This is our second week of our month long give away of Mario Kart 8! Last week we held our first contest and left it open for anyone to enter multiple times. Over the course of a week, you guys managed to enter the contest 3851 times! That’s insane! You’re probably wondering who won, right? That honor goes to Sean Corcoran! Give Sean a huge congratulations on winning and let’s get rolling on this week’s contest!

The same rules apply this week as last week, since we’re giving away a $60 gift card, anyone in the world can enter. You’ll also have multiple entries per day and if you want even more entries, you can get your friends to sign up for the contest by using the special link generated by the contest widget. Let’s see if we can’t break that first record this week by getting over 4k entries in the contest this week! C’mon, you can do it!

    Not sure if error/mistake or I’m just early on this, but the entry form says contest has not started yet and isn’t taking entries.
    Thanks for putting this together!

    • It’ll start in just a bit. I put the post up ahead of the contest to alert people and announce the winner. πŸ™‚

  • LukeMM95

    Oh I finally get to use my facebook account for something.

  • Donaald

    I can’t reply to comments either, I’m a sad troll right now

  • jjbredesen

  • Phoenix Maybe

  • bistricky

  • jjbredesen

    The reply button is still here!, just not here….

    The script for the reply form is there, but i can’t find a way to make it be not hidden, at least not a way, that the server allows…getting bad request errors :/

    • jjbredesen



      • Donaald

        At least it works now.

        • jjbredesen

          Yeah, i guess something was getting updated, but now comments work without all the reverse engineering xD

  • And so it begins…

  • jjbredesen

    Well, this is getting really annoying :/

  • Oh hey, the reply button is gone.

    • DavidEssex

      No doubt!

  • jjbredesen

    Yeah :/

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Congratulations Sean COrcoran! Have fun with Mario Kart 8 πŸ˜€

  • SinkyChan

    even if i don’t win this, i love the fact that everyone has an opportunity to enter. makes it harder, but also those who “never win anything” get a chance. it’s happened to me before, i could happen to you guys too haha.

    good luck to all, tho

  • Arthur Jarret

    I made a twitter account just to enter this competition. Kinda defeats the purpose of spreading the website’s reputation since I have no friends…
    Too lazy to make a facebook account, though – so I’ll just hope to win with a 33% disadvantage.

  • Tehlildevil


  • DK745

    Awesome!!!! free Mario Kart is the best Mario Kart. plus the free Club Nintendo game too! Mario Kart 8 looks insanely fun. I can’t wait.

    Good luck to everyone in the next 3 drawings!

  • XxFyrus

    Was going to buy this the day of release for me and my 5 year old cousin phoenix whose father just passed away. But I lost my job monday so that isn’t going to happen now

    • Michael Ocampo

      Sorry for your guys’ loss…

    • Dominicruz

  • WarioForever

    So, you must have a facebook or twitter to join the contest, or can you sign up with gmail?

  • I know I won’t win, but might as well give it a shot…! πŸ˜€

    • DK745

      that was my attitude last time too. it worked out haha.

  • Michael Ocampo

    Do you have to be 18 or older to enter or will I be left in the dust this race?

  • ARGH I thought I had more time for chances for one more set of entries!!

  • Perfecto-Geek
