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**

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!

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

Jensen: Marcus & Sonya

Gamers House Week 3: Trimming The Fat!

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*

oak

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.

 

Challenge Day:

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?

 

Turok’s Lineup:

  1. Kratos
  2. Nemesis
  3. Jensen
  4. Masterchief
  5. Marcus Fenix
  6. Snake
  7. Spyro
  8. Bowser
  9. Shadow
  10. Lightning
  11. Zelda
  12. Peach
  13. Sonya
  14. Aloy
  15. Turok
  16. Peppy

 

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?

Nemesis: Starsssssss

Luna: There you have it folks, Nemesis is trying to make Ryu see Stars.

Lightning: I’m surrounded by idiots *Spyro smirks*

light

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!

round2

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.

 

Final Round:

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.

This is a purge week so the characters up for elimination are:

  • Jensen
  • Shadow
  • Masterchief
  • Turok

 

But there’s more. On Wednesday 4 more Players are up for elimination and they are:

  • Aloy
  • Spyro
  • Kratos
  • Peppy

3 will be eliminated this week. Cast your vote on Twitter to save the character of your choice from now until Thursday! Click Here To Vote!

Gamers House: Pilot Ep 2

Welcome back to the GamersUnitedGG Video Game Reality House! In the pilot episode, the characters moved into the house, got acquainted and went straight into the first immunity challenge. My name is Luna and I’m one of the Producers that will be covering the entire season of the Reality House! Today we will find out who won the Scavenger Hunt Challenge and see which characters are up for elimination. When we left off, Purple Team was heading into a swampy situation, Blue Team lost their way and Red Team reached the first challenge. Let’s catch up and see what’s going on… Lakitu, take it away!

lakitu

After 10 minutes of sludging through the swamps, Team Purple finally came out to a lake where they could see the first obstacle and the Red Team halfway finished. Too bad the lake is in the middle of the course! Now our competitors will have to expend more energy to make it to the beginning of the course. Spyro lifts Sonya over the lake while Marcus picks up Peppy and carries him to the other side. Jensen and Master Chief makes it over with no problem and they head to the start of the obstacle.

Peppy: Don’t go to fast, Falco!

Marcus: We’re here rabbit. Don’t get your panties in a bunch.

Jensen: I’ve been studying the course, we should be able to get across the first 2 obstacles fine. It’s the trapeze wire that has me worried.

Sonya: Do the rules say that we have to touch the wire?

Marcus: What are you thinking doll?

Sonya: I was thinking that we could use some logs to make a bridge. That way we can all make it over safely. We’d have to take the logs with us though.

Marcus: Done! Me and Chief will carry the logs with us. The rest of you worry about keeping your balance on the first obstacle.

Jensen: Looks like we’re not alone. 

jen
Enter Dramatic Pause

 

The Blue Team finds their way to the course with Lightning and Snake at the helm. The team looks fresh and not nearly as tired as the Purple Team.

Lightning: We’d better get a move on. Shadow get across that beam with her Highness.

The dark hedgehog swoops up the Princess and speeds across the beam without tilting.

Shadow
He’s Fast

Lightning: Actually, that’s not a bad idea. Hey Shadow! Think you can take Snake and Nemesis?

Shadow nods and speeds to his next teammate. Before he could lay a hand on Nemesis, the beast snarls and walks across himself. Kratos and Snake take the creature’s lead.

Lightning: Men, pfft. Thanks anyway Shadow.

Shadow gives Lightning a thumbs up before speeding back across making it to the wall before the 3 men could. Lightning gracefully takes her turn and runs across the beam.

Kratos: Snake, I’ll boost you up the wall first so that you can help the others.

Kratos positions his back against the wall bending down slightly with his fingers interlocked and palms facing upwards. With a nod to his teammate, Snake runs and jumps off of Kratos hands to grab the top of the 10ft wall. He easily pulls himself up.

Snake: Ready for the next one!

In order Lightning, Shadow, Peach and Nemesis make it up the wall with their teammate’s help. Snake and Lightning both extend their hands to help Kratos up but the god leaps with intent and lands firmly behind the group.

