There’s not a huge amount to say here: you write a review. It has to be of a horror-based game. Voluntary judges will tell you that you kinda suck as politely as they can. Then the zombie apocalypse hits and we battle the undead.

BUT! This (and possible future) WGT tourney will feature the EmP-patented Sliding Scale Bonus Points Reward System! Review a game of real horror pedigree, and be awarded up to 5 bonus points! Review something as unhorrifying as the latest offering from Barbie, lose up to five.

The deadline will be the 8th 15th May (Usual HG time zone shenanigans apply) . Sign-ups and judges will now be formed up in an orderly list below:

JUDGES:
OD
ZIPP
GENJ

PLAYERS:
EmP: Silent Hill: Homecoming
MASTERS
DE: Phantasmagoria
FELIX
SUSKIE: Left 4 Dead
BLOOMER: BloodRayne
WQ: Resident Evil: Code Veronica X
NIGHTMARE: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
ZIGFRIED: Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams
DUO: Resident Evil.


For us. For them. For you.

Hmm. There are a few horror games I've wanted to chat about for awhile now, and this may give me an excuse/deadline.

But then... will I actually show?

Double hmm...

I'll judge!!!! Mainly because I'm not playing any horror-based games at the time, but by the beard of Odin, I will participate in this contest! Since I won the last one, I can tell all of you how much you suck compared to me! And I'll still be the kindest judge.

I'd like to judge as well. The most horrifying thing I can think of right now was my last ROTW, so it only seems appropriate that I add my comments to this mix.

On a more serious note, I've been waiting to judge a contest for a while now. I had planned on volunteering for Zig's, but I couldn't resist the thought of being forced to review a game at someone else's dominating whim.

There are no horror games I plan on playing soon and my finals will be until May 7th, so I will offer to be a judge.

This will give me an excuse to play Silent Hill 2, which I'll try to review for this.

That's hilarious. My finals run through May 7th too!

Also, there's only one game that I can play for this, and I'm not even sure I have the complete set anymore or if it's even operational.

Funny how there's a surfeit of judges. See, I'd like to be in a horror comp but I don't know if I can play anything new for this. I could possibly review something I've already played with just minimal refreshing. Failing that, I would have volunteered to judge, but it looks like more judges are the last thing needed.

I'll have a think about a possible game and get back here.

Can't have a horror game thing without Bloomer involved. Just doesn't seem... right.

Actually, you know what? There's a game I played recently that fits.

I might participate. Maybe.

Half the reason this tourney came about was to try and tempt Bloomer in.

If there's nothing you can write for, then we'll just have to have a forth judge! It won't be the first time we've done it -- assuming you'd be up for it.

EDIT: Master's recently claimed (via insolence) that I wasn't widley known across the internets for my horror mastery. He then suggested I stick to pony sims. I now plan to OUT HORROR REVIEW the hell out of him.

Is Eternal Darkness a horror game? I've had that from Gamefly for two months now, and they're probably waiting for me to actually play and return the damn thing.

Your collective combination of flattery and psychouts has successfully drawn me! I can think of two things I could potentially review, so I will commit to play now.

So uh... While I was home this weekend, I bought a game that very much fits this contest... However, I still won't be able to participate unless the deadline is extended an extra week. =x Pleeeease? =D

I'll decide on whether you get a extension or not on this in the morning. In the meanwhile, I open the floor you, the awful public, to air your views on this pressing matter.

I am voting for an extension because Wolfqueen begged me to help her cause.

Yay! <333 Now you actually can add me to the contestant pool as I'm quite guaranteed to make it now (and hopefully some others as well). Thanks!
