And the Chivalry Giveaway Contest Winners Are...


In case you missed, we hosted an event last Friday and had held a competition for free copies of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare on Steam. They were asked to submit screenshots from the race to #GamingOwl on Twitter.

They are now eligible to join in on today's broadcast (May 29 '13), where we'll be streaming the game and playing it for the first time. It'll be a good time.

Day One: The Last of Us


Date: Friday, June 14th, 2013 [Convert]
Live Broadcast: GamingOwl TV

Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, lives in one of the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run by what's left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price. Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie. As they trek across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors. As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this new world. At its core, The Last of Us is about the bond that forms between Joel and Ellie - it is the story of love, loyalty, and redemption.
