Once upon a time, there was an annual tournament made more famous by a hilarious typo rather than the team-based battling it promised. Itís probably about time we rolled out the fifth version before behind the scenes nagging lead to premature suicide.

Gather around and bathe in the glory that is Challange V. One more year, and Iíve finally caught up with Rocky.

THE RULES, for those not mired in legend, are simply enough: Challange is a team event, being made of teams of four who group together to produce a combine tally of their review scored. There are several things to keep in mind:

  • Each member of each separate team must write a review for a completely different genre than that of their team mates. If member A writes Final Fantasy IX, member B cannot write for Persona 3.

    Thatís the rules over with.

    The four reviews will then be scored by a currently phantom judge panel, the lowest of the four removed for the final tally. With this in mind, risk-loving teams are welcome to field squads of three. They may want to avoid numbers any lower than that, however.

    Deadline is February 27th 00:00 odd HG time the end of Saturday. Youíre free to make your teams as you wish, or to advertise yourself here in the hopes of being picked up by a greedy captain.

    GO!

    JUDGES:

    Will
    Ben
    True
    Masters

    TEAMS:

    TEAM EmP
    EmP: Modern Warfare 2
    DoI: Tatsunoko vs Capcom
    DE: Ninja Blade
    WQ: Plants vs Zombies

    Another Team:
    OD: Fire Emblem
    Zipp: Hello Kitty Party
    Schultz: Dark Heart of Uukrul
    Suskie: Bioshock 2

    Trio the inability to understand the basic meaning of Trio:
    Zig: Enemy Zero
    BBob: Savage 2: A Tortured Soul
    Jason: Heavy Rain
    Janus: Hook Champ


    For us. For them. For you.

    Would prefer to compete, but I'm willing to judge if there aren't enough judges.

    I like this contest. I enjoy judging but it's hard to turn down the possibilities of co-op. I'll wait and see what teams are looking like, but I'll be involved one way or the other.

    Yeah, throw my name in for this one.

    Edit: I don't have plans and I more or less don't care whose team I'm on, so if anyone's interested, give me a shout.

    I have a feeling a certain British curmudgeon is going to call me out on a favour I owe him. I guess I'm one of the judges then, Emp?

    Zipp and OD - I'd like to join your merry band, if you don't have any objections. I'm planning on using sports for my category, freeing the rest of the team to use more common genres.

    Team EmP has been built. It will contain NO surprises.

    Masters: You can either judge or build a team of retired oldies you dig up from the cold earth yourself to try and retake the world.

    Zipp, OD, Rand and... Aschultz? How's that sound?

    EDIT: I think I know which game I'll be reviewing, too, if my PS3 doesn't die on me... the fan sounded unusually loud today. I'll take FPS genre, if there are no objections from OD (Rand I know is taking sports and Aschultz, if he joins us, is in a category of his own).

    We would have the perfect team name, too, us all writing RotW. "Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged" or, just "Judge Not Lest" if that is ok with y'all. "Judgernaut" and "Active-reviewist Judges" are other bad puns. I'm sure there are more.

    I don't think I've teamed with any of you before, and I think it'd be a good experience. So if there's no veto from Overdrive...it'd be a lot of fun. I have a few good ideas.

    I might have to offer my services as a judge if no one wants me on their team. Then again... how many teams do we have? Two? Where is everyone?

    They all vanished into the great time portal that is Destiny never to be seen again except on rare occasions when the Rift reopens and their ethereal souls linger just long enough to make a contribution.

    I VETO IT!!!!

    Just kidding, this team works out great for me! Rand's doing sports, Zipp's doing FPS...what are you bouncing around, Schultz? I have a good deal of flexibility with Dragon Age: Origins (RPG), Batman: Arkham Asylum (action), Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (also action), Fire Emblem (first SFam one that was a remake of the Fam one with a sequel tacked on...Turn-based strat) and could possibly work something else depending on what I feel like in Feb.

    Throw my name in there, Emp. I'll ultimately leave it up to you on what part I play, but I'm down for either role.

    Overdrive, check your HGMail. (VEIL OF SECRECY!) Rand and Zipp, hgmail me if you want to see a first draft. I want to write something cool, special and unusual. That's what contests are for.
