Competition Monday: Win ShopTo Points


Welcome to Competition Monday, our new weekly competition which consists of a few ways to win. All prizes consist of the chance to win points for your account. Here is what you need to do to enter either or if you wish, both competitions.

Competition 1: Comment to Win

As you no doubt know by now, our comment to win competition gives you the chance to win a prize in exchange for posting comments using your ShopTo account.

We understand that sometimes it's easier just to leave a comment on Facebook or Twitter and continue the conversation over there. But we'd love it if you make use of our news site to comment, so this is why we love to give you all a little incentive - the chance to win 3000 points on your ShopTo account.

Each week we will look at all the comments we have received from you, our readers, and as a reward we'll be giving away 3000 points to the person who we feel has contributed the most, both in terms of comments and their contribution towards the discussions within our stories.

There are a few rules obviously. For instance, in order to qualify for the weekly prize you need to have left at least 10 comments across any of our stories within that week. These comments must also provide a certain level of contribution, i.e be on topic and be relevant to the story which you are commenting on.

Competition 2: Review of the Week

Adding to the competition above is review of the week competition.

The title explains it all really. Basically, all you need to do is choose a game to review and get writing. Once you are happy with your review then simply post it in the customer reviews section on the relevant product page. e.g if you are reviewing FIFA 13 then search for FIFA 13 on ShopTo.net and post your review under the customer review banner.

In order to make it easy for us to pick a winner please try to stick to around 500-700 words. Also, we are not really judging on spelling, paragraphs, punctuation and review length. So even if you have never written a review before and are not confident, then please try.

Once you have followed the simple instructions above then all you have to do is let us know in the comments field below what game you reviewed. We will then choose a winner based on our favourite review and post it up on the news site for everyone to see.

If you are chosen as the winner then you'll win a whopping 10,000 points for your ShopTo account.

That's it really.

We are looking forward to reading your reviews.

Might have a go at Simcity later in the week. I need a few more hours under my belt before I can properly judge it. If another earthquake hits my village of Bishop Burton between now and then, there's every chance it won't be a nice review!

Haha Bishop Burton is a real place! Watch the 'Chin Review' on YouTube. There's about 7 of them. One of them is about Bishop Burton. Best things on there!

Was planning on doing Monster Hunter but not been on it enough. Nier and Elite Beat Agents are absent so cannot review. Pirate Warriors 2 I cannot review until it's out in the UK it seems. So I went with the title that made me buy a Vita. 'New' Little King's Story http://shopto.net/video%20games/psvita/PSPVLI03-new-little-kings-story-ps-vita

I didn't want to sit on this anymore I've been making too many changes over the past few days so here it is http://www.shopto.net/video%20games/ps3/PS3HY00-hyperdimension-neptunia it's my first review ever so constructive criticism is welcome (and wanted)

@ SaiyanNox. It was a pretty decent review. It's kinda hard to review games that you have mixed feelings on I think without coming across to negative. But yeah I enjoyed it
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
I wasn't enjoying the game at first but after I got past about the 25% event the appeal of the game really started to dawn on me and now I love it
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 4 years ago
I kinda got bored with it after the first few dungeons tbh. Own the others but never really bothered with them much
Shoxy85's avatar
Shoxy85 4 years ago
Don't regret a review. It's your opinion of a game. It can never be wrong because it's how you feel about it. I'll admit I'd never even heard of it until reading your review but it does sound like a cool and unique take on something so many people seem to care so much about! It's a good effort! My review this week wont be as good as that haha
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
I actually did quit playing it after the first few dungeon but after I got to Lowee it started to pick up. Lowee is just fun like a Wii, Leanbox is serious like a Xbox and Lastation only does everything just like a PS3. XD

Thanks for the support Shoxy. Some of the gags about fanboys have made me laugh quite a few times. By far one of my favorites are the party seeing a herd of Blue Hedgehogs running out of a game company building and into a casino. (A cookie to anyone that gets that)

