Who wants to come to PAX for FREE on BioWare's dime?

Howdy everyone. I'm BioWare's Community Communication Coordinator "Evil" Chris Priestly.

Some of you may have met me last year when we showed off Mass Effect at the Microsoft booth or when I was scarfing down cheesecake at the Factory across the street.

BioWare is going to be returning to PAX this year and we are going to be bringing on lucky contest winner with us. And what is even cooler, we're going to be paying for the whole thing. Yep, we're going to be paying to fly the winner from any major center in North America to Seattle (and back again), we're paying your accommodation in the same hotel as us (no cheap cardboard box in the alley for you!), we're providing you with an 3 day pass badge, we're giving you a Sony DvD camcorder to keep track of your memories at PAX and we're even throwing in $500 clams to let you pick up some cool swag and cover your meals.

We're calling it the "Who wants to be BioWare's Minion" contest. We're even going to give you 3 t-shirts to wear at PAX saying "I am BioWare's minion". All you have to do to enter is film yourself saying why you should be BioWare's minion and send us the video.

If you want more details, the legal stuff and all, just click over here for our contest details: http://www.bioware.com/biozone/articles/2008_07_02_minion_contest/index.html

If you've got questions, post 'em here and I'll answer them. And, as PAX gets closer, I'll be back to talk about BioWare's involvement. Get those entries in fast as the deadline for entering is July 28. :)

    hi Evil Chris

    why are you guys using system-breaking DRM on the PC version of Mass Effect?


    you guys fucking suck for doing that.

    wouldn't it be easier just to pay someone to wear a t-shirt for three days? seems like a pretty roundabout way of getting a minion.
