    I'm gonna have to go with #2.

    I'll admit I was very tempted to go with #3 after last year's amazing take on Early Access, but NES for life.

  • RostaakRostaak Registered User regular
    #2 for me!

  • japerryjaperry Registered User regular
    2! =D

  • TOGSolidTOGSolid Drunk sailor Seattle, WashingtonRegistered User regular
    #3 would be funny if the final product ended up being only half a badge and it was delivered a day or two late.

    I kinda like the idea for #1. Bonus points for it being PAX Realms since Star Realms has become the new PA crack :D

    All of them sound amazing, though I like #1 quite a bit

    Love seeing this thread pop up every year, makes West feel that much closer.

    #2 is my vote.

    Current polls show #2 being the firm favourite with 72% of votes going its way. Pulling up second is #1 with 19% and trailing in third is #3. Votes close on 6th July 2017 at 8pm British Summer Time. At which point the top two selections will be chosen and two prototypes will be developed and posted here. Then another round of voting for those two badges and the final one is chosen. After that the designed is honed to perfection and finally printed. Yay for community endeavours!

    A couple of more days to go now. As an aside, being British I don't have the close relationship with the NES as those in North America do as we never really got on with it. The games ran 15% slower in PAL territories and they were really expensive. we preferred the 8 bit computers of the time, especially the ZX Spectrum. So I did a forum badge for a ZX Spectrum 1.99 game that were very popular back in the 1980's:

    This is not the design of the badge! It's just something I knocked up in a few minutes.

    I believe Linus Torvalds had a Sinclair computer at some point.

    Voting is now closed! Totals are as previously reported:

    #1 had 19% of the votes
    #2 had 73% of the votes
    #3 had 8% of the votes

    This means that options 1 and 2 will be developed as prototype badges. I shall be posting these on this thread, please bear with me as I develop them.

    Thank you for participating and supporting this endeavour.

    #2. I like them both, I'm just old and didn't grow up during the Nintendo golden years.

  • nixternixter roughly Portland, ORRegistered User regular
    #1 has a really nice look to it. Good job!

    #1, love it! I also enjoy #2 but it doesn't pull at me the same way.

  • Croatian SensationCroatian Sensation Registered User regular
    #1 for me. That design is amazing!

  • jukkakhanjukkakhan Registered User regular
    #1 is #1 for me!

  • S2000GanS2000Gan Spartan-Rogue Class, Red Squad Bellevue, WARegistered User regular
    I like them both but im gonna vote for 2.
    That being said, if we do go with one i feel like we should parody the nintendo seal instead of using the actual one.

  • TimoonTimoon Occupied Canada Registered User regular
    Like them both too... but #2

  • DashDDashD Dread Pirate Chef Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    #1, for sure.

    "Pointless flavour text nobody reads" is brilliant

  • Garet_JaxGaret_Jax SeattleRegistered User regular

    They're both great though. Awesome work.

  • SolelronSolelron Wandering Gamer Cornelius, ORRegistered User regular
    So much #1 so much!!!

  • jamsyarbotsjamsyarbots Wilmington, DERegistered User regular
    # 1 for sure!

  • IncarnadineIncarnadine Registered User regular
    #2, please. Though a question: is 'Kieth' spelled that way on purpose?

  • Thunderous_TThunderous_T Minneapolis, MNRegistered User regular
    #1 is so awesome!

    Prime 2017: Tickets soon please...
  • anettie76anettie76 OregonRegistered User regular
    #1 preferable, as it's my generation. Although #2 is very creative.


  • punziepunzie Cookie Pimp Registered User regular
    I like #1. But I agree that you probably shouldn't use nintendo's name specifically.

  • kropotkinkropotkin Forum Badge Creator London UKRegistered User regular
    Thanks for the feedback everyone! Just to address the points directly:

    1) Design #1 is a proof of concept, all mentions of Nintendo will be removed on the final design

    2) The spelling of 'Kieth' is an error, sorry!


  • YoungFreyYoungFrey Registered User regular
    Option #1
    Both are great, but 1 wins for me.

  • helen0rzhelen0rz Registered User regular
    both are fantastic, but definitely #1 for me.
