Woooooot!!!! Congratulatations guys! :cool:



Grrrrr, I almost won. :mad: I'm really seething with jealousy, green with envy and about to take my own life.... :(

When you wear that gorgeous beanie hat, think of me. :p

LOL :D
No, seriously, congratulations to both winners. Time to party! :thumbsup:

Just be sure that the T-shirt is a Men's Large. ;)

WooHoo! I lost by one vote in the photoshop contest, hehe :)

Not going to be a sore loser though - If I didn't vote for myself (;)), I'd vote for the Kieranator, good stuff there! :cool:

I'm going to release the original 1024x768 version of my entry when I get home (posting from a cafe here)

EDIT: Scratch that, I remembered I still have the email I sent to Romeo in my gmail outbox, so here's the pic:

...and the description which was supposed to accompany it (a shame it didn't turn out that way):


Title: Grey's Anatomy

The way the grey( at least I think it's a grey?) lies on the gurney in the picture immediately reminded me of Rembrandt's classic painting "Anatomy lesson of Dr. Tulp" - Then I remembered that the same painting was used by Eidos Montreal as one of the flashing images in the DX3 teaser! So I decided to bring the ghosts of Nicholaes Tulp and his colleagues into this DX3 morgue/lab, I'm sure they would be fascinated to work on such a specimen.

When Romeo comes online maybe he can give the names of the finalists for you guys. I unfortunately don't have them all on me right now.

@Romeo: Remember I jumbled them up so it may be a bit of work to figure it out. lol, But I don't mind giving you the work :)

'twas me. I'm a little bummed - I was winning at the start and it got my hopes up, only for them to be dashed by the evil Kieranator. :(

Seriously though, congrats to Kieranator and Ihsan... great work you guys. :D

Not certain though, I don't watch this show myself, sorry.

As promised, each winner will receive an amazing Eidos Montreal/Deus Ex 3 hamper including all of the following:


Whoa. :eek: They each get the whole kit? I was thinking those things would be dispersed across a first, second, third for each category or something.

Nice haul guys.

Yup, that's why all of us in 2nd and 3rd place have arranged a friendly protest march for tomorrow morning. :mad:

http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc159/eternaltreasure/envy.gif http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc159/eternaltreasure/envy.gifWe were 2nd! :( http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc159/eternaltreasure/envy.gifhttp://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc159/eternaltreasure/envy.gifWe were 3rd! :rolleyes:

I was thinking about this. I think next time if there is such a big hamper up for grabs we may split them up. The only problem is the cost of postage. Sending large items to six locations around the world can be quite expensive ya know. ;)

And MrsP, lol at the Greys Anatomy thing. :D

And VodunLoas is right, he is from CSI. His character name is Gil Grissom :thumbsup:

31st Oct 2008, 20:35
Hehe, sorry... I don't watch CSI either. :o :D

Oh, don't worry about the contest goodies. I'm only joking anyway. ;)
I actually think it is better that a big, fat hamper goes to just one winner. :cool:

Seriously, congrats, and I'm quite a bit jealous over that shirt.

You know, Kieranator, it was I who suggested that you become a mod. Seriously. :D ;)

Ah screw it. There is no hope. I'll just hold onto my over-sized DX3 Shirt and weep in the corner.
