    3000th Post Giveaway

    Hey everyone it's been 3 years since I've joined Game Podunk and I thought for my 3000th post I've decided to have a giveaway for you guys. You guys have been awesome and took care of me when I needed it the most. Lended me your hands for guidance. We've been through ups and downs and provided each other comfort. It's been a great ride so far and hope to keep that momentum going. This is actually the first giveaway I've ever done so I wanted to make it special for you guys. Feel free to ask any questions and comment. Game Podunk is the home for the gamers. I hope to stay in this home as long as I can. Follow: @TKtheknight RT or Tweet whichever you like: https://twitter.com/TKtheknight/status/576445000742871040 *Remember to post your entries. More entries and more chances to win. Entries Ludo-2x Jason-2x Cobra-3x Venom-2x Marcus-2x Liz-3x Kezins-3x mr.me-3x Shin-3x barrel-1x
  9. It's been a few months since I did a proper giveaway (tossing unused bundle keys at you doesn't count) since I haven't really had the means, but I'm back with something akin to a vengeance and offering up the chance for one lucky Podunker to win the game JumpJet Rex on Steam! JumpJet Rex is a fun and challenging sidescroller developed and published by TreeFortress Games, where you guide a "T-Rex with freakin' jet boots!" (their quote, but it's the perfect description) through a handful of levels collecting coins and passing through rings to unlock the level's exit. It's in Early Access right now so it's not totally finished, but the gameplay mechanics are sound and the levels on display are a lot of fun, so if the game looks like something you'd like to play (check it out on the Steam store in the link at the beginning of this paragraph) then keep reading to find out how to enter! HOW TO ENTER See, told you you'd find out how. Anyway, to enter yourself in this here drawing, simply post in this thread and tell me what your favorite game with dinosaurs in it is. It doesn't have to be a game that focuses solely on dinosaurs, just one in which they happen to appear in some form (so yes, Chrono Trigger counts) even if it's not a major part of the game. If you can't think of any, your favorite game with dragons will also be acceptable. But of course, before you go make that post, have a look at the next section... IMPORTANT THINGS/TIMING/ETC. -Contest is for one (1) copy of the game on Steam. -The contest will be closed to new entries on Monday, February 2 at 6:00 PM Eastern Time. Any entries made after that time won't be counted. I should be around to pick a winner shortly after that time, and the winner will be notified by PM on the forums. (I'll also post the winner here, of course.) -I'll need to add the winner on Steam (if we're not already friends) since the game is in my inventory. I don't suspect that'll be an issue for anyone, but I'm putting it here anyway. -The contest is open to everyone (including staff members, obviously), however, if you are a new member, you must have made an introduction thread in the New Members forum before posting in this thread. If you post your intro after entering here or don't post one at all, your entry won't be counted. At least pretend you're not just here to get a free game, 'kay? -Not that this is really that big a deal, but for the sake of thoroughness, it should be noted this contest is in no way conducted or endorsed by Game Podunk or TreeFortress Games. And...I think that's it! If I remember anything else important, I'll make a big, easy to notice post detailing the change, but everything should be covered. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, otherwise, start getting those entries in, and good luck!
  10. So...you all know the drill by now. I have Steam keys I don't want or need, and you're gonna help me get rid of them. By taking them! For free! But before I get everyone too excited, let me back up for a minute and put this here: RULES -To ask for a Steam key you need to have made 10+ posts anywhere on the forum, including an introduction post in the New Members area. For those who might just be joining, take a look around! You'll probably find that you'll end up making more than 10 posts by the time you're done exploring. -On that note, if a staff member finds your posts to be too spammy, they won't count. -Just so there's no confusion, staff members are eligible! Don't be shy! And...I think that's all I wanted to do as far as rules. Now on to the gamez! GAMES If you see a "(x2)" by something it just means I have two keys for it. It's just so there's less confusion if someone has asked for a game and then you see it's still on the list, it means I had more than one. [check back later!] As usual, just post here and ask for something!