A review is basically an opinion. As long as you look at aspects of the game then it's all fine. Some people take reviews faaaar too seriously (especially if it has a score attached to it.) If I'm honest I've basically thrown everything out of the window. Would rather read reviews from places like Shopto where it gives the points than one with a score. Because no matter what you bring up. People will just look at the score and decide.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
That's why one of my favorite reviewers on YouTube is ZeitgeistReview since he doesn't give out scores but talks about the thing he hated and loved about the game. I also like Angry Joe but that's a discussion best left for another time

I'm a fan of Yahtzee. Although I cannot really say he's a reviewer. Just a guy who points out flaws (or sometimes gets flaws completely wrong lol)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
I've never heard of this 'Yahtzee' I'll give his vids a look

He does Zero Punctuation over on the Escapist.

The man is brilliant! He has his moments where he's clearly trying to find something controversial for the watchers, but for the most part, he is very funny. Just don't take his reviews as gospel!
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
He can be pretty entertaining, but he doesn't really review games, more rips them to shreds.
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
He gets paid to play games, and then take the piss out of flaws it has with a caricature level of stupidity. The man has my dream job! haha!

Kind of missing the reply button today. Loved all three reviews. I'm not a fan of Elder Scrolls, and it was good to read my first user review for it, liked it alot. BL2 is definitely on my radar, just waiting for a GOTY. I'd never heard of Hyperdimension Neptuna! Awesome review mate. Glad you waited to put it up, i would have had no chance! haha!

I agree, Yahtzee is brilliant. I tried listening to one of his reviews but they lose alot without the graphics on the screen, which add just as much.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Ha thanks a lot. I'm kinda liking it without the reply button since every post get shown on the ''Whats Happening'' Box (Don't think reply's ever did)
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
no, they didn't, but i really wanted to reply to all the review entries, because I read all of them! haha! The "What's happening" box is pretty awesome though

Try watching some of Angry Joe's videos the guy is a genius

It would be perfect if we got some kind of notification on our Shopto account when someone post a reply to one of our posts (Hint Hint)

I'm hoping for all of that (and an updated app with access to them) when the forums go back up. I would love to have forum access from the app on my ipad! That would be awesome!

Oh Fancy you have a Ipad while everyone one else is using there Google Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
I have a Galaxy Tab 1... but never use it any more, tablets suck
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
Believe me, alot of research was put into the ipad before I bought it. I'm a proper anti-apple guy, but it was the best solution for me. and it works a treat! It's limited, RDP isn't the greatest without mouse and keyboard, but all my blog writing is done from it with minimal effort. I love it!

i got bought a Kindle fire HD, not sure i needed a tablet but it does come in handy while i'm gaming

Tablets? You guys are too posh. I'll stick to my mobile phone...
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

I barely even use my tablet it was really just a waste its a lot more simple to just have my laptop sat next to me

I was exceptionally close to getting a kindle HD. But the bespoke Amazon OS hamstrings it too badly for my liking. for the price, it's an excellent machine, but it wasn't quite what I was after. And my phone is great, but the android browser is too damn slow!

I got my girlfriend teh Kindle Fire HD and it is a nice little machine for what she uses it for. The Internet/Reading. I've used my mums Ipad 3, and while it is a lovely machine, it's just not for me. I have a top of the range laptop, which performs better than them all, so I just lug that around wtih me if needed.

Ah, I don't have a laptop at the moment! With baby on the way, i have to get rid of my gaming machine froim the back room, so will sell it on and grab a macbook so I can still do video editing. But from twitter to kindle, my ipad is superb!

I hope we can get the reply button back soon. It's kinda annoying having to wade through so much lol. Will try and read everyone's review. Sorry if I miss it. So far we have Skyrim, Borderlands 2, Little King's Story and Hyperdimension Neptunia. Links are earlier up. Did I miss anyone?