Kratos: Shall we continue?

Lightning: Not bad Kratos. I can see how you stormed Olympus.

Kratos: Piece of cake.

cake
But is it really?

 

By this time the Red Team has already built a raft and made it to the key on the other side. Their lead is increasing. Blue Team finishes 2nd and Purple Team finishes last. Hopefully they can catch up at the next challenge.

Marcus: Hey dragon. Make sure we’re not at the end of the challenge next time.

Spyro huffs at the former Gear but without an excuse he takes off again to scout the best route for his team.

Peppy: You’re becoming more like your father.

Marcus: Huh? You know nothing about me or my father rabbit. Let’s get going.

Marcus picks up the old bunny and the team walk seemingly defeated through the forest.

 

Red Team:

Turok: Good job team! The last checkpoint is just ahead and then we can hunt the prey which is where we will excel.

Duke: I knew this team was going to kick some major A….

Aloy: Woah there Cowboy. This is a family friendly show.

Horizon Zero Dawn™_20170228090717

Orchid and Diddy Kong are swinging through the trees when Orchid calls out.

Orchid: I see the last checkpoint. It’s maybe half a mile away.

The party rejoice and speed towards the checkpoint. When they arrive the golden key opens a box that has a map and a riddle.

 

“You may think this clue is absurd, but to catch your prey you’ll need dessert. Don’t be fool by fake news, this turtle is not slow or easy to choose.”

 

Duke: Hahahahah hahahhahahahaha

The party looks disturb.

Turok: What is it Duke?

Duke: This riddle is hilarious. It’s that overgrown turtle Bowser. That’s who we’re hunting. It’s why he was missing this morning and no one seemed the wiser.  Hahahahaha

Diddy Kong laughs along with Duke while the others start preparing their traps.

Aloy: I guess we’re hunting one of our own. Let’s get to it.

An open field is just beyond the last checkpoint and red team begins the hunt.

 

Purple Team:

Spyro returns and points the team in the direction of the last checkpoint. Once again thw team arrives to see Blue Team running towards the field. Another step behind.

Masterchief opens the box and reveals the final challenge.

Masterchief: we’re behind but we can do this. All we have to do is catch the prey and be the first to make it back to the finish line.

His team is exhausted but Sonya steps forward.

Sonya: Well we just have to be the team that crosses the finish line with the prey. She gathers the team close and starts detailing a plan of attack. For the first time since the start, Purple team looks to be on the same page.

Bowser: This is not what I meant by being a contestant on the show. How dare you use me as the prey. This is outrageous.

BowzerPartyDS

A plastic arrow shoots through the air just missing Bowser. A second one swooshes by and Bowser blows his flames to disintegrate it.

Bowser: You’re not going to catch me this easily.

The koopa king runs into the brush.

The Blue Team catches up and surrounds the prey. Shadow speeds around him causing a distraction while Kratos and Nemesis prepare to battle.

Kratos: Give up Bowser. We have the place surrounded.

Bowser raises his hands in the air before blowing a massive flame towards Kratos. The god of war blocks the flames with his arms and nemesis grabs the prey holding him back. Princess Peach comes out with Lightning at her side.

Peach: Dont hurt him! He will come with us quietly wont ya big boy 😉

Bowser’s rough demeanor changes and he softens to the princess.

Both the Blue and Red team battle back and forth between capturing the prey from each other. The Purple team is no where in sight.

The Red Team approaches the finish line with Bowser and finds their way into a swamp. Before they could blink Orchid charges out of the bushes and grabs the net Bowser is carried in. She hands it off to Masterchief while Zelda use a spell raise the red team in the air. The Purple Team runs towards the finish line and wins the first challenge.

Professor Oak: Congratulations Purple Team! The captain Masterchief is the MVP and you are all safe from elimination. Now for the losers. Each teams will nominate 2 people from their own team for elimination. You will have the rest of the week to plead your case and the elimination post will take place on Friday.

Blogger Blitzers Unite: An Ian Appreciation Post!