  11. Contest is closed! Winner has been announced! I can do giveaways too. So, Abyss Odyssey is on Midweek Madness on Steam this week, but 50% may not be a big enough discount for some people. No, some people may be waiting for 75% off. But what if you could get it for 100% off? Here's your chance! So how do you enter for this wonderful chance at winningness? Keep reading! HOW TO ENTER: Since Abyss Odyssey has a pretty distinct art style, I thought it would make sense to keep to that topic. So, for an entry into the contest, simply post and tell us what game's art/visual style you like the most, and why! You can be as detailed as you want, really, but the point is, just tell us a game that you thought looked pretty darn neat and why it spoke to you. And now for the fun part... QUALIFICATIONS, TIMING, AND SO FORTH: -Contest is for one (1) copy of the game on Steam -You must have made an introduction thread in the New Members forum. -The giveaway will be open until Saturday, October 18 at 11:59 PM EST, and I'll pick the winner on Sunday! -the winner will need to PM me his/her Steam name or e-mail address so I can send them the gift, as it's in my Steam inventory. -Assuming we're not already friends on Steam. And...that's pretty much it for that section. But wait, there's more! Since I'm such a nice person (according to myself!) no one is a not-winner in this giveaway! After I announce the winner of the grand prize of Abyss Odyssey, I'll post a list of games I have extra Steam keys for in the spoiler below, and anyone who entered the contest is eligible to ask for one (1) of those games! What games will I give out? You'll have to wait and see! Heck, some of them might even be better than the grand prize, but that's a matter of opinion. Games for not-winners are in this post because if I have the list in two places I'll inevitably forget to update one of them. So remember, even if you don't win Abyss Odyssey, you'll still get a consolation prize! So what are you waiting for? Get to talking about your favorite art styles in games and get your entry in before Saturday night! And of course, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Good luck! -Disclaimer: This contest is in no way conducted or endorsed by GamePodunk.com, it's just me, Venom, doing my thing, so any issues should be taken up with me.
  12. I'm giving away Dishonored GOTY (PS3) on my blog. http://kezins.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/2/dishonored-game-of-the-year-edition-ps3-giveaway
  13. Who wants to win a PS4?! Well um yeah just another PS4 contest I found and share. Good luck everyone! refer link
  14. I haven't given away anything in a while, so figured I'd go through some codes in my stash and I'm giving away a download code for Star Trek: Into Darkness. I can't tell you if the movie is any good because I haven't seen it. Lol. I generally use these codes for iTunes, but the Ultra Violet downloads work for a variety of supported devices. Just tell me if you prefer old school Star Trek (Shatner), kinda old school Trek (Picard) or if the new stuff does it for you. I'll use a random number generator to select a winner on 12/10/13. This contest is open to any registered Game Podunk member who is old enough to legally watch a PG-13 film. Troll comments and one liner comments will be excluded from the contest. I reserve the right to decide what a troll comment is. Winner will receive code via PM.

    Tomb Raider PC Giveaway

    http://www.gamersbook.com/scene/giveaways/tomb-raider-giveaway/ I got this from BigandTasty on GDD. Good luck to all that enters. Not sure if the retweet and sharing on fb is a requirement. I only retweeted. Let us know if it is a requirement if anyone figures it out.
  16. Developer: Hidden Path Entertainment/Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Studios Platform: PC Release Date: April 9th, 2013 Age of Empires has gone through a good number of games by now, including a spin-off or two (Age of Mythology, anyone?), but it hasn't really touched on its roots at all. That's changed now with the release of Age of Empires II HD on Steam this week. It boasts adding new features and a nice little coat of HD paint, but are they actually worthwhile additions to spend $20 on? I'll be honest- I've never played an Age of Empires game before. I did play (the fantastic) Age of Mythology quite extensively when I was younger, but that's a whole other diamond in the strategy game mine. The Age of Empires series, particularly the first 3 games, are simple to the core yet still incredibly fun to play. You try your hardest to take out the enemy, which can be AI bots, other players online, or a mix of the two. You build hordes of units to first collect resources for your soon-to-be mighty kingdom, and then either smash, diplomatically ally with, or sneak in a victory with your wonder against your opponents. There's tons of units, buildings, and civilizations to play as. Also, there are plenty of map choices, with randomization being the most fun option of course. I can definitely see why everyone and their pet horny toad seems to love this game, as I do too now! This new HD edition comes with some new and some old extra tidbits of course. Firstly, the