Contest TIme: Forza Horizon Limited Collector’s Edition is up for grabs UPDATE: It’s clear who won

Jeff Glucker January 28, 2013 Announcements, Featured, Tech 53 Comments

Forza giveaway

Want to play Forza Horizon, but you don’t want to pay for a copy? I’ve got you covered… well, one of you anyway. Sitting on my desk, still wrapped in its protective plastic wrapper, is a copy of Forza Horizon. This is the Limited Collector’s Edition, which nets you a few goodies inside the packaging as well as the Day 1 Add-on Pack, VIP Membership and Car Pack, Horizon Accelerator Token Pack, and five additional car pack liveries. Besides that you get the game itself, which is sort of Test Drive meets Forza as it’s an open world driving game paired with the simulation mechanics from Forza Motorsport.

So how am I going to determining who gets the copy? Why, with a good old fashioned Photoshoppin’ contest, of course! I want you to use this image: Me and the Cadillac Coupe. Then post your creations in the comment sections. We will keep the contest running until Friday afternoon, and the winner will be determined by the amount of upvotes on their entry.

Fire up ‘Shoppin’ machines, and get cracking if you want to win this game.

UPDATE: If you look below, you’ll see who won. Official announcement on Monday. Thanks for playing, everyone!

    I bought this shortly after it came out. The festival theme in is a bit tiresome, but I'm loving the roaming and the Rally Expansion is awesome. It's like a completely different game.
    I haven't looked, has someone created a Hooniverse club in Horizon?

    • Jeff Glucker

      It should be under TheHooniverse I believe

  • Josh Howard

    Great Scott! It's another car review from everyone's favorite blooger!

      That's gonna be hard to beat. Nicely done!

      • Josh Howard

        Thanks Flick. I love the CTS… but when I first saw the pic, I immediately thought Delorean. Have NO idea why.

  • Irishzombieman

    Unapologetically, Mr. Dylan.

      Dang. Never expected to win or anything, but expected a few more to get the reference to the admittedly obscure song lyric.

      / grabs his stuff, brings it all back home

      • Scandinavian Flick

        I got the reference and got a good laugh out of it!

        One of those upped thumbs is mine.

      I'd like to give you more than just one +1.

    • Josh Howard

      Hahaha… AWESOME!

    • Scandinavian Flick

      Who voted me down…? Twice… :(

      • Irishzombieman

        Smile. I up-voted you twice from different computers.

        • Scandinavian Flick


          Heh, thanks, friend. Like you said with yours, I don't plan on winning. I just have a whole lot of fun with these.

          • Irishzombieman

            Same here. I find it terribly amusing that, for all the time and money I spent learning Photoshop for professional purposes, I now use it mostly as a tool for humorous self-expression.

            Nice job on the spinners, hombre.

            • Scandinavian Flick

              I've got CS4 on my computer at work for editing maps for georectification purposes.

              …and adding spinning dubs to Cadillacs.

              • Josh Howard

                I thought you did it for the ladies? I do tons of stuff like this for fun.

                Other than that… that's pretty lame someone would vote this down…. or any of them for that matter.

                • Scandinavian Flick

                  My Photoshop brings all the girls to the board, and they're like…

                  …no… that's dumb. I'm not going to finish that…

                  Yeah, I love doing this too. Coming up with an idea, then finding a way to illustrate what's in my head is fun. Especially since I don't really have any discernible artistic talent otherwise.

                  I can understand one thumbs down. I've missed the mark before, and it's even easier on the phone. But when I lost two points, I kinda took it more personally than I probably should have….

                  • Vairship

                    Too late! I read that entire post in the same "all the girls to the board" verse…

    • SSurfer321

      Flick, you never disappoint. Well done.

      I love the spinny rims. Now that they aren't fashionable, I don't see them around any more. And… I.. well, I sort of miss them. I mean, you are going to go over the top, go all the way, right?

      Confidential to Mr. Glucker: you should totally find a pimp coat with the zebra trim for your next video review Questionable Fashion Accessory (that's an in-joke, right?).

    Don't start a finger gun fight you can't finish, Jeff.

        I've been waiting for Mr. Harrell to hop on with a "ZOMG, You RUINED it!" comment. 😉 I'm still not quite sure what the white car is, but it has that Harrell Harem look to it.

          Subaru 360.

          • jeepjeff

            Thanks! And now I know.

          No, it's okay. I found that if I watch long enough, it changes back right after he says the magic word "BRAH."

          Power indeed.

    • mr. mzs zsm msz esq

      T, you know when you win, the video game will not run on your Centra. Also, wow.
