Kotaku’s Community Service Award Goes To...

Let's announce the latest Community Service Award winner, given to the Kotaku reader who contributed the most thoughtful, articulate, helpful and worthwhile comments over the past seven days.

It works like this: each week I publish a list of ten items – grouped in five pairs – taken from the 2010 Big Pile Of Crap. And each week I announce the weekly prize winner. That winner will then be able to choose five items – one from each pair – from the pile to be delivered to their door.

Note: Previously I used to reveal the prizes first and then the winner in separate post. Now the prizes will be a surprise and everything will be revealed in the one post. Make sense?

This week's winner is... long overdue, to be honest. It goes to Steven Bogos!

So, well done, Steven. You get to choose one item from each of these pairs:

1. Xbox 360 Drop 'N' Charge Kit ... or In-car iPhone Holder 2. Red Dead Redemption playing cards ... or Bayonetta playing cards 3. Skate 3 Xbox 360 game ... or Warhammer Online PC game 4. ModNation Racers Media Kit and PS3 game ... or Street Fighter IV Xbox 360 game and figurines 5. BioShock 2 stickers ... or Mafia II Zippo lighter

Plus, I'll throw in a PlayStation beach towel. For free! (What do you mean it's all free?)

Steven, take a look at the photo below and then let us know your choices in the comments below. Everyone else, keep commenting and you might take out the award next week!


    hahah no flippin way!! thats so awesome!!

    We all do love a random surprise, and Steven is as fit a winner as anyone else!!

    Awesome work Steven, enjoy your prizes! :D

    There is certainly some gold to be had there!

    Nice little prizes. :3

    The No More Heroes 2 t-shirt is gone? Sadface.

    From what's there i'll take:
    1. iPhone holder - Don't have an iPhone myself, but i've got a 360 charger already and this will make a nice gift for Mum

    2. RDR Playing Cards - I enjoyed RDR much more than Bayonetta!

    3. Skate 3 Xbox 360 game - World of Warcraft is the only MMO for me!

    4. Modnation Racers - I already have the CE of SFIV, don't have a PS3 but can give this to a mate.

    5. Mafia II zippo. This one shouldn't have to warrant an explanation :P

      Can I be your mate? 8^)

      Very nice choices indeed! Made all the same in my hypothetical head :)

    I think you should change the name from a Big Pile O' Crap to Pile of Orphaned Goods. To everyone else it's anything but! :D

    I hope this Award keeps going on after you leave Dave.

    Well done Bogos!!! Lots of nice goodies to choose from!! Tis good to have regulars like yourself around these parts! Makes it feel more like a big family! ;)

    Also, congrats Steven!

    Couldn't have gone to a more deserving winner.

    Congrats Steven!

    Thanks for all the accolades guys! Good luck for next time

    Congrats Steven! Brilliant prizes for a brilliant commentator ;)

    David where's the ps3 dj hero. Did I miss something or did this go?

      It's still around. I just wanted to mix things up a little bit. (Mix? Geddit?)


        now since i laughed at your "awesome" joke, can you give me the goodies next time?


        I think that if it ever does go, there should be cake. There should always be cake.

        I actually find myself strangely attached to that device now, like it is part of the family. I want it to stick around for ages. Good on you for giving it a rest. It could not take much more of an ego bashing around here, being rejected all the time.

    Nice work Sir Bogos! You always seem to have posts showing signs of intelligence, something I dearly lack! Big congrats. Oh, and you'll take a shit in your trousers upon seeing how freaking huge the beach towel is. I thought it was a blanket!

    Congratulations man! As soon as I saw the new Community Award Post, my first guess was you!

    Awesome swag there, Congrats on the win Steven.

    I would kill for that Mafia II Zippo, Modnation Press Kit and both sets of playing cards, so you better watch out! :p
