Computers can be incredibly dull. Dan who puts the screenshots up has never convinced his to go paragliding, and mine won't even come to karaoke. Fortunately there is a solution: rip them apart and enclose them in a spectacular new PC case! Good thing, then, that we have teamed up with our friends at Midway to provide one of you lucky lot with the Unreal Tournament III-themed Bit-Tech PC case. Imagine reaching under the table to turn something like that on. It's enough to make your knees tremble. If they need help, you can also excite your joints with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series sound card to go with the case, and a copy of Unreal Tournament III to play.
Unreal Tournament III, of course, marks the return of Epic's premiere multiplayer first-person shooter series to the PC, and its debut on the PlayStation 3 (the latter due out here in early 2008). UT3 is based on the Unreal Engine 3, allowing you to bask in smashingly detailed visuals as you tear around the Internet using the likes of the Link Gun, Bio Rifle, Rocket Launcher and Flak Cannon to undo the machinations of the evil foreign teenagers, or perhaps pinging yourself across CTF games with the iconic Translocator. In addition to its online options, UT3 is home to a considerable single-player campaign helping you to get your head round the Necris invasion (and helping you to blow their heads apart), with new characters with enhanced abilities, and lots of "stick-time" with the game's range of new vehicles. The game also ships on PC with the Unreal Engine 3 Toolset, so you can modify and edit to your heart's content - or more likely so that other people can and you can download their best efforts.
However you choose to play it, you'll be wanting to answer the ridiculously simple question below correctly in order to win the Bit-Tech Unreal Tournament 3 PC case, a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series and a copy of the PC game, and if not that then one of our nine copies of the PC game for runners-up. Good luck.
