CB10: Outer Haven, Round 1, Battle 4

By Brian on June 25th, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 20An easy win for Revolver Ocelot was to be expected. A close battle between the two Octopuses was also to be expected, and true to form--it was. Laughing Octopus held on to win, though, winning by 2 votes over Decoy. Our 3 people tied at the top still remain at the top, nailing these two battles to extend their win streak to 18 straight battles. One of you is going to blink at some point. When it happens, no one knows. Probably won't get a leaderboard update tonight, but you'll likely get one tomorrow. With that all said, we move along.

We are not gonna die. You know why? Because we are so...very...pretty.

Flight ControlOne of the most important things a mobile phone should do is play video games. Sure, it should probably be pretty good at contacting other people over the new fangled wireless telephone exchange too, however I am starting to think being a great gaming device should be equally as vital. What's wrong with the $250 PSP Go and the sparkling pink DSi you ask? Simple; you never have them with you when the true need for a portable game arises. Most portable games should be addictive time wasters for when meetings are canceled or the bus is late, those unexpected minutes in the day that you have nothing better to do in. And that's why the iPhone (and iPod Touch) is primed to take the mobile space by storm because it's always with you, ready and waiting.

Flight Control is the perfect example of a great portable time waster. It's your job to manage the incoming flux of jets, biplanes and helicopters, guiding them to their appropriate runway or pad without causing a midair collision. The game controls incredibly naturally, asking you to guide the aircrafts by drawing flight paths with your finder and the goal is simply to rack up the biggest high score that you can taunt your friends with. With the ability to upload scores to online leader boards and use your iPod music without intrusive game noises, flight control is incredibly addictive and has tones of charm for a recession busting 59p.

CB10: Outer Haven, Round 1, Battle 2

By Brian on June 24th, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 18As we bid farewell to the first quarter of the contest, things are actually looking pretty good as we head into the second half of the first round. Joshie, determined to throw the whole contest into chaos, was hoping for a victory for Laughing Gray, the monkey fighting against Naked Snake. Joshie--only ONE person chose Laughing Gray to win, and it wasn't you. Don't throw the contest into chaos because you wanted a monkey. You tried, but Naked Snake won by 2 votes. :) Victories by Drebin and Naked Snake end the Virtuous Division's opening round, and with those wins, we have THREE people who have now entered the All-16 Club, the group of entrants who have accomplished the feat of getting every battle correct in a division's opening round. With these three new entrants, this now brings the total number of people who've accomplished this to 10. Joshie is the only person who has done this twice. However, a big huge congratulations to the three who've done it in this contest! Let's see if the streak continues--so far, the record for number of consecutive battles sits at 31. Good luck in the second half of the first round--leaderboard to be up shortly. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here.
