I'd like to introduce you to our judges...

(Judges pending. The final lineup may change.)

This week's theme is Nintendo.

You may also have characters from OotS cosplay (dress up) as nintendo characters.

And of course, there is going to be a First through Third place of the following:

Best Character(s)
Best OotS Character(s)
and the Best Overall

And don't forget the Wukei's Choice Award to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to your host.

Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.
Also mention who you've done, and from what game.

IE:
Best Character
Kerri from Degenerate Slayers

(Not available yet, should be coming out with the Wii)
(Image done by Gorbash Kazdar)

Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
However, you may submit old creations. It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

All entries must be completed by Saturday, August 26th, at 12 am EST. That is Friday evening, Saturday morning at midnight.

Too old?! Nintendo's been around since 1889! *;)

More to the point they've been making video games pretty much since there were video games. Maybe this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_games_published_by_Nintendo)'ll help. From one oldster to another.

Not to be argumentative but Atari was the first back in the mid 70's, I believe 1976 to be exact. I got my first 'game console' in like 1985 and had it for about a year before I 'was too old to play video games'. At the age of 36 I have just gotten back into gaming ~ playing only GuildWars (on PC). Guess it is my midlife crisis. So I am a tad old for the venue or genre.

That aside, Thanks for the link. I'll paruse the selection and come up with something. I'll probably pick something, that while it looks neat, no one has heard of.

Thanks again.

EDIT: To avoid further confusion...I guess what I am saying is that console gaming isn't my thing and I feel I have out grown it. That being what it is I used your link and found something interesting, though I don't know the popularity of it so don't know if anyone will recognize the avies I make. :-/

Not to be argumentative right back, but you're only a year or so older than me. I never stopped playing video games, as there's no such thing as too old for them. My first console was the Atari and I never looked back. Really wish I had any Avataristic talent at all. You'd totally be seeing something from the original Nintendo. Loved Top Gun, but I don't know how anyone could make an avatar from it.

Phew... been disconnected from internet for the last few days (I was moving) and I was afraid that somebody would beat me to this:

Best Characters

Who else? The cutest couple in video game history (IMO): Mario and Peach

http://www.geocities.com/oblivion017/GiantITP/Nintendo/Mario.gif http://www.geocities.com/oblivion017/GiantITP/Nintendo/Peach.gif

And... Best OoTS Characters

The obvious choice for me: Elan and Haley as the Super Couple

I started it, but it was late and I was tired so I gave up, and now, with something I could never compete with in the ring, there's just no point... Nah, but all my artistic pizazz seems to have been leeched into assignment work, so I'll just sit back and admire... love the Links and Pikachus, they're utterly awesome! And the Pooncess and the Little Red Italian, of course. Anyone gonna go a Bowser family portrait?

Sorry Tomb Raven but first, you can't enter the same avatar for two different contests (mostly since this one already won in Sci-Fi I think) and second, if I'm not mistaken, the contest ended last Friday. ;)

At least that's what I think Wukei would say... :P

Yeah, that's SOAD. Love that song.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda_series#Cultural_influence

Joe Pleiman created a song parody of the main Zelda theme. The song is commonly misattributed to System of a Down for various reasons.

2006-08-28, 06:32 PM
Oh. Nevermind then.

UnrealTiger
2006-08-28, 09:29 PM
Don't worry too much about it, many, many people make that mistake because some guy who shared it over kazaa or somesuch file sharing program labelled the song as by SoaD and that version was the one everyone downloaded everywhere so that's why people think SoaD made it.

It was actually made by a band called The Rabbit Joint (see here (http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00022/)) and it appears that the file sharing program in question was Napster.

UPDATE: This contest just closed last Saturday, so expect results probably next weekend (a week and a half from now). We have two other contests to get the results out for, but I think by next weekend, the backlog should be cleared and awards will be out on all pending contests.

Oh, and I'll be starting up a new contest in the next couple days! Wukei is a bit busy right now for reasons involving art and real life.
