Hey, duders! The Giant Bomb Emporium accidentally doubled up my shirt order, and Rorie said I could do whatever I want with the extras.

I've decided to hold a contest to decide who gets the shirts! The rules are simple:

  • Draw some awesome Metal Gear Scanlon fanart and post it to this thread.
  • The community's opinion will be taken into account, but I get final say in picking the winner.
  • The shirts' designs are Blue Bombduders and Black VinnCo. Both are Medium sized regular t-shirts. There can be no substitutions.
  • The contest ends after 11:59 on Friday, September 26th. That gives you two weeks to get something lookin' real nice.
  • If you live outside the contiguous 48 United States, I may ask you to chip in a bit of money to cover any extra shipping costs. It'll be reasonable.

The shirts are brand new and still in the plastic they came in


I look forward to seeing what you guys can do!

I've owned the game for over a year, and I used to hate it, but now I think I'm into it? I was on the I Love Mondays user video reel once. It was during the P4 Endurance Run. I talked about why I loved October and then interrupted myself with a fake a phone call. The P4 battle theme played, and I said something like "You're free this afternoon? Cool, let's go get some steak. We should kick it at your place afterwards." I really miss that old Sony Ericsson phone.

Edit: I forgot that the community responses weren't on I Love Mondays. Why can't I find more than one Question of the Week when I search videos? Did they all get dumped?

My favorite moment will always be the end of Jeff's Gal Gun segment where he broke down and Vinny/Drew slowly faded him out with a soulful guitar rendition of "Amazing Grace."

Also, I made the Giant Bomb symbol chat in PSO2. You don't get much more dedicated than that. The damn thing took forever to get right.

Came back to answer it myself. I should have done my research first, sorry.

How did you notice this so quickly? I figured it would probably not be seen for a long time.

I doubt it could be the same guy, but I'd be very interested in finding out.

Thank you for being honest and transparent about this decision. I've felt that this was an issue that needed to be addressed for a while, and I'm glad you've decided to handle it this way.

Saint's Row 3rd vs Asura's Wrath?!

You sick fuck.

How could I ever choose?

Oh man, I've been waiting forever to use those Jeff "Burn with me!" gifs.

@negativecero: Any sound file that would make an appropriate tone is fine! Mine are all just .mp3 or .wav files.
