You know, things have been so crazy this month, I thought maybe this would be the first year I simply forgot to hold our annual video game pumpkin carving contest. But then we had this hurricane Sandy blow into the northeast yesterday, and while we here in Albany managed to take minimal damage from the massive storm, a lot of people on the east coast (including members of this community) have had to evacuate because their homes flooded and their property destroyed. So despite it being the night before Halloween, we’ve partnered with Level Up Studios to issue you a challenge. Submit an original video game themed pumpkin carving for this year (in the next 24 hours) and Level Up will donate $10 to the American Red Cross Relief Effort for every entry received. It’s a tight deadline I know, but I also know a lot of you guys were expecting this contest and probably carved up some winners already! And of course, we will be offering up some prizes for the top entries as well! I have no details on what those prizes will be, but this year we will do no themed categories… it’s a straight up video...
It’s the most wonderful time of they year! No, not the time with picturesque snowfalls and gift giving… it’s the time of year for shooting angry wizards with rocket launchers and fighting off bomb carrying waves of zombies! Yes it’s Halloween event time in TF2, and Gentleman Heavy’s servers are all set for your wizard wrangling/zombie burning needs!

Yes, finally… I have some contest runners-up to post! Sorry for the delay but Fred and I were out of town until Nov 7th for Youmacon and we fell a bit behind!

Again, there were many more favorites we would’ve liked to pick… but we really had to limit ourselves! However if you submitted an entry this year and included a mailing address you’ll be receiving a small bonus prize just for entering! Congrats to everyone for another successful year of vegetable artistry! You guys are truly amazing!
Hoooooly crap… 50 entries even with my super last notice? I AM IMPRESSED. Sorry we’re getting this up on the site… these guys take a lot longer to go through than you might think!
