February Cblog Xbox Scavenger Hunt!

January is DONE.

Congrats you guys for beating the crap outta King Kong.

I got several hateful emails and cblogs dedicated to me and my evilness for Dead Rising.

The Cblog Xbox Scavenger Hunt 2008 continues on. Remember, everyone's competing for their choice of a 4000 MS point card or a free year of Xbox Live Gold. The person with the highest amount of points after June's challenges will win the contest. In the event of a tie, a drawing will be held and a winner will be determined at that time.

February is the month.

The Orange Box is the game. Xbox 360 AND PC versions are allowed to participate!

What are the challenges?

Every challenge is going to be multiple parts this month, similar to last month's Dead Rising. Each challenge is now worth multiple points, and points can be awarded for partial credit for a challenge.

Challenge #1: Portal
Points Awarded = 6

What hasn't been said about this game? PLENTY by your account.

I'm asking the blasphemous, the insane, the down right most horrible thing from you contestants.

If you want this challenge, you're not only going to have to get "Vanilla Crazy Cake", "Camera Shy" achievements, you're also going to have to write a competent and NEGATIVE review of Portal in the cblogs. You'll need to use at least 3 pictures from Portal to illustrate at least three major flaws in the game.

These must be legitimate flaws with the game itself, and I don't want it to be "The game was too short." Maybe that Companion Cube's been gettin' under your skin, or GLADoS' knows you're allergic to chocolate cake and is torturing you, I dunno, but you'll need to write it, post it on the cblogs and forward the link to me via email @gmail.com

Complete the in game achievements for 2 points, the cblog for 4. The cblog will not be granted credit if 3 pictures and 3 points are not included in your negative review.

Challenge #2: Half Life 2
Points Awarded = 4

This is the original Half Life 2. You have to unlock 4 simple achievements.

"Zombie Chopper"
"Targeted Advertising"

One point for each of the four of those and you've beaten Challenge #2.

Simple enough, right?

It sure is.


The Bonus Challenge
Points Awarded = Double your monthly amount

Keeping in line with the whole Orange Box theme, we move over to Half Life 2: Episode 2...

This man is your worst nightmare.

You have to unlock 4 achievements to win the bonus challenge. 3 are super easy, one is not.

You have to unlock "Cache Checker", "Pedal to the Metal", "Gordon Propelled Rocket", and...

"Little Rocket Man"

Unlock these 4 achievements and you double your points for the other two challenges.

Anyone ballsy enough to run through for "Little Rocket Man" stands to easily grab first place in the standings.

I had 16 entrants into the challenge last month and only 6 completed any of the challenges. No one beat the bonus challenge.

Kryptinite = 1
Necros = 2
Conrad Zimmerman = 2
Spiderpigg 0 = 1
Lost Crichton
Vega3059 = 1

It's still anyone's game. I have decided to go ahead and allow anyone to continue to join the challenge if they so wish. Your chances improve with the more challenges you actually complete, but it's still very much anyone's game.

If you wish to join in on the Cblog Xbox Scavenger Hunt, shoot me an email @gmail.com with your name, dtoid name, and your Gamertag. From there you have until the end of the month to complete each of the above listed challenges. Challenges remain active until either the end of the month, or the last entrant notifies me that they have completed all listed challenges.

Anyone wanting to do the Orange Box challenges, please email me your SteamID so I can track your achievement progress.

Good luck contestants. The gnome is waiting.

About BluDesignone of us since 11:49 AM on 11.10.2006

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...
