The opportunity to win Mega Man 10 in our contest is coming to an end this Wednesday at midnight. That means you only have three days left to enter! The response so far has been amazing: in the first two days of the contest we'd already received more entries than our Mega Man 9 contest got in its entire run. You guys must really want Mega Man 10! I've been hearing some questions about how the contest will be judged, and when the winners will be announced. Also, some people have sent in entries without including their system info. I'm here to cover these concerns and more.
Judging and announcement: The contest ends Wednesday at midnight, PST. Quiz grading will then take place the following Thursday morning or early afternoon. The winners will be notified via e-mail that they've won that day. Then, the winners will be announced on the site with the final results and quiz answers probably by Sunday.
Forgotten system info: If you forgot to include what system you want Mega Man 10 for with your entry, have no concern. If you win and didn't include your system info, we will of course ask for said information when we notify you that you've won. Besides that, if you're a Wii owner you'll have to get our system info (and determine whether you live in the US or Canada). Please be attentive to the outcome if you want Mega Man 10 on the Wii, because it's coming very soon!
Release dates: Remember that Mega Man 10 is hitting the respective consoles at different dates: March 1st for the Wii, March 11th for the PS3 and March 31st for the 360. If you requested Mega Man 10 for the 360, we cannot get it to you any sooner than March 31st. Rest assured, though, that we will do everything in our power to get you the game on the day it's released. And of course, if for any unforeseen complication prohibits us from delivering the game, we will deliver you the funds to cover it (but we'd much prefer to deliver the game).
Mystery bonus prize: As we've said, of the ten winners, one will be selected to receive a mystery bonus prize depending on the answer to question 25 we like the most. This judging will not take place at the same time as the quiz grading, and I do not know the specific day the prize will be sent, but it will probably be within the week of March 1st. The bonus prize will need to be sent via mail, so if selected you will need to provide a receiving address.
As for what the mystery prize is, I don't know when we'll announce that, but probably soon. However, if you head over to WingDamage.com and get their Barrel Roll #54 podcast (should come up on Tuesday), I may have participated in said podcast and dropped some kind of information pertaining to a bonus prize. Just saying!
Anyway, the deadline is fast approaching, but you still have plenty of time to get your entries in! It's not a terribly hard quiz, honest!