Conquerors expansion pack is included, which basically adds to every aspect of the game. Next up is the general modernization of the game. It now runs on modern versions of Windows with no problems, has widescreen support, support for resolutions up to 1920x1080, and even support for multiple monitors. Oh! Who could forget the "HD" tag too? The lighting is improved apparently and the textures look a bit better. It's not awfully much but overall it is definitely much prettier to look at. Steam Workshop is included with the game to help making downloading or uploading maps, campaigns, and mods for the game loads easier than it was in the days of the 90s and early 2000s. I'm glad more games are using Steam Workshop, and this seems like a great canidate for it. At the cost of this comes a few things that did end up annoying me a bit. To start with, the graphics themselves haven't seen much of a "HD" change as to be expected by the title. It still looks great for a late 90s game, but an actual HD overhaul would've been great. The resolution also seemingly can't be changed, as it takes whatever your desktop resolution is. With this being an expanded version of an older game, I'd expect it to at least let you change what resolution you want the game at, but this is just a small nuisance really. I'd also like to say that the multiplayer is absolute gold in this game. There's a new system in place just for the HD version, and while I'm not sure how it differs from the original multiplayer system, it is certainly quite stable, if a bit laggy. Playing with a fellow GP buddy (Ludono), we had a cubic kilometer of fun in the few games we played. Each game takes multiple hours to finish usually, though it is possible to save and re-load games you've played with others luckily. The experiences we had were both ridiculous and awesome at the same time (have YOU ever seen massive armies of Spanish conquistadores plowing their way through anything in their way? I bet not!). There was only one time when we weren't really enjoying the game, and that was when we teamed up against 6 A.I. opponents who promptly ganged up on me early on in the game, forcing us to quit early and start anew. This was completely due to the randomization of the map though I think, as my buddy was on the opposite side of the fairly large map. However, every other moment of our time spent in the multiplayer portion of the game was very fun and we really enjoyed bashing each other's brains out in one game and then teaming up to fight fiercesome A.I. opponents the next. Anything goes in a game of tactics and while Age of Empires II HD isn't overly heavy on it, how you win (or don't!) is up to you. Is Age of Empires II HD still a worthwhile addition to the very prestigious series it's a part of? Definitely! The new additions might not be that huge, but they serve their purpose well for making the game actually playable on modern computers. The game is a classic by far, and while it may not be the most HD-realistic, ultra-modern portrayal of combat in the Middle Ages, it's still an incredibly fun one. Check it out here if you're interested: http://store.steampo...com/app/221380/ I give this game a: 9/10 Want to win a copy of the game? Register (if you haven't already) and comment below telling me your favorite strategy game of all time- or, if you don't have one, tell me your favorite ancient (let's say, pre-1500 A.D.) civilization! Contest ends Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Get entered now to win this great game before it's too late!

  19. So, I found two giveaways for Painkiller: Hell & Damnation (Steam) today. Since it's a new game and I know at least someone here (Rex) might be interested in it as well, I decided to share them. Enjoy, and good luck! http://www.onlysp.com/2012/10/28/giveaway-win-a-code-for-painkiller-hell-and-damnation-on-steam/ And.... http://www.inserttoken.net/713/painkiller-hell-damnation-giveaway/
  20. Developer: Behaviour Interactive Publisher: 505 Games Platform: PSN/XBLA Release Date: October 10, 2012 ESRB: T Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is the tale of a bear. He was previously made fun of by the other bears in his prior debut, Naughty Bear (of course), and well he got mad. He did some things. Some things his psychiatrist would probably disapprove of. This is a tale of what happened after he did those things. That same mean crowd of bears not only hate him now, but they went on a vacation and didn't invite him to join them (of course)! How cruel of those bears. Now Naughty is angry once more, and this time he has a lot of new fun ways to.......deal with his enemies. I'll admit- I haven't played the first game. I had actually been very interested in it for a while, but after seeing the very negative reviews, I lost interest. With the new game, I feared more of the same, but it seems that Behaviour Interactive has crafted a better, possibly even meatier (as a downloadable title at that), game than the previous one. The gameplay of Panic in Paradise centers around you, Naughty Bear, traveling around a large map of one of the many locations on "Paradise Island", and well, being naughty towards other bears. This is shown through either