The Great Gamescom Podcast Giveaways of 2013
Gather 'round, children! Gamescom is upon us, and we've decided to use Europe's massive trade show as an excuse to shower some of you in fabulous prizes! That's right, we've teamed up with our own podcast to give away the five biggest and/or most awesome swag packages our collective closets have been hiding.

Here's how it works: Five special Gamescom episodes of the Super Joystiq Podcast are set to go up this week, hosted by the always wonderful Alexander Sliwinski. During each show, Alexander will give out a secret password – sending an email to podcast at joystiq dot com with the password as the subject will then enter you in a randomized drawing for that episode's prize.

We're going to give away a collection of Razer accessories, an Xbox 360 S Halo 4 bundle, a Tanooki-suit hoodie and even more, so subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and listen for your chance(s) to win! We'll also be posting the podcasts here as they go live, for those of you that don't like iTunes but do enjoy checking websites!

Rules: Entries must be received on or before Monday, August 26 in order to be considered valid. One entry per person per password – duplicates will be discarded. Likewise, only one password per email will be accepted! Catch-all emails containing all five passwords will be thrown into a ravine. Must be 18 years of age or older and a United States resident to win. Sorry, everywhere else!

What is Joyswag? Since we don't keep the games and merchandise we receive for review or promotional purposes, it becomes "Joyswag," which is passed along to our readers. Please note that Joyswag may be in "used" condition. All winners of Joyswag are selected randomly.
