Giving away 1 or more games a day until Christmas


[Giveaways]: A tonne of titles including AAA games to be given away. Spread the word!



[Why]:

I figured the best way to feel a little selfless would be to give a game away everyday for the next 23 days until Christmas.
Reading a lot of negative stuff all over and I thought it would be nice to see something good, something as an act of kindness.

[How]:
Must be a registered user of the forum on or before November 26th, 2013. New members are welcome but must become premium members to enter.
• I'll use random.org to generate a number based on the total number of posts in this thread.
• Number will be drawn between 7am-10am the next day.
• Screenshots of each number drawn on Random.org will be posted below each draw in the order of the games listed from top to bottom.
• Your first post should be some information on your RIG (Computer). After that, the more you post, the better chance of winning.
• Any posts after your first that are just a word or two will not win the game of the day. C'mon, it's a forum, have a conversation
• I'll be doing 3 *special draws*. Each *Special draw* will contain multiple games for each winner and multiple draws.
• Though I may post in the thread, if a random number lands on me (always excludes post #1) it will go to the next person below or before if my post is the last in the thread.
• I'll be posting giveaways 2 days in advance to keep people in the know.

[New Members]:
• I'm going to give a little wiggle room for new members that have joined after November 26th, 2013. In order to enter, you must have PREMIUM member status.
• You're contributing to an awesome community if you do. Read more about premium member status here: »Site FAQ »BASIC AND PREMIUM ACCOUNTS

[VERY IMPORTANT]:
All winners must PM me for their winnings within 72 hours (3 days).
• If you already own the game you won. You have 2 options: 1. Pick anyone on DSLR you would like me to PM and gift it to. 2. Redraw.

[Software required to claim games]:
• Steam - »store.steampowered.com
• Desura - »www.desura.com

I have an old Dell dual core machine that I keep buying new parts for. I'll eventually have a totally different system than the case but I'll keep on squeezing the last bits of this one for as long as I can. It was funny. I picked up the Arkham series and played it and thought it was easy, but then I upgraded the video card and it was so fast I had to re learn everything again.

Cool, glad I have a few posts going Since i asked i should also mention my specs and hope i win a game too! JK.

I run the following gaming rig i finally built and have wanted for ages (was new at the time), i'll list everything since i built it specifically as a gaming rig.

CPU: i7-3770k water cooled with the Corsair H80i overclocked to 4.6ghz
Motherboard: Asus Republic of Gamers Maximus V Formula
Ram: 16GB G.Skill
Video: 2 x Asus Matrix GTX 670's
PSU: some OCZ 1500 watt i've had a few years
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256gig + about 10 TB in mechanical drives
Sound: Audio Engine A5+ Bamboo edition with an Audio Engine D1 DAC
Keyboard: Corsair K90
Mouse: Logitech Performance Mouse MX
Monitors: 27" LG IPS - LG 46" LED TV up top and older 26" Acer

Fun system but thinking of upgrading the video cards to 3x 290x. Motherboard unfortunately doesn't support 3way sli with nvidia but does for ATI.

I should also mention this December 3rd game i'm giving away is the only one i need an email to gift it to you. I'll post a screenshot of the number generated on the site and who wins each game on the main OP.

Thanks everyone and I do hope to get more people interested otherwise you all will have a lot of new games lol.

This is very nice of you!

This past summer I built a 2.4Ghz C2Q rig with the Intel Badaxe 2, Q6600, 8gb Ram, and the Radeon HD 4850x2.

At some point I'll want to upgrade it more but I only paid $150 total for this rig so the initial investment will allow for some replacements along the way!

I don't need anything, but I might be able to contribute a couple gifts I have in my inventory.

I would probably limit it to premium DSLR members, or regular ones who can prove they've been active beyond the past 60 days, but that's just me, and I won't tell you how to run your own giveaway.

No you are right and I updated the OP to state the following: "Must be a registered user of the forums for at least 7 days prior to this giveaway"

Greenmaster: Since you just registered, i'll excuse you from this exception since I didn't make this a rule before you joined in.

This specifically because I don't want to hold it against anyone for joining at the wrong time and to make sure they are registered. I may consider a premium user giveaway but even if I don't, it's a great idea

On top of the giveaways i'll be doing, I've had people reach out to join in on this giveaway. Stay tuned, some awesome titles are going to be given away.

Each person who donates (unless you specify otherwise) will be credited to your generosity Some games now require Origin as well.

Steam, Desura and Origin, so please make sure to install one of these if you haven't already if you win.
