Modern Combat 3

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation is the latest in Gameloft's series of high-end first person shooter titles for Android, and it's the best one yet. Just check out this awesome trailer:

Modern Combat 3 features some of the best graphics, most advanced scripting, controls, and multiplayer action you'll find on Android. The 13-mission single player campaign will keep you busy on your own, but when you're ready to take the war online, you'll have 6 different maps, 7 games modes, and up to 6-on-6 combat to keep you and your friends (or enemies, as the case may be) playing for hours.

Modern Combat 3 is available now in the Android Market.

The Prizes

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is Samsung's flagship large tablet device, powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 mobile processor:

The Tab 10.1 features:

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • 10.1" TFT LCD display
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb (via update) w/ Samsung TouchWiz UX
  • 32GB internal storage
  • Front and rear facing cameras
  • 7000mAh battery

The grand prize winner will also receive a pair of these, Etymotic mc2 in-ear headphones with (Android-friendly) in-line controls and microphone:

etymotic-m2-earphones

Etymotic Research makes the best noise-isolating earbuds in the business - and I can attest to that, I've been using some of their headphones for the last week, and I imagine while wearing them I'd scarcely be able to hear an oncoming train even if I was sitting on the tracks. The mc2's boast 35-42dB of noise isolation but still manage to deliver 85+% sound accuracy - quite impressive. Etymotic's earbuds all have user-replaceable ear filters, a fairly unique feature, so your headphones can keep sounding great for years. They're also protected by a Kevlar-reinforced cable and a 2-year factory warranty, so you can enjoy them for years. You get the headphones, 4 sets of earbud tips, replacement filters (and the tool to replace them), along with a nifty carrying case.

Finally, we'll be giving the grand prize winner and four runner-up entrants a copy of Gameloft's Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation.

How To Enter

We're keeping this one simple. Go to Gameloft's Android game store (here) and pick your favorite title (you don't need to buy anything - just browse and find your favorite). Then, in the comments section at the bottom of this post, comment with the title of the game you chose, and why (be sure to INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL IN THE EMAIL FIELD BELOW THE NAME FIELD - NOT IN THE COMMENT TEXT, we'll use it to contact the winners). Be creative, fun, or silly - we'll randomly select five winners, including one grand prize winner who will receive the Galaxy Tab 10.1, ER mc2 headphones, and a copy of the game. Four runner-ups will get copies of Modern Combat 3.

The Terms

The contest starts now, and will run until December 21st, 11:59PM PST. This is an international contest only for the Modern Combat 3 licenses (sorry guys, there was some confusion, and we made a mistake), so make sure to check the list of eligible countries to see if yours is listed. The Galaxy Tab is available only to U.S. and Canada entrants.
