It's awfully quiet here... That's because most of the action is over at the LITHCast Forums. Why not head on over?

LITHCast 5th Birthday Contest - Metroid: Other M Giveaway

It’s that time of year again -- July 31st! LITHCast’s Birthday. I can still remember five years ago (July 31st, 2005) back before we had a site, before the forums, before I ever went to E3, before I was at The Hylia, that I was sitting in a room with only my iSight as a mic, recording Nintendo Podcast Episode 1. Since then we have grown. We haven’t taken over the world yet, but we’re definitely pointed in that direction. And there is no more obvious fact in this world than the notion that the only reason it’s been such a fun ride is because of all of you, the listeners/users.

So, in-keeping with an old LITHCast tradition, we will be doing a contest. We’ve had a number of different contests over the years, but one thing is always certain: we give stuff away. This time, we’re giving away a copy of Metroid: Other M for Wii.


Keep your pants on, though. We won’t get it to you any earlier than the August 31st release, but you should have it a few days after that. But that aside, it should be a great game. I would be more firm in that assertion, but it was basically the only game I didn’t get to play at E3.


If you’ve been following the site recently, then you know that DSCUBED is desperate for Twitter followers. So, this year’s contest will simply involve Twitter. All you have to do is follow @dscubed on Twitter and then post the following on your Twitter to be entered into the running:

It’s LITHCast's 5th Birthday! I just followed @dscubed and retweeted this message to win a copy of Metroid: Other M.

That’s all you have to do! The contest will run until August 30th. After that, I will randomly select one winner, and we will get in touch about where to send it. Once we get all that, it will be sent out! I will have the game on the release day, so all I can guarantee is that I will ship it that day, but I can’t guarantee that you’ll have it on any specific day.

So this contest will in fact be open to anyone worldwide, however you should know that if you’re not in an NTSC region, the game won’t work on your Wii. You still can feel free to follow me, though. Haha!
