Competition: Win with RIFT and Custom PC

Competition: Win with RIFT and Custom PC

Put a picture in the forums of you with a copy of Custom PC and you could win a copy of RIFT and a new graphics card!

Issue 97 of Custom PC has just arrived on the shelves of all good newsagents and, as those of you who've already picked up a copy will know, within it we're offering you a chance to win one of 70 copies of Trion Worlds' MMO RIFT, as well as an Nvidia GTX 550 Ti.

But that's not all: We've also got another 30 copies of the game and another Nvidia GTX 550 Ti to give away to Bit-Gamer readers.

To win, we want you to take a picture of yourself posing with an issue of Custom PC and drop it in the comments thread below. The funnier the picture, the better your chance of winning.

Harry was even kind enough to pose for an example picture.

We'll be closing this competition on Monday 5th September, so you have plenty of time to grab a copy and snap a picture.

Winners will be selected based on how funny or interesting their photo is, with the best of them all grabbing a RIFT code and a graphics card.

So, what are you waiting for? Post your pictures in the forums already!

The Small Print: Photos with inappropriate content will be disqualified; you can enter as many times as you want but you can only win once; Joe's decision is final; Bit-Gamer will not be held responsible if you hurt your eyes by looking directly into the camera flash.


THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

We've since opened the remit to include any issue of the mag, but you get extra points for the latest.
Jaffo 24th August 2011, 17:06 Quote
I'll do a proper one in due course (with an issue that isn't 6 years old!), this is just a result of seeing your tweet!

That is in fact the latest issue (97) that I'm reading, regardless of the angle not showing it - the photographer has been duly shot slapped on the wrist.

The burning car pic does look like the magazine has been photoshoped onto the pic... looks way too bright compared to the rest.

Awesome pic komm. I hope that will be my daughter in a few years.

I wish I could get my hands on Custom PC in the states for a decent price.

Sorry if Im just misunderstanding your post and you are just trying to make a funny input, but I see Joe took it seriously so is based on that that Im making this post, this pic its obviously photoshoped.

I know I might get flamed or something but also think its worth to point out, the effect around the fingers holding the mag gives it out, also here's the real one:

But he's wearing a Skynet t-shirt, so be careful how you talk to him, he must be a T1000 or something...:(

I know it's photoshopped, but at the moment (with less than 30 entries) then I'll let it slide.

Also, the competition didn't say what state the mag had to be in...

Like it. I did one on a much smaller scale but wouldn't dare post it!

Jaffo 4th September 2011, 19:16 Quote
Fortunately, I have no sprogs (and if I did, I wouldn't let them near my PC hardware!) but unfortunately, I think this means we're all playing for second place behind Komm (great pic btw!).

Instead, I shall try for sympathy with my proper entry. This morning, a tile fell off the roof right above where I was at the PC. To say it made me jump would be an understatement; as it slid down the roof it sounded like the end of the world!

http://i53.tinypic.com/2lvd08z.jpg

Anyway, upon seeing the gap, I thought "Here we go! Stick an old copy of CPC in there as a temporary plug and compo entry." Kill two birds etc etc. So I grabbed an old copy (£260 7800GT LOL!) and headed for the ladder

http://i56.tinypic.com/25pnzv6.jpg

Once 30 feet above the ground and unable to either get onto the roof or reach the gap from the top of the ladder, I glanced down at the concrete path/tarmac drive/car bonnet (tick plummet landing area as desired) and realised what a bloody stupid idea it had been to begin with so here's a picture of my dog instead.

http://i53.tinypic.com/21dmxk3.jpg

Ah well, if I'm lucky I can at least sell my old gfx card to pay the roofer!

Hi, I.W.Spider here. Long time lurker, first time poster. Actually, lurking kind of goes with the territory for me. Anyway, here's my entry for your competition. I got the human in the house to take a snap of me and my spi-pad version of this month's mag (I'm at the top right, got a bit camera shy!).

http://i52.tinypic.com/nquzdk.jpg

Loving the digital version of the mag but not keen on this spi-pad though; it's only 2 point multi-touch which is a bit of waste for someone like me. I was reading Grumpy Gamer when we did the snap. Great article as always but I'm onto the masterclass now. It's perfect timing really cos I'm doing a new build shortly. Probably have to be Pico-ITX.

Ha, I have been rumbled! I admit I was not really caught looting custom PC the night of the London riots, your expert testimony will at least clear me at the magistrates!

I did not mean to cause a scandal, I agree (and also believed) that I should be out of contention. Better make a proper entry now (my vote is actually with Captain Custom above)...

*EDIT* OK, sorry about that, here is a photo of me from earlier this evening:

I dont want to seem ungrateful but I will not be playing Rift as it is a subscription game at £8.99 a month and I dont think any game is worth that.
