    I just saw this news and thought I would share it here.

    Il just copy and paste ...

    Hello there and welcome to!

    After the great success of our previous competition, we are delighted to announce our second competition [​IMG]

    This time around the Competition is taking a fairer route, you can only enter Games into this competition. The rules are changed too. The games you can enter are no longer tied to being "Retro themed", no. You can now enter whatever type of Game you like, but you can still gain a 10% judging bonus for having "Retro elements/level" in your Game.

    The Prizes this time around are a little different but still awesome. First place is Rock Band 2 + Drums, Guitar, and Microphone! The other places are Retro Consoles all in there Original Boxing and complete with games & controllers! We decided to offer these as the additional prizes due to the nature of our "Retro" orientated site.

    As an added bonus the top poster here between now and the end of the competition (staff excluded), will receive a copy of Halo: Combat Evolved for the Xbox + a mystery gift!
