Gamers House Winner!

**Cue The Host**

oak

Welcome back audience to the Gamers House Reality Show! Over the first season of this Community Event we have watched contestants get casted, enter the house and compete to be among the final 4. You have voted and sent Lightning, Spyro, Zelda and Peppy Hare into the finals.

 

During the challenge this week our contestants were tasked with completing a 5k Race. During this race they answered trivia questions, slayed waves and waves of the flood and traversed an Olympic Sized swimming pool. The first player to cross the finish line was Spyro and the winner with the fastest time (due to time deductions) was Lightning. Then we sent everything to Twitter for you to decide who the winner should be.

 

Before we get to the results, we have brought back some fan favorites to talk about the 4 finalists.  Please welcome back Bowser, Nemesis, Turok, Aloy and Kratos!

 

Kratos let’s start with you! First of all, congratulations on God of War being named 2018’s Game of the Year!

Kratos 1

 

Kratos: Was there any doubt that my game would be Game of the Year?

 

Luna: Of course not. Please, give us your thoughts on the final 4 contestants.

 

Kratos: Spyro is a great performer but I can’t see how he made the finals with his social game. Zelda is a beautiful Princess but to see her over Princess Peach is a joke. She probably signed a deal to guarantee her spot in the finale due to Hyrule Castle being the location.

 

Luna: Ok then… Well we also would like your help in picking a winner. The Twitter poll ended in a tie so out of Lightning and Zelda, who do you want to win Gamers House?

 

Kratos: Seeing as I would have only expected Lightning to be in the finale, I would have to give her the edge.

 

Luna: Thank you for your time Kratos. Please take your seat, we will have refreshments later. Bowser, it’s your turn! Tell us what you think about the final 4.

bowser

Bowser: Gwahahaha… Spyro has made it! My little buddy will win this season and prove that villains can have it all!

 

Luna: Um… Spyro isn’t in contention to win. We brought you all in to break the tie that the Twitter poll set. You can only vote for Lightning or Zelda.

 

Bowser: Foiled again! Lightning is strong and has always been nice to me, but Zelda is a beautiful Princess. My pick to win it all is Lightning!

 

Luna: Right! Thank you for your vote Bowser, you can return to your seat.

 

Some time later…..

 

After a few minutes of deliberations, we tallied the votes from the eliminated competitors. We have a winner!

 

Grand Finale:

Gamers House Finale Episode!

Happy Monday players! We have geared up through 8 weeks of intense video game characters schemes and this week is the finale… We will crown a video game champion for season 1 or Gamers House. Lets see how we got here. Last week the final 6 competed in a challenge where no one was immune and you the community voted to send 4 champions into the finale. This week your votes will crown the video game champion with a poll that lasts 4 days! The last challenge is an obstacle course. The contestants will battle swimming, trivia and a 5k race to the end to show you why they would be the best champion. Lets send things down to Luna and Lakitu for one last pregame challenge update!

Luna: Omg professor the finalist are surprising to mw. I had my money on Bowser at the beginning of the season but both him and peach got knocked out 2 weeks ago. After the vote last week the finalists are:

Lightning from Final Fantasy, Spyro from Spyro the Dragon, Zelda from the Legend of Zelda and in a surprising twist Peppy Hare from Starfox!

These 4 have been tremendous competitors and now they fight for the crown in this week’s challenge. There’s no night before meeting so let’s just jump into the action.

Challenge Day:

**Cue The Host**

oak

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!

snake
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**

prof oak

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!

**Cue The Host**

prof oak

After the Mario Kart themed event our winners were surprisingly Jensen and Peppy Hare! This placed 4 teams in danger of being eliminated.Those teams are:

  1. Peach & Snake
  2. Lightning & Zelda
  3. Bowser & Spyro
  4. Marcus & Sonya

 

The Twitter instant vote saved our mischievous troublemakers Bowser and Spyro! title

This leaves the other 3 teams in Jeopardy. This morning the house guests voted to eliminate one of the remaining teams. Before we get to the results, let’s check in with our field team Luna and Lakitu to see what happened this week.

 

Luna: Thanks Professor! Lakitu and I have been working tirelessly to find out what the Players are up to inside of the house. We were able to discover a few plots. Lakitu… Roll the tape!

camera

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

That was some great footage. It looks like everyone has an agenda. Let’s see which plan will take precedence and send a team home. Cue the results!

