Sonic the Hedgehog Contest Now Open - Get your MS Paint Out!

by PacoDG

Sega, kind enough to give us here at The Rally 5 copies of Sonic the Hedgehog on Xbox Live Arcade for you. Here is how to get it! Take Sonic and put him in another Xbox 360 game. This can be a full title or arcade game. Scour here at the Rally for screenshots, or just do a Google image search, however you want to find the screens, do it (Note: If you find an image that is watermarked, points will not be taken off). Next, take a picture of Sonic and put him in the game screenshot you just got however you see fit, add rings for bonus points. I did quick entry of my own as an example using Sonic in Crackdown, I know you can do better:

The Winnar

Here goes all the official mumbo jumbo:

  • Image of Sonic on Image of some Xbox 360 Game (Full title or XBLA title)
  • Post here in the comments with a link to your image or email myself () or JW () directly with the image.
  • Include with your comment or your email with your GamerTag.
  • Enter as many images as you like, however you can only win one copy. Contest will end on Monday, September 3rd at 11:59pm EST, so you have two weeks to figure something out and get it to us.

Some Helpful Tips:

Judging will be based on humor, creativity, and overall quality of how well the image looks. If you really have no photoshop skills but have a funny as hell idea, send it anyways, you have just as much of a chance as anyone if it is creative/amusing. Captions are accepted and encouraged to help with the lulz. If you want something more than MS Paint, but can’t afford Photoshop (and have morals so don’t download illegal copies), I suggest using GIMP (available on Linux, MAC, and Windows). If you need to find a place to host your image, I suggest Imageshack, no need to sign up for anything and free. To start you out, here are some Sonic and ring images:
Good luck!

Reminder: Golden Axe Contest is still running and way easier to win than this Sonic one, either way, you can enter both! So click here and enter both contests!