Congratulations to the Finalists and the Winner of the 2nd Blogger Blitz Competition! You can read the final results by clicking here!

There are some people who come into your life and make it better. They bring out the best in you. Ian from Adventure Rules is one of those people. Last year he challenged the blogging community to participate in a Community Event known as the Blogger Blitz. As the 2nd Blogger Blitz comes to a close, I wanted to show appreciation by saying how much this event has helped me in blogging. Ian puts his heart and soul into making this event special with the drawings, the brainstorming for events and the way that he promotes each blogger in the competition. It’s admirable to see someone put so much effort into a project that lasts over a month. To have his dedication as strong at the end of the event as it was at the beginning is something that I hope to achieve and learn from. It may not be obvious to him, but Ian has helped cultivate the Video Game Blogging Community!

Personal Impact:

Last year I entered the competition with my character the Joker in a Matchmaking challenge to find love against Link who was sponsored by Teri at Sheikah Plate.

link-vs-joker-start
Great Drawing Ian!

Although I lost in the first round, the experience and passion for my writing burned inside of me and allowed me to start an idea that I had mulling over in my brain for a few months prior. I was able to finally define and initiate my Memoirs of A Villain post. If not for Ian’s event, I may not have ever started the Villains post speaking out on the injustice against Villains in the world!

Not only was I able to participate and meet awesome bloggers, I was also able to test my first person writing style. This was important because I participated in NaNoWriMo last year and my novel is written entirely in first person. I was struggling with the writing style and Ian’s event allowed me to practice.

I am hosting my own Community Event with the Video Game Reality House that starts Monday 10/1/18. I thank Ian because I was able to fully develop this idea based on his progressions with the Blogger Blitz. His guidance allowed a spark of an idea to flourish into a full fledged event that I hope goes over as well as his Blogger Blitz.

 

Community Impact:

Ian works extremely hard on bringing the Blogger Blitz to the Community of Bloggers and his dedication allows us to have fun and do what we love best. In last year’s competition I recall bloggers saying that they’re shy with their writing and didn’t have much confidence. The feedback that they’ve received from the competition helped reinforce their choices to write and know that they are worth the read.

This year one of last year’s  judges Chris from OverthinkerY, placed his hat in the ring and was on the other side. He has first hand experience on the judges and competitors point of view. His champion Master Xehanort was exquisite this season and he posted in interview formats that were a first in the competition. Chris wrote with passion to honor the event and he did justice to his character.  tumblr_njpf0grVvU1tob1xvo1_r1_500

Ian would always post comments on the competitors submissions with kind words of encouragement. He appreciated ever person that took time out to compete, judge and read the blitz posts.

This month he is also the star blogger for Later Level’s Question of the Month! His prompt challenges gamers again by proposing the question of creating the ultimate video game using 4 games that have already been released. You will want to pick each game for Storytelling, Visuals, Game-play and Music and compile an Ultimate Video Game! You can participate in his challenge here!

 

Thank you Ian for all that you do to help improve and push the boundaries of the blogging community. If you have not had a chance to follow or read the Adventure Rules blog, you’re missing out.

Want to read more gushing appreciation posts about Ian? Look below (Guess you’ve created another community event without event knowing Ian, you’re amazing!)

Thank you for Ian all that you do and thank you to everyone in the blogging community! Enjoy your weekend!

Meet The Cast: GamersUnitedGG Video Game Reality House!

We are less than a week away from the premier of the Video Game Reality House Season 1, set to take place on Monday October 1st. After all of the interviews and video game characters looking to make a name for themselves, we have narrowed down our competitors and today, they will be revealed. As an added bonus, we have some of the interviews from characters that were rejected.

