EDIT:

So far everyone seems to have specified which cart they prefer first and followed the other rules. Thanks for reading, folks, and hopefully with everyone's interest and help I can convince 72pins' team to donate carts in the future.

However, just thought of this: let's hit some milestones. I'm currently at about 150 entries. Let's hit 250 by Wednesday and I'll include a super secret related prize with each cart. If we hit more than 250, I'll have to come up with something even better than what I'm planning. I dare ya to make me spend more money, CAG! :booty:

/I'm going to regret this so much :lol:



D'oh! Seems like I forgot to include the tumblr and twitter entries for 72Pins! That puts us at around 300 entries already. I'm going to have to raise the bar to 375 because we need solid goals! :hot:

END EDIT!


Hello, everyone. I have one of each design pictured above from the awesome 72Pins.com (1 Shadow of the Colossus NES, 1 Halo NES). These cartridge designs are almost entirely for display purposes only, as the games underneath them are not changed to be based on the games of the same name, so please be aware of that. Here's how to enter (You can get multiple, up to 8, entries by doing more than one listed method). Please post your order of preference if you happen to win as well. :)

I'm kind of surprised so many of you want the Halo one over SOTC. SOTC is so much more epic and it just released that dual pack recently. You'd think that would give it a boost lol.

Best way to contact me is through CAG.

I normally wouldn't enter this because the odds are low and someone else may get more "use" out of it than ma, but I really was hoping the Halo ones would last through the new year, but they have already sold out!

That makes this my last shot, so... Here I am!

Good luck to everyone else though

Hmm, I haven't had people report any issues commenting on the blog posts before. Let me try this for myself and I'll get back to you.

Edit: It gave me the same error at first, but after I logged in at the main wordpress site and came back to comment, it asked to authorize my wordpress to provide data to Blogger, which is when it worked. Try that? If you still have issues, feel free to just send me a PM/email and I'll try to figure it out some more. However, if other people have issues commenting with wordpress and can't figure it out, I suggest trying another one of the five or so different accounts Blogger offers to make comments. I've never had an issue with my google accounts commenting *fingers crossed.*

Oh, also posting the contest on my own site for another entry. It will be on the front page of dv8CAG.com in the news in a few minutes.

Thanks so much for promoting the giveaway. I'll mark down that you get an extra entry in my entries document. :)

I like SoTC, but for some reason the artwork on these just doesn't appeal to me that much. I'd prefer the Halo one. PM would be an acceptable way to get ahold of me.

Another thing I've been considering is which game to put inside the cart. I know they come with a random game, but what would be really neat would be, say a Metal Gear Solid cart made with a Metal Gear inside or Castlevania: Symphony of the Night with Castlevania. It would just take my handy Nintendo screwdriver bit, a creative mind, and a trip to Disc Replay.

The problem I'm having with the current ones is the inability to find companion games. Okami and Katamari and SotC are truly unique games so there's nothing from the NES-era that is at all similar. For Killzone or Halo, I suppose I could do something like Hogan's Alley :D

SI
