WIN! Aliens Vs Predator Hunter Edition On PS3

Our week-long Aliens Vs Predator giveaway continues today with a PlayStation 3 Hunter Edition up for grabs. And we find out who won yesterday's PC draw.

UPDATE: Tuesday's draw is now closed. Check back in Wednesday morning for another chance to win and find out who scored Tuesday's prize.

Thanks to Sega we have SIX copies of Aliens Vs Predator, the new first-person shooter from Rebellion launching this Thursday, 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 PS3 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 Monday's PC draw is Blashca for this topical and clever spin on the joke:

So, an alien, the predator and a colonial marine walk into a bar…

The joke contains first-person perspective, close-up depictions of human characters being subjected to various types of violence, including explicit decapitation and dismemberment as well as locational damage such as stabbing through the chest, mouth, throat, or eyes. The joke exceeds the requirements for a MA15+ rating. No censored or cut version of the joke is planned.

[Terms and Conditions]


    There was a Colonial Marine, HICKS, Dwayne.
    With Ripley on the Sulaco was near-slain.
    Jim Cameron also had him in Terminator,
    But not in his Avatar flick, later.
    Oh wait, Im thinking of the actor Michael Biehn...

    There once was a Marine named Atkinson,
    Who thought this great series I shouldn't have again,
    Now at nearly thirty, I feel I shall game as I please,
    Let's hope this tragedy doesn't happen again...


      I think you need to re-write this and follow how the limerick should be written, not some random sentences that dont even rhyme

    There once was a colonial marine named Bill,
    Who sometimes acted a bit of a dill,
    But in the last firefight, He showed he had might
    Though it did him no good, yes Bill didn't end up alright.
    Yeah, after that he made Twister.

    There once was a predator named hount
    with more trophies than you could count
    he replicates voices he hears
    but where the f*%! are his ears
    cooler, he rides the alien queen as his mount

    There once was a predator named Charlie,
    who had a man crash on Arnie.
    He killed all his mates,
    in order to get dates.
    If only he was invited to the choppa.

    An Alien, a Predator and a Marine finally became sick of fighting with advanced weaponry so the Alien came up with an idea inspired by his favourite video game of all time - The 'Threepwood' rhyme battle. They all agreed this was the best plan of action to take.

    They entered the theatre arena, leaving their weapons at the door - let the battle begin!

    First up was the predator, whose dialect and poem was by far the worst...

    Af kon tant tatxe galketgan!
    Zi tik korud larginzo ban!
    Hus rez ud zeawoo!
    Joi tzujaingasoo!
    Ezrit lur tziku tsu gertan!

    Predator goes invisible out of shame.

    “Nicely done predo”

    The Marine thought he definitely had one up on this...

    There once was a colonial marine named... bush
    who fired a mini-gun off into the... bush
    about his reason, when asked
    he said, a predator just passed,
    An Alien in the hand is worth two in the... bush?

    Many Alien *face palms*follow, because he had a doozy up his slimy sleave.

    There oncce was an Alien named Giger (that’s me)
    Whose armss were like that of tiger (but obviously better)
    When he was politely assked at the door, (where we got our name tags)
    To remove hiss weaponss and more, (...)
    He forgot about the 2 face higers.

    “higers?” said the marine “Now what in the fu...,,,cvmmm mmmm mmdmd ahmmmgghhhghhhhhhh..............”

    There once was a marine called Hicks,
    He was brave, and took a few licks.
    Dragged across the base,
    Acid blood on his face,
    Just do die in the sequel? You pricks!

    There once was a Predator named Ryan,
    Who spent most of his time crying,
    The tears would not end,
    For he had but one friend,
    That is, till he ripped out their spine.

    There once was a Predator named Pew-Pew
    Who was asked to write a limerick on cue
    No fleshed out ideas
    So he drank many beers
    Foiled by Wildgoose again, FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

    There once was a marine named Hicks
    Who slept all the way to '426.
    By default he gained authority
    And he survived amongst a minority.
    But he still ended up nothing but bits.

      Just cleaning up some of the grammar...

      There once was a marine named Hicks
      Who slept all the way to ‘426.
      By fate he gained authority
      Surviving amongst a minority.
      But still ended up nothing but bits.

    There once was an Alien named Snappy,
    Who never knew his Mammy or Pappy,
    He got locked in a lab,
    With some marines and a crab,
    And they all played some Dance Dance revolution. could add ',happy?' after dance dance revolution if it REALLY has to rhyme.

    There once was a marine named Gavin,
    Who awoke to troubles you couldn't imagine,
    Dark long hallways,
    Not to mention the acid sprays,
    F*ck it he should have slept in.

    There once was a marine named Bob, who liked to make alien shish ka bob,
    He traveled by ship with a pistol on his hip looking forward to split and make hummus in a aliens stomich,
    They arrived at the place, a deserted military base, hunger tied to his face, as his heart started to race realizing it was now or never there was no escape
    Traveling down a hall, Bob took a big fall, and broke his jaw
    Crying in pain, now life wouldn't be the same as he felt more pain . . .
    What was this? An alien burst out of his stomach . . Damn so much for the hummus

    There once was a Predator named Taylan
    Who's dreadlocks were bested by no one
    'Till a Marine did dare
    To cut off his hair
    That Marine's now in many a portion!

