Picture your mittens around that.

We've told you quite a lot about Stranglehold over these last few months, hopefully creating a hungry desire within you to play the game when it's released in early September. You know it's based around the Hard Boiled film by John Woo, for starters, with the same director lending his action panache to creating the game. And you know the story revolves around Tequila, a tough cop voiced by star-of-the-movie Chow Yun-Fat.

In fact, you probably also know the Hong Kong cinema-style is the main draw; recreating balletic, cinematic gun fights with lashings of visual effects, stunts and slow motion sequences. There's even completely destroyable scenery that comes in handy when you're feeling inspirational and need to use your environment to get around, or just bash someone over the head with. So, there's all that, plus the chance to do it all again online with your friends when you're finished.

It's quite a package, and one Midway wants to celebrate by teaming up with us to give you lot some smashing goodies. Simply answer our routinely ridiculous question below and you could be in with a chance at bagging a PlayStation 3 with a copy of Stranglehold, or just a copy of the game on your choice of platform if you're one of four runners-up.

Good luck.
