Competition: Bodycount [FINISHED]
Posted: 05.09.2011 15:37 by Comments: 55
Hmmm... guess you guys weren't fans then? No biggie - just because our own recommendation was so... positive... we here at Strategy Informer know that everyone has their own opinions, and we figured we'd give you guys a chance to decide for yourself.

But hey, if you're cool with us telling you want to think, who are we to judge? Now, go get me a sandwich.

We didn't get the full five entries this time around, but those of you who did enter will still get your prizes. We'll find homes for the spares.

Until next time!
-------------------------------------------
One... two... three... four... five... si- oh no, that one's still alive. Oh hello there, didn't see you. As you can see, I'm a little busy at the moment. What? Well obviously I'm not actually busy, I'm just pretending that I am so that this intro is at least a little bit entertaining.

Of course, it's not all fun and games you know. In this line of work, people die. People get maimed, killed, impaled onto spikes... sure, they may be made of pixels instead of flesh and bones, but they still bleed. They still feel, and when a bunch of them have been slaughtered for the sake of entertainment, someone has to deal with the bodies.

Codemaster's answer is to simple count them. We're not sure why, but it seems to be quite effective, so effective that they've taken the experience and put it into a computer game, cryptically called Bodycount. We've managed to secure some copies of this very educational tool in expired pixel clean up for your pleasure:

The Prizes

5 x Copies of Bodycount on the Xbox 360

The Competition

First off, post below saying "I'm in".

We're reverting back to our usual modus operandi for this one - comments. If you're unsure what this means, just ask, but the top five commenter's within the time period will win. No spamming, no useless comments, and no long-running arguments. Simply show your interest around the site.

The Rules

* EU Only

* If you won the Age of Empires: Online Competition, you won't be allowed to enter this competition (but you can the one after this).

* This competition will end on Monday 12th September.

Man I cant do this one either as I have a ps3. Would feel bad entering to then only trade the game in.

Good luck Xboxers

Not interested as I don't have an Xbox 360.

Good luck folks, don't forget to comment lots!

Good luck to those with X360's. But I have to wonder, are there 5 EU regulars with Xboxes?
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Sep 06, 2011
FoolWolf
I'm out!
I have Xbox - didn't participate in the last two competitions - but this game is nothing that I want after reading the reviews... Would hate to win a competition with a prize you don't want 100% and risk being opted out in one that would be great...

Good luck guys!
By Gyorn (SI Core) on Sep 06, 2011
Gyorn
unsilviu, exactly my thought ^^

Anyway, good luck to everyone participating :)

Btw: Joe, you may want to add the "I'm in" requirement.
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Sep 06, 2011

No xbox here either :).
If it were a PS3 game i could have at least played it at a friend's place. Good luck to those that participate.
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 06, 2011
JPerry06
give 3 back SI and get some PS3 games :P
By JustCommunication (SI Core) on Sep 06, 2011

Oh yeah, good point - don't forget to post saying "I'm in" so we can track you.

I have a 360 but I just can't seem to play shooters on consoles.
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Sep 06, 2011

Surprisingly small turn-out this time around. Spread the word guys - invite new members:)
By stuntkid (SI Elite) on Sep 06, 2011

I'm in

Don't mind playing shooters on consoles :)
By Kres (SI Elite) on Sep 06, 2011
Kres
Yeah what's going on guys? Participate! x)
By Thibby (SI Core Veteran) on Sep 07, 2011
Thibby
Maybe only a couple of people have a 360?
By Kres (SI Elite) on Sep 07, 2011
Kres
Seems like it mhm
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011
JPerry06
oh dear :(
By unsilviu (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011
unsilviu
Don't be sad! Look at it this way: all those who enter will basically have a guranteed game :D
By hunter612 (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011
hunter612
Perhaps the low number of participants is because the competition is for EU residents only?
By unsilviu (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011
unsilviu
Nope
Explanation: Kres, the big boss here, is from Europe, as is a lot of the staff. I think that at least half of us members are European. There must have been a dozen participants in other EU competitions.
Give it time, though. There are bound to be new people joining the site for this, as they did for AoE. This is the point behind the competitions, after all :P
By stuntkid (SI Elite) on Sep 07, 2011
stuntkid
There have been lots of EU members on here. Wondered where everyone disappeared to :S. They'll come flooding back soon
By Thibby (SI Core Veteran) on Sep 07, 2011
Thibby
I'm European, if the comp was for the PS3 I would have participated :)
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Sep 07, 2011
nocutius
I'm not sure but i think there are more PS3's than xbox's sold in the EU. But i have no idea how significant the lead is.

