Team is doing its best and preparing now. Please wait warmly until it is ready.
Welcome to the Seventh round of the Gaming Promotional Grant. This is an effort where users of the community will receive one free game on behalf of Stack Exchange. What's the catch?
Simple - ask questions and post answers to questions about the new game you got, have fun while helping us create a wonderful database of information on our own site here for the new game. We've had absolutely roaring success with games like The Witcher 2 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so let's keep the iron hot, shall we?
This time, we'll be following the basic rules as outlined in the proposal post.
Users with at least 500 reputation apply by filling out a form that specifies one game of their choice of new or upcoming games for the current big platforms. Up to 20 users will be selected from this pool pseudo-randomly, and will be reimbursed for their own purchase of the games after scanning and emailing the receipts (or through Steam or Amazon).
1000 500 as the limit to test the waters here.
"Big platforms" means XBox 360, PS3, Wii, and PC. What games are coming out this week, and the next two weeks after that? Courtesy of GameSpot, here are the current and upcoming games releases for the weeks beginning with...
- October 2, 2011: PC, PS3, Xbox, Wii

(For those curious, this is considered parallel to the Gaming Grant Fall 2011 Special Episode, so this is a prime opportunity for those who didn't get picked in there to step up to the plate.)
