Win Persona 4 and a giant schwagton of stuff

T-shirts, art books, calendars, plush Teddies... oh, and the game

Hey kid %26ndash; want a free copy of Persona 4 for PlayStation 2? Well, of course you do! It%26rsquo;s a fantastic Japanese RPG with a wild story, great combat and a megafresh art style. It just came out, as anyone who gets publisher Atlus%26rsquo; excellent newsletter already knows (you can sign up for it at We did).

Above: The main character's Persona - Izanagi

Luckily for you, we have two copies of the game to give away. Plus, because our friends at Atlus are men and women of taste and generosity, they%26rsquo;ve also tossed us a huge pile of additional goodies to pass along to you. Naturally, we have to have a contest to see who deserves it most, but seriously, look at this haul:

TWO people will get:

Persona 4 (the game)
Teddie plushie
Japanese P4 art books (30 dollar value)
North American art book
P4 2009 calendar
Charcoal P4 t-shirt (XL)

Above: We honestly envy whoever wins this

And the Grand Prize winner will also get a special, added non-P4 prize, courtesy of GamesRadar.

So, what are we going to make you DO to get it? You%26rsquo;ve gotta make your own persona %26ndash; and we really don%26rsquo;t care if you draw it with crayons, sculpt it out of potatoes, or whatever %26ndash; then head over to the GR forums and post a picture of it inthis thread. And you have to do it by Thursday, December18, because we%26rsquo;re picking a winner first thing Friday morning. Finally, you have to live in the US. Sorry, rest of the world.

Above: Another in-game Persona for example

Your persona, for those who don%26rsquo;t know, is a demonic part of your soul %26ndash; the evil part that you don%26rsquo;t like admitting you even have %26ndash; that lives inside your mind. They have all sorts of shapes and sizes. Want your persona to look like a giant kumquat with teeth that carries a cell phone and has hamsters for feet? Go for it. Or maybe you prefer a black cat whose head is a TV or a soldier in drag who drives a jeep with bat wings instead of tires? No problem.Our only rule is no nudity %26ndash; gotta keep it clean-ish for the kids.

So %26ndash; go buy some instant potatoes and get sculpting! Or just fire up the PhotoShop. Whatever. Just do it!

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
