    I hope interest isn't drying up already :eek: Maybe everybody is busy with certain holiday plans, which is very understandable. Well, I hope we can get people entered for every game.

    If need be, we can postpone the closing a few days so everyone gets a nice chance to get involved. We shall see how the next 2 days go :toast:
    Enjoy the time off everyone! :rockout: :rockout: :rockout:

    Well, I hate to admit it, but I begrudgingly installed steam for the first time, to get a free copy of metro. Now I'm looking at it, lots of decent games for under 10 bucks. Saw that THQ pack for 25us, wouldn't mind getting that, but spent my month's budget already. Too bad they went under. I've only got metro 2033 so far, but my steam name is CamelJock1

    Well, I won a master system and a mega drive.... when I was a kid and a car when I was 18 and again now at 30's..... but nothing compares to when my father gave me and my brother a SNES.... he kept telling us on the car while we're heading to his house (yes, we lived with our mother), "hey... I just bought a new super computer, and I want you guys to see it! It's very cool, from last gen, came straight from Switzerland - to him all cool things comes from there - and when we got there and saw that box from the SNES, dual controller with Super Mario World.... man.... this must have been one of the best days in my life..... this by far was the gift I can remember to be most excited of.... a car... a trip... a computer are sure very cool gifts.... but hell I loved and played that SNES, and seeing your father excited about giving something he knows his children will love, is priceless.

    I'm in for Orcs Must Die 2

    In for stalker! One of my most memorable Christmases was when I was in a dark place (on drugs heavily) and my mother brought me food and cleaning supplies on Xmas day so I was taken care of. That inspired me to do better and later on I joined the military.

    I'm in for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

    The most memorable gift is of course our family first computer. My dad bought Intel 486DX PCs back in 1993 (complete with the TURBO button :D).

    I used to play Alley Cat, Paratrooper, Tetris, Dangerous Dave, etc. with those big floppy disk :D
    Basically my first gaming experience come from this PC and since then I got hooked up to PC and NEVER owned a single gaming console at all hehehe :D

    Thanks for the bump Gas.

    Lets allow all day for people to enter and have the drawing tonight :)
    If you haven't yet entered for a game, please do so now. There are some pretty good chances for winning so that bodes well for many.

    (I know I was planning on yesterday, but I was very tied up and completely unable to do this yesterday.)

    Til later tonight then..... :toast:

    Sorry that I'm so late to the party.

    To ring in the new year I'd love to have some fun with Orcs Must Die 2.

    I'm going to go with the gift of laughter. The story has to be told:
    Each year the family gets together in Florida. With the high humidity, everything has to be sealed to prevent spoilage, and because mom cooks like crazy, there's plenty to be sealed.

    We reused one of those large barrel type plastic jugs (screw on cap) to hold some Chex Mix. Well, somebody left the cap partially off, and a dog smelt it. The dog slinked off, while we were watching tv. Next thing we know, we hear plastic banging against the wall, and the sound of claws on the tile floor. The dog comes running around the corner, head inside the plastic jug. She beat her head against the wall, trying to remove the jug.

    I was paralyzed with laughter, my sister reached for the camera, and my dad tried to remove the jug from the dog. Nothing under the tree was quite as good as that moment. I'm still smiling ear to ear thinking about it.




    As usual, thank you to everyone (manofthem, Mindweaver, Maban, FordGT90Concept, silkstone and lyndonguitar) for having these drawings.

    I would like to enter for Prototype.

    My most memorable gift was when I received a chemistry set when I was a kid; I had a great time creating smoke bombs and gunpowder. Later, when I got to high school, I perfected a smoke bomb formula. Unfortunately, a drop of water landed in the batch setting it off and filling the two story building with smoke and making everyone evacuate. The origin of my avatar. :D

    This Christmas I proposed to my girlfriend - she said yes! So I guess you can say I got a fiance for Christmas :) Also, she bought me a Canon T4i with the 18-135mm EF-S IS STM lens kit and a Koolertron bag. So yeah, there's that too.

    I'd like to enter for the Witcher 2 :)

    Now I can play the original DoW again. Lost my DVD and the keys when I'm moving from my parents house.

    Thanks Matt. You're the best!

    Thanks ever so much Manofthem! My nephew will love this!

    Thanks for bending the rules a little and allowing me to enter for him!

    I'll be down my sisters later so when I'm there I'll send you a PM so I can activate on his Steam account.