 

Jensen: Marcus & Sonya

Peppy : Bowser & Spyro

 

Luna: Peppy… you can’t vote for them, they are safe!

Peppy: I’m not too crazy about those guys

Luna: That’s fine Peppy but you still can’t vote for them

Peppy: Fox, take it easy! I’m sure he’s learned his lesson.

 

Peppy: Marcus & Sonya

Bowser:Marcus & Sonya

Spyro: Marcus & Sonya

Peach: Lightning & Zelda

Snake: Lightning & Zelda

Marcus: Lightning & Zelda

Sonya: Lightning & Zelda

Lightning: Marcus & Sonya

Zelda: Marcus & Sonya

 

There you have it. The team leaving Gamers House is Marcus Fenix and Sonya Blade!

Thank you for playing! The game is down to 8 Players! Next week 4 characters will be eliminated and we will have out top 4 for the finale! Make sure to tune in on Monday morning for the next episode of Gamers House!

Gamers House Week 6: It’s Go-Kart Time!

Happy Monday Players! We are 2 episodes away from crowning the Video Game Champion! Today’s challenge will put the Players in the driver’s seat of their own destinies. We are having an old fashion derby dash! Players will be provided with our state of the art go karts and will race to the finish line. The course us in Mushroom Kingdom so this challenge will be on location! Pack your bags!

***

Peach: Snake, I need you to find out more information about tomorrow’s challenge. We are 2 weeks away from the finale and we need to have an edge as there will be multiple eliminations this week.

Snake: *Rustles in the bushes*

Peach: Also, make sure you are prepared. I have a feeling that we will need to be on teams for this challenge and you’re my teammate.

 

Challenge Day:

**Cue The Host**

“Good morning Players! In today’s challenge you will utilize your team work, accuracy and driving skills, but there’s a problem. We only have 5 cars. This means you will pair up and take turns driving. What will the passenger do you ask? That’s simple, the passenger will try and detour (see what I did there) the competition using state of the art obstacles. It’s a good ole fashioned Mario Kart event! Take a moment and select your teams.”

Here are the Teams:

Bowser & Spyro
Lightning & Zelda
Marcus & Sonya
Peach & Snake
Jensen & Peppy

Now for the challenge. When Shy Guy waves his flag, run to the garage, select your vehicle and race to checkpoint#1. At this checkpoint, please grab 1 bag per team. These bags will contain all of your items that can be used during the race. Supply management will be essential here as the Players will only be able to use the items in the bag 1 time. I’m sending you down to Luna and Lakitu for the play by play!

kart

Luna: “Thank you Professor! Lakitu and I are making sure we have the best footage for today’s episode so a dashboard camera has been placed in each of the Players vehicles. We also have out own Nimbus cloud to fly over the action and catch all of the details! The Players are just about ready to begin so let’s get rolling.

** Cue Shy Guy**

shyguy

Players are you ready?…. Set….. Go!

 

Luna: “ And we’re off! Lightning and Zelda take a slight lead with their petal to the metal. The Players will need to swap at the half-way checkpoint. Our drivers for the first leg are Zelda, Bowser, Sonya, Peach and Jensen which leaves our passengers as Spyro, Lightning, Marcus, Snake and Peppy. Lightning throws the first punch by hitting all competitors with the Lightning Bolt shock giving her and partner Zelda a lead.

The plan was a little flawed as 3 teams through their blue shells to hit the team and slow them down with the rest of the pack. Spyro and Bowser use the strong arm tactics to swerve Marcus and Sonya off of the road. It wasn’t as easy as Bowser thought, but eventually the 2 went spinning as if they’d ran over a banana.

Jensen and Peppy are very skilled in avoiding the accidents on the road but Peppy refuses to throw any items at his competitor. We drop beside the car to talk to Peppy and this is what he had to say..

nimbus

Luna: Hey Peppy, why aren’t you attacking the other competitors?

Peppy: This is Peppy. All Systems go!

Luna: Yes, well we are getting to the end of the competition, don’t you want to win?

Peppy: It’s quiet… too quiet… be careful, it’s a trap

Luna: Okayyy??? Peppy do you want to win?

Peppy: Don’t go too fast Falco!

