*CLOSED* Giveaway: The Elder Scrolls V- Skyrim

March is here! Means it’s time for another giveaway and this time it’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This is just the base game, no DLCs and it’s the PC version on Steam.

Skyrim as in my Steam inventory

I’ve had this game for about two years but have barely played it. That has everything to do with my kids playing it (non-stop for months) and nothing to do with how I feel about the game. I am looking forward to picking this game back up and fighting my first dragon!! Here’s  what the Steam store page has to say about the game.

The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

Play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want; the legendary freedom of choice, storytelling, and adventure of The Elder Scrolls is realized like never before.

Skyrim’s new game engine brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, and ancient dungeons.

Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. The new character system allows you to play any way you want and define yourself through your actions.

Battle ancient dragons like you’ve never seen. As Dragonborn, learn their secrets and harness their power for yourself.

Sounds fun, no? I have heard that you can spend 70 hours in this game and still not be ‘finished’, something I truly believe after listening to my kids play for months on end! There’s a LOT to this game. I have it for the Xbox360 but I now wish I’d asked for the PC version. Would have been a lot easier to access in a large family all fighting for TV time! Let me show you the system requirements, also taken from the Steam Store page for this game.

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows 7/Vista/XP PC (32 or 64 bit)
    • Processor: Dual Core 2.0GHz or equivalent processor
    • Memory: 2GB System RAM
    • Hard Disk Space: 6GB free HDD Space
    • Video Card: Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512 MB of RAM
    • Sound: DirectX compatible sound card
    • Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
    • Memory: 4GB System RAM
    • Video Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with 1GB of RAM (Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or higher; ATI Radeon 4890 or higher)

So, how does this giveaway work you ask?

  • You have to have Steam to play the game as I’ll be gifting the winner the game through Steam. There will be instructions in the email explaining how to download Steam in case you don’t have it already. Steam is a free download.
  • The winner will have to use a valid email address when commenting (not IN the comment itself, just in the input box you have to fill out TO comment so it’s kept private) so I can send the download link for the game. I won’t sell or give your email address to anyone, promise. If you’re signed in to WordPress when you comment make sure the email associated with your WordPress profile is a valid one that you can check.
  • You have to leave a comment on this post in order for me to enter you into a random draw to win the game.
  • Oh, and you need an internet connection to download the game.

– You don’t have to be my Steam friend in order for me to gift the game to you because Steam allows for people to send gifts to email addresses, not just through the client. If you want to add me as a Steam friend, that’s cool. Not required though.

– I will assign each person who comments a number and then enter the numbers in a Random Number Generator to determine the winner. Multiple comments from the same person won’t increase your chances of winning. In other words, if you comment 187 times you’re still only getting one entry number assigned to you.

This giveaway starts as soon as I publish this post (around 4pm CST on 3/3/14) and runs until midnight Saturday, March 08th (midnight CST). I will then use the RNG linked above to draw a winner. I’ll email the winner and if I haven’t heard from them by Monday night I’ll draw for a new winner come Tuesday (3/11/14) morning. I really don’t like announcing who’s won on here (my blog) before hearing back from the winner but will do so Monday morning if I haven’t heard from them. Sound fair?

I’m really excited for this one! Enter by commenting below and good luck!

Editing to add: GIVEAWAY IS OVER! A winner has been drawn and I’m just waiting to hear from them. :)
