CB10: Outer Haven, Round 1, Battle 12

By Brian on July 1st, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 28And an upset indeed--Gene from Metal Gear: Portable Ops knocks out the #3 seed, Major Zero, winning by a single vote--not a tiebreaker--on LJ. I've never played Portable Ops, so I can't say whether I thought it was a good game or if Gene was a worthy character, but to knock out the main antagonist of the entire Metal Gear series? Wow. However, 4 or 5 people actually benefitted from the upset, so, nicely done to those. To the other 10 or 11 of us, many at the top will get hit with their 2nd loss of the contest. Gene will be up against The Fury in the 2nd round, who won extremely easily over the other character from Portable Ops--Jonathan. So before we press onto the next couple of battles, I want to remind everyone that the first half of this contest ends this Friday night--Round 1 comes to an end, and with it, we'll take a weekend break, which is just as well, since many of us won't be around for the 4th of July/Independence Day weekend anyway. A halftime podcast will be recorded, so whoever wants in, let's talk and make plans. I've said all I've needed to tonight, so battle on. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here.

Communism is the very definition of failure!

Like a goldfish looking through the glass at the cat patiently waiting to eat it when the owner isn't looking, I couldn't help but feel slightly afraid of Madam Panada, the shop keeper in Fallout 3: Point Lookout. Maybe this video will explain the nightmares I have about this woman better than any written word could.

Without a doubt this is my favorite expansion to Fallout 3 yet and if you don't wish to splash the cash on them all, I highly recommend picking this up over the rest. Not only does Point Lookout have it's own (short) narrative set of quests, but there are many side missions to explore, all set in a new open landscape that includes a run down amusement park and board walk, a vast swamp, Victorian mansions, military base and a highly suspicious light house. Unlike the previous, more linear downloadable content, Point Lookout feels and plays much closer to the original game, providing a whole new location to explore should you grow tired of the capital wastes. With many memorable characters, religious cults and treasures awaiting, Point Lookout is without question a must buy.

Battle 26I'm impressed. Either you just didn't notice or you did and didn't say anything--the last battle before the weekend break, which was marked as The Fury vs. Gustava, was an incorrect image. The image I had in place for The Fury was actually The Fear. Luckily, this did not screw up the results or the leaderboard. So, while the next battle is marked on your brackets as Jonathan (MPO) vs. The Fear, this battle will actually be Jonathan (MPO) vs. The Fury, with The Fury as the 14-seed. If you have your brackets printed or saved on your computer, switch the places of The Fear and The Fury--they're close enough in the seeding to really not make a difference. However, it didn't matter in the last 2 battles because Fatman and Solidus took the win. With that mess sorted out, we move on. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here. Also, we WILL have a leaderboard tonight--in the last 4 battles, the streaks of Zack and Liam came to an end--with Zack missing on Screaming/Psycho Mantis and Liam missing on Fatman/The Pain, they finally pick up their first losses of the contest. With Liam getting 22 straight battles correct before a first miss, that's an awesome, awesome feat. There's still time for those who have some streak of their own--but not much time left--to see if they can tackle the record: 31 consecutive battles won, held by MoonSword. Alright, enough from me. Play on. Here's the leaderboard after Day 12.
