EDIT: I have already ran this by Fernin and he says, and I quote "This is seemingly different enough from the championship that it shouldn't cause problems"

Sign-up's updated: 3/24/2011 10:57am CST

Welcome to the Video Game Olympics.

You may enter as many or as few events as you want.

For the first round there are 10 events you may choose from to compete against your fellow Sydlexians. The theme for round 1 is points. Just like the old days of Galaga, Pac-Man, and Donkey Kong, You will be competing for the highest score of all.

Each round of the VGO will have a list of events all following a similar theme.

Please pay CLOSE attention to the rules for each event, as they differ from one another.

Sign-up's for Round 1 will start NOW and continue until Thursday March 31, 2011.
Submissions for each event will be accepted starting NOW until Friday April 8, 2011.

sounds like a good idea, zero, but make the signups 2 weeks instead of just 1 week. just my 2 cents.

im waiting to see how the turn out is, if it doesnt build up enough ill move the deadlines and go from there. I wasnt sure what to make the deadline so I just ballparked it and figured id get feedback on it Razz

I guess ill wait till the end of today and see what everyone thinks about that username, and if the concensus is the same ill make it two weeks with 3 weeks for submissions.

Sign me up for all of them. I'll probably suck at most of them, but I know I'll find my niche somewhere.

So we have one week (well, two) to do what we want in some of those games? Somehow I think some of these won't have many sign-ups from lack of free time.

Anyway, I'll try 1-1, 1-3, 1-4, 2-2, 2-3 and 2-4.

I may join some of these, but I have a very important question.

How soon after I win an event will I be able to add a gold medal to my avatar? I'm assuming there's a waiting period. 3 months? 6? A year?

Well I have never tried one of these contests before but sign me up for both Nes Mario Games, (although I think having 2 Mario games and no Mega Man is a bit silly) and Gradius.

I don't know, but I have never gone for a high score while playing Mario 3 before so it seems about as logical to me.
