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!

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!

IBlogger Blitz Round 1: Matchmaker!

Happy Monday Novas! Thank you for reading my entry into round 1 of the Blogger Blitz competition, hosted by Adventure Rules! Round 1 will be between myself and Teri Mae and we are fighting to see which of our characters will be the best at the Matchmaker Competition!

Rules: The rules of the Blogger Blitz is simple, we were randomly drawn out of a bowl to find out our opponents and challenge. The challengers submitted their character of choice before hand and this character will be used each round that you advance. Once you receive your topic and opponent, you will write a post 500 words or less explaining why your character would win over the other opponent. Then neutral judges will read each post and vote on a winner!

 

“So I’m supposed to be providing a match for whatever this malboro person is, let’s take a look at his appear… AHHHHH! I drop the envelope with the picture of the malboro as the stench fills the air.

“Who in the world can I persuade to date this odious plant!” My devious smile curled all the way up to my eyes as I pick up the phone. “This has got to be my best idea yet! 

Hello? Ivy? Ivy doll, I’ve got a job for you…  Bwahahahaha hahahahah HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.”

“Now listen, all you have to do is put on that charm of yours and spray some feremones and he’ll be eating out of your hands.”

Ivy’s twisted glance to me indicates that she knows I’m not planning a normal matchmaking.  “Uhhuh and then what, Joker? I know you’re not in this to make someone else happy. What do you get out of this arrangement?”

Dang, it. She’s on to me. ” HA, you’ve got me doll. I’ve heard that the Malboro has an estate bigger than our friendly, neighborhood Bat! I want to have an unlimited resource of money.”

“I could use some cash. Fine, but he’s not to be hurt Joker, I mean it!”

She looks like she’s serious. No way I can persuade her to torch that plant after the ceremony. “Alright, if you insist.” The devious smile never left my face as I told her the plans.

Look at this putrid plant sitting on top of the alter, does he have no respect. I clear my throat. “Mr. Malboro sir, I’m sure you’re going to love the mate that I have found for you.” Oh my gosh that stench. I turn away to breath into a paper bag and quickly call Poison Ivy to me.

“Ah, this is Poi… um Ivy. This is Ivy!”

I can’t believe she’s actually going to marry that thing. Well, pretty soon I will be rolling in the dough. My watch is ticking too slow, come on, come on….

“You may now kiss the bride!”

“Yes! Woohooo… Congrats Ivy!” Silence. Oh yea, this is an improptu wedding and not many people are here.

“Why are you screaming?” Ivy looks like she suspects.

“I’m just happy that everyone has found love and that I’ve won a bet. Now you crazy kids have fun on your honeymoon!” I push them out of the door and hand them the keys to a special present.

“What’s this?”

“You’re wedding present, doll. You’re very own IVYMOBILE! I had it custom made to help you with photosynthesis or whatever it is that you plant folk do.”

Shes not laughing. I shrug my shoulder and shoo the lovebirds along.

They drive off in a puff of flowers and nectar, I had that personally installed. I can feel emotion and joy on this wedding day. I can feel the tears building up.

A big explosion in the direction of Ivy and Malboro.

“This is the happiest day of my life! I’m rich!” The tears are like waterfalls now.

 

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Absorbtion Assailants (Rogue Vs Android 18).

Happy Thursday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s Thursday TKO battle will be between Rogue from X-Men and Android 18 from Dragonball Z. Every Thursday we pit 2 characters from different games, movies, etc against each other to find out who would be the ultimate winner!  Check out last time’s TKO battle between Scorpion and Master Shredder here! Without further adieu, let’s get into Rogue Versus Android 18!

Rogue is investigating the disappearance of her mutant students from Xavier’s School For Special School. 3 Of them have gone missing in the last week, no trace, no note, no nothing. Rogue recalls overhearing Amy, one of her students talking about an amusement park that caters to mutants. “Sounds like a good place to start.” Rogue says. She tracks down the address of this new park and with a confused look she says “The Bermuda Triangle.”  rogue

Rogue arrives to the Bermuda Triangle location and spots an island in the distance. She can smell popcorn, cotton candy and hot dogs on the horizon, “I must be close.” She says. Finally Rogue can see the outline of a roller coaster and ferris wheel in the distance. She flies over and lands at the gates of the park.”Cellebration Park, huh?” She walks in. The park looks operational as the lights and music are all playing. The ground is littered with trash from the concession stands. No one is around so Rogue does the only logical action, she starts calling out the names of her former students “No Answer.” Rogue walks past the turnstiles and into the first attraction that she can see, a fun house. Before she can get too far, she she’s an image in one of the mirrors, it’s girl. “Hey have you seen…” Before she could finish a pink ball of energy comes crashing through the mirrors and blows Rogue out of the fun house.

Rogue peers up over the girl floating over her. Her hair is golden like the sun and her skin is kissed by the milk of cows, she has blue eyes and she’s wearing a weird type of clothing. her pants are black and she has a white long sleeved shirt underneath a black vest. “Who are you?” Rogue asks as she stands to wipe the debris from her brow. “You can call me 18 and you can call me master.” The woman says as she lets out a maniacal laugh. A smirk of confidence flashes across Android 18’s face. Rogue lunges at the assailant throwing punches her way. “What have you done with my students?” Rogue yells and punches 18 in the stomach. 18 Pushes off of Rogue and catches her breath. “I see you’re not going to be an easy opponent, but when I absorb your powers, I will be unstoppable.” 18 says. She blasts another ball of energy at Rogue who dodges. Rogue grabs the right arm of 18 and can feel some of 18’s energy transfer over to her. “What are you doing? Get off of me!” 18 yells and kicks the leg of Rogue. “What’s wrong? Think you’re the only one that can siphon energy?” Rogue says.

Android 18 grabs Rogue’s hand and turns to blast her. Rogue flies back into a cart of candy apples. She gets  up and punches 18 in the face. The next thing she sees is a horror in itself. Android 18’s face has morphed and now she has 2 green things appears on top of her head. “What the heck are you?” Rogue screams. “There’s no need in hiding this now” 18’s voice got deeper.  cell2 Rogue can see the change in 18’s body to reveal the true culprit. “They call me Cell.” He says and flies in close to hit Rogue in the face. Cell grabs Rogue and tosses her into the bumper cars. “Hahaha, I thought you would be worth my time.” Cell says.   cell He hits Rogue with a blast of energy that sends her into a cart of games. Rogue is bruised and battered and now she knows what has happened to her students. “Rogue get up, get up!” a familiar voice says. Rogue is barely able to turn and see her student Amy trapped in a cage of wires. “Amy, what has happened to you?” Rogue says. “We were taken and now our abilities are being drained from us.” Amy replies. Rogue can see that Amy looks bad as if she had been torn apart. “I’ll get you out of here” Rogue says. She tries to stand but is unable to make it to her feet. “You’re too late.” Amy says with tears rolling down here face. Amy falls over but before the end she touches Rogue’s hand. “I’d rather it be you…” are the final words Rogue hears from Amy.

Cell is floating in the air laughing. “This world of theirs is nothing compared to what I have endured.” Cell says. Rogue blasts Cell out of the sky with a ball of energy. “You monster!” she screams. The enraged Rogue battles Cell, punching him, kicking him and blasting him to the ground . Renders Cell immobile thanks to her student Amy’s powers. “This is for my students and all of the mutants that you have hurt!” Rogue yells. She blasts Cell one last time and watches as his body explodes. “This is for Amy.” Rogue says and she falls to the floor crying. imageedit_1_5678568027

Ultimate Thursday TKO: Crazy Carry

Hiya Gamers, Geeks and Friends and thank you for tuning in to another week of “Ultimate Thursday TKO.” We will put together an analysis of 2 characters from different video games to see who would be the winner (In my opinion) if they were to cross paths. This week I will be fulfilling a request from IgnitedMoth to feature Jinx (League Of Legends) versus Loki (Smite). Let’s start with their ability breakdown.

