If you listen to Podtoid, the thing that used to be a games podcast but is now something nightmarish, you'll know that Max Scoville and myself love Aliens and are especially impressed with Aliens: Infestation. Well, we are going to take that love to the next level with an Aliens contest!
On the next episode of Podtoid (released every Wednesday), we'll have five copies of Aliens: Infestation to give away, and each one will come with a framed lenticular picture of a Xenomorph stalking a marine. The lenticulars are very classy and something worth any Aliens fan's time, I think.
On the show, I'll share details of what the contest will be, but why not help my lazy fat ass? What kind of contest do you think we should run? Bear in mind, podcasts are audio mediums so photoshop contests are no good. Something written or recorded will work best. The person who picks the best contest entry wins a chance to enter the contest along with everybody else!
