Raptr Giveaway: Valentine’s Day Poetry Slam

Rupees are red, green and blue.
Why do I always have to go save you?
All I want to do is fish
Or maybe cook up a Cucco dish.

The Hero of Time has things to do.
And unfortunately one of those things isn’t you.

So I’ll go save the world again;
Let evil fear my blade.
But princess I promise you this,
Someday I will get laid.

Do you feel the need to share your wub as you skip along the lands of Pandora? Perhaps you’re simply overwhelmed by the mushroom love from Teemo? Do you find yourself (sky)hooked on Booker and Elizabeth? In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, pen a poem of your innermost feelings for beloved (or hated) video games and/or characters, and we’ll enter you to win a game of your choice (of $60 value) or a $60 Amazon Gift Card!

Dust off your keyboard and submit your sweet or horrifying love notes in our contest post here.

Valentine’s Day Card Contest

Unsure of how to woo your Player Number 2? Impress ’em with a computer-crafted video game Valentine’s Day card for a chance to win two Raptr plushies (one for you and your Valentine…or one for each of your Valentines….)

Blitz or Thresh? by GarmasWord
Raptr member GarmasWord is learning to play the support role in League of Legends, but can’t decide whether to purchase Blitz or Thresh. Help a fellow dino out and share your thoughts on what champion is better to learn support with.

What open world games do you find yourself coming back to? by toxiclegendz2012
Can’t get enough of Fallout’s Wasteland? Or perhaps you enjoy digging through the skag piles of Pandora? What open world game(s) do you find yourself returning to?

“Faction loyalty” by GutterRatt
Horde or alliance? Which World of Warcraft faction do you proudly stand with? Or do you play on both fields? Tell us where your loyalty lies.

Fun while it lasted by Landiien
Raptr member Landiien played Final Fantasy XIV Online till he reached level 74 and just couldn’t find the will to play anymore. The constant grinding, uninteresting (but pretty) world, painfully slow combat, and crafting/melding systems just made the game feel more like work than fun. Do you share the same sentiments?
