Get Yer COD: World At War Map Pack 2 Freebies Here!

Everyone in our studio audience will be taking one home today! And by "everyone," we mean "10 of you."

Map pack numero dos hits the tubes (read: Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network) for Call of Duty: World at War today. The four-map bundle will run you $10 (or the MS point equivalent thereof), but the fine folks at Activision would like 10 of you readers to play it for free. (At least, 10 of you that play the game on the Xbox 360.) "Two contests in one week?" you ask. "Are you guys crazy?" Yes, our collective sanity is questionable--but our commitment to providing you free stuff is rock-solid!

For your reference, here is some of the sordid business going on in this latest map pack.

  

So how can you walk away from this post with a shiny voucher for your free Xbox Live version of Map Pack 2? Simply talk amongst yourselves in the comments, and at 12pm Pacific Time tomorrow I'll randomly choose 10 of you from all the users who have replied at least once. If you need a topic to get started on, please first address the effects of escalating undead hegemony on geopolitical power dynamics in the post-war era.

NOTE: Yes, the more you post in this thread, the greater your chance of winning. Just keep it civil and tasteful, and above all, don't spam consecutive posts like a doofus. The mods will be watching this thread, so anyone who floods the comments will be dealt with in due and savage fashion. Carry on!

WINNERS!


Wow, almost 1,000 comments, huh? You guys really like free map packs. The 10 randomly selected winners are in, and here they are.


Thanks to everyone who participated!

Would if help saying that I've never actually won anything? I won a key chain from Pauly Shore in a McDonald's one time (really did) but technically I lost at life.

Man Pie, this is your lucky day. You get to heighten your chances of winning free stuff and you get to boost your post count! Keep on w/ the quality discussion.

I just spent 1000 points on the Burnout DLC so this would be awesome to win.

One time I saw Rob Zombie eating sushi. He ate my soul. Also true.

I'd love one, but I have a PS3. Why no love for my system of choice Activision?

@Pie:  But if you look and listen to it, sounds more like lightning. Other than Unreal, does any other game have a lightning gun?

Sounds swell.

Edited by Nasar7
This might just be coincidence, but this seems very me-too ish with L4D2. The nazi zombies mode was lots of fun, but now its in a swamp? New Orleans, perhaps? Hmm...

FOUR TIMES IS THE NUMBER OF TIMES I HAVE ENTERED THIS CONTEST.

what is the most effective way to kill a infected zombie dog?

I'll be absolutely shocked if Pie and Dachef don't win copies of the map pack.

There more like those mini nukes from fallout 3.

How did we get on the topic of lightning arms?  I'm late to the party.

Posted by Pazy

This completely sounds like the laziest contest imaginable, only slightly above leaving the codes outside the door and leaving them alone. But then again, the idea of being handed a free code for £6 worth of content (which I will then hand straight to my brother too save him some money) seems like a pretty good idea.

I want to say remove the head or destroy the brain. But my heart tells me to let it jump on you then snap its neck with a well timed R3.
Posted by iiNF3RNo

i want that code!

Posted by ponyslayer

Lightening arms or railguns attached to said arms?

Posted by RomeoInc

I find it strange that the Nazi Zombies mode in Call Of Duty: World At War has never been analysed to any great extent. There is definitely some underlying tones in that mode.

Posted by brocool

Hey diddle diddle

Posted by Oy

new Zombie maps!  This mode was very much under-rated (although I still haven't played L4D yet.)

(One entry for me.)

@Dachef: I really should've remembered that considering it's the only game I've the last two days. Would the grappling beam from Super Metroid count? It makes lightning come out you know.

Please, elaborate! I think I might be finding some of the same ideas in my own explorations of said topic and I'm wondering if maybe we've hit the same stroke of genius.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy??

Posted by PirateNipple

More cod maps are always a good thing!

Posted by RandomInternetUser

Wouldn't it be awesome if there were banzai imperial zombies?
