PAX Questions to me
show details 9:17 AM (6 hours ago)
Go for it! All you have to do is contact us and let us know the winners name. Send me a link to the contest as well, I am interested in seeing how it turns out.


Penny Arcade’s headquarters has recognized Front Towards Gamer as a “legitimate” video game media outlet and have given the site access to media badges. What this means is that I no longer have need for the back-up three-day pass I purchased in case the request fell through.

In celebration for this joyous milestone for the website, I’m going to give away my three-day badge to one lucky person out there that may have missed their window of opportunity. If you’re anything like me, you are a procrastinating bastard who will happily put off just about anything in the hunt for more trophies or gamerscore. Yeah, I could probably sell it outside the convention hall for a pretty penny, but I figured that “paying it forward” was the right move here; let’s keep that positive karma flowin’!

How can you qualify for the drawing for the media badge? Well, we have to make you jump through a few simple hoops. Come on, we’re not running a complete charity here.

1) Register on the forums and post in the contest thread listed here: http://fronttowardsgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?1927-Contest-Penny-Arcade-Expo-West-3-Day-Pass-Raffle!&p=15615#post15615

2) Most importantly, head over to iTunes and leave us some nice 5-star reviews on our podcasts: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/front-towards-gamer/id368387326

The drawing winner will be announced on the August 3rd episode of Front Towards Gamer Radio (episode 16). That gives you exactly one month to get your travel and lodging squared away; that’s reasonable, even if you are a dyed-in-the-wool procrastinator.

Good luck to everyone, and thanks again to the Penny Arcade Overlords; can’t wait to see you in Seattle!

    I'm being a silly goose here, I know, but what if your podcasts aren't 5-star-worthy?

    Yeah, I am a pretty terrible human being...although I did let my Mafia identification card expire last month.

    Wow, I figured there would be more people who would have signed up for this over on our site. Right now, there's only a handful of people who have registered CORRECTLY (ah, see kids, following instructions is not just for homework assignments or bomb defusals), your chances of winning this free three day pass are incredibly good.

    If I were in Vegas and knew that I had a one in 5-6 chance to win something, you'd better believe I'd put money on it. But I'm not asking for money; just a little iTunes love.

    So head on over to http://fronttowardsgamer.com/forums/...5615#post15615 , READ THE DIRECTIONS, and enter for your chance to win a free three day pass!

    Eh, I'm assuming most people have the integrity to not vote on something just because there's a chance to win. Isn't it also against Apple's terms of service to provide incentives for voting?

    And yes, he really is evil. I'd avoid this contest if I were you guys.

    Which thankfully, I'm not.

    Because then I'd be him and therefore evil.

    I have listened to the podcast and if I could give it a negative rating I would. I can not give you a five star rating because it is not something you've earned or deserve. I guess I'm out on a possible free 3 day pass.

    Shanghai Six,

    When PAX_questions said you were allowed to run a contest for your spare pass we did not intend for you to use it to falsely boost your Itunes podcast rating, it feels a little... low rent to us. I am locking this thread.
