Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

edited August 2009 in PAX Archive
HEY GUYS! PAX 3DAY PASSES ARE SOLD OUT! BYOC IS SOLD OUT! HERES A CHANCE TO WIN BOTH OF THOSE + EXTRAS

WOO ITS THAT TIME AGAIN!

This is now an annual thing for me. Just something I enjoy doing to help someone get into PAX that results in lols for the rest of us :D

THE PRIZE!
A PAX 3day pass
A BYOC Seat located in one of the best spots, GL-15
The use of a machine for BYOC (see 3rd post) if the winner doesn't want to (or is unable to) bring their own rig for PAX.e
Garunteed entry into the BYOC "My Little Pwnie" Contest


THE CONTEST:

Make a video telling us why you deserve to get into PAX and BYOC for free over others doing this contest
Note: you have to be in the video at some point
(nothing lame like a flash of your picture, you have to be in it for a decent length of time, id say a minimum of a few seconds... like 30ish... and you have to be speaking)

To the panel of judges the video needs to be:
Funny
Creative
Semi-Original

You wont know who the judges are (other than me), but the majority of us enjoy internet humor :P
(Judges who ive chosen please don't identify yourselves)

To submit your video:

Upload it to youtube (or any other video site) and link it here
Or PM me the link
Or if you are super shy, I can provide you with an FTP server to upload it to (but if you end up in the top 3 im uploading it to youtube and posting it here :P)

Also none of us are offended by bad language, keep it within the forum rules here though.

ALL VIDEOS NEED TO BE IN ON/BY AUGUST 23RD
We will announce the top 3 on the 24th. Winner on the 25th

BigRed on

    The Main Video is too Dark so I went back today to get more footage.

    Also I have to rotate the Main video, its uploading now, then I will post, I could post the original, but my friend who's driving with me said he almost vomited (although he coulda just turned the monitor lol).

    Edit: Alright Here's the action, the rotating is all the editing skills I'm amount to muster up (reads:none).

    Update: Ill be able to include the use of a machine again this year for BYOC so you dont have to bring your own machine if you dont want to.

    Just like last year, its not a high end machine but it will play all the games decently :)

    Specs:

    Athlon x2 2.7ghz
    2gb RAM
    ATI 4670 Video card
    22" Widescreen Samsung LCD

    Can we all post videos on behalf of VT? That worked pretty well last year :P

    Also keep in mind this is open to everyone... Even if you already have a pax pass and/or BYOC pass, you can enter. The only condition is if you already have those you will have to promise to give them to a friend so they can go to PAX as well :P

    Someone on IRC or the Forums would probably know about this contest and be making a video, one would think.

    that doesn't mean I know any of these people good enough for them to loan me a camera. It's fine though, I had a funny picture idea, but it got shot down. Discussion over.

    Methinks the shark doth underestimate the generosity inherent in the nature of his fellow PAXers.

    Video cuts off before the end. Audio out of sync. Horrible Elizabethian English.
