The Crew is a game that looked awesome the first time I saw it, there I was sitting in my room streaming E3 2013 live over the interwebs, suddenly a trailer with awesome music and some gameplay mechanics that looked like they would be able to keep my attention for hours on end.

Speaking of The Crew there is a very suspicious PR e-mail in my inbox about some things that are happening up in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The suspicious things of course being a competition on the Crew’s website. The competition entails the painting of a Mini Cooper S, whereby the one with the best paint job at the end of the day wins.

Well since I can freely customize a paint job on a Mini Cooper let me rush over there right now to make as many designs as possible. It’s just that I have this nagging feeling that I have been able to do this somewhere else. Must be my imagination. Now when I tried logging into the contest I got a nice message that said: “Your country can participate in the contest but can’t win any prizes.”

Well for all those geofencing haters out there I have basically delivered unto thee more fuel for your flames. The competition winner will have his final design in the final game, win some goodies and a limited edition of the game itself.  Since I know I must have lost half my readers after I said not available in South Africa I think I can end this now.

If you want to needlessly do a paint job for a car here is the link, though if you have any car game from the last 7 years you should be able to do it on any car of your choosing.

        When you cut the image always reduce the selection by 1pixel and then feather that by one pixel. Helps stacks 🙂

            It’s a nifty little trick I learnt that helps make an image look a little less “superimposed” when putting it over another image.

      Give the youngling constructive criticism Tim. Like not randomly capitalizing words (Paint), or repeating words in a short phrase (final x 2), and that using contractions like “I’ll” instead of “I will” would fit the conversational tone of the article better. I could go on. and on. and on. and on. Actually, I think I will. and on. and on. and on. and on. and on. and on. and on. and on. and on. and on.

            Fun fact: If you cover Ice Cream in meringue and put it in the oven to bake, then the Ice Cream wont melt. This is because the meringue insulates the ice cream to keep it from melting.

        Not at all. I know our player base on the grander scale of things is small but does that mean that we can just be cut out? It’s very much sadness ::(

            None. yeah the launch is delayed in SA. But so what? Does that mean any comps to win those games should be null and void? or to have your design appear in the game? It’s silly
