Hello readers, and happy new year! Welcome to our first game giveaway and, although we came up with the idea of having a giveaway on the blog what seems like an age ago, it wasn’t until very recently that the question of how we could do it was finally solved. To win a copy of R-Type Delta on PS1 all we ask is that you read on and comment on this post. In brief: we are planning on mailing, yes, posting, physical copies of this PS1 game, strange and old-hat as it sounds in these days of Steam, PSN, online gifting, voucher codes and whatnot. Of course, being based in the UK we have the PAL release, so it won’t work on American/Japanese Playstations. We will post anywhere though, UK, international, you name it.
So how can you win a copy of R-Type Delta? It’s very simple. We just want you to try swapping out any word or words in a videogame’s title for the word “boob”, and post it in the comment section below. The people who can make us laugh with their invented titles will win a copy. Yes, it’s totally crass. Probably sexist. But I have to admit it amuses us to no end. Here are a few examples we came up with ourselves that made us giggle, so you get the picture just how puerile we are here at Very Very Gaming:
- Prince of Persia: The Boob Within (PoP: The Warrior Within)
- Silent Boob (Silent Hill)
- Legend of Zelda: Skyward Boob (LoZ: Skyward Sword)
- Shadow of the Boob (Shadow of the Colossus)
- Metal Gear Solid 3: Boob Eater (MGS3: Snake Eater)
Feel free to be creative with it and incorporate “boob” within other words (XenoBoob, Boobastic, etc), make use of the plural form, boobs (Boobs into Dreams), or whatever you like. The more absurd the better, so give it a try. Also do include multiple titles in a single comment – it’ll up your chances of hitting upon a winner.
We will email you if you win. So if you have a WordPress account we’ll email the address connected to that account, and if you’re a non-WordPress user you have to provide an email address to comment – that’s the email address we’ll use to contact you on, so be warned and make sure it’s a real/up-to-date address. Don’t write your email address in the comment itself. We can see the email address you enter at our end without opening you up to spam.
I hope there will be some interest in this since, thankfully, we are at least giving away a very good, and reasonably rare game in R-Type Delta. I got really into this game a while back, not that you’d know since I haven’t previously written/talked about it on the blog. I’ve nearly finished a review of the game for Stefan Grasso’s reviews blog however to coincide with the contest, so when that is done I’ll link to it here for my thoughts. Suffice to say for now, difficulty be damned, Delta is a real treat of a game and a doggedly old-school shooter.
So that’s R-Type Delta covered, now who’s up for bad boob/videogame jokes below in order to win a free game?! (Or… more R-Type discussion I suppose, if you insist…)
