Hey, you guys know EpicSteve, right? Prominent community member, former Whiskey Media intern? Well, he is currently on his way back to Afghanistan right now (not before causing a little mayhem on the Twisted Metal TNT, of course), and, as you may imagine, the internet ranges from either "downright terrible" to "this shit doesn't work AT ALL" over there. This makes it nigh impossible to purchase games, not to mention that places like Amazon don't ship games to APO/FPO boxes. The cool thing about these APO/FPO addresses is that shipping to them costs the same as it would mailing something in the United States.
Steve is over there until July, and to help the time pass a little more quickly over there for him and his fellow soldiers (about 30 dudes), the Giant Bomb community can send them some video games to play in their off-time. All games will be put into their own gaming library, where anyone can check out a game and play it. Here's how this will work:
NTSC copies of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games only.
1. PM me with the games you want to ship them and I'll give you the mailing address.
2. Pack the games (be sure to use bubble wrap! These games will be falling out of planes, after all.), check "Gift" on the small customs form at the post office (it's easy and quick to fill out, don't worry), and ship them. It also helps if you include the address in the box itself, just in case!
DO NOT WRITE GIANT BOMB ON THE BOX.
3. Once the games have actually been shipped, let me know and I'll add your name to the list below.
4. You can send the games to me and I can send them instead, though, as I said before, it will cost the same and is kind of pointless. I can only go to the post office once a week, so you shipping them yourself means the games will get there faster.
