Battlefront Action

September 30, 2004

I must have just missed Pickle last night. I got a chance to play a few rounds with Pretzel and Infected Zero and we had a great time. We had one of the closest matches I have ever been in. It was actually down to 1 respawn each. I went ahead and secured the win by loading up in a tank and wasting the opponent. I think he got out of the tank to have a fair mano a mano fight, but I wasn’t going to have any of that fair fight business.

I scored the last copy of Katamari Damacy from EB Huebner yesterday and I apologize to the few people that wanted it that came in looking for it. I haven’t had a chance to play it, but I heard the rumors that it was going to be a very tough game to find as stock was disappearing at a rapid pace. It looked like it was right up my alley so I snagged it. I will let you know what you are missing out on. You might check your local Fry’s or give EB and Gamestop a call. You may get lucky and $19.99 is a sweet price for a new game.

Tired Dots

September 29, 2004

Let me tell you a thing or two about babies…

Once they start crawling you get really tired. Really, really tired.

I wish that I had a bunch of Pikmin to follow the baby around and keep him out of trouble, from bumping his head against the coffee table, from chewing dog toys, from pulling the cat’s tail… you get what I mean.

This brings me to the official announcment of the ‘Dots Asks: What would you do if you had a bunch of Pikmin to follow your every command?’ Contest. Submit you entries in the forum and the winner will be awarded a brand spanking new copy of the ever so addicting Pikmin 2.

Maybe I just like to boss people around.

Mad mad props

September 29, 2004

Mad props to Khaine and Underscore from our forums for gaming with us at night. The crew here usually gets together at about 10:00 our time which in the U.K. is about 5 in the morning, so the Europe SB Crew puts on their alarms to get up and game. Dedication equals community and that is what we are all about, I cannot thank you guys enough for your support and friendship.

Hero Contest again

September 29, 2004

We are going to read through these, you guys are freaks. Freaks I tell you. Creative uber geniuses molded from that of lesser geniuses, and put together in some creative geniuses lab.


Give us a bit of time we will get this rolling.

Hero Contest submissions

September 29, 2004

We have all the submissions and boy are some of these long. I have a feeling that it is going to take us a little bit longer than normal to pick a winner. After all, it is going to take a few hours just to read through all these entries. I will give you an update as we get closer to picking a winner.

In the meantime, I want to announce a new short contest. This contest is quite simple and the prize is a copy of Pikmin 2 for the Gamecube. If you had 100 Pikmin at your command for an entire day, what would you have them do?

I will get the official banner and info online later today, but for now you can either post your submissions in the [url=]official thread[/url] or you can email them to me at [email protected]

Make sure that the subject line of the email is ‘Pikmin 2 Contest’.
