'Shop Contest: Let's Make Our Own Splinter Cell Sequel

Image for article titled 'Shop Contest: Let's Make Our Own Splinter Cell Sequel

Over the last week and a half, it seems a lot of folks have been talking about Splinter Cell. This is because of a cruel joke Tweet from Ubisoft developers. But if Ubisoft won’t make a new Splinter Cell game, well then screw it, we will.


You challenge this week: Bring Sam Fisher into other games and movies.

If we want a new Splinter Cell to be a huge hit, then we need to copy current trends, which means one thing: Crossover. Maybe Sam meets some Rabbids? Maybe he fights Iron Man? Anything like that would work. As long as I get more Sam Fisher in my life.

Next week I’ll pick a winner and hand out some awards!

Please note that the image submissions rules have changed just a little bit. We’re looking for images that are 800 pixels wide now!

How To Submit — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. 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.

5. 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 will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some 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.
