Sunday Blues


While the majority of people are feeling the effects of their gaming endurance test, some brave souls have not long started. Ska Band More From Jim for example are only 6 hours into their marathon, and living Battlefield 3 on the 360 right now.

Because there are still people playing, and donations coming in, the prize draw this year will be made on TUESDAY. Keep an eye out here for further details.

Please don’t contact us for codes for The Ship. The giveaway is being made by the game’s custodians Blazing Griffin. Contact them for a code, but we would ask that you make a small donation in return, because every pound raised will release another code…

UPDATE: There has been such a rush for codes that their site has been taken down temporarily. Please check their twitter for updates and Be Patient. While you’re waiting, donate – it’ll increase your chances of getting a copy…
