Nice work on last week's ConQuest, everyone! It took less than three days for 2000 users to guess that Johnny V has his hands and hair in a pair of Disney games, that Innergy was totally a thing that happened, and that there were in awful lot of fitness games at this year's Electronic 3 Expo.
== TEASER ==As far as I'm concerned, anyone who completed this quest was a winner. But who among you is the most winner? Who among you has the guts to be randomly selected by a cold, soulless machine algorithm written by Sean Coonce in about 20 minutes? I'll tell you who has the guts: these users, right here.

Winner of Stoked: Big Air Edition, Signed By Sean Coonce
Congratulations, friends! You completed that quest harder than anyone. The algorithm knows what you've done.
And now, with a new week, we've got a new quest! We've got three different prizes this week, and they barely have anything to do with each other! Our giveaways are as tenuously linked as our segues!
And speaking of segways, let's glide towards our first prize! Remember Super Street Fighter IV? Pretty good game, right? Now... do you remember this video?
This was the Mailbag video where the Giant Bomb crew was sent a mysterious boxing glove holding a single rose in the mail from Capcom, effectively confirming that Dudley would be a playable character when Street Fighter got Super.
Well, friends, that boxing glove can be yours. That's right! This single boxing glove--with no discernible markings hinting at its video game origin, and is, for all intents and purposes, a regular boxing glove--can be yours if you win the ConQuest! Those other folks won't know what it means... but you will! Also, we lost the rose.
Next, we switch accoutrement from boxing gloves to party masks with this sweet Bioshock 2 Splicer mask, straight from the fine folks at 2K games! Now, you too can choose whether you'll fight the parasites of Rapture or exploit them! There's nothing on the mask to keep it strapped to your face, but that's nothing scotch tape can't fix! Be careful though: this mask looks like it was taken off of a splicer in 1959, and smells like it's been underwater for 50 years too. So....smelly mask prize. Great.
And finally, why not wear your old mask and new glove and use it to punch a blow up dummy? Well, you can't, because you'll only be able to win one of these three prizes. But even without a boxing glove and a decrepit mask, you'll still be able to win this panda bear blow--up dummy, courtesy of Tekken 6 and Namco! Have you ever wanted to beat up a panda? Sure, we all have! Well, now you can beat up Panda, the panda from Tekken, from the comfort of your own home! Pretend you're Heihachi, giving Panda the panda the business!
One of these three amazing prizes could be yours if you're one of the first users to complete the latest quest set... and this week's set is extra special! You see, our latest quest set, Don't Get Moderated, was written and designed by our very own Giant Bomb moderation team! The men and women who work tirelessly to make sure our wiki is full of original, high quality content, and our forums are full of the right kind of assholes have created this sweet quest set for everyone on the site.
To complete the ConQuest and enter to win prizes, you'll have to remember what games enraged the public, what games let you choose between one--color throw--ups or two--color throw--ups, and find out which games required you to use all of your fingers to complete. If you want to get started, check out the Manhunt 2 page!
You have until Friday, July 9th to enter, or until 2000 users bring the quest home. Contest submissions close at 3PM PST, so get your quest completed. And heck, if you liked the quest, send a PM Blast to them letting you know how you feel... or to beg them for hints when you've only have two games left to find in the scavenger hunt.
Now for the depressing part of any contest post: the legal rules. To be eligible to win these prizes, you must abide by the following conditions:
- You must be 18 years old or older to enter (though you can still complete the quest regardless).
- You must be a resident of the United States. We know it isn't fair that Alaska counts as the U.S while Canada and Europe get short shrift. I mean.... especially for Canada and Alaska. They're right next to each other! I dunno. Blame your congressman.
- No purchase is necessary to enter. If you send us a postcard with your name and address, that is totally a viable way to enter the contest!
And that's it for this weeks ConQuest! Congratulations to the winners of last week's ConQuest, and good luck to everyone competing this week! Just remember to bring a damp towel or gas mask with you into the wiki. It won't take long for the wiki to get a little... smoggy.
