Ys I and II chronicles contest winners
Greetings Sugarfiends!

It’s time to announce the winners of our Ys I & II Chronicles Contest!

Last night, at the start of the wolfing hour, the Gamesugar crew ascended to the peak of a nearby mountain, placing the entries into a ceremonial bowl atop a stone pedestal – along with offerings to the forgotten Gods of old.

It wasn’t long before the clouds swirled overhead, and the faint sound of thunder grew in the distance until we were convinced that the nearing beat bore remarkable resemblance to the guitar riff from Iron Maiden’s Run to the Hills. Suddenly bolts of lightning struck the stone, forever etching three names into the splintered remains.

Congratulations to Radical Hair, Elatia-Rashiad Langford and Charles Sabers – though both Elatia-Rashiad and Charles Sabers need to drop me a line via jamie[at]gamesugar[dot]net since we don’t have your email addresses.

Your Sonic Colors Coloring Contest Winners!

Sonic Colors Coloring Contest Winners
I want to thank everyone that took up our artistic challenge and sent in an impressive amount of spins on Sonic.

Bitey the Contest Hedgehog dropped in to give us a hand judging entries, and after many long hours it has been decided that Maria P is the winner of Sonic Colors for the Wii, and Peter Kimball is the winner of Sonic Colors for the DS. Maria’s attention to detail really seemed to win the judges over, while Peter’s complete subversion of the original image was hard to ignore, and a little frightening.

You can catch both winning submissions after the break, as well as all the entries on our Facebook page.

Gamesugar’s Sonic Colors Coloring Contest!

Sonic Colors Coloring Contest
One of my most pleasant surprises in the last week has been the discovery that overall, I enjoy playing Sonic’s latest outing on the Wii, which I’ll likely give more words to shortly.

In the meantime however, we seem to be in possession of an extra copy of Sonic Colors for both the Wii and the DS courtesy of Sega, and the Holiday spirit compels us to offer them to you, assuming you’re up for an artistic challenge that is. Our favorite guest artist, Kyatt, has created a hedgehog masterpiece very much in need of a splash of color, so we need you to color Sonic in, the full image can be gotten right here.

We’ll leave it to you to decide whether you want to use computer paint, or color Sonic the old fashioned way if you have a scanner at your disposal.

The important part is that you write either Wii or DS on your entry to let us know which copy you’re after, and that you email your entry to by 11:59 pm est on Sunday December 12, 2010.

Well draw and announce two winners the following week.

Good luck!

Ys: The Oath in Felghana
As always I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to enter our contest. If you didn’t all drop by we’d have to go find something else to do, and we’d really rather continue doing this instead.

This morning I entered everyone’s names into our new RandomTron 5000, which harnessed the power of science to give us our five winners.

Congratulations to Diego R., Eric, Radical Hair, Eden, and Skrams – codes have been dispatched to your in-boxes.

The RandomTron has spoken.

Gamesugar Contest – Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Contest Ys The Oath in Felghana
I’m confident that no other title on the PSP this year, or perhaps ever, has offered up the endurance run that is Xseed’s latest dose of Falcom’s Ys series to hit North America. I’m also certain that the Falcom faithful wasted no time in devouring the release. But while I’m grinding away on some form of a review for the game, it seemed a noble cause to try and spread the Ys agenda with a giveaway in the meantime.

Courtesy of Xseed Games, we have a chance to give five of you a digital download copy of Ys: The Oath in Felghana, pretty sweet right?

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling us why you need a copy by 11:59 pm est on Sunday November 21, 2010.

Curious about the game after hearing some talk on the street? Did you happen to run out of blood to sell right when it released? All reasons are welcome here, because we’ll draw five names at random the following Monday afternoon and a winner could be you.

Ys Seven PSA & Giveaway

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , , , , — Jamie Love @ 7:53 pm

Ys Seven
Ys Seven hits store shelves tomorrow for your PSP, sporting a standard UMD release as well as an LCE that XSEED has stuffed with Falcom goodness. Being that I consider this year a pretty dreadful one for producing an RPG worth the investment of time and money, I’ve got plenty of expectations riding on this release.

But it occurs to me that maybe some of you don’t know what either a Ys or a Falcom is, and are left wondering if you should bother finding out. With that in mind, I’ve got my mitts on a couple of codes for a digital download of the title courtesy of Xseed Games – 2 to be exact.

So here’s the deal, drop me a line in the comment section of this post and tell me why you need this game to restore your faith in the RPG by Thursday August 19th at 11:59 pm est. I’ll draw two winners randomly from the comments on Friday and two of you can check the game out for yourself free of charge – and if you come back and tell me what you think, I’d probably dig that.

And finally, since I mentioned the LCE, you can catch two scans from the artbook that comes with that after the break.