    There once was a colonial marine...
    Poor bloke feared what the camera left unseen.
    A valiant stereotype,
    He ducked and he dodged,
    Sadly just prior to his head being dislodged.

      "“There once was an alien/a predator/a colonial marine named…” (Just choose one!)""

      As they had parents who did not care enough to give them A-typical names ( Who names there kid "Just choose one!" they became angry with the world around them and eventually this spurred on a war between all three races...

      Interesting notes: The marines parents we actually tossing up between naming their kid either "PEPSI" or "COKE" but COKE wouldn't pay up unless they named him "COKE ZERO". They eventually decided on "Just choose one!" as a result of their indecision.

      This alien was persecuted for his non standard xeno name as all previous aliens had traditional xeno names and all after ware simply named 0001, 0002 etc. The Queen obviously became fed up with thinking of new names over the years.

      The origins of the Preds name are unknown at this time. If you see him down the pub, please ask him.

    A lot of these sumbissions are MEGAFAIL

    Do you people even read how to enter the competition before you submit your entry?

    David - why do you publish entries that dont meet your requirements?

      Dans, your limerick only has three lines and none of them rhyme. And you've ignored the required opening line. Sheesh!

        There once was a competition on Kotaku,
        The prize was somewhat an otaku,
        Dansdans would complain,
        Wildgoose put him to shame,
        In his head, Dan would reply; fuck you.

          LOL That's EXACTLY what I was thinking!

          Ryan FTW in my opinion :)

            I wanted to give thanks for your comment,
            But a lack of witty lines I would lament,
            But to make my thanks rhyme,
            With rhythm and time,
            Now that's a thanks with which I'm content.

            (I'm really in a limerick writing mood,
            As I'm sure you may have assumed,
            But my rhymes are getting sloppy,
            And my rhythm, choppy,
            But Dans, I wrote two just for you)

              We SO need to have a "Comments Must Be Submitted In Limerick Form Or They Won't Be Published" day on Kotaku.

                This is genius.

                  Oh can we Mr Wildgoose, please?
                  It would rid us of smut and sleaze,
                  For only the intelligent can write,
                  Limericks like you and I might,
                  I don't want to get on my knees..

                  I think I'm done now.

              Thats three in total now Ryan

              If i didnt know any better, I'd say you are trying to seduce me...

                Dansdans, surely you must have knew this,
                As I go about my limerick writing business,
                I'm not trying to seduce you,
                Though it's a side effect I'm used to,
                It comes with being such a cunning linguist.

              I must confess, it is my intention,
              To win Rebellion's invention,
              But if I don't win,
              I ask, with a grin,
              For at least an honourable mention.

              For I've written stunning limericks with pleasure,
              For you to enjoy at your leisure,
              So Dansdans, Wildgoose,
              What I now ask of you,
              Is to return me one for good measure.

          There once was a a colonial marine named Ripley
          She was as hot as a scientist could be
          Everything worked out okay
          She and her cat got away
          To rescue Newt in the next movie

            David, if Ryan does not win this will be a crime against humanity.

              Unfortunately DansDans, my actual entry up above isn't nearly as strong as the limericks I wrote on your comment, so if I don't win I totally understand.

      Just another little annoying thing as well is those people that submit their answer by replying to someone, most likely to have their answer on the first page.

      It's happened on pretty much all comps in the past. it's just rude that you would tack on your own submission, so it's "abit" more visible. People, David does read beyond the first 25 comments... it doesn't matter if you are on page 1 or page 12...

      Note - this isn't against Ryan and the 3 limericks attached to these comment strings, as I'm aware his real submission is further up.

    There once was an alien named XXX Dug
    A masseur who did more than face hug
    Down your throat was all he could muster
    Forming a majestic chest buster
    Attempt not, the "ACIDIC RUB 'n' TUG" !!

    There once was a boy name medekai,
    who didn't rate Alien vs Predator very high.
    He spat his dummy,
    about the game being crummy,
    he will never get a piece of this pie.

      Well this one doesn't really work now that Medekai's post has been deleted :(

        There once was a alien named pleasure
        who seen it all and measured
        till she found the perfect one
        whose dick was as long, and now, gone....
        by the loving hunger of pleasure.

    There was a Predator named Gecko,
    Who went on a big hunting trekko,
    His girlfriend took offence,
    To his double compliments,
    Turns out it was ‘cause of the echo.

    There once was an alien named Abbie
    Who apparently didn't get mad, but got stabby,
    She had a sex-change operation,
    Which gave her a male transformation,
    But strangely still got, once a month, oh-so crabby.

    There was a marine named Brock,
    Who wished that the war would stop,
    For every new fight,
    That occured every night,
    Just seemed like paper scissors rock.

    There once was an Alien called Hex,
    God damn she looks fine in Spandex,
    Made Good Game complete,
    With a package so sweet,
    Shes the Marilyn Monroe for us Techs.

    There once was a colonial marine named Stephen,
    Who moral path he sought us to believe in,
    Supported a by few,
    In ended in a coup,
    For the entire battalion was stheethin'.

      *woops typo
      that should be "seethin'"

    There once was a colonial marine.
    Who smelt remarkably like a latrine.
    His company was not thrilled.
    Yet only he was not killed.
    For no alien nor predator could stand his hygiene.
