Good morning Players! This is what you’ve all been working up towards; surviving until you have reached the finale. Now you will test your skills and race to the finish line. Keep in mind that there are no longer any immunities for winning, but winning will state your case to the audience that will have 4 days to vote for the winner. This challenge will be a race through the world of Halo while being chased by the Flood, contestants will need to swim across an olympic sized pool and answer trivia questions along the way. Let’s send it down to Luna and Lakitu to get things started.

Luna: Alright contestants, you’ve heard the rules. Here are some Plasma Rifles to assist you in your 5K. First up will be a round of Trivia.

Who was the first Player eliminated on this season of Gamers House?

The contestants rack their brains and Jot down the answer.

Peppy: Jensen

Lightning: Orchid

Zelda: Diddy

Spyro: Diddy

The correct answer is… Orchid!

Orchid

Um Peppy, you are Jensen were partners 2 weeks ago. Why would you write down his name?

Peppy: Never Give Up. Trust Your Instincts!

Luna: Yeah well your instincts were wrong there pal. Lightning for answering correctly you will have a 2 minute advantage. 2 Minutes will be subtracted from your time at the end. Each correctly answered question will have time subtracted from your finish time. Players ready? Set … Go!

And they’re off, Spyro taking flight and the early lead followed by Lightning, Zelda and Peppy who has dropped his glasses. Peppy better get a move on, the Flood will be invading soon. Lightning is quick and when the first round of Flood enemies appear, she jumps off a giant rock, turns and shoots 3 in the face exploding their contents onto a far behind peppy.

Spyro dodges each obstacle with precision and uses both his Plasma Rifle and Fireballs to shoot and clear a path to the next Trivia Question. Zelda is quickly behind gliding with the sparks behind her and Peppy… Well Peppy has found a Ghost and has started driving towards the next question.

Trivia #2: Which character was able to avoid elimination by not being listed in the bottom 4?

Spyro: Snake

Lightning: Snake

Zelda: Snake

Peppy: Bowser

Correct! 3 of you will have time dedicated while Peppy, has missed again. Peppy do you not remember how the house was in uproar when Snake hacked the results and removed his name from the elimination ballot?

Peppy: Slippy’s not such a screw up after all!

Luna: Yea… righttttt

The contestants have reached the swimming pool and starts making their way across the water. Spyro’s lead has diminished as Zelda and Lightning are able to surpass him. But he is still way ahead of Peppy who has just finished the trivia number 2. We are about halfway through the course.

Zelda is the first to finish and performs a quick wardrobe change with her powers.

Trivia 3: What was Nemesis favorite phrase?

Zelda: He didn’t talk much… did he?

Lightning: Stars

Spyro: Stars

Peppy: Sorry guys.. I’ve got to sit this one out.

Lightning and Spyro you are correct. We are heading into the final stretch and Spyro and Lightning are neck and neck rounding the final turn. Zelda is close behind and Peppy is still trying to swim across the pool. Lakitu get into position for a photo finish…

lakitu

The winner to cross the finish line is… SPYRO! But wait, now we factor in the trivia questions time. Spyro had 2 correct answers while Lightning had 3. So based off of time, the winner of the final challenge is… Lightning!

Congratulations! Now we will send the competition to Twitter. Audience, vote for the character that you want to win the Video Game Reality House… Season 1!

Umm.. Has anyone seen Peppy?

Peppy: I saw my life flash before my eyes!

Luna: Us too Peppy, us too.

Gamers House Week 7 Elimination!

Happy Thursday Players! This week the competitors competed in a head to head dodgeball match. The results ended with Team Red Bowser, Peach, Spyro and Solid Snake being up for elimination. You can review the episode here! Since this week we need to narrow down to 4 finalists, we put the vote to Twitter to eliminate 2 of the Players.

The competitor saved was Solid Snake with the most votes!

You can come out, you’ve won!

Then we ran into a problem. Both Peach and Spyro tied. So Luna went into recon mode and asked co-workers who they would choose. The character with the most votes and the last person saved from elimination was… Spyro!

spyro-the-dragon

Sadly the game is over for Bowser and Peach who surprisingly is leaving together (we know you guys are secretly married).

Next the Twitter poll today will eliminate 1 competitor and the one tomorrow will eliminate the last competitor. Your votes will send 4 finalists into the final week of Gamers House!

Gamers House Week 7: Dodgeball!

Happy Monday and welcome to the semi-finals of Gamers House Season 1! On Friday the game was over for Marcus Fenix and Sonya Blade, who were voted out by the Players. Bowser and Spyro were safe for elimination and this week, the 2 will get to select the teams for Dodgeball! We are down to 8 Players so there will be 2 teams of 4, where the losing team will be up for elimination and 2 Players will be eliminated. This elimination will take place on Wednesday evening. From there the final 4 will be selected via the Twitter Vote. The 2 Contestants with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated on a special Saturday Elimination post. Let’s get to Dodgeball!

Challenge Day:

**Cue The Host**

Welcome Players to the second to the last challenge to find out who will be crown the Best Video Game Character! Today’s challenge is a good old fashion game of dodgeball where Players will launch a ball at the opposing team. If a Player is hit by the ball, they are out for that round, if a player catches a thrown ball, the Player that threw the ball is out. This will be a best of 3 so the team to win 2 rounds will be safe from this first elimination. Bowser, Spyro what are the teams?

Red Team Blue Team
Bowser Lightning
Spyro Peppy
Peach Jensen
Snake Zelda

The teams will take a moment to strategize and we will send it down to our news crew Luna and Lakitu!

Luna: Thank you Professor. This is coming down to the wire as the contestants have clearly drawn the line in the sand for the Players that are teaming up. I have to say that I would give the edge to the Blue Team. Lightning with her movement, Jensen with his abilities and Peppy… well Peppy may be the weak link here. On the other side we have a large mass Bowser who may be an early target. I can see Spyro and Snake excelling in this challenge. Lakitu has provided us with ball cams to see the action straight on. Looks like everyone is ready..

3-Mario-Sports-Mix
Peach has the advantage!

Round 1:

The Blue team starts with concerted efforts to get Bowser out. After 3 balls are thrown his way Bowser is the first out. He doesn’t sit on the bench alone as Peppy was also hit by Spyro who is avoiding the balls with quick flight maneuvers. Lightning takes out snake with a fast throw an dJensen silences Peach. That leaves Spyro for the Red team and Lightning, Jensen and Zelda for the blue. It was a hard fought effort but Spyro finally falls giving Blue Team the first win.

Round 2:

In round 2 the Red team comes out blazing with a game plan and targets Lightning straight off the back. Lightning put up a great fight hitting the balls with the ball in her hand and dodging with elegance and grace. Snake threw a curveball and Lightning was out. During the commotion Peppy was able to strike Spyro out. Peach struck out zelda and Jensen caught the ball the Bowser threw leaving Peach vs Jensen and Peppy. Peach avoided the attacks and hit Peppy in the nose. The winner of round 2 is… Jensen!

That’s it, 2 wins to the Blue Team which means that the Red Team have lost and are now up for elimination.

That was a great match! Tune in to Twitter this afternoon to vote to save 2 Players. The other 2 will be eliminated from the competition. The Twitter poll will be up until Wednesday Morning! Tune in Wednesday evening for the elimination post!

Gamers House Week 6 Elimination!

Happy Friday Players! The video game reality house is coming to a close with one week remaining and we have ran into another production error. There were supposed to be 2 eliminations this week narrowing our Players down to the top 4. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen so we are only able to eliminate one team today. This is pushing the finale episode back to Monday November 12th. Today we will eliminate one team and have an impromptu episode on Monday. Next week’s elimination will bring us to the top 4 and the finale episode where you will vote for the winner of Gamers House will launch. Now let’s see who was saved this week!

Wednesday, 1:00pm.. Hyrule Gardens

Peach: I trust you were not followed

Snake : *Rustles in the bushes*

Peach: Alright give up the bush act Snake, we are far away from any prying ears.

Snake: Right. So I have stolen the Twitter results. The Team that is going to be saved is Bowser and Spyro

Peach: What? How many votes did we receive? Was it close?

Snake: You don’t want to know

Peach: Ughh.. Well it could be worse. At least Zelda is up for elimination.

Snake: Yea. This week we will vote off a team. Everyone casts a ballot and the team with the most votes is eliminated.

Peach: I see. Time to get to work and get Zelda eliminated.

Lightning: You know that crazy Princess is gunning for you right?

Zelda: Yes, I’m aware

Lightning: So aren’t you going to do anything about it?

Zelda: Oh, concerned for my well being Lightning?

Lightning: Not particularly but since I am tethered to you at the moment I would prefer you care about being eliminated.

Zelda: In any case, she will not be able to eliminate us. At least not this week

Lightning: Oh why is that?

Zelda: I don’t know. It’s a feeling, an aura in the air.

Lightning: Right. Well while you are meditating and talking to the faeries, I will go and make sure that we are not eliminated.

 

Lightning: Hey Bowser, remember me?

Bowser: Bwahaha of course. What do you want Lightning?

Lightning: If this entire thing comes down to a vote, which team are you voting for?

Bowser: Marcus Fenix

Lightning: Ah, you have a problem with him do you?

Bowser: He thinks he is tougher than me and smarter

Lightning: Well I don’t know about the tougher part but I’m with you

Bowser: Huh?

Lightning: You have my vote to get out Marcus. I never really liked the guy anyhow

Bowser: Do you like anyone Lightning?

Lightning: I suppose I’m the same as you. Everyone annoys me at some point, some less than others *patting the giant turtles shell*

Bowser: Bwahaha Marcus will never see it coming

Lightning: One more thing. Is that dragon with us?

Bowser: Leave it to me. We will have the votes. Do you have that witch wrangled in?

Lightning: Leave her to me. This will be quite the elimination

Both: Bwahahahaha