 

Welp, there you have it. Peppy is in for a cruisin but not for a bruisin. I’d say Jensen and Peppy have a slim chance here. Jensen is driving expertly but we are almost at the checkpoint where our Players will switch positions.

 

We are approaching the checkpoint where the competitors will now switch positions. Our drivers are now Spyro, Lightning, Marcus, Snake and Peppy and the passengers are Zelda, Bowser, Sonya, Peach and Jensen. The team of Peach and Snake were first to switch, followed by Lightning & Zelda, Jensen & Peppy, Bowser & Spyro and Marcus & Sonya. During the transition, Bowser chucked a red shell at Lightning and Zelda spinning them out while Peach and Snake take a quick lead.

 

Peppy: I’m not too crazy about those guys.

 

The players are rounding the final curve when all of the items start to fly. Each team is hitting other teams to slow or disorient them but surprisingly, no one targets Peppy. Jensen is throwing out shells left and right with precise accuracy, but there are no return shots to their kart.

 

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

 

Right Peppy, right. The final red shell is tossed to blast Marcus and Sonya off base and the winners are…. JENSEN AND PEPPY! Somehow that old hare was able to avoid being hit and drive to the finish. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised since he has decades of flying ships under his belt. The race order is:

  1. Jensen & Peppy
  2. Peach & Snake
  3. Lightning & Zelda
  4. Bowser & Spyro
  5. Marcus & Sonya

 

What a race! Now for the first of multiple eliminations this week. The Twitter vote will go up today and will last 24 hours. 1 TEAM will be eliminated on Wednesday. That’s right, we are eliminating an entire team. Check out the Twitter poll to vote to save your favorite team and this goes without saying but Jensen and Peppy are safe from THIS elimination. See you folks on Wednesday for the first elimination of the week!

Gamers House Elimination Week 5!

Happy Friday Players! We have 2 more episodes left until we crown our Video Game Champion! This week, we embarked on a Team Dining episode where teams were chosen and the group had to make a dish grand enough to receive a vote from the Goombas and Malboros! After a great team selection, Team Sonya came out on top leaving all of Team Nemesis up for elimination. This week the voting was done all on Twitter to save your favorite characters. The bottom 2 going home are….

 

Shadow and Nemesis!

Thank you for joining this season of Gamers House and we hope to see you in the future. This leaves 10 Players left! With so many competitors left in the competition, next week we will have multiple eliminations during the week and multiple challenges after the Episode. Your votes will count like never before as we will have 3 elimination next week where at least 2 Players will be cut! Who will make it to the Final Four?

 

The contestants remaining are: Lightning, Peach, Snake, Zelda, Marcus Fenix, Sonya Blade, Bowser, Spyro, Jensen and Peppy!

 

As the competition comes to a close the elimination and episode posts will become smaller. Our Producers are taking the weekend off to prepare for the next stage of the competition. Two weeks from today, November 9th, a champion will be crowned. Tune in Monday for the next episode and enjoy your weekend!

Gamers House Week 4: Team Dining!

Welcome back to Gamers House! This past weekend was one of the more shocking eliminations where 4 heavy hitters were eliminated. Masterchief, Kratos, Aloy and Turok all turned off their consoles and exited the competition, orchestrated by a devious Princess Peach. What will happen this week?

** Cue The Host**

oak

Prof Oak: Well that was an interesting elimination. It seems like you are all playing to win at this point and I like it! This week our MVPs Nemesis and Sonya Blade will select teams to compete in a Diner Dash! Cooking games have been a craze since mobile gaming started entering the game. We pay homage to these games by designing a cooking challenge. Here’s how it will work:

  • Players will select teammates
  • Players will create signature dishes to serve
  • Players can only use ingredients that their team has won in an eating challenge!
  • Best Team Service wins!

 

This is going to be a challenge of eating, cooking and serving dishes to a hungry crowd or Goombas and Malboros. It’s going to be an old fashioned school yard pick. We flipped coins and Sonya won first pick.

Team Sonya

First picked was Zelda. Sonya then chose Jensen, Peach, Marcus Fenix and Bowser

 

Team Nemesis

First Pick was Spyro. Nemesis then chose Shadow, Lightning, Snake and was left with Peppy

 

Prof Oak: Luna, how did our captains do with the team selection?

