As we return from our Christmas break, we’ve got another bunch of goodies to give away – this time not on Twitter! This week three lucky readers will win a copy of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, a matching t-shirt made by Jinx and a copy of Chris Ryan’s Medal of Honor novella.

To stand a chance of winning all you need to do is pledge your allegiance by liking our new Bit-Gamer facebook page. If you want to increase your chances then you can post a message to us as well and tell us what games you are playing at the moment, but you don't have to.

We wouldn’t ask you to do anything we wouldn’t do, so rest assured that we’re already Bit-Gamer fans and we’ve tinkering with Princess Maker 2 lately. Make of that what you will.

Bit-Gamer Competition #3
Want to win a copy of WoW: Cataclysm, a t-shirt and a Chris Ryan book?

The deadline for the competition is January 12th, but we’ll have a new competition lined up shortly after that. We also post regular ad-hoc competitions to the Bit-Gamer Twitter and Facebook accounts, so you can still grab some goodies even if you don’t win this time around.

Speaking of which, it’s time to reveal the winner of our Christmas competition! We asked you to tell us what game you are most looking forward to in a bid to win the lush Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Codex Edition. The winner was @Eugenypankov, who told us he was looking forward to The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings – but worried that he’d have to upgrade heavily before then.

Let us know your thoughts in the forums!

I totally disagree with Facebook integration into so many web pages(read=wholesale spyware you people just dont know)- I canceled my account there over privacy issues, its pretty sad for give-aways and such to be ONLY on facebook. I refuse to use facebook.

They aren't only on Facebook. They are also on Twitter, on the Competitions Page (http://competitions.bit-tech.net/) and will be on the forums and other places in the future.

I wouldn't even want WoW for free, so I won't enter. Hope someone who likes that sorta thing wins though.

I have facebook, but I wont be joining this. Face book may have recently be valued at $50,000,000,000. thats because it contains our personal information for marketing.. I will not add to this value. Dennis wants to be liked by you so it can target its marketing.

Not gona happen.

We're not targeting you for anything. I alone have the ability to access our Facebook page and I have zero interest or intent to spam you all. If I do then, because I also am a fan of the page, you can just bounce it all back to me and piss me off enough that I'll stop ;)

I wish you well on your quest. I can remember the first time I played through Baldurs Gate 2 and the Throne of Baal expansion. I sat at my PC for 16 days, one after another. Making sure I did everything. And I was sat there for many hours each day too.

Simply posting my views on the matter. Im sick of the world trying to force me onto facebook for one reason or another, If I wanted to talk to or poke you I'd far rather do it to your face. Nothing beats a proper conversation which unfortunately is slowly dying.

It isn't hard to scroll to the bottom of a page or click to post in forums. I'm not joining facebook for numerous reasons, one of them isn't "that I'm too lazy". You make fun of me posting my objection which does have some relevance, I wonder how you feel about twitter which by nature is nothing but a dedicated forum for spam

Nobody is trying to force you into doing anything mate, if you dont want to join you dont have to. Also if you wish to poke me you will have to buy me a drink first ;)

I share your views on twitter though.

Nope but Facebook does :(
Also, I suppose you've read the terms and conditions from Dennis on Bit-Tech's own "Competitions" tab.
Now tell me again they're not targeting...but without smiling.

You've got all of us in a forum here, why use twitter/facebook?
I understand you didn't want to go through emal-competitions anymore (as you've stated before) but you've got your core audience. right.. here...

Wait a sec.

We learn from these competitions here. Are they printed in the mag as well?
