I said we'd do it again, and so we are! HOWEVER.
This one has a theme, people of BZPower! And that theme is....
That's right - for THE BEST EVER 2, only Nintendo Characters are allowed (do not worry this will not be for every future tournament). Now, as the final two of the previous tournament, Samus and Link are guaranteed the #1 and #2 positions respectively, meaning there are 30 more characters to be decided upon.
In the comments of this entry, you may nominate three characters. If you notice that a character you would have nominated was already selected by someone else, do not vote or nominate that character again. There will be a preliminary voting round to decide the placement of each character, since there are sure to be more than 30 nominations.
What're you waiting for, eh? GET NOMINATING! (And don't forget to mention the series the character originates from)
Current Placements:
  • Samus (Metroid)
  • Link (The Legend of Zelda)

Samus took down her rival Link in the final round, with a total count of 7-5 votes. Samus is undoubtedly the undisputed champion of this tournament, having easily overcome her previous opponents The Kid, The Pyro, GlaDOS, and Sonic the Hedgehog with ease.
Stay tuned; perhaps we'll do this again sometime soon.   B-)

Here we are! So sorry for the delay. All you get this time is the picture bracket - I found a rather nifty piece of fan art that depicted our final two combatants (even on the right sides of the picture for the bracket!) and decided to use it.  :) That said... (click for bigger):

It's Samus, placed #3, and Link, placed #12, in a Nintendo-dominated final round! Samus emerged victorious over Sonic with ease, while Link admittedly struggled a little to beat Mega Man. But here we are - now, vote!

We're down to the final round! Another picture bracket, another text bracket.
Click the picture for a bigger version, as always.

#3 Samus Aran (Metroid) vs. #6 Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog)
#12 Link (The Legend of Zelda) vs. #13 Mega Man (Mega Man) 
Sonic dominated over Count Bleck to advance, and Link did the same to Mario. Mega Man managed to advance after beating Master Chief by a fair margin, and Samus overtook GlaDOS at the last second to push into the penultimate round. Vote for one character in each matchup - who will make it to the final round?

Round 3 begins! As per usual, both a visual bracket (click for larger!) and a text bracket.
Posted Image
Both GlaDOS and Master Chief emerged victorious from Round 2 with last minute tiebreakers, eliminating Wheatley and Gordon Freeman from the running. Link took every single vote in his bracket, dominating Ghirahim, and Samus received double the votes of the Pyro to move on. 
#2 GlaDOS (Portal) vs. #3 Samus Aran (Metroid)
#6 Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog) vs. #8 Count Bleck (Paper Mario)
#9 Mario (Super Mario) vs. #12 Link (The Legend of Zelda)
#13 Mega Man (Mega Man) vs. #18 John-117/Master Chief (Halo)
We're down to the final eight! Pick one character from each selection to vote for the winner!

And so Round 2 begins! Less matchups, more firepower! First off, another bracket for you all to enjoy (you can once again click it for a larger version):

And now the matchups in text:
#1 Wheatley (Portal) vs. #2 GlaDOS (Portal)
#3 Samus Aran (Metroid) vs. #4 The Pyro (Team Fortress 2)
#6 Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog) vs. #28 Geo Stelar (Mega Man Star Force)
#7 Riku (Kingdom Hearts) vs. #8 Count Bleck (Paper Mario)
#9 Mario (Super Mario) vs. #10 Pit (Kid Icarus)
#12 Link (The Legend of Zelda) vs. #22 Ghirahim (The Legend of Zelda)
#13 Mega Man (Mega Man) vs. #14 Mewtwo (Pokemon)
#17 Gordon Freeman (Half-Life) vs. #18 John-117/Master Chief (Halo)
Geo Stelar and Ghirahim both won their Round 1 matchups at the last second; Master Chief came back from behind to win his Round 1 matchup; and Wheatley, GlaDOS, Samus and Mega Man blasted through Round 1 with ease. You can again vote for one character from each matchup to determine the winner!

THE BEST EVER - Preliminary Voting

Posted by Tex , in Video Games Sep 19 2013 · 73 views

Alright folks, so here's the deal: we have the following ten characters confirmed in so far:
  • Wheatley (Portal)
  • GlaDOS (Portal)
  • Samus Aran (Metroid)
  • The Pyro (Team Fortress 2)
  • The Sniper (Team Fortress 2)
  • Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog)
  • Riku (Kingdom Hearts)
  • Count Bleck (Paper Mario)
  • Mario (Super Mario)
  • Neku Sakuraba (The World Ends With You)
  • Pit (Kid Icarus)
So in short, eleven out of thirty-two confirmed and placed accordingly. That means we still have 21 characters out of the remaining 26 that need to be added into the remaining slots. So with this post, place your votes for up to 8 CHARACTERS (one vote per character per person) from the following list: the five with the least votes will be eliminated from the running alongside Thomas.

  • Gordon Freeman (Half-Life)
  • John Marston (Red Dead Redemption)
  • Link (The Legend of Zelda)
  • Mewtwo (Pokemon)

  • Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin's Creed)
  • John-117/Master Chief (Halo)
  • Isaac Clarke (Dead Space)
  • The Kid (Bastion)
  • Meat Boy (Super Meat Boy)
  • Tim (Braid)
  • Dr. Nefarious (Ratchet & Clank)

Make your votes in the comments starting... NOW.

So here's the deal: Burnmad and I have decided that we're curious to find out who you all would select as the best video game character of all time, but with some style. Here's the deal:
We have 32 slots open. In the comments, post your favourite characters (we'll allow you up to four). If someone has already put in a character that you would normally pick, that's perfectly fine - just let us know that you're adding a vote to that character. If we receive more than 32 submissions, then we'll start ranking the characters with regards to the number of votes they received. Hopefully we can fill the slots and begin the real voting within the next two days.
With that said, begin! Any questions, just ask away.
EDIT: Also, please when you say a character, give us the game or series they belong to as well.
EDIT 2: Alright, I'll leave this entry open for one more day and then we'll start cutting some characters away. As it stands right now, any character with at least two votes will be guaranteed a position in the slots, while those with only one vote will have to beat each other to the death to get in. 


Smash Files 6 - Bowser Profile

Posted by Tex , in Smash Files, Video Games Jun 17 2013 · 492 views

And so here we are with Bowser. If you don't know who this fellow is, then you are not a video game fan. You might not like the series, but every video game nerd knows Bowser.

Bowser Profile
Posted ImageDid somebody page the King of Awesome?
Species: Koopa
Series: Super Mario
First Appearance: Super Mario Bros. (NES, 1985)
Latest Appearance: New Super Mario Bros. U (WiiU, 2012)

# of Appearances: 70+

1st Party

Favourite Appearance: Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (DS, 2009)

Known For: Kidnapping Peach, taking over the Mushroom Kingdom, taking over Dinosaur Land, taking over the Galaxy, stealing the Star Rod, losing his castle, having an ego, making his minions shave, being beaten by Mario, and helping the Mario Bros. to defeat other villains

Excitement Factor: 6/10. I don’t play as Bowser much in Melee or Brawl, mainly because I dislike being a big target and a slow target. At the moment, I haven’t seen Bowser in action enough yet to tell whether I’ll enjoy playing as him more in the upcoming games with the new changes.

just for fun
