Gamersyde Contest: Outland

Gamersyde Contest: Outland

Thanks to Ubisoft, we can propose to you an exclusive contest to win 5 XBLA codes to download Outland. If you are not quite sure yet if you are interested, make sure you check out our full review here. Be careful though, the French side is also part of the competition so it will be difficult. Details inside!

To be one of the five winners of this Gamersyde Contest, we are going to ask you to make a fantastic drawing representing the main character of the game and your favorite site, Gamersyde obviously. You can use a simple pen if you feel like a true cartoonist, use Paint and do something a bit more naive, and even use more professional softwares as long as it's a personal creation. We do not want you to take some artwork on the Internet and use Photoshop. It has to be something you do from scratch.

How do I participate?

You simply have to post your drawing in this thread.

Who can play?

Anyone whose membership is at least 15 days old.


The contest will end on May 4 at noon, Paris time.

Good luck!

Ooh, very cool, but isn't the main character very...not much of anything?

Well it's part of the difficulty I guess. But of course, you also need to create a scenery that is similar to the game's atmosphere, and include Gamersyde in it. You can also create a more detailed main character if you like, provided he does not feel out of place with a Master Chief Armor or a cape. ^^

Save me one, and give me 2 days, I will make a badass art by hand!!

Wow, that really is a competition! Not like "Which of these games is a Ubisoft game? A. Super Mario Brothers. B. Halo. C. Outland." (Anyone from the UK reading that should be having a Cybernet flashback right about now, lol!)

We've even gone further on the French side (like asking people to make a Portal 2/Gamersyde cake) but unfortunately we can't do it on the English side when the games we propose are not downloadable games.

Great job Korndog!

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
