Side-Scroller Showdown Deadline Extended

Side-Scroller Showdown Deadline Extended

THQ*ICE, the recently launched joint venture between THQ and ICE Entertainment to focus on free-to-play online games, announced that due to overwhelming positive response it will extend the deadline of the Dragonica Online “Side-Scroller Showdown.” People looking to submit their opinion now have until March 31st to register to decide which is more fun: Dragonica Online or their free-to-play MMO they’re playing now.

“We are ecstatic to see the amount of interest this campaign has generated in the free-to-play MMO space,” said Eddie Chen, CEO of THQ*ICE. “When we first started this program I said we were confident players would see that Dragonica Online offers above and beyond what any other MMO out there provides; now the numbers prove it!”

People who register and vote are eligible to receive $5 dollars in-game credit for Dragonica Online, or another game. If the participant votes for Dragonica Online they will also get an exclusive side-scroller showdown gift. Does that seem a little bit like bribery to anyone else? Doesn’t really matter to me though, as I’ll play anything to avoid playing an MMO.
