I find it both appropriate and satisfying that this announcement comes on the heals of my mod article. Viva la PC!

“I find it both appropriate and satisfying that this announcement comes on the heals of my mod article.”

I find it both self-serving and a self-fulfilled prophecy since this contest was actually announced before you posted your mod article. You are simply late to the party.

Also, speaking of old news, stop using that early promotional screenshot for the game because it’s misleading. Malcolm is not actually a playable character in the released version of Unreal Tournament 3, and the shock rifle doesn’t look like that.
