It's time for me to run one of these contests, so here I go.

It's the OVERDRIVE All or Nothing Super-Spectacular Spectacle!!!! The rules are simple.

EITHER:
1. Write a review where you give the game a 10.
OR:
2. Write a review where you give the game a 1.

AND:
Make me feel the emotion (positive or negative). I want to come away from each and every review with the feeling I either need to play this game right away or that this game never should have been even remotely considered for release.

Deadline (tentative....could change depending on....stuff): Midnight as May 3 turns to May 4 (HG time).

Judges: Me and up to two other people.

Contestants: The rest of ya!

I want to judge.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

Haven't frequented these forums in a while, but I'll be glad to judge this special event.


The meaning of life is to be aware. The breath of life is to remember.
To find and return yourself, within and without, to harness the spirit free.
The balance shall keep the truest soul.
And accept your changing self.

Hello everyone!

This contest shows up exactly at a time when I am planning to write a review for a grade 1 game and a grade 10 game.

Anyway, i just submitted a review for the SMS game 'my hero'. It scored 1 in my analysis.

Would you accept it as a entry for this contest? I promise you it is better than my last contest entry! :p

My services will enter this competition. I have never given a game below a 4 and I have only ever given 2 games a 10, Half-Life 2 and Tetris. As HL2 is already on this site, I have a Tetris review from eons ago that I think I'll revamp.

Or should I shun Mario Galaxy to the uber extreme?

As for you Zanzard, I don't want to sound like a snide critic, but do request some feedback.


There three types of people in this world: those who can count, and those who can't.

This topic went kinda dead. Where's everyone? No one else rose to the challenge here?

I'd like to shamelessly also promote a new review i submitted here. It's for 'Phantasy Star Gaiden' and it gives it 1/10. Since it is in the spirit of the competiton, I might as well use this thread to ask for feedback for it!

(Although I'm not sending it for the contest, per se. Sending 2 reviews for 1 contest sounds tacky, especially when nobody else seems to have sent theirs. :p )

Everyone'll probably do last minute subs... like they always do. Including myself.

Anyway, here you go, zanzard. It's really, really long... but I hope you read through it all the way. I really wouldn't have wanted to waste two hours of my time only to be ignored.

Yes....tears of rage.

Followed by me taking out that rage on all those who did show up, by starting my scoring at 50 and dropping it quickly for any real and/or imaginary flaws.

Gonna have to back out of this one, I'm afraid. The game I was planning to review for this competition (which I'll tell you right now is Deus Ex) I haven't finished yet, and it seems I won't be able to have a review up by tonight's deadline. With a few more days, maybe, but I think the limits of this competition (so few of the games I play are worthy of either a 1 or a 10) have made it more difficult to participate than I'd have liked.

Go ahead, Felix. Break out b0r0 again. I'd rather lose to him than be one of those people who chokes up some half-assed last-minute review to prevent the stigma of being a no show.

that's enough to make a guy PO'ed


Cairo: no, but not many games appear to have been designed under the influence of so much LSD.

boo: jus cause there's a russian woman in a cyborg ninja costume that looks just like a cyborg ninja you fought before that was secretly a man you killed in a minefield in the middle east instead of a person whose baby was kidnapped by a mysterious shadow organizations the patriots that formed as a sort of raw consciousness in the primordial soup underneath the white house and wants a metrosexual tranny to have a swordfight with a dude with another ninja suit on top of federal hall

boo: jesus, pick-y
