Guys, we’re doing another stream on Saturday, and it’s going to be fun. We’ve got Portal 2 with the Razer Hydra motion controller, Monaco, Anarchy Reigns, Chivalry, FishPoop2 (CoDBlOps2), and more. We’re doing it to raise awareness of MiniFlippingTable.com (only 6 days left!), and we’re pairing it with a raffle! We’ll be giving away copies of Awesomenauts, Shank 2, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Mass Effect 2, Toy Soldiers, The Maw, and more! We’ve also got some super rad physical items to give away thanks to our buddies/life partners at Level Up Studios including Spiritual Stone Necklaces, Coexist Bumper Stickers, Blindbox Turret Toys, and more! So on Saturday, join us live at twitch.tv/theBancast for some fun streams, and get your raffle tickets by throwing $5 at the MiniFlippingTable.com “The Raffle” perk. Tickets are on sale until 11:30pm Eastern on May 4th, so get ‘em while you can.
Everyone likes to flip tables. It’s the rawest form of expression. But it’s a bit of a faux pas to flip a full table in public. Now you don’t have to worry about that. I give you, the Mini Flipping Table. Where can you get yours? Right here. Tell your friends.
You know, things have been so crazy this month, I thought maybe this would be the first year I simply forgot to hold our annual video game pumpkin carving contest. But then we had this hurricane Sandy blow into the northeast yesterday, and while we here in Albany managed to take minimal damage from the massive storm, a lot of people on the east coast (including members of this community) have had to evacuate because their homes flooded and their property destroyed. So despite it being the night before Halloween, we’ve partnered with Level Up Studios to issue you a challenge. Submit an original video game themed pumpkin carving for this year (in the next 24 hours) and Level Up will donate $10 to the American Red Cross Relief Effort for every entry received. It’s a tight deadline I know, but I also know a lot of you guys were expecting this contest and probably carved up some winners already! And of course, we will be offering up some prizes for the top entries as well! I have no details on what those prizes will be, but this year we will do no themed categories… it’s a straight up video game themed free-for-all and our favorite entries will win some neat stuff! On top of that, Level Up will be doing a promotion as well tomorrow where all the profits of anything ordered on October 31st will be donated to the same charity… so if there is some stuff over there you’ve been eyeing up (including our latest t-shirt), tomorrow would be a great day to put in an order! Or of course if you would just like to straight up donate to the Red Cross, that would also be an amazing gesture! So there you have it. I will try to post more details here before the end of the night… including how to submit your entries! But for now, get carvin’!
