He’s got the one-inch punch

    Is there a single better name?!


    My Mum
    Your Mum
    His Mum,
    Her Mum,
    Step Mum,
    Mum's mum.

    1. The Incredible Hulk (HULK SMASH!)
    – for any heavy lifting that needs doing.

    2. War (From darksiders)
    – come on, the guy’s a bad ass

    3. Chuck Norris
    – Chuck Norris doesn’t have a control key on his computer, Chuck Norris is always in control

    4. R2D2
    come on, it’s R2D2

    5. some rather attractive female
    (come on, it get’s lonely in space)

    6. Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law

    Wow, its kinda hard to choose a party, but ill do my best.

    1. An Unlikely Hero – Me:
    While i may not be space cowboy, or a inter galactic general, my dedication will help keep this group together, we shall not fail.

    If our party happens to fail, i have no one else to blame but myself.

    2. The Sexy Assassin – Bayonetta:
    A party always needs a person who you can rely on to get the dirty jobs done, and with this choice i get to assassinate my enemies with style.

    With her legs, they should die smiling.

    3. The Comic Relief – Simon Pegg:
    He has been in many movies from battling zombies to space battles. If i wanted anyone to give me a good laugh in the face of danger, it would be him.

    4. The Bad Ass – Reggie Fils-Aime:
    Who else would you want, with skills like “kicking ass” and “taking names” what boss would be able to stand up to us?

    And with a cash flow as big as his, we would always have money for upgrades.

    5. The Rock – The Rock:
    The Universe is under threat, the people needs a champion, and there is only one peoples champion.

    He has a Game Plan, Walking Tall, no one can stand up to us, not even the Tooth Fairy.

    6. The Spy – Sean Connery:
    In a universe where the lives are shaken, not stirred, the times need a smooth spy, one who laughs in the face of danger.

    No woman will be able to resist his charms, and able to get out of any situation, no matter how dire. He is the perfect choice.

    1. Fedor Emelienenko - 33 professional MMA matches and no losses (don't argue about Kohsaka, that wasn't a loss). The toughest mutha on earth.

    2. Bruce Banner - Super smart scientist, and if he gets shot, he'll get angry.....and you wouldn't like him when he's angry.

    3. Thanos - Outer space is his 'hood. Possesses superhuman strength and has already been augmented via bionic amplification, mysticism, and the entity Death....which is pretty cool. Oh! and he can travel through time and parallel universes too......also, Infinity Gauntlet

    4. Station (Bill & Teds Bogus Journey) - The most brilliant scientist in the entire universe, and can build good robot us's to defeat bad robot us's....if that happens.

    5. Lobo (DC Comics) - A total bad-ass immortal that can clone himself AND TRACK SOMEONE ACROSS A GALAXY BY HIS SENSE OF SMELL!!! He's totally awesome with explosives and hooks on chains.

    6. Broly - His power is maximum.

    1. Jay Leno - For his ability to steal
    2. Conan 'O' Brien - For his ability to do a deal
    3. David Letterman - For his ability to kick when their down
    4. CBS - For their ability to kill stuff
    5. My Mum - She has a viperous tongue!

    1. The Doctor (Doctor Who) (Preferably David Tenant’s Doctor) – even without his TARDIS, he seems to be able to find a way out of any situation, normally without even needing to incur any casualties. Capable of getting information from anyone, the Doctor also has an unmatched knowledge of the universe and basically everything in it. Adding a load of paragon and conscience to the party, The Doctor still manages to be that guy no one wants to be on the bad side of. Quirky and funny.

    2. Mal Reynolds (Firefly) – can casually out-shoot any opponent (just look at the fed in the first episode!). Adds a nice flair of humour and can be a real arse to anyone who gets in his way.

    3. Echo (Dollhouse) – with the right imprint, Echo could be the most useful member of the team, capable of having any skill, talent or even accent! Master of espionage and everything else, Echo also serves as the necessary token hot-chick and possible love interest?

    4. Dr Gregory House (House M.D) – His analytical mind would be unmatched on any other team and would serve well to solve any problems that the team come across (like the Tower’s of Hanoi from ME1). Most importantly, House has the epic heals.

    5. Magneto (Xmen) – There is no chance that the Geth or any other kind of synthetic robot army can stand up the this man. With Magneto on the team, any approaching droid would simply be torn to pieces and tied into a knot!