But still, out of 15 million+ EU xbox owners only 2 have showed up so far :).
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011
JPerry06
i might have to consider putting myself in and give the game to my brother but do i risk losing out on the next comp that could be a ps3 comp
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Sep 07, 2011
nocutius
Make him register and enter for himself, solves your dilemma nicely :).
By Odynee (SI Veteran Member) on Sep 07, 2011
Odynee
Good luck to all xbox360 owners! :)
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011
JPerry06
Well he is 11 so didnt think he would be a good aid plus he isnt a serious gamer
By Jasca_Ducato (SI Core) on Sep 07, 2011

Yeer, I gave this game's demo a try... I think I'll wait.
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Sep 08, 2011
FoolWolf
Well as stated above - this game isn't for me. I thought that we had more Xbox guys though...
By Nicolas19 (SI Core Veteran) on Sep 08, 2011
Nicolas19
I don't own an Xbox, so I'm not in. Next time maybe a sweet pre-order for the upcoming Paradox titles, like Magna Mundi or CKII...?:)
By Gyorn (SI Core) on Sep 08, 2011
Gyorn
CKII would be awesome *hint* ;)

You might want to read the SI review of this fellas.

:P

Competition for "Sengoku" would be good, Nicolas (I thought you'd disappeared, btw mate).
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 10, 2011
JPerry06
Is there 5 people in this yet?
By unsilviu (SI Core) on Sep 10, 2011
unsilviu
Don't think so. SI people, if not enough people come, can you at least give the copies back to the store?
By SirRoderick (SI Elite) on Sep 10, 2011
SirRoderick
Has this ever happened before?
By bosnian_dragon (SI Core) on Sep 10, 2011
bosnian_dragon
Won't participate in this one, good luck to all who will.
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Sep 11, 2011
herodotus
Perhaps many aren't entering on the offchance it might exclude them from the next comp. Don't be put off, spread the word. I'm sure there are plenty of XB gamers out there who'd like the game (then again, Europe has the biggest PC gaming base in the world compared with the US with it's XB fanbase:P).
By bosnian_dragon (SI Core) on Sep 11, 2011
bosnian_dragon
The main reason why I'm not participating is that I don't own an Xbox, and the second reason is that I don't like this game. At all.
By devel (SI Elite) on Sep 11, 2011

Good Luck to Everyone :D
By unsilviu (SI Core) on Sep 11, 2011

Ooh, welcome back, devel XD
By Nicolas19 (SI Core Veteran) on Sep 12, 2011
Nicolas19
Thanks for the concern, Herodotus:) I'm fine, it's just that with gf and work, I didn't have much time lately. Have pre-ordered Sengoku nonetheless:)
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 12, 2011
JPerry06
so the comp ends, what happened?
By Kres (SI Elite) on Sep 13, 2011
Kres
Yeah update above. Went gloriously. Sorry devs :(

So did someone actually win this competition?
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Sep 13, 2011
FoolWolf
Congratulations to the winner(s)? ;)
Nice competition - a shame that the goodies weren't up to par with a real SI competition!:D
By JPerry06 (SI Core) on Sep 13, 2011
JPerry06
My home would welcome a spare :p
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Sep 13, 2011

You should have entered then :)
