Despite numerous submissions, there has not been three winners yet. The contest will remain open until such time, or August 31, whichever comes first. If there are not three clear winners, then an executive decision will be made. Get your submissions in. You have nothing to lose, just a whole lot of SWAG to gain! We’ve even added new SWAG to the pile!
SWAG, or Stuff We All Get, is often the prized possession of those that attend the yearly mayhem known as E3. Lucky (and incredibly tired) attendees walk away from the show with an extra suitcase full of knick-knacks, trinkets, dodads and trifles. Games are plastered on to all forms of odd ties-in, F3AR water bottles, Bethesda Softworks zip-up hoodies, Global Agenda buttons, SOE hipster hats, Marvel Super Hero Squad Online playing cards. You name it, someone has done it.
I’m not gloating about all of the awesome kitsch I picked up. I am trying to get you pumped for it. Why? Because we at Lore Hound are giving it all away! Seriously, watch the video above if you don’t believe me. I’ll wait for you after the jump.
Done? Excellent. The scavenger hunt is straightforward. You must locate my thick black glasses in each of of the E3 2010 videos (links below). Upon spotting my spectacles note the timestamp and location of the glasses. Jot down all of the times and locations, then e-mail the list over to admin_at_lorehound_dot_com (expanded to combat SPAM) with the Subject as E3 2010: The Contest. The first three readers to do so correctly will win a subset of the pictured swag (below).
Be warned, you’ll need superb Where’s Waldo and Highlights skills. The glasses are incredibly well hidden or only in the frame for a few seconds during some videos!

I entered when the competition first began, and it’s annoying because I really want to win! The problem is I’m not sure if I got them all right, because of the low quality on some of the videos. The 3 I’m unsure of are Heroes of 3 kingdoms, LoTRO, and Marvel super hero squad. With Ho3K I’m unsure if I’m just clutching at straws because I couldn’t find the actual glasses, and the latter two I’m not sure if I’m merely mistaking something random for the glasses. Anyway, I guess I’ll find out later on if I’m a winner =D or a big fat loser =[
Either way it was a creative and fun competition, even if stressful at times! =P
