Want To Play A Game?


I got extra copies of Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars and Needs for Speed Carbon from EA, the world’s biggest game publisher. I don’t really have any use for them so if you want to win it, reply to this post and you’ll be added to the random drawing this Friday night. One person will win Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars, the other will win Need for Speed Carbon.

I never got into Command & Conquer, but I love the Need for Speed series. There’s really nothing quite like driving super expensive sports cars and cashing them into walls and each other. Good thing the game features a no damage mode! Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars was the game they played at the FiringSquad Invitational during Computex Taipei.

You only need to reply once to enter the draw. Replying a second time won’t get you a second entry. However, if you blog about it and link to this post, I’ll accept that as second entry. Just send a trackback so it shows up in the comments.

Good luck.

PS – The box maybe in Chinese, but there is an English install as well.

            **oh John,
            this took all day long just to leave a comment here. i think this is the biggest competition you’ve ever had. i can’t even load this page complete.

            seems everybody love to play game, unfortunately, there will be only one winner for each copy 😈

          2. Rob Schultz says:

            It looks like something is broken in your comments section. I couldn’t load the bottom part of the comments to leave anything at the bottom.

            I have C&C and think it’s a blast. It throws me back to when the first C&C was released.

            I’d love to win NFS!

    Is it in Chinese?

  24. KennyP says:

    Count me in, I think both of them are chinese version? I saw it stated “δΈ­ζ–‡η‰ˆ” at the bottom

    1. maybe it means chinese supported.

      1. Jarle says:

        Or maybe they are pirate copies? 😈

        1. Ed Lau says:

          No, John won them at Computex. They are legit, official games but since he was in Taiwan at the time, they’re the Chinese version. Don’t worry…they install in English as well.

          1. oh, i see, thanks, Ed. Seems that you’re a regular here

          2. Ed and John are tight! They go way back.

  34. Count me in; I am bound to win here one day πŸ™‚
