The competition that dumped Xbox LIVE Arcade game Dash of Destruction from its fiery uterus is still a thing that is happening. In fact, “Unlock Xbox” sponsor Doritos announced this morning the eight quarter-finalists for the ongoing second competition. The list is as follows:

  • Arak Attack by Samuel Gaultlent of Bellevue, Nebraska
  • Avatar Crash Course by Jill Robertson of Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Fowl Play by Matt Kurtz of New Haven, Indiana
  • Harms Way by Justin Carpenter of Ogden, Utah
  • Have A Ball by Keith Nelson of Spokane, Washington
  • Skies Ablaze by BJ Chavez of Waskom, Texas
  • The Artifact by Jonah Masse of Dixmont, Maine
  • Thrown by Jason Santaman of San Diego, Calif.

Each of these creators are receiving a “prize package” worth around five grand, according to the Doritos press release. What is in these packages is unknown, but we’re guessing bags and bags of orange dust wouldn’t be excluded from the winnings.

Interested in the games? Hit up the “Unlock Xbox” Web site, learn about the games, and vote for one before December 31, 2009 if it tickles your fancy. Apparently, there’s a chance you could win a copy of Halo: ODST or an Xbox 360 Arcade for being a good American (or whatever) and rocking the vote. Neat.

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more

Ubisoft is sending someone to Mt. Everest to play Far Cry 4

I want to play Far Cry 4 and, yeah, scaling a mountain like Everest would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip -- but playing Far Cry 4 *on* Mt. Everest? Not for me, sadly. That said, someone out there -- the one lucky person chosen...more
