News Cool [H] Posted: Fri, Aug 20 2010 9:03 PM

Thanks to our friends at NVIDIA, we’ve got 20 copies of the excellent game Just Cause 2 to giveaway to our loyal HotHardware fans. They are digital distributable versions available via Steam, so winners can immediately begin enjoying their hot new game, as soon as we send over the download key!

As we've done with previous contest here at HotHardware, we’ll be giving away these Just Cause 2 keys to randomly selected contributors to our various on-line discussion systems, but like many previous contests, there are other ways to enter as well (see below).


To be entered, you’ve got to be a registered, active member of our forum—that’s it. If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and for free), right here.

From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussions here in the news section and in the forum. 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! The giveaway will run for the next 10 days, and we'll announce the winner here in the forum thread.

Just Cause 2 is a really cool game. We hope you win a copy! Now go make some new friends in the forum and get in the running! Good Luck!

Sounds great.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

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?

Is his name Ron Baptiste? When I saw the picture I said "I'll bet that's Ron the Baptist".

This is what growing up in the bible belt has done to me.

Woo, glad you guys started up some game giveaways!  I feel like we'll have more winners, since there are now 20 prizes instead of one.  Thanks for the opportunity Davo and Marco.

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!

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!
