Y’all know that here at GON we’re pretty big fans of Heroes of the Storm. It’s fun, fast, and doesn’t make you want to throw your computer off a cliff in rage when you lose.
But up until now, you just had to take our word for it instead of playing it for yourself. All that is about to change,
2015 is nearly upon us, and what better way to celebrate the new year than by hiding away on your computer and playing thousands of hours of World of Warcraft? That’s right — there is no better way. To help you along on this quest we’ve stolen* a bunch of stuff from Blizzard’s headquarters, including Collectors Editions that you can’t buy anymore, and an exclusive Warlords of Draenor standee.
All good things must come to an end, and so it is that we approach the end of 2014 — a year of ups and downs, lefts and rights, and more importantly, loads and loads of games.
As is tradition, we’re putting together a little survey for games.on.net’s beautiful readers to share with us which games they think were the best (and the worst!) this year. And just for taking part, you could win yourself a brand new PS4!
The people behind deal sites like Catch of the Day and Scoopon have decided to branch into digital content — music, ebooks, and most of all games. They’ve just launched their beta of their new site Didgio, which is where they’ll be advertising their deals on just those sort of delicious digital things.
To celebrate the launch, they’ve given us a bunch of codes for some great games like Dishonored, Rogue Legacy and Surgeon Simulator to give away to you! For literally free. Nothing.
If you’re into PC gaming then there’s no escaping the gravitational pull of Star Citizen, the upcoming magnum opus of Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts. Part single-player adventure, part persistent MMO, part rig-melting-beauty, Star Citizen is looking really good (click here to learn more about that).
But how do you get in? Well, you could just buy your way in at the official site of course. But thanks to one very generous games.on.net reader — who has asked to remain anonymous — we’ve got six ships and starting packages to give away to six other lucky games.on.net readers.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is now out, and NVIDIA have partnered up with Ubisoft to make it the best-looking Splinter Cell on PC ever. What does this mean for you? It means you need a new graphics card, of course!
Luckily, Gigabyte and games.on.net have renewed our sacred blood-bond, and in doing so secured not one, not two, but three 4GB GeForce GTX 760 graphics cards — all for you. That’s right!
Suffering from Poor Headset-itis? Constantly being surprised in every game of Battlefield 3 because your headset accidentally started picking up Classic FM instead of telling you there was a tank rumbling towards you? Well, suffer no longer, because Creative and games.on.net have teamed up to give away 19 Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D RAGE headsets — one every day, for the next 19 days.
To celebrate this week’s launch of the fourth and final piece of Borderlands 2 DLC (for now, at least), games.on.net have managed to get our hands on two very special Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest editions. These have been sold out since May last year, so you can’t get them anywhere else — but we’re going to give two of them away to you for nothing.
Thanks to BenQ, we’re giving away three — count ‘em, three — brand-new BenQ RL2450H RTS gaming monitors to our adorable gaming audience. These monitors were custom-made in accordance with the direction from some of South Korea’s top StarCraft II players, resulting in an experience powered by a dynamic contrast booster to adjust levels on the fly and keep you at maximum alertness.

games.on.net and 2K have teamed up to give away two incredibly mad prizes, right here on this very website. That’s right — to celebrate the launch of BioShock Infinite, we’re giving away two awesome prize packs to get you up and running with all things BioShock in the proper PC gaming fashion. Check this out…
Hey, you there! Do you like shooting aliens? In the bowels of spaceships and the dark corridors of abandoned buildings? Of course you do. What about also being those aliens in multiplayer and shredding the faces of your friends? You can do that also, in Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is heading our way on February 12. To celebrate, SEGA have given us 10 Collectors Editions of the game on PC to give away, and even thrown in a bunch of shirts for our lucky winners as well.
