Hey kid – want a free copy of Persona 4 for PlayStation 2? Well, of course you do! It’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’ excellent newsletter already knows (you can sign up for it at www.atlus.com/faithful. We did).

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’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)
Japanese P4 art books (30 dollar value)
North American art book
P4 2009 calendar
Charcoal P4 t-shirt (XL)

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’ve gotta make your own persona – and we really don’t care if you draw it with crayons, sculpt it out of potatoes, or whatever – then head over to the GR forums and post a picture of it in this thread. And you have to do it by Thursday, December 18, because we’re picking a winner first thing Friday morning. Finally, you have to live in the US. Sorry, rest of the world.

Your persona, for those who don’t know, is a demonic part of your soul – the evil part that you don’t like admitting you even have – 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 – gotta keep it clean-ish for the kids.
So – go buy some instant potatoes and get sculpting! Or just fire up the PhotoShop. Whatever. Just do it!