 

Luna: The teams seem evenly matched. Zelda as #1 overall is a great pick since we can assume we will be using the Hyrule Castle Kitchen.  Peach and Bowser have played many cooking challenges due to the Mario Party Franchise so they should fair well. As for Marcus Fenix and Jensen, I’m not sure what culinary prowess they can add at the moment.

For Team Nemesis Spyro is a surprising choice until I think about him using his fire breathing to help steady the temperature of the food. Maybe Shadow was chosen to quickly grab ingredients and does Lightning cook? I can’t imagine seeing her in an apron. I would have to give the advantage to Team Sonya right off the back, however, there is the element of obtaining the ingredients.

 

Challenge Day:

We have our teams and now for the challenge. Teams will need to feed as many Goombas and Malboros as they can before time runs out. Then the diners will vote for the dish they like the best. The team who wins is safe from elimination and the team that loses will ALL be up for elimination. This week the elimination is completely up to the Twitter Instant Save. The 2 Players with the least number of votes will be eliminated.

Team Sonya came straight out the gate with the fire… literally. Bowser is in the kitchen lighting the ovens. Zelda showed everyone where the baking utensils are and is using her magic to help jump start the appliances. The team is going to be making a cake to feed to our hungry guests.

Team Nemesis after a rocky start seem to have some type of plan together. They will be making a steak and potatoes dish to serve to the guests. The first round of ingredients is up. Team Nemesis can STEAL the eggs needed for Team Sonya’s dish by beating them in an eating challenge. On the flip side Team Sonya can STEAL Team Nemesis potatoes for their savory dish.

The first team to eat 3 whole pies will get to Steal the other teams items and continue their cooking normally. Bowser and Nemesis are going head to head again to see who can eat the most pies, while the remaining cast watch in anticipation. After 10 minutes of chomping, chewing and stewing, Bowser becomes victorious and is able to steal the potatoes from Team Nemesis. Now they will have to come up with a different side item to compliment their Steak. There’s only 15 minutes left to cook so they better hurry.

applepie

Spyro and Shadow are making a great team making sure the Steaks are cooked to the perfect temperature. Peppy comes up with a great idea to serve carrots and peas with the steak. Lightning grabs the old Hare and they both head to the garden to pick the vegetables fresh. Bowser and Peach are handling the baking of the cake. Peach tempers the dish while the big fella turns up the heat. It’s a perfect team duo. When the cake is perfectly cooked, Zelda and Sonya start icing and decorating the cake with garnishes.

 

It’s Time for Service!

Lightning and Peppy make it back in time with the vegetables. As Peppy is babbling, Lightning throws the carrots to shadow.

 

Lightning: “ Hey, Hedgehog. Prep and peel these carrots now!”

Shadow acknowledges and speeds around the kitchen making the carrots pristine.

Peppy: “ It’s up to you fox!”  Peppy yells while pointing at Spyro. A confused Spyro takes his lead and fires up the grill. The carrots are seasoned with a sweet glaze and cooked until they’re soft and ready for service.

 

On Team Sonya, Marcus and Jensen quickly prepare the plates for service. It all comes down to the wire but both teams created dishes to be served. All that’s left now is for the Goombas and Malboros to judge. The plates are distributed to our guests as they chomp down. Each guest has a Team Sonya ballot and a Team Nemesis ballot. After 10 minutes of eating, the diners cast their votes for the team with the best dish.

 

*Cue The Host*

That was an intense match, but it’s now time to crown our winner. Remember, the winning team will ALL be safe for elimination, placing the losing team in danger of going home. The votes are tallied and our winning team is….. TEAM SONYA!

 

That means Nemesis, Peppy, Spyro, Shadow, Lightning and Snake. 2 Players will be eliminated this week and it’s completely up to Twitter!

There you have it. If you want to save one of the contestants from elimination, vote on the Twitter instant save poll starting Tomorrow at 10:30am EST! Tune in Friday to see who will be eliminated from Gamers House

Gamers House Week 3 Elimination!

purge1

**Cue The Host**

prof oak
Professor do you ever change clothes?

Welcome back to Purge week on Gamers House. This week’s challenge was a test in arcade fighting prowess where our contestants battled against 3 fighting game characters. After a grueling tournament style day, we ended up with a tie for MVP. This week both Sonya Blade and Nemesis are the MVP’s and will wield important power during the elimination, but first, let’s see who was saved by the Twitter Instant Save Vote!

