[This giveaway has ended] Congrats to intothere, Coletrain331, danzuke, D4m4ged, Broody19, chic fil a, Sd lightzout, anbilow, Fenring42, and ALostGrenade. Beta codes are in your ShackMessage inboxes. Thanks to all who entered!


[Original Story] The weekly Shacknews "what are you playing" post has been invaded by Locust and Thrashball enthusiasts this week. Shacknews has ten (10) early access Gears of War 3 beta codes available today and we want to get them out to our loyal readers.

Entering is simple. Reply to this WRUP post by telling us what you plan to do for the rest of the weekend. Why? Because your intricate, detailed plans might be dashed if a Gears of War 3 beta code drops in your ShackMessage box. You must qualify for the giveaway (see rules below).

Oh, and another thing... we're only running this giveaway for five hours to get codes to winners ASAP. (Ends today at 1pm PT).

Here's what the Shack Staff are playing this weekend. (Click any editor's name to visit their Twitter page. Follow Shacknews on Twitter for regular updates and contests.)

  • Garnett Lee: I have a mountain of stories to get ready for next week but I’ll also be trying to wrap up SOCOM 4, getting in a little time with the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta, and kicking sci-fi mercenary ass in Hunters: Episode One HD.

  • Alice O'Connor: I really must remember to play don't take it personally, babe, it just ain't your story, but then there's also Magicka: Vietnam, Sanctum, and Anomaly: Warzone Earth, and let's not forget the possibility of Portal 2 launching early.

  • Xav de Matos: I would like to play the Gears of War 3 beta, Splinter Cell 3DS, and Portal 2... but I'm packing and all of my systems (and PC) are in boxes.

  • Jeff Mattas: Other than doing my part to help Portal 2 release early by playing Steam indies this weekend, I’m very much looking forward to some more Crysis 2 and Motorstorm: Apocalypse.

  • Steve Watts: I've taken advantage of some of the XBLA sales, so I'll be playing Bionic Commando and Magic, and plugging away on Ghost Recon for the 3DS. I'm also seriously considering popping Portal back in for another quick go-round, in preparation for Portal the Second.

  • Ozzie Mejia: Taking it easy this weekend by playing the Stevie Nicks songs that hit Rock Band 3, before Portal 2 consumes my entire being for the foreseeable future.

Rules for entering this giveaway

          Is that the shitty Xbox Live Indie one? Really terrible that's it's easy add subtract blocks. No crafting or even mining needed. Sure it's early stage, but at least let us use the fucking mining pick you put in our hands.

          If it's a different game...ignore all that.

            Apparently you don't follow the developer's plans. Currently Chapter 1 is released, then Chapter 2 and so on. Chapter 1 is just like Minecraft Classic, just build random stuff without worrying about supplies.

        I am going to be sitting here in anticipation this whole weekend with bowls of icecream ready and Halo Reach on standby if I do not win a code. I am sure many other people could be doing the same so I set up a soft plush blanket zone to escape from reality realizing that maybe I will never earn the chance to try a very polished Gears of War 3 beta. Please make my weekend come true! I want this icecream to melt! and I want nothing to do with Halo reach!!!!!!

        Over this weekend I will be tormenting my less skilled friends on my ingenious Halo reach forge traps.Then as soon as they rage quit ill talk them into some grifball.Then at some point we'll all play black ops or battlefield 2 and own it up against other teams in rush or team tactical. Then we will all split to go have some anger management in GTA 4, nothing to violent of course. After a block of time we will all go to play Gears 1 and 2. If it is gears 2 I am prepared to be a newb with my favorite gun: the flamethrower! Now at this time we will all be very tired and probably go to kill massive amount of undead nazis (or russians,or even americans i guess if its five) in cod black ops zombies, which is one of the best parts of cod. After we die we'll be dead asleep while watching netflix over a party on xbox live. And yeah thats about it, oh except ill be dreaming about the Gears 3 beta while I sleep. RETRO LANCER HERE I COME!

Then I'm having a few friends over for a bonfire and just to hang out. Sunday morning I've got to get up bright and early since I'm volunteering at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's environmental science program from around 8:30am to 1:00pm. After that I'll have a little bit of free time before I have a family gathering that I'm supposed to go to for the rest of the day. During any free time this weekend I plan on trying to get to a 100 in Gears 2 because of the 18x XP since I got randomly reset a few months ago. Of course, all of these plans would be kinda messed up if I got a Gears 3 beta code.

        Week 9 of Bayonetta. 40 hours played in Normal, 11 in Very Easy. I started a new save to appreciate how difficult the first run through is without the various purchased techniques and accessories.

        I'll probably continue on Catherine, and continue through Doom 3 from Delta 3 onward.
