Last night I returned home from PAX AUS 2014. Long story short, it wasn't perfect, but it was quite possibly the best weekend I've had this year. It was a lot of fun. If you'd like to continue reading, the long story is just below. Buckle up. This is gonna be...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Our 100th Haiku Fridays!

Posted on Friday, July 22 @ 23:09:59 Eastern by

No, no, no. Do we look like we go around with Benjamins in our pockets? Here, you want to know what's in my wallet? F***ing wine bottle labels. I'm like the guy from Catch Me If You Can. Ah-bag-nay-lee? Is that how you say his name? Sh**.

Look, that's not what I'm here to discuss. Sliverstorm pointed out to me yesterday that today is our ONE HUNDREDTH Haiku Fridays. Wow! We've had some turnover, we've made some changes, but ultimately, people still show up for free stuff. Yes, yes, we know that's why you're here. We've long known why our traffic spikes on Fridays. We've been trying to spread it out and get you folks to visit again after the weekend is over... you know, maybe see what's up with video games again. Frankly, we keep giving out prizes to the best haikus because we love poetry.

As much as I'd like to announce that GameRevolution was making the switch to an all haiku website, complete with haiku reviews, previews, news, and haiku tradeshow coverage, that's not the case. We'll keep delivering you all of the latest information on video games, as well as critical, unbiased reviews and to-the-point previews. Whether you visit for the free stuff or not.

That said, let's get on to the matter at hand. Because this marks a very special Haiku Fridays, we've got a special prize worked up for you dear readers. The grand prize will remain a mystery until a winner has been decided. Just know that it's awesome.

I did say grand prize for a reason. We'll be choosing three runners-up for slightly less ostentatious prizes. They will also, nonetheless, be awesome. Here's the catch: you'll be choosing the winner!

Thus, your mission, should you choose to write a poem about video games, is to write a haiku about a video game character. ANY video game character. Slap that baby down in the comments section and be back here on Monday to see if you made the cut and to vote on the finalists!

TL;DR

  • We've hit our 100th Haiku Fridays contests!
  • Four haiku writers will win this week!
  • We'll post four finalists on Monday, and readers will choose the grand prize winner of those four!
  • Write a haiku about any video game character...
  • WIN STUFF!
Got it? Please only write one haiku! If you write more than one, we'll hate you! I can't say that'll help your chances.... With so much winning to be done, I couldn't possibly restrain your creativity.
