Contest: Get Autographed Aya Brea Artwork From The 3rd Birthday

By Spencer . April 1, 2011 . 5:51pm

IMG_0281The 3rd Birthday is supposed to be a rebirth of Parasite Eve protagonist Aya Brea and since the PSP game launched in North America today I suppose this is her "birthday." With Square Enix’s help, we put together a contest to celebrate Aya’s return.


See the artwork on the right? Yvonne Strahovski, Aya’s voice actress and Special Agent Sarah Walker on "Chuck", autographed it. If you want to win it, send a birthday card for Aya to [email protected]. We’ll forward all of the fan mail to Aya and pick the most creative/amusing card as the grand prize winner!


You can use e-greeting card services like (but not limited to!) 123greetings or Yahoo Greetings to enter the contest, but please at least leave an original message. The Hallmark birthday fairy alone won’t cut it. The contest starts now and runs until April 3rd @ 10AM PST.




1.) E-mail your entry to [email protected] with "Aya Brea’s birthday" in the subject line if you design your own card.


2.) If you use an e-greeting card maker *please* make sure your e-mail address is somewhere so we can contact you.


3.) Residents in the USA and Canada are welcome to enter.

  • If only the prize was signed Blu Rays of Chuck seasons 2 and 3 (which I still need)…

    I could enter but I would like to refrain from entering to increase the chances of someone else entering winning.

    • Oh, how generous of you~ <3 :P

      I loved the first season of Chuck, should probably buy the 2nd and 3rd one too at some time.

  • Ereek

    Interesting contest. I’m not particularly creative, but I’ll enter anyway.

  • I entered the contest just now, hope you guys like my card. I thought the message I wrote was pretty creative. =)

  • hush404

    *Gaah! *Runs to whip something up!

  • Zero_Destiny

    Hhmm. I might just have to enter. Prince has gotten me into the series. The first game has been pretty fun. I guess that means I’ll have to work my way to the third. *Good by money I barely knew thee :(* Well I do love swag so I guess it’s time to think up a good joke or too and send some happy B-Day love.

    • And after you win just send the artwork to me, because you love me sooo much, right? <3 :D

      • Zero_Destiny


        • ToSeektheChosen

          the cosine of heart would be somewhere around 0.525330…

          • Zero_Destiny

            What’s it’s Love levels?
            OVER NINE THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • PrinceHeir

      hell yeah :D

      even though i want everyone to win this(lol) i definitely need this for my collection purposes :P

      so yeah good luck to everyone :)

      • Zero_Destiny

        Good luck to you my good sir! If I lose to you I wouldn’t be happier because I knew it would go to the right person. :) I still want it though. lol

    • PrinceHeir

      oh and btw i just finished Xenosaga Ep III a few hours ago. it was awesome :)

      though the events seems rush, it was an enjoyable ending. i almost cried at the end :(

      though i would want to see what Saroya Saga’s version could have been.

      and it sucks that the game leaves up for a potential sequel. you can’t just cut that of :(

      definitely my favorite JRPG series. can’t wait to play Xenoblad and Xenogears ^^

      • Zero_Destiny

        Glad to hear you liked it. :) I haven’t put too much time into Gears. I got distracted because of SMT: Strange Journey. This always happens. I get distracted from my PSN games and play physical games instead. :(

        About 15 hours into Gears though and it kicks @ss. Fun battles, wonderful music, and a great story. I dig it so far. I think you’ll like it.

        I’m so sad. :( Only like one more episode left of 5D’s :( It’s going to end at 154 from what I heard. ;_; I’ll miss it.

        Oh well the 5D’s manga has the help of the original Yu-Gi-Oh mangaka (Kazuki Takahashi). He’s going to aid 5D’s mangaka (Masashi Satou) write his story just like he’s doing with the GX mangaka (Naoyuki Kageyama). And considering the GX manga is still running I think we should have the manga to read for awhile at least.

        • PrinceHeir

          hehehe that’s nice :P

          awesome, can’t wait to play Gears too. i wonder if nintendo plans to localize xenoblade hmmm :)

          yeah :( i stop at 150. will watch the last 4 episodes on spring break ^^

          awesome. i definitely need to read the manga :P

          btw i just bought Moon Diver and Hard Corps. played it with my brother, it was a blast :P

          if you plan on getting it, just add me if you want to play with me ^^

          PSN: PrinceofJae

          • Zero_Destiny

            Cool. I’ll haven’t played those games yet. I’ll might have to get them. I’m behind on the episodes too. Somewhere in the 140’s. I plan to be caught up and done before the new series comes out so I can come into it fresh without thinking about 5D’s.

            I just entered the contest. *sticks chest out proudly* I think I did OK. I suck at paint but I think the end product was alright. Though I pretty much made the cheapest and easiest joke I could of. lol Oh well, I like to think you can’t knock a classic joke even if it’s tired and been heard of a million times. :)

            If you want to add me my PSN is something like XZero_DestinyX I think that’s it. Just PM me on LUNCH or reply to this message or something if it isn’t.