Contestants:

  1. Princess Peach – Mario  peach1
  2. Unknown Character   imageedit_6_2102873127
  3. Bowser – Mario  bowser.png
  4. Spyro – Spyro  spyro-the-dragon

  5. Jensen – Deus Ex  Jensen

  6. Peppy – StarFox64  peppy

  7. Solid Snake – Metal Gear Solid  Metal-Gear-2-Solid-Snake-Leather-Jacket-450x600

  8. Nemesis – Resident Evil 2  nem

  9. Aloy – Horizon Zero Dawn  Aloy

  10. Kratos – God of War  Kratos

  11. Duke Nukem – Duke Nukem  duke

  12. Orchid – Killer Instinct Orchid

  13. Sonya Blade – Mortal Kombat sonya_blade_by_zabzarock-davzx3s

  14. Marcus Fenix – Gears of War gow

  15. Diddy Kong – Diddy Kong Racing diddy kong

  16. Shadow – Sonic Adventure 2 shadow

  17. Masterchief – Halo mastercheif

  18. Lightning – Final Fantasy lightning

  19. Turok – Turok  turok-remastered-xbox-one

 

Rejects:

  1. Luigi –   LuigiNSMBWSo Mario was too busy for the show. When Luigi heard the plumber would not be able to attend, he graciously offered to take his place. The problem is that Luigi’s interview was BORING! Anything he talked about revolved around Mario and pasta. We don’t want the other contestants to fall asleep so we had to decline his interest. Don’t worry, we offered him a role on the production team instead.
  2. Doomguy-    Doomguy_2016The interview with the Doomguy was umm… interesting. He didn’t speak at all and damaged our offices in the process. During out interview Doomguy would pull out his gun and shoot at the monsters that somehow got past our security protocols. Our location is Hyrule Castle, I can’t imagine returning it to the royal family with holes in the walls.
  3. Niko Bellic –   NikoUser3See we had high hopes for Niko but during his interview his bad boy persona turned out to be a little much. We have the safety of the contestants to think about. It didn’t help either that after Niko’s interview a few company vehicles and electronics went missing. He’s too much of a liability to have on hand and quite frankly, he scares me. What happens if her gets eliminated.. I’m not going to be the one to tell him.
  4. Pac Man-   pacmanProbably one of the saddest rejections was for Pacman. He wasn’t invited to interview but somehow he caught wind of the show and demand an interview. Pacman is trying to revive his career and become relatable for the new generation of gamers. The problem is that Pacman really doesn’t have any abilities to help him in this contest, other than his insatiable hunger. A silver lining, we asked Pacman to come back next year with a few of his Ghost friends. That would make an interesting show.

 

These are the characters that will be entering the house on Monday. Tune in to read Episode 1 where our first challenge will allow the house guests to get to know each other better. Don’t forget, you will be able to participate by posting why your favorite character should advance to the next round and by voting on Twitter for the Instant Save on Wednesday Next Week! Have a great weekend!

-Luna 🙂

Casting: Fiery Personalities!

Hello Umm… King Koopa. It’s nice to meet you in person.

 

Well of course it is Bwahahaha. Bowser Jr told me about this reality show and you can’t have a reality show without a top character like myself.

 

I’ve heard that before. Actually I was going to ask you to be a part of the Reality House…

 

Of course you were. Me and my associate here were waiting for our calls to grace your house with competition, intrigue and good looks.

 

Umm who is your associate?

Spyro_pose

*A purple dragon, smaller than Bowser but just as intimidating walks into the rooms with his wings at bay*

 

Surely you know Spyro! He’s an acquaintance of mines and very capable of being in the competition.

 

This is interesting. We did not have Spyro on our list of possible competitors but he looks like he will cause quite a stir.

 

So tell me Bowser, why would Spyro be a good fit for the show?

 

The giant turtle king huffs at my mundane questions.

 

Just look at him! Spyro is built for competition. He’s fast, agile can fly and my personal favorite he doesn’t take crap from anybody. He’s as fiery as he is strong. I’m sure your ratings will soar as high as Spyro does.

 

*The purple dragon bends to his hind legs, blasts smoke in the air before taking flight around the room.*

 

Perhaps a demonstration is in order! Bowser huffs again. He takes out round discs that have an oddly familiar appearance and tosses them in the air.  mario frisbee   Spyro circles the room and spits fire at each disc disintegrating each one which precision.

 

Bravo, Bravo!

