Win A Call of Duty: Black Ops III PSN Voucher

Posted on August 18, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards


We’ve got two PSN vouchers for the upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops III beta and we are giving them away to our readers. To celebrate the beta which beings tomorrow on PlayStation 4 we want to know some of our readers favorite COD moments – singleplayer or multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s beta allows players to try out 7 different playlists, the brand new specialists and the weapons paintshop. The beta contains 3 maps which Activision describes as:

  • Hunted: This big game hunting lodge is situated beneath a waterfall in the lush mountains of Ethiopia, where rugged terrain opens up to long sightlines and a stealthy underwater pathway.
  • Combine: Set in the remote Egyptian Sahara, this vertical farming and sustainability research facility plays fast and frenetic with tight interiors, an open middle and a dangerous flank path.
  • Evac: An abandoned emergency evacuation zone atop an overgrown rooftop in the middle of Singapore’s flooded quarantine zone.

Entering this contest is simple: Send an email to BrokenJoysticksDotnet[AT]Gmail.com with your favorite COD moment! We had a contact form previously but the server doesn’t seem to be handling it all that well 🙁

The Fine Print:

1. This contest will close at 6pm EST tomorrow afternoon (around the time the PlayStation store generally updates)
2. Entrants must be over the age of 18 as COD Black Ops III is a M Rated title
3. We may republish the screen names of winners and “favorite COD moment” text entries in a future article announcing the winners
4. This contest is only open to North American residents.
5. Winners will be selected via random number generator.

The Great Broken Joysticks Holiday Giveaway Contest

Posted on December 20, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

The holidays are a great time to be a gamer, as a child you get to wait for your favorite game with anticipation, hoping that it is wrapped under the tree. As an adult you either get to be selfish and play Assassin’s Creed III for two straight days or ya know visit family. We here at Broken Joysticks might not be knee deep in games due to the annual slowdown but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to give you something. That is why we are launching the first Broken Joysticks Great Holiday Give Away.

During the next two weeks (December 24th thru January 4th) we will be giving away over 20 steam codes for popular games. Each day we’ll run at least one contest on our front-page similar to the Skyrim Giveaway from last week, picking a winner from either Facebook or Twitter!Read More

Ok, we’re officially to the end of our Skyrim giveaway contest.  MAJOR thanks go out to Bethesda for not only providing the copies of Skyrim and Dragonborn DLC, but for also giving us a shout-out on the official Elder Scrolls Twitter account.  While our site quickly tapped out under the huge and sudden influx of visitors hoping to score the game, we got the word out via our Facebook page as well as our Twitter page.

We had an influx of tweets all asking for either the full version on PC, or the DLC for the 360.  Our Twitter following more than tripled in a very short timeframe!  After counting the number of unique entries, we then used a random number generator to get our two winners.  And without further ado, the winners are….

Hearts of Iron 3: Their Finest Hour Contest

Posted on October 17, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Monty, Broken Joysticks’ official wargaming bulldog, has just secured some copies of the latest HOI 3 expansion, Their Finest Hour, to giveaway to our readers. I understand that his meticulous planning allowed him to succeed in an amphibious landing near Stockholm where, after a visit to the Vasa, he liberated some Steam codes from Paradox Interactive.

We have 7 steam codes for Their Finest Hour and 5 steam codes for The Hearts of Iron 3 Collection (which includes the base game and expansions needed to play the game). Monty also scored two copies of Crusader Kings 2. This sounds like a good excuse for a contest.

One of the new features in their Finest Hour (or at least new to HOI3) is the ability for your commanders to gain traits through combat. In order to enter our contest tell us (in the comments) what trait you deserve and why. For instance you could claim the right to be a Ranger because you are really into Lord of the Rings cosplay. The winners will be announced on Monday. You may see a full list of the leader traits after the jump.Read More

Penny Arcade Episode 3 Giveaway

Posted on July 6, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Psssst… did you know we reviewed Penny Arcade on the Precipice of Darkness: Episode 3? We enjoyed it so much we’re giving away two copies of the game today through our news articles. The first steam code for the game is below, at the end of the article. The second code will be hidden in another article later today.

This contest is a little different from the previous ones, that ran last month. To prevent bots from copying/claiming the code we’ve removed two numbers (1 – 9) in the code sequence. If you fill in the right numbers you too can play Penny Arcade Episode 3.

Steam Code: 3?HDD-G?QG9-QDFXY



Gears of War 3 Contest

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

We’ve decided to reboot our Gears of War 3 contest. In retrospect, starting such a contest in the first week of our existence was a bad call. Also, the requirements and the mountain of legalese were probably unhelpful.

Here is the new setup for the contest. We’ll give away 3 copies of Gears of War 3 once we’ve reached 500 likes on Facebook. After that number has been reached, people will have a few days to enter our drawing via our Facebook page. We will, naturally, make an announcement on the site with further details when that occurs.

The prizes will be three copies of Gears of War 3 for the Xbox 360. Two of these will be autographed by the good people at Epic Games. The only requirements for entry are that you must live in North America and you agree that we are not liable for any problems with shipping. Contrary to popular opinion, Broken Joysticks does not secretly control the US postal service. We’d also appreciate it if you were over 18, because I don’t want to receive any angry letters from outraged parents. I receive enough of those as is.

In case you’d like to know more about Gears of War 3, please check out Rae’s review for Team Xbox.


DustForce Giveaway

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

I don’t know about you, but I tend to procrastinate a lot. For instance, I’ve just started my spring cleaning. It probably won’t be finished until September.

In honor of my cleaning efforts, we’re giving away copies of the indie game DustForce, where you play as a really acrobatic janitor. There are 50 perilous levels to clean up, so I guess this counts as a hardcore janitor simulator. You can find steam codes for the game in our articles, Steam group, Facebook, or Twitter.


Jagged Alliance- Back In Action Giveaway

Posted on May 15, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

First off, I’d like to remind the winners of the Arma 2 contest to contact me about your prizes.

Second, we’ve decided to give out copies of Jagged Alliance- Back in Action. You can find the steam codes for this game hidden in our articles, Steam Group, Facebook page, or Twitter. Happy hunting!

We’d like to thank Kalypso for the copies of Jagged Alliance- Back in Action.
