    In the spirit of TPU being the first forum website I have come across where I can feel the strong community and dedication of the administrators I have decided to give away my extra copy of Dirt Showdown. Thank my monitor power adapter dying on me today and bumming me out. Hoping this giveaway will cheer me up. :ohwell:

    To enter: Post what about this game appeals to you. The winner is chosen randomly via TPU's very own FordGT90Concept's Random Line Pick utility!

    Requirements: TPU join date of May 2012 or earlier, post count of 50, and must not own the game, which will be sent directly via Steam. I have a Giveaway currently open for Deus Ex Human Revolution, which can be found here: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2695543#post2695543. If you win Deus Ex, I will take you out of the running for this which won't be done for two days after DXHR ends.

    Important: After the winner is announced and PM'd, they have 48hrs to get in contact with me. If I do not receive a PM in return or contact of any kind within the 48hrs, I will do a redrawing and a new winner will be selected.

    Close Date: Saturday the 18th, 5:00 pm EST

    I just loved DiRT 2 and I don't have enough money to get the 3rd or this one and I would love to play a new racing game. Thanks for the chance to win!

    First, I am not entering.

    I just wanted to say thanks for hosting yet another great TPU give away!!!

    Showdown is a pretty damn fun game! The figure 8's are a hoot, and the demo derbies are cool as hell!

    Good luck to all that enter.

    Yeah, I almost kept the game for myself. But I have like 5 games pre-ordered, and 200+ on backlog still to play, 10 of which are racers that I am interested in. So I figured, what the hell. Smash ye frosty mugs of ale! :toast:

    I don't care how cheap McDonalds gets, it still doesn't taste better.... Oh wait, you said food! MdDs doesn't count... :p

    On a real note, how does this game compare to Dirt 3? I absolutely suck at racing games, always have

    Is it really even a game worth buying in the first place? I'm not sure going through the hassle of entering a contest to WIN it is even justifiable.

    Yes, contests are such a hassle for those that WANT to enter. If you dont wish to spend the time to write out why you would like the game, then dont

    Oh we're making it dirty!

    That is, to our vehicles of course because we would be racing which naturally causes the cars to get dirty. But you knew that. ^^

    So vroom vroom count me in!!

    And if you wish to go around preaching how people should chat, bone up on the forum rules, and apply as a mod. Otherwise you'll just have to be OK with the fact that it's an open forum and opinions, whether you like them or not, will be mentioned on a daily basis. It was really more of a tongue in cheek mention of the game anyway, not the whole giveaway thing.

    That said, I know of no gaming forums that are so cluttered on a daily basis with giveaway threads in the Games forum. They really should have their own separate Giveaways forum here. Bjorn3D is one example of a forum that clung far too much to giveaways to get hits, and now look at their activity level. That forum is so stagnant now.

    Again, another useless post, thanks for adding nothing constructive.

    These giveaways are not affiliated with TPU in any way, are not a trick to lure people to TPU, and are only available to those who have been a member of the community for a while AND contribute to its success.

    If you do have an issue with the giveaways that go on here by members who happen to care about their community, contact one or more of the moderators and bring your concerns to their attention. If the mods agree or think that they are not a good idea, then they will address it and the members will comply.

    You don't want to enter, great. You're afraid that a few game giveaways will bleed TPU dry of users, stupid (TPU is a lot bigger than that). Feel free to leave Alien, Phusius, and others alone. I'm only sorry I had to waste a post in another user's giveaway. Sorry Phusius :toast:
