Gears of War Giveaway – Sing it, Win it

So you haven’t played the hottest title on the Xbox 360 so far huh?  Well, here’s your chance to win the game that has communities and media everywhere foaming at the mouth.  I’ve played the title and I can safely say that Gears of War delivers on every bit of the hype driving it before release.

Gears of War

I thought I’d have some fun with this giveaway.  I hope it will carry over to the show and give the community a little humor in between.  So I introduce to you…Gears of War Idol.  Everyone has seen the commercial right?  It’s on the TV, internet and was even available to download on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Gears of War Idol is just as it sounds for the most part.  In order to win this game, all you have to do is record yourself singing the first few lines of the commercial.  If you’re reading this, you have a PC and a built in microphone or one of your own so there shouldn’t be any excuse about not being able to record a simple .wav or .mp3 file for this. 

It’s that easy.  You don’t have to be an award winning singer so don’t worry.  This is just for fun.  I’ll pick the winner and you’ll find yourself on the show…in fact, everyone who participates will be.  So if you have any issues with being heard on the show, then don’t play Gears of War Idol.

So let’s have some fun!  Record your audio and email it today!  It shouldn’t be too hard.  The problem is if you all are man or woman enough to sing without worrying about how silly you’ll sound.  Gears of War isn’t for the shy gamers so this should be easy.  Fire up your PC, head to an audio program (Sound Recorder etc), record, save and send…simple.

And don’t forget that Unscripted 360 has audio comments!  You can record your entry straight from the site and submit your comment with the audio attached.  I’m making this way too easy for you to be involved huh?  Don’t worry about how you sound…remember this is all for fun.

Gears of War Idol ends soon.  November 30.

What are the lyrics to the song?

All around me are familiar faces,
Worn out places,
Worn out faces,
Bright and early for the daily races,
Going nowhere,
Going nowhere,
Their tears are filling up their glasses,
No expression,
No expression,
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow,
No tomorrow,
No tomorrow,
And I find it kind of funny,
I find it kind of sad,
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had,
I find it hard to tell you,
I find it hard to take,
When people run in circles it’s a very very,
Mad world,
Mad world…
