Age of Wushu

As you may remember, I was in Los Angeles for E3 last week to see what was happening in the world of video games. We learned some new information about the upcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4, for example, and we found out that the NVIDIA SHIELD is going to start shipping very soon. I didn’t have as much of an opportunity to roam the trade show floor as I had hoped, but I was able to return with some swag to give away to you guys.

Even though there is an increasingly large focus on console gaming (and that’s mostly where I find myself too), PC gaming is still alive and well. If you’re the kind of person who prefers playing games on your computer, then this is the contest for you. While at the NVIDIA press event, we were introduced to several developers and how they implement NVIDIA’s technology in their titles. This included blockbusters like Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Splinter Cell: Blacklist, but it also looked at titles developed by indie studios and international developers. One such example is Snail Games USA, a division of Snail Game based in Suzhou, China.

As a thank you for attending their event, we were each given a copy of Age of Wushu, along with a couple of special downloadable codes for Age of Wushu and Snail Game’s other big title Black Gold. And I’d like to give these to you, the Beyond the Rhetoric reader.

What Can I Win?

So, just to quickly go over what’s up for grabs, there is a PC DVD-ROM of the Age of Wushu game, a “Premium Loot Card” to receive some special items within that game, and an exclusive 7-day Guest Pass Key to try Black Gold.

The Fine Print

The contest is open to anyone in Canada and the continental United States. If you are an international reader, you can still enter, but you will need to supply me with a mailing address in either Canada or the United States (unless you want to pay for shipping yourself). The winner will be chosen at random and will have 48 hours to provide a shipping address before an alternate winner is selected. All decisions are final.

I’ve given away games before and I’ll likely give away games again. This is my little way of thanking the Beyond the Rhetoric community for your continued support. Good luck!

UPDATE (July 2, 2013): Congratulations, Cecilia. You have been randomly selected as the winner of this contest! Thanks again to everyone who entered and be sure to keep your eyes out for the next giveaway on Beyond the Rhetoric.