Since it is Purge week there are 8 contestants up for elimination and we will be losing 4 Players today. The Twitter vote will save 2 Players and in a surprising twist, both Sonya and Nemesis will pick 1 Player each to save! The remaining Players will end their game here.

 

In the first vote we have Jensen, Shadow, Masterchief and Turok. The Player safe from elimination is…..  Jensen!

 

In the second vote we have Aloy, Spyro, Kratos and Peppy. The Player Safe from elimination is…Peppy Hare!

 

Now before we get the decisions on Nemesis and Sonya, let’s check in with Luna and Lakitu to see what has happened over the week!

 

Luna: Thanks Professor! Lakitu and I have been staying at Hyrule Castle looking for any footage that we could use to boost the ratings. This week Players have been strategizing and plotting alliances and we have most of the encounters on film! Lakitu, start up the video…  Lakitu1

***

 

Peach: Did you find out anything useful?

Snake: *Rustles in the bush* Yes. We already knew that Aloy and Turok were working together. What we didn’t know is that Kratos is on a double alliance. He is working with both Aloy and Turok AND Marcus and Masterchief.

Peach: I see. Did you find out who is loyal to Zelda.

Snake: I did your highness. It seems that if there were a vote to save you or Zelda, many would save Zelda.

Peach: What?

Snake: Yea… something about you being a snob. Zelda’s nice, people like that.

Peach: Was there anyone loyal to me?

Snake: There was. Bowser, Spyro and Nemesis all put your name down to save. Those are our allies.

Peach: I see. Let me have a little talk with Nemesis before elimination.

**End**

 

Luna: There you have it. Some intel into alliances that could be forming.

Prof Oak: Luna, can you tell me how Snake has possibly avoided being on the chopping block this week after last week’s scandal?

Luna: Sorry Oak, the challenge depicted who was up for elimination this week along with a secret vote. I guess Snake did I decent job and has kept his head down because no one voted for him.

*Lakitu flies in with more footage…*

 

Luna: Wait a second. Roll the footage on camera 3 please.

Masterchief: So if we have to vote this week we are agreed on Snake right?

Marcus: Agreed. He cheated the system so he should naturally be voted in.

Peach: Gentlemen. I think that we are missing an opportunity here. Why vote in Snake now, when we can get a major player out?

 

Marcus: What are you talking about Princess?

 

Peach: It has come to my attention that your buddy Kratos has been shifting alliances.

 

Masterchief: He has? With who?

 

Peach: My sources tell me that Kratos is in an alliance with Aly and Turok with an aim to take you guys out. They’re upset from the 1st challenge where you swooped in and won. Turok is determined to make you guys pay.

Marcus: That…. I knew he was being too nice about the whole situation.

Masterchief: So they are voting for who?

Peach: I’m not sure on that. All I know is that it will probably be one of you two if not both.

Marcus: Hmmm… Then we should vote both Aloy and Turok in. Peach… are you with us?

Peach: I am. Aloy rubs me the wrong way so I shall vote for her.

Masterchief: Right! Marcus and I will take Kratos and Turok. We shall battle this out in elimination.

Peach: Goodluck boys. I would hate to see you leave.

Marcus: Thanks Princess. Talk to you soon

**Peach walks out the room and her dainty smile turns into an evil grin.**

*End*

 

Luna: Wow! Looks like Peach kept up her end of the bargain. Now we have some heavy hitters in the elimination on Purge week.

Prof Oak: Ah, I see. Let’s get the decisions from our MVPs. Sonya Blade. Who are you saving from elimination?

Sonya: I am saving Shadow!

Prof Oak: Now Nemesis, you are the last vote. Who are you saving from elimination?

Nemesis:Starssssss

Prof Oak: Huh?

Nemesis: Starssss  *Points to Spyro*

Pro Oak: There you have it, Spyro and Shadow are safe along with Jensen and Peppy. This ends the game for Masterchief, Turok, Aloy and Kratos 4 heavy hitters that many placed in the top 5! Wow. No one seen this coming, but somehow we lose 4 great Players and their games are over. Thank you for playing!

Next week we will have a staple event where the Players should come hungry. We are nearing the end of the Gamers House with 12 Players left. There are 2 more weeks left in Gamers House so this should be a doozie. See you on Monday at 10:30am EST.
