Welcome to the Ninth round of the Gaming Promotional Grant. Users in good standing can receive one free game on behalf of Gaming Stack Exchange. What's the catch?
Simple - ask questions and post answers to questions about your new game; have fun while helping us create a wonderful database of information on our own site here for the new game. Here's how it works:
Users with at least 500 reputation are eligible to apply. Fill out a form specifying one game of your 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 purchase of the game by one of these methods:
- Scan and email your game receipt to us; we'll reimburse through PayPal
- Steam gift
- Ordered and mailed through Amazon.com (or appropriate national branch)
If you're selected, you'll receive simple instructions via email detailing all the information you'll have to provide to get reimbursed. If you won in the previous round, you are not eligible to win a game in this round.
"Big platforms" means XBox 360, PS3, Wii, and PC. What games are eligible? Any game coming out this week or the next two weeks:
- October 30, 2011: PC, PS3, Xbox, Wii
- November 6, 2011: PC, PS3, Xbox, Wii
- November 13, 2011: PC, PS3, Xbox, Wii
This round is starting a bit late. Nevertheless, certain big games are coming right around the corner, among all other things coming out next week. Applications will close on Sunday, November 6th at the end of the UTC day, so that we can order games in time for people.
Another announcement - Steam has recently been repeatedly refusing to let us buy things. I don't know why. We had a one day break from that behavior before it started blocking us again. So, if you opt for a Steam reimbursement, keep in mind that we may not be able to gift it to you in time if they continue to block us. It may be more effective to use the standard reimbursement route.
