    It's been a pleasure to have joined the WCG team recently! That team, as well as the F@H I'm sure, is full of really awesome people, generous and always ready to help. A big :respect: goes out to all the members who continue to sacrifice their time, energy, equipment, and resources for a cause greater than themselves.

    Count me in for Metro 2033 (I'm a big fan of Russian-themed stuff) :toast:

    EDIT: I got a copy of Metro 2033 free from THQ, so count me in for DiRT Showdown :)
    I'd love to have an opportunity to drive irresponsibly without any risk of injury.

    I gotta say, I was impressed with Metro 2033. Not only was it a beast to run maxed, but I thought the story was intriguing, much much more so than the average shooter. I think they did a really good job setting an awesome atmosphere throughout the game, at all the different levels, which helped immerse you into this run down world. Another thing that was spot on was that they didn't overload you with ammo, that ammo was more limited, hence making you play more responsibly. Can't wait for Metro Last Light :)

    Sorry to rant on about it... Great choice [Ion]

    I've never really considered joining any contest since I joined TPU, but damn I want Batman Arkham City. BTW, I rarely post on the WCG section, but I go read the Pie and the WCG Daily Numbers everyday. Oh and give me that f**king game. :cool:

    I wouldn't mind a copy of Prototype 2; although I may have a hard time pausing my gpu in order to play.

    I haven't played it either yet, haven't done much lately since gpus have been crunching like woah.

    As a side note, Prototype 2 also comes with RADNET DLC pack :)

    Maybe we're all afraid of someone passing us in the rankings if we take time out to play a game! :eek:

    Part of the reason I went with a G92 card in the ITX setup--now I don't have to feel as bad about taking some time to play video games ;)

    OP edited to include all games so far, with one exception that I need to confirm, which I'll do tonight. Coming soon is a better picture to represent them all.

    Big thanks to: t_ski, Norton, Maban, FordGT90Concept, ALMOSTunseen, Delta6326, theonedub, and stinger608. I hope I didn't miss any. If I did, i'll add you in. :toast:

    Still plenty of games left to be entered for. It looks like this will stretch on a few more days til we get enough entered.

    Speaking of which, seems we have more people offering games than people wanting games :laugh:

    All is well though, we have time! :toast:
