Happy Tuesday and welcome to week 3 of the Gamers House reality show! Last week we had our very first DOUBLE ELIMINATION and the disks were ejected for both Diddy Kong and Duke Nukem. This week the contestants are in for a surprise as it will be a PURGE week and multiple characters will be eliminated. Let’s jump straight into the action.
** Cue The Host*
Welcome Players to Week 3. This week we will have a tournament for the challenge featuring some of the best Video Game Fighters in history! It’s another Solo challenge that can determine your fate in the game. We will see you bright and early for the challenge.
The challenge is a fighting Tournament where Players will compete in 3 matches. The contestant with the most Wins, will will the tournament. Let’s bring out their opponents.
Scorpion from Mortal Kombat
Ryu from Street Fighter
Kasumi from Dead or Alive
Each Player will challenge their opponents in a best out of 3 fight on their game! That’s right, due to liability reasons the opponents will not physically fight our Players, but they will take them on head to head on a vintage arcade machine! Turok, since you are the MVP you can set today’s order in which Players will compete AND you have the privilege of selecting the order in which the opponents will fight. This will be a ladder style challenge in which Players can only advance to the next round if they win. This is also Purge week which means the bottom 4 Players will be automatically up for elimination AND 4 other Players will be nominated by their peers. This week 8 Players will be up for elimination and only 2 will return. High stakes. To add on to this tumultuous week, the MVP will have more power than any other week. Let’s get started, Turok what’s the lineup?
- Marcus Fenix
The Players will first face Ryu in round 1, if they advance they will face Kasumi in round 2 and round 3 will be Scorpion. Kratos, you’re up first!
Round 1 Fight!
The first round of the challenge seems to be the easiest opponent. Turok could’ve really shaken things up with putting the most intimidating opponent up first but he decided to go another route. In Match 1 Kratos easily beat Ryu in Street Fighter using M Bison as his character. Ryu fought with his character and was swiftly defeated with a 2-0 victory in favor of Kratos.
The 2nd match pitted Nemesis against Ryu who was snarling at the opponent during his entire Kratos match. You could see the sweat rolling down Ryu’s face and when it came time for his match with Nemesis, we couldn’t find him! The 10 minute time limit faded and Nemesis advanced due to a forfeit.
Jensen, Masterchief and Marcus all advanced with a 2-1 victory, losing their initial battles with Ryu. Before long, each Player was feeling a little more optimistic about their chances.. Especially with Nemesis still glaring at Ryu during each of his matches. When we tried to pull Nemesis aside for an interview, he had only this to say..
Luna: Nemesis you breezed through the first round but we have to know, why are you intently watching Ryu?
Luna: There you have it folks, Nemesis is trying to make Ryu see Stars.
Lightning: I’m surrounded by idiots *Spyro smirks*
After a tense first round the Players that were eliminated are Peach, Shadow, Bowser and Spyro. Surprisingly, Peppy was able to use his fighter pilot skills to quickly pick up combinations and defeat his opponent. All the while keeping his same Peppy spirit and quoting lines from his Strafox64 game.
Round 2 Fight!
Kasumi took out most of the competition in the second round. Her lightning quick reflexes and knowledge of the fighting styles used allowed Kasumi to hand out defeats left and right. One constant from the first round is that Nemesis spooked the competition. When it was his turn to battle, Kasumi was unavailable and forfeited the match. The Players that advance to round 3 are Nemesis, Sonya Blade, Jensen and Masterchief.
In the final round Scorpion quickly defeated Masterchief and Jensen leaving only Sonya and Nemesis in the final battle. Sonya has frequented arcades so her skills are superb and Nemesis… welll quite frankly he just scares off his opponents. During the final match both Players excel so we have ourselves a tie. This week both Sonya and Nemesis will be the MVP.
