Banjo’s Mecha Yoshi Challenge – Yoshi made in Nuts & Bolts

March 4, 2010

After all the press Mario was getting last week with all the new footage from his next outing, poor Banjo started feeling dejected and realised that if he’s to keep pace he needs his very own Yoshi!

As with before, peruse the entries and then vote for the three you think most accurately replicate the hungry dinosaur.

Banjo’s envy for the portly plumber is potentially damaging, his personal experiences with mushrooms have been interesting…

Some appropriate music;

Video Game Music Videos that are actually good!

February 21, 2010

Wow that’s a long title. Anyway, I’ve spent too much of today pouring over New Super Mario Bros Wii’s marketing strategy and loads of gubbins about Glocal, yes ‘glocal’, markets. So here are some pretty good video game music videos robbed from GRcade’s Game of the Decade thread of the four finalists!

Either of them would have an argument as the winner, and it will be interesting to see the forum explode at the eventual conclusion, it’s been one hell of a journey. Thanks Skippy.

Yarr! The Jolly Roger re-imagined Nuts & Bolts style.

February 18, 2010

Banjo’s Jolly Roger construction challenge

This week’s replica challenge was to get Banjo nautical in a pirate ship based as much as possible on Captain Hook’s famous lost boy frightener, crocodile fast food vender the Jolly Roger.

Image

As with before, peruse the entries and then vote for the three you think most accurately replicate the threatening appearance of the ship by heading over to the thread here.

Here we find Banjo pictured with his good friend Wilson, stranded on an island and separated from his friends. Wanting to travel back to the island in style he will need a ship worthy of his captain like intellect.

Here’s some piratey music to check out the images to –

February 11, 2010

As part of the week 3 challenges, the competitors of the GRcade Nuts and Bolts amazo- tournament were asked to re-create the Normandy from Mass Effect.

The Banjormandy construction challenge

This week’s replica challenge was to honour Captain Shepard and the crew of the Normandy by creating the iconic craft in Nuts & Bolts’ vehicle creator.

As with before, peruse the entries and then vote for the three you think most accurately capture the elegant beauty of this sci fi beast.

Banjo, deciding he wants to mingle with alien life, decides he needs a vehicle to match. Who better to copy than Xbox favourite, Captain Shepard!

Great Scott! Those dimwits over at the Banjo Kazooie tourney thingy have attempted to recreate my time machine! Do they know what they’re doing!? I don’t believe it!

They’re trying to make the Delorean!

Image

Well, I’m certainly far too busy to judge them, far, far too busy, so it’s up to you people of this silly little interweb forum to make up your mind, you can vote for three of them that you think embody my brilliant creation! Listen to the best music ever written, and then judge!

The Grand GRcade Nuts and Bolts amazo-tournament!

January 11, 2010

Own Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts? Why not come play a tournament!

http://www.grcade.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15935

Over a year since release I am setting about hosting a tournament for this underappreciated game, and it should cater for many people and not just those who excel at specific areas.

And here’s how it’s going down, the tournament will feature three different weekly tasks, maybe a fourth if it’s a success, two of which can be worked at over time and one live multiplayer session a week (day to be decided via poll), standing will equal points (ten for first, eight for second, six for third etc.), and points will contribute to your leaderboard standing for which there will be a total leaderboard and individual task leaderboards.

-The Tasks

Task 1 – Mad Cap Multiplayer
Every week there will be a tournament featuring two sporting events and two races, two LOGS choice and two with custom vehicles. The challenges will be decided through un-bias means each week and the two custom events shall be announced before hand as well, giving you a chance to craft a suitable vehicle. At the end of the games points will be tallied and overall tournament points awarded for relative positions.

Task 2 – Replica
An additional task each week will ask for you to create a replica of something else using the vehicle creator that will then go to the forum’s vote over the following week. What will need to be created as the replica will be decided by an unbias source, and the entries will need to be in by a set time each week, with voted positions adding points to the overall tournament table.

Task 3 – Challenge challenge
This task will ask players to compete for a single player high score each week on a specific challenge chosen through random methods with everyone’s position attributing to how many tournament points they earn.

– How to enter!
-Join the forum
Task 1 – Turn up at the right time, play, win.

Task 2 – Create your replica in the game then use the screenshot tool to take a piccie, locate it at the game’s website, then pm it to myself before the finish time and I will collect the entries and present them to the forum for voting.

Task 3 – Find out in the thread, make sure you’re on my friends list, then I’ll be able to see at the end of the week who wins!

– What do I need to do before all this kicks off?

Well, finishing the game is a good starting point and finding all the crates will give you a leg up in the construction competitions as you’ll have more things to play around with (this goes for jinjo bingo rewards as well).
Also, practise makes perfect, so get on and work on your darts and flying abilities, as well as checking out the rewind feature that appears in online races.

– How long and what’s in it for me?
There’s nothing up for grabs, apart from prestige right now and as for how long we’re going on for? Preliminary length will be two months, but we’ll see how it goes.
