This Week in Raptr: Community Q&As, Valve Complete Collection giveaway, caption contests

Welcome to This Week in Raptr, your weekly summary of upcoming community events, top discussions happening on, and your one-stop spot to procuring dino DNA to start your own Jurassic theme park today!

Raptr Q&As

This Thursday on the Q&A front we’ve got PopCap’s Jeff Green who’ll be taking your questions about gardening and the walking dead from 10AM to 6PM PST. Stay tuned for more details about prizes during our Raptr Q&A.

Last week’s Raptr Q&A featured Star Trek Online’s executive producer, Daniel Stahl. He discussed the future episodes of STO and just how the Romulans will take part of them, the possible additions to more clothing options, and took user suggestions for future updates. Catch up on all the logs here.

Coming soon to Raptr Q&A, we’re giving the wheel to developers of the racing stunt game Joe Danger and team members from Rusty Hearts and Lost Saga will also get a turn in the hotseat.

Swag Room contest — Valve Complete Collection
For this week’s Cleaning Out the Swag Room contest giveaway, we’ve got the Valve Complete Collection for one lucky Raptr user. Be sure to post and/or comment three times in one or more game communities you’re ranked Newbie or above in for a chance to enter!

Congrats to last week’s winner of a Sega Genesis Classics Collection pack, Dexploratio.

Caption Contest — Guild Wars 2

Our Guild Wars 2 caption contest is still going strong. Here’s one of my favorites thus far from xGenokx: Human: “Huh, so that’s where babies come from?” Asuran: “Mmhmmm.” Be sure to get your rip-roaring captions in now. Best comment as determined by the completely subjective standards of Raptr’s staff wins one of six in-game mini pets!

Last week’s  Team Fortress 2 caption contest winner was Obi-Fran Kenobi, who reminds folks why they shouldn’t drink strange things they find in other people’s lockers.

Tune in Thursday for our next Caption Contest with Tera.
