Hello there! Welcome all.
This year I have decided to set up my own contest. However, this is going to be all about gaming!

Now, the prize for the winner is! ...
<div class='spoiler_toggle'>Spoiler: click to toggle</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">The Humble Indie Bundle #2&#33;
http://www.humblebundle.com

I will be buying it for the winner, the amount I am paying will be disclosed until a later date.</div>
So&#33; How this works is very similar to Steam&#39;s current Scavenger hunt. For those unfamiliar, I will post a list of objectives/challenges for you to compete against. Whoever has the most objectives complete... wins&#33;
This will be running until the 21st&#33; The Prize will be given out on the 21st-onwards.

To send me your entries, printscreen/take photo of the screen where your score is clearly visible, upload to photobucket/tinypic and PM them to me with the title "Day _ entry", with the appropriate day number in there. Videos are also included for proof&#33;

The challenges are&#33;... <div class='spoiler_toggle'>Day1 17/12/2010</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">1- Robot Unicorn Attack (PC)
http://games.adultswim.com/robot-unicorn-attack-twitchy-online-game.html
Earn the highest score. Print screen the final score, upload it and then send it to me.

2- Mario Kart Wii (Wii)
Race in the fastest time as Koopa Troopa, in his standard kart, on N64 Mario Raceway (Shell Cup) in Time Trial mode.
A camera is needed for this challenge. When you have your fastest time, take a picture of the screen at the end of the race.
</div>
<div class='spoiler_toggle'>Day2 18/12/2010</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">1-QWOP (PC)
http://www.foddy.net/Athletics.html
Make it as far as you can, then screenshot the result.

2- Mario galaxy (Wii)
In the Ghostly Galaxy, Purple Coins in the Bone Pen - Now, collect the 100 coins needed for the star but do it in the fastest time&#33;
Take a photo of the moment just before you grab the star.
</div>
<div class='spoiler_toggle'>Day3 19/12/2010</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">1- Alien hominid (PC)

What if someone who wants to participate doesn&#39;t have a Wii or Mario Kart?They will have to miss out on the challenge sadly. I&#39;m trying to cover as much as I can with the games.

it wouldn&#39;t have been hard to just do the PC ones and still at least contend, instead of whining.

you were whining. or, at very least, you were not entering.

umad, bro?

i am sure just by looking at the games, that andy was trying to pick things that most people on this forum had access to, without making it all flash-games, which can be fickle. I&#39;d say on an animal crossing/nintendo board, super mario galaxy and mario kart wii aren&#39;t too much of a stretch. dorito&#39;s crash course, a bit more out there, but still free.

you didn&#39;t HAVE to go out and buy games to enter. hell, all you had to do was post your 1-minute attempt at a high score, and you&#39;d a least be entered.

i didn&#39;t boot up my wii for this contest, and i ended up "winning". i have no xbox, and i did not intend to buy an xbox for this. your disadvantage argument is *censored.2.0*, though the disadvantage would have been there, HAD PEOPLE ENTERED.

tl;dr, cry some more.