 

*Next Bowser gestures for myself and the crew to back up. We inch as close to the back wall as we can. What happened next was a sight for sore eyes. Bowser built up air in his lungs, huffing and puffing along before exhaling and sending 4 giant smoke rings into the air.  bow  Spyro barrel rolls through the air and clears each ring successfully before circling back and shooting fireballs in between each ring. This settles it, Spyro is in! His performance mixed with his need for mischief makes him a perfect candidate.*

 

You’ve convinced us Bowser, Spyro is in! Now about your interview, well we want….

 

Say no more. I accept your proposal and will gladly enter and win the Video Game competition. Who else can be as brutal in challenges, as intimidating in house votes and as handsome as I to become champion? Definitely not any low life plumbers I tell you that. Now our time is valuable and Spyro and I have to prepare for the competition. We will see you on October 1st!

 

Wait, but you don’t understand….

 

And they’re gone. Yes, we want Bowser in the show but he has no idea what role we have in store. Oh well, should make for great television!

 

That’s settled we have Bowser and Spyro entering into the Reality House. There’s 3 days left to submit your video game characters to be casted into Season 1 of the Video Game Reality Show! You can review the details and rules by clicking here!

 

Who would you like to see in the house? What plans do you think we have in store for Bowser? Who will turn up next? Stay tuned for more unveilings this week and make sure to catch Episode 1 on Monday October 1st!

 

-Luna 🙂

Casting… Who Are You?

We are still casting for the Video Game Reality House and the deadline to submit characters for the house has been extended until 9/25/18! You can view the rules and premise of the house by clicking here!  Today’s post will be an  interview with a contestant that did not want to be named before the start of the competition. The contestant has used a voice changer but there are a few hints as to their identity. If you know who this contestant is, lets us know in the comments!

 

Everything is quite adequate. Thank you.

 

So what’s with all of the secrecy? Your identity will be revealed sooner or later, why try to conceal it at this time?

 

There are other factors working against me aganon… I have to make sure the passage to the house is clear before I can reveal my identity.

 

Are you having trouble with the IRS? I have a guy for that.

 

Nothing of the sort. This Reality World is quite fascinating but to be free and explore it I have to often walk in disguise. Many would wave me off as a common Ninja or shady character.

ninja
Not this ninja lol

Wow…

 

What is it?

 

I can’t imagine how anyone can walk past you without a second glance. You’re a magnificent creature.

 

I appreciate the compliment.

 

I’m sure you receive them often when you’re not playing dress up. So if you are concerned about your freedom, why do you want to join the reality house?

 

It’s a brilliant social experiment is it not? Also, my friend and protector hath informed me that a rival may be afoot at this house. With our varying responsibilities, it would be nice to make the acquaintance of someone from a similar background. You can’t imagine how many people both pixel and 3D assume to know my life. How many times I’ve been spoken for and my destiny being preplanned.

 

Like an arranged marriage?

 

Luckily my parents haven’t gone that far, though many of my activities and wishes are often ignored.

 

I see. So you want to be normal than? I can tell you, here a reality show is far from normal. Many of your flaws and indiscretions will be revealed on National TV for all to see. If it is normalcy you seek, you may want to try going to a garden or something completely different.

 

I don’t seek a normal life. I see a life of adventure and wonder like I would read about in letters from my protector. He tells me of his adventures and challenges when protecting our homeland. He writes to me descriptions of the people he has met and the lands he has seen. I thirst for just one of his adventures. To experience them myself, with my own flesh and blood. Not behind a cloak or mask.

 

Well you definitely seem interesting enough. What are your skills? Will you be able to compete in the grueling competitions each week?

*clears throat*

Oh, that was a neat magic trick

 

I am more than capable. In your world you would fancy me a wizard or sorcerer. I’m able to transform and use my magic at great length. I am also agile and have trained in the art of combat. I’m sure I will be fine.

 

Is that so your highness… I mean your? Your? What should we call you for now?

 

I’ve been known by many names, but for my safety and yours, better call me Sheik.

 

Ok Sheik. Thank you for interviewing with us a-ganon. I’m not supposed to do this, but I want to offer you a spot in the reality house.

