Join the Aliens vs. Predator Battle on The Escapist!

image

The lines between Aliens, Predators and Marines are drawn as the battle begins. Who will you team up with?

In deep space, at the last frontier of human colonization, an ancient pyramid is discovered. When archaeologists probe the pyramid's secrets, they unwittingly trigger an apocalyptic confrontation between vengeful Predators, menacing Aliens, and heavily-armed Colonial Marines. This battle is encroaching into The Escapist and threatens to destroy your very existence unless you choose a side.

For those brave enough to enter into battle, you vie for a number of different prizes. Copies of SEGA's new Aliens vs. Predator and number of different trade paperbacks from Dark Horse Comics will be given out via Twitter, while an Xbox 360 goes to the greatest warrior in each faction at the end of the bloodshed. Better yet, one lucky warrior in the winning faction has a chance to win a 40 inch HDTV!

You must be 18 years of age, have a valid Twitter account linked to your Escapist profile and be a resident of the United States in order to participate.

Swallow your fear and get ready to face your enemies. To participate, click the button below and may you get them before they get you.

Aye...ah well. Like everything EU gets forgotten every time...

Prolly not Escapists fault though...they gotta operate in terms they have been given so...

Lets do this Marines!!!!!!

If you didn't get your Twitter account yet, the first battle just went live at 10AM EST! 1 hour to attack!

You mean like the developer that made the damn game?

Ah well, I'm sure 2000AD will be running an AvP competition next week, probably get a 360 and copy of the game out of that.

Damn it! I think I would stand a rather big chance in scoring high in this!

I hate it when I can't join..

Why does America have to be the biggest bloody consumer base in the world, it's not even the biggest country.

Beat me to it, Furb.

Business as usual then. Good day.

Remember...please update your Escapist profile with your Twitter information so we can get you the extra points: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/edit

Could we not just organise one big play-off that didn't entail a competition so all of us could join in on your fun?! You spoilt little Americans.

I'm actually sad I can't chew your heads off.

If you are not a US resident but still wish to participate, please feel free but no prizes can be awarded in this instance.[1]

So you are certainly free to join in the fun.

Why do I always miss these things? Now I feel stupid. Time to get some glasses I think.

Is Twitter still required, or can I just stick my tail through your chests when I feel like it? Hehe.

No, but you'll get more points if you do have one. Every time an attack is called out, retweeting during the timer provides you a bonus attack.

That game looks terribly bland. I got the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED "AvP Classic" on Steam. And it sucked...

It's not bad that I'm dissing a game heavily advertised on the Escapist, is it?

All attacks are being called out on Twitter, so make sure your accounts are set up to follow @TheEscapistMag.

God damn it.

Though I'm not in the country eligible to win, I figured I'd join if only to show my Xenomorph support, and get a nice Aliens badge.
The rules say you can post your Escapist name on the Facebook page for 5 points, but... nobody has actually done that yet, have they?
Are you supposed to write a comment to a particular post on the main wall (I can't find anything about The Escapist), or is everybody supposed to just spam their name randomly whenever they feel like it?
(I don't actually use Facebook a whole lot, so that may very well be a stupid question.)

You can only get 5 points, and you only need to do it once. The points won't show up immediately, but will get added automatically later on - max wait would be a day, if you happened to be unlucky and post immediately after the updater runs.

ahhhhh Crap!!!! i just made a twitter account to participate when just now i noticed its for US residents only.

*head slams keyboard*

Well, I see a whole bunch of people joined the Predators Haha...
I was thinking about it...Should have now that I look back at it. I'd be the highest there at the moment. Oh well. Aliens perk my interest none the less.

Only the first day.

Wait, so anyone know the requirements to win the game?
Reeeally want to win it for the 360.
In fact, this game is the main reason I made a Twitter account.

Signed up. Saw the Twitter posts earlier (before I signed on...Team Predator, btw) but I don't get how we "attack". Do we just RT with the required bits once they say "GO"?

I did sign the FB fan-page, so I'll get my 5 points there, I imagine.

Thanks for your reply, but those were all the things I did understand already. :)
I didn't see any posts of of just names, which is what I understand we should make, so I was asking if anybody did that already.
Secondly, in my mind it would make sense to have one post on the main wall dedicated to The Escapist AVP game that people can comment on, adding their Escapist name.
If people need to create a whole new post, and can do that whenever they want (although early on is recommended), it would be harder to collect all the names, plus it would make the page look messy.
(I used the word "spam" before, but on hindsight I should have used the word "messy".)
Again, not much of a Facebook user, so excuse me if I completely misunderstand the idea.

Maybe I can...ya know, smuggle ya into the U.S. then Smuggle ya out. If your in.

OT: I have one question, do you need the game to participate in this activity? if so then I am screwed.

TraumaHound:

Okay, now I see how the "ATTACK" thing works (since it's currently active as I post this.) Can we only RT once during the attack time for the credit or do we get credit for every time we RT?

...I'd assume only once otherwise it'd be a spam-fest at Twitter.

Yay, I get to play a game so someone else can win a TV! Weee, exciting [/sarcasm]

One of these days us Europeans/Australians are going to have a HUGE MASSIVE AWESOME FUN SUPER COOL COMPETITION!, and there's going to be a prize for everyone who enters, and everyone will have lots of fun, and Americans can enter but can't win any prizes, and then we'll all laugh at the Americans who don't win anything, and, and, and...

I'm so lonely...

Can we switch between the three AvP factions to get all the badges?

It doesn't say anything against it in the rules but I wanted to make sure.
Going to try though.

Edit: we need to follow Twitter to find out when the fights are!?
I just wanted to join all of the factions to get the badges, I don't really wan't to get the twitter page just to do that.
