Wanted to share word on a few community contests that were brought to my attention.
The Nexus community sites (as in New Vegas Nexus and TESNexus) are closing in on reaching 2.5 million registered members. To celebrate the occasion, they’ve kicked off a modding competition on both site. The site’s administrator, DarkOne, details the competition’s rules here. Here’s an excerpt…
“Ergo the theme of this modding competition will be “The community we are in”. I’m hoping to see some great mods that cover users in the community that might have influenced you during your time here, the various sites of the community that you are a part of (it doesn’t just have to be the Nexus!) and what you like about the community.
The type of mod you make, be it a quest, a new landmass, a house or castle, NPCs, weapons, armour, etc. is totally up to you but I will look more favourably upon entries that have a quest in them because I’m a sucker for a good quest! That doesn’t mean a mod with a quest in is going to win, however, and if you come up with something really unique then I’ll probably love it! A Nexus defence mod, for example, where you defend fort Nexus from a horde of trolls with your fellow moderators wielding ban hammers by your side is something I’ve dreamt about… “
After the first day of PAX, where we gave out thousands of Fallout: New Vegas NCR shirts at our booth, the #1 question I heard at our booth was, “Do you have any NCR shirts left?!?!” Even after returning from the show, I’m haunted by the question. Emails, tweets… even people asking me at dinner.
For folks in the US and Canada, I’ve got good news! Planet Fallout has an easy-to-enter contest on their site for a chance to win one of the coveted shirts. For full details, head here.
At this year’s E3, we handed out Bethesda track jackets as a giveaway at our booth. They’re comfortable, fashionable, and feature logos from Fallout, Hunted, RAGE, and Brink.
They’re also pretty hard to find… but over the weekend, GamesRadar announced they’re giving away two of the jackets. For a chance to win, you best enter today (the contest ends tomorrow). For more details, read the contest rules here.
Update: Sorry for the confusion. It appears many of you think you need to comment on this blog… please follow the rules at GamesRadar.
You always think when you enter a sweepstakes, “I’m never going to win this thing… but what the heck, I’ll enter my information.” That was the case for John Mogensen, who entered the Brink sweepstakes at Gamestop. Now look at John — he’s got a new 55 inch LED TV (3D-ready, no less), a new game console, and a surround sound setup. And he’s smiling too.
John’s a pretty big Bethesda fan… his achievements in Oblivion look glorious on the new TV.
Unlike the resource-strapped Ark, we have a lot of spare materials laying around at Bethesda — like stacks and stacks of incredibly slick Brink posters. And unlike the segregated Security and Resistance factions, we’re willing to share.
So here’s the deal: we’re giving away 8 of each of the above posters, for a total of 48 tubes mailed to the doors of Brink fans. All you need to do for a chance to win is enter the contest on either Facebook or Twitter (or both).
On Facebook, we’re giving you more of a preference. We’ll be posting one new poster image per day over the next six days. Just go to Facebook.com/BrinktheGame and “Like” one of the six poster images to be entered to win that poster. Of course, if you like them all, you’ll certainly have a better chance to win.
Click through for the official contest rules. Good luck!
