The Etrian Odyssey II MEGA-Contest we partnered with Atlus on came and went. Prizes were handed out, and good times were had. And yes, I'm totally over the jealous fit I went through over the prize load. Working at Destructoid definitely has its perks, but we're not eligible for the amazing prizes you readers get.
One of our winners, Jayson Napolitano, took issue not with his prize, but the accompanying letter. He felt that this error-filled letter might have been computer generated and impersonal. If you ask me, it's the best contest letter ever created, and knowing Atlus, intentional:
Dear CONTEST WINNER NAME HERE,
Thank you for your participation in the ETRIAN ODYSSEY II: HEROES OF LAGAARD MEGA-CONTEST!
Your entry, entry # 27,923, was deemed to be satisfactory. A team of qualified Atlus judges found its greatest qualities to be QUALITIES NOT FOUND.
We appreciate your interest in ATLUS U.S.A, INC and ETRIAN ODYSSEY II: HEROES OF LAGAARD, and hope that you continue to support future ATLUS U.S.A, INC titles, such as GAME TITLE HERE.
Enjoy your special prize. Sincerely,
Atlus A.R.A.M 011000010111010001101100011101010111 001101100001011100100110000101101101 ATLUS Advertising, Resources, and Marketing
See the real deal after the jump.
