THIS IS A NEW CONTEST! THIS IS A CALL FOR ENTRIES!
ALSO! Please don't repost my email address in the comments! If you can't figure it out, it only gets harder from this point forward. YOU MUST EMAIL ME FOR ENTRY!
It's not too late to jump in the game here folks. 11 days left in July, after which all opportunities for new entries close
for the duration of the contest.
Some people call me a Space Cowboy, some people call me the Gangster of Love, some people walk around callin' me an asshole.
I embrace the first, disregard the second (I dislike italian stereotypes)*, and question the third.
*A racist once told me that Italians are incapable of love.
Is it an asshole-move to give back to the community? No.
Is it an asshole-move to make you people WORK for prizes? Uh...no.
Is it an asshole-move to stay up late nights sharpening my writing skills to write a 4 page essay on why fanbois must di... uh, it is actually. sorry for that, but it serves a purpose.
Anyway. I sit here with the Cblog Xbox Scavenger Hunt in the past, as of... now. And I feel empty inside. Granted, I could fill that void with tears of loneliness or ice cream, but I much prefer to take that emptiness, bottle it and let it ferment into a delicious rage, which goes good with fish, chicken, and white sauce dishes.
My rage, your suffering, is this new torment I'm about to unleash upon you all.
Mah rage, rat in cage, etc... I just saved you guys about 30 sad and unfunny posts. UPDATED!
There are prizes again. I've gathered a 4000 MS point card for first, 1600 points for second, and a copy of Uno for third. There will be more prizes.
As evidenced by the community support of fundraising for one Riser T. Glen's new Xbox 360
, I've seen the generosity of the community, and I've already received offers for more prizes with this new contest to make it better than before.
Contest duration = 4 months.
Each month will consist of a single challenge. Each challenge is not specifically tied to a particular game. There will be a lot more freedom this time around in the challenges, albeit with a short list of do's and don'ts each month as per the challenge. NO BONUSES!
1000 starts off real simple. Get as close as you can to 1,000 points on any game you want. Sounds easy/hard-ish, yes?
"I'll just go beat Avatar! HAHA!! FUCK YA'LL! I WIN DVD! NOW I GO POST MY RAID RESULTS ON /cake/ on 7chan!"
Whoa there, kiddo. Okay, first off, no Avatar, no Lost: Via Domus, no EA Sports titles (Sorry, no Madden '05 or Fight Night). And no King Kong.
Secondly, your game has to be pre-approved. Meaning you email me what game you're planning on playing. It has to be new for you, meaning you have 0 points on it currently. It can be NEARLY any game. After picking the game, garner as many achievement points as possible to get 1,000. Your score is based on the NUMBER OF ACHIEVEMENTS YOU UNLOCK IN YOUR GAME OF CHOICE, plus a spiff of 100 points if you do manage to get the whole 1000 points.
Blogs about your experience are encouraged, but not required, for now.
Meaning, if you (were able to
) pick Avatar, you can get all 1,000 and get... 105 points.
If you are a pain freak and hate life, go for EDF 2017. 105 points if you get all 1,000.
Orange Box will net you 199.
GTAIV would be 150.
And so on. If no one gets the full 1000, que sera, sera... At least you get some
points. All points must be honestly earned. No farming out to Chinese child labor in exchange for livestock.
Email me @gmail.com if interested in participating. If you have a gmail address, it would benefit you greatly since Google Docs will need to be available for score keeping and overall tallies. ALL ENTRANTS MUST START IN JULY. NO LATECOMERS IN AUGUST OR LATER MONTHS.
The goal of this contest is to prove to the community at large, exactly how hardcore you are, ladies and gentlemen. Can you beat a whole game in a month's time? Can you face an onslaught of ridiculousness and still come out ahead? CAN YOU UNDERGO THE TORTURES OF THE DAMNED TO WIN?
CAN YOU DIG IT?!
