RPS Xmas Compo: Win a Sapphire Radeon 290

By Jeremy Laird on December 26th, 2013.

What do points mean?

UPDATE:
We have a winner and a back-up (incidentally, the only two correct answers), both of whom have been informed by email. If you don’t have an email, I’m afraid you’re out of luck.

The answer is Intel’s aborted Larrabee graphics project. It was based on ancient Pentium MMX cores, the first ASIC was cancelled as a graphics chip and reappeared as a co-processor branded Xeon Phi under the codename Knight’s Corner. Would sir care for a vertex – geddit? Sigh.

Thanks to everyone who mailed in.

Right, then. This is your chance to win that slick, trick Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Tri-X. It’s been winning hearts and minds across the review community in recent days and the early numbers look like it delivers a gaming experience to match anything. And I mean anything. I doubt you’ll be able to feel the difference between Sapphire’s custom-cooled 290 and even Nvidia’s silly-money GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Fingers on buzzers, then. Read the rest of this entry »

Random-O-Compo: Be An NPC In Krater

By Alec Meer on May 11th, 2012.

Rather appealing-looking post-apocalyptic action-yet-tactical RPG Krater launches next month, and while it’s in its final mile (I’ve got some beta code here I really need to take a look at) there is yet time for IMPORTANT CHANGES. Important changes such as one Rock, Paper, Shotgun reader getting an in-game character named after them (or a name of their choice, Naughty Swears aside) and also having their name in the credits to boot.

Win! An Alienware M11x Laptop & Total War Games

By RPS on March 24th, 2012.

It’s a weekend, it’s sunny, and that means you should stay indoors playing videogames. Or reading about videogames. Either really, just stay indoors no matter what. Another way you could do that is by entering our competition to win an Alienware M11X R3 gaming laptop, courtesy of the men of war at The Creative Assembly. They’ve just this week released expandalone Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai, which moves the setting 400 years on from the original game and brings semi-modern weaponry as well as America, Britain and France into the fray, and they’d jolly well like to celebrate it by giving one RPS reader one of these 11″ ultraportable gaming notebooks. It comes equipped with an Intel Core i5 brain, 4GB of remembering power and GeForce GT 540M graphicsability. Four runners-up can have a Steam key for a Total War game of their choice.

WIN: Limbo

By Jim Rossignol on August 4th, 2011.

Big spider or small boy?

COMPETITION CLOSED, PRIZES SENT.

John thought Limbo was great, even if the PC-porting was a bit shonky. So perhaps you might be interested in winning a copy? I thought so. We’ve got twenty Steam codes to give away. Email us here with the answer to this question: “If you were stuck in limbo – the metaphysical/theological state, rather than the platform game – which PC gaming character would you want to be stuck there with?”

The most metaphysical answers, as judged by us, will win Steam codes. Usual rules apply. Closing date is midday, 10th August.

That’s right: NCSoft have give us the premium wedding DLC, worth £5.99, and we can give it away to thirty lucky, lucky readers. Lucky European readers, anyway, as it’s limited to Europe.
