Veteran Member - Level 13
Sorry for the late delay. I got together with some of my friends today, and they surprised me with a game of kickball. So I'm still recovering from that. And we had a late entry. (No problem dude, it was good) As for the week, we have had one of the best weeks in awhile. A grand total of eight. So, lets get started to the recap, eh?
A Tale Of An Assassin by Ghost
Ace13 says-My tale as an assassin of the Dark Brotherhood, set in Skyrim. I'm a
killing machine who one day questions her next target, ends up escaping
jail after being caught hesitating at my target's house, and escapes to
find my own purpose. I thought this was a really fantastic premise! It
reminded me of La Femme Nikita, which I really enjoyed. And though I
favor using magic in Skyrim, my second (but equally awesome) weapon of
choice is a bow, so I liked how you included that here.
DJH says- Ghost tells the story of a simple assassin, with a change of heart. I liked how she got out of her contract by going to jail, and escaping. Also, I feel bad for the horse....
A Night To Remember by Darth-Carbonite
Ace13 says-This was another story set in Skyrim, except here I am a member of the
Thieves Guild who is challenged to a drinking contest by a stranger
named Sam, in return for a special staff. Even though I haven't finished
this quest in Skyrim, I really enjoyed it. I like how you made me a
thief, because stealing/lockpicking is one of my favorite things to do
in-game. Overall, it was a really entertaining story to read!
DJH says- A perfect example of doing dirty business with the Thieves Guild, and to never drink with Strangers. Perfect example.
Silent Assassin by DJH
Ace13 says-In this story, set in the upcoming game Dishonored, I am an awesome
assassin disguising myself as a party-goer in order to take out my next
target... which turns out to be a guy named Nate. For not being able to
play the game yet, you did a great job DJ with setting the tone/action.
The little details were great too, like the photos, me calling myself
Jade (I'm playing Beyond Good and Evil now) and my target being Nate, as
in Nate Drake. I cracked up when I turned Nate down. Business is
business, but I could never do that if it really could happen! I cracked
up several times reading this!
DJH says- This guy still going? And to top it off, he did a GaMe on a game that's not even out yet! ugh.
An Odd Warden Indeed by Theora Craft
Ace13 says-This intriguing story is set in Dragon Age, and
tells about my awesome adventures as Warden Commander Ace (awesome
title, by the way) being shared around a campfire. It was very clever
and I was chuckling throughout it. From my initiation essentially being a
tea party, to passing out in the tent before the Joining ceremony, to
scaring the demon out of Connor, it was very entertaining! And the way
you wrote the story was great too.
DJH says- A story about someone telling the story of the great Warden Ace. A clever little unique narrative about her tales as the Warden.
Uncharted: Ace's Fortune by benderstrike64
Ace13 says-Bender, this was full of awesomeness! In this tale, I'm an aspiring
fortune hunter who helps Sully rescue Nate. It was just incredible. I
loved the title, and the fact that you surprised me with using one of my
favorite game worlds (Uncharted) was nice. You included little snippets
of Italian throughout too! I will never be a fortune hunter, but I'm
thrilled I got to in your story. I parachuted, dodged bullets, and saved
Nate myself. I'm glad you had fun writing it, because it was so much
fun reading it!
DJH says- A snazzy little story about an aspiring young treasure hunter chasing her dreams of becoming like the great Nathan Drake. But only to end up rescuing him.
The Burning Eco by dadarkheart
Ace13 says-When you told me you wrote a story, out of any of them, I knew this
would be the wild-card. Here, I am an "incredible female" Daxter finds
to set up with Jak, who needs to... hook up. First I make Jak complete a
series of obstacles though. Out of any of the entries, I laughed the
most with this one. This was so ridiculous with innuendos, but so
hilarious. I definitely was not expecting this at all... especially the
ending implying me and Daxter have history together. I don't know if I
can look at one of my favorite childhood dynamic duos the same!
DJH says- ^ What she said. (Hey, I can use that properly here!)
Ace In The Hole by xking595x
Ace13 says-In this continuation of king's Halo GaMe series, there's Gold, Silver,
Walker and I. First off, I have to say the title was very clever. I
liked it a lot- I was Ace... the ace in the hole! The pace of the story
was great. And I really liked reading how tough I was, being a "slave
for appearances." Loved that line, laying down the law! This was a great
continuation, and it was pretty cool to have different GI GaMe winners
interacting. You left us all hanging with that cliffhanger! Oh, the
DJH says- The continuation of King's Halo series. Always an entertaining piece that always leaves us wanting more. But with a shocking ending to this one.
Ace Up Her Sleeve by markus1142
Ace13 says-This was the late entry, but it was definitely worth the wait. This
story is set in the world of Front Mission, where I am a doctor of
mechanical engineering, who has an epic showdown with an enemy mech one
night. I've never heard of this game before, but I enjoyed the story a
lot! It was a very epic tale, and I like how I was the underdog who came
out winning in the end. It was great to see me progress from being
confused and scared, to all-powerful in my mech. I liked the little
details you included, like Rome (which my family's near) and me taking
medical classes (which I really want to do as a career). Most of all, I
felt like Kaylee from Firefly, which was just awesome!
DJH says- Using everything we know about ace, markus here presents us with a great, albeit late, but great story.
First of all, I just wanted to say a huge thank you
to everyone who took the time to write me a GaMe tale. I honestly
enjoyed every story so much, and I was so excited to see myself in such
different scenarios! So thanks again. This was a tough choice to make,
but Darth, I really like how you wrote my story. It was very
well-written, and the way you wrote the atmosphere and dialogue
especially made me feel as if I was there. Very vivid. I also like how
you included my PSN tag as my full name, which was creative. So with
this being said, congratulations to you!
And a big congratulations to Darth-Carbonite! (I can already smell the Star Wars GaMe's now) So to those who want to participate, you can find his profile here.
As for you Ace, go ahead and put the badge on your profile. You earned it.
