UPDATE: Ignore the whole Cblog posting, per our Robot Overlord. Please go and fail within this forum post
So, it's been a while and no one has entered the contest before today, so I figured I'd make a standalone blog post about it to catch your attention (and lay down a new ground rule) since not everyone noticed the contest in this post
Since we have so much swag from PAX, Failcast is going to run a little contest. What do you win? Almost every poster from the show, a couple of demos, the Fallout 3 Survival Guide, random assorted handouts, a ton of tattoos
, and maybe some other stuff. Runner-ups may receive some left-over Battlefield Heroes posters. (We've got a bunch of beta codes too, so email us at [email protected]
if you want one of them.) What do you have to do?
There are two ways to win. The first way is to fail epically, in some way, in some form. Picture, comment, cblog, I dunno, just fail somehow in a really big way. The second is to photoshop yourself on fire
. (Failcast is not responsible for any harm you cause to yourself in the process of photoshopping an image.) We highly encourage PAX attendees to not enter so that all those other unfortunate Dtoiders can have a shot at free stuff, but if you want to enter for the fun of it, go ahead. We'll pick the best entry of the different entry methods and announce the winner on Failcast episode 17. Your deadline is Tuesday, October 14th
, when we record said episode.
New rule: please put "Failcast Swag Contest" in the title if you're making a blog post
. Otherwise, if you're trying to fail, there's a good chance that you might get unintentionally smacked by the banhammer.
