After over a week of receiving amusing submissions from readers for our giveaway contest, we’ve made our decision! ’Twas pretty hard, considering that some of you really put in the effort, but in the end, we’re happy to announce that @delaredreuben will be walking away with a PS4 Starter Pack. Worth S$479, he's getting Overcooked 2 and Fifa 19 thrown in alongside a PS4 Slim. Reuben Soh won us over for (1) setting fire to food; something that happens quite a bit in Overcooked, (2) putting an Asian twist to Salt Bae, and (3) crafting an elaborately nonsensical fanfic that starts off with a Tommy Wiseau reference about why he should score the prize. Hats off to you sir — we’ll be in touch. It's not true! I did not overcook it! I did naaaht. Oh hi Mark. The darkness melted away from the sky. The rain stopped.
