N4G's PAX Swag Giveaway

Cat | 1400d ago
User blog

Winners: http://n4g.com/news/607740/...

You know that show What Not to Wear? Yeah, they'd probably tell you to throw away your gaming t-shirts and invest in a button-down and some slacks, and while that may be good for your next job interview it does nothing for your gamer credibility. No, we're not offering you a shopping spree, what we've got is much, much better…

A new gamer wardrobe. Well, practically.

This is the Grand Prize of PAX, a robust collection of swag gathered at PAX Prime 2010, which means it's a helluva lot of gaming t-shirts.

What do we want from you? A picture of you (yes, you!) in your worst, nastiest, oldest, grubbiest gaming shirt to prove that you most need this new wardrobe. Entrants deemed worthy by staff (read: you posted a pic of yourself in a worn out gaming shirt) will then be entered in a random drawing for the Grand Prize of Swag. First runner-up will receive a largely comparable haul, with some differences, and there's even prize bundles to be had for 3rd, 4th and 5th.

(Note: Most shirts are size L, with the occasional variation).
_____________________________
Again, HERE'S HOW TO ENTER:
1) Be an N4G member.
2) Reply to this Blog with a picture of you in your oldest, grubbiest gaming shirt. (yes, you can just link it!) Don't have an old gaming shirt? Be creative!
3) Reply with image must be posted by Thursday, September 16, 2010, 11:59 PM (PST)
4) Be willing to provide a valid mailing addy

All the usual TOU apply, contest is open to non U.S. residents, failure to claim prize after 72 hours from notification will result in a redraw for that prize. To claim prize reply to PM sent to your inbox when winners were announced on Friday, September 17th.

My pic: http://twitpic.com/2ngb9f

There's a story, of course. I'm wearing a Tubrine shirt from at least 9 years ago. My hubby (then boyfriend) won the shirt (along with a copy of Asheron's Call signed by the entire dev team) in a contest on NeenerNeener.net (an MMO blog before there were blogs existed).

We got the shirt before Asheron's Call 2 was even announced, but the art work on the back is some sort of mechanical Golem from AC2. I remember how giddy I was when I discovered the Golem in AC2 and realized it was the same thing that was on our shirt.

I've always been a huge Turbine fan (pun not intended), so when this shirt started developing holes I was really sad. I'm still trying to think of some alternate use for it.

Xulap  +   1400d ago
Is this where I'm supposed to post my picture?
If so, here it is: http://i54.tinypic.com/9k2j...
I'm pointing to a peed spot, but you can barely notice it on the picture. I think it's a mouse's pee. :)

Sadly, that's the only gaming piece of cloth I have. I've got to visit Hot Topic more often...

Edit: Oh, that's a Guitar Hero t-shirt, by the way. If you flip the picture 180 degrees, you'll see! I dunno why it came out all wrong like that...

Hey
U ppl r not even trying to win this contest,

I would have already knifed that t-shirt, thrown it on the mud, spilled tomato sauce and idk whatelse on it, but what ive seen so far is just lame, lifeless

EDIT, no offense to anyone good luck ;)

Xulap  +   1400d ago
No, man. What the hell?
That's the only gaming t-shirt I own, and I actually like it. Besides, what guarantees that I'll be one of the winners? What if I knife my shirt and then use it to wipe my poo... And I don't win? I actually still use that shirt every now and then. :(
jay2  +   1400d ago
Maybe you should consider doing this and contacting Airial or vanish to do a TV ad for their products.
andrewf91  +   1400d ago
Might as well try!
http://i53.tinypic.com/2gsl...

Supposedly the shirt I'm wearing is a Bioshock shirt when it's really suppose to be a Bioshock 2 shirt as I found out later on. It's the first oldest gaming shirt I have next to my Spy shirt from the Valve store. Thanks for the contest opportunity guys!

Hat
Nice hat dude, I'd probably enter, but I've never gotten any gaming shirts, and I'm not that creative so meh. Although, i really want that infamous 2 shirt.
MrKingofVideoGames  +   1400d ago
T Shirt
Yup, it is an "Illusion of Gaia" shirt that came free with purchase of the game (it was in a huge plastic monstrosity of a box with game and shirt packaged together.) The second pic is a close up to see that this thing is as threadbare as Linus' security blanket... http://s866.photobucket.com...

Oh yeah...
I just remembered, the free shirt was the reason I chose to get this game instead of Final Fantasy III...

WAIT! Waaaaiiiit! Hold the train! I found an old shirt!

http://i51.tinypic.com/k9vu...

It's not really all that muffed up, probably because it was unknowingly preserved at the bottom of my black hole of a closet for who knows how many years, but it is old! Please N4G, pimp my wardrobe!
