    Congrats to 1kurgan1 on winning Spec Ops The Line and Irony for Dear Esther!!!!
    :toast::toast:


    [​IMG]

    Let's pick up where we left off, shall we? This is just a single game giveaway, and today, we have Spec Ops: The Line up for grabs, a cover-based TPS which has turned out to be quite a decent game.

    To Enter: Post what about this game interests you.
    Bonus Chance: To make this giveaway more interesting to read through, I'm offering a chance to get your name entered twice in the drawing. So considering this is a 3-man-squad based game, include in your post what 3-man-squad you would choose for battle (you + 2 other members. Purely fictitious, no real eminent threat of violence exists). :laugh:

    Requirements: TPU join date of August 2012 or earlier, post count of 50, and must not own the game (no exceptions). This giveaway is for a key that activates on Steam :). Even if you've won before, give your entry and chance a win!!!

    Closing Time: Sunday @1pm EST 7pm EST (subject to change (+/-) without notice)

    Important: Once the winner has been announced, both in the thread and PM'd, they have 24 hours to redeem the game. If I receive no contact, a new winner will be drawn; old winner forfeits their share. :banghead:

    A Big Thanks to all those who support these little game giveaways, to the mods who allow them to go on, to all those who have contributed in the past, and to all for looking and reading, and . You all deserve a free drink :toast:

    There will also be a runner up prize. All those that enter for Spec Ops will be automatically entered for a copy of Dear Esther, which will be sent via Steam. If the winner already has Dear Esther, they can either pick someone themselves to pass it along to, or alternatively the next person on the list will receive it. :toast:

    This game does not interest me, so don't add me to the potential winner's list.

    Three person team;
    BlackPanther : Assassin. Silent, deadly, you never saw her coming.
    Me : Sniper. Bang, you're dead. You never saw it coming.
    Tatty : Artillery. Loud whistle of ordinace right before you are blown to hell. You never saw it coming.

    :D

    Thanks again for having a contest, manofthem. :toast:

    Too bad you're not entering because that's a great post, exactly what I was hoping for :D. Hopefully others will contribute in a similar fashion. Keep 'em rolling, as we have not a soul yet :cry:

    And it's a pleasure to be able to throw a little contest here and there; I've taken a page from many other generous members' books of niceness (yourself included ;)). :rockout:

    Well, it depends... If there's not much interest in the next day, I'm going to open it up to everyone even if you've just won something from me :D. So check back tomorrow; we should see by then how it's going to go.

    Well, since there has been surprisingly low interest in this game, I've decided not to exclude those in The Winners' Circle, so even if you've won from me before, you're eligible. Only requirements are laid out in the OP.

    Hopefully we can get some good entries and have a smile :)

    Also, it's a quality game, just ask Phusius :D! And perhaps unexpectantly so, demo was eh but I've been having a good time with it :toast:

    I dont have this game i give it a try to enter the contest... :)


    All games in which there are military operations kindle my interest, what interests me is the setting of this game because it is unusual. There are many military games similar to each other but this offers intrigue and fascination in many aspects. The Dust, desert and Dubai inspired locations...

    I like the idea of ​​using the environment to kill enemies, and a general history of dramatic and full of mystery.

    I like this game because it is a team based game. You need to strategic each team member with its skill professionally to complete a mission.

    3-man-squad includes:-
    Heavy Armor- which covering fire to the enemy to allow rest of the team to kill silently.
    Me (Camouflage Lizard)- with my capability of camouflage with the environment, while my team is covering fire, I can kill the enemy silently only with knife.
    Sniper- a must have to scout & take a target from far and covering two of us too.

    Thanks manofthem :toast:

    Well I am going to enter even though I already have the game. Entering due to the chance for Dear Esther. :)

    Of course if I win the Spec Ops I will gift it to someone that wants it. I will probably use the random number generator to achieve this fairly.

    Interested in this game because I played this series back on PS1 Co-op with my cousin. We played every single game through to the end, they were tough, and rated low because they were so tough you couldn't beat them single player really. But Co-op it was great, had to use quad tactics to win, and thats why I loved it, so would like to try this new one.

    And my 3 man Squad would be me, Ufgy, and Marineborn.

    I loved the demo, and have been wanting this game, I'm interested. I love the sandy dubai style, kindof like ultralux buildings rotting in a dead dessert is cool.

    We're picking members on tpu right?

    1: Themailman78, as he could draw attention with masterful pontification then pop them off with his skill in fps shooters. (See his sig)
    2: Mussels, as he should have the muscles to weild a heavy machine gun.
    3: Me, as I will fly the helicopter with a minigun.
