WIN! Bioshock 2 Game and Prize Pack (PS3)

Bioshock 2 is out today. We can only guess at how many people "aren't feeling well" today... All this week we have games and prize packs to giveaway. 2 x 360, 2 x PS3, 1 x PC. Playstation 3 owners, today it's your turn.

Bioshock 2 places you back in the undersea dystopia of Rapture, 10 years after the events of the original game. Only this time you're a Big Daddy. Actually, you're THE Big Daddy. The first. But there's a new regime in the house, and even tougher forces at play under the sea. Get ready to grab all the Adam you can.

Thanks to 2K Games we have five prize packs to give away, one each day this week. Each Bioshock 2 prize pack contains a copy of the game, a Bioshock 2 hoodie, a big Bioshock 2 artbook, a Little Sister figurine, a Bioshock 2 pen, a Bioshock 2 keyring, a plasmid badge, and a vinyl copy of the soundtrack. Total value runs to $274.65 per pack.

All you have to do is tell us in the comments what your version of Utopia would look like. What extreme regime would you introduce? Where would you build it? How quickly do you expect it will devolve into chaos? And today, after making it VERY hard for myself to judge yesterday, I want the answer in three versus... in your choice of limerick or haiku — the rise, the success, the fall. Most entertaining concept wins the pack.

You must also include a valid email address or use Facebook Connect so we can contact you if you win. Entries close midnight EDT and the winner will be announced tomorrow when the new draw opens.

Monday's Xbox 360 prize pack winner is Shane. So simple, yet terribly effective.

Good luck!

    My version of Utopia? That's easy. An entire city built entirely around Gaming. Has fastest internet in the world, free to all residents. Upon becoming a citizen, you may choose 5 free game consoles. If you wish to buy more, there only $1 each or answer a gaming question correctly. All this is made possible because of a collaboration of all the worlds gamers coming together and pouring all their money onto building this Utopia. There will be themed parts of the city for some popular games. Such as a Rapture aquarium and a Final Fantasy Museum.

    This is my Utopia.

    Spoil my utopia?
    The diving bell will show you
    whos your daddy.

    In utopia
    All would think my jokes funny
    Merriment galore

    At the pinnacle
    I sit on my throne of joy
    As laughter gets forced

    And then it will end
    One too many "no pants" joke
    Death by rubber chook

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the gamers
    Living for today...

    Imagine there's no fanboys
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no flame wars too
    Imagine all the gamers
    Living life in peace...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no RROD
    I wonder if you can
    No need for spawn camping or leet speak
    A brotherhood of man (and women)
    Imagine all the gamers
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

      Whoops... didn't fully read the T&C's on this one.

    Grats to Shane, I'm saving my entry for the PC copy =) Fingers crossed!

    rules of my utopia

    people can move freely from nation to nation, politics has been removed by the introduction of a giant red button in the middle of every lounge in every house in the world, and for those away from home there are 'red rooms' that you have to go to at 7pm every evening.

    multi choice questions are randomly set so that decisions are made, laws are legalised and rules are governed. All continues as intended by the great mind (some big computer in a mountain, think superman 3)

    Until one day when the randomised questionator asks 'do you believe in choice?' everyone answers yes, and the big computer knows that they have no choice and by answering yes they are lying and not answering correctly (as the computer has the answers it wants before asking them, you see).

    The computer is not happy with this answer and sets off the self destruct by pressing it's own REALLY BIG red button, this detonates the secret mountain hide out which destroys all other red buttons and the global consciousness is dead, greed and poiltics return,utopia is dead, long live utopia.

    Land for Bourgeoisie?
    Money lines pockets of few
    Citizens riot

    There once was a place called Utopia.
    That promised to cure people's myopia.
    The inhabitants cried "My eyes my eyes!"
    This was the promise of Utopia.

    The inhabitants wanted more.
    And as their eyes cleared
    The Big Daddy's reared!
    The inhabitants went insane for war.

    The drills went raaAAAOOWW!!
    The eyes glowed bright
    and the plasmids fired light.
    .....this was the downfall of Utopia.

    There exists a place beyond the black stump
    The leadership of Rudd, Conroy and Atkinson the chump.

    The censorship of freewill and communication will ensure
    The citizens to live peacefully and a life so pure

    Into the dark ages this utopia will fall
    “You don’t need R18+ games at all”
    “The internet shall be filtered and speed halved for all”

    But I still call this black stump home.

