World Cup Contest: Win Dragon Age or Mass Effect 2!



Hey Dtoiders, I'm super excited about the World Cup. So to commemorate the ridiculousness of the whole thing, I'm throwing a contest! I'll give you the details in just a moment, but first: What can you win?

Prizes for this glorious soccer contest include PC copies of Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect 2, Jade Empire and Mass Effect! That's right, BioWare games! It has nothing to do with the World Cup, but that shouldn't stop you from entering!

Now here are the details you've been waiting for. What do you have to do to win one of these excellent games?



Contest 1: Photoshop a vuvuzela into a screenshot of a dramatic or otherwise hilarious video game moment.

* First Place: Dragon Age: Origins
* Second Place: Jade Empire

Contest 2: Use a drawing program (like Paint), or hand-draw your favorite video game character with a vuvuzela. Bonus points for creativity, multiple characters, and context!

* First Place: Mass Effect 2
* Second Place: Mass Effect

How to submit: Just leave your image in the comments below, tweet it to me @bluexy, or if your prefer anonymity mail it to rory[at]gamerant[dot]com!

Bonus Rules:

* US Only Shipping - Sorry internationals, boxes are expensive to ship. Still, feel free to join in on the hilarity! If there's enough international participation, I'll add a bonus prize via Steam. I mean it, I'll spend $30 for a prize if you submit internationals!
* One Prize Per Contestant - Feel free to enter for both contests as many times as you like, though!
* Contests Ends July 11 - After the World Cup is over, so is the contest! May be extended another week depending on participation.
* Rules Subject to Change - I know I'm forgetting something, but that covers the important bits I believe.

There you have it, Dtoiders! Looking forward to some amazing submissions!

Feel free to follow me on twitter, where I'll be updating everyone on the latest submissions @bluexy.

Note: Yes, I'm also running this contest on the site I edit/write for, but this is my personal contest. There is no expectation/requirement that you visit the other site. I'm just trying to give away my own stuff for free, in a fun way. Destructoid has always been my home and I couldn't not make the contest available here.
