mass effect magazine ad

Compared to some actual problems in this forum, this is nothing, but I've been searching for a while.

Back when the first Mass Effect came out, I remember a magazine ad for it where it has the PCs looking up at the stars, but each star has a caption to the effect of "Transmission lost" or "SOS" or "Send Reinforcements" or stuff to that effect. I have been searching the net for it, and google hasn't turned anything up besides dead links. I want it because I'm in quite the ME kick right now and, if it is how I remember, I'd like to make a banner signature with this pic.

If anyone can work their interwebs magic it'd be great. Tho I've had no luck so far.

    is this the one you're looking for? I'm struggling to find it any larger, but seeing it may jog someone's memory

    the tag line was "Dilemma doesn't begin to describe it"

    under each of those blurry star lines was the message you mentioned i believe. if you run it through tineye it gives a slightly differently oriented version which is slightly clearer, but still tiny.

    Yeah thanks that's it exactly! Maybe with the tagline I can find a higher res version.

    Tho it may not work as much as I thought.

    I did a search on TinEye and it only returned one image that isn't of any use.

    When did the campaign run? I have a ton of back issues of Edge sitting right here and I'll have a flick through the relevant issues to see if it's in there if you want.

    EDIT: Ah, I only have them going back to late 08. Sorry.

    EDIT 2: A Google for "mass effect dilemma advert" turns up this thread on the first page...

    EDIT 3: Found it in a PDF on a magazine scan someone uploaded to Scribd. Bear with me and I'll upload it here.

    EDIT4: Here it is.
