We will be randomly selecting a two winners daily, starting Saturday August 21, based on community involvement and quality of contribution. We’ll also be picking winners from our HotHardware News Alert list and our DiggFacebook and / or Twitter pages. And while you’re at it, hitting NVIDIA’s Facebook page couldn’t hurt either!

Strange to see Square Enix in London?
So it looks like you get to run around and blow up south American Communist revolutionaries with Ice cream trucks?
 
Looks like fun, Yet I wonder what Sean Penn and Oliver Stone would say about that!

Based on the screenshot above, I take it that the game is about a christian missionary who skydives into the jungles of South America, armed only with the word of the lord and a Nintendo Power Glove?

Game looks really cool. I don't expect to win a copy, because I have been so busy at work that I have not had time for my trusty HH, but grats to the ones that win! Another awesome give away.

I'll have to add up the hours that I have spent posting here and the prizes that I have won and see how much you guys are paying me an hour Stick out tongue

i have no idea what the story line of this game is, but i love it because of the openness of the game and all the kick ass game play lol. Think jungle gta with a kick ass ninja grappling hook. ( not sure if that made much sense but thats how i picture this game.)

Haha, thanks! But I already have it. I guess I'll wait until the end of the contest and see who didn't get one and then I'll pass it on (unless Marco sees this post and decides to give mine to someone else himself).  But thanks HH! I haven't won a single contest in years (last one was a dvd about 6 years ago)! I might not keep the game, but I'm keeping the warm, fuzzy feeling of winning!

mentaldisorder 4 years ago

Well, I don't know what to say.  I would like to thank Marco, Davo, HH, and nVidia for offering HH and its members the opportunity to win another prize giveaway.  I look forward to playing this game and hopefully we'll get some multiplayer going (when it is available) between the winners and whoever has the game.  Thanks again guys, and I wish the rest of you luck in the draw!

Thanks Marco and the rest of you HH guys!

I have enough games to keep me occupied for the moment (I could happily play just L4D/L4D2 for the next year ), so I decided to play the karma forward and re-gifted my code to one of the Wine developers who's responsible for a lot of their DirectX implementation.

So, he gets a great game as appreciation for his work, and I reap the rewards later when he's got a good DX10+ test candidate to help him test. Win/win, really.

Thanks again!

Heh, that too!  But the Eyefinity contest was judged by ASUS as far as I know, so I didn't bother mentioning that  :P

I think somewhere in that thread is the real answer, and if I remember correctly, it was you that said it.  I tried a quick search but wasn't able to find it, but to paraphrase: "Stick around this site long enough, and you're bound to win something".  In my brief time on here, I've seen HotHardware already host 5 or 6 giveaways and I really think that sentiment is true.

sackyhack 4 years ago

Look at the very top of your Steam client. Go to "Games" -> then "Activate a Product on Steam" -> then just click through the menus until you get to a part where you can enter in the code Marco sent you. I think that should do it.

realneil 4 years ago

Yes, the 'activate a product' link did it for me. I copy and pasted the code into the space provided and Steam did the rest.

Heh, I wish this game had some kind of multiplayer. I wonder what a match involving all HH members would be like. Probably instead of fighting we'd all be running in circles and whipping the mouse around to see how tinkering with various settings affects the frame-rate.

detnight 4 years ago

I sure like taking the bad guys out with the Hook. I don't like that it takes 3-4 shoots with shot gun to kill a man

sackyhack 4 years ago

Yeah the aiming in this game is pretty wonky. I hate how I can be aiming right at someone's head but keep missing. It was made to assists with hits, but at the price of accuracy. The hook is incredibly fun though. I feel like Spiderman.

@realneil

I'm the same way. I never have enough time to play a game to get good at it, so I do terrible in multiplayer. I did get pretty good at the 1st Halo though.

I just started checking out the game today looks cool! Going to spend some more time on it tomorrow.Been a while since I,ve played some games looking forward to getting some more.That Metro in the other contest looks like its a winner too maybe I,ll get me a copy of that too. I guess it might have a demo I,ll have to check and see what its like. Also a friend of mine gave me Black Hawk Down game it looks fun also played it a little while the other day, just might have to start collecting them. Anyway Inspector and SuperDave enjoy and congrats and Thanks to Marco and HH for the win!!
