[Updated] Here, have whatever game you want!

I told you I had something good for you guys this week! CTVG has partnered with AllKeyShop.com, a comparison site for CD Key Digital Download Stores to bring you an awesome giveaway! Except this giveaway is a little different from the ones I’ve done in the past. This time, you get to choose the game you want! That’s right, by entering this giveaway, you’re getting the chance to win a CD key for a PC game of your choice. Don’t say I never do nice things for you.

So a little info for you first. If you don’t know what a CD key is, it’s a multi-digit code that the store sends you via email after your purchase. You use this code in Steam, Battlenet, uPlay, or Origin (official download platforms) to activate and download your game.  There are obvious benefits to purchasing a CD key, such being affordable and being accessible from your home in a matter of minutes, rather than having to trek to the store. The reason the price is generally lower is because the stores are online and have to pay less tax. They also don’t have to manage stock or send you a box. 

As you might know, there are a lot of stores out there that sell CD keys and while most of them are legal and provide a good service, there are those that aren’t so reliable. Sometimes keys aren’t sent or there’s a lack of customer support if a problem arises after purchase. What Allkeyshop does is compare stores where you can buy and download your game of choice and show you the best price and the best service so that you don’t have to worry about making a bad purchase. So check it out!

[UPDATE: It took a little while, but we finally managed to get in touch with a winner, so I’m pleased to confirm that Krzysztof Górski has won the game he chose – Trine 2! Also, the giveaway was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who took part and don’t worry, there will be more giveaways in the future and more chances to win free games. :)]

100 Follower Giveaway: BioShock Infinite

BioShockInfinite 2013-04-14 16-10-35-78

HERE IT IS!!! THE FABLED (since Tuesday) GIVEAWAY! And you guessed it right (with a small hint from me), I’m giving away BioShock Infinite for PC! Ok, so I realise that a lot of you have probably played this by now, but I think it’s a tragedy that some of you haven’t yet. So if you were saving up to buy this or just hadn’t gotten around to picking it up, now you have no excuse! I wanted to give you guys something special to thank you for supporting my blog and if you’ve read my review on it, you’ll know that I think BioShock Infinite is the best game I’ve played this year (I haven’t played The Last of Us yet, so I can’t compare).

50 Subscriber giveaway: Half Life 2! [Closed]

Well, that was quick! Thanks for all the support and encouragement, guys! It’s been much appreciated. You’re all great. 🙂 Also, hello and thank you to the new subscribers for pushing it over the 50 subscriber mark. I hope you’ll stick around and see what else I’ve got in store for you guys! Now, it’s time to get this started!

First of all, I could not praise Half Life 2 enough. It truly is a seminal game of our time. It’s also one of my personal favourites and sits firmly at no. 3 of my favourite games of all time list. Also it’s for the PC, which is arguably my favourite platform as well, so now I’m just  throwing my favourite things at you left, right and centre. For more info on HL2, check out the list here

If you want a chance to win this game, just subscribe to my blog if you’re not already and leave a comment to this post saying ‘I want Half Life 2!’ The only other requirement is that you have Steam. If you don’t have it, just go to their website and download it for free. The giveaway will end noon on Monday (GMT) and I’ll be picking the winner randomly after that. Good luck! 

UPDATE: And the winner is… drumroll please … Toastie!

Congratulations! I’ll be emailing you at the email address you provided to ask for your Steam ID, so watch out for it! For everyone else, better luck next time! Watch out for more giveaways that I’ll be doing in the future. I’ll be looking to give away awesome indie titles as well as AAA titles (when I’ve got the cash to spare), so hopefully there’ll be something to suit everyone!

50 subscriber giveaway!

Yup, I know it may not seem like a huge number to some, but hey I think it’s really exciting and I love all of you guys so I want to give you a little something back for supporting me thus far! I haven’t been blogging very long, but the support from the community and all of you guys has been awesome. I’m currently on 49 subscribers, but I thought I’d go ahead and announce it now anyway. Many of you probably have this, but the gift I got was Half Life 2 for PC. I wanted to pick something from my favourite games list and Half Life 2 is way up there as you can see. If you haven’t played it, you’re seriously missing out and so hopefully I’ll be able to rectify that! I’ll announce more details when I hit 50 subscribers, but essentially you’ll just have to be subscribed or subscribe if you haven’t already, probably leave a comment indicating you want in and have Steam. Anyways, more information will be coming soon!
