Any game ideas for the next Whiskey Media Scrub League Tournament?


I would like to see some head to head racing in SSX3. Mainly to see tracksuit Coonce commentating on the action while sitting on a snowboard held up by two pretty girls. 

For those who don't know what the Scrub League is...

I'd love to see something team-based. Something that required working together. Team Fortress 2 or something.

I'd love to see Starcraft 2. I want to see creatively bad ways of winning matches in that game.

It would be madness... Very entertaining madness.

Fifa 11. It's probably one of the only games that no-one in the office has much experience with.

Anything.

More fighting games are a must, but yeah stuff like racing/SSX games would be fun too though I'm not entirely sure how they'd work in the tournament setup. I guess they'd have to set up the elimination process through whoever was last during each match? Or something like that.

any sports title (madden, NHL, MLB, whatever)

Full damage Forza 3
Maybe Teams BF:BC2  (lol)
Jackie Chan Fists of Fire
Company of Heroes


Some of those might be unreasonable, but I think any of them would make for good watchin!

Other than that?  Absolutely anything, regardless of the game's quality.

Like the staff keeps saying, it's a rare game that the whole staff is invested in. I don't really see any realistic suggestions here...Starcraft for instance: Don't think most of the office plays that much, and Brad would kill.


That said I hope they find something that's not a fighter.

I would like to see Jeff's Galaga skills. Has Konami ever brought that Simpsons game over to the live arcade? They should get on that.

It's not the format the Scrub League usually take, but I would love to see people from the Whiskey Media offices team up in League of Legends or Heroes of Newerth against the community/random internet dudes.

They could also make it internal by making two teams(they have enough for that right) and battling it out.

SC2 and LoL

#27 Posted by DarkShaper (1338 posts) -

It's a Scrub League so Brad nor Norm would not take part in it.

Would love to see an SC2 one would be lots of fun to see people like Dave and Vinny go at it.

Achron?

I did not even know there is other scrub league that the MK one, where can I find them?

Also, any fighting game or sports game is good.

Somehow, I would love to see them play a game like Mario Kart or Mario Party. These kind of dumb games.

You guys are all thinking about games with way to high a barrier to entry to most of the staff, and most FPS are out of the question as most of the staff are familiar with that format and it doesn't really work in that format. I think battle tetris could be a good scrub league or maybe a new smash brothers when it comes out, fighting games seem like the easiest fit. Gears of War could have maybe worked in a wingman format with teams of two?

Fifa

A MOBA, if they only play with each other.

Smash Brothers, Soul Calibur 4, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, any fighting game really.

Edit: Super Puzzle Fighter and Pong would also be cool.

@Fear_the_Booboo:

To my knowledge the only scrub league games have been MK and Pacman

I think watching them trying to play league of legends would kind of funny.