    6. Jeremy Clarkson (Top Gear) – While the Stig may be some people’s first choice for team driver, you have to remember that Clarkson can do a couple of things the Stig just doesn’t seem to be capable of, the least of which is talk. As well as this, Clarkson seems able to easily outwit and insult anyone he comes across as well as bring great publicity and possibly some controversy. Most importantly of all…POWERRRR!

    Winners like that make me think that you don't read or care about what people write...

    I could have just shit on my keyboard and had a better chance of winning.


        Maybe he's just trolling, David. Perhaps the joke is on US?

      My six were the top selling retail games, they have been the topping the charts for months.

      I did actually have a little bi-line that said that they have dominated the charts for so long, why not expand to the galaxy.

      Still a few more prizes to be won, so keep trying!

    Kirby – Who doesn’t want to see Geth Kirby, Krogan Kirby, Turian Kirby and Asari Kirby?
    Tingle – A useful team member when exploring, Tingle can fly ahead of the group with his balloon and map out the environment. If that’s not enough, he can even drop bombs on your enemies (he’s also a master quasar player).
    Mr Resetti - In a tight spot? Call on Mr Resetti’s “Yell” ability. Before you know it he’ll pop out of the ground in front of your enemies and give them a tongue lashing like never before. Your foe’s will be crying and begging for forgiveness within seconds.
    Barbarella – Miss the sex scenes from Mass Effect 1? Well in the sequel Barbarella will help you to unwind......AFTER EVERY MISSION.......FOR EVERY CREW MEMBER. That’s right, Barbarella will have your entire crew in such a state of elation that they couldn’t care less if the Reapers wiped out the entire Universe.
    Magikarp – He can splash water on enemies?.............just you wait till he evolves, then you’ll be sorry. Magikarp’s inventory consists of only one item.....EXP Share.

    1. James Cameron
    - He can bore enemies to death with slick 3D graphics and terribly trite story lines.

    2. George Lucas
    - He can confuse enemies by writing the best sci-fi movie of all time and then the worst sci-fi movie of all time.

    3. Tim Burton
    - He can confound enemies with his weird and twisted vision. And he'd bring Johnny Depp which is an extra bonus.

    4. Peter Jackson
    - He can introduce the enemy to the Feebles.

    5. Duncan Jones
    - He can teach all the other directors how it's done. Also, he's David Bowie's son, so a double extra bonus.

    6. Michael Bay
    - because shit needs to blow up.

    1. Wrex.
    2. Shepard.
    3. Wrex...
    4. Shepard...
    5. Wrex.........
    6. Shepard...........

    1. Tom Cruise. He is a 247th Level scientologist, so he has unlocked the high end skills of contacting the invisible alien ships that are hanging out above earth... Also in a tight spot he can jump up and down on couches to distract huge crowds of women, allowing stealth teams to slip by.

    2. A Can opener. because what easier way to open up a geth?

    3. Bayonetta. We could really use a chick who can do the splits whilst shooting not one, but two pistols at once. Plus when she really gets into it, her clothes flow off... stunning the enemy, and then eventually killing them!!

    4. Arthas Menethil. He commands a never ending army of undead minions.. has sick looking armour AND doesnt need air and is immune to cold... would be good for sending him out to fix holes in the hull of the ship!

    5.Doctor Phil. When guns and grenades just wont cut it.. this guy can sit your foes down, breaking up their psyche and getting down to the root of thier issues.. giving them new direction in life and ideas on how to achieve interstellar domination WITHOUT having to resort to violence or genocide against humans.

    6. Claire Bennet (heroes). umm.... she can't die? and is super hot?? i dont feel this needs any more explaination :)

    1. Silent BOB
    2. Jay
    3. Randal
    4. Dante
    5. dolph lundgren
    6. lando calrissian only black guy ever to fly the millenium falcon

    1. A furry companion, because It's neccessary that every game must have a animal sidekick.
    2. A doctor. Rather self-explanatory.
    3. A cook, we can't save humanity with empty stomachs.
    4. The designer from 'Pimp my Ride', so we can go through space in style.
    5. An attractive person. Again self-explanatory.
    6. An alien so everyone around us can see we are totally not rascist, before we backhand them for the hell of it.
