Halo Helljumper #1 is the start of a new series that explores the realm of Human/Covenant conflict through the eyes of the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs).
Gears of War Sourcebook features the intriguing backstory of Dominic penned by Joshua Ortega and an expressive art gallery, all in one.
You can enter for both of these comics, or whichever one suits your tastes. One note: Generosity may be rewarded with a mystery bonus item (as it was last week!). So if you aren't really into Gears of War, play only for the Halo comic - or vice versa. But if you really do love both worlds, both comics could be your prize.
Here's how to enter:
Simply post a comment on this page. Say whatever is on your mind as long as it's not an ad or profane and INCLUDE WHICH COMIC YOU ARE PLAYING FOR, OR BOTH (and play only for what you'll really enjoy!). Be sure to read the Sweepstakes Rules to ensure you are eligible to win and don't get disqualified by double-posting or forgetting to provide an e-mail address.
You may also want to white list this domain; we've had several would-be winners lose out because they never responded to their prize notification! If you use TypeKey/TypePad, be sure your e-mail address will be shared. No e-mail address, no prize. (Don't worry, no one else will see it - and we'll only use it to contact you if you win.)
Note that unless you're an authenticated poster who has been active on the site and marked as trusted, your comment will NOT appear immediately. It will go into a queue for me to approve, which I'll do several times a day (except the first weekend, where comments may not be approved until sometime late on Sunday). Do NOT double-post. We'll extend the entry period for this until 5:01 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, August 13 to ensure you have plenty of time to enter and verify your entry was posted.
We also sometimes give away unannounced Instant Win prizes. Here are a few tips since this can happen at any time. (I'm pulling the next one together now!) 1) Follow Gamewatcher on Twitter. Before we post the next Free Stuff Bonus - Instant Win, we'll give you a fair warning tweet. 2) Subscribe to our RSS feed and set it to check for updates frequently.
We continue to stock up on cool goodies for Free Stuff Friday - and we will keep doing so as long as there's enough response, even if we continue to lose money on this site. So tell your friends about this! Hey, if we get bigger, so will the prizes that YOU could win!
While you're at it, post comments wherever you see something interesting. Also, if you get a game code you don't need or have some other cool game-related prize you want to donate, we'd be grateful (we pay for most of this stuff ourselves).
Check back each Friday to see what's next.