The request was to feature Jinx from League of Legends and I had to mull over in my head who would make a great match-up for her from Smite. Loki comes to mind because he is just as twisted and mischievous as Jinx, so why not let them battle it out. We will start with the challenger Loki. Loki is the mischievous, Trickster god who is bent on causing confusion and chaos wherever he goes. Loki’s roll is that of an assassin so his moves will focus on dealing significant damage to a single target. Loki’s abilities are as follows:

  • Behind You (Passive)- Loki deals increased damage when attacking an enemy
    from behind.
  • Vanish- Loki disappears in a puff of smoke gaining movement speed,
    immunity, increased damage and bleeding on any target hit.
  • Decoy- Loki deploys a decoy version of himself that taunts (mainly minions) before dealing damage in an explosion
  • Aimed Strike- Increased attack damage and slowing effects on the targeted enemy.
  • Assassinate- teleports and back stabs target doing damage and stunning.

What about Jinx? Jinx is a mayhem loving character with an insatiable craving to cause panic and destruction, who hates being bored. What other way to have fun and cause mischief then to light up her enemies with an arsenal of weapons. Her weapons cache consists of pistols, shock guns, explosives and her favorite mega rocket that will rival the stock of an army base. Her abilities are:

  • Get Excited (Passive)- Increased movement and attack speed when damaging an
    enemy or object that is destroyed within 3 seconds.
  • Switcheroo- Jinx’s basic attack switches between her Pow Pow minigun and Fishbones Rocket launcher.
  • Zap- Zapper shock pistol that damages, slows and reveals enemy.
  • Flame Choppers- Snare grenades that explode after 5 seconds igniting
    enemies and rooting.
  • Super Mega Death Rocket- ranged rocket gaining damage as it travels.
    damaging a single target and surrounding enemies.

The Battle: Loki hears about an interesting “Villain” running amuck in the city of Piltover. “Hmmm who is this interesting menace?” Loki says as he sits upon the throne of his latest conquest. “Being a king is boring, time to shake things up! (insert creepy, manic laugh here)” Loki arrives in Piltover just in time to watch a fleet of patrol cars speeding down the road. “Yup, I’m definitely in the right place.” he says as he follows. Before he knows it the fleet of cars in front of him are decorating the sky in a symphony of fire and debris. He dodges one of the car doors flying towards him “That was close” before feeling the thump of a rear-view mirror on his head. Loki falls to the ground and awakes to a a figure standing on top of the destruction holding a huge rocket launcher and smiling uncontrollably. “Ah, this is who I’m looking for!” He says and brushes himself off as he rises.

“Well, well well… who do we have hear?” Jinx asks as she is lining Loki up in her sights. “You don’t look like no officer around here.” she says. “You are mistaken child, I’m the great Loki and..” before Loki could finish Jinx blasts him with Zapper pistol. Loki’s body surges with the electroshock racing through his body. He smirks and vanishes. “What, where’d he go?” Jinx says as she looks around frantically. image_4-4 “Behind You!” Loki chuckles as he uses Assassinate! Due to his increase in damage Jinx stumbles a bit before jumping forward and pulling the Switcheroo. Firing rapidly at the spot where she was hit. As she touches down, Jinx tosses her Flame Choppers. When the smoke clears Loki is no where in sight. “Pfft, not as tough as he looks.” Jinx laughs. Loki pops Decoy and Jinx falls for it firing at will. The decoy explodes and Loki hits his 5 hit basic attack combination on Jinx. She falls to the floor. jix

“Guess I’ve traveled here for nothing.” Loki sighs. He looks at Jinx’s body sprawled on the concrete one last time before flipping a coin and taking flight away from the scene. “You can’t find good competition anywhere these days.” Loki says. He hears a whistling sound getting closer and closer. Loki stops mid flight and searches for the source of the noise. When he realizes the noise is coming from n=behind him its almost too late. Loki turns to see a Super Mega Death Rocket approaching and before he could make a sound… Jinx, still glaring through the crossair on her death rocket finally lowers the cannon to the ground when she see’s the fireworks in the air. “I love the 4th of July!” she laughs (it’s definitely February lol). Jinx tends to her wounds, reloads her weapons and prank calls the police department “Can I speak to Detective Vi?”. 5

What did you think about this week’s match up? Did you agree with the outcome, if not what would you change? Let’s talk TKO! Feel free to comment below and let me know who you would like to see featured!

Thanks!
