Batman: Arkham City aka Batssassin's Creed meets Metroidvania

Batman: Arkham City had quite an act to follow. Rocksteady's Arkham Asylum took everyone by surprise, offering a solid action-platforming-brawler with tons of well-implemented fanservice that paid tribute to an age old franchise. And all of this from a developer with only one other little known title under its belt. Arkham Asylum was the ultimate sleeper hit.

Lord of the Rings: War in the North Snow Troll Winner!

I gotta admit I was surprised by the turnout on this first contest. It's great to see some new faces around here, as well as some fellow CAG'ers. Seriously, you guys are awesome and your support has been great.

Congrats go out to dragon290513 for winning the statue! While the battle was fierce dragon290513 came out victorious (through sheer luck). Keep your eyes peeled for it in the mail soon!

My thanks to everyone who participated; I'll definitely be doing this again sometime soon...

In fact, I'm doing it right now. Since you guys were great with the comments I'm giving out a couple Uncharted 3 DLC codes for in-game items. Don't forget this is PS3 only but anyone can win. Well, only the fastest will win. First one to comment takes the digital cake!

(PS. I may not get to emailing the winner immediately, but you'll get the codes tonight.)

Lord of the Rings: War in the North Snow Troll Giveaway

DOUBLE UPDATE: By the way, you guys should probably read the next post the contest winner... might be worth checking out.
UPDATE: Contest is over, get ready for the announcement!

Seeing as how the gaming community has been good to me the past few years, particularly, I've decided it's high time I start giving back. I can't begin to think of the countless tips I've read about and helpful comments from random CAG'ers since I joined the site oh-so many years ago. So hopefully some of them are reading this because I've got a nice freebie for commenters.

Why buy the game when you can get the swag for free?

As a side hobby to collecting video games, I often spend as much time hunting down video game promos or pre-order bonus items. Not that fancy downloadable content business, just good ol' fashioned physical items. 
I know that these are rarely ever produced in low enough quantities to be considered "collectible". I'm even aware some of these are just clever marketing promotions. Y'know what? I'm okay with that. I'm just a sucker for clever stuff.