            Now I’m sure you’re wondering “Why the X’s in front of and behind Zero_Destiny?” Well the answer is simple. I waited like 5 years to get my PS3 and some jag-off out there beat me to my own name. >_< Darn him, I'm the true Zero_Destiny not him. If I can find this guy I'm going to challenge him to a duel for the right of the name. lol

          • PrinceHeir

            yeah you should :P

            ohh if i may ask did you do a fan art or just a e-greeting card? i don’t know how to photoshop so i’m thinking about making a fan art instead.

            awesome :D

            lol you should challenge him to duel to see how many dragon quests has he finished XD

          • Zero_Destiny

            @Prince I just did a photoshop. I pretty much made a silly joke and photoshopped a pic together. I’m OK in photoshop but I’m not that good ether. Plus I was using MS Paint which sucks. >_< I was talking about it here:
            If you're curious about what I did you can check it out. ^_^ Just don't get your hopes up, it's not that great. lol I think a fanart would be cool. Far better than some silly photoshopped pic. Fanart is something I wish I was better at. Which reminds me time to go back and perfect my doodle skills. :)

          • Xenoblade is getting localized in Europe for sure while America is still up in the air right now but an american website being registered for the game and Last Story popped up recently for both games so its possibly its still coming to America as well…

          • The American one for Last Story has been there since early 2010…

      • Maxwell3000

        I just got to the second DVD. so far I’m hyped!

  • PrinceHeir

    please please let me win this one :P

    is it okay for fanart with a special message instead? even though im not good at drawing and suck at photoshop at least im giving a fanart :P

  • ToSeektheChosen

    That poster….<3 LESS THAN THREE!!! :0

  • FireCouch

    Should the subject header say “Aya Brea’s Birthday”? You guys are telling me to send it as “Aya’s Brea Birthday”.

    I’m saying this because I’m guessing you will be shuffling through all the entries through the search function, and a grammatical error could screw it all up.

  • Icon

    I really missed the PSP boat didn’t I… I should’ve got one of those things ages ago. It’s quietly stockpiled a bunch of awesome games.

    • Testsubject909

      You can get a ticket anytime and get on the boat. It costs a bit less then it first did and by now you don’t have to wait for all the good games. Though you will have to do some searching.

    • Get it NOW!

      • neocatzon

        it’s too late, better wait for NGP

        • Zero_Destiny

          It’s never too late to get a video game/system. Search my good friend. Search high and low. Never give up until you find the game. Now if you excuse me I have to go off and continue my quest for Suikoden II *sigh* Must not give up. :( Will find it some day.

          • neocatzon

            For those who have limited income like me, waiting for NGP is more rational (assuming NGP has backward comp). Anyway.. goodluck, hope you find it soon~ :D

          • Yes it is backward compatible but only with the digital releases and there are a lot of good games that didn’t get a PSN release.

    • The PSP boat went from empty, to amazingly full within the last 2 years. I probably use it more than my DS even. Not to mention, there’s still a mountain of upcoming games to climb, such as the other Legend of heroes games, Valkyria Chronicles 3, FF4Complete, That game by VanillaWare, Persona 2, Final Fantasy Type-0, Patapon 3, and more.

      • Let’s hope that the momentum carries over to the NGP so we’ll have great games right of the bat.

    • Well, I sold mine PSP 1k like 4 years ago and picked up PSP 3k GoW bundle 4 month ago. I’m not going to sell it this time. :P
      Anyway I do hope NGP will have better start and not only Ridge Racer 645 + one good game and bunch of crappy games.

    • Well its pretty cheap now to get one so it might be worth getting one now ;) and I agree if all these titles would of came out 3 years ago the PSP might of had a decent chance against the DS but guess not…

  • Aiddon

    technically wouldn’t we have to wait till November to give Aya a birthday card (born November, 1972)? Anyway, I like Yvonne as an actress, but count me out for this. Now, have her sign some of the old PE artwork and you have my attention

  • ale-x92

    Residents in EU can partecipate???

  • Yvonne Strahovski … who?

    is this the japanese seiyuu for aya or the translated one? I want the Japanese …

  • Oh wow, that’s so great! But US and Canada only? Aaah, c’mon, such nice Parasite Eve and Chuck fans in Brazil!

    • It didn´t say “only” … but ill participate anyway XD.

  • WigglyOwl

    At first I was excited for a contest…but then remembered, she was absolutely horrible as Aya.

  • karasuKumo

    No love for the EU?

    I think she voices Aya pretty well in this but it was a rather random choice.

    • AnimusVox

      Yes, yes it was.

  • AnimusVox

    Doesn’t she voice Miranda in Mass Effect 2 aswell? Unless I read or heard wrong.
    [I guess I could watch the ME2 credits]

    • Yes, Yvonne does Miranda’s voice.

      • AnimusVox

        Oh thank you. I loved her voice work for Miranda, I’d have never thought the same voice was used for Aya.

        • I love Miranda too, always took her on any mission possible, and female shepard was lovely.

  • Maxwell3000

    I really would like to finish PE 1 and 2…But I’m just plain not motivated. Maybe someday

  • It’s really depressing when you’ve got an idea, but lacking in execution orz
