Kotaku 'Shop Contest: The Emperor Has No Pants

Illustration for article titled Kotaku Shop Contest: The Emperor Has No Pants

Though SimCity says it's adding servers and stabilizing the situation, the game's launch week will forever be remembered as a disasterbacle. That makes the image above of comedian Adam DeVine—a frame from this video advertisement—rather appropriate. The game was completely pantsed by its always-on DRM, and while I know a lot of you are upset about that, it seems to be a timely exploitable for our Kotaku 'Shop Contest.

So grab it (click to enlarge), and go to town. (Feel free to use the frame from this story, too, if that derpface isn't good enough for you.


Here's everything else you need to know about posting 'Shops in the comments.

1. Create your 'Shop and save it to your desktop.
2. Go to the comments beneath this post and click "reply."
3. Click "Add Image" in the comment window.
4. Click "Upload an Image Instead." Then click the "Choose File" button. Browse your desktop, find the image, and click "open."
5. If you prefer, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then click "Add image" in the upper right above the comment window. Paste the image URL into the field that says "Image URL."
6. Add editorial commentary (you can't post an image without some kind of text in the comment field), then just 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. This is important: Keep your image size under 1 MB. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels.

All set? Great. Now, everyone, start your 'shopping!