 

That’s great and I humbly accept.

Who do you think the mystery character is?

The Producers and I have secured HYRULE CASTLE as the house that will be featured in the Video Game Reality Show!

Why Hyrule?

We Transported Hyrule into the Real World!

Hyrule offers a comfortable living area for the characters to eat and sleep. The massive size of the castle offers secret passages and secluded areas for the housemates to use. There’s also plenty of room outside for challenges and portals that can be used to dimension hop.

What about the Royal Family?

The Royal Family has graciously decided to take a trip and offer up their full hospitality for our contestants.

Producers Chris (OverthinkerY), The Gaming Diaries & Pix (Shoot The Rookie) voted on Hyrule Castle and why Season 1 should take place there. Hyrule provides portals, large areas for competition and secret passages where we can have cameras ready to pick up the contestants every move.

Producer Pix took on the task of exploring the land and provided great photos of the Castle.

What’s Next?

With the location of the show finalized we will start revealing the characters participating in this season of the Video Game Reality Show! Tomorrow our first character will be revealed and the details of their interview will be posted here. Make sure to submit your post as to why your video game character should be cast in our reality show.

See ya tomorrow!

GamersUnitedGG Community Event: Video Game Reality House!

Happy Friday Players! GamersUnitedGG will be launching our 2nd Community Event on October 1st.

 

We are starting a Video Game Reality House and the interview process for the characters to be accepted is brutal. You can help us narrow down the characters that will be admitted into Season 1. To participate, post a blog response with the video game character you would like to see in the house and your reasons why they would win! You can link your responses in the comments so that our Producers can review and vote. The final cast will be revealed between now and Episode 1’s start date of October 1st so post your responses by September 17th!

 

Additional details on the event and other ways to participate will be unveiled over the coming month on the blog and Twitter.

 

What is the Video Game Reality House?

 

Contestants will be placed in a house where the goal is to be crowned the Video Game Champion. Like many Reality Shows, the characters will have to survive the social and physical games to make it to the Final Boss Battle. Contestants will compete in video game related challenges where a MVP will be crowned. The MVP will have immunity for the week and gain privileges to help further their position in the game. At the end of each week, characters will be nominated for elimination and 1 or more characters will run out of lives.

 

How you can participate:

The community will be able to try and save their favorite characters via the Twitter Instant Save Vote or by writing a Confessional Post on the Wednesday before the elimination. The Confessional Posts will be your way to champion for your character as to why they shouldn’t be eliminated and add to the excitement of the Reality Show by revealing secrets the character may have witnessed during the week.

Confessional: Snake from Metal Gear Solid

After the challenge today we all gathered back at the house for a barbecue. Everyone was off in their cliques talking strategy and preparing for the elimination vote and I was doing my own thing… 

THEBOX_1
They’ll Never See Me Coming!

hanging out in boxes you know. I overheard 2 Players scheming on a member of their alliance. They’re planning to get the other Players in the House to vote for their buddy in the coming elimination. This is why I prefer to stay close to my box… you can’t trust anyone. Who were the 2 culprits you say? You’d never believe me if I told you…

The Confessionals can be used to save your character, throw others under the bus and cause more drama for the eliminations and episodes. Nothing is off limits in the confessionals.

The Twitter Instant Save Vote will be posted on The GamersUnitedGG Twitter from Tuesday until Thursday as a Pinned Message. You can vote to instantly save a character from being eliminated.

Both the Confessional Posts and Twitter Instant Saves will be taken into account during the eliminations each Friday.

 

What Next?

 

Now we start the selection process for the video game characters that should be placed in the house for Season 1. 16 Characters in total will be chosen for this first season.  You can nominate 1 or multiple characters up until September 17th. Tune into the blog and Twitter to see which Characters have been selected! Well, what are you waiting for? Post to your blog which video game characters would be great additions to the Video Game Reality Show and don’t forget to link your responses in the comments so that we can see who you are nominating.

 

I’m super excited for this event and hopefully this can turn into a multi-season community event! Have Fun!
