A few reminders…and a free download code for one lucky community writer!
1. You know we're in the middle of a massive Bitmob Giveaway right now, don't you? Yup…to celebrate our two-year anniversary, we're giving away a ton of free games and gaming swag. Entering can be as simple as commenting or Facebook "liking" a Bitmob story, but we're reserving some prizes for our community writers, too. See here for more details.
2. We're looking for a couple of part-time volunteer editors to help us out each week. Want to join the staff, get some experience, and get that much closer to being a part of this industry? First, you must pass this test….
3. Community writers: If you need a topic to write about for the Giveaway, then consider participating in this month’s Bitmob Writing Challenge, Crossover Appeal. Both new and longtime Bitmobbers write for this community prompt, and this time they are analyzing the similarities between two games from different genres. You can read the official rules by following this link.
4. Community writers again: If you happen to be interested in writing about the Fallout: New Vegas add-on pack Honest Hearts but haven't downloaded it yet, let us know in the comments below. We have an extra Xbox Live code, but no one on staff is available to cover this expansion right now. We figured we might as well let one of you guys have a crack at it…if you promise you'll actually write about it here on Bitmob!
