There are few games as brutally demanding as From Software's Demon's Souls, the PlayStation 3 exclusive RPG out this week. Which is why you'll really earn it if you manage to win a copy.
UPDATE: This draw is now closed. A new draw opens Friday 11am.
Thanks to Namco Bandai, we have FIVE copies of Demon's Souls on PS3 to give away this week. All five are Black Phantom Editions, too, containing the game, the CD soundtrack, a hardcover artbook and a strategy guide. We're giving away one each day this week.
So how do you win?
Demon's Souls takes an unusual approach to online play. You can use stones to jump into the games of other players to both help them and harass them. Players can also leave messages - advice, warnings, poetry and gibberish - etched into the game world for others to read.
We want you to write a message for your fellow competition entrants to read. Leave your message in the comments below by midnight tonight to be in the running to win. The wittiest and most creative messages will win.
As usual, no multiple entries please. But if you don't win today, you can always enter tomorrow's draw with a brand new message.
And Wednesday's winner is... Grim, who message read:
"Wanted: two assistants to travel to a land clouded with fog and populated with undead and demons. This is not a joke!
The successful applicants will be: well armed, familiar with magicks, blue, able to work well in a team environment, deceased, supply their own green herbs and run slower from demons than myself."
One very highly commended - ie. you so nearly won - goes to Thomas Lee for: "Hard to remove bloodstains? Try Demon Soul-vent."
And shouts out to Jeremy Hore, SirJD, Topher, welbot, Thomas Fulton, Tomasz, Aussie_Foot, Andrew Burdusel and Bukake Kane (for sheer persistence).
