Win A Trip To Sweden To Play Battlefield 3

By Alec Meer on August 1st, 2011.

This is what you'll like look on the gun-range. Almost certainly.

Greetings, humans. We have a new competition for you, and it’s a little different from the norm. In fact, it’s far better than the norm. (Well, unless you’re afraid of flying. Then it might be worse, I guess).

The prize, for two lucky readers from the UK, is three days and two nights in Stockholm, Sweden, during which you’ll get hands-on time with early code for Battlefield 3, meet and interview developers EA DICE, stay in a five-star hotel and also visit a local range to fire some real guns as well as BF3′s virtual ones. You can still shout ‘dakkadakkadakkadakka’ as you do so if you wish, but honestly, it won’t be necessary. Real bullets, see.

Arma II: OA Event Tomorrow. Or Not.

By Jim Rossignol on August 28th, 2010.

Men and their guns, together at last.
UPDATE TWO: Oh dear. Problems with the server for this means we’re going to have to postpone. Again. I know, apologies! I’m going to have to get RPS its own games box for these kinds of eventualities! Sorry about this. We will get our Arma 2 game soon. More details later.

UPDATE: Apologies for lack of information! I’m having some last minute problems with the server for this. If you have a private OA server, now would be a good time to speak up. More information soon!

Just a quick reminder for folks who won copies of A2OA in our recent competition that we have having a little multiplayer event tomorrow from 2pm BST. I will be editing the server details into this post a bit closer to that time, so come here for organisational whatnots.

Also! If you are an A2OA owner and want to come along, there will likely be additional spaces to play with us later on, and we’ll probably open it up on the Steam Group once the winning posse are all connected. Needless to say, everyone should get the latest patch, and places for non-winners can’t be guaranteed.

Starcraftsmanship: Competition!

By Quintin Smith on August 6th, 2010.

Who wants a bona fide crate of StarCraft merchandise? We got in a bit of a fight over here about who could keep it and once the other four decided it should at least go to one of the Hivemind I decided that it would be best to give it away to you, our honest readers. Or at least our honest readers here in the UK. Sorry, rest-of-the-planet.

Details of the haul (not all of which is pictured here) and competition after the jump. Come, come!

WIN: Lord Of The Rings Online

By Jim Rossignol on November 27th, 2009.


It’s competition time again! In celebration of the release of the Mirkwood expansion Codemasters have given us three triple-pack key sets for Lord Of The Rings Online, so that includes Shadows of Angmar, Mines of Moria and Siege of Mirkwood, and we’re giving them away to you. Head south of the click for details. (This is a UK-only competition, I’m afraid, but stay tuned, because the RPS Hivemind will itself be brave the deep dark of Mirkwood in December.)

OGPlanet: Free Virtual Money

By Jim Rossignol on November 26th, 2009.


Online gaming portal OGPlanet.eu have sent us a couple of hundred virtual currency codes, worth €3 each. Games on the portal (which include multiplayer fighting games, and the obligatory fantasy MMORPG) are free-to-play, but have micro-transaction stuff supporting them via a virtual currency across the portal. If you want to try it out send us an email via this link, and don’t change that subject line, or our indentured email-slave will get confused and retreat to his nest. First come first served, until the codes are gone. The codes can be redeemed under the “Coupon Number” option in your profile. Beware that these codes only work on the EU portal, not the North American one.

Win! Tomb Raider Underworld, Signed By A Girl

By Alec Meer on January 13th, 2009.

Yes – you could be the proud owner of a videogame written upon by a real human female. Specifically, by Keeley Hawes – the agreeably posh voice of Lara Croft, face of ‘er out of Ashes to Ashes and of course, most famously of all, silent subject of the video for geriatric pop gibberish-spouters James’ She’s A Star. SHE IS A PRETTY LADY. She is also able to write her own name – three times, in fact, for that’s how many signed copies of Tomb Raider Underworld we have to give away. And it’s the game we’re really interested in, of course.

WIN: Awesome Strategy Games And Stuff!

By Jim Rossignol on November 27th, 2008.


Not all our competitions are for UK readers, honest. But this one is: it’s timed to coincide with the UK release of two strategy game bundles, the majestic Imperium Romanum Gold and the trans-solar excellence of Galactic Civilizations Ultimate Edition. You can win both! For details on what other goodies you can win, as well as how to enter, head linkwards.

Win! Lich King Strategy Guide & Collector’s Wotsit!

By Alec Meer on November 12th, 2008.

The games, they will not end. Just as we thought we’d finally reached the end of Big Release Silly Season, tomorrow brings the second World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. One or two people are probably slightly excited.

To celebrate (I love saying that, as it’s a completely inaccurate way of describing a competition, conjuring images of us all sat around wearing Warcraft party hats and waving ARTHAS ’08 flags. But still, it’s the done thing for compos), we’ve arranged to give away Bradygame’s official Wrath of the Lich King strategy guide and a special edition boxed copy of WOTLK itself to one lovely reader.

I’ve been thumbing through the strategy guide today, and my Lord but it’s got a lot of useful stuff in its 352 pages. Maps’n'stats’n'quest guides, and of course a vast amount of finely-detailed loot locators. So I’m expecting to not need to refer to Thottbot when I venture back onto the WoW servers for the first time in a year tomorrow. Also, pictures. Pretty, pretty pictures. Entry details below the cut.
