COMPETITION: Alan Wake 'Special' PC Edition
Posted: 21.03.2012 13:03 by Comments: 67
If I should die before I wake... better hope my name's not Alan. As a belated celebration for both the Alan Wake PC edition, and Alan Wake: American Nightmare, we've teamed up with Microsoft and Remedy to offer you the chance to win a 'Special' Alan Wake copy.


The Prize

1x Alan Wake 'Special' Edition (PC)

If anyone is interested, the 'Special' edition includes the following:

- Premium packaging
- Disc 1: Main game plus both DLCs The Signal and The Writer
- Disc 2: OST of the game including 13 Tracks (Audio-CD)
- 6 Post cards with different pictures/scenes from the game
- Manual
- 1 poster (printed on both sides)
- 7 stickers with different pictures/scenes/characters from the game

The Competition

Step One: Post below saying "I'm In"

Step Two: ?

Step Three: Profit.

Once the competition period has expired, we'll pick a winner from random and PM them a question. They have 24 hours to respond, otherwise they've forfeited their chance and we'll pick someone else. If they get the question right, they win, if not, then again we'll pick someone else. We'll reveal the question in the PM.

The Rules

* This is a physical, boxed copy of the game, so we're once again restricting entry to US & EU residents only.

* One Entry per person

* If you won in the last competition, you can't enter into this one.

Standard two week period applies, so we'll be closing this competition on Wednesday April 4th. Good luck, and keep that torch with you at all times!

Ok so lets sort this out! Going to put you all in randomize list and see what happens!

...

And FoolWolf is the winner! And he got a PM. Or well, a M as it's called.

Hey Wolfy, well done mate. Enjoy.

Grats if it's true, but wasn't the drawing two days too early?
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
Kres
I ended it too soon. Oh sorry guys. Fortunately there weren't too many applications. Sheh. I have some date problems on my comp. It keeps jumping me back a day every here and there...

Wasn't an April joke or anything. FoolWolf did win. I've PM'd him. Didn't got a reply yet. But he'll show up soon I hope.
By djole381 (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
djole381
Well, FoolWolf has 24hrs to reply you Kres. If he doesn't you'll have to pick someone else...
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
Kres
Yeah I know. We'll stick with the rules there. Well, lets give him until midnight April 5th to not make a more mess out of this. Bloody date problem. I'm sorry again guys. I don't know why that keeps happening. Started happening since the last time change.
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
nocutius
Well as long as Foolwolf is thrown into the hat and given another chance in case he doesn't see the notification in time then it should not be a problem for anyone.

It would be kinda unfair to him otherwise, i think.
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
Kres
Well, that's not the rule unfortunately. Since he could again not show up. FoolW is around often though so I presume he will show up.
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
nocutius
I know but this is an exception as the drawing was supposed to be on a different day and he /might/ be expecting to log-in then.

I don't think putting him back in the hat would hurt anyone, it would only mean that the drawing happened at the correct time with everyone that entered - as if nothing had happened.
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
Kres
Yep which is why I said we will wait by midnight 5th April. Competition was supposed to end on 4th. So he has even extra time to get to it. But all in all it puts us back into regular time. I've made a mess didn't I. Sorry...
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Apr 03, 2012
nocutius
Oh boy my bad, I mixed up the dates myself :)
I thought you're gonna pick another winner if he doesn't respond until midnight today.
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Apr 03, 2012
herodotus
I'll contact him on Steam if I can so he doesn't miss this. I'd certainly have entered as this is a great package, alas.....

"I come from a land down under, where beer does flow and men chunder.
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover".

Rock On!

Well, gratz Wolf! Hope you get back online soon ;)
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Apr 04, 2012
FoolWolf
Wow - here I'm gone a few days and didn't think I won - but I had the 4th marked in my calendar - so I have answered the PM - and it's the 4th ... did I still win?
pretty please...
By nocutius (SI Elite) on Apr 04, 2012
nocutius
Yes you're in time, a day early even :)
Congrats
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Apr 04, 2012
FoolWolf
Thanks nocutius - I hope so - since my first sceptical approach to AW - I have read nothing but good of the PC version so I'm swinging around on this one... I may be old, but not old enough to change my mind ;)
By Arrecoolast (SI Core) on Apr 04, 2012

Congrats mate! :D

By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Apr 04, 2012

Thanks guys, still waiting for Kres' final ruling ;)
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 04, 2012
Kres
Yep FoolW, all good. Glad you've shown up! :) talk via PM
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on Apr 04, 2012
FoolWolf
Yippie :)

You guys don't know how well this ended a series of bad events here!

Thanks for another great competition guys! Really appreciated.

The PI really put some effort into that one eh?
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 05, 2012
Kres
Anybody got some spare games or furniture we can give away? We got no stuff arranged atm. But being worked on. Kidding about the question of course... should have something soon, hopefully!

@unsilviu: yeah I fell for that. I even mentioned congrats to Paradox for starting that. Damn it. Such a fool :p
By BoneArc (SI Elite) on Apr 09, 2012

euhhh .... i dont think i will join this one ... i am feeling the sting of the " No entering next competition if you win this one "
I'll wait for the next one ... GOOD LUCK TO ALL

I got some headphones, one or two mouses I don't use and I can always brew you a strong enough cup of coffee should you come visiting :)

I am In shame to tell, but I still have that normal wow game I won back when Cata launched. Someone else bought it for me the day before my copy arrived! So, yeah, I had to use one, because I couldn't return the other.. Want it back? I would have no trouble sending it to UK again :D
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 12, 2012
Kres
Seems we got some new stuff to giveaway! I'll know more soon. Sorry for the competition ad still being up!

Noooo, thanks guys! That wont be necessary. It's us that need to bug the publishers/devs to give us stuff to give away. But appreciated :)
By djole381 (SI Elite) on Apr 12, 2012

It's OK for the ad Kres. Just please start the next competition soon as I am already starting to feel the effects of CWS (Competition Withdrawal Syndrome) XD
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 12, 2012
Kres
CWS loool. Yep yep waiting on the details. Should have em today.
By Kres (SI Elite) on Apr 12, 2012
Kres
Well guys, believed it or not, we got Crusader Kings 2 to give away again! 5 Steam copies. Who is up for it raise a hand
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Apr 12, 2012
herodotus
Ahhh, not me for obvious reasons but it's worth creating a new competition page Kres as this is one excellent title. Sure to attract some more "one time onl" members, but the more that visit the more likely they might stay.
Ps. As I said in my PM - feel free to hold a comp for EU and US-only in May/June as I will be over there and so technically a European:)
....the lengths an Aussie has to go to to get into Si comps.....D
By Gyorn (SI Core) on Apr 12, 2012
Gyorn
hero, as is just learned you're suffering from CWS. Going great lengths to get your dose of fresh bytes, maybe you should see a doctor or join the SI addiction group :/

@Kres: *lifts hand* Would prefer non Steam but im willing to suffer for a shot of greatness like this.
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on Apr 12, 2012

Im not crazy, and neither am I. I resemble that comment Gyorn:)

Just wanted to tell you all that I now have Alan Wake in my hand and I'm looking forward to play it. The game though has had some serious buggy troubles with graphics and such. I'm on a factory OC card - and AW don't like OC cards - one bit it seems.
I am downloading latest patch and keep you all informed of my experience with AW.

Once more - thanks for the price SI guys! :D
