Win a year's subscription to EVE Online

Josh Augustine at

EVE Online is a crazy place. People get suicide-bombed for being rich. Other players throw competitive tournaments for in-game bribes. The developers are just as insane: driving boats, hanging out with the President of Iceland, and launching replica EVE pods into space.

It's one of the most interesting communities in PC gaming today, but it's also intimidating. So we're going to help you get started.

And if you know anything about kids, you know that they want the new shiny thing, and there are plenty of shiny new things in these pet codes we're giving away. Read on to see how you can win.

We have ten codes for Crusader Kings 2 to give away to our most devious readers. You'll need a ruthless streak if you're going to keep the throne in this expansive medieval strategy game.

The trailer above provides a glimpse of the nefarious practices needed to keep your pawns in all the right places.

All you have to do to win a code is answer the following question in the comments. We'll pick out our ten favourites next week.

World of Warcraft is seven, free stuff for all players

Henry Winchester at

If World of Warcraft were an Indian child, it would have just reached the age of criminal responsibility. This is a round-about way of saying that World of Warcraft is seven years old. To celebrate the game being legally responsible for its actions - if it were an Indian child - developers and publishers Blizzard are giving away a “Celebration Package” item, according to their official blog and reported by our chums at CVG.

The item consists of a few fireworks, a “feat of strength” added to your achievements, a visual only tabard and a 7% bonus to experience and reputation gains while active. To get the package, you’ll need to log in between now and 3 December. "It’s been a truly incredible seven years, and we’d like to thank you all for joining us for yet another fantastic year," say Blizzard, adding a request that players "please observe all goblin and gnome fire hazard warnings and celebrate responsibly."

EU Giveaway: win a copy of Sengoku

Owen Hill at

Don't be scared. Rich is weird-looking but harmless. Promise.

Anyway, enough about oddballs. We have ten copies of Sengoku to give away! It's all thanks to the generous bunch at Paradox Interactive.

Tim Stone recently wrote a Sengoku preview for us. Nothing explains the character-driven strategy game better than this quote: "I might have been an incestuous cradle-snatcher with a patchy military track record and no allies, but I saved and quit feeling faintly elated. Sengoku is plainly a very strange game. If you’re growing a little weary of the Total War formula but find most Paradox games too dense and intimidating, this is definitely one to keep an eye on."

We're giving away 1,000 goodie bags for side scrolling hack and slash MMO Dragonica, to celebrate the release of their expansion, New Origin. Each one is full of useful items, including the aforementioned magic beans, although these ones double your experience rather than growing a giant beanstalk full of angry giants, which is much more useful.
