MyGaming Giveaways

Attention all gaming enthusiasts

If you’re keen on your gaming, there’s a fantastic website that started this year (2009) that you should know about by now. It’s goes by the domain name of www.mygaming.co.za and is packed full of news, reviews and the usual things gaming websites offer. Here’s an excerpt from their site:

MyGaming is a news, reviews and community website catering for the needs of the South African gaming community. It carries both national and international news about the latest games, consoles, PC gaming hardware and of course reviews about all of these.

'We're cool'Anyway, my point is that they’re offering some mean giveaways and hosting a Call of Duty 4 (CoD 4) competition. They are giving away over R2000 worth of prizes in a once off 20 minute CoD 4 match, R1000 in cash prizes, and two MSI G31M3 Motherboards.

The charitable gents at MyGaming are also giving away 2 copies of Killzone 2 for PS3 as well as two special-edition Killzone 2 T-shirts. Prize categories include “Most Kills”, “Most Assists”, “Most Deaths” and a “Special Knife Prize.”

You can enter this exciting competition here, or you can subscribe to their site to be kept up to date and become cool.

PS: Prizes are given to active forum members on a regular basis.

Gateway to Nintendo Week

If you’re looking for something fun and exciting to do this weekend then make your way down to the Gateway Shopping Centre in Umhlanga where Nintendo Week (Wiik :P) is currently underway.

A section of the mall has been turned into a free-for-all Wii and DS arena, showcasing some of the latest and most popular Wii titles. Visitors are encouraged to try out as many of the games as possible, including 42 all-time Wii classics that will be on offer.

Kerry Taoushiani, Marketing Manager for Core Gaming says,

“While we have been running similar exhibits in malls countrywide all year, what makes Nintendo Week different from standard promotions is that the event is highly interactive with a big sound stage and room to kick up a fuss, perform and compete with others. We are not merely showcasing the games, but encouraging everyone to get involved, test their skills and stand in line to win exciting prizes”

A variety of tournaments will be run daily, and Mario and Luigi will be making daily appearances to keep the kids well entertained.

Wii want to play
With a colourful variety of Wii titles on offer, Nintendo Week aims to demonstrate that there is a game for everyone – from family fun with Big Brain Academy to kicking it up a gear with Mario Kart Wii and even building up a sweat with Wii Fit.

Visitors can also test their “brain ages” on the DS Lite with the latest self-improvement craze, Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training.

The crowds at Gateway will also be the first to experience Wii Music – the latest innovation from Nintendo, and will be able to join a virtual band.

Times of daily events:

  • 11:00: Show folks who is the master of the Wii wheel in the daily Mario Kart Wii tournaments
  • 15:00: Remember to bring your takkies for the Wii Sports tournaments and get some good exercise
  • 16:00: Enter Gateway’s Brainiest Family, a competition for the whole family to enter as a team, and test their skills on Big Brain Academy
  • Nintendogs fans will be able to meet each other’s puppies in daily “Bark Mode” sessions.

So if the weather is kak and the beach is out this weekend go check out Nintendo Week. The Nintendo team is on stand 09:00 – 22:00 until Monday 15 December. Go to Gateway’s Promo court to catch some Nintendo action and find out what you really want for Christmas. And let me know what it’s like!
