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