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!

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.

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.

Never fear, Corsair and games.on.net are here with a competition to help you perk up those ailing load times.
We’ve two 240GB Corsair Neutron SSD’s to give away — which you may remember from our recent hardware review as being “a couple of very potent” drives with “blistering sequential performance”.

Bohemia Interactive and games.on.net have teamed up to give away ten copies — PC copies, naturally — of Carrier Command: Gaea Mission to ten lucky games.on.net readers. Gaea Mission is a remake of the original 1988 game of the same name, which you may remember if you used to own an Atari, Amiga or maybe even a Commodore 64. Now, 24 years on Bohemia have remade the strategy classic for modern sensibilities, and they want you to have it.
When 2K contacted us and asked us if we’d like to send five lucky games.on.net readers to the top-secret launch party for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, we said “Yes. Yes, we would.” I gotta tell you though, this thing is pretty top-secret. They won’t even tell me where it is, and I’m the one organising to send you guys there. Wherever it is. What a mystery!
You may remember that last month we did a thorough hardware review of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti?

Well, now we’re putting our money where your mouth is, so to speak — and giving one away.