scaring or killing the other bears in that map. There are many, MANY, different ways to kill the bears, but unfortunately the only way you can scare the bears is to do a creepy shout of sorts. I do wish there was another way to scare bears, as it is necessary if you want to get the highest score possible. Speaking of that, there is a nice little score system in place in this game. Leaderboards and "Naughty Cups" encourage you to try and get the highest score that you can. You can gain far more score from what I like to call "psychological bear torture" instead of just stabbing every bear you see with an umbrella. You also gain a small amount of score from destroying the objects sitting around the island. There are four objectives on each mission; kill each target bear in a specified way, and complete three optional secondary objectives. On very few missions in the game was I able to complete all four of these objectives, so luckily you only need to do the first one (which isn't TOO hard as is). There are 36 missions in the game through 11 different locations, so the game isn't low on content at all. You also may want to go back through some missions like I did to try and improve your score, which adds a bit of fun and replayability to the game. One other fantastic aspect of this game that really adds to the replayability and fun is the unique item customization and leveling system. By stealing the costumes of bears, you can then purchase them in the store for coins, which you get for doing pretty much anything in this game. To be able to purchase weapons, you have to find them in the missions and gain an "ultra-kill" (a kill while a bear is distracted) with it. Each piece of clothing and each weapon gives you different stats that can affect your playstyle in different ways. For example, if you wear gladiator armor, you can't sprint at all but you will be so heavily armored it will take the enemy bears a long time to get your health down halfway, let alone even kill you. By wearing new clothing and a weapon, you can level each one up individually until it is maxed out. This gives XP towards your total XP level for Naughty Bear himself. Personally I love this system of not only customization but also the leveling mechanic. It just adds a whole lot of originality to a game genre that could be very dull. The first Naughty Bear game didn't have incredibly impressive graphics, and neither does this game, but at least it does improve upon the original's. Good lighting and semi-detailed environments make the game look very nice on the eyes. However, one major gripe I had with the graphics was that the dark levels were VERY dark. There is lighting on every level of course, but some levels had dark corners of the map (on levels that take place at night this was very prevalent) where items or destroyable objects may have been, but I couldn't see much at all in those dark places so I couldn't do anything with those items or objects. It was frustrating, but thankfully it was only really bad on one location: Greasy's Garage. Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is a fun game that has a few weak points but overall nothing major that breaks the game like the last one had (I heard the camera was atrocious, and in PiP it's fine). For $15, there's a lot of content and fun to be had if you can mind the somewhat repetitiveness of the game and its dark humor. It's not a game for everyone, but the newest Naughty Bear installment is a good one finally. I give this game a score of: 7.25/10 Pros +Lots of customization. +The ability to scare or kill bears however you like- it's your choice! +36 missions, all of which take a good amount of time to complete. +A very neat leveling system. Cons -The game can get repetitive after a while. -Lighting makes it hard to see in some areas, one in particular. -Only one way to scare bears while there is plenty of ways to kill them. -No multiplayer, even though the first game had it, which is odd. But wait, there's more! That's right! As you can see from the title, I'm giving a XBLA copy of the game away to one lucky reader! All you have to do is comment below telling me the naughtiest way you would deal with Naughty Bear himself....without getting caught by him of course! The winner will be randomly selected on Friday, October 19. I should close the entries sometime late at night PDT, and then draw a winner shortly after. Good luck, and have fun!
  21. Free games are always awesome! For those interested in snapping a freebie, GOG is currently offering Realms of Arkania 1+2 (Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny and Realms of Arkania 2: Star Trail) for free if you fill out a short survey (which will also help GOG become an even better site). All the survey is composed of is a few questions and the requirement of your e-mail address. A code for your free copy of Realms of Arkania 1+2 will arrive in your e-mail inbox sometime in the next week. If you already own the games, the code is giftable -- so feel free to offer it to a friend or trade it in that case! This offer ends on September 17th at 9:59 AM GMT. So don't procrastinate on getting this survey done -- especially if you're a fan of free games and classic RPGs.
