Contest: make fun of the Persona 2 fan translator guy

By Heath | October 9, 2008 at 11:43 pm

In light of fan translation attention whore Gemini deciding to punish his message board users by not finishing his 99 per cent complete patch, we’re giving the boy exactly what he wants: more attention. Hence, we are proud to announce our newest contest. In this, contestants will take screenshots from any Persona game and write funny captions or make a photoshopped version of their entry with the intent of making fun of this whole mess. You can win cool game-related crap from Japan or a snazzy Persona 4 Social Link Pack. Details and examples below:

1) Go find any screenshot from any Persona game. Use your favorite game sites (also, sorry, RPG Land doesn’t have any real backlog of screens from the first two Persona games), Google Image Search, or whatever. Some images on RPG Land are located here, here, here, and here, for a few possible starting points in your search.

2) Find one and doctor it. Do whatever you want, so long as it’s still obviously from a Persona game and still makes fun of Gemini’s high-level wussiness. Add dialogue, internet memes, or even just send along a caption that you think is fitting and funny. Whatever the RPG Land staff thinks is deserving of victory, wins.

3) Email your pieces of genius to contest@rpgland.com. If you win, we’ll email you back asking for an address to which we should send your prize(s). Limit 5 entries per contestant. Yes, you could potentially win both prizes.

Here are two examples:
You could take this:

…and make it into this:
(Yes, my ‘shopping skills are null, but still!)

Or take this:

…and go comic-style with it like this:

1) A Persona 4 Social Link Expansion Pack, which will be sent to you after it ships in December.


2) Cool crap from Japan. For this prize, we grab 4,000 yen (roughly $40) and buy you anything you want, subject to availabilty, from a Japanese game shop. It could be a sweet import game, could be a neat figurine you’d like, could be a poster, could be anything. Whatever you want, within 4,000 yen. And then we ship it to you.

The “Top Winner” will select which of these two prizes he or she wants, and the “Second Place Winner” will receive the other item.

Why is a website with no advertisements (and therefore, no income) putting its own yen on the line and giving out prizes in such a manner? Because we care. About internet drama.
