Welcome to a new era of...
Iron Avatarist

The judges in this Iron Avatarist contest...

(Oblivion/Licoot/Crimmy/Qwernt/Recaiden)

Final line-up subject to change. Let me know who wishes to Judge.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Our theme this month is...
PC PC's
Everyone knows of Sega, Nintendo, Xbox... but in the background was the personal computer. PC games have been around just as long and have a following all its own. Make a monument to the PC PC's; Commander Keen, Duke Nukem, Jazz Jackrabbit. May they not be forgotten!

Note: This is not limited to old PC games, but any PC game. Not console, video or equivalent games. If the game originated as a PC game though, and became a console game later on, those are fine to enter.

Remember: All artwork must be your own. Do not take, alter, or use any of the The Giant's art. Thanks.

Categories
There will be a First through Third place award for each of the following:

Best PC Avatar (anything roughly avatar size)
Best OotPC Avatar (as above, but OotS based)
Best Crossover (any games meeting the other(s). This may even be earlier versions meeting their modern ones)
Best Game Scene (anything larger than above)
Best Rookie Entry (only applicable to those who have never entered these competitions before)
And, as always, the Best Overall award.

I'll also voice my opinion on which entry is the most kick-awesome in the form of a VT's Choice Award, which may be anything that tickles my fancy or was shamelessly tailored to my tastes (I approve of shamelessessness).

Rules

1. All entries must be posted by Nov. 30th at Noon, EST.

2. Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.

3. Every entry must include an itallic introduction as to what your entry is.

For example:
Best Game Scene
Elan vs. Dopefish

4. You cannot re-submit an entry previously submitted to an IA competition.

5. Do not use spoilers. It makes the judge's job that much harder, and they may do you harm.

6. Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.

7. Please do not quote images. The entry/name will suffice.

Good luck!

Just PC games. We had one devoted to just Nintendo earlier. This is for PC.

Any computer games are fine. If you wanted to have Minesweeper THE CHARACTER! that'd be fine. I just used old PC game examples because that's what I'm more familiar with.

Pardon me, I only played Halo once, and it was a long time ago, on a PC. But perhaps I got it confused with another old, futuristic FPS game as well.

Heyas, if anyone cares, some big fans of Commander Keen made some very high quality, full-leveled additions. Now we have CK 7 and 8. They focus around him trying to finally defeat Mortimer.

The final 9th, where it is assumed the final confrontation takes place, is apparently in production.

You can't tell them from the officials, and in some ways they're even more advanced.

Anyone here ever play the Hugo line of parser adventures? Hugo's House of Horrors... think it's the third comp game I ever played. Remember my mom thinking it might be too violent as there are like a million ways to horribly die... in like 10 pixels.

Before that I think was Captain Comic. Came out in 1988. I was, what, 5?

Edit: Never played it, but that is some nice work right there, HH.

Not so, I never entered a single avatar and I judged for years before Roland passed along the running of it to me.

Super dark33 has been a commentator to several now, so he's not a complete newbie to the competitions. I won't be biased on that.

Recaiden inquired first however, so it's his decision to judge or wait.

I also would like a reminder on how much OotS style something needs to be. Assuming no people, would it just done with the simple-ish line drawing style of the OotS backgrounds, or could there be more detail in it? I've got a great idea of what I'd like to do, but I want clarification before starting.

Certainly, and if they aren't then BMW is without doubt (And thus rather neatly includes almost the full cast from both Fate/SN+HA and Tsukihime+MB).

Probably depends on the interactivity, if you can't really interact with the "game" then it becomes more of a virtual-novel or a film.
From this reason I would call Utawarerumono (visual novel with obligatory tactical rpg elements) a game, while I'd not call Umineko no Naku Koro ni (visual/sound novel without interactivity - at least as far as I've come) a such thing.
Not really a black and white distinction for the category as a whole...

And of course it depends on if the visual novel was released to PC or to console. :smalltongue:

and how it is with the theme Crosover?
I've thought it to be an intersection of two games ...
or it may be the intersection of comics and games (oots.cy) or play a movie?

Since Sam&Max and day of the tentacle are two different games, I suppose it counts as a crossover. I know they used to be sold together but I don't think the characters actually met in game.

There were three versions of this spell -to freeze one unit, row of units and all enemies -that's probably the first one.

...wow, the month is nearly done and i haven't done a single picture for this. Guess it's not meant to be. >_>

Neither have I, maybe OpenCanvas is cursed with a procrastination curse? :smalltongue:

I am actually in the middle of a picture, Hope nobody mind a Kamina reference in a Civilization picture. It's technically not impossible.

Ragnarok Online <3. That brings back such fond memories of hours wasted in Payon Cave 5 waiting for moonie to spawn, and never getting her card to drop.

Why Spearman always Beats Tank
http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/6339/kaminaspearman12.png

I hope artistic freedom cover this, the spearmen never remove their helmets in game so this scene couldn't actually happen but...

PS: I apologise for the shading on Spearman!Kamina but the screen is rather dark on my art computer and I only realised it when I was entirely done and the amount of stuff I want to draw (and totally not laziness, no sir.) stops me from attempting to redo it.

Awwww maaaaan. Just when I get a bunch of good ideas, too :smallfrown: For those interested, here's what I wrote down last night:- Gordon Freeman bashing Companion Cube.
- Alistair (from LoL) vs. Portal turret.
- Portal fall then smack into ground.
- Might and Magic fire continent.
Also: Whoa, whacky wheels. I remember that, but I have no idea when or where I ever played it.

Best OotPC is obviously Haley as Laura Croft from the Tomb Raider series (I mean, Half-Halfling used the same image he submitted for that category, and won second place with).

Best Crossover has Roy, Haley, and Belkar holding weapons from a famous team deathmatch game whose name currently escapes me. It is either Quake or Unreal Tournament.

Best Game Scene contain quips from games. The first place one I don't recognize, and the second is part of a horrible English translation of a Japanese space-opera game that became a viral video on YouTube. The third is from Portal, obviously.

Best Rookie Entry: Worms.

Really? I thought they ported it to Windows when they open-sourced and abandoned the engine years ago. Shows how little I know. However, there have been a number of games on the Mac platform with cult followings, like Glider, and Escape Velocity. Most of them were eventually ported to Windows, and I recommend checking them out, if only for "History of Gaming" sake.

The games I went with typically premiered on something other than MS-DOS or Windows (Lemmings -> Amiga, Lode Runner -> Apple II). But you've got to admit that most people associate modern PC gaming with Windows so the reverse time progression makes sense.

'Associate'? :smallconfused:

Three systems I used (ModernNT, aka XP/Vista/7, 95/98, and DOS) each have more games on them than all other OS or whole console lines combined :smallsigh:

Only if you count all consoles bearing logo of Nintendo or Sony as one you'll get anywhere close to these numbers, but then, they each span decades, while these OSes merely years.
