Resident Evil 5 Steam Gift Giveaway! COMPLETED!

So as I am sure everybody knows by now, the next Resident Evil game in the main series, Resident Evil 6, is due out on October 2 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and on November 25 for the PC. With the giraffe-getting-a-blowjob-logo game right around the corner, I'm sure there's plenty of people looking to get their hands on Resident Evil 5 beforehand, to get prepped for 6.

So, here's my part to help everyone get in on the Resident Evil fun, even if they can't afford it. As promotion for my site (and because I love you guys), I will be giving away a copy of Resident Evil 5 (PC) as Steam gifts to each of the three lucky winners of this giveaway!

This is for EVERYBODY. All you have to do is comment in this post (it may take up to a couple hours for comments to be approved, but it will be added)! Of course, there is also the small stipulation that you must include your Steam username, so that we can contact you to give the gift. A little flattery wouldn't hurt, either. ;D

However, there are some rules to follow. Do not post more than once to "improve" your odds -- anyone found to be commenting his/her Steam username more than once will be disqualified. In the case that you forget to add your username in your first post, you can add a second one with the username and a brief explanation of the second post. Only the username'd post will be counted.

IMPORTANT: Only Steam usernames that are at least 2 months old will be considered. This is to prevent cheating.

Giveaway ends at 6:00 PM PST (Pacific Standard) on Sept. 30, 2012. It is currently COMPLETED!

If you have any questions, I am available at randall_a on reddit. Thanks for reading!

Zoids, know as "Zoido" in Japan, is a massive franchise started by Tomy, a Japanese toy company now operating as Takara-Tomy. The original Zoids were models, much like Transformers were. They're actually pretty cool, since after you build them, you can make many of them walk around or do other cool stuff, thanks to its built-in motorization.

Perhaps the most well-known piece of the franchise is the anime (though, this is definitely arguable). The Zoids anime was successful in both Japan and the United States, garnering show slots on Toonami alongside such popular animes as Dragonball Z and Gundam.

Now these models are often seen as one of many model-building hobbies for college students and the older generation alike.
