Weekly Giveaway: Space Marine!!!!!!!!!!

For our first of many to come weekly giveaways we have THQ’s Space Marine.  As you all know I am a huge fan of the Warhammer universe.  I mean what is not to like about 7  and a half foot tall soldiers in power armor fighting the hordes of Orcs?  If you have played any of the Warhammer games before you will love Space Marine.  This is the franchises first foray into the 3rd person shoot genre and it’s easily one of my favorites.  I’d put it up there with gears of War 3.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the contest except staff members (sorry guys).  Even if you’ve won something from us before you are welcome to participate again and again.

This for a Steam copy of Space Marine.  You must have a Steam account to claim this prize.  If you don’t have a Steam account you can sign up for one here.

The rules for the contest are simple:

1.  Sign up for a TGB account.  If you already have an account continue to step 2.

2.  Like us on Facebook

3. Tell us, in this contest article, what your favorite first/third person shooter is and why or what your favorite military thriller and why.

That’s it!  No need to sell your soul, sign up for a magazine or send money via cashier check to some random person in Africa.  The contest will go from today 7/26/2012  – 8/2/2012.  The winner will be chosen at midnight.  We will announce the winner on the main page and we will email them directly.  Good luck and game on!

About the game:

Step into the armor of a relentless Space Marine and use a combination of lethal and deadly weapons to crush overwhelming alien forces. Immerse yourself in an intense and brutally violent world based on the richest science fiction fantasy ever created.

In Warhammer® 40,000® Space Marine® you are Captain Titus, a Space Marine of the Ultramarines chapter and a seasoned veteran of countless battles.

A millions-strong Ork horde has invaded an Imperial Forge World, one of the planet-sized factories where the war machines for humanity’s never ending battle for survival are created. Losing this planet is not an option, but a darker and far more evil threat is lurking large in the shadows of this world.

With an Imperial liberation fleet en-route, the Ultramarines are sent in to hold key locations until reinforcements arrive. Captain Titus and a squad of Ultramarine veterans use bolter and chainsword to take the fight to the enemies of mankind.

    Call of Duty.

    I would say my favorite, and only because I am old skool, is Castle Wolfstein, just hunting down Hitler back then and going through all those Nazi’s was a blast!

  3. MattFerrell - August 1, 2012 5:41 pm

    I enjoy Left4Dead, joining with friends in vs matches.

  4. themrfraz - July 30, 2012 11:12 am

    BioShock, because that atmosphere is still yet to be surpassed by anything else ever released. Haunting, and I love it.

    My favortie first person shooter is Metroid Prime. There was so much depth with the game that I was blown away at how beautiful the game was.

    My favorite FPS game would have to be the ArmA II: Combined Operations mod, DayZ. The mod puts players on a huge fictitious Russian island called Chernaurus, where a recent unknown virus outbreak has caused everyone but a select few, the survivors, to turn into bloodthirsty zombies. Survivors must scavenge supplies from cities and towns, eat and drink, and survive the zombie apocalypse. On your adventures you will meet other survivors, some hostile, who will try to kill you on sight or rob you, and some friendly, who can help you with your survival efforts. You can travel in groups, making you that much more dangerous. Even though it is very glitchy (It’s still in alpha), it’s focus on realism and survival is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. If you have ArmA II CO, get this mod as soon as possible.

    I have to go with COD Modern Warfare it was the FPS that brought to life more realistic combat.

    For me, it’s Borderlands. Normally, I avoid FPS games as I tend to have bad aim. But Borderlands was fun enough for me to get into and I like the fact that it helped me get slightly better with my aim. Mind you, I’m still bad at it. xD

    The first Deus Ex. Not strictly a first person shooter, but there’s plenty of shooting from a first person perspective involved. It’s hard to dial down what I like about it to a few bullet points, it’s just great as an overall package. Conspiratorial shenanigans, inventory Tetris, a great soundtrack, multiple ways to complete levels, etc.

    That’s not to say it isn’t without flaws, because it definitely has its fair share. Although, a lot of them are simply due to it being developed before certain gameplay systems were created and before technology could allow it to present itself as well as it could if it were created now. But even with its flaws and antiquated systems it still keeps its spot in my list of favorite games.

    Perfect Dark for Xbox. It didn’t hold your hand but actually made you think about how to complete the objectives.

  11. luckylady47 - July 27, 2012 1:59 am

    Favorite FPS is Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, because it has a unique gameplay style cross between 1st and 3rd person and the technical aspect of the game as far as active camoflauge, the weapon customization, and heavy emphasis on teamwork make it a rather enjoyable and addicting game. My favorite military thriller is Fear 2 due to the fact that it still has classic first person shooter elements, but it brings a whole new aspect of gameplay to it with the ‘scary’ moments that they brought into the story with Alma. It was a nice change of pace from just running and gunning to actually being frightened to turn a corner, not because enemies would be around. but due to the fact you wouldn’t know what would actually end up being there.

    well fps is a little hard i enjoyed a lot bf series and also some single player fps like metro, stalker, crisis halflife bioshock, i think i ill go for bad company 2 i enjoyed the campaign and the multilayer too until the hackers got it… on 3rd ps. well i have to say alanwake or max payne 2. i really love innovative games, great multiplayer experiences with my friends and great single players with awesome story. thats why i cant decide for so many games that i have played.

  13. kujen - July 27, 2012 1:15 am

    My favorite FPS is Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I have a lot of good memories of the multiplayer, and also the campaign…I felt such a sense of achievement when I got the Mile High Club. It is a shame that I can’t enjoy the multiplayer anymore, as the lobbies are full of hackers and nobody cares. It was IMO the last great CoD game until they started rehashing them every year. I’ll always have my memories of it though! 🙂

  14. lukestoneman - July 26, 2012 5:24 pm

    Tom Clancy: Splinter Cell. As one of the first modern FPS I played it was the first that I truly enjoyed playing, got to grips with and completed. It was my first gaming sense of achievement!

    My Favourite FP Shooter has to battlefield desert combat, the team VS bots was awesome, so much fun being able to jump into an apache and mowing down the enemy or throwing a grenade into a group of bots and watching them fly through the air LOL


Have your say
