WINNER OF FTL= Evil1 Contest Time shall be retired for a short while. Sorry.
Winner of Shattered Horizon was: Kyousuke Nanbu. Thanks to Evil 1's suggested method. Kyo will be contacted through sentient anal beads with robotic caterpillar legs. The code can obtained by checking books at your local library for randomly highlighted words and compiling all the words, then taking the first letter of each word and combining THAT, into a cohesive sentence.
Blargle. I'm tired. So yeah. This is the next contest. FTL, it's fracking amazing. I wrote briefly about FTL in last nights recaps, so check that out. I love it. It's why I'm so tired. Tomorrow I can blame that on Borderlands 2 and that makes me happy. I want some lumpia. Need an energy drink. Ugh.... so tired. Heres a description for FTL:
About the Game
In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It's a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions. What will you do if a heavy missile barrage shuts down your shields? Reroute all power to the engines in an attempt to escape, power up additional weapons to blow your enemy out of the sky, or take the fight to them with a boarding party? This "spaceship simulation roguelike-like" allows you to take your ship and crew on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy filled with glory and bitter defeat.
Complex Strategic Gameplay - Give orders to your crew, manage ship power distribution and choose weapon targets in the heat of battle.
Play at Your Own Speed - Pause the game mid-combat to evaluate your strategy and give orders.
Unique Lifeforms and Technology – Upgrade your ship and unlock new ones with the help of six diverse alien races.
Be the Captain You Want - Hundreds of text based encounters will force you to make tough decisions.
Randomized Galaxy - Each play-through will feature different enemies, events, and results to your decisions. No two play-throughs will be quite the same.
No Second Chances! - Permadeath means when you die, there's no coming back. The constant threat of defeat adds importance and tension to every action.
So that's that. You know what to do, but in case we have some freshies: Just tell me why I should gift this to you, make it funny, sad, whatevs, just be real yo. Contest ends Monday the 24th Good luck.

About PhilKenSebbenone of us since 9:50 PM on 04.21.2009
Formerly known as Miguel Martinez. A total piece of shit, and burning in hell now. He was almost 38 and old, and one of your former Community Managers. He will never be Andy Dixon, but thankfully he will never be Wes either. He probably hates you as well (He's lying about that). He loves the cock though. He used to run The Low(er) Tier, he podcasted (and was on PStoid, led by dudes in pants) and got into development and then fell out of it. He says he enjoys nothing (his fat ass loves tacos though), but his known interests (besides games) are: reading, cooking, dying, hiking, playing with his kids, yelling at old(er) people, collecting various urine samples, stalking Smurfee, bad MSPaint work, thinking about working out, itching his bare butthole and seeing how long he can go without smelling his finger and Batman. He loves old school cars (Chevy), football (Packers & Niners) and of course: Vidya Gamze! You can see him all over the net with the same username, but mainly over at The Takeout.
His favorite games as a wee lass were: SMB3, Gunstar Heroes, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, Doom/Quake, Excitebike, Anything from Sierra/Lucasarts and MK. Now days he barely has times for games. Keen on TBS and Roguelikes still though (Spelunky ftw!). The replayability makes his dick hard. He also is known to be playing FPS online and headshotting your ass. He's always down to game with anyone, so feel free to hit him up on whatever you see I'm on. He's been on Dtoid quite awhile now (almost 10+ years) and has been involved in numerous off the radar things like contests, recaps, Community Managing, fucking dogs and spreading his AIDS. You could find him lurking mainly in the forums (fucking RIP), or on Communitoid, but yeah. Now he's a simple qpost whore. He also checks for spam and spreads his love here and there in cblogs and the fp. He loves you sick bastards. In a sexy non-sexual way. Mainly sexual. You ever need help, or an ear to vent to, DM him.
He is also on that thar Tweetarr @MikeMcPhil. Feel free to hit him up, He is always down to chat or lend an ear to someone in need. Or he'll send you some horrific or weird memes. Your choice.
