ATTENZIONE! 2008 contest announcement!

   0


After being exposed to CronosBlade's horrible games idea and the Old Spice Challenge from earlier this year, I became inspired to create my own elaborate version of a treasure hunt for Xbox 360 users here on Destructoid.

I'm thinking this will run for approximately 6 months, 2 challenges given each month.

Top point/goal holders at the end of the contest will go into a random drawing for a prize.

Prizes are winner's choice of: 4000 MS points or a 12 month XBL card.

This challenge is NOT about getting every last achievement in a game, oh no. You'll have specific achievements you have to unlock, certain goals to hit. Achieve these goals and you'll get credited for the game, and you'll be one up on the sad sap who doesn't get the achievement or goal.

Here's some good news though. Of the things I'm planning to put in the contest, many of you may already have met these goals, and you're simply going to be clocking up points while doing nothing at all.

On the other hand, others of you will find yourselves completely screwed because you've already done something in a game that a goal will say NOT to do. You will not receive credit for that particular goal.

You will need access to game rentals or cheap game supplies to participate in the contest. I'm picking some interesting challenges, and I just about have everything decided on already.

You will also need approximately 2400 MS points to be able to participate in the challenge, as a few of the goals are tied to XBLA games.

I'll be posting the first challenge on Tuesday next week. Any interested parties need to email me in addition to replying to this post. Subject line needs to be: 2008 Cblog Xbox Scavenger Hunt.

You will need to send me your email address, your name, and your GamerTag. As I stated previously, if you've already met a goal, you get credit for it, but if you've ALREADY gotten an achievement that I clearly state NOT to get, you WILL NOT receive credit for that challenge, under any circumstances.

I own a FamPuter, which is a 100% fake Famicom. And I do own Super Mario Bros. and Rockman 2 for it, which you don't. :P



I'm a 34 year old gamer. I cannot hang out with most of you, and you should not contact me to buy you cheap wine or cigarettes. I do not like jail. Seriously, I own all three consoles and I don't discriminate. Gaming is for fun, not for sissy slapfights. If you consider yourself partial to a particular console, I don't care why you don't own other consoles, I don't want to hear about it. If you're going to bitch about something, you'd better bring some hard evidence of why you're complaining if you want to cry on my shoulder.

Enjoy this wonderful picture of 2 generations coming together at last...
