Yes you should. But not as high as you currently are.

I'm not sure about giving non-participants a 0, though. That's a bit too much of a gap.

Maybe no submission = half last place points?

Here's mine:



I was kinda drunk when I did this. Not sure if I'll have time to do another one by the deadline tomorrow so it may have to do. The sound loses sync as the video progresses for some reason. Oh well, fuck it.

Nice run Smile Beer and rum certainly helped me out in my first couple of runs. Is it bad when a game drives you to drinking? Razz There's only a few hours left but my advice to anyone left(like the 10+ people as well who didn't do challenge #1), for this one, try and use Donny all the way to the swimming part. Once there, all the turtles are basically the same.

Would you mind youtube-ing the winning video, and possibly a couple more (not necessarily 2nd and 3rd, maybe just a really creative one or something so that it's significantly different from the 1st place one). That would be great!

How high am I if I am not on the list?

Oh, and for a ranking system...

my suggestion:

1st Place: 10 points
2nd Place: 8 points
3rd Place: 7 points
4th Place: 6 points
Anyone who submitted a video of the completed task: 5 points
Anyone who submitted a video but did not complete the task: 2 point
Anyone who did not submit a video: 0 points

So, my thought is that first place would get double the number of points of someone who competed, but didn't place in the top 4. 2nd through 4th give enough points that they allow for place changing as the rounds continue. Those who are able to make it through one of the challenges and submit it would be at 5 points. That should be considered the baseline. So at the end of the competition 10 challenges, those who competed but sucked would be at a 50. Those who were great would be in the 80s-90s. Some credit would be given to those who at least turned in something, but no credit would be issued to those who didn't participate.

Sorry about leaving you out and sorry usa for the typo.
I just threw a point system together I'm gonna do some thinking tonight. I like the idea but in no challenge rounds such as this weeks the 2 point system for not completeing wouldn't work. It would just be an automatic 5 points if you tried. I'll get it together tonight.
I'll also post Not Sure's run, as there was not anything drastically "OUT THERE" except getting the white sword instead.

~Pinbot~
From the pits of hell Syd has choosen to curse you all with this. If you have a kitten, a little bro/sis or a g/f, don't play this around them. You will most likely kill them in frustration.

So you can visualize my point here is a run I tried.

High Score wins. Good Luck to all of you...except Not Sure.

Oooo, a pinball game, how nice to see something different from that absolute abomination called TMNT(the game, not the 3D movie). Maybe this time I can actually GET A FUCKING VIDEO CLIP SENT IN!

Still, pinball, how unorthodox. I hardly ever even played REAL pinball games. I was expecting Contra or something. Not that I'm not expecting that still, but this is an interesting change. Must go download!


I want you all to repeat after me:

I just reread this.

I did try the zelda competition, I never got a final run done though. I posted a video (we had a dicussion about it and if it was a good idea to post it). Also I did submit a finished run for turtles.

Since Not Sure used the wooden sword, I thought I'd go ahead and post my Zelda run with the white sword. Not sure if I should post it here or on that thread. But since the other has been inactive for a few days, I'll post it here. I can move it later if I need to.

Woah... I didn't know it could be done that fast with the white sword. Neat.
