There is a competition going on called the Golden Yoystick Awards. Although I did not really like the nominations (too many console games!) completing this survey can get you a free copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown. You can also earn an 80% discount on its succesor; XCOM: Enemy Within. Keep reading for a brief tutorial.

Now I realize there are a LOT of steps but really you can do this in a few minutes. Just keep in mind that you only need to vote for one game and then you can submit your votes!

Keep in mind that the stock is not unlimited and it is territory based. So USA could be out of keys whilst Europe still has keys left.


How to claim 80% discount on XCOM: Enemy Within

After you have completed the tutorial below you will unlock your 80% discount by completing two in-game achievements from XCOM: Enemy Unknown:
