When we were approached to do a giveaway for the new Baja video game, we were skeptical. Sure, the soundtrack is filled with plenty of relevant music, but is that an excuse to whore ourselves out?
At least that was the thinking until they invited us to the launch party and let us play the game. If you're a video game enthusiast like we are, with an affinity for racing games of the non-NASCAR or Indy Car variety, then you'll know why we're endorsing it via this prize pack. Imagine if Mario Kart merged with F-Zero and spat out a 4x4 Rally game. Like we said, if you're a video game nerd, you'll know that's a good thing. But despite the fact the game is worth our whorish efforts, we still wanted to include some music from the soundtrack. So as part of this contest, we are offering:
1. A Baja: Edge Of Control video game for PS3
2. The Hives' The Black And The White LP on vinyl
3. A Hives t-shirt
4. A Rise Against 7"
5. Say Anything's In Defense Of The Genre CD
and 6. this sweet watch from Vestal
