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.

It's only been a couple of weeks, I'm not sure I'm eligible being a different month and all, but I'll still be commenting here, because I have nothing better to do while I'm, you know, at work! haha!

I did ask a couple of pro's for help with my Bioshock review because I thought it was missing something. BUt none have responded after telling me they'll take a butchers! Quite gutted actually, because I'm still not happy with it, 3 re-writes later! Oh well, I'll wait until I can get it into the review comp and get you guys to tell me :)

troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
Nope, I'm not doing it for here. And most of my reviews hit the 1000 word range. I'm doing it as a passtime, and I asked for help because I couldn't put my finger on what was missing from a particular review. While I do it for fun, I am a bit of a perfectionist and believe if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. No harm in asking for help if you can't do it on your own.

I'm stuck for games to review, maybe when I get around to playing DA2 again, The Darkness 2 or when Deadly Premonition comes out later this month but untill then I'm still battling Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2 and Battlefield 3 (on 2 consoles)

Borderlands 2 wortha purchase then? I've not played the first, so I take it I'd have to play that first?
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
Borderlands 2 is great, you don't need to play the first really either, I'd wait for the GOTY edition though, all the extra DLC is a bit pricey.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
I'm waiting for the complete edition for Borderlands 2 the only reason I don't have it is I had the Ultimate Loot Chest on Pre-order from GAME but a week before release they canceled it for no reason so I don't feel like buying it now (Also never buying anything out of GAME for the foreseeable future)
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
I got the Loot Chest by walking into the store and asking if they had any left. The website only had like 30 whereas the store I went to had like 8 on display and the one I got was brought out of the backroom. I love Borderlands 2 but it is a multiplayer game... If you try to solo it often feels like you are being punished when you get knocked down after losing health you have to get a kill to get up or suffer respawn, getting a kill is hard on the higher difficulties because the enemies run away from you if you shoot them. I'm gonna grab BL2 on PS3 when it gets a full game release or the Season Pass and DLC get a serious discount or PS+ free game
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

See that is the reason I hate GAME they pull bull like that
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
To be fair the GAME website and GAME stores are technically different companies hence why they often have pricing differences. I bought a new headset because I killed my last one. It was £105 online and £112 on ShopTo but I had £65 of vouchers for the shopping centre where my store works out of, they were selling the same headset for £150 so it was barely worth using my vouchers. Unfortunately I had to buy it then because I couldn't wait the extra 4 days for delivery as it was on the Easter weekend and I really wanted to play games.

If I sat on my reviews a couple of weeks and let the hype around it die down, In about 8 weeks I predict there will only be about 2 or 3 submitted. which is a shame.

I won last week but is it still ok to put up stuff just for fun? ALthough I dunno what I'll go for lol. Got quite a few. Also would anyone object if I did a review Pirate Warriors 2? It's not out till later this year but I already got the japanese version. It's exactly the same save for the Japanese/English text.

It was never about the points tho. They're a nice incentive but I find reviewing them fun. And if I can sway people to buy games they may not otherwise

DynamiteWhyte's avatar

Robichoico - I believe that was the plan overall from Shopto. Intice people in with points, and hopefully enough people would enjoy it enough to just 'bolster' out the sites reviews so people had a second opinion when purchasing games, even when points weren't available for them to win. I'd happily read a PW2 one. No point IMO sitting on it to post up 12 reviews a year when you have motivation to do 52.

Dude, you gotta pull the spoilers! The bit about the boat, that's not for the player to know until the game reveals it. Sorry mate.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar

the boat bit is right at the start of the game , there is many spoilers i left out still plenty to find out yet with a game like this i tryed to set the scene abit to keep people interested sorry still learning lol

Nah, the boat it's self is fine. The house is supposed to be hinted, the people in the boat are nobody's. hope it helps, sorry if I come across like an asshole!

for the love of god! Stop talking about Bioshock!!! I have a backlog of about 35 unopened games and although the new one is high on the list I still (shamefully) need to get through Bioshock 2! I will go batshit crazy if the ending gets spoiled for me! haha

I might shoot for Defiance but seeing as somebody has done one for this week I'll probably wait until next week when I have more hours on it. The more I play it, the more I love it! And the more my virginity grows back.....
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
I would leave reviewing Defiance until after seeing how it ties in to the show personally, it's meant to be quite a big thing about it. I'm starting to get in to it now and it's better than my initial impressions indicated, might review it myself in a couple of weeks after the show has started.
Shoxy85's avatar

It's a shame I don't really understand 99% of it. Apparently I'm in a clan on it. I don't even know how that happened. And the servers still need a bit of TLC. I topped a chart on the big boss things (where everyone flocks to the red rectangles) and it kicked me off the server before I could see what it got me!
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Shoxy85's avatar
Shoxy85 4 years ago
It's a definite grower. I hated the beta so much and everything I hated about it has remained in the game. But it massively relies on it's online community to do some of the missions. They're near impossible unless you have other players coming to help you. I did a mission last night with about 10 players and we still struggled.
