Although 2K canceled the Uber Edition of BioShock 2, they haven't scrapped the Big Daddies that were supposed to be shipped with that version. So what?
The best part is that 2K is giving fans a chance to own those Big Daddy suits and win $5,000 at the same time. The company has launched a BioShock 2 Vid-Cap Contest, challenging players to capture their most hilariously outrageous in-game moments. Console owners are allowed to use any ol' camera to film their exploits, if they don't have any better equipment, and the contest page conveniently provide PC gamers a link to FRAPS. The final video you decide to use needs to be uploaded to YouTube, then submitted to the 2K Games channel.
$5,000 is awesome, but you know what's even more awesome? A Big Daddy suit to call your own. Participants have until exactly 11:59:59 PM ET on June 7 to submit their masterpieces, and winners will be announced between September and December 2010. If you're not 18 yet, be sure to get permission from a legal guardian (like your mommy and daddy) before entering.
There's an incredibly lengthy "Contest Rules" section on the official page, but the most glaring snag reads: CONTEST VOID IN THE US STATES OF ARIZONA, CONNECTICUT, MARYLAND, NORTH DAKOTA AND VERMONT AND WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED. "Where otherwise prohibited" refers to Australia, Canada, UK, and Ireland.
As for everyone else, check the video to get an idea of what 2K is looking for, in terms of contest entries.
