Contest: Win Shank 2 (XBLA)!

Well, looky what we have here. The wonderful folks over at Klei Entertainment (@Klei) were kind enough to give us three Xbox Live Arcade codes for Shank 2 for us to pass along to you, our dear listeners and readers. If you haven’t heard my thoughts on the game yet from VGH #42, I’ve gone ahead and embedded a video version below. How convenient is that?!?


We’re trying out Rafflecopter this time around, in hopes of simplifying the process of running the giveaway so let us know if you run into any weirdness with it. There are a number of ways to enter, so scroll down to the widget below and get to it! (Please make sure you use your real info so that we can contact you if you win.)

(We were having trouble with the giveaway widget displaying properly, but it should be all ironed out now. Drop us a comment if you hit any snags.)


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Though not officially a part of the giveaway entry process, we’d love you to pieces if you’d also subscribe to our YouTube Channel and/or Add us to your circles on Google+ too!

The contest will conclude Sunday at midnight so that we can announce the winners when we record next week’s show on Monday. If you’re a PS3-only kinda guy or gal, we’re sorry you have to sit this round out, but hopefully we’ll have something for you next time around!

    alright I’d like to enter… if only it would load for me.

    I’ll be back in a few minutes to double check

    • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

      It looks like it’s working now. If you can’t get entered, let me know.

         got in… not sure if it was a one time problem or not.. we’ll see in the rest of the days.

    Uh-oh, the widget is not loading…

    • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

      It looks like it’s working now. If you can’t get entered, let me know.

        All I see is the words “a Rafflecopter giveaway”, but no widget for some reason.

        • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

          Hmm, yeah, I noticed that too. It seems intermittent though. Give it a couple refreshes and see if it shows up. My apologize for the inconvenience. There’s 5 days left to enter, so that’s good.

    Thanks for the Contest Hope I win!

    Still not loading for me.  Guess I’ll try again in the evening.

    • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

      It didn’t load for me until the third time I loaded the page just now. Sorry for all the hassle.

      • http://twitter.com/incphi incphi

        Don’t know if it’s due to disabling the offending plugin, but rafflecopter now loads everytime for me. Thanks!

        • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

          Glad to hear it!

  • http://kclose3.com/blog kacey3

    Just an FYI, I had to  refresh the page upwards of 10 times to get the widget to show up.

    • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

      Hrm…. it’s taken me a few times when I’ve tried lately. It sure simplifies entry, collection, and picking a winner, but if it’s going to be flaky like this all the time, I don’t know if I can use it again next time.

  • randomthinker

     10 or 12 refreshes in, I’m giving up.  Maybe I’ll try again later.

    • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

      Really, that many?!? Damn, I’m really sorry. It loaded for me on the first go when I came to the page just now. If you try again later and it still doesn’t work, let me know. Sorry for all the headache.

      • randomthinker

        I decided to try latest IE browser instead of my go-to Firefox and it worked on the first try.  I went back to FF, disabled all my addons, and still no go.  Not sure what the exact problem is, but my advice to those having trouble is try it in IE.

        btw, thanks for the contest.  I absolutely loved the first Shank.

        • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

          Actually, there was apparently a conflict between the Rafflecopter widget and our site’s plugin that displayed social sharing buttons on our posts (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). I disabled that plugin and the giveaway widget seems to load every time now. I’ll just leave it off for the time being.

          Thanks for bearing with us!

    if it helps this is the error messages I get when it doesn’t load.

    • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

      Thanks. It seems like it must just be a load issue on Rafflecopter’s end. Unfortunately, I think I’m just going to have to live with it since we’re already knee deep in entries. I think I’ll look around at other solutions for next time though.

         ok that makes sense.. there’s another contest page with the same problem. Must be a busy time of the year.

        • http://vghangover.com/ Matt Kernan

          Can you link me to that other contest page? If it’s also using Rafflecopter, I’d be curious to check it out.

          • Anonymous

            sure.. http://fyre.it/NYY

            and in the comment i link to yet another page that is using rafflecopter.. but oddly enough Metalman’s page has never not loaded for me.
