Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Roll Out the Barrel

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Mr. Iwata, Reggie (in particular) and Miyamoto have been great friends to the Kotaku 'Shop Contest over its three year history, so we're going back to them again with this pic from E3, which I'd like to think Nintendo shot just for your amusement.

This one one was a mortal lock for the contest from the time it went up, featuring three good exploitables, four if you count Donkey Kong's head. It doesn't need much guidance from me. You all are the experts, I'm just the curator of your collective genius.

While most of you are smart enough to figure out how to upload images, here are some simple steps to take for those less familiar with the practice.

1. Create your 'Shop and save it to your desktop.

2. Go to the bottom of this post and click "Discuss."

3. This brings up a comment window. Click the icon that looks like a picture.

4. This brings up another window called "Insert Image." Click "Choose file" if you're uploading your 'shop from your desktop

5. Alternatively, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image's URL into the field that says "Image URL." Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

6. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I promise I will look at it.

7. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some big-ass animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.

Alright! Have at it. Thanks very much for your participation.
