WIN! Aliens Vs Predator Hunter Edition On PC

Our week-long Aliens Vs Predator giveaway continues today with PC Hunter Edition up for grabs. And we find out who won yesterday's 360 draw.

UPDATE: Thursday's draw closed at midnight.

Thanks to Sega we have SIX copies of Aliens Vs Predator, the new first-person shooter from Rebellion launching today, to give away. From now until the weekend we'll be giving away one copy per day across PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

They're not just any old copies though, they're the Hunter Edition. That's the very limited edition that includes: * The game * Steelbook case * Four bonus multiplayer maps * A replica mouldable facehugger * A Weyland sleeve badge * A 3D lenticular card

That's right, I said replica mouldable facehugger.

To enter today's draw for the PC edition you're going to have to write a limerick that begins: "There once was an alien/a predator/a colonial marine named..." (Just choose one!)

You've got until midnight tonight to leave your limerick in the comments below. No multiple entries are allowed. However, you may of course enter tomorrow's draw.

And the winner of Wednesday's 360 draw is Phillip Mayes for his puntastically giggle-worthy haiku:

Dear Alien Queen Sorry bout the scrambled eggs Lots of love, Ripley

[Terms and Conditions]


    There once was a colonial marine named Stace,
    who was stationed somewhere in space,
    she went to the dance,
    would not drop her pants,
    so the alien impregnated her face.

    There once was an alien queen
    who spawned to make people scream
    the terror she caused
    was worth the applause
    but now I can no longer dream

    How I laugh as I
    Set my explosives no one
    Will say I’m ugly

      It's limerick day today.

    There once was an alien named Fred
    Who wanted to bite off your head
    Tried as he might
    He put up a fight,
    But that airlock ensured he was dead.

    There once was an a predator called Clancy,
    he hunted anything and everything he fancied.
    he spied an alien queen,
    then emptied his bowels crystal clean,
    and the marine yelled "OMG YOU F**KING NANCY"

    That Xbox 360 winner's Haiku sucked, there were way better ones than that

      Not really a fair statement to make..

      How would you like someone telling you your entries 'suck'?

      First of all the winner far from sucks. It is exactly the type of thing that wins prizes constantly here. It's topical and witty and i don't see why it wouldn't deserve a win.

      Secondly, yesterday was FULL of fantastic entires and unfortunately not all of them can win (as much as i would kill for this prize lol).

      Everyone's favorite is a matter of personal opinion, and in this case kotaku's opinion says this guy is the winner fair and square.

      So how about instead of touting thats the entry is FAIL, either be constructive and congratulate the winner or occupy your idle fingers and opinions elsewhere.

      Thanks for the support, Tom :) Unfortunately, my victory has spurred my office mates into action, so expect the lame-train to continue!

        Choo Chooo...

        ...Sorry i know i don't work with you, but i just wanted to make a train noise..

      A very dignified response there, Tom.

      i stilll think the guy who won the original PC copy didnt deserve it as there were 3-4 other jokes posted hours before that one with the same content

      he just fleshed it out a bit more but theres nothing to say that he may or may not have gotten the idea from another post

      (Be nice if you could hide all the replys then release them on the next days (winner/ new game annoncement)

        It was also my favourite entry from Monday.

          oh it was the most well written of the ones that touched the subject material(i made an inspired one based of someone elses idea(that i never expected to win as id already entered) But it would still be nice to make sure people arent stealing ideas :P

    There once was a predator named bob,
    whose job it was to catch cod,
    he went swimming in there,
    got snagged by his hair,
    now he's stuck in their lair.

    There once was a marine named JCVD
    From the predator role he did flee
    The suit was "too clumsy and too hot"
    so they gave away his spot
    Kevin Peter Hall may you R.I.P.

    There once was an Alien named Jon
    Who told me “you’re doing it wrong”
    I said “WTF?”
    He said “hold it young buck”
    Then his little mouth sang me a song

    There once was a predator named Will
    Who could not bring himself to kill
    So when hunting alone
    He'd rob graves for the bones
    But his pred-hood remained stuck at nil

    There once a predator with a Spear
    That helped him collect many Skulls
    And he always held it very near
    Only to lose it when killed
    By a man who was much too old

      Epic Fail.

        For some reason that entry just made me really laugh out loud.

    There once was an Alien called Buck
    who burst through a Marine and got stuck
    he looked up at the Marine
    as he let out a scream
    and tore out the rest of his gut

    There once was a marine called Kevin
    Whom looked very much like Michael Bevan
    He made a bat of of sticks
    With all his might hit a six
    And sent that evil predator to heaven

    There once was a colonial marine named The Mother,
    when an alien ran off with her lover:
    In charged the whole team,
    then ensues lots of screams,
    which won me a replica facehugger. :)

    A An alien once was named Nance,
    L Loved to do nothing but Dance.
    I It was her role in Spaceballs,
    E Ended her agent's calls,
    N Now she waits tables in France

      This looked better pre-auto-formatting.

    There once was a Predator called Trent
    Who gave up the fight for Lent
    Four days passed by
    It was worth a try
    Now it's time for him to vent

    Aliens are known,
    as Predators without souls
    Ultimate Hunters

    There once was an alien named Bill.
    No wait, it was a predator named Jill.
    Actually it might have been,
    A colonial marine called Irene.
    To be honest I'm not really sure whom I did kill.

      I am so thoroughly impressed by this entry... hope you win, because it's brilliant

      I second that.

    There once was a colonial marine name Hicks
    Who'd often talk trash to the chicks
    He remaked quite frankly
    Which caused Vasquez to stare blankly
    And retort "No. Have you?"

    There once was an alien queen
    who thrust her tail right through a man's spleen
    he wished he was dead
    he gave birth instead
    it was't a pretty scene

    There once was a Predator named Wayne,
    Our love was as powerful as a train,
    At last he went south;
    Mask off, open mouth,
    I knew then, I was in for some pain.

    There once was a marine from Kentucket,
    Who was stationed on a space bucket.
    After vanquishing the predators
    and getting reamed by the creditors
    he told them all to go suck it.

    There once was a predator named Trevor
    Who thought he was awfully clever
    He'd port from tv
    to that wonder pc
    then his ties with big Arnie he would sever

    There once was a calonial marine named Newt.
    All grown up now. Tough to boot.
    Family got F$%#ed
    Forced to hide in duct.
    Payback is ganna be a hoot.
