Checkpoint: Social Networking Edition


I received my extra copy of Metal Gear Rising and decided to give it away via GameDealsCanada. I would also like to use it as way to raise awareness of GameDealsCanada but I don’t want to be that asshole who begs for Likes and Followers.

“Reach x followers and I’ll give out a copy of Metal Gear Rising”.

It’s no secret that I prefer Twitter but not everyone shares my preference which is why I put GameDealsCanada across multiple social networks.
