    *Picture credits go out to whomever I bummed it from.*


    When does the next one arrive? Anyone's guess. How many are there? I can only say there's more than two. Stay tuned.




    Excellent questions.
    1) If you'd like to cancel submissions you're welcome to. Shoot me a PM on Saturday before the end of the contest, or simply decline a prize if you're contacted as a winner.

    2) You can enter once, and you're in for all the games listed. Winners will be drawn in an order, and it's first come first serve on claiming the prizes. There may be an exception to this along the line, so please do continue to pay attention!

    Oh yea, count me in for that Deus Ex. I've entered every single Deus Ex giveaway so far, and will continue to do so until I win!!!! :laugh:

    Reason why I keep coming back to this place:
    - So I can bash fanboys
    - So I can troll once in a while without getting banned right away
    - So I can help someone by answering their noob question and in turn makes me feel like an expert
    - So I can get a laugh every now and again

    Other reasons why I keep coming back are more obvious, like the atmosphere, friendliness of the people, etc. :toast:

    What keeps me coming back to TPU? The awsome posters here ofc and no trolls. With any kind of technical questions you normally get a response within 5 mins, there seems to always be knowledgeable people online

    I come here because the people are awesome and helpful.

    I come to TechPowerUp because it is my portal to General Nonsense. I'm full of general nonsense (I signed up because of the 2008 election debate that was going on that time--check the Join Date). :)


    Additionally...
    -I uploaded most of my applications here.
    -Minecraft Server
    -Terraria Server
    -The odd occassion I can't figure out a tech problem.
    -Tech News
    -World Community Grid/BOINC
    -Games thread

    Another late night.

    We've got another shooter. This one slipped way under most people's radar (what a shame, but GFWL has the tendency to do that), but here's your chance to pick it up:
    Section 8: Prejudice
    [​IMG]
    *Credit to whomever I've linked this picture from*​




    Next one, or couple, are from AlienIsGOD (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/member.php?u=57450). The hint for this one (sorry, I forgot about it last time), "This game was achieved with CryEngine 3."

    You know, since I've been here, i haven't seen too many people get banned, except for the other day when erocker swung the ban hammer on somebody who asked to be banned :laugh:

    Perhaps much of the banning is behind the scenes :wtf:

    I keeps coming back to TPU for few reasons:-
    1. Lots of giveaway especially on game thread. Check everyday.
    2. To show off everything I got in the relevant thread such as "your PC ATM" etc.
    3. Your one stop PC solution for a PC noob like me:)

    Oh, I see..... You're like a top secret agency, like the Men In Black, who can erase memories and histories... I love it!!! :D

    A little earlier than usual today. This one is 100% thanks to AlienIsGOD.

    Not one, but two copies of Nexuiz:

    Can you dig it? AlienIsGOD and manofthem both deserve a huge thanks for getting involved in the spirit. Shoot them a thanks if you get a chance, or make some time to let them know you appreciate their generosity!




    Next up, they've got medications for when your pets get them. Unfortunately, or perhaps very fortunately, these little guys will fight back. They've been gone a while, but now they're reloaded.


    Edit:
    My bad, AlienIsGOD told me about the DLC, but I forgot.

    Thanks for the shout-out, good sir. Always a pleasure to help out when and where I can :roll:

    Quite a few games going on here, quite a few people are going to be quite happy :), that's very cool!

    I come here because Themailman isn't banned yet, im not banned yet and of course all the awesome reviews. W1zz is definitely #1 when it comes to GPU reviews, and Cadevaca's motherboard reviews as well only guy i know who tests overclocking with the Shogun 2 CPU bench on a regular basis which is something i love to see. Overall I keep coming back to TPU because its TPU, there is no other site like it on the internet.

    Ewww. Only a few places where a Scottsman can use a Dragon Punch and Bazooka to finish a fight. Sound like insanity, then you don't know this game.


    That's right, we've got Worms:Reloaded.

    Odd enough mix of games yet? No? The next one is a little more conventional. You might feel a little cold from this game's inner working, but I'm told that the warmth from trying to run it on any PC will make you plenty toasty. Stay tuned!

    *PS: stay tuned. The weather man is forecasting a storm on either Thursday or Friday, that you don't want to miss.*

    Sweet toasty jebus on a cracker. Nobody showing any love after Worms? Is it that much of a niche game?


    Fine, I'll bite. Battlefield 3.
    [​IMG]

    I'm not crediting the poster, as this was EA's promotional material


    Are you all happy now? Can I get some decent action going now?

    If not, then the storm might just pass without hitting here. That would be a true shame.

    Wanted to surmise everything on the list so far. It might not be completely kosher, but I thought this deserved its own post.

    1) manofthem has graciously provided a copy of Portal 2
    2) AlienIsGOD has provided not one, but two copies of Nexuiz. Not only this, but you'll get a 75% discount on DLC.
    3) Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    4) Section 8: Prejudice
    5) Worms: Reloaded
    6) Battlefield 3


    If you missed it, that's seven (7) winners! If that isn't enough to get people to fill out their system specifications and answer why you come back to TPU again and again I can't think of what might.



    *On second hand, I can. I just don't want to say it...*

    Looking super awesome! A lot of games to be won by the good tenants of TPU :toast:

    If anyone hasn't grabbed BF3, this is the time to win it, a fun game! (not to mention all the other fine games ;))