    I’d have to go with a floating city in the clouds, that runs entirely on renewable energy and collects water from the clouds it passes through, everything is made out of carbon fibre (so it’s ultra light & ultra strong) as for an extreme regime… I have no idea but there would be an R18+ rating for games

    Congratulations Shane. As soon as I read yours I thought you were the deserved winner.

    There rise of my a utopian vision
    Requires the networks to give in
    No reality TV
    Would just be peachy for me
    Now if I only had the money for acquisition

    The success of my utopian vision
    Requires the peoples' admiration
    For if they did not
    There would be a riot
    And there would be devastation

    The Fall of my utopian vision
    Arose out of litigation
    For lawyers did not see
    That a world without reality TV
    Was mankind's great salvation

    Are multiple entries ok?
    When you say 3 verses - do you mean 3 lymerics/haikus together to make one story?

    Sorry for the double-post
    just to clarify further, in lymeric form it would go
    a,a,b,b,a - a,a,b,b,a - a,a,b,b,a.

      Sorry, yes, you are correct. A,A,B,B,A. Thrice.

    A place was made where
    Science was to become the
    Way to improve man

    A way to make brains
    Immortal was made ideal
    Cyborgs we became

    Our utopia falls
    We feel soulless and scared so
    Kill ourselves we must

    There once was an Utopian land,
    Promising blue seas and white sand.
    Come stay forever!
    Not wanting ever
    To leave this wonderful dreamland.

    People came from far and wide,
    For when they arrived they'd decide;
    From the old life do I resign?
    Sign on the dotted line
    Here, smell this rag soaked in chloride.

    An Utopia it turned out not to be,
    For everything had a huge fee.
    I'm going home
    Hand me the phone
    I'll get my money back, they'll see!

    Hidden away south
    A small slice of paradise
    We lived our life free

    The golden sands touch
    The golden drink in my hand
    And golden rays above

    But mandatory
    Internet filtering came
    And ruined it all

      LOL. Thats both real life and the same country I live in. Boo Conroy and Atkinson.

    This is a continuation of my entry from yesterday (I wish I knew how to link to it):

    My pillow fort fell
    But the dream has never died
    Utopia lives!

    New fort, more pillows
    Stockpile of pizza and beer
    But sanctions return

    They are not needed
    Fort has fatal design flaw
    I can't see TV

    Garrick had a dream of a land
    Where all would happy and grand
    He made this come true
    With only virtue
    He vowed it would never be bland

    His utopia became a success
    Filled with sunshine and gloriousness
    Twas the envy of all
    So say they all
    Until one day there was darkness

    There was nothing but screaming and yelling
    Untill Garricks voice came booming
    Everyone needs fight
    As there will be no light
    Until only the victor is standing

    They asked me to describe my Utopia,
    Monday's competition was however an Xbox cornucopia.
    Today I thought would be my day,
    As I dreamed of my Utopia and what I might say.
    I hope Shane's time in Rapture does not lead to myopia.

    John Lennon's 'Imagine' came to mind.
    Swap a few lyrics, a winner designed!
    A few gamers traits,
    Some of my own pet hates.
    Surely Seamus would not be unkind.

    With the comments moderated,
    A fool of myself I created.
    I rushed through the terms and conditions,
    I had failed due to my predispositions.
    My entry was totally unrelated.

    The rise/success/fall of a one-man utopia:

    Such pretty colours
    Through polarised glass - nuke-lit dawn
    Burns away humans

    Crackling gramophone
    Echoes through still stone hallways
    Privacy at last!

    Dust and howling winds
    Shambling mutants scour the streets
    Safer underground?


    And to salve possible suspicions of misanthropy, here's a one-off look at a happy society:

    Claw through the hatches
    Squirm through ducts, pick off stragglers
    The Queen is hungry...

    There once was a dystopian society,
    ruled with ban-hammer and sobriety,
    it began with a man,
    who probably like WHAM,
    an Attorney General causing gamer anxiety.

    With a crazy, paranoid rant,
    he claimed Fornarino a liberal plant,
    the people revolt,
    and I win by default,
    and now we all play games by surgical implant.

    Now 4 years on, as Attorney General I game,
    no time for legal affairs during my reign,
    the people grow tired
    and I'll probably get fired
    but by then i'd have escaped to Spain.

      Dang! I meant to write
      who probably 'likes' WHAM

    Hidden away south
    A small slice of paradise
    We lived our life free

    The golden sands touch
    The golden drink in my hand
    And golden rays above

    But mandatory
    Internet filtering came
    And ruined it all

      Copy of mine??

        Angie's Utopia clearly includes an infinite public domain ;)