  22. "Thirty Flights of Love"......now what exactly does that mean? I'm not too sure really, and I doubt any of you reading are either. I could truly care less actually! That's not what this is about. ....or is it? Confusion, espionage, backstabbery (I hope that's a word), good-heists-gone-wrong; Any of these words or phrases could be used to describe this game, but I'll just use a basic one: adventure. This game is an adventure with cheeky, modern-looking Quake II engine graphics, catchy music, and a confusing story presented to you in a confusing way. That's all good though, as this is a game that relies on confusion and no dialogue or UI to present an interesting and even funny at times short story to the player. As I said, this game really does go out of the way to be confusing. Honestly, it does! I even went back and played through with developer commentary on as I was curious to why the developers, Blendo Games, did some things, and it answered many of my questions which was nice. The game plays out to you with no instructions or tasks given to you at all. You basically just have to aimlessly find your way through the game, though it IS done in a linear manner, which solves any problems of not knowing where to go. Not just the game's progression but also its story is confusing. At times you seem to be just about to accomplish something or are in serious trouble, but then it suddenly goes to another scene. It's a unique and interesting mechanic that is heavily used in the game, and works well. I personally liked it a lot, although some people may feel that without a definite conclusion to events the game's story is garbage. I won't delve into any details of the game's story, but just know that it will surprise you and may get different emotions out of you....depending on how you take it. I personally sort of kidded around the whole game and that made it very enjoyable for me but I can see how someone may just think it's stupid if they take it seriously. Graphics-wise, I have no clue at all how this game looks so good! It runs on the Quake II engine yet has moderately pretty graphics, so there must have been some extra modifications done to the engine I guess. Anyway, everything looks nice and crisp, and as with Blendo Games' last game like this, Gravity Bone, everything looks bright and colorful. The music is suave and fitting for such a game. Overall, I'm sure that I can definitely recommend this game to someone, but it's definitely not for everyone. The $5 price point is a little high in my opinion, but if it were a bit lower I probably feel more positive about the game. That and the length are my only two major problems with it I think. I give this game a: 7.5/10 It's a tough game to recommend because of how unique it is honestly. If you don't like short or weird games, you may want to stay away. However, if you want a nice little experience that may just make your day a little more joyful, get this! A sale may be best unless the price drops, but otherwise if you're willing to take a chance with it the game will reward you with a good time. It's entertaining and fun, and that's what games should be! __________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you Brendon from Blendo Games not only for the review copy, but also for the two Steam copies to give away!

  23. Hey, sorry I haven't really been posting much at all on here lately! I've been really busy, and a tad lazy. ;D You know how that is. *rolls eyes* Well, I just thought I'd let everyone know that Rockstar Games is giving away FREE Steam copies of Midnight Club 2 to anyone that joins their Rockstar Games Steam group! The announcement was made here: http://steamcommunit...078427175199696 And the group is here: http://steamcommunit...s/rockstargames The game has multiplayer and if you're wary of the notice on the Steam store page that says "Not compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7", to my knowledge there is a patch out there that fixes that. So.....if there's enough people here who want to do it, maybe we can get a MC2 get-together going! Also, as a slight warning- you need at least 1 purchase, gift redemption, key redemption, or anything like that on your Steam account to get the free copy of Midnight Club 2. That's pretty much anything that doesn't have a "Free" or "Free To Play" tag on Steam. Another warning I might add- you have to join by May 15th, 2012, to be eligible (so this is a 5-day notice), and the copies should be sent out around the 29th. Enjoy!
  24. Yeah, not really sure what's up with the title. Must have been a malfunction of the regular giveaway post thread(s). Well, on with the giveaway: So, I've been stalkerishly (if that's a word) following the development of this game called "Gettysburg: Armored Warfare". Okay, well not really, but I was anticipating the release. So, when the game came out last week, I tried my hardest to get a Steam key for it (because I'm a cheapo who A. Doesn't like buying games if I don't have to and B. Just spent almost $40 on games a week or two ago). Anyway, I somehow ended up with THREE keys, so I took one for myself and gave the second to a friend. Well, this little third key needs a home. I feel like Game Podunk has done me only good in the short time that I've been here, so I'd like to give back a bit, even if it's small like a $10 game I got for free and want to share. You can read more about the game here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/200630 How To Win: Tell me the most hilarious gaming experience you've ever had, and the best one chosen by me will win. That's it. The key will be given via PM unless you want to add me on Steam and be my Steam buddy or something.....and maybe play the game you won with me. If you don't know how to redeem a Steam key, I can tell you how, just ask. This giveaway is open to all members of Game Podunk. I'm not part of the Game Podunk staff and therefore they may take this down at any notice if they feel it violates the rules of some sort (though I certainly hope they don't). This will end at 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, April 8, 2012. The key will be given out most likely the next day in the afternoon/early evening. So, let the odds ever be in your favor! P.S. If this is in the wrong section mods, feel free to move it (and please let me know for if I ever do another giveaway).
